Close to Bali and yet still unspoiled by tourism is Java’s Banyuwangi, offering emerald-green rice fields, beautiful beaches, fabulous scenery, three national parks – and the opportunity to climb a volcano.
Cali Road Trip: Explore Chinatown's alleyways. Ignore the call of the pagoda-style roofs lining Grant Avenue & find your way to the the side alleys. Spofford Alley, Waverly Place, Ross Alley, Stockton Street. For dim sum, stick with the standby City View most other Chinatown options are lackluster. Or hop a cab and head to Ton Kiang in the Richmond District—the upwardly mobile new Chinatown—where you'll gorge on a stream of impeccably fresh dim sum served up in soft translucent wrappers.
