    Everything's coming up Rosewood

    Life, Parisa Pichitmarn, Published on 29/06/2018

    » Rosewood is not a name that rings any personal bells, but I first unknowingly came across it while on a night out in Beijing. The so-far-lousy night took a turn when the social editor of a high-society magazine ushered me to get off my stool at the dingy bar we were in. We were first-timers in Beijing and unlike the Western press in the group, she was in no mood for pole dancers and Mandarin rock covers. She was the most well-informed and refined tippler of the Thai group, so we trustingly followed her taste to Rosewood Beijing, knowing whatever it was, it wasn't going to be the Chinese version of Patpong. It was the right decision, the one we should have gone with three hours earlier. What greeted us upon arrival were stunning high ceilings, stylish understatement and immense relief that there are chic and modern places to head to in the post-Mao capital.

    Local luxury

    Guru, Eric E Surbano, Published on 07/09/2018

    » Whenever you think of beach getaways, you probably think of places like Bali, Hawaii or if you've got the dough, the Caribbean or Maldives. Basically, anywhere but somewhere local. But why does going somewhere local have to be a bad thing? Is it because there's this mindset that just going local is not glamorous enough? Don't get me wrong, there's no problem with a beach getaway abroad, but it's only glam if you've got the bucks for it. I humbly suggest an alternative: why not just spend the same amount of money you would on an OK beach vacay in another country on a luxurious beach getaway in Phuket?

    More than a beach getaway

    Life, Karnjana Karnjanatawe, Published on 27/02/2014

    » You may have visited Koh Chang before and might, like me, have always turned right, towards the west, after disembarking the ferry. Of course, after five hours on the road from Bangkok to Trat and a 30-minute ferry ride from the mainland to the island, you surely want to pay a visit to the white sand beaches and crystal clear water.
