LUXE City Guides are the consummately stylish pocket travel guides packed with astute, opinionated information for the busy and sophisticated visitor. LUXE City Guides are original, fun, engaging, up to date, and highly opinionated. Founded 9 years ago, they offer 33 cities in their range, spanning Asia, Europe and the USA. They are famed for eschewing the usual padding of pointless photographs and verbose descriptions. LUXE City Guides cut to the jugular, listing hundreds of destinations in the distinctive, hyper-opinionated LUXE style of short, sharp and to the point reviews. Their unique concertina format is easy to use, and is so lightweight. They are small and discreet enough to fit in your shirt pocket or clutch and are packed with only the latest and greatest that each destination has to offer. With LUXE you’re not a tourist, you’re a visitor. It’s a big difference.
LUXE’s listings are distilled from the favourite and secret places of over twenty carefully selected style contributors who actually live in each city. From their recommendations, LUXE features boutique hotels, B&B’s, restaurants, clubs, bars and spas, services, shops and city secrets that most visitors would simply never find. And we don’t feature the most expensive, but root out the best of the best. Each guide is carefully researched and collated by a resident city editor, and as if that weren’t enough, each city is then visited by an in house Editor to ensure that LUXE’s consistently high standard is maintained throughout the series. No other guide series does this. In the notoriously fickle worlds of fashion, food and entertainment, other guides are hopelessly out of date even by the time they reach the bookstore shelf.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 updated every year. Whether you have a few hours or a few days, LUXE really is all you need. The LUXE City Guides are not only a travel companion; they’re a lifestyle necessity.
For smart and savvy travellers LUXE City Guides has gone mobile. More than 20 cities are now available in mobile editions for iPhone, HTC and Nokia handsets. Each app comes with a year of free updates sent directly to your mobile.
