Welcome note

With the Eid Al Fitr holidays here and schools breaking up for

the summer next month, you’ve got a couple more reasons

to take a trip. If you haven’t yet stuck a pin in the map, simply

turn to page 26 for eight jam-packed pages of inspiration.

From living the high life in a luxury treehouse,

to taking over an entire island in the Maldives and

climbing aboard Britain’s first new sleeper train in

35 years, get set to have a remarkable summer.

Before you get swept away with the season’s

travel frenzy, however, we suggest you curl up

with our long reads. This month, we take you to on

a fantasy trip to Cuba (page 36), on a journey to

uncover the authentic charms of Thailand (page

44) and on an adventure off the beaten track in

Namibia (page 50).

If you prefer to pack in a handful of long

weekends, we’ve taken a closer look at some of the

options you can tick off your list. A great place to

start is with Habiba Azab’s guide to Cairo (page

60), which tells you exactly how to get under the

skin of this fast-paced city.

Happy travels,

Faye Bartle
