Oversized glossy magazines contain all sorts of exotic travel nuggets, but even if you bought one, you'd never get past the ads for luxury bras. Get niche travel info without papercuts or luxury erections, from Fabsearch.
Fabsearch pulls unavailable-on-the-internet hotel and restaurant info from otherwise unbearable publications, then distills it into quick hitting, no-fluff write-ups -- like Zagat, only not "braying" and "putting a ton of nonsense in quotes". Most of the content's derived from chick supermags like Elle, Vogue, and Town and Country -- a rag that makes the minivan seem manly. But these sources regularly yield surprisingly awesome tips, e.g.: Creole cuisine in Cuba, mountainside lodging in Slovenia, even a "luxury camp" in Antarctica ("luxury" = an attractive 3-to-1 people-to-bear ratio).
For destinations their publications don't cover, Fabsearch augments their listings via a network of "friends" -- who must be intrepid indeed to unearth destinations that've escaped even the lacey, demi-cupped pages of British Harper's Bazaar.
