Bangkok is a city that welcomes visitors but is complex in both history and layout. There’s a reason that people come back time and time again: this is not a place you can fully comprehend with just one trip. The Thai capital is both socially tolerant and deeply conservative; its businesses are often friendly but difficult to find. It’s a city where both an old monarchy and a young creative class find common ground. In helping you navigate Bangkok’s streets, Monocle will show you a city where business and design is thriving. Hidden in plain sight are great parks for running, architectural masterpieces designed by Thai firms, and hidden bars playing music you've never heard before. And, of course, Monocle will tell you where to head for the city’s famous street food, spa treatments, and hotels for both business and leisure (or a mix of the two). Even if you have been to Bangkok before, you’re about to find out why there’s so much more to discover.

Madrid is a changed city. The recent metamorphosis has been fuelled by the economic crisis and led by a new generation of determined Madrileños who have transformed the Spanish capital for the better. Tradition and modernity thrive side by side: marvel at the centuries-old masterpieces inside the Prado one moment and enjoy sumptuous morsels cooked up by a new wave of intrepid chefs the next. After sating your appetite, be sure to save enough energy for nocturnal frolics in the endless mix of bars, theatres, and clubs. In fact, the native penchant for a good time is such an irrefutable character trait that Monocle challenges you not to be affected by the contagiously cheerful spirit you’ll encounter. The city has thrown off the shackles of immovable tradition; what was once a buttoned-down bastion of conservatism has become Spain’s unabashed centre of the avant-garde. Enjoy a melting pot of talent, taste, and tenacity—all courtesy of fun-loving and welcoming residents.
