The Monocle Travel Top Fifty 2007/8


Monocle's Travel Top Fifty, a collection of the editors' best first-hand experiences traveling, is the first in a series of special editions by the publication. The supplement includes tips on the mundane (an airport metro in Denmark) and the fabulous (a personal butler at Hong Kong's Grand Hyatt), as well as on more simple luxuries like a sublime terrace in Zürich. All their highly-subjective picks focus on the tiniest of details, like the Helvetica on Lufthansa's fuselage. It's an approach we appreciate and one that's in keeping with the high standard of journalism we expect from the mag.

To get the print version, you'll have to pick up a copy of this month's issue of Monocle, but the podcast runs it down over on Monocle's site.
