Many of us love to travel. Whether by plane, ship, train, car, tuk-tuk, bicycle or even by foot, the journeys we take reflect our personalities and aspirations. Our Voyages issue showcases great destinations and opulent modes of travel as well as what you may want to take with you on these trips.
In this wired age of the internet, social media and communication, the world seems to be getting smaller and smaller, day by day. It may seem that the period of grand voyages are over, but not here at Dreams. We generally see a trend of more bespoke luxury travel. Off-the-beaten-track and culturally rich destinations are gaining popularity among travelers. Thus we have endeavored to compile some of the most exotic and interesting travel concepts available out there for you our readers.
We open our Voyages issue with an article on the legendary trunks of Louis Vuitton in Passion for Living. We also present a variety of journey options, among them: by sea, The Samata, a luxury dive vessel which conducts custom-designed trips around Bali and the Komodo islands, by rail: the lavish Orient Express trains, and by land, the indulgent yet healthy MesaStila Wellness retreat in Central Java. In Expertise, we feature Boston-based world-renowned architect Moshe Safdie and event designer extraordinaire, Preston Bailey. In Elements of Leisure, we feature the world’s number one restaurant, noma and I write about my visit to The Press Club, run by MasterChef Australia’s chef George Calombaris. This issue’s Luxe Folio fashion essay has a nautical theme and is entitled, Set To Sail. We also have a 9-page feature on some of the best spas in the region. Our Dream Escapes section is packed with great destination features on Macau, Muscat and Myanmar (Bagan).
Enjoy your voyages!
