JETSET Five fash­ion­able women re­veal their travel hot spots.

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - The Escape Bazaar -

Art di­rec­tor Sofia Sanchez de Be­tak brings as lit­tle as pos­si­ble when trav­el­ing to this ex­otic city. She stays at a pri­vate ho­tel that also houses Asli Tunca’s unique fur­nish­ings bou­tique. “I adore hunt­ing for vin­tage pieces at the Grand Bazaar and in the beau­ti­ful and vi­brant neigh­bour­hood of Galatasaray. I do most of my shop­ping there on day one. There are great bars with live mu­sic and an amaz­ing flea mar­ket, The Works. The Top­kapı Palace Harem is not to be missed, and I love to eat at Pan­deli, lo­cated on top of the

Spice Bazaar.”

Bergdor f Good­man se­nior vice pres­i­dent Linda Fargo de­scribes the is­land as “wildly in­ter­na­tional yet quintessen­tially Ital­ian. The heart of Capri is the Fontelina, a beach club where I en­joy leisure lunches of pasta von­gole and seafood lin­guine. The pa­per-thin pizza and ca­cio e pepe con tartufi at Aurora are must- or­ders, and an Aperol Spritz – the bril­liant- orange aper­i­tivo – is the drink on the pi­azza. When I'm not on the beach, I hire a charm­ing wooden boat called a gozzo to

cir­cle the rocky is­land.”

Natasha Kraal, editor- in- chief of BAZAAR Malaysia, took in the glo­ri­ous sum­mer view of the River Arno and iconic Ponte Vecchio, from the water­front ter­race of the Ho­tel Lun­garno in Florence. “It’s the per­fect point to catch that post­card panorama, ap­ple spritz in hand; just min­utes away from the mas­ter­pieces and his­tor­i­cal sites; and the most di­vine gelato at Ge­la­te­ria Santa Trinita.” Start your day with a quin­tes­sen­tial Floren­tine break­fast of fresh Tus­can pro­duce – the Borgo San Ja­copo restau­rant is Miche­lin-starred so book din­ner, too – be­fore a visit to the Fer­rag­amo mu­seum just across the river at the his­tor­i­cal

Palazzo Spini Feroni.
