You’re jet-lagged, you’re in an unfamiliar place, you’re covered in airplane grime from the hours of soaking up recycled air, and hunger plagues you like nothing you’ve ever felt before (who can really survive on tiny cups of soda and baby bags of peanuts?). Escaping the airport is your first order of business, followed by finding some real food, but the latter might turn out to be harder than you think.
Enter: The Purple Passport. A tried and true Godsend on a recent trip of mine to Los Angeles, The Purple Passport is a budding website where its local correspondents from various cities around the world report on only the best spots and categorize them based on several criteria (price, location, style), which means no tedious sifting through good and bad reviews to find a yummy place to eat. Everything on The Purple Passport is a winner. Not only do they provide expert suggestions from locals on restaurants, but also hotels, shopping, attractions, spas and nightlife, which are all similarly categorized.
Their experts stop at nothing to make certain that you are choosing the perfect vacation visit for you. They provide you with all the need-to-know tidbits, but also other helpful hints like what to wear, whom to go there with and other nearby recommendations if what you chose turns out not to be exactly what you’re jonesing for. Currently The Purple Passport has suggestions for Los Angeles, Palm Beach, Fl., London and Beijing, but many other big city destinations are yet to come, like New York, Miami, Paris, Abu Dhabi and more.
If your summer travels take you someplace where The Purple Passport travels too, be sure to check them out for some fail-proof suggestions and let us know what you think!
