The definitive travel guides that make you feel like a local wherever you go. Monoclemagazine covers the world with its network of bureaus (New York, Toronto, Zurich, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Tokyo, Singapore), its more than 30 dedicated correspondents based from Beirut to Bogota, Sao Paulo to Stolkholm, and its team of on-the-road reporters based out of its headquarters in London. Monocle-the magazine that covers urbanism and the city design like no other-knows about the hidden gems in all the great cities. It also knows where to take an ambassador for breakfast, an on-the-go businessman for a late night cocktail, or where to get an astute concierge at ungodly hours. Its deep understanding of cities and all they have to offer has been compiled in the new Monocle Travel Guides. Launching this spring with editions for London and Tokyo, followed by New York and Hong Kong, these beautiful books reveal the Monocle team's favorite places, from the ideal route for an early morning run to the best spots for independent retail. Aimed at people who do not want to be tourists but rather feel like locals when they travel, these are books for those who want to mix the classic with the contemporary, want to get beyond the cliches, and know they can get a feel for a city even if they only have a few days. And they are full of surprises and quirks: the books will guide you to a grand hotel but also to a cozy two-star, and will leave you drinking in a local corner bar or being served by a great waiter who knows his craft-while being wary of pushing you into the newest, hippest, soulless bar. Created by the Monocle design team, these authoritative guides will be trim enough to drop into your pocket and wise enough to stay by your side throughout your travels.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very nice Bought this book in preparation for going to visit some friends in London. Excited about the overall look of the book and the layout. Well designed book, glad to see some visuals and colour to it along with short text paragraphs keep it a light read

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Insightful and Interesting I can't wait to put this guide book to the test when I go to London in a few months. I'm definitely very intrigued by the markets, shopping and cultural recommendations. The restaurants and hotels they recommend seem VERY $$$$... The impression I get is that it's not necessarily the most ideal guidebook if you are travelling on a tight budget but definitely highlights what seem to be some cool places to check out and what "locals" do.
