Simon Westcott, co-founder of our Asia Pacific Mr & Mrs Smith team.

‘Our books take the guesswork out of booking somewhere best in class. We think what Mr & Mrs Smith does better than any other travel guide in the world is identify the wow-factor – that boutique-travel something special – a take-your-breath away location, incredible food and wine, unique spa treatments or simply the old-world charm of a remote and beautifully restored homestead.’

  1. Exciting! Are you going to be using a different approach to the guidebook’s content to differentiate yourself from the other guidebooks out there?
