Editor’s note

Just as we might give our homes an occasional makeover or (OK, not me!) adopt a new hairstyle, so this issue of Lonely Planet magazine includes some fresh approaches. For the second time in our decade-long history we’ve tweaked our dimensions and, for the first time, we’ve introduced the same paper all the way through. If you’re a regular reader with an eye for such details, you’ll notice this means the paper in our last section is a little smoother and less bulky, and that photos print on it more sharply. Above all, choosing one paper gives us flexibility – for instance, in this issue, that last section has become longer. We’ve often heard how much our readers love taking city breaks, on average at least three times a year, so our new section, The Urban Edit (p103), celebrates the excitement of exploring cities. Four tear-out guides cover topics as broad as culture, romance, eating out and making your budget stretch further. We have a recipe from a food truck, a shopping guide, encounters with artisans, revelations about a metro system, and a list of the weirdest museums. I hope you find it as intriguing to read as we did to make.
