For the adventurous traveler, Southeast Asia represents a classic battle between ambition and logistics (all those indirect-flights!); between planning for bucket-list bragging rights (Angkor Wat at sunrise) and leaving room for those can’t-script-it moments, like drinking moonshine and dancing till dawn in Laos. So we're dedicating a whole issue to this battle in our new #SoutheastAsia
edition—where we're naming it the destination of the year. Whether you wanted to spend, say, one week in Cambodia, or three weeks in Thailand and Vietnam (both good options, by the way), we've got the itinerary for you. What follows are the places, experiences, and itineraries we’re genuinely most excited about, so you can get going on your plans for your next trip. Head to the link in bio for a letter from our editor breaking it down, and pick up your issue on newsstands today.
