Special occasions always catapult you on a journey of nostalgia. We have come a long way, and in the last few years, Travel + Leisure India & South Asia has travelled with some of the most well-known actors, writers, entrepreneurs, musicians, designers, and more. Together, we have discovered new places and experiences, which has strengthened our belief that there’s nothing better than #GoingPlacesWithPeople, and travelling mindfully and consciously.
What to expect in the 16th Anniversary issue?
We are marking our 16th year in India; our anniversary issue takes you on a whirlwind trip around the world to celebrate 16 very unique festivals. On our cover is the golden girl of the moment and box office favourite Rashmika Mandanna who flew with us to Abu Dhabi for an exclusive shoot. On her first ever cover shoot with T+L India, the Coorg girl spills the beans on why she wants to come back to Abu Dhabi, her favourite travel destinations, and more.
The festive season is here, and with it comes the urge for retail therapy. Don’t miss the international shopping guide in this edition that is very well timed. In other stories, find how Maya Bay in Thailand has reopened with new sustainability goals for travellers after being shut for a coral rehabilitation programme; go on a soulful journey to Santiniketan in West Bengal as part of India Inside Out; and follow a father-daughter duo to the backwoods of Alaska in Through The Lens.
