Australia

Australia reopened its borders to international travelers earlier in 2022. Avoid crowds in one of the country’s off-the-beaten-path regions. The Northern Territory offers culture, adventure, wildlife experiences and culinary delights. The region is home to Uluru (previously Ayers Rock), Kakadu National Park and the city of Darwin. Experiential accommodation Finniss River Lodge recently opened. With only six suites, the lodge offers a secluded escape, whether you’re interested in a relaxing or adventurous getaway.

Seoul Garners Good Fortune on a Wave of Cultural Popularity

First came the musical mega-hit, “Gangnam Style,” in 2012, leading the band PSY to the top of the charts, only to be followed by other beloved K-pop bands like BTS. Then, in 2020, Parasite became the first non-English-language film to win the Academy Award for Best Picture. The following year, the latest in a long line of Korean television shows or K-dramas, Squid Game became Netflix’s most watched series and the most watched program in 94 countries. Add the rise of Korean fine dining around the globe along with the demand for K-beauty products and high fashion, often influenced by the traditional Korean garb called hanbok, and you arrive at the cultural phenomenon called hallyu, or the Korean Wave. Indeed, South Korean popular culture, with Seoul at its epicenter, reached such a status Boston’s Museum of Fine Arts installed a hallyu exhibition, currently on display through July, which originated at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum.
