The Shortlist Guide series from Time Out explores a range of international destinations in a handy, pocket-sized format designed to introduce visitors to the best nightlife, entertainment and local attractions in the city. Expert local writers provide an encyclopaedic knowledge of each city, ensuring that the guides have won a reputation for their accuracy and reliability.
Each guide opens with a ‘Don’t Miss’ section profiling recommendations by the author and accompanied by detailed commentary. An Itineraries chapter provides inspiration for travellers with a series of thematic walks around the city. The main section explores the city by region, with each area divided into sights and museums, eating and drinking, shopping, nightlife and arts and leisure. Contact details, addresses, opening times and prices for each establishment are also given where relevant.
A further section on Essentials provides listings of hotels by area, accompanied by a description and with details of opening times, addresses, directions and outline room prices. Further information on getting to the city and around is also provided. There is also a Resources index, with practical guidance on accidents and emergencies, credit card loss, customs, dental emergencies, disabled visitors, embassies and consulates, left luggage, opening hours, smoking, telephones, tickets, visas and what’s on where.
