With sharp, sassy signature speed reads and honest, opinionated insider advice, LUXE City Guides burst onto the scene in 2004 and forever changed the way that the international jet-set travelled. A decade and three million print copies later, the globetrotters’ go-to is set to do it all over again, this time digitally with the launch of the fabulous, functional LUXE mobile guides.
The new LUXE mobile apps feature expanded intel to 25 of the world’s hottest cities, and guides are updated monthly by savvy resident editors, ensuring up-to-the-minute recommendations.
Life’s too short for a bad holiday, so all LUXE content is meticulously curated, featuring only the best of the best places to eat, drink, shop, sightsee, spa and sleep – all handpicked by our LUXE-life-living Resident Editors. And because getaways never seem quite long enough, LUXE reviews are composed as quick-fire reads, so you can keep your head up enjoying the view, not fixed on a screen with square eyes scrolling.
Short on time, or simply not sure where to start? Tap straight into the “LUXE Day” itinerary, carefully handpicked for a perfect day in each destination. Or, self-starters can use the itinerary builder function to plan their own excursions in the city.
Detailed maps use geo-settings to pin-point not only your location but also the plum places you want to visit, with easy directions to the nearest LUXE approved hotspot, while “Around Me” and augmented reality features unlock places of interest in your immediate environment.
Clickable websites and touch-call phone numbers make it a breeze to book that blissful spa day or get your knees under the top table at special destination diners. Reservations secured, handy extras like a currency converter and subway maps will have you navigating the city like a local.
Best of all, the app is 100 percent usable offline. Download in advance and you won’t need a WiFi connection to browse the LUXE list, or pay exorbitant roaming fees to access essential info when you’re on the ground and need it the most.
