Airplane

5. jeromejarre

This 24 year old French jetsetter is well known for his appearance in a popular Vine video and can be found Snapping all of his adventures, no matter how big or small, and spreading numerous positive messages on the app as well. Jerome can also be found engaging his followers in various photo challenges. This is one account you are definitely going to want to follow.

4. caseyneistat

This producer and filmmaker is anything but ordinary. He makes sure to snap his many adventures on the regular, filming in a way that makes his followers feel as though they are right there with him. Casey is one of the most well-known, and entertaining users on snapchat so you would be silly not to follow this travel guru. You may or may not develop a major case of wanderlust, and get a few laughs along the way.

Kayak in Water

3. topdeck.travel

This tourism company has teamed up with YouTube legend, Jimmy Hill, and UK-based agency Thinkhouse to utilize the up and coming realtime messaging app. This account is deemed the “world’s first Snapchat travel show” and includes Hill’s European adventures, explorations and more. This is one account that should be followed asap.

2. Marriott Hotels

Being the first Snapchat campaign for hotel brands, Marriott has utilized Snapchat to appeal to the younger traveler, as a storytelling device, mainly to support the brand’s Travel Brilliantly campaign. Marriott has partnered with various influencers to get their message out there (Casey Neistat – above – being one of them) and connect with users on an emotional level.

1. National Geographic (Discover tool)

Our number 1 travel Snapchat account would have to be the one and only National Geographic. When Snapchat introduced its “Discover” feature this past January, 11 different publications immediately joined, National Geographic being one of them. National Geographic, along with many other major companies, are using Snapchat to draw in the Millennial generation. We must say, it definitely seems to be working (have you checked out their daily snaps?!). All you have to do is swipe left on Snapchat to find this Discover tool

Secret Retreats: Ancient Kingdoms in Indonesia, Cambodia & Laos

Where luxury meets tradition: 7 unique hotels that will evoke a sense of wonder

1

Like a strong espresso on an early morning walk, reading about Secret Retreats has us awakened the dreamer and doer in us. We have never encountered such a luxurious approach to traveling in Asia, so we had to partner with these guys so you could reap the benefits! Secret Retreats prides itself on being fuller than full service, offering melt-worthy accommodations, off-beat activities, rejuvenating spa services, and idyllic excursions.  Here are seven exclusive properties for our Wanderable couples where incredible luxury meets tradition. You can thank us later.

1. TUGU BALI(Indonesia): Following the coast of Bali along Canggu Beach, this resort is a dream for the still at heart. Get lost on the walkways of a wild garden, where winds are rumored to whisper of Balinese spirits.

2. TUGU LOMBOK (Indonesia): Periwinkle waters mirror the sunrise over Mount Rinjani, fixed with plunge pools, tropical gardens, and bamboo bungalows. This hotel evokes ancient Hindu times, an honest oasis from the daily grind.

3

3. MISOOL ECO RESORT (Indonesia): A sustainable paradise for the urban treehugger, this exclusive hotel and conservation center is located on a private island just south of the equator and holds only a maximum of 32 guests. Suffice it to say, what happens in Misool stays in Misool.

4

4. THE SAMAR VILLAS & SPA RESORT (Cambodia): A haven of well-being, the Samar Villas envelop you in a cloud of peacefulness and offer the richness of fantastic archeological ruins and ancient temples for the culturally curious daytripper.

5

5. BALI JIWA VILLA(Indonesia): These lavish modern villas offer the royal treatment. In true Balinese style, politeness and minimalism are paired with indulgence and luxury in nonchalant conversation.

6

6. JEEVA BELOAM BEACH CAMP (Indonesia): A beachfront “glamping” experience on a secluded cove with white sand beaches, this is an untouched gem that can center and stun even the most jaded traveler.

7

7. SATRI HOUSE (Laos): Here you’ll taste sumptuous homemade dinners and soak in the gorgeous colonial Laotian architecture. Immersed in the city’s heart, you can enjoy quiet moments with your lover and unwind while observing the everyday life of locals from your balcony. People-watching is our favorite sport.

Secret Retreats quotes the Buddha on their website, saying “when the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.”  So clear your mind while you experience ultimate relaxation, grab a drink with the one you love and sit back while all your needs are met.  We promise, your joy will never, ever want to leave. Secret Retreats: you deserve it.
