LUXE City Guides

Anyone with a smart phone can track down a Michelin-star restaurant in Paris or point you in the direction of the Forbidden City. But this slim, deeply researched line of guidebooks—don’t expect maps, illustrations, or any of the otherwise Google-able info you’d find stuffed in fatter versions—specializes in the type of locales known only to the natives. It’s the kind of unabashedly opinionated editorial advice that will send you happily flying solo. And it’s executed with so much brevity and class that the guides can fit comfortably into a pocket or your carry-on.

MUST HAVE for the Globe Trotter!!!

I lived abroad in Asia for over 2 years and I made sure to pick one of these up for every city I visited.. From Beijing to Bangkok, these never lead me astray!!! Obviously they are compact, but a must have for the traveller who enjoys the finer things!!

Rich with information- and bad attitude
Purchased

I like the idea of this guide- I purchased the London and Paris guides to help plan our honeymoon- but I found the writing to be very condescending. A complete turn-off! Even if it does have helpful information, I'm much less likely to even open one again because no one likes to be talked down to when trying to plan a relaxing vacation!

Great when off the grid

Used this little gem for a trip to Laos. Afraid of turning on my phone in fear of data charges, this gem was great at directing me to spots all around. Durability is here as well as it folds easily and often.

The pocket size really helped me be able to take this with me everywhere. Had some great finds that I never would have visited without this guide.

No immediate use

My copy was for Chicago, so it's seems only useful if I traveled to Chicago. It does seem well detailed and the researched appeared well done.

Concise and fits in your pocket

Great way to learn about the not so "mainstream" hot spots in other countries. I plan to use it when I visit the city I have!

Really neat!

This is a very handy map and can help you find your way around the city! I would love to have more of the maps to travel with everywhere I go!
