Peace + Pleasure on the Silk Sea

About Us

Re-launched for 2016!

We celebrate beaches, boating, cruises, diving, fashion, property, resorts, swimming and the local sea lifestyle of the magical South China Sea region!

We are an online publication updated weekly!

We were founded by California journalist Christopher Cottrell in 2011.

Mr. Cottrell has reported and traveled in the South China Sea region since 1997. He has lived in China since 2003.

He has written for Agence France Press, the Associated Press, the Boston Globe, CNN, Fodors, The Guardian, the Los Angeles Times, Honolulu Star-Bulletin, South China Morning Post, Reuters, Macau Business, that's Shanghai, the Beijinger, Delta Bridges, and Global Times, among others.

Our team dives, sails, snorkels, surfs, fishes, lays on the sands, and savors all the best the South China Sea has to offer.
