Air B&B is my choice of stay nowadays because you get the insiders knowledge into the area your staying in. This helps when you travel to Copenhagen where every person lives in a stylish apartment, hangs out in cool bars and dines in the new eatery that's opened 5 minutes a go. But not every city has the same collective of savvy inhabitants. To add to their collection of curated lifestyle, Monocle have fairly recently launched their own series of insight travel guides, shining the light on the places to pop your head into if you're jetting off to New York or London.
Neighbourhood walks, independent retail, art galleries, fitness suits and hotel bars are all reviewed. I've grown up in London since the age of 7 but i'll still be reading up on the secret pockets of London i know i've missed.
