24 Hours in Krabi

Surrounded by towering outcrops of karst limestone, Krabi is a major jumping-off point to some of Thailand’s most beautiful islands, such as Ko Phi Phi and Ko Lanta. Most visitors breeze straight through town, but it’s worth pausing here to soak up the spectacular setting and experience authentic Thai culture.

24 hours in Shanghai

Shanghai, a gateway to China built around the Yangtze River Delta. A historical and cultural disorientation in the heart of China’s biggest city and economic epicentre. Thanks to its fascinating colonial past, neon-lit mismatched architecture, and neck-achingly high skyscrapers (it’s home to the second tallest in the world), Shanghai is a must-see destination.

24 Hours in Adelaide

Adelaide’s graceful colonial-era buildings are elegantly laid out in leafy parkland beside the River Torrens, but its small-city charm can be deceiving: the capital of South Australia has a vibrant multi-ethnic population, a liking for pop-up shops and experimental festivals, and a thriving live music scene. Its inner-city laneways buzz with restaurants and cafés, while good museums prove the city’s cultural bent. This is one of Australia’s most agreeable urban destinations, made for laid-back lingering.

Shanghai’s boom years came at the turn of the 20th century, resulting in incredible art deco architecture that’s still visible all over the city. The legendary Bund waterfront, quaint former French Concession, and futuristic Lujiazui districts all add up to a city of contrasts that’s just bursting with promise.

24 hours in Malé

In contrast to the pristine beaches and idyllic turquoise lagoons of the resort islands, is the Maldives’ frenetic yet fascinating capital city. Tourism is the biggest economy in this Sunni Muslim society (the country welcomes almost a million visitors per year); fishing is the second-largest economy. Speedboats carrying tourists to resorts criss-cross over the channel, iPhones buzz in the coffee shops, scooters weave through the narrow streets, and colourful fishing boats chug in and out of the harbour. The Maldivians have a vibrant heritage and are believed to originate from India, Sri Lanka, Africa, and Arabia. Ancient mosques and souvenir shops selling traditional handicrafts stand alongside glittering high-rise offices on this compact 2.2km2 island.
