Each week we discover a new city or neighbourhood somewhere in the world via its architecture, food, gardens, art, literature and cultural history.
Bookshops part one
It's time to go on a journey of the mind around the world via the places that are the ultimate conduits for escape — the bookstore. In part one of two, discover Wales' 'town of books', and Juliana Engberg's bibliophile guide to London and Paris.
Belfast is kaleidoscopic — a product born out of contested histories and the desire to break free from it. As Northern Ireland commemorates 100 years since partition, take a journey through a city that is shedding its historical sectarian binaries.
The Enchanted City
Come on an urban tramp, in search of enchantment, to discover the industrial city anew.
The Philippines is a melange of Austronesian, Spanish, Chinese, and American histories which have their focal point in the capital, Manila. But to really see Manila as it is now, throw out everything you've been told… because it's time to head to the mall.
Hop on board one of the best transit systems in the world and arrive on time to enjoy hot pot, oyster omelettes and braised pork over rice; before taking in the culturally eclectic sites that make up Taiwan's capital.
New Zealand Bubble
Our travel bubble with New Zealand might be closed for now (thanks, Delta variant) but it doesn't mean we can't plan for the future.
