Description: These compact and fact-filled guides to major cities around the world are beautiful and easy to use. With more than 600 color photographs -- more than any other guide in this size -- these books combine the inside information of an Access or Gault-Millau guide, the practical information of a Michelin or Rough Guide - about where to stay and eat and what to see -- in a seductive highly portable volume.

Each guide is divided into seven sections with brief and lively descriptions for each entry: "Arriving and Getting Around" points up the way of getting into a city and then once you are there, the most efficient local transportation; 55 entries in "Where to Stay" cover a wide range of hotels with the necessary information about price and accomodation; 64 restaurants are listed in "Where to Eat"; jazz clubs, theater, night clubs, and other after-hour places are among the 44 entries in "After Dark"; 76 museums, monuments, and architectural sites are included in "What to See"; "Further Afield" takes you on 22 excursions out of the city but in the vicinity; "Browsing and Shopping" which guides you to 65 specialty and department stores. In the map section in the back, in addition to bus and subway maps, k are 7 double-page spreads of the city area by area with dots corresponding to all the entries in the guidebook.

This guide will take you to such luxurious hotels as the Park Hyatt or the Palace Hotel, opposite the Imperial Palace to the more modest Tokyo International Youth Hostel; show you unusual places to eat like Trattoria Valdarno with its excellent Tuscan cuisine, Jembatan Merah which specializes in such Indonesian delicacies as sheep hoof soup or Bistro Sanno for the French classics;to such sights as the Bunka Gakuen Costume Museum with its fantastic clothes dating from the Edo period or the Watari-um Museum designed by Mario Botta -- and partly interactive -- devoted to Japanese and international avant-garde art.

Each Guide takes you fearlessly and efficiently into the heart and culture of the city. Smart, incisive, sharp and sleek, these guides are as practical as they are beautiful.
