“Paris is always a good idea,” said legendary actress Audrey Hepburn. Come to think of it, so are Tokyo, Sydney and New York.
Even for the most well-travelled, a trip to another country always starts with the same exciting set of questions: Where should you go, where should you stay and what should you pack? This doesn’t change whether you’re three or 30. That’s why we’ve put together this special issue, designed with jet-set families in mind.
We’ve asked some of Singapore’s most glamorous mothers to tell us about their favourite family getaways and asked them to divulge their hottest travel tips. We’ve also done the packing: Whether your tot is visiting a buzzing metropolis, enjoying a road trip across the countryside or cruising into a tropical marina, we have everything he or she needs from dawn till dusk. Think: Carry-ons filled with cosy scarfs, Breton tees, picnic baskets and more.
We also spoke to Singapore’s most well-travelled family—the Rogers, who are the current Guinness World Record holders for the most countries visited in a continuous journey by car. Having set their roots in Singapore, they invited us into their home for a peek at the mementos, and memories, they’ve picked up from their adventures around the world.
And for new mamas starting out on the biggest journey of all, we’ve also announced the winners of our “Most Loved Baby Care Awards 2017: Getting Ready for Baby”. It’s the ultimate packing list for the start of a wondrous journey that will last a lifetime.
So the question is: Are you ready to hit the road with us?
