LIVING IT UP AT WALDORF ASTORIA BANGKOK

It’s not everyday I spend SGD$400 on a night’s stay at a hotel. But I did from 26- 28 March 2019. Hear me out. I’m not someone who necessarily is in that income bracket to easily drop that kind of money, but remember what they said about experiences? My first encounter with Andre Fu‘s work…

Festivals are a great showcase of a country’s culture – East or West – so time your schedule just right and you’ll witness the essence of their human legacy. If you’re still shopping for inspiration for 2019,…

SANTORINI, GREECE: THERA NO BETTER SUNSETS

When it comes to travel brochures, claims can sometimes be just hype. Santorini’s sunsets are legendary – and luckily for good reason.
