After spending all week surrounded by concrete, bumper-to-bumper traffic, and angry commuters, you want—no, need—to get out of the city. Here are four quick getaways from New York City, Singapore, Ulaanbaatar, and even Cancún. Then it’s up to you how long you stay away.
Livingston Manor: Learn how to fly fish, relax at a recently renovated bed and breakfast, and eat seasonal food in the Catskills.
Pulau Ubin: Ride the ferry, walk through mangroves, hike by lotus-filled ponds, and mountain bike around a quarry just outside of Singapore.
Songino Khairkhan: Visit a nomadic tribe, have a tea picnic, tour the prairie on horseback, and sleep in a ger away from bustling Ulaanbaatar.
Isla Mujeres: Feel the cool sea breeze, listen to crashing waves, drink cinnamon-infused coffee, and watch for dolphins away from the craziness of Cancún.
