Magazine Description

In this issue

Water and the Works. On the rare occasion, a trend comes along with enough allure to make you question your own style. In the realm of travel, small-boat cruises are stealing the show with exactly that kind of cool authority right now, tempting event strictly landlubbers to spend some time afloat on glorious vessels rolling through remote territories only accessible by water. In our cover story, Kendall Hill documents one through the Mergui Archipelago, a group of 800 islands off the southern coast of Myanmar that only became open to tourism in 1997. His accounts of the empty, powder-soft beaches are dreamlike, but it’s his descriptions of the Moken sea gypsies who live among them and the less glamorous realities of their home’s environment that linger. It’s a refreshing story that captures paradise along with its imperfections.
