Chicest travelers' gift idea: Luxe's Chinese New Year box set
Red velvet cover, Chinese zodiac symbols -- dragon and snake -- and a Chinese seal for longevity on the back, Luxe City Guides' Chinese New Year box set cannot be more Chinese-esque.
Hong Kong-based Luxe City Guides has launched an 'Asian Grand Tour Box' to usher in the upcoming Year of the Snake.
The box features eight of their pocket-size guides to these Asian destinations -- Bali, Bangkok, Beijing, Hanoi, Hong Kong, Shanghai, Singapore and Tokyo.
Since its launch a decade ago, Luxe City Guides have proved extremely popular, selling over one million copies, with travelers liking the short, snappy, no-frills take on destinations or even their home town.
Without illustrations and maps, the guides only include hand-picked hotels and restaurants as well as sightseeing and shopping suggestions.
The company covers over 30 destinations currently.
Asian Grand Tour Box is available online for US$75.
