Compiled by the magazine's travel experts, and by the extraordinary network of international correspondents, the guides are truly the insider's guide to each featured city. Both people who live there, as well as the well-travelled editorial team of Wallpaper*, have put their heads together to come up with a fascinating, efficient guide that keeps the hip, urban traveler with his/her finger on the pulse. The Wallpaper* City Guides are especially useful for the weekend tourist, 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 a weekend, the guides even go as far as to tell you what you could see for a day-trip outside the city. The City Guides are being published as Wallpaper* magazine celebrates tis 10th anniversary. For 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 to each of the 20 cities to be published in September 2006.
Wallpaper* City Guides are compiled by the magazine s travel experts, both by in-house editors, and correspondents who actually live in the highlighted cities, providing up-to-the-minute information.
