Ori is a travel magazine exploring where we come from, and where we’re going. We work with talented journalists to tell local stories on a global scale, inspiring travel through experience, rather than an algorithm.

Want to know more about the food scene in Bangkok? Our street food expert will take you there. Interested in Latin music? Dive into the reggaeton revolution with the Caribbean’s premier music correspondent. We focus on longform features, trip and gear intel, and useful information for armchair and aisle-seat travelers alike.

Ori is a community that explores, indulges and finds joy in life’s simple pleasures, sharing it all along the way. This road is a long one, and we’re just getting started. Where to next?

The name Ori (literally)

In Latin, our name distills to the rise or the beginning. In Japanese, “ori” means opportunity. In Hebrew, light. Transcending east to west, north to south, we like to think Ori is more than just a title—it's a combination of all three.
