Editor’s Note

Indonesia Tatler Traveller - - CONTENTS -

The fall is here and win­ter is com­ing. Soon it will be Christ­mas, and that means it’s time for fun fam­ily hol­i­days. So this is­sue, we are pre­sent­ing you with even more must-visit des­ti­na­tions for your year-end plan­ning, or just for a quick get­away. All are places that have left a mark in our hearts and we hope they fire up your in­ner glo­be­trot­ter. New York is where we shot our cover photos with Ra­line Shah, who names the busy city as her favourite place in the world. Set out­doors in fran­tic Man­hat­tan, the shoot was pretty hec­tic as busy peo­ple lead­ing busy lives passed us by in down­town Soho. The team was, of course, amaz­ing, and we were proud to have iconic se­nior stylist Fred­die Leiba on board, while Joseph Chen, the leg­endary New York pho­tog­ra­pher, took all the snaps. It was a fun and fan­tas­tic ex­pe­ri­ence for us and also for Ra­line, whose friend al­lowed us to pho­to­graph her cute white puppy. Mov­ing on to warmer breezes in more trop­i­cal climes, we travel to east Africa to re­veal the best bush lodges and lux­ury beach­side hide­aways the con­ti­nent has to of­fer. We also dis­cover the Che­val Blanc Rand­heli, one of the most ex­clu­sive and lux­u­ri­ous pri­vate is­land re­sorts in the Mal­dives. Of course, we can’t ig­nore our very own crown jewel, Bali, and we present to you some of our top re­sort picks on the is­land. De­spite the stun­ning views, scener­ies and qual­ity of life of­fered by such trop­i­cal par­adises, Sin­ga­porean ty­coon Anil Thadani prefers to slice his yacht through ice jams on a quest to fol­low the Arc­tic ex­plo­ration route, and he shares with us the spec­tac­u­lar scenery of the Cana­dian Arc­tic. We also present a se­lec­tion of un­der-the-radar des­ti­na­tions for even the savvi­est of trav­ellers. Last but not least, don’t for­get to travel in style by check­ing out our Style­book sec­tion. Happy hol­i­days!
