The July issue of That’s PRD is out now, in both paper-and-ink form citywide and digital PDF form on our website. Here, Editor-in-Chief Matthew Bossons introduces the magazine:
For this issue, we’ve gone ‘full travel.’ And you know what they say about going full travel: You’ll never go back! That’s right, once the travel bug bites you, you’ll find that all your spare cash and time becomes earmarked for adventure in exotic destinations. It happened to me, so I’m saying this from experience.
To celebrate the diverse array of destinations that are conveniently located in our own backyard, we’ve spoken with a panel of China-based travel experts to assemble this month’s cover story: Our 2019 ‘Dream Destinations Guide’ for the Asia-Pacific region. On pages 38-47, you’ll find a selection of fascinating spots from the Middle East to the South Pacific and everywhere in between.
In our City section this month, we share with you the winners from our third annual That’s PRD Writing Contest, which concluded with a well-attended reading event last month at the Conrad Guangzhou. While we only had enough space to include our top four submissions, I want to personally thank everyone that participated and I hope to see you again next year!
The rest of this issue is an eclectic blend of editorial goodness that I just know you’re going to love. There’s a spread on the season’s hottest must-have item (beach towels, obviously) on pages 20-21, an interview with the South China-based founder of a skateboard lifestyle company on page 17 and a quick review of three new homegrown albums to check out on page 32.
I’ll close this off by reminding all our China-travel-loving readers that the third edition of our Explore China travel guide is set to launch next month. Stay tuned!
