What’s ‘The One Thing’ you need to see, do or taste in your favourite cities?

Charley Boorman (of Long Way Round fame) is bold enough to offer his own recommendations. The actor has teamed up with American Express to suggest ‘The One Thing‘ you should do when you visit Paris, Amsterdam, Madrid, and Edinburgh. Think you know these cities well? His recommendations are surprisingly savvy and inventive. You can watch him enjoy unique adventures from a visit to Amsterdam’s smallest microbrewery (Brouwerij de Prael) to a private CV tour of Paris. His vodcasts are worthwhile, whether you’re a seasoned globetrotter or looking for a fresh adventure nearby.

  1. i loved these short videos, genius and charlie boorman is the perfect front man.

    in sydney i love going to the paddington markets on a saturday for some fab finds. in tokyo its sushi at the tsukiji fish market. in edinburgh its catching a show at the finge festival.

  2. I think my recommendations would so often be the obvious! Charley Borman is great, I really enjoyed the long way down documentary and book – I guess he’s a seasoned traveler now so knows what he’s talking about.

  3. I loved Charley in The Long Way Round – I’m sure he appreciates a little luxury after that ordeal. I think that there’s one definitive thing to do in each city – whenever my friends stay at hotels in Cambridge, I recommend that they go punting down the River Cam.
