The Conran Shop: Wallpaper city guides by Phaidon
For long-range planning or immediate virtual escapes, these guides to London, New York, Paris and Tokyo give you the inside scoop on where to shop, dine, browse and bargain in each of these unique urban meccas.
I was just in the Netherlands a few months ago. Even though I saw a lot and it felt like a whirlwind, I still wish I had this guide.
Montreal is on my Top 5 list of places to go in the next two years.
I'd love to go to Iceland but I'd have absolutely no clue what to do there other than drink myself into a stupor and go fishing which....well, could make for a really good time.
Lonely Planet guides are fine and dandy. They worked well for me in Korea, but I think I want a different perspective. I'm trying to plan a trip to Berlin so I think this will definitely come in handy.
