Summer love

Feature : If it's the Kansai Scene Summer Travel Guide it must be July! In what is now an annual ritual, KS scribes have scoured the world to find locations that will inspire travel plans. We have tried to anticipate the variety of tastes among our readers. Sun lovers, for example, will find heaven in the Philippines and sun sceptics will find haven in the Scottish islands; while adventurers might tour by local buses in Laos, those searching for inner peace might try meditating in Puna; and those of us who want to enliven our time in Japan will find excursions near and far. Those carbon conscious souls who are bent on staying put will with these pages be able to travel in their imaginations. So whichever kind of reader you are, wherever you are going, bon voyage, and don't forget the omiyage!
