Before going on a trip outside the Philippines I always make it a point to do extensive research on where to go, what to do, what to eat and buy especially when it comes to menswear. Unfortunately, it’s not a walk in the park when the country or city you’re visiting isn’t written about much in English. And even then most information is limited to more touristy activities which I’d rather avoid altogether. Enter LUXE City Guides – a series of city guides for people with discerning tastes. I was given the opportunity to take a closer look at these guides and they sent me one for Seoul and another for Hong Kong & Macau. Flipping through the pages one can tell that each guide is curated by those in the know. Those who appreciate the finer things in life will love the extensive hotel, restaurant, shopping and activity recommendations that these guides have to offer.
Those into menswear will find LUXE City Guides’ recommendations very useful. Pouring over the pages of its Hong Kong and Macau guide I couldn’t believe I still missed some boutiques. My extensive online research and conversations with friends simply can’t compare to those who actually live in the city and know its ins and outs. For those looking to buy a new pair of shoes, have a bespoke suit made or a unique leather accessory would do well to purchase these guides that let you skip the mass luxury labels and point you towards the better stuff. I’ve always believed that if you’re going to spend a significant amount of money you might as well do it right and LUXE City Guides will make sure you do just that.
LUXE City Guides are available at Fully Booked outlets.
