The Escapist Special Edition issue 08 - The Monocle Travel Annual
A Journal of Places Less Explored
The Escapist, Monocle’s journal of places less explored, is back – and it’s more intrepid than ever. In this issue we head to Corsica to delve beneath the surface of this island and its dual identities; we visit Sri Lanka to meet the architects building the country’s future as investment floods in; and we go for a wander around Cairo’s most liveable district.
Plus, we pack our bags and head off on two epic journeys: one following the route of the old Orient Express, the other through the south of the US, from New Orleans to Marfa. And finally we present this year’s Travel Top 50, a round-up of the best airlines, hottest hotels and warmest welcomes. Dive in.
