To say Hong Kong is one of my favourite cities in the world is an understatement. So, when an invitation came to check out the city’s food scene, I jumped at the opportunity. In a town where the only constant in its restaurants is the dizzying speed at which they open, I knew there would be much to discover since my last visit two years ago. And I wasn’t disappointed. We ate and drank our way through both sides of this dynamic city and every single meal I devoured was in an establishment new to me. Read about our delicious discoveries on page 86. After chatting with journalist Matt Brace about his recent trip to Finland’s Åland Islands, I just knew we had to share this special destination with you. It really…

Embrace Tasmania’s dark side Ready to get naked? In a festival of memorable moments, Dark Mofo’s standout is still the annual Nude Solstice Swim. The assembled brave souls (more than 1000 in 2018) dive into Tasmania’s chilly Derwent River to welcome the light after the longest day of the year. Not your usual festival fodder, but perfectly aligned with an event that takes its cues from ancient winter solstice rituals. Events across the island include the Dark Mofo Winter Feast on Hobart’s docks and public art displays including those at MONA (Museum of Old and New Art). Oh, and there’s usually a ceremonial burning. If you’re a couple who loves a little drama, head south for the winter. 7-23 June 2019. darkmofo.net.au Follow your bliss to Marrakech So, you’ve danced your way around…

Dive into a luxe marine safari Imagine a holiday so special it comes with a photographer to capture those pinch-me moments. Not to mention a full support crew including butler, masseur, chef and dive instructor. It’s the A-lister treatment you can expect on a new series of marine safaris from Secret Retreats. Swap dry land for eight to 12 nights aboard the 26.1-metre Sequoia yacht, exploring the wonderous wilderness of the Bird’s Head Seascape archipelago in Indonesia’s West Papua region. Ideal for one or two couples, the custom-designed yacht (inspired by classic timber vessels but with all the mod cons) features two deluxe suites, sky deck and full kitchen. Each day is a fresh adventure: think swimming through waterfalls, enjoying the onboard cinema, and drifting around coral-rich dive sites (including exquisite…

another day in paradise

Dreaming of a pristine tropical oasis? Enjoy the best that the Solomon Islands – or the ‘Solomons’, as the locals call it – has to offer with these unforgettable experiences. 1. Go island-hopping With 900-odd specks of sand awaiting couples, the Solomons seem made for island-hopping. After touching down in the capital of Honiara, catch a scenic small-plane flight out to the Western Province for clusters of jungle-topped isles surrounded by turquoise waters – a blissfully unspoiled region known for its heart-stopping adventures (diving and surfing are big here). Don’t miss visiting Gizo for its enchanting villages, Olosana for its deserted beaches and fabled Kennedy Island where JFK found himself stranded on a WWII mission. There’s also plenty of postcard-perfect islands to be found just off the coast of the main island of Guadalcanal.…

20 iconic hotels of the world

1/ La Mamounia, Morocco The word ‘oasis’ gets thrown around a lot, but for Morocco’s La Mamounia it’s completely justified. Situated in the heart of Morocco’s buzzing centre, Marrakech, the palace-turned-hotel feels blissfully tranquil. Walled manicured gardens dotted with ancient olive trees surround La Mamounia, making guests feel as if they’ve entered a destination within a destination. And there’s oh-so much to see and experience within its ochre-hued walls. Four acclaimed restaurants, a traditional Moroccan spa, a palm-shaded pool and private riads are hedonistic delights worth discovering here, but the hotel’s Arabic-Andalusian architecture alone is enough to – quite literally – stop you in your tracks. A tribute to the skills of Morocco’s craftsmen and women, La Mamounia is adorned with intricate tiled mosaics and gebs (carved plaster) – a reminder of…
