What’s in my carry-on bag? – Vivienne Tang, Wellness Editor

FEAT. Vivienne tang founder of destination deluxe (2)

Vivienne Tang wears many hats. When she’s not busy judging the Mr & Mrs Smith Hotel Awards, or running The Sanctuary in Hong Kong, she can be found writing and reviewing exotic spa retreats for Destination Deluxe, the travel and wellness publication that she launched in 2016.

As such, Tang spends a lot of time on the road – or more specifically, in airports. So who better to kick-start our new interview series? Without further ado, here are the five travel essentials that Tang swears by when travelling.

Subtle Energies Facial Blend

“It is deeply hydrating and promotes collagen and elastin production.  I always slather it on when I’m flying.”

Dr. Jackson’s Coconut Melt

“It’s 100% certified organic coconut oil and therefore solidifies in cooler temperatures. Perfect for dry lips and hands. This small 15ml is a great companion if you’re on the go.” Buttons earphones

“They’re not only super stylish, they’re also really comfortable. I always carry them with me.”

Charlotte Olympia Cat Nap Eye Mask

“This beautiful and quirky eye mask is silky soft. Ideal when you’re trying to get some shuteye.”


“I got mine in Turkey. It was a great souvenir and now accompanies me on all my travels. It keeps me warm on cold flights and doesn’t take up too much room in my bag.”
