Publisher's Note

One of our best bits about travel is seeing, tasting, touching and completely experiencing new cultures. And this issue we feature some of our favourites in the Culture Issue. We kick off with UNESCO-listed Luang Prabang and its surrounds, exploring the myriad temples and natural offerings. We’ve also got 2 special features this issue, beginning with our first-ever Coffee + Tea Special!

The Crowning Land - Journey Through Laos
Wedged between the confluence of the quiet Mekong and Nam Khan River, Luang Prabang exudes spirituality and serenity. The quieter, slower-paced cousin of frequented Vientiane, this tiny city – geographically stacked with rugged mountains, yawning caves, cascading waterfalls, and plenty of towering palm trees – is brimming with rich history.
Baroque Bavaria - Bavarian Heritage
Germany is dotted with plenty of UNESCO sites, attesting to the rich culture that has prevailed since the Middle Ages. The region of Bavaria is exceptionally rich in history, es­pe­cially when it comes to World Heritage sites and plentiful fairytale castles. The UNESCO towns of Füssen and Bamberg – both on either ends of Bavaria – are some fine ex­am­ples of what’s on offer.
Gear Guide
Dry Stuff - Montane Featherlite Down Jacket
Insulation doesn’t get much lower in weight or bulk than this. Exceptionally light, the Montane Featherlite™ Down Jacket is highly versatile for year round mountain activities. Wear as a mid-layer when moving quickly in really cold conditions or as outer insulation on cool evening camps.
Action on the Road - Sony Action Cam Mini HDR-AZ1
The new Sony Action Cam Mini HDR-AZ1 (63g) enables you to capture images when you’re travelling, hiking, snorkelling, cycling, or surfing. It is bundled with a new Live-View remote with GPS which can be worn on your wrist, allowing you to adjust, play and delete films instantly while you wirelessly record with up to 5 cameras.
Mountain High
Adventures in the mountains can bring extreme weather that changes quickly, require physical and mental stamina and present many physical dangers. With proper planning and the right gear, you can be prepared for an amazing adventure no matter the elements.
