If the weather is bad or you just fancy learning a bit more about the history of Wales, pop in to one of these museums.

 

The National Waterfront Museum in Swansea is the top spot in the country for those interested in Wales’ proud industrial and maritime heritage, while the National Slate Museum in Gwynedd focuses on the rock used to roof buildings all around the world.

 

Learn about the men and women who worked in this tough industry at the South Wales Miners Museum in Port Talbot, which focuses on the way of life of miners. If you are in Kidwelly, pop into the Kidwelly Industrial Museum to look at the old tinplate works, coal mine and other local industries.

 

More diverse exhibits are on show at the National Museum Cardiff, where art, natural history and geology artifacts jostle for space. When the weather is good, the open-air St Fagans National History Museum is a delight to wander around, too.

 

Discover the history of the Welsh wool industry at the National Wool Museum in Lllandysul, or look back on 100 years of exhibits at the West Wales Museum of Childhood for a dose of nostalgia.

San Juan Better Than Ever After Hurricane Maria

It’s been almost three years since Category 5 Hurricane Maria made landfall on Puerto Rico, wreaking havoc on the island and leaving most residents without electricity and clean water. Tourism, which accounts for 6.5 percent of Puerto Rico’s gross domestic product, took a beating, with hotels closed for year-long repairs, airlines cutting service and cruise lines shifting itineraries to other Caribbean destinations. Timing for the hurricane couldn’t have been worse, coming on the heels of the government’s announcement in May 2017 that it was unable to pay more than $70 billion in public debt and thus forced to file for bankruptcy. Large protests and a change of government would follow. Then, in January 2020, a 6.4-magnitude earthquake rocked the south side of the island, forcing San Juan restaurants to close while power was restored. And as we write this story, coronavirus runs rampant across the globe with severe economic implications for all destinations, including Puerto Rico.

Mix Work and Play in Bangkok

The 1985 song “One Night in Bangkok” mentions many of the overindulgences of this city. One of them is massage parlors. Today, however, a Thai massage is considered an activity that improves one’s physical and mental well-being. The city has shed its former reputation as a place of wild nightlife and decadence, over the past few decades emerging as a major center for international commerce, wellness initiatives and tourism.
