Never one to shy away from researching my next travel destination, I look forward to learning all about the hottest places to visit, where to shop, where to stay, what to eat, etc. LUXE City Guides provides a very unique, witty, and fun read in every single one of their travel destination guides. Completely entertaining, I found myself laughing out loud numerous times.
Small and compact, these babies pack a punch.
Take a quick read from LUXE City Guides’ website, you’ll see why I adore them:
For seven years LUXE City Guides has quietly changed the face of travel guides, starting from scratch we re-thought the whole concept of why and how we all travel, of what we need when we get there and most importantly, what we don’t. LUXE is now famous for its super-svelte format, and its take no prisoners attitude, avoiding all the padding, photos, graphics and blah of other guides and getting straight to the meat. The result – ultra-smart travel companions stacked with priceless information for the discerning, value-conscious and busy traveller.
In the notoriously fickle worlds of fashion, food and entertainment other guides are hopelessly out of date even by the time they reach the bookstore shelf. LUXE City Guides are not only updated each year, but come with monthly online updates. So by the time you get to your destination, all you need do is relax, because if it’s not in LUXE, you’re not missing anything. Hyper-opinionated, irreverent, bright and fun to read, whether you have a few hours or a few days, LUXE really is all you need. Oh, and you’ll never hear us refer to our readers as tourists. With LUXE you’re a visitor. It’s a big difference.
LUXE City Guides. Fasten your seatbelt.
With 31 cities in their range covering Asia, America and Europe, each guide is updated yearly with new editions, so you know you are getting the latest and greatest juicy tidbits of info!
To add a cherry on top, they now also offer mobile guides. Yes – they really are a force to be reckoned with.
Want to avoid the touristy celeb-spotting sites and dine where the city’s stylish residents really hang out in Los Angeles? Want perfect cocktails in funky speakeasies in New York? Or perhaps you want to be personally guided through Barcelona’s famous Gaudi architecture by an expert? LUXE City Guides Mobile has got it covered.
With 20 destinations to choose from, they are available for a multitude of handsets including the iPhone, BlackBerry, Sony Ericsson, Nokia and HTC. Additionally, each comes with a year of free updates sent directly to your mobile. A self-updating guide? I know – how easy and simple can they make it?
One of my other favorite offerings are their travel box sets. Totally customizable, you can choose the color of the box, and which of the 31 titles you want to include in it! I have to admit that I love the look of the box set so much, I would love to just put it on my shelf to admire.
With four different colors and sizes to choose from, these boxes are a perfect gift for the jet-setter in your life. Or, you can treat yourself – like I want to do!
