Read More About This Book

Monocle reports from around the globe in print, on radio, and online. As its editors and correspondents dart from city to city, they get to know the best places to rest their heads, stretch their limbs, and kick back with a contact in a hard-to-find cocktail bar. That information is now available in Monocle’s Travel Guide Series: a line-up of titles that speaks to you in an informed but informal way about everything from architecture to art, late-night bars to early-morning markets.

London: The Monocle Travel Guide Series

Vast and sprawling, a tangle of roads and lanes, a muddle of rising and falling neighborhoods: London can be a big beast to tame, even for the people who get to call it home. The Monocle Travel Guide to London is a celebration of all the things that the Monocle team loves above this mighty metropolis. It’s a guide to the bars, shops, restaurants, music venues, and museums that they think should edge their way on to your itinerary. 

New York: The Monocle Travel Guide Series

Monocle has had a bureau in New York since its launch in 2007 and it has a shop in the city too. This has made the Monocle team passionate about the place and its ambitions. This book is a celebration of all that they know and love about New York and it should be used to take you beyond the obvious spots (although who wouldn’t want to hit the museum biggies). New York can easily live up to its movie-star good looks but let it be a city that surprises you, too—in a good way.

Tokyo: The Monocle Travel Guide Series

It would take a lifetime to get to know every facet of Tokyo—so large that it spreads as far as the eye can see. But look closely and you will find a city of exceptional charm and breathtaking efficiency. The Japanese capital is a fascinating tangle of opposites: the latest technology and traditional arts; crowded stations and quiet backstreets; concrete highways and green parks. Yet it all works like a dream.

Hong Kong: The Monocle Travel Guide Series

Vertigo-inducing skyscrapers that cling to mountainous slopes and busy fishing villages that proudly hold on to their cultural heritage: Hong Kong is more diverse than you’d imagine. The Monocle Travel GUide to Hong Kong is a procession through Hong Kong’s outposts of good food, design, retail, and more.

Madrid: The Monocle Travel Guide Series

Madrid is a changed city. The recent metamorphosis has been fuelled by the economic crisis and led by a new generation of determined Madrileños who have transformed the Spanish capital for the better. Tradition and modernity thrive side by side: marvel at the centuries-old masterpieces inside the Prado one moment and enjoy sumptuous morsels cooked up by a new wave of intrepid chefs the next.

Bangkok: The Monocle Travel Guide Series

Bangkok is a city that welcomes visitors but is complex in both history and layout. There’s a reason that people come back time and time again: this is not a place you can fully comprehend with just one trip. The Thai capital is both socially tolerant and deeply conservative; its businesses are often friendly but difficult to find. It’s a city where both an old monarchy and a young creative class find common ground.

Istanbul: The Monocle Travel Guide Series

On first impression, Istanbul can seem a touch demure. But beneath its inimitable skyline is a teeming, triumphant metropolis with imperial history, intrigue, and entrepreneurial zeal written into its streets. It’s a city constantly being remade and reimagined, and the resulting sense of opportunity and vigor is palpable.

Miami: The Monocle Travel Guide Series

Miami has a lot going for it: its shoreline, year-round warm weather, and diverse population. So don’t just get caught in the bubble of fun but distracting Miami Beach. This guide will help you explore the city’s numerous neighborhoods—from Little Havana and Coral Gables to the Design District—and discover its full potential.
