Alternative Green Guide (Korean Air)
The joy of visiting a new city and finding your byline in a local magazine is priceless. My latest trip to Seoul, Korea was incredible. I marvelled at the palaces, relished the food, and even donned their traditional attire.
But the icing on the cake was flipping through the Korean Air in-flight magazine, Morning Calm, and finding my article within. No greater thrill than seeing my byline in print, even 13 years into my editorial career.
The more I travel, the more I realise how unique Singapore is. It's a bustling, successful city with world-class infrastructure. But what sets it apart is that it manages to straddle its 'developed' face with a cloak of green, maintaining more than 46% of its land as a green cover. This is what makes Singapore unique and a pleasure to live in. My latest article in the Korean Air magazine takes tourists on a green trail across Singapore, highlighting some fabulous urban landscapes such as farms growing produce on top of malls, museums and hotels that double up as gardens, and walking trails that let you forget that you're in the middle of a busy city.
