YALLINGUP GAL­LERIES, WEST­ERN AUS­TRALIA I stum­bled across this lit­tle gem off Caves Road in Yallingup. The art re­flects the lo­cal land­scapes of West­ern Aus­tralia and the colours and emo­tions are in­cred­i­bly vi­brant. www.yallingup­gal­ ETRO, SIN­GA­PORE I came across this la­bel in Canada and have dis­cov­ered Sin­ga­pore has two fan­tas­tic stores; it’s cut­ting-edge Ital­ian lifestyle fash­ion. KIL­GOUR, LON­DON This store is very el­e­gant with mod­ern fit­tings and su­perb wooden fix­tures. Its cloth­ing range is a clas­sic blend of French and English cuts with great fab­rics. www.kil­ BUL­GARI HO­TEL, BALI Lo­cated near Uluwatu, this prop­erty is one of Bali’s new­est. Think tra­di­tional Ba­li­nese fea­tures, fab­u­lous cliff­side vil­las with private plunge pools and two great restau­rants. I highly rec­om­mend loung­ing at the bar at sun­set.­wicol­lec­ ROCKY MOUN­TAINS, CANADA I have been trav­el­ling here since I was eight and the scenery and ma­jes­tic colour of Lake Louise, in par­tic­u­lar, is breath­tak­ing. Dur­ing the drive (from Cal­gary or Van­cou­ver) you will usu­ally en­counter black bears, deer, elks and moun­tain goats. If you are re­ally lucky you may ex­pe­ri­ence the nat­u­ral won­der of the north­ern lights (aurora bo­re­alis). www.banf­ SURF­ING, SRI LANKA I love surf­ing, al­though I have less and less time to en­joy it. I was re­cently in Sri Lanka, down south at the Aman­re­sorts’ prop­erty Aman­wella at Tan­galle. One of the staff is an avid surfer so the gen­eral man­ager ar­ranged for him to take me to his favourite break. We spent a few hours in the sun on per­fect waves among large leatherback tur­tles. www.aman­re­ Sharon Fowler BRADLEY Cocks is se­nior vice-pres­i­dent Asi­aPa­cific of Kiwi Col­lec­tion, a lux­ury ho­tel in­for­ma­tion re­source for trav­ellers.
