Weekend trips to any city, from São Paulo to Seoul to Sydney, can often be daunting, with too much to do and too little time. Enter 36 Hours World, a roundup of 150 cities across six continents, each tailored for a memorable and feasible 36-hour stay. Gathered from the eponymous New York Times column, this updated edition is dedicated entirely to cities: capital, coastal, cosmopolitan, and everything in between, with 26 new stories not published in previous volumes.

Whether it’s a comedy club in downtown Chicago, a long-tail boat tour on Bangkok’s Chao Phraya River, or a cable car ride up to Dubrovnik’s Mount Srd, the must-know facts and inspiration can all be found in this A-to-Z collection of urban adventures.
