The Bucket List: Hong Kong Tatler Editors Share Their Dream Destinations
1/11 Luang Prabang, Laos
"Its enchanting mix of Buddhist heritage, French colonial architecture and misty jungle puts the former Laotian capital Luang Prabang top of my travel wish list. I’ll be ticking off this destination in a few weeks when I visit Rosewood Luang Prabang, a luxury hillside retreat, which opened earlier this year with an exclusive offering of only 23 villas and tented suites."
—Jakki Phillips, Editor-in-Chief
"Anywhere in Mexico. Tulum or Isla Holbox. Warm weather, beaches and Mexican food… need I say more?"
—Justine Lee, Fashion Director-at-Large
3/11 Tasmania, Australia
"Tasmania has always been high on my bucket list. It seems to have the perfect mix of culture—with attractions like the Museum of Old And New Art and Salamanca Market—and untouched wilderness waiting to be explored. I can’t wait to go this Christmas."
—Oliver Giles, Art and Culture Editor
4/11 Petra, Jordan
"The lost city of Petra, so I can channel my inner Indiana Jones."
—Emilie Yabut-Razon, Managing Editor

5/11 Reykjavic, Iceland
"A destination on my bucket list is Iceland, I would love to see The Northern Lights in person and to drench myself in The Blue Lagoon (this is the real reason I want to go)."
—Christian Barlow, Director of VIP Content and Communications
6/11 Marrakech, Morocco
"It's been at the top of my bucket list since I was little. I'm obsessed with Moroccan architecture and food."
—Coco Marett, Digital Editor
"You’ll find me in any countries off the beaten path, so the exotic, culturally vibrant Caribbean island of Cuba is inevitably on my bucket list. The idea of photographing the colourful streets of Havana and locals dancing salsa in open spaces, taking a ride in one of those vintage cars from the 1950s and sipping on mojito on the powdery white sand beaches makes Cuba an incredibly alluring destination to me."
—Pearl Yan, Digital Projects Editor
8/11 Azores Islands, Portugal
"Azores Islands off the coast of Portugal. My partner’s mother is from there and these volcanic islands boast greenery, black sand beaches and hot springs that rival those of Hawaii. I want to visit before any major hotels land there and the crowds follow suit."
—Rosana Lai, Fashion Editor

"I love all the vibrant colours around the city and I spent part of my childhood in France, where there’s a lot of Moroccan influence in music and food, so I would love to see it first-hand."
—Natasha Tang, Social Media Editor
