Wallpaper* City Guides

I love the super stylish Phaidon City Guides -- small & easy to use. There are approx 60 in the collection: Amsterdam to Sao Paulo. Each city comes in a distinct color. I've given mini-collections away to friends as gifts who love them -- even if it's just to display on a book shelf.

  • Sofia Coppola's Lost in Translation is truly the indie romantic film of 2003.

I purchased two Lonely Planet city guides (Kyoto and Tokyo) for our recent trip to Japan, but I really prefer the "walking tours" in the Frommer's guidebooks. Sometimes it is just hard to figure out the gameplan when you want to visit a bunch of places in a general area, and they give you a better hint. Unfortunately, we did find that there aren't always street signs or clear enough details on the maps, so we generally followed the walking tour, but completely missed a few things too. I've followed them when I was in Barcelona though with much more success.

I really liked the layout and organization of the books. I wish though that there were more "walking guides" like in the Frommer's guidebooks. What was most helpful were the transportation hints that are listed with each sight. While most of the directions assume that you are starting at a central location (e.g. Tokyo Station), they definitely helped provide a hint that you can work along with additional subway/bus route guides to figure out your gameplan. I used the Kyoto book far more than the Tokyo one mainly because we saw more of the traditional sight-seeing sights there. In tokyo, we did more shopping and wandering.
