As Seen In… New York Magazine

October 29, 2013 5:49 pm

In the latest issue of New York magazine (November 4), order there’s a big Winter Travel special encompassing lesser known cities in popular destinations: instead of London, physician consider Birmingham, for example, or forget Paris and try Bordeaux next time. I contributed two of these alternatives: Hyderabad instead of Mumbai, in India, and Durban instead of Cape Town, in South Africa. Contrary to the utter outrage some seem to be voicing on Twitter (of course), this isn’t meant to say the original cities should be skipped altogether or aren’t worth seeing (hello, have you read this blog? I heart Cape Town!). The goal of the feature, which some seem to have missed, is to champion the unsung gems that are too often overlooked in favor of their more touristed counterparts, destinations that may even share a lot of the same merits. It’s a great package – check the whole thing out here.
