Monocle Travel Guides
The Monocle Travel Guide series reveals our favourite places in each city we cover, from the ideal route for an early-morning run to the best spots for independent retail. Full of surprises and quirks, they also feature detailed design and architecture pages, neighbourhood walks to get you away from the crowds and our favourite places to eat everything be it tasty fast food or something truly celebratory.
The Tokyo guide is written by our bureau team in the city who have been covering the metropolis since Monocle began in 2007. In this 148-page hardback they reveal the places that they have got to know and love and show you why Tokyo is the friendliest big city in the world. It’s a guide book that will lead you to the best in culture and new architecture – and a few fun nights out too.
Our London guide will take you on a journey around the sprawling metropolis that we call home, taking you away from the obvious and into the hidden. This is for those who want to make the most of their stay, feeling like a resident rather than a tourist.
Paris is one of the most visited cities in the world so there’s a good chance you’ve already been; regardless, we guarantee this fully-illustrated, 148-page hardback guide will show that there’s plenty more to discover.
This is a city in perpetual flux and its ability to reinvent itself can be attributed to its complex history. Today there’s a seductive allure to the German capital’s dynamism and willingness to create anew. Be it a luxury hotel in an old bathhouse, experimental artwork in a former margarine factory or an ever-evolving roster of musicians and designers, the city thrums with diversity and ingenuity. Berlin is about more than nightclubs and hammering hangovers – although a night on the tiles here still rarely disappoints. We guarantee that this guide will show that there’s plenty more to discover.
The rumours are true: Denmark’s capital really is filled with design-savvy people with chic homes who are only a quick pedal from some of the world’s finest restaurants and creative retail shops. But there’s much more than this to enchant visitors. A recent building boom has filled the skyline with innovative and visually bamoston boozling residential and civic structures, the hotel industry is heating up and, thanks to the infamously sky-high taxes, the well-funded cultural scene is kicking. So saddle up: the Monocle Travel Guide to Copenhagen is on hand to take you for a ride through the city's many and varied delights.
