A good traveling guide for you to check out is Monocle’s collection of city guides. They have so far released 27 books in this series that gives you great inside info to cities like New York City, Kyoto, Tokyo, Los Angeles and Copenhagen. Their books are divided into sections of hotels, food and drink, retail, design, and architecture ++ But my favorite part of these guides are its maps over suggested neighborhood walks. The hoods are always great up and coming areas that aren’t any tourist traps and they will guide you to local gems of ice cream shops, bistros and great retail therapy. This is the kind of content you would not find anywhere else unless you knew a person living in this area. And that is why I love these books!
The books are published by Gestalten and they have made a little teaser video for the books, which is very representative for the content. Enjoy! If you want to explore more of the video teaser for the books you find them all here.
