so far this year, as well as those you’d like to tick

off your list during the final four months of 2019.

If you like to be among the first to check out a

new spot, our round-up of the world’s hottest

new hotels (page 24) is guaranteed to pique your

interest. We’ve devoted 10 pages to giving you

a heads up on the buzziest new openings on the

planet, including Dubai’s new JA Lake View Hotel,

where we shot this month’s cover (turn to page 36

to see the full photoshoot).

For those seeking a trip packed with art and

culture, we’ve rounded-up some compelling trip

options, from checking out Het HEM, the hot

new art institute on the fringes of Amsterdam,

to following a contemporary art trail through the

Tuscan hills, and reacquainting yourself with the

mind-nourishing sites of Istanbul – you're sure to

find the perfect break for you.

Happy travels,
