1. Don’t skimp on maps

Who said that toting around with a physical map makes you look like a silly tourist?

The Red Maps are a series of highly informative stylish single foldable city guides materials highlighting city must-sees like museums, restaurants and architecture.

The effortlessly cool city guides are available for Florence, Berlin, London, Paris and Barcelona and New York City.

2. Travel inspired cocktails

A Mayfair bar in London called Mr Fogg’s has created a travel-inspired cocktail menu called ‘Around the World in 80 Cocktails’ based on Jules Verne’s popular novel Around the World in 80 Days.

The exotic bar will immediately transform you back in time with its elegant and travel inspired interior such as global maps showcasing exotic destinations.

Kick back in a leather chair with a Newfoundland, Canada cocktail, containing “Hennessy Fine de Cognac, Luxardo Maraschino liqueur, chocolate bitter, gomme syrup, cocoa tea blend and mascarpone foam.”

Cheers!

 

3. Anti-Tech Hotel Rooms

The best way to get a good night’s sleep is to unplug and the German spa hotel ‘Villa Stephanie’ will let you do just that.

By blocking 96% of all wireless and mobile signals to their rooms this spa hotel prides itself on being a place where their guests can truly relax and unplug.

To be completely cut off from your mobile phone might not appeal to everyone but for those who are looking for a digital detox this place is the answer.

 

4. Day-to-Night Bridal Package

Bride to be?

W Hotel in New York is offering a day-to-night bridal package for the modern bride who wants to please both her grandmother and her girlfriends.

The luxury package includes celebrations from morning to night including a private bar experience and custom cupcakes infused with booze (watch out granny).

The bridal party will also be able to enjoy a brunch after a long night of celebrations and the guest will be able to rest their heads in a sleeping arrangement for a group of friends.

However this package doesn’t come cheap and only applies to brides who have a spare $20,000.

 

5. Connect with Local Party-Goers

The website Zoola Fix will link you up with well-connected local party-goers who can guide you through the city’s nightlife for a small fee.

Put your dancing shoes on and book and pay for an authentic night out with a ‘fixer’ of your choice.

How much does it cost?

Priced from GBP 70, the evenings include services such as ordering cabs and waiting in line for drinks.
