From China Eastern

国将历史底蕴和现代气息完美融合在一起。比如,在中国西部, 您会在神奇的丝绸之路上看到各式各样的古代文物,其中很 多都是在近代偶然发现的。仅莫高窟一处就有2,000多尊彩塑。 中国福建省有大量历史遗迹等待您的探索,比如闻名遐迩的客 家土楼和没有车辆行驶的鼓浪屿。 但如果您在旅行中感兴趣的是闪闪发亮的大楼和现代化的设备, 那么中国将是您的不二之选。一系列奢华典雅的酒店刚刚在北京落 户,其中就包括富丽堂皇的北京宝格丽酒店。在麻辣之都重庆,您 还会在奢华酒店中发现精致餐厅。身在中国,您永远不会感到无聊。

hina is a country that embraces the past and present simultaneously. For example, head west and you’ll discover an array of ancient artefacts along the mystical Silk Road. Some of these wonders were only discovered by chance in recent times. The Mogao Caves alone contain more than 2,000 painted statues. In Fujian, there are also plenty of historical sites to explore, such as the iconic tulous, and car-free Gulangyu Island. On the other hand, if it’s shiny buildings and mod-cons that feed your travel bug, then there’s nowhere better than China. A new wave of luxury hotels have flowed into Beijing, including the lustrous Bulgari Beijing resort. In the spicy capital of Chongqing, you’ll also find opulent hotels perfectly paired with on-site fine-dining restaurants. There’s never a shortage of amazing experiences to be had in China.

road trip, but with sights of shipwrecks dominating beaches and waves crashing around the Twelve Apostles, there will be plenty of reasons to extend your stay. visitgreatoceanroad.org.au

When you’ve only got a few days to pack in a quick holiday, you’ll need a town with everything at your fingertips. We explore some of the best escapes this summer. 当只有几天时间度假时,您就需要到一 个一切皆触手可及的小镇。我们在此 为您介绍一些最佳的避暑胜地。 46

#1 Torquay, Victoria No trip to Victoria is complete without a few days exploring the Great Ocean Road. Sunburnt cliffs, towering rainforests and endless coastal panoramas line the 243km of Australia’s favourite road trip. The threeday journey officially kicks off in Torquay, home of Victoria’s surf culture and the famous Bells Beach. Relaxed local cafes and coastal trails make up the bulk of your time here but this sleepy town should set the tone for the weekend to come. The Great Ocean Road is not a particularly long

托尔坎(TORQUAY) 维多利亚州 如 果 不 花 几 天 时 间 在 大 洋 路(G R E A T OCEAN ROAD)上探险一番,那么您的维 多利亚州之旅就不算完整。大洋路长达243 公里,是澳大利亚最受欢迎的公路旅行路 线,沿途尽是黝黑的悬崖、高耸的雨林和无 尽的海岸风光。为期3天的公路旅行在维多利 亚州冲浪文化之乡托尔坎和著名的拜耳斯海 滩(BELLS BEACH)正式拉开帷幕。沿大洋 路旅行并不需要特别长的时间,但沿途海滩 上遍布的沉船和十二使徒岩(THE TWELVE APOSTLES)汹涌的波浪,总会有诸多理由让 您停留更长的时间。

#4 Noosa, Queensland Noosa can get toasty in summer like everywhere in Queensland, but with Noosa Beach and an endless strip of bars, you should be able to cool off. The beauty of Noosa is its perfect balance of both indoor and outdoor activities. Whether you’re hiking through the National Park, browsing the weekly farmer’s market, visiting the Australia Zoo, hopping over to Fraser Island or simply keen to knock back a few cocktails at sunset, Noosa will keep you busy. The town is littered with beachfront resorts directly on the water, but nothing can beat the perfect location of Peppers Noosa Resort complete with its unobscured, picturesque views of Main Beach. peppers.com.au/noosa

#2 Daylesford, Victoria Summer shouldn’t be all about tropical beaches. Daylesford is a sum of all the best things Australia has to offer – the charm of a secluded country town meets the tranquility of spa country. Just 90 minutes from Melbourne, Daylesford is a town built for weekenders. Tucked in amongst the dense bush and rolling hills of the Great Dividing Range you’ll find dozens of natural spas and bathhouses, including Hepburn Bathhouse & Spa. As home to the largest concentration of mineral springs in Australia, rich in magnesium, calcium and silica, the region’s holistic springs have long drawn travellers seeking some much-needed R&R. hepburnbathhouse.com

#3 Port Douglas, Queensland Known famously as the gateway to the Great Barrier Reef (the world’s largest coral reef) and the Daintree National Park (a vast area of tropical rainforest wilderness), Port Douglas is the quieter and more relaxed sibling of Cairns. Whether it’s day trips to the reef or the rainforest, a scenic flight over the coastline, or simply slowing down for the day in town, Port Douglas keeps you busy. Spend the day eating and drinking at local favourite Salsa Bar and Grill, or organise a day of shopping in the local boutiques on Macrossan Street. You might even need to come back again to fit it all in. salsaportdouglas.com.au

努沙(NOOSA) 昆士兰州 夏天,努沙就像昆士兰州各地一样烈日炎炎, 但这里的努沙海滩(NOOSA BEACH)和各 色酒吧应该能够让您感到清凉。努沙之美在 于室内和室外活动在这里达到完美的平衡。 无论是徒步穿过国家公园,闲逛每周的农产 品市场,游览澳大利亚动物园(AUSTRALIA ZOO),前往弗沙岛(FRASER ISLAND)或 只是 想在日落时分喝上几杯鸡尾酒,努沙 都可以让您过得 相当充实。努沙有许多直 接建在水上的海滨度假村,但说到位置,非 PEPPERS NOOSA RESORT莫属——在这里, 主海滩(MAIN BEACH)的景色一览无余。

#5 Jervis Bay, New South Wales Jervis Bay is one of NSW’s ultimate coastal bushland escapes. The sprawling region ticks all the boxes for a weekend out of the city, with beaches, snorkelling, rainforests and even wineries and restaurants. Thanks to the area’s natural and secluded beauty, a handful of high-end restaurants and nature retreats have filled the pockets along the coast. While the main hub of Huskisson is home to all the local cafes and hotels, you’ll find the real highlights deep in the rainforest. Paperbark Camp is 34-hectare glamping retreat that you’ll share with dozens of resident kangaroos, possums and cockatoos. Waking up with nothing but the sounds of the rainforest is an experience like no other. paperbarkcamp.com.au 杰维斯湾(JERVIS BAY) 新南威尔士州 杰维斯湾是新南威尔士州海岸丛林中的终极 避暑胜地之一。这片广袤的地区囊括了在城 市之外度过一个完美周末的所有要素——海 滩、浮潜、热带雨林,甚至于酒庄和餐厅。由 于该区域的自然和宁静之美,沿着海岸有几 家高端餐厅和天然度假胜地。作为主枢纽城 市的赫斯基森(HUSKISSON)拥有所有当地 的咖啡馆和酒店,您还在会这里发现雨林深 处的真正亮点。PAPERBARK CAMP是一个 面积达34公顷的豪华露营地,在这里您会看 到袋鼠、负鼠和凤头鹦鹉等当地物种。醒来 的时候,耳边只有雨林的声音,这是一种多么 与众不同的体验。 48

“This crescent-moon Garden of Eden west of Port Macquarie is the ultimate secluded getaway” #6 Fremantle Western Australia This 19th century port town is part seaside village and part time capsule. Cafes and pubs dominate the scene here and you can lose entire afternoons at favourites like the Little Creatures Brewery and the Fishing Boat Harbour seafood restaurant. For water lovers, Port Beach and Leighton Beach are the hubs for all things surfing, watersports or simply relaxing on the white sand. For a change of pace, Fremantle’s history trail can easily eat up the whole day. The Roundhouse is Western Australia’s oldest public building; however, it’s the historic Fremantle Prison that draws the biggest crowds. fremantleprison.com.au

弗里曼特尔(FREMANTLE) 西澳大利亚州 这 座19 世 纪 的港口城 镇 是 一 个海边 的村 庄,在一定程 度上又是一个时间胶囊。这 里有很多的咖啡馆和酒吧,您可能会在最 受欢迎的LITTLE CREATURES BREWERY和 FISHING BOAT HARBOUR海鲜餐厅中度过 整个下午的时间。港口海滩(PORT BEACH) 和雷顿海滩(LEIGHTON BEACH)则是冲 浪和水上运动的天堂,您也可以简单地在 洁白的沙滩上放松身心。如果想换一下口味, 可以了解一下弗里曼特尔的历史。监狱圆屋 (ROUNDHOUSE)是西澳最古老的公共建筑, 然而真正吸引大批游客目光的还是费里曼特 尔监狱(FREMANTLE PRISON)。

#7 Lord Howe Island New South Wales You could spend anywhere between two days to two weeks on Lord Howe Island and never tire of it. With reasonably mild temperatures all year, the island is perfect for relaxing by the water or getting back to nature. This crescent-moon Garden of Eden west of Port Macquarie is the ultimate secluded getaway for explorers. Capella Lodge is the pinnacle of luxury on the island with 5-star rooms looking out over the iconic Mount Gower. Here you can spend half the day biking, hiking and scuba diving, but can always come back to wine, canapes and a high-end seafood feast with which to relax. lordhowe.com 豪勋爵岛(LORD HOWE ISLAND) 新南威尔士州 您可以在豪勋爵岛上呆两天到两周的时间,一 点都会不感到厌倦。岛上的气温全年都相当 温和,非常适合在水中放松或回归自然。位于 麦奎利港(PORT MACQUARIE)以西的伊 甸园(GARDEN OF EDEN)是探险者们的 终极度假胜地。CAPELLA LODGE是岛上最 为豪华的五星级酒店,可以在房间中眺望标 志性的高尔山(MOUNT GOWER)。在这里, 您可以花半天的时间骑自行车、徒步旅行和 潜水,并且可以随时返回酒店享用葡萄酒、点 心和高档海鲜盛宴。

#8 Blue Mountains New South Wales Setting out to explore 10,000 square kilometres of bushland is a daunting idea. The Blue Mountains, just two hours from Sydney, demands multiple visits to even catch a glimpse of everything on offer. The eight conservation areas are home to waterfalls, rainforest, hundreds of kilometres of trails and plenty of wildlife. The oil from over 100 species of ancient eucalyptus trees creates a deep blue haze over every lookout, making the mountains a photographer’s dream year round. The sprawling Hydro Majestic, sitting atop the Megalong Valley, offers an opportunity to experience nature without sacrificing creature comforts. hydromajestic.com.au 蓝山(BLUE MOUNTAINS) 新南威尔士州 出发去探索面积达10,000平方公里的丛林。 蓝山距离悉尼只有2个小时的路程,这里的8 个保护区有瀑布、雨林和数百公里的小径,也 是许多野生动物的栖息地。100多种古老桉 树释放的桉树油生成深蓝色的氤氲,环绕在 瞭望台的四周,使得无论一天或一年当中的 任何时间,蓝山都能成为摄影师的梦想之地。 而位于米格朗谷(MEGALONG VALLEY)之 上的山顶饭店(HYDRO MAJESTIC)让您有 机会舒适地体验大自然。 49


Tasmania’s east coast is home to the famous Bay of Fires walk

More than a third of Kangaroo Island is dedicated to national park, making it the perfect nature retreat for any long weekend. You’ll find more than just kangaroos here. Echidnas, wallabies, possums and seals roam the island seemingly unaware of the humans crossing their path. The best way to experience the wild, bushstrewn landscape is either through hikes or exploring by car. A bit of local knowledge from the 4,000 or so residents, local farmers and producers goes a long way when uncovering all the corners of the island. If exploring in style is more your pace, Southern Ocean Lodge, perched high on the cliff tops, is a must-stay retreat that will cover all bases. southernoceanlodge.com.au

When most people think of Australia’s greatest road trips, little old Tassy can easily be overlooked. Grab a car and head north out of Hobart and you’ll be treated to a coastline made for roadtripping. Dramatic landscapes and long quiet beaches fill most of the trip, but you won’t ever be far from a quick detour to sample some local food and wine. The east coast is home to some of Australia’s best cool-climate wines, and you’ll be pushed to find any meal that doesn’t include locally made cheeses and seafood straight from the ocean. discovertasmania.com.au

Kangaroo Island, off the coast of South Australia

袋鼠岛(KANGAROO ISLAND) 南澳大利亚州 袋鼠岛三分之一以上的面积都属于国家 公园,这使之成为任何长周末的完美天 然度假胜地。您会发现这里不仅仅有袋 鼠。针鼹鼠、沙袋鼠、负鼠和海豹旁若无 人地在岛上漫步。体验这种四处都是灌 木丛的自然景观的最佳方式是徒步旅行 或驾车探索。岛上的居民、农民和生产 者约有4,000名,他们对于袋鼠岛的了解 会对您探索袋鼠岛的各个角落大有帮助。 如果您更喜欢优雅地探索,坐落于悬崖 顶上的SOUTHERN OCEAN LODGE可 谓包罗万象,绝对值得您在此停留一番。

#9 East coast, Tasmania

塔斯马尼亚东海岸(EAST COAST TASMANIA) 塔斯马尼亚州 当大多数人想到澳大利亚最棒的公路旅行 时,塔斯马尼亚州很容易被忽略。跳进一辆 车,沿霍巴特一路向北,您将会看到一条专 为公路旅行而生的海岸线。大部分的旅程中, 您会看到壮观的风景和海滩,也可以随时停 下来品尝一些当地的美酒美食。东海岸是澳 大利亚最好的凉爽气候葡萄酒的产地,在这 里的餐点大部分都与本地奶酪和海鲜相关。

All 68 rooms are furnished with a catalogue of 20th century furniture, primarily from Australia. The windows are hardwood, the beds made from reclaimed oak and the walls a mix of concrete, oak and earthen clay. Everything is out of the ordinary here. Throughout the hotel there’s hidden interior design gems like original, early 1950s floral-pattern Axminster broadloom carpet from England, armchairs designed by Viennese furniture maker Paul Ernst Kafka, and a massive 1970s Barovier & Toso Murano chandelier. Dining options include Monster Kitchen and Bar, which spreads across four spaces on the ground floor and serves local and seasonal produce from 6:30am to 1am. Original artworks sit in the Mosaic room and the Salon and Dining rooms, telling a story of Australian immigration. There’s no such thing as dull moment at Hotel Hotel.

HOME AND A BAY 宾至如归的拜伦湾 Escape the city life and get back to nature in style at one of the coolest and most relaxed beach towns in the country. Byron Bay is a town for Aussies to play, writes Trent van der Jagt. 对澳大利亚人而言,拜伦湾(Byron Bay)就是一个游玩的小镇。逃离城 市生活,在澳大利亚最凉爽、最闲适的海滨小镇优雅地回归自然。

A

rriving in Byron Bay is always a relief. If you’ve travelled from the south, you're greeted by a coastal metropolis after hours of staring at nothing but cane fields. If arriving from the north, you've gradually de-urbanised from the glitz of the Gold Coast into a sleepy beach town hugged by the lush hinterland. Either way, Byron Bay is a sight for sore eyes no matter what you’re used to. An easy hour’s drive from the Gold Coast or a quick flight to Ballina Byron Gateway Airport from Sydney lands you in Byron Bay, a favourite escape for Aussies on both sides of the NSW-Queensland border. It’s no longer the country town many remember from the 90s, home to surf bums and farmers – and that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Its popularity with a new breed of traveller as a coastal escape has given rise to a new breed of town – one where a diverse offering of restaurants, accommodation and shopping has merged with its original small-town charm. >

拜伦湾,人们总是感到特别 的舒心。如果从南方来,在 放眼望去只有甘蔗地的几 小时旅程之后,您会感受到 沿海城市的热情。如果从北方来,您将渐 渐远离黄金海岸(Gold Coast)的浮华, 投入这个被繁茂腹地环绕的静寂小镇的 怀抱。无论来自何方,也无论习惯了哪种 生活方式,拜伦湾总能给人带来欣喜。 从黄金海岸驱车1小时或从悉尼搭乘飞 机前往巴利纳拜伦机场(Ballina Byron Airport)很快即可抵达拜伦湾。拜伦湾坐落 于昆士兰州和新南威尔士州的交界处,是最 受澳大利亚人喜爱的度假胜地。这里已经不 再是许多人印象当中90年代冲浪一族和农 民聚集的乡村小镇。作为一个海滨度假胜地, 这里颇受新一代旅游者的欢迎,这也使得拜 伦湾这座小镇有了新的变化。在这里,多样

化的餐饮、住宿和购物体验与原始小镇的无 穷魅力相融甚洽。

游玩 该地区的自然美景再怎么形容也不为过。站 在拜伦湾最东端的岬角,在您的面前蔓延开 来的是一片片的海滩,而郁郁葱葱的农田和 果园则与北方薄雾弥漫的山脉和丛林连成一 片。当您看到这些景色时就会知道,对于整个 地区而言,拜伦湾这个小镇只是冰山一角。 沿着拜伦 湾的海岸线 遍布着 众多幽 静 的 海湾、热门 的冲浪 地 点和 美 丽 的 海 滩,但您的第一站很可能是主海滩(Main Beach)以及不容错过的拜伦湾灯塔。在 拜伦角上,一座标志性的灯塔眺望着远处 的海洋,这是来到这座小镇的任何一位游 客的必看景点。不要看到主海滩上玩耍嬉 戏的孩子们和晒日光浴的人,就把这里 >

EXPLORE

It’s hard to overstate the natural beauty of the region. Standing atop the easternmost headland of Byron, a tapestry of beaches is spread in front of you while lush farmland and fruit plantations meet a range of misty mountains and bushland to the north. When first taking all this in, you’ll know that the township itself is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to exploring the area. Scores of secluded bays, surfing hot spots and beautiful beaches line the coast around Byron Bay, but your first stop is likely to be the main beaches as well as the unmissable Byron Bay Lighthouse. Looking out over the ocean atop Cape Byron Bay is the iconic lighthouse, a must-see for any first-timer in town. Down below on Main Beach, don’t take the kids playing and sunbathers as a sign that it’s another boring tourist spot – it’s also one of the best surfing beaches on the coast thanks to its surf break. Further up is Belongil Beach, made famous by the impossible-to-miss wreck of the SS Wollongbar, which sank in a cyclone nearly 100 years ago. If you can fight off the surfers, the wreck is also home to a rich underwater ecosystem, making it popular with scuba divers. When it comes to hiking and exploring the surrounding national parks, you’ll have to ask yourself how far out you’d like to travel to see it all. If you’re not looking to venture far from creature comforts but still want to take in the views, the always-popular Cape Byron Walking track is your best bet. This simple loop hits the lighthouse, takes in the ocean views from the headland, and visits popular picnic spots. Meanwhile, just south of town is the Arakwal National Park, where you’ll find some much-needed seclusion and tranquility at Tallow Beach, an almost endless stretch of coast uninterrupted by the hotels and cafes for which Byron is known.

Byron isn’t all about beaches and the outdoors. It’s also home to some ambitious new restaurants, cafes and bars. The main strip is all well and good for the more touristy offerings of big breakfasts and gelato, but if you pull back the curtain, you’ll find some gems worth seeking out. One thing the many cool cafes in Byron get right is the Byron vibe. Bayleaf Cafe is always buzzing with locals and travellers thanks to its easy coastal style. Exposed wooden beams prop up the high ceilings, the concrete washed brick walls create a grungy atmosphere and all the salty-haired guys working here look like they’ve just come in from a surf.

SLEEP

No matter how much exploring and eating you think you can fit in, you’ll always need a place to rest your head. Fortunately, there’s no accommodation shortage in Byron Bay. There was a time when all you could find in Byron was a few caravan parks and motel rooms, but those days are long gone. While you’ll still find a treasure trove of backpackers hostels and camp sites in town, it’s the new breed of resorts that should be catching your eye. Ranging from suites right on the water to private cabins in the hinterland, it’s not hard to find something to suit your style. The Byron at Byron is your laid-back offering where you can rejuvenate and get back to nature amongst 50 acres of subtropical rainforest. However, for the complete Byron Bay coastal experience, it’s hard to go past Elements of Byron Resort and Spa. This 5-star resort stretching across 50 acres and two kilometres of absolute beach frontage is the very definition of luxury Australiana. Its uninterrupted views of Belongil Beach can only be matched by the 13 acres of rainforest complete with lakes, ponds and 19 rare species roaming the grounds. This might be a resort in one of Australia’s most popular beach towns, but as soon as you arrive, you’ll be transported to your very own secluded rainforest. “You feel like you have a real engagement with the natural landscape,” says Jeremy Holmes, development director at Elements of Byron. “The only two sounds you’ll hear at Elements are the > ocean and the wildlife.” 62

住宿 无论您能 玩多少、吃多少, 总得需要一个休息的地方。 幸运的是,拜伦湾也不乏住 宿选择。曾几何时,拜伦湾 只有寥寥几家大篷车旅店和 汽车旅馆,但是那些日子已 经一去不复返。虽然镇上仍 然有一些背包客旅社和露营 地,但能够吸引您的眼球的 应该是这里的新型度假村。 从水上套房到内陆私人小屋, 不难找到适合您的风格。 Byron at Byron有着悠 闲 的 氛 围,您 可以在 这 里 50英亩的亚热带雨林中恢 复活力,回归自然。然而,一 次完整的拜伦湾海岸体 验 绝对不能少了Elements of Byron Resort and Spa。这 座5星 级 度假村面 积 达5 0 英亩,绵延于长达2公里的 海滩上,很好的体现了澳大 利亚 的 奢 华 。比 朗吉海 滩 的景色一览无余,也只有这 里13英亩的雨林以及其中 的湖泊、池塘和19种罕见物 种才能配得上这绝美的景 色。这里可能是澳大利亚最 受欢迎的海滨小镇之一,但

是 抵 达 这 里 后,您 就 会被 带到属于自己的僻 静雨林 之中。Elements of Byron 开发 总 监 杰 里 米·福 尔摩 斯(Jeremy Holmes)表 示:“您会觉得自己和这里 的自然景观真的有个约定。 在Elements,您听到的只有 大海和野生动物的声音。” 这座度假村秉承尊重自 然和地区精华的理念,却能 提供五星级的舒 适住宿体 验。杰里米说:“我们这里 有着纯粹的奢华体验。我们 努力让客人真正地体验拜伦 湾,同时提供一系列的服务, 让您更 加深入地了解拜伦

湾。”Elements of Byron不 断力求完美。Elements of Byron于2016年2月刚刚开 业,荣获英国室内设计师协 会(Association of British Interior Designers)国际 设 计大奖的最 佳酒店设 计 奖。今年,在原来令人印象 深刻的各色服务基础之上, 这座度假村将为宾客带来更 多的住宿、餐饮、养生体验。 Elements of Byron就 像一 个自给自足的豪华 村 庄,让您不由自主地想要体 验其中的一切。这里有5种 不同的用餐体验,即可以围 着火坑 享用从 复古大 篷 >

The ethos behind the resort is to honour nature and the essence of the region while still offering all the comforts of 5-star accommodation. “We are barefoot luxury,” Holmes says. “We try and give our guests an authentic Byron experience and having a train service that allows you to jump into the heart of Byron keeps us attached to town as well.” Having only opened in February 2016 and being awarded Best Hotel Design from the Association of British Interior Designers International Design Awards, the resort is already relaunching this year with even more accommodation, dining and wellness experiences to add to their already impressive collection. Elements of Byron is like a self-contained luxury village where you’ll be hard-pressed just to get through everything on offer. Five dining experiences – ranging from a retro caravan serving native-produce-inspired cocktails and local beers around a fire pit, to executive chef Simon Jones’ exquisite Italian seafood experience – mean you can eat and drink your way. There are accommodation options for most budgets and even more continually being developed. However, for a real taste of luxury, you can’t go past the new two-bedroom villa beachhouse, complete with timber decks, fireplaces and verandah bathhouses surrounded by forest. If you ever get sick of relaxing in your room, you’ll never run out of on-site activities.

ID LOUNGE BAR

Shanghai may be China’s cocktail capital with its world-renowned bars and bartenders, but Chongqing has its own emerging drinks scene – and ID Lounge Bar in Jiangbei is one of the leading lights. “I’d describe my bar as an Asian speakeasy,” says Jerry Zhou, a former investment banker who arrived in Chongqing via Taipei and South Miami. On a late Saturday evening, ID (which stands for Innovation and Development) has a clubby vibe with groups of young locals playing drinking games with dice on large, dark leather couches. Entry is reservation only, and in true speakeasy style, ID Lounge Bar takes some finding with its off-street location down a corridor of shopfronts. The bar boasts a wide selection of whiskies, heavily skewed towards single malt with several bottles of Kavalan from Taiwan’s esteemed Kavalan distillery. One of the jewels of Zhou’s collection is a bottle of Kavalan Solist Vinho Barrique, which won World’s Best Single Malt at the 2015 World Whiskies Award. Its smoothness belies its strength with rich caramel flavours. Each dram will set you back RMB 250 (approx $50). The bar’s head bartender is Fanny He, a recent winner at China’s Cointreau Queens cocktail competition. Her winning drink is Elegance, which is served on a wood block with a cascade of dry ice. Strong and Cognac-driven, but balanced, with a light bitterness and hint of cinnamon, He describes her creation as, “a drink for an elegant, confident gentleman.” In addition to its selection of premium spirits and finely crafted cocktails, ID Lounge Bar also offers a wide selection of Cuban cigars. 72

凯恩斯(Cairns)是个度假的天堂,可以满足日光 浴爱好者的各种需求。然而,凯恩斯无以伦比的魅 力还在于它的地理位置,这里离大堡礁和昆士兰 湿热带地区雨林(Wet Tropics Rainforest)都非 常近,萨拉·尼科尔森(Sarah Nicholson)写道。 Cairns is a holiday haven, boasting everything sun seekers need to live it up or wind down – but it’s the settlement’s position beside the Great Barrier Reef and Wet Tropics Rainforest that’s the real attraction, writes Sarah Nicholson.

T

here’s a spot on the Queensland coast, just a stone’s throw from cosmopolitan Cairns, where rainforest meets reef. But this is no average jungle or ordinary coral crop. On the contrary: we’re talking about the neighbouring UNESCO World Heritage sites of the Wet Tropics Rainforest and Great Barrier Reef. And the place these intricate ecosystems rendezvous is a rugged landmark called Cape Tribulation. At this remote headland, a lush green blankets the mountains flanking the coast. There’s a strip of white sand that’s typically void of footprints. And the whimsical blues of the Coral Sea ascend through azure and sapphire to a deep cobalt above the sprawling coral gardens. Cairns may be famous for its foodie scene, shopping streets and beachside hotels, but the real appeal of this northern settlement is the fact it serves as gateway to the rainforest and the reef.

GREEN ISLAND Folks set on spending a few hours or a few days on a plot of South Pacific sand can slide Green Island into their Queensland fantasy. The tropical atoll, a 45-minute dash from Cairns by catamaran, promises empty white beaches and colourful beds of coral just a few metres from shore. Green Island is a peaceful cay in the heart of the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, a protected stretch of the Coral Sea reaching from Cape York to the northern tip of Fraser Island. Dense tropical rainforest carpets the land, and warm blue water laps at the shore. Those visiting for the day can claim a patch of sand on a vacant beach, wade into the water with snorkel and goggles to meet the colourful fish that live in the coral, board a glass-bottom boat to explore a little further from land, or hire a kayak to circumnavigate the 15-hectare island. Travellers looking to linger can stay at Green Island Resort with the breezy “Reef Suites” – those in the know say these rooms are perfect for honeymooners or guests simply seeking a special stopover – tucked under the treetops. Each features a balcony that’s the perfect roost to appreciate the 55 bird species that flit around the foliage. 对于打算花费几小时或几天来享受南太平洋沙滩的游客 而言,他们不妨从绿岛出发前往昆士兰观赏热带环礁,从 凯恩斯坐游艇只需45分钟即可抵达,海岸不远处就是空 无一人的白色海滩和色彩斑斓的珊瑚礁。 珊瑚海从约克角(Cape York)一直延伸至弗雷泽岛 (Fraser Island)北端,位于大堡礁海洋公园(G reat Barrier Reef Marine Park)中心的绿岛是一座安静宁和 的珊瑚礁岛屿,也是“守卫”珊瑚海的一块突出的阵地。 热带雨林覆盖了这座小岛,到处绿树成荫,海水碧绿如 洗,像翡翠般通透,不断拍打着海岸。 白天观光的游客既可以漫步海滩,留下属于自己的痕 迹,也可以戴上呼吸管和游泳镜潜入水中,探寻在珊瑚中 居住的五颜六色的鱼类,还可以登上玻璃船底的航船前 往远离陆地的地方探险,或者租一艘单人小艇,环游这座 15公顷的小岛一周。 那些想在周围逛逛的游客可以在Green Land Resort 度假酒店开一间能够享受海风的“珊瑚套间”——熟悉这 类套间的人说,珊瑚套间是度蜜月的新婚夫妇或打算短暂 停留的游客的绝佳选择。这些房间位于树顶之中,从阳台 上可以观赏到55种不同鸟类在树丛中欢快地飞来飞去。

“THE REEF IS ONE OF THE SEVEN WONDERS OF THE WORLD AND THE ONLY LIVING THING THAT CAN BE SPOTTED FROM SPACE” GREAT BARRIER REEF Queensland’s Great Barrier Reef is the planet’s largest coral system, including 3,000 separate coral cays and hundreds of sun-soaked islands. The landmark is one of the seven wonders of the natural world and the only living thing that can be spotted from space. The best way to appreciate the icon is by joining a day trip that ventures far from the coast to snorkel above the intricate underwater gardens and myriad marine creatures, from baby clownfish to octogenarian turtles. Silver Series’ vessel Silverswift makes daily expeditions from Cairns to the Outer Reef. Silverswift spends at least five hours anchored on the deep blue – locations are selected according to wildlife and weather. Flynn, Pellowe, Milln and Thetford reefs all offer memorable underwater encounters, and guests can enjoy unlimited snorkelling or join guided dives if scuba-qualified. For those who prefer to explore under sail, Ocean Spirit Cruises has been navigating the Great Barrier Reef for more than 25 years and now escapes to secluded Michaelmas Cay. Those aboard can explore a serene location that’s also a haven for bird lovers from under, on and above the waves. > 昆士兰大堡礁是全球最大的珊瑚礁群,拥有3,000种不同 的珊瑚小礁和上百个阳光灿烂的小岛。大堡礁是世界七大 奇迹之一,也是在太空中唯一能够看到的活的生物结构。 观赏大堡礁的最佳方法就是参加一日游,从远离海岸 的地方出发,配备呼吸管的游客能够近距离观察复杂多 样的水下花园和包括小丑鱼和万年乌龟在内的大量海洋 生物。Silver Series的Silverswift号每天都会在凯恩斯和 外堡礁(Outer Reef)之间往返,为游客开启探险之旅。 Silverswift号在海中下锚后会停留至少5个小时,根据 野生动植物和天气状况,下锚的地点会在弗林礁(Flynn) 、百乐礁(Pe l l owe)、米 伦礁(M i l l n)和赛 特福德礁 (Thetford)中选择,为游客提供令人难忘的水下体验。 如果水中呼吸器允许的话,游客还可以在下锚期间进行自 由浮潜或在导游的引导下潜水等活动。 对于热衷扬帆探险的游客来说,Ocean Spirit Cruises 绝 对是 最 佳 选 择。Oc e a n S p i r i t C r u i s e s已在 大 堡 礁上航行了25个年头,现在开始前往隐蔽的米迦勒礁 (Michaelmas Cay)。船上的游客不仅可以探索这片宁 > 静之地,鸟类爱好者也可以在这里大饱眼福。 77

“LOCALS RECOMMEND EARLY MORNING AS THE BEST TIME TO CATCH A GLIMPSE OF A CASSOWARY” THE CASSOWARY COAST The coastline meandering away from Mission Beach is not only the closest point between mainland and Great Barrier Reef, but it’s also the location to see one of the state’s most unusual residents and the creature that gives its name to the region. The cassowary is a flightless bird, and at 60kg and standing two metres tall, it’s the world’s third largest bird. While there are only 4,000 remaining in the wild, a few destinations around Mission Beach grant patient twitchers an opportunity to spot a creature that wears peacock-like colours on its slender neck. Stroll the Dreaming Trail, settle in a shady spot at Gardner’s Beach, or break the two-hour drive from Cairns to Mission Beach at Etty Bay to observe one of these shy and well-camouflaged critters. Locals recommend early morning as the best time and waterholes the best place to catch a glimpse of a cassowary. But don’t dash through Mission Beach once birdwatching has been scratched from the travel to-do list. The laidback hamlet, which is the gateway to the Family Group of Islands that wait just a few kilometres from the coast, is famous for its friendly locals who readily share secret swimming spots and the best places to sample local produce. 沿密逊海滩(Mission Beach)蜿蜒曲折的海岸线不仅 是澳大利亚大陆和大堡礁之间最近的地点,还是观赏食 火鸡的理想场所——食火鸡海岸(Cassowary Coast) 正是得名于该地这种与众不同的生物。 食火鸡不能飞,体重可达60公斤,身高可达2米,是世 界第三大的鸟类,细长的脖子有着与孔雀相似的颜色。野 生食火鸡在全球仅有4,000余只,但密逊海滩周围的几处 地点还是能让有耐心的狂热观鸟爱好者有机会看到这种 稀有的鸟类。 无论是在梦幻小道(Dreaming Trail)上漫步,还是 在加德纳海滩(Gardner’s Beach)的树荫下暂息, 抑或在从凯恩斯到密逊海滩两小时的车程中在埃蒂海湾 (Etty Bay)停留片刻,都有机会看到这种害羞和善于伪 装的食火鸡。根据当地人的建议,如果要一睹食火鸡的 真面目,最佳时间是清晨,最佳地点则是水洼。 已经在密逊海滩轻松闲适的小村庄氛围中看完食火 鸡 的游 客也急于离开 这 里。离海岸几公里的地方就是 Family Group of Islands群岛,密逊海滩是通往那里的 必经之处。Family Group of Islands群岛的当地人以热 情好客闻名,他们乐于与游客分享秘密的游泳场所和品 尝当地美食的最佳地点。

DAINTREE RAINFOREST Tropical North Queensland’s Daintree Rainforest could serve as the set for the next Jurassic Park movie. This wild and pristine wilderness, which covers 1,200 square kilometres between Mossman Gorge and Bloomfield River north of Cairns, is at least 180 million years old – making it senior to the Amazon. Exploring the Daintree is about becoming immersed in the outdoors. You can go solo – follow a track through the rainforest, cool down in a clear mountain stream, pedal a mountain track and spy turtles and butterflies beside a remote river. Or you can join a guide from Jungle Surfing Canopy Tours on a zipline adventure or after-dark nature walk. The Kuku Yalanji people have occupied this land for millennia. Explore with an Indigenous host who will highlight rainforest history, aboriginal culture, traditional medicine, and bush tucker. While it’s possible to do the Daintree in a day, those looking to savour the serenity should stay a while. Silky Oaks Lodge, a member of the Luxury Lodges of Australia, is the perfect place to make a base on the fern-covered slopes climbing from the Mossman River. The refined eco-lodge, a 70-minute drive from Cairns or 20 minutes by helicopter, boasts a day spa that celebrates the rainforest in treatments and treehouse suites that deliver barefoot luxury by perching guests high in the canopy while in residence. 热带北昆士兰(Tropical North Queensland)的黛 恩树雨林(Daintree Rainforest)呈现出一片原始的野 生景象,完全是下一部《侏罗纪公园》电影的天然采景 地。这片热带雨林占地1,2 0 0 平方公里,位于莫 斯曼峡 谷(Mossman Gorge)和凯恩斯北部布卢姆菲尔德河 (Bloomfield River)之间,拥有1亿8千万年的历史,甚 至比亚马逊河还要古老。 黛恩树雨林的探索过程就是独自沉浸于大自然的一 次经历。循着雨林中的小道前行,在山林 小溪间小憩片 刻,踏上山间小路前往高处,观察偏僻之处河流旁的乌龟 和蝴蝶。与此同时,还可以加入飞越丛林之旅(Jungle Surfing Canopy Tours),在导游带领下体验蜿蜒曲折 的雨林旅行或天黑后的漫步大自然活动。 游客还可以邀请已在当地生活上千年的库库亚兰吉人 (Kuku Yalanji)担任向导,无论是丛林历史和土著文化,还 是传统医药和丛林食物,库库亚兰吉人皆会为您娓娓道来。 游览后可以在属于澳大利亚奢华酒店联盟(Luxu r y Lodges of Australia)一员的Silky Oaks Lodge中享受 一份宁静平和,是游客停留住宿的绝佳地点。 典雅的生态旅馆拥有日间水疗馆,让人仿若置身雨林 之中,而树屋套间则能让游客栖息于高高的树冠之上,获 得回归自然的奢华体验。从凯恩斯到这间旅馆驾车需要 70分钟,搭乘直升飞机则只需20分钟。

A

farmer squeezes his donkey’s mouth open to show the condition of his teeth. He then runs his hands over his bristling mane and proudly stands beside his beast. Three or four other doppa-capped men are mentally gauging the quality of the donkey when suddenly one shakes hands with the farmer, and a deal is struck. The donkey has a new owner. Nearby, goats line up head to tail like sardines in a tin; sheep stand patiently in pens and dozens of woolly-coated yaks await their fate. Elsewhere, crafty butchers make swift work of converting sheep on the hoof into tasty samsa – mutton-filled pastry snack favoured by the local Uighur Muslim community – using a simple on-the-spot process of butchering, chopping, pastry-wrapping and then baking them in an open-air tandoor-style oven ready for puckish market-goers. The Sunday livestock bazaar in Kashgar has been a lively feature of this oasis outpost in far north-west China for thousands of years. It encapsulates the little-changed lifestyle of these far-flung oases communities that have made this harsh region their home for millennia. Strategically located on the ancient Silk Road close to the border with Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan and the Pamir Mountains, Kashgar has always been an important trading town in Central Asia. Despite recent rapid development where traditional mud-brick adobe houses are making way for new apartment blocks and multi-storey international hotels are opening up to cater for the increased number of tourists, it still retains its rural charm. I am on the inaugural Abercrombie & Kent 10-day small group journey, the Ancient Silk Road in the remote Chinese provinces of Gansu and Xinjiang, travelling from Dunhuang to Kashgar via Turpan and the provincial capital, Urumqi. All are thriving oases towns and exist purely because they were on the original 9,600km-long trading route from Xi’an in eastern China to Istanbul on the Mediterranean. Mostly untouched by the West, the people here have little in common with the traditional Chinese of the East. The most noticeable difference is in the people themselves. Nine million of the 20 million inhabitants of Xinjiang province are Uighur Muslims whose features are more Persian, Turkic or Mongolian. They have their own Uighur language, which uses the Arabic alphabet, but to the untrained ear sounds more Turkish or Russian. And their cuisine uses flavours and ingredients associated more with the Mediterranean – pomegranate, dates, almonds and figs making regular appearances. Following such a historic route, it pays to have some background knowledge. According to our local guide, Palida Maimaiti – herself a Uighur Muslim – the Silk Road was originally opened in 138BC when Zhang Qian, a Chinese diplomatic envoy, was sent to the > country’s western region to make an alliance of petty kingdoms

with Imperial China. “These small kingdoms had always been threatened by the huge nomadic tribes in the area, called Xiongnu – also known as the Hun,” she explains. Over the centuries, monks, missionaries, armies, artists, poets as well as businessmen travelled this network of roads. Mongolian warrior-ruler Genghis Khan occupied the whole region in the 12th century and later. Venetian explorer Marco Polo travelled along the Silk Road in the 13th century. Considering this was the main conduit along which everything travelled or was communicated, I like to think of the original Silk Road as the precursor or a primitive version of the World Wide Web. For it was not just commodities such as spices, precious stones and indeed, silk, that traversed these roads, but also information, innovation, ideas, art, religion and even disease – the Black Death in the 14th century accounted for some 25 million deaths, wiping out between 30 and 60 per cent of Europe’s total population. The Silk Road was shut in the 15th century during the Ming Dynasty when Emperor Yongle closed the doors to all countries, Palida says. “The trade route was deserted, unused and almost forgotten, so the sea Silk Road started – with shipping via South China and southern Asian across the Indian Ocean,” she adds. The modern-day Silk Road was named by Baron Ferdinand von Richthofen in 1877 and re-opened in the early 19th century – “not for trade, but for exploration.” Locals are perhaps rightly dark with adventurers such as Brit Auriel Stein, Frenchman Paul Pelliot, German Albert von Le Coq and Swede Sven Hedin, among others, who drew maps of the old trade routes and helped themselves to many of the artifacts, manuscripts and scrolls. American Landen Warner even concocted a special glue to lift beautiful frescoes off cave walls without damaging them. But it was through their exploits that the Silk Road became known to the rest of the world. “They made it an even more intoxicating real-life adventure destination,” Palida says. Which is how our small group of just seven Australians – including A&K’s Managing Director, Sujata Raman, as a special host – come to find ourselves among just a handful of other fellow travellers in this relatively unknown autonomous region of China. Following a three-and-a-quarter-hour flight from Beijing, some 2,000km due east, our first stop is the oasis town of Dunhuang. It’s ringed to the north by Mongolia, to the east by the 600-metre-high Mingsha sand dunes that are an extension of the vast Gobi Desert, to the south-east by the snow mountain Qilian that provides the region’s vital water supply with snow melt, while 500km to the west is the forbidding Taklamakan Desert – the second largest desert in the world and known as the ‘ghost’ desert, “because anyone going in, doesn’t come out.” Dunhuang has always been an important stop on the celebrated Silk Road and today’s attractions naturally include sites that were of major importance hundreds of years ago. These include the Mogao Caves, with more than 700 caves filled with painted statues and vibrant frescoes – considered one of the greatest archeological discoveries of the 20th century and the best-preserved repository of Buddhist art in the world. There’s also the little-known 11th century Buddhist Yulin Caves, whose cliff-face location above a dry river gully with shimmering poplars, resembles that of an Indiana Jones movie. >

曾在13世纪重走了丝绸之路。 鉴于古代丝绸之路是东西方贸易和文化交 往的主要通道,我想可以把它看作是万维网 的初始或原始形态。这条通道运输的不仅仅 是各种香料、奇珍异石或是中国丝绸等商品, 它还传递了信息、创意、思想、艺术和宗教, 甚至于疾病——爆发于14世纪的黑死病夺走 了2,500万人的生命,欧洲因此丧失了30%至 60%的人口。 明朝永乐皇帝在15世纪下令封锁丝绸之 路,进而关闭了通往世界的大门。帕丽达说 道: “不久这条贸易之路就被遗弃和闲置了, 几乎让人遗忘,海上丝绸之路转而兴起—— 一艘艘船只从中国东南沿海出发,经过亚洲 南部各国,然后横跨印度洋。” 现代的丝绸之路由费迪南·冯·李希霍芬 (Ferdinand von Richthofen)男爵在1877 年命名,并在19世纪初期重新开放。 “但它的 开放并非为了贸易,而是为了探险。”当地人时 至今日或许仍不知晓当时的探险家们是何许 人也,其中包括英国人奥利尔·斯坦因(Auriel Stein)、法国人保罗·伯希和(Paul Pelliot) 、德国人阿尔伯特·冯·勒克科(Albert von Le Coq)和瑞典人 斯 文·赫 定( S v e n Hedin)。他们绘制 了古代 丝 绸 之 路 的 地图,窃取了大量珍 贵 的 文 物 器皿 和 手 稿 卷 轴 。美 国 人 兰 登·华尔纳(Landon Warner)甚至调制 了一种特殊的胶水, 能够将洞穴中的壁画 完好无损地取走。但 是,正是他们对丝绸 之路的掠夺使得丝绸 之路被世界上的其他 国家所了解。帕丽达 说:“这让丝绸之路 成为了现实生活中更 为令人兴奋的探险目 的地。” 包括特别导游——Abercrombie & Kent 旅游公司常务董事苏耶妲·拉曼(Sujata Raman)在内,我们一行七人(均来自澳大利 亚)来到中国这个相对陌生的自治区,我们发 现这里的其他游客也寥寥无几。 从北京坐了3个小时15分钟的飞机后,我们 抵达了第一站——敦煌市,这是一座位于北京 以西2,000公里的绿洲城市。敦煌市北面是蒙 古;东面是600米高的鸣沙山,其为蒙古广袤 的戈壁沙漠的延伸;东南是祁连雪山,融化的 雪水构成当地重要的水源;西边500公里则是 令人生畏的塔克拉玛干沙漠。塔克拉玛干沙 漠是世界第二大沙漠,又称“幽灵沙漠”,因 为到这里的人往往“有去无回”。 自古以来,敦煌就是这条举世闻名的丝绸 之路上极为重要的一站。几百年前留下的历史 遗迹时至今日自然成为令人神往的旅游胜地, 其中包括拥有700多个洞窟的莫高窟,进去 >

Five years ago, the Mogao Caves visitors’ centre opened with a US$6 million donation from the Gates Foundation. Now with some 1.7 million visitors annually, daily visitations have been capped at 6,000. A fun highlight is a ride into the towering Mingsha sand dunes on the backs of two-humped Bactrian camels – “the heroes of the desert,” whom we learn can go for 15 days without water or food, the two humps retaining internal moisture. We later munch on local dried green-and-black sultanas, pistachios and apricot kernels as the sun sets over the dunes. It’s a two-hour drive to the new railway station at Liuyuan where we board the high-speed train for our onward journey to Turpan in Xinjiang province. Occupying 166 square kilometres, it’s the largest Chinese province and accounts for one-sixth of the republic’s total land mass. En route, we pass battalions of wind farms whose spindly arms spin in all directions on the endless Gobi Desert. Around the desolate townships of Hami and further on Tuha, we see acres of solar panels, then hundreds of oil derricks see-sawing on the otherwise stony, featureless desert. In Turpan, we dine under a trellis of grapevines at the home of a private family where the local community has come together to entertain us. As we arrive, musicians play classical music on traditional Uighur instruments such as the rawap – a long-necked stringed instrument; dap – a hand dru; and ghijek – a violin-like instrument. Inside, the dining table is laden with bowls of assorted breads, including the curiously curly, crispy sangza, sweet cakes, biscuits and fruit. It’s all there for nibbling on, but is soon removed to make way for dinner dishes such as thin-skin dumplings, a traditional rice pilaf, and goshnan – a large, flat, deep-fried pastry stuffed with mutton, onions and pepper; and lahman – a local staple of pulled noodles with chilli and green beans. Local dancers and singers entertain us with gusto and colourful costumes. As is the A&K way, few dishes throughout the journey are repeated and we’re fortunate enough to sample a wide range of dishes and flavours. Traditional Uighur restaurants are highly decorated with myriad deckled archways, ornate velvet or brocade-furnished chairs and waiters in embroidered shirts wearing the signature doppa caps. We visit markets and mosques, mausoleums and museums, and discover each oasis town is known for a particular fruit: Kucha for sweet white apricots, Hami for delicious honey melons, Turpan for plump grapes and Kashgar for pomegranate and luscious figs. On our flight home from Kashgar, passengers tote boxes of local fruit like souvenirs – to share a little taste of this incredible region when they get home. Pomegranate juice or date tea, anyone?

ew South Wales’ South Coast is like a small country town spread out across 300km. Unlike other regions famous for their food and wine, the South Coast hasn’t championed one single town; instead, growers, winemakers and chefs have set up shop in every pocket of this coastal road trip. The beauty of this region is in its diversity. Dozens of oyster farmers have set up camp along the coast. Rivers and estuaries and unknown to most. The Southern Tablelands and rich pockets of volcanic soil have also given rise to a number of small wineries. And if the oysters and wine of the region aren’t enough to keep you interested, the endless rolling farmland, unspoilt beaches and lush national parks should offer up enough local produce and possibilities for exploration to extend your road trip another few days. > 新南威尔士州僻静的南部 海岸(South Coast)蜿蜒 300公里,乡村小镇星罗棋 布。与凭借美食 和美酒而 闻名的其它地区不同,南部 海岸的生 蚝养殖场、葡萄 酒酒庄和餐厅没有集中在 某一个城镇,在您沿着海 岸的公路旅行中随处可见。 这一地区的最大魅力在 于它的多样性。沿着海岸、 河流与河口有着数十个生 蚝养殖场,而鲜为人 知 的 是,南部高原(Southern Tablelands)肥沃的火山

Once you are a few hundred kilometres out of Sydney, you’ll find the pace is noticeably slower. You’ll be lucky to spot a handful of people on most beaches, and each native forest has little more than a single coastal road to blemish it.

GEM HUNTING

The first thing you’ll notice while travelling along the coast is that there are no obvious stops. Every town is hiding its own gems either out in the open, down by the water or out in the hills. When we think of Australian wine, the South Coast probably isn’t at the front of anyone’s mind, which is what makes discovering the wine of this little-known region so exciting. Just outside the popular weekender town of Berry, you’ll find Silos Estate, one of the first wineries you’re likely to stumble upon on your trip. With buildings dating back to 1870 and decades-old vines strewn across the property, Silos is a particularly quaint stop. Alpacas roam the farm and a winery dog named Carla well past her prime sleeps in the corner of the cellar door. Owner Rajarshi Ray makes a point of chatting to every visitor offering his story, a plate of local cheeses and a sample of their sparkling shiraz, riesling and the uncommon-to-the-area sauvignon blanc. “We try and do a bit of everything here. Silos is just as much a weekend destination as it is a simple winery and we want people

property is overflowing with passion, family values and new ventures. And it has paid off, making Cupitt’s a highlight of the South Coast.

LET’S EAT

The wineries in the region may be few and far between, but you’ll never be pushed tracking down dining options, especially seafood. With so much untouched land and the Clyde River running the length of the coast, oysters and seafood don’t get much fresher. Wharf Road will be one of the first must-stop restaurants on your trip. Hidden beneath the iconic Nowra Bridge with views of the Nowra River, this relaxed restaurant makes for a perfect lunch or afternoon break. Dishes like the smoked bass groper, crispy pork belly or the beer battered monkfish are some of the highlights, but you could just as easily kick back on the balcony with a local beer or wine and a plate of Greenwell Point or Clyde River oysters plucked straight from the water. As you head further south you’ll start hitting some of the more well-known holiday towns like Mollymook and Ulladulla. While still small, these towns have no shortage of places to eat. Mollymook, best known for its premier accommodation Bannisters by the Sea on Bannisters Point, is home to the highly acclaimed seafood restaurant Rick Stein at Bannisters. Here the seafood is the hero of every dish. Oysters from up and down the coast are a must to start, followed by any of the fresh dishes like the barramundi meurette or whole snapper with orange, capers and chilli. Of course, you could spend every night sampling everything Rick Stein has on offer, but that would be ignoring the small but unmissable Tallwood in Mollymook. Often overshadowed by the behemoth that is Rick Stein, Tallwood focus on keeping all their ingredients local as well as featuring Cupitt’s beer on tap, (it’s a rarity for the microbrewery to be seen outside its own estate). The menu is broken up into seafood, vegetarian and meat, with Aussie favourites like the Black Angus in pawpaw and coconut and a changing vegetarian menu based on the season. All of Tallwood’s oysters come straight from the Clyde River and have been dressed up with unique flavours like sour plum and spiced sambal. Oysters are common to every restaurant along the coast. There’s a reason this region is famous for its oysters and why most of Australia is supplied by its farms. The growers of Australia’s Oyster Coast produce three main oyster species for local restaurants, Australian restaurants and across Asia: the Sydney rock oyster, the Angasi oyster, and the Pacific oyster. With over 100 environmentally conscious growers scattered along the coast and its adjoining rivers, these slow-growing delicacies grown in the estuaries are among the most environmentally sustainable in the world, a point of pride for the growers of the region. While many varieties make it into most restaurants, the local specialty is the Sydney rock oyster, one of the few indigenous oysters still being farmed anywhere in the world and loved for its intense and tangy flavour. > 96

With so many farm gates operating, a tour to some of the favourites is a must, and you can’t get much fresher than straight from the farm. Some of the largest growers can come off as a little too commercial, so your best bet is to visit some of the smaller boutique family farms. Jim Wild’s Oysters at Greenwell Point has been operating since 1978 and is now managed by Jim’s daughter Sally, who has adopted the love of the trade. What makes this small farm unique is that you won’t find their oysters in any restaurants – you’ll have to travel down some dirt roads and track down their small farm gate by the water to get your hands on these award-winners. By only selling their oysters directly, Jim Wild’s has earned itself a solid reputation in the area and Jim and Sally’s passion makes the visit even more worth it. “It’s not a glamorous Sydney restaurant down here, but where else can you fish these straight from the water onto your plate? We can’t imagine doing anything else. Every day we get to explore our passion and we’ve got the freedom to try new things and perfect our oysters,” Sally says. 以为您把刚从海里捕获的 On the Clyde River you’ll find a similar family 生 蚝 端上餐桌。我们热爱 endeavour at Ralston Bros.

t may not have the star quality of Beijing or Shanghai, but the colourful coastal cities, Heritage Listed historical sites and stunning natural landscapes of Fujian make the south-east province a unique place to travel. Its capital, Fuzhou, boasts beautiful architecture, fresh-air forests and fine dining, but it’s the seaside city of Xiamen that has attracted Chinese tourists for decades, with sacred temples, natural hot springs and the hip enclave of Gulangyu Island across the water. There’s much to see away from the bustling cities, too, with the scenic Wuyi Mountains and Hakka earth houses in Yongding revealing a part of Fujian like nowhere else in China.

Set aside a full day or more to meander around the narrow streets and colonial-style buildings. Stop by the lush green grounds of Shuzhuang Garden, enjoy panoramic views from Gulangyu’s highest peak, Sunlight Rock, and check out the various museums on the island – including a piano museum that might just delight you with a free concert.

Enjoy a moment of peace as you take in the sprawling buildings and sculptures whose history reaches back to the Tang Dynasty. If you’re feeling active, take on the hill climb behind the temple – it’s steep and there are plenty of steps, but the reward is a bird’s-eye vista of the temple grounds, water below and surrounding city. Feeling hungry after your walk? The temple’s revered restaurant serves up delicious vegetarian fare. And while you’re in the area, consider a side trip to the nearby campus of Xiamen University. 515 Siming South Road, Siming District, Xiamen, nanputuo.com

t’s one of Australia’s oldest and grandest cities, a town built on multiple mining booms and surrounded by rich natural beauty, but Perth has been suffering an image problem for most of its modern life. Now, the tide is finally changing for the country’s sunniest capital. A rush of hip new openings and carefully considered developments are giving visitors and locals alike a reason to celebrate. The rebirth of Perth kicked off after travel-guide publisher Lonely Planet stung the city with a hard-to-shake tag of “Dullsville” in 2000. Local field manager-turned-tour guide Ryan Zaknich of Two Feet and a Heartbeat says the criticism stirred the sleepy frontier into action, and he watched with pride as the city slowly but surely smartened up, changing licensing laws to allow small bars in laneways, transforming public spaces and investing in culture and art. Crucially, “Instead of going to New York, London, Sydney or Melbourne, our young people are now staying to pursue creative careers,” Zaknich says. The boon for travellers? That wave of change has created an exciting city ripe for discovery. >

“COMO’s love affair with Perth is evident everywhere” Sleeping beauty

One of the biggest coups for Perth was the announcement that the renowned COMO brand had chosen the city for its first Australian property. The elegant COMO The Treasury, occupying the upper levels of the historic State Buildings in the CBD, threw open its doors in 2015 and has already been named the world’s second-best hotel by Condé Nast Traveler. With just 48 elegant suites, COMO’s restoration of the 19th century colonial building, previously home to the treasury, general post office and land titles offices, is a lesson in restraint and respect. Internationally acclaimed architect Kerry Hill directed the revamp, ensuring around 95 per cent of the building’s original structure was restored, from rooftop copper trims to dormer windows. The result is a calm city sanctuary of spacious guest rooms that rejoice in soaring ceilings, designer details and a soft, sophisticated palette. The hotel’s Perth-born general manager, Anneke Brown, says COMO was drawn not only to the property’s beauty and significance, but also the city itself. “One of the key reasons for Perth is that it’s the gateway into Australia from South East Asia. COMO really looked at that and said, well this is such a fabulous destination and it’s really a hub to explore the rest of the beautiful state of Western Australia or hop on across the country to the east,” she explains. COMO’s love affair with Perth is evident everywhere, from the artwork by Western Australian artists on the walls to the native flowers punctuating the chic suites. The layout of the rooms was also purposefully chosen to maximise views of the surrounding cityscape. “We could have definitely had 120 rooms,” Brown adds, “but this building deserved to be a high-end luxury property, and luxury is space. So where there were two offices, we’ve converted that to one room.” On the lower levels, guests can enjoy drinks in the Treasury Lounge & Bar, indulge in modern bistro classics at Post restaurant, or relax with a signature treatment in the COMO Shambhala Urban Escape spa, a deeply luxurious subterranean space.

扎克尼驰表示: “我们的年轻人无需前往 纽约、伦敦、悉尼或墨尔本这类大城市谋 求创造性的职业了,这个愿望在珀斯就可 以实现。” 这对旅游者意味着什么?改变的浪潮已 将珀斯打造成一座令人兴奋的城市,等待 游客去发现。

住宿酒店 全球知名的COMO酒店集团宣布其在澳 大利亚的首家酒店将 花落 珀 斯,这 对这 座城市而言可谓最了不起的一个成就。典 雅奢华的COMO The Treasury位于珀斯 中央商务区历史悠久的政府大楼(State Buildings)建筑群的顶部楼层,于2015年 正式营业,在Conde Nast Traveler的优 质酒店评选中名列全球第二。 这座19世纪殖民时期的建筑曾是西澳 大利亚州财政部、邮政总局及土地产权办 公室的旧址。尽管只有48个高档套间,在修 复过程中,COMO尽其所能最大程度地保 留和尊重建筑的原貌。在世界知名建筑师 卡瑞·希尔(Kerry Hill)的指导下,包括屋 顶铜板装饰和屋顶窗在内的95%的原始结

property has been “given back to the people of Perth,” Brown says. Home to a clutch of local businesses, including a florist and chocolatier, several acclaimed restaurants (more on those later) and a wine store, the building, which stood deserted for almost 20 years, is once again a vibrant city thoroughfare. While COMO has led the charge, others are hot on its game-changing heels, including the Ritz-Carlton, which will open in 2019 in the new waterfront precinct Elizabeth Quay. And in December 2016, Crown Hotels Perth extended its already substantial offering to include the grand Crown Towers, an opulent 500-room hotel overlooking the Swan River. With sweeping views of the city, an extravagant lagoon-style pool with private cabanas, plush guest rooms and one achingly chic cocktail bar, every inch of the hotel is an ode to luxury. The travertine-lined lobby is a stunning case in point – the expansive space is punctuated by a breathtaking topographical impression of Swan River by local artist Ian Dowling, made up of 6,000 > individual ceramic pieces.

While Perth’s accommodation has been busily setting new global standards, the city’s dining scene has exploded, too, led by chefs keen to play with an array of fresh and unique produce. COMO’s fine-diner, Wildflower, is the city’s drawcard, with executive chef Jed Gerrard (formerly of Tetsuya’s) at the helm. Encased in a glass box perched on the hotel rooftop, the restaurant celebrates the flavours of WA with revolving menus in tune with the six indigenous seasons. Foraged herbs, local produce such as the fresh-water crayfish marron, and delicate native flowers and fruits sing in contemporary dishes that surprise with innovative flavours and textures. You could easily spend a weekend in Perth eating in the State Buildings alone and be perfectly satisfied. Michelin-starred chef David Thompson has taken up residence on the lower ground floor with a dark and sexy Thai eatery, Long Chim. The menu here takes its cues from Thailand’s sizzling streets and is fiercely authentic (read: eye-popping levels of heat). At street level, Petition Kitchen is a relaxed city restaurant serving sophisticated share plates. Think local octopus with taramasalata or duck liver parfait with pickled rhubarb. Beyond the State Buildings, the Crown complex has three heavy hitters in Nobu, Bistro Guillaume and Rockpool Bar & Grill, while the CBD is shaking off its stuffy reputation with a flutter of funky cafes, chic bistros and hip bars. Print Hall in the historic Brookfield Place is one to watch. Once the offices of The West Australian newspaper, then a fine-diner for the corporate crowd, this impressive art deco building has recently been redesigned. The lower level is now the Gatsby-inspired osteria Gazette, serving an expertly edited Italian menu elevated with sumptuous cuts of meat cooked over charcoal. Upstairs, the chic Apple Daily is a delicious nod to Hong Kong’s famous tabloid, with a menu of moreish South East Asian share plates. >

If luxury is defined by exclusivity, Rottnest Island is surely the jewel in Perth’s crown. A 25-minute cruise from Fremantle (or a quick joy ride by seaplane), the isle is fringed with 63 white-sand oases and 20 turquoise bays, which makes it easy to find your own private slice of paradise for the day. There are no cars on the island, so bikes or a private yacht charter are the best ways to explore. While you’re there, make sure you meet and greet one of the locals – a quokka, that is. These unique marsupials are endemic to Rottnest and are delightfully friendly to human visitors. In days past, tourists would routinely bypass the city for the famous Margaret River food and wine region. But Perth has its own gourmet hub worth exploring, especially if time is tight – the Swan Valley wine region (the state’s oldest) is scattered with 150 wineries, excellent restaurants, craft breweries and micro-distilleries. Meanwhile, those seeking a dose of the unique Australian scenery with little time to venture into the Outback will love the sprawling Kings Park, with panoramic views of the river and a glorious showcase of WA’s incredible biodiversity. Dullsville? Not even close.

BEIJING

We chat to Bulgari’s Executive Vice President Silvio Ursini about opening the first Bulgari hotel in China, why Beijing was the perfect location for its launch, and what we can expect from its upcoming Shanghai sister property. 我们对宝格丽(Bulgari)执行副总裁西尔维奥·乌尔西尼 (Silvio Ursini)先生进行了采访,谈到了中国第一家宝格丽酒 店及其选址北京的原因,以及即将在上海落成的第二家酒店。 Tell us why Bulgari initially decided to start designing one-of-a-kind resorts? It all began in the early 2000s, when Bulgari wanted to further enhance its high jewellery image by exploring and mastering experiential luxury. The idea was to offer the hospitality of a jeweller, which is very personalised and warm, yet distinguished and sophisticated. We wanted to take this ethos to the next level. The luxury hotel business has become an innovative, yet legitimate, way of leveraging our brand and building up our brand awareness. We have the opportunity to offer an experience that extends beyond the store and dedicate much more attention to a wide clientele with a new and complete lifestyle experience. As a luxury brand we know how to pamper and build a true relationship with our customers. With hotels and resorts in Milan, London and Bali, why was China next on the list? Bulgari Hotels and Resorts were born to be a nest for a refined tribe of global travellers who want to feel at home while they’re away from home. When we first opened Bulgari Hotel in Milan it became, and still is, “the place to be” for the local and jet-setting crowd. When we opened London, and more recently in Bali, we provided guests with an exclusive destination that was intimate and private, while still offering all the luxury services. The same strategy is what brought us to China. Our customers are demographically different, but the one thing they have in common is that they all appreciate attention to the smallest details and all the attention we devote to ensure their comfort. Beijing is quite a large city. Why did you specifically pick out the Chaoyang 116

district for the country’s first Bulgari Hotel? Bulgari is always scouting new, prestigious and exclusive locations around the world as potential resort destinations. We’re not worried about the length of the process; what matters most is the result. We invest time to find the only place in a city that can really guarantee an extraordinary experience. This is mainly because we do not want to create just “another” luxury hotel, but rather a unique hotel in a unique location. And this is why we chose Chaoyang. It’s a real oasis in the midst of the hustle and bustle of such a vibrant city. From the windows of the hotel you can discover a hidden side to Beijing – century-old pines, fishers alongside the Liangma River and the changing seasons through nature. The ultra creative district of Sanlitun is also just a few minutes away. How does China’s fast-paced capital city resonate with the brand? Beijing is a perfect match for the profile of our hotel brand portfolio. The city has so much rich history and an increasingly cosmopolitan clientele. It’s the capital of the country and home to some of the most important landmarks and palaces of the world. We are a brand

What we ask is to express a new concept of luxury, neither ostentatious nor dramatic, but of maximum quality, authenticity with specific attention to detail. Architectural design has to be reduced, but stay powerful and rely on the use of rich materials and finishes. From the uniforms to the luggage carts, we ask for all the details to be custom designed to avoid all the overused signs of luxury hotels. Even in Beijing, the unique design concept reflects the distinctive, bold and contemporary Italian style typical of the Maison and its results are truly contemporary in many ways. What in particular will set apart Bulgari Beijing from other Bulgari Hotel locations? All the Bulgari Hotels and locations are different. All of them capture a particular aspect of the host city. In

Beijing, we focused on art and nature. The location is unique as the hotel is nestled in the Genesis Project, an oasis set along the Lingma riverside that includes two office towers, the Genesis Art Foundation and a contemporary art museum designed by Japanese architect Tadao Ando. Shanghai is set to get its own Bulgari Hotel in 2018. How will it differ from Beijing’s property? In Beijing we are in a green enclave, towering in the middle of the Genesis Project. Shanghai’s hotel will pay tribute to the city’s heritage. New and conventional architecture designed by Norman Foster will be juxtaposed with the conservative restoration and harmonisation of traditional Chinese buildings, such as the Chamber of Commerce headquarters. The Hotel is located on 27 levels between floor 4 and 32 of the building and features a magnificent penthouse on the 32nd floor where guests can enjoy the contemporary glamour of Shanghai. What is Bulgari Beijing’s most unique quality? The Bulgari Hotel Beijing features some of the city’s largest guestrooms. >

“ YOU CA N ’ T V ISIT THE HOTEL A N D NOT TRY THE HOM EM A DE TORTELLIN I”

Did the Chinese culture influence any of the resort’s design elements? Touches of Chinese tradition tastefully coexist with modern Italian design in the Bulgari Hotel in Beijing, particularly in our garden. The mind behind it was landscape architect Enzo Enea who used symbolic vegetation with both a poetic and an artistic meaning, especially the magnificent Chinese pines, which inspired the hotel logo. In China, pine trees are so culturally important that they are known as the Elders of all Trees. They usually represent resilience and longevity and we put them as “living sculptures” scattered throughout the property, acting as anchors holding the project together.

Niko’s concept in which the essence of Italian dining is synthesised. We trust his interpretation of Italian cuisine and training of new talents will allow us to guarantee a new and unique experience in our hotels. You can’t visit the hotel and not try the homemade tortellini.

How did the relationship with Italian three-Michelin-star chef Niko Romito for Il Ristorante come about? We approached Niko Romito 10 years ago, but we only recently thought about this project in a structured way. Starting from the main ingredients, to the service and the staff, everything hails from

THE CITY THAT SHINES

The adage goes that Melbourne has four seasons in a day, but when it comes to summer, the city starts to shine. And it’s not just the weather we’re talking about. Here’s our guide for how to experience Melbourne in all its glory this summer.

人们常说,在墨尔本,您可以在一天的时间里领略春夏秋冬四个季节。当夏季来 临,整个城市开始熠熠生辉,当然我们所谈论的并不仅仅是天气。以下是我们为 您推荐的旅游导览,让您尽享墨尔本在这个夏天带给您的绚烂体验。

ictoria’s capital city has long been known as a cultural hub, famous for laneway bars, live music venues and fine dining experiences designed for long winter nights and rainy days. But when the sun is out, Melbourne transforms into a different city – one that takes to the sky. It may be famous for its hot hotels and sprawling complex of restaurants, but come summer it’s the rooftop at Crown Melbourne that gets all the attention. The Summer Marquee accommodates up to 450 guests and returns this year to host the city’s socialites and celebrities for parties through the festive season. For a glamorous tipple under the sun, Siglo in Melbourne’s CBD is a study in laid-back European al fresco dining. Perched on the edge of Spring Street, the rooftop terrace sits in the shadow of the Princess Theatre, with views towards Parliament House. The aesthetic is French, with wicker chairs and white table cloths that could be straight from a Parisian brasserie, but

the cocktail list is global. Aperol spritz on a hot day is the drink of choice for many diners, along with bottles of champagne and a wine menu that comes straight from Melbourne Supper Club’s cellars. The famous Supper Club wine bar sits just downstairs from Siglo, with many patrons starting in the Club before heading upstairs to Siglo for a beverage and a cigar – Siglo’s extensive selection of Cuban cigars includes Cohiba, Upmann and Partagas. Just around the corner, on the third floor of a nondescript building, is Melbourne’s most famous rooftop. Stepping onto the rooftop at Madame Brussels is to step into an English garden party – white lawn furniture, AstroTurf and brightly coloured umbrellas are just the beginning. Locally sourced charcuterie boards, delicate tea stands filled with “sweeties”, and glasses of Pimms from the “Drinkipoos” menu are a perfect way to spend a Sunday afternoon in the sun. At Good Heavens, the Palm Springsthemed bar at the top of Bourke Street, > the cocktail list is inspired by 80s

为维多利亚州的首府,墨尔本这座城市一直以来就 被誉为文化中心,因其巷道酒吧、现场音乐表演场 地和专为漫长冬季午夜和雨天而打造的精致美食 体验而闻名于世。但当太阳升上天空,墨尔本将摇身一变,展 现出这座城市完全不同的一面,带您领略其高空的魅力。 墨尔本为人所熟悉的可能是各大热门酒店和星罗棋布的餐 厅。但当夏季来临,墨尔本皇冠酒店(Crown Melbourne) 的屋顶便会成为所有关注的焦点。Summer Marquee最 多可容纳450人,将在整个夏天的时间里为墨尔本的社会 名流献上盛大派对。墨尔本中央商务区的Siglo位于春天街 (Spring Street)的边缘,有着悠闲的欧式户外就餐氛围, 让您可以在阳光下畅享美酒。公主剧院(Princess Theatre) 正好给位于屋顶露台的Siglo遮挡了炙热的阳光,而且国会 大厦(Parliament House)的美景也一览无余。这里的法 式氛围很浓厚,细藤椅、白色桌布甚至像是直接取自于巴 黎的小酒馆,但这里的鸡尾酒却来自世界各地。在炎热的 天气里,很多就餐者会选择阿贝罗鸡尾酒和香槟酒,以及 直接来自Melbourne Supper Club酒窖的葡萄酒。著名的 Melbourne Supper Club酒吧刚好位于Siglo的楼下,很多 顾客在去楼上的Siglo喝酒抽雪茄之前会在这里小酌一杯—— Siglo各式各样的精选古巴雪茄包括高斯巴(Cohiba)、乌普 曼(Upmann)和帕特加斯(Partagas)。 >

classics, cocktails and culture alike. There’s the Pina Colada-esque Poco Loco, the Pretty in Pink, a Good Old Mai Tai and the Heavens to Betsy, along with an extensive wine and spirits list. Patrons are encouraged to pop downstairs to Fancy Hanks, the owners’ BBQ restaurant, but there’s also a short menu of refined Southern American bites like crudites and artichoke dip, smoked brisket sandwiches and buttermilk coleslaw. The smokers downstairs are even used to add flavour to Good Heavens’ signature spritz syrups. Over on Russell Street, QT Melbourne’s custom-built hotel has carved out a slice of the sky with its long, trendy rooftop bar. Perched atop the 11th floor, the QT Rooftop is a favourite with Melbourne’s socialites and celebrities, whom you’ll find perched on low-lying industrial couches

next to an impressive, succulent garden. Right on the cusp of China Town in the heart of the CBD, the rooftop’s skyline is skyscraper-ringed, and is the perfect spot to watch the sun turn the city golden as it slips behind the horizon. The rooftop is already readying for New Year’s Eve, when it’s set to be one of the best spots to ring in 2018, with a front row seat to the city’s celebrations. If you’re after a real bird’s-eye view of the city, Eureka 89 is the one reservation worth making. Located on the 89th floor of the Eureka Tower at Southbank, the fine dining room has 360-degree views out over the city. The floor-to-ceiling windows are hard to take your eyes off, but the degustation dining will certainly vie for your attention. Throughout December, the kitchen will be kept busy with a four-course festive feast

墨尔本最著名的屋顶就在附近,位于一栋毫无特色的建筑 的第3层。步入Madame Brussels的屋顶就好像步入一个英 式花园派对——白色的草坪家具、人造草皮以及艳丽的遮阳 伞仅仅是冰山一角。就地取材的腊味拼盘、装满甜品的精致 茶架,以及酒单上一杯杯的飘仙酒,让您能够在阳光下完美 地度过周日午后时光。 以棕榈泉(Palm Springs)为主题的酒吧Good Heavens 位于伯克街(Bourke Street)的上方,鸡尾酒单的灵感来源 于80年代的经典款式,这里的鸡尾酒和酒吧文化亦是如此, 其中包括椰林飘香、红粉佳人、迈泰和Heavens to Betsy等 鸡尾酒,以及各式各样的葡萄酒和烈酒。虽然酒吧也供应少 量的南美洲精致美食,如蔬菜沙拉和鲜蓟沾酱、熏肉三明治 和酪乳凉拌菜丝,但还是鼓励顾客们去酒吧老板在楼下开 的Fancy Hanks烧烤店去用餐。烧烤的烟雾甚至为Good Heavens招牌的鸡尾酒平添了一番风味。 从罗素街(Russell Street)向上望去,墨尔本QT酒店(QT Melbourne)长长的、时尚的屋顶酒吧占据了天空的一 角。QT Rooftop位于11楼之上,是墨尔本社交名流的最爱。他 们喜欢坐在低矮的工业风格沙发上,旁边则是供应各色酒水 的吧台,令人印象颇为深刻。屋顶正位于中央商务区核心地带 唐人街(China Town)的顶部,这里的天际线被摩天大楼所 环绕,是观赏日落余辉的完美之地。屋顶已经为跨年夜做好 了准备,这里将成为迎接2018年的绝佳场所之一,您可以在前 排的座位上欣赏墨尔本的跨年活动。 如果您想要真正地鸟瞰这座城市,Eu reka 89绝对值 得预订。Eureka 89位于南岸区(Southbank)尤里卡大厦 (Eureka Tower)的第89层,这间精致美食餐厅可以360度俯 瞰整个城市的美景。从地板至天花板的落地窗看到的美景可 能会让您依依不舍,但这里的美食一定会把您的注意力吸引 过去。整个12月份,厨房都将忙于准备四道菜的节日盛宴—— 高空圣诞节(Christmas in the Sky)套餐,向您展示澳大利

French champagne, a local pinot gris from Brokenwood Wines in Beechworth and a Mount Langi Hollows Shiraz from the Grampians are just a few of the beverages paired with the meal. For a more immersive view of the city, this summer the Melbourne Star Observation Wheel is putting a new spin on its experiences. Book out an entire cabin for up to three rotations on the wheel and sip sparkling wine, take a local wine and beer flight or indulge in a Sky High Tea as the wheel spins 120 metres above the city. Cabins hold 14 seated, or up to 20 standing guests, but it’s a real treat just with a special someone. Don’t be surprised if you spot guests neither seated nor standing – the Wheel now holds yoga classes in the sky. The one hour Vinyasa Flow Yoga classes are run by local Roar Spirit Yoga instructors who use the unique vantage points of the Wheel to encourage meditation and mindfulness throughout the class. Further along Southbank’s riverside strip is where you’ll find a different way to salute the sun. The Langham Melbourne is opening up its spa facilities to non-guests.

takes glamping to a whole new level. Custom-made canvas bell tents fitted out with queen size beds, chair, table, rugs, lamps and an esky stocked with local beer and wine are lined up on the large AstroTurf lawn, alongside a pop-up bar and even an infrared sauna. During summer, you won’t need the electric blanket or heater.

Whether it’s a day finding a little piece of Zen in the big city, an evening spent watching the sun set, or a night sleeping under the stars, a summer in Melbourne is like no other.

Smooth operator The updated BMW Gran Coupe looks good, but it feels even better. You won’t mind the bump, writes Susannah Guthrie. There’s a smooth ride, and then there’s a smooth ride. The new BMW 420i Gran Coupe is the latter. Gliding down suburban roads, you might hear the speed humps and potholes, but you’ll barely feel them. Parking is a similarly tranquil experience – bar the scrupulous parking sensors – thanks to a 360-degree camera and bird’s-eye-view parking assist system. The German manufacturer’s updated 4 Series range arrived in June this year, adding new design touches and fresh tech, but it’s the feel of the five-door 420i sedan that will really stay with you. Lowered ride height means suspension is superb. It also makes getting out of the car a tad difficult, but the sumptuous leather seats mean you probably won’t want to anyway. In latte-coloured beige leather, the interior feels especially luxurious, and an electric glass sunroof soaks the car with light (although it will cost you a couple of grand extra for this particular perk). As safe as it is smooth, the car scored a five-star rating from ANCAP. A headsup display with up-to-date speed limit monitoring helps you keep your eyes on the road, while autonomous emergency braking, blind spot monitoring and lane departure warnings are all added bonuses. In a quirky but somewhat comforting twist, the seatbelt hugs itself to your body with a little tug once the car starts. For the last few years, the humble sedan has fallen out of favour with motoring fashion as the compact SUV market expands. But the Gran Coupe makes the case for bringing back the classic body shape. It has a huge boot, a roomy interior (although the roof height is friendlier to those five-foot-six and under) and an elegant exterior housing a sporty chassis. Visibility isn’t sacrificed, nor is storage space, and style is still paramount. The fresh 420i is here to prove the sedan’s still got it. And it’s spectacular. 134

Red treasures released Penfolds have opened their collection of top wines. Nick Stocks picks his favourites. In October, Penfolds released their collection of top wines, 17 in total, running from riesling to chardonnay, through a procession of Bin Series reds right up to the flagship Grange. And with the core of the red wines coming from the excellent 2015 vintage, there’s much for collectors to be excited about. The big personality of all Penfolds’ red wines has been fleshed out by a vintage that brings depth to wines across all blends, regions and styles. The 2015 Bin 2 and Bin 138 are the most accessible in terms of both price and their drinkability. Bin 2 is a blend of shiraz and mataro with dark fruits and liquorice, while Bin 138 is a blend of shiraz, grenache and mataro that amounts to a vibrant serve of blackberry and raspberry. With cellaring in mind, Coonawarra has a proven history for cellar-worthy wines, and while the Bin 389 Cabernet Shiraz has increased in price steadily, it has also jumped in quality and the 2015 is a wine that will deliver impressive drinking over the next 10 to 20 years in a good cellar. It’s one to buy in volume. Another step up in quality, power and price and you’ll find the 2015 Bin 150 Marananga Shiraz. This is an impressive demonstration of one of the Barossa Valley’s most powerful terroirs in the expert hands of the Penfolds red winemaking team and a great vintage. It is a powerhouse of blackberry fruit, chocolate and polished sturdy tannins. For a more elegant expression of Barossa shiraz, the 2015 RWT Shiraz is a more athletic style rather than sheer muscular strength. It sees only French oak and this, along with a different selection of vineyards, creates a wine with attractive perfume, abundant dark berry fruits and impressive freshness. And finally the 2013 Grange is released at four years of age and represents the best collection of shiraz parcels blended together in a vintage that has provided many attractive drinkable reds. It’s a similar wine to the 2009 vintage and will sit happily in the cellar for 20 years or more.

“A wine that will deliver impressive drinking over the next 10 to 20 years in a good cellar” 10月底,奔富酒庄(PENFOLDS)发布其顶级 葡萄酒系列,从雷司令到霞多丽共有17款葡 萄酒,其中涵盖了BIN系列红葡萄酒,更不乏 顶级的旗舰葛兰许葡萄酒。本次发布的这批 红葡萄酒大多来自2015年这个绝佳年份,着 实令葡萄酒收藏者兴奋不已。 奔富酒庄红葡萄酒的最大特点在于它的 酿造年份,这为不同品种组合、不同地区和 不同风格的葡萄酒增添了额外的魅力和意 义。就价位和口感而言,2015年份的BIN 2和 BIN 138葡萄酒最值得入手。BIN 2用西拉和 玛塔罗混酿而成,另外还有深色水果和甘草。 而BIN 138为西拉、玛塔罗和歌海娜混酿的 葡萄酒,黑莓和覆盆子味道十足。一旦入口, 便可感受到那种美妙的融合。 说到窖藏,库纳瓦拉(COONAWARRA) 出产的葡萄酒均具有窖藏潜能。2015年份的 BIN 128西拉葡萄酒就值得在酒窖窖藏10年 或更久以后再来享用。BIN 389赤霞珠西拉 葡萄酒在价格稳步攀升的同时,质量也有了 大幅飞跃。如果将2015年份的BIN 389在优 质酒窖中窖藏10至20年后再来品鉴,那将是

一种无与伦比的享受,因此值得大量入手。 2 015 年份 的 B I N 15 0 玛 拉南戈园 (MARANANGA)西拉葡萄酒在质量、酒劲 和价格方面更胜一筹。巴罗萨谷(BAROSSA VALLEY)良好的地理环境、奔富酒庄红葡萄 酒酿酒团队的专业水准加之2015年的绝佳 气候,使其集各种优点于一身。这款葡萄酒 带有黑莓和巧克力的香气以及完美的单宁结 构,可谓该系列葡萄酒中的上乘之品。 在巴罗萨的西拉葡萄酒中,还有一款 更 加典雅和芳香的同样值得窖藏,它就是2015 年份的RWT西拉葡萄酒。RWT西拉仅采用法 国橡木桶酿制,精选各类葡萄园的优质葡萄, 酒香芬芳,有着丰富的深色浆果味,口感鲜 爽,令人印象深刻。 最后登场的是窖藏4年之久的2013年份 的葛兰许葡萄酒,该款葡萄酒在这一年份众 多优质红葡萄酒中脱 颖 而出,堪 称 最顶级 的西拉葡萄酒。它具有黑莓、巧克力和香料 的甘甜香气以及 浓郁的肉质果实味道。与 20 09年份的葡萄酒相似,2013年份的葛兰 许如果窖藏20年或更长时间,口感更佳。

我们采访了克里斯托弗·罗宾(Christophe Robin),谈到了创业、超级名 模头发护理、我们在护理头发中常犯的错误,以及为何天然成分最有利于 头发健康等等话题。 We chat to Christophe Robin about starting his career, working with supermodels, the common mistakes we’re making with hair care and why nature’s way is best when it comes to maintaining healthy locks.

Christophe Robin has always done things a little differently. Sitting at a quaint little cafe in leafy Darlinghurst – a quirky, inner-Sydney neighbourhood that is made up of local fashion designers, fancy restaurants and bars that still garner lines to get into come nightfall – the waitress places our coffees in front of us. Pouring a sugar in his espresso, Christophe notices no teaspoons have been provided. Instead of waiting for the waitress to come back around, he grabs what looks like a Montblanc pen from his bag, flips it upside down, and uses the end of it to stir the sugar in. A little different, but effective. Similar to his products. “Everybody told me I was mad at the time,” Christophe says. “It was 25 years ago that I decided to create the Moisturising hair oil with lavender and the Cleansing mask with lemon, two products that were made up of mainly natural ingredients. People told me it wasn’t trendy to have natural product, but I didn’t care. Today, they’re still my best sellers and win all the awards. When they were released people wanted to copy them, but nobody could because of their originality.” Since his teens, Christophe has gone against the status quo. Growing up on a farm in a village within the Champagne region of France, which had a population of only 160, Christophe knew he needed to escape. At the young age of 14, he moved to the closest city and began working as a hair colourist in a small salon. Unbeknownst to him at the time, it was here that he was to receive a piece of advice that would influence his choices throughout his career. “There was a colourist from the 60s that would come in as a customer and tell me to take good care of her hair,” Christophe says. “She told me good colour cannot be achieved without first having good hair. It’s like having bad skin. Make-up might make it look better, but it won’t fix it. The same goes with colouring hair. If you look after your hair, it will be loyal and the colours will last.” > 140

我们来到达令赫斯特(Darlinghurst)一 间十分古雅的小咖啡厅。女服务员把咖啡 送到了我们面前,克里斯托弗在咖啡里放 了些糖,却发现没有茶匙。没想到的是,他 并没有等服务员去取茶匙,而是从包中取 出一根像万宝龙钢笔的东西,随即把它调 了个个儿,用它搅拌起咖啡来。这有点另类, 但却很有效,就像他的产品一样。 克里斯托弗对我说: “那时大家都说我 发疯了。25年前我决定打造薰衣草保湿发 油和柠檬水洗面膜,它们均以天然成分元 素为主。但那时很多人对我说天然产品不 符合潮流,可我不信那一套。时至今日,这 两款产品仍是我最畅销的产品,而且获奖 无数。产品发布后,别的商家也竞相模仿, 但都以失败告终,其根本原因就在于其独 创性。” 少年时代的克里斯托弗就不满足于现 状。他在法国香槟产区一座只有160人的乡 村农场里长大。14岁时,他前往离这里最 近的城市工作,在一家小型发廊担任染发 师。令他没有想到的是,他在那里听到了 对他在职业生涯中所做种种决定影响甚 大的一句话。 克里斯托弗回忆说: “当时来了一位顾 客,让我好好护理她的头发,她是20世纪 60年代的染发师。她对我讲,如果没有好 的发质,不可能染出好的颜色效果。如同 皮肤不好一样。化妆可以让皮肤看起来不 错,但不能解决根本问题。染发也是一个 道理。如果你认真护理你的头发,它会回 报你,颜色也会更持久。” 假如你见过克里斯托弗同名的头发护 理和自然发型等精品系列就会发现,它们 均不含尼泊金酯和硅油成分。尽管含有硅 油的护发产品随处可见,但他个人并不主 张使用硅油。克里斯托弗推崇健康的发 >

“ PEOPLE TOLD ME IT WASN’T TRENDY TO HAVE NATURAL PRODUCT, BUT I DIDN’T CARE”

CHRISTOPHE’S TOP TIPS FOR WASHING YOUR HAIR 1. Detangle hair before washing by brushing from the tip and working your way up to the roots. 2. After you wet your hair add just a little bit of shampoo – don’t overdo it. 3. Give your scalp a good massage to release tension and aid blood circulation. 4. Add a little water and emulsify some more. 5. Rinse like crazy! Your hair should be squeaky clean. 6. If you have to use conditioner, just apply a small amount to the tips and be sure to rinse thoroughly. 7. Never dry your hair by rubbing the tips between two pieces of towel.

“IF YOU LOOK AFTER YOUR HAIR THEN IT WILL BE LOYAL”

If you look at Christophe’s eponymous range of strictly hair care – no styling – products, they’re all paraben- and silicone-free. That’s because he personally hates silicone, which is found in the majority of hair-care products on the shelf. Christophe believes in healthy hair, and if you’re using products that contain silicone then your hair can’t be healthy. Silicone coats the hair to help detangle and deliver an instant result of shine and gloss, but there’s a hidden danger in continuous use of the synthetic ingredient. It not only coats your hair, but also your scalp, meaning the scalp is unable to breathe and gets oily after a day or two. If your hair is oily, then the strand isn’t held in the root securely, and that’s why you see hair loss in so many people. “In Paris, when I was colouring supermodels’ hair, like Linda Evangelista, Claudia Schiffer and Elle Macpherson, the biggest concern for them was to not damage their hair,” Christophe says. “At the time you could only find shampoo with sulfate in it, which dries the hair. Would you wash you fragile cashmere with house detergent?” He answers his own question. “No. It’s the same with coloured hair that is fragile. That’s why I created my range, to help me treat and soothe hair before and after colouring, as well as between visits at home between. The best way to do this is through nature.” 质。如果使用了含有硅油的产品,头发就 Ingredients come from all over.
