Meaningful Destination

Her role as Vogue Thailand’s fashion editor makes people think “Pook” Jongkol Palarit only travels to fashion capitals around the world. In fact, her favourite destinations are far more magical than we think. COPENHAGEN, DENMARK “What I love most about Copenhagen is the lifestyle of the people here.

Remarkable Journey: Architectural Love

ARCHITECTURAL LOVE STORY CHALISA VIRAVAN Every city in this world has its own unique architecture. What kind of architecture do these celebrities love most? Let’s check it out. PHONGMANAS SAWADDICHAI I love the area around the Seine River in Paris, because there are many old buildings, but the people walking in the area are very urban, providing an amazing contrast of old and new. Near the river are the Notre-Dame Cathedral, and the Louvre Museum, where you can see architecture in architecture. Two years ago, Dior had its fashion show in the Louvre, and they built a mock-up building inside it, reflecting the culture of mixing old and new.
