Navigating Tokyo with LUXE and LUXE Giveaway

Follow me on twitter as I navigate Tokyo with my LUXE Tokyo Guide #LUXETokyo
LUXE City Guides take travel to a whole new level, combining useful information, design, and snark in one compact package. In other words, this ain't your mother's guide book. The LUXE City Guides are for the chic at heart, who are obsessed with travel and appreciate a bit of GLAM. The fold out guides are small enough to fit in your pocket or small clutch but jam packed with information on accommodations, good eats, activities, shopping itineraries and useful tidbits.

Tokyo can be a tad bit overwhelming for first timers, just picture if New York and Las Vegas had a baby, millions of people and total sensory overload. I knew I would need to recruit some help in navigating the city and the LUXE  City Guide seemed like the perfect companion. LUXE gives readers access to the Tokyo beyond the surface, offering up concise descriptions of Godzilla's Playground's most amazing gems.

  1. Wow. Traveling the world and still have time to update your awesome blog. Would be thrilled to win any of them to be honest, although Tokyo guide would be fantastic as I'm hoping to get over there sometime this year during my time in South Korea. Hope you're having fun!

  2. Well-designed, useful information AND snark? Sounds like a winning combination!

  3. Ahhh I'm headed to Asia in 2 weeks this would be perfect! :)

  4. This would be perfect for my travels through Europe and Asia!

  5. I only spent a day in Paris, however, when I go back it would be nice to have a LUXE guide to navigate the City of Lights!

  6. I would love to go to Istanbul!! Its the only city that is considered to be on two continents: Europe and Asia!!
    I've been to Paris before but I felt a bit out of place. Its like a higher class NYC. Very classy. I'm a down to earth type.
    Tokyo-I would like to visit but it seems like it would a too expensive for me, the flight and costs of daily travel.
    I've been to Munich, Germany and Venice, Italy; I know they aren't the same as Berlin and Rome but I would like to travel to countries that I haven't been to yet.

  7. ALL OF THEM!!!... I guess I'd really love to hit up Singapore or Bangkok or use it to check out something new in Paris

  8. Any of these prizes would be amazing but I'd love to get the first one. It would give me inspiration for my Asia travels!
