OFF TO RED SQUARE: Disputes over Syria and Edward Snowden have cooled relations between the U.S. and Russia, but the former Soviet Union is one of the new destinations being offered by Travel+Leisure Trips with Cox & Kings collection. Globetrotters shouldn’t expect to see Nancy Novogrod or any of the other editorial staffers in babushkas at the departure gate, but they can count on a few insider extras such as a backstage tour and evening performance at the Bolshoi Theater (which has seen its own drama in recent months) as well as a private showing of the Treasury Gallery at the Hermitage.

Those who aren’t inclined to try to see for themselves whether Snowden is in fact walking the streets of Moscow in disguise, can opt for the T+L Trips with Cox & Kings’ other new option — China. One of the perks they will find there is a tour of Hong Kong’s architectural landmarks with a feng shui master — in a Mercedes-Benz.
