Toronto
Heading to Toronto, but want to do more than visit the CN Tower and order poutine? Allow The HUNT to help you get to know The Six the way the locals do.

The Hunt
Bangkok
The heart of the city is a labyrinth that draws together the essence of everything sacred and profane: gilded temple spires, gleaming shopping malls and ornate skyscrapers stand alongside tented noodle stands, blanket-on-the-pavement palm readers and, of course, those infamous bars.

But for all its glitz and hubbub, Bangkok never loses sight of its essential Thai-ness. Outside office buildings, employees stop to offer flowers, incense and prayers to roofed spirit shrines; wheeled carts at curbsides hawk herbal remedies alongside espresso slingers and trendy fashion booths created by guerrilla designers. As varied as it is vast, it’s impossible to be bored in Bangkok.
The Hunt

The Hunt
Boston
Known for its role in early American history, top-notch universities, strong accent and sports teams, Boston has a long, loud reputation. But it’s much more than colonial tours, college kids and Red Sox fans. Boston is a beautiful city – think cobblestone streets lined with brownstones, as well as soaring skyscrapers – with a thriving food scene and so many nightlife options that you won’t be in bed before 2am. We’ve curated the most exciting spots this city has to offer, from boutiques on posh Newbury Street as well as in funky Jamaica Plain, to the swankiest places to sip cocktails, and the restaurants locals flock to for lobstah and chowdah.

The Hunt
Paris
Paris is known as a romantic city for lovers, but it’s really for any and all bon vivants seeking epicurean treats, art and architecture, artisanal craftsmanship and everything in between. We’ve mapped out and included the places that make Paris truly vibrant, from swanky wine bars to quaint patisseries, innovative artists’ studios to classic perfumeries, bustling markets to luxurious outdoor spots.
The Hunt
New Orleans
New Orleans has a big reputation. Known for the partying on raucous Bourbon Street, the lavish parades of Mardis Gras and as a haunted city chock full of ghosts. We’ve curated the most exciting spots this city has to offer from costume shops to outdoor oases, the most creative cocktail bars far from the tourists on Bourbon Street and the live music venues that can’t be missed.
The Hunt
New York City
There’s no other city in the world quite like New York. Fact. The must-see list is mind boggling, and more than a little likely to induce a serious case of FOMO. From the sceney hipster enclaves of Brooklyn to the cobblestone streets in Greenwich Village that still echo the Beat generation, there’s something about the chaotic, anything goes melting-pot that is NYC. This quick-change artist is capable of transforming overnight, but don’t worry – we’re here to show you our time-tested stalwarts, the new up-and-comers, and everything in between.
The Hunt
Hong Kong
Hong Kong is where remnants of tradition and old-world colonialism collides with Chinese modernity at breakneck speed. They say a New York minute is a Hong Kong second, and it certainly feels that way in the ‘Fragrant Harbor’. Soaring mountains cascade down into one of the world’s most densely populated cities, packed with hole-in-the-wall noodle shops, luxury hotels, hedonistic nightclubs, and world-class shopping. But you’ve also got outer lying villages where time has stood still for centuries, and secluded hiking trails with nary a soul to be seen. These contrasts only heighten HK’s intrigue.
The Hunt
Austin
‘Hunting’ in this Texan city is effortless: there are always fantastic bands lighting up the night, or a brand new restaurant luring you in by the nostrils. So don your finest cowboy hat and drop into an art gallery/yoga studio for a stretch and some culture, enjoy the finest New American cuisine, strum on a vintage guitar at a classic musicians’ mecca, and soak up the sun with a dip in the most glorious springs and creeks.
The Hunt
Movember Series
Gatehouse Publishing and The HUNT Guides are proud to put down our razors this month along with millions of other men around the world in support of the Movember Foundation.

You can find all of these guides in businesses around the world and also as free downloads on this website. If you’d like to get involved with the Movember Foundation, please visit movember.com … ‘stache on Mo bros.
The Hunt
Frankfurt
Approach Frankfurt by car or by train and, still miles away, the skyline will greet you, small and toy-like, a movie-set painted on the horizon. In the moment that I see it, I feel something that I have never felt for another city, and the sight of the skyline is a welcome home. She is a city that does not reveal herself quickly. Consider this guide then as a few whispered secrets from someone who has been on the hunt here for years and who in the chase, fell in love with this enigmatic city and found herself, finally, home.
The Hunt
London
We thought we knew this city inside and out, and then we worked on this book. What unfurled was a journey of discovery and an all-encompassing appreciation for a city oozing with independent creative talents, quirky English experiences, and the rich tapestry of pretty much every nationality in existence.
The Hunt
San Francisco
Though we don't like to play favorites, we do love working on this particular title. Wandering around San Francisco and the East Bay on a warm, sun-filled day, where everything seems touched by gold and the bay sparkles – there's nowhere else like it. It's on these days that even when we’re circling for a parking spot for the 15th time, our love for the city stays intact.
The Hunt
Singapore
Singapore seems to be having a moment. Though you may have heard of its strict reputation, this city-state is much more than a safe, clean Southeast Asian haven – it’s a rich melting pot that is friendly, vibrant and delightfully multi-faceted. The little red dot has prospered over the years and in addition to becoming a major international player in the business world, it’s become well-known for its incredible international cuisine, delightful shopping experiences, stunning architecture and burgeoning art scene. A cosmopolitan metropolis, Singapore is not a destination to be missed.
