Who doesn’t love to travel? Personally, I can’t seem to get enough of it. Living in Shanghai we have so many fascinating destinations at our disposal. In the cover story this month, we asked families around Asia to choose their favorite vacation spots and share their stories and experiences along the journey (page 14). You’ll be well prepared for your travels to Sri Lanka, the Philippines, South Africa and more after reading their tips.
In Life & Culture, we show you our swimwear picks for kids ages 7-10 (page 10), sure to make them the most stylish youngsters at the pool this summer. We also give you a sneak peak of our day at Shanghai Disneyland Resort before its grand opening on June 16 (page 12).
In Learning, we delve into the topic of achieving higher education and interview two new high school graduates about their experiences applying to college (page 24). We also give you some tips on helping your kids manage their stress and get prepared for the application process in the future (page 25).
The hot and humid Shanghai weather is just around the corner. In Food & Fun we show you the best spots around town to get cold sweets and treats your kids will be craving in no time (page 32). Check out a killer recipe for granita on page 35 for another cooling dish to try this summer.
In Entertainment, read all about the new circus that is about to hit Shanghai — Cirkopolis (page 42). It’ll ‘wow’ your family with their stunning performances and tricks.
So enjoy your summer whether you are traveling or staying right here in Shanghai. We’ll see you back in the fall — until next time!
