LUXURY magazine has reached a milestone – we’re 10 years of age. It’s hard to believe as we flick through issue #1 and take a moment to reflect on the destinations, hotels and journeys that we have shared in our pages over the past years.

So to this issue. We explore Angkor Wat, a source of inspiration and a pilgrim site for all. We journey to the manicured lush tea plantations of Sri Lanka then to the country’s stunning coast. It’s then to the Swiss Alps, where we breathe in the pristine alpine air and marvel at the dramatic landscapes.

We travel on The Ghan through the red heartland of Australia, taking in the amazing natural beauty and enjoying Outback hospitality. On another train journey, The Belmond Royal Scotsman takes us for an unforgettable trip through the Scottish Highlands in summer, which are adorned in masses of wild purple heather.

We introduce Silversea’s new ship Silver Muse, touch on the benefits of small ship cruising with APT and sail away with Windstar.

Our Top 5 Boutique Hotels from around the world showcase how holidays can be just as much about the stay as it is about the destination.

We hope you enjoy the read.
