Welcome to our travel issue. One long year later after being nestled in our homes, many of us are ready to start traveling again. 

In this issue, we have rounded up some great travel ideas. From new and notable restaurants to captivating destinations. This summer comes with infinite possibilities.

On the cover, we turned to The OWO Residences by Raffles. Situated at one of London’s most historically important and powerful addresses, the Old War Office, originally completed in 1906 and designed by British architect William Young.

Having undergone a monumental and painstaking transformation over the last five years, the London landmark is set to complete in 2022 and will also comprise the capital’s first Raffles hotel with 125-rooms and suites, a collection of nine restaurants and bars, and an immersive spa.

We hope you will, once again, enjoy learning and exploring new settings.
