In this issue, we feature Hong Kong, the tourism hotspot in Asia, simmering for the past few months due to the democratic dissent against the now defunct extradition bill. Tourist numbers have declined week after week and HK may not achieve its targeted numbers if the various stakeholders fail to resolve their differences soon. On the domestic front, we take a critical look at Andhra Pradesh and why inspite of great tourism potential, the State's administration is squandering away the future with its 'two steps forward - three steps backward' approach. 'It's My Life' tells the story of Mahesh Shirodkar, MD of Tamarind Global, a tour-weddings-events powerhouse. And 'Explore' the world's best wellness retreats.
