There are a surprising number of entry points for travellers to Dakar, and recent openings are making the Senegalese capital easier to explore than ever. After strolling the gallery, walk down to Le Lagon 1, a chic lunch spot and beach club whose quirky boat decor feels right out of a Wes Anderson film.
Istanbul's Biennial kicks off on 14 September, with exhibitions from 56 artists representing 25 countries. After checking out installations from Brit Eloise Hawser and film artist Melvin Moti why not tack on a trip to the country's newest cultural destination? It's attached to the timber OMM arts museum, opening at the beginning of September with a sleek design from star architect Kengo Kuma.
There are more than 1, pieces of contemporary art inside, but for a glimpse of something more traditional spend a day strolling Odunpazari's historic tiny alleys and lanes, with houses painted the colour of Easter eggs. The area around the central Miera Street, meanwhile, has evolved into an alternative creative hub, with bars such as the plastic-free Kanepes, whose courtyard hosts DJ sessions.
Creating a splash in the Old Town is the newly opened Barents restaurant , where chef Ivans Smigarevs nets tinglingly fresh seafood from the Faroe Islands and creates Scandi- and Japanese-style dishes such as langoustine with sour cream, sea-scallop ceviche and a basil granita. Just outside the town is the Kemeri national park, with boardwalks stretching through the marshes. If you missed this year's festival, next year's has already been confirmed, along with Riga's art biennale. River or inland? This has been the question dividing both Bangkok locals and travellers for the past few years.
Lots of development in the city , including the swish Park Hyatt, tempted a very in-the-know crowd away from riverfront stalwarts such as the historic Mandarin Oriental two years ago. But developments including the new waterside Creative District have been bringing that same set back. Earlier this summer, smart Capella opened a stroll south of the Mandarin Oriental on tranquil waterside Charoenkrung road, the oldest street in Bangkok.
There was also the April launch of the contemporary Rosewood in central Ploenchit, the capital's business and fashion district, with vertical gardens and an outdoor pool in a building that resembles a shard of glass. It's walking distance to the city's leafy Lumpini Park where giant monitor lizards roam at more than a metre long, they are like tiny dragons , elevated train lines connecting you to the sprawling Chatuchak market and high-rise shopping centres to make you feel like you are properly in the belly of this huge metropolis in the most thrilling way.
Idyllic, elegant Bordeaux is hardly at risk of dropping off the traveller radar — the express train route that slashed 70 minutes off the journey from London two summers ago has helped bolster a steady stream of tourism year round. Late summer is when the area is at its most romantic; in the nearby seaside town of Arcachon bistros serve mounds of oysters and crisp Semillon, and the 13th-century Chateau d'Agassac hosts wine dinners with seemingly endless bottles of its silky signature reds.

And travellers already have plenty of smart stays to choose from, including the two-year-old Yndo with its stash of modern art inside a 19th-century mansion. La Maison d'Estournel is a bedroom country estate on a rambling five acres of cabernet vines and centuries-old trees on the Cos d'Estournel wine estate; the owner's mansion is also available to rent — at a price tag that'll keep anyone but the top one per cent out.
The entire property is owned by Michel Reybier, founder of boutique hotel La Reserve, which is famous for its glitzy parties during Paris Fashion Week. For a snapshot of contemporary Madeiran cooking, head to Kampo, where Julio Pereria twists island ingredients — lamb, tuna, sardines — into new shapes. Thrill-seekers can try their hand at canyoning and paddle-boarding, bumping around the interior on a Jeep safari, or taking a yoga class in the middle of the forest. Those familiar with city-of-the-moment Lisbon should look here for the next natural stepping stone.
They're now able to stay overnight, too, as Boathouse has opened waterfront guestrooms with signature whitewashed timber and crisp, nautical linens. Snapper ceviche and salmon sashimi may be on the menu, but look to the blackboard for market-fresh fish grilled in garlic, parsley and lemon. And is reason enough for the many Iceberg loyalists to leave their local scene behind. By Maresa Manara. Seaside Asbury Park has the trappings of a classic Americana beach town: mile-long boardwalk, mini-golf, hour diners serving coffee and pie.
It kicked off a few years ago, when real estate firm iStar became Master Developer of the Waterfront and brought in visionary designer Anda Andrei and the team behind SALT hotels to open The Asbury Hotel, which feels like part beachside hangout, part vintage clubhouse, with a ground-level beer garden and excellent egg sandwiches at breakfast.
Finally, this month brings the opening of the grown-up Asbury Ocean Club pictured below , , from iStar, Andrei and Salt again, attracting Manhattan sophisticates the way The Asbury Hotel attracted the Brooklyn hipsters. It's all under an hour from central Manhattan and makes a lot of sense to tack on for a day or two if hitting New York City this summer: you get that old-school America hit with enough of gloss to make it on trend for right now. Because no matter how stylish a summer-weekend destination from New York gets, there should always — always!
Alicia Keys fait son retour… en roller
Until recently, Botafogo was regarded as the so-what, residential bit between the beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema to the south, and the touristy samba clubs of Lapa to the north. Upscale and beautiful, but snoozy. Then, in the run-up to the Rio Olympics, bars , restaurants and arts venues, priced out elsewhere, began moving into its grand old casas and industrial warehouses.
And dreamy Canastra Rose, where booking is essential, plates up cheese and wine in a crumbly, romantic old mansion. For something more low-key, pop into breezy Sorvetes Hoba for artisanal ice cream in flavours including blue matcha and coconut, mango and cardamom.
Rising Stars of French Winemaking
The southern African nation saw over a million travellers explore its deserts and coastlines last year, and to meet this demand more than a dozen lodges were opened two of which landed on our Hot List. Yet momentum is not slowing down; in , a series of new hotels that aim beyond the usual safari set suggest that Namibia may be the next great stop on the gypset itinerary, following in the steps of Tulum and Bali.
To prove the point, the team behind New York -based Habitas will be opening a room hotel an hour outside the capital Windhoek later this year, with a top-of-the-line spa and plenty of space for kaftan-draped guests to mingle, spritz in hand. This will follow the August opening of Sonop from stylish French group Zannier. Wildlife is readily on display, but the lodge reopens with a focus on outdoor pursuits, which could include desert hikes to ancient rock paintings, or quad biking.
Further proof that experiential travel is evolving even in the wilderness. Lisbon's status as Europe 's hottest city-break destination looks pretty invincible. Especially now that the design-focused Bairro Alto Hotel will be back in business after almost two years of renovation.
Set inside a repurposed Sixties building in the centre of town, it has everything from yoga classes to co-working spaces and wine tastings. Understanding that travellers now need to be plugged in, too, Wood provides day passes — very handy for those seeking to extend that Lisbon weekend break into the week, but not fall behind on work. Olive and citrus trees scent the breeze, spiky agave and towering royal palms grow along the wide Pacific beaches , all backed by the Santa Ynez mountains.
Even in a state known for its film-set backgrounds, this stretch feels particularly golden. Yet this narrative is changing, as the recent arrival of design-forward hotels and high-concept restaurants is proof of a new momentum and broader appeal. The historic San Ysidro Ranch, where JFK and Jackie O honeymooned and which was severely damaged by the mudslides that ravaged the area in early , has finally reopened.
Meanwhile, the caught-in-time Montecito Inn Charlie Chaplin was an investor in the s is now home to The Silver Bough, an ambitious restaurant with an course, wine-paired menu run by a hip couple from Los Angeles. And downtown is reinvigorated as spots such as modern-Indian restaurant Bibi Ji fill its colonial shopfronts. By Rebecca Misner.

Two years after being virtually shut down by the devastation of the hurricanes, teardrop-shaped Dominica is set to be the Caribbean isle we are all talking about this year. For one, its hotels, including eco-retreat Jungle Bay, took advantage of the shut-down to undertake some major work. The property will reopen next month with reimagined standalone villas with bamboo and palm-leaf details in a nod to the jungle that blankets much of the island, while other big players are moving in.
Luxury brand Kempinski pictured is due to open its Caribbean-facing rooms in October surrounded by the dense forests of Dominica's Cabrits National Park which runs right onto the beach.
In addition to the spa and five on-site pools , the hotel also offers complete access to the island's natural attractions, including its rivers yes, you read that right.
