Macao is an iconic city of neons and casinos, but what we want to show you in this issue of India Outbound is that it can be more than just that with a plethora of cultural experiences now available in the city-state. Resorts in Macao aim to transport you between countries – from Italy to France. If trekking is up your alley, then the historical Xi’an offers challenging peaks waiting to be conquered. But if relaxed walks are more your thing then Lampang in northern Thailand could be your next destination. From stargazing in Chile, South America, to a mid-western experience in Wichita, a city in the state of Kansas in the United States of America; from romancing while experiencing an adrenaline rush in New Zealand to imbibing in copious amounts of beer at the various festivals in Germany – something will definitely pique your interest. But if after all what you desire is serenity, then the peaceful tea slopes of Sri Lanka is ideal for escaping the monotony of city life.
