The new Museum of Ethnography in Budapest looks like a masterpiece by NAPUR Architect. Given the multiple awards, it’s not hard to see why. As part of the Liget Budapest Project, Europe’s largest urban-cultural development, this museum blends dynamic and simple lines to harmonise with the surrounding park and urban area. Featuring design elements like a glass curtainwall and landscaped roof garden, the building stands as a symbol of contemporary architecture. Inside, flexible spaces cater to both historical and contemporary exhibits, the fostering of social dialogue, inclusivity and experiential learning.
Escape to the natural beauty of Avana Retreat, a mountainside haven renowned for its enchanting landscapes and embrace of local traditions. Located in Mai Chau, Vietnam, take on the new Avana Immersion package that’s curated to celebrate the breathtaking scenery and the vibrant culture of the ethnic groups. Partake in craft workshops, embark on nature treks and cruise through the local villages in an open-top military-style jeep. Relax in their mountain suite, savour delicious meals at Green Chili and unwind with a massage by the jungle cascade.
