Wallpaper* City Guides not only suggest where to stay, eat, and drink, but what the tourist passionate about design might want to see, whether he/she has a week or 24 hours in the city. Featured are up and coming areas, landmark buildings in an 'Architour', design centres, and the best shops to buy items unique to that city. Wallpaper* City Guides present travellers with a fast-track ticket to the chosen location. The edited guides offer the best, most exciting, and the most beautiful of that particular city. As well as looking beautiful, the guides are expertly designed with function as a priority, and have tabbed sections so that readers can easily find the information they are looking for. The guides include rate and currency information, maps and a colour-coding system to help you navigate the different parts of the city. They are the ultimate combination of form and function.
Wallpaper* City Guides are compiled by the magazine's travel experts, both by in-house editors, and correspondents who live in the highlighted cities, and provide up-to-the-minute information.
Compiled by the magazine's travel experts and their extraordinary network of international correspondents, the guides are truly the insider's guide to each featured city. Both people who live there and the well-travelled editorial team of Wallpaper* have put their heads together to come up with a fascinating, efficient guide for the hip, urban traveller with his/her finger on the pulse. The Wallpaper* City Guides are especially useful for the weekend visitor and the business traveller. If you only have 24 hours to discover a city, each guide offers an exact hour-to-hour plan of what to see, eat, and purchase. For those travelling for more than a weekend, the guides even tell you what you could see for a day-trip outside the city. The first titles in the City Guides series were published in Fall 2006 as Wallpaper* magazine celebrated its 10th anniversary. For more than a decade, Wallpaper* has been the first to uncover and present enticingly the best in new design and urban travel spots from across the globe. The City Guides are the perfect way to present a decade of experience in one precisely edited guide.
