Escape from reality: What holidaymakers don't know about their destinations

The summer 2018 Index on Censorship magazine takes you on holiday, just a different kind of holiday. Visit Malta with top Maltese editor Caroline Muscat. This favourite Mediterranean destination is where a leading journalist, Daphne Caruana Galizia, was brutally murdered approximately 100 metres away from her home back in October. In Baja California Sur, tourists take snaps of themselves next to whales, their lenses rarely taking snaps of another reality - the huge drug war raging in the Mexican state that has made it an incredibly dangerous place to live, as Stephen Woodman explores. The Philippines definitely wins awards for its stunning beaches, just not for its press freedom. Maria Ressa, CEO of Rappler, and Miriam Grace A Go, the site's news editor, explain the harassment they have faced and why they won't be silenced. And bestselling authors Ian Rankin and Victoria Hislop show you uglier sides to the tourist hotspots that are the backdrops of their books. Elsewhere in the magazine "Vietnam's Lady Gaga", Mai Khoi, talks to Index about the dangers she faces for promoting democracy in the country, music journalist Jon Savage looks back at the bans that have greeted new music trends, and award-winning short story writer Jonathan Tel writes an exclusive story for Index about facial recognition.
