Philippine Tatler Traveller goes to Hanoi for this issue's cover story as Philippine Airlines launches its latest routes, opening pathways to more of Asia's cultural gems. With PAL's new direct flight, the scenic Vietnamese capital is now only three hours away, making it an easy option for a long weekend-getaway. What makes Hanoi so alluring is that a visit to this city is like being transported to another world, suspended in time between a French colonial past and a bustling Asian present. We were billeted at the Sofitel Legend Metropole—considered the city's most prestigious address—in the French Quarter, within walking distance to many must-see sights. Strolling along tree-lined streets and tranquil Hoan Kiem lake, you are immediately impressed by the seamless dichotomy between colonial-style buildings and Oriental temples. Behind the doors of many of these finely-preserved heritage buildings lie the most charming cafés serving up traditional pho, bahn mi, and the ubiquitous Vietnamese drip-coffee. Let our pages take you on to other fascinating destinations where wonderful surprises await beyond closed doors. From the magic realism of San Miguel de Allende's charming streets and the baroque masterpieces enshrined within Malta's quiet chuches, to the powerful history of the African American people at Washinton DC's Smithsonian Institution and the flood of flavours along the road from Fez to Marrakech, explore new worlds.
