With a normal city guide there's always an element of risk. Who hasn't trekked across Paris only to discover that the brasserie with the best steak-frites in the city has turned into a McDo's in the six months since your guide was published? (And you didn't spend three hours on the metro for a Big Mac with cheese.) All of which makes the Gogoparis guides such an inspired idea.
Rather than publishing a guide in a traditional book form, the Gogo guide is a downloadable PDF that is updated every two months so it can bring you the latest in bar openings, exhibitions, new stores and even tells you which of your favourite bands happen to be in town. At 10 Euros a pop it's cheaper than a traditional guide (which, let's face it, often doesn't make it past one use) and also won't take up nearly so much room in your knapsack.
News just in: Gogo guides will be launching a London guide in September, as well as a handy iPhone app. Get the Paris guide now at www.gogoparis.com
