'The Guide' Shows Tourists the Way

If you are a tourist exploring a rainy city, The Guide umbrella might be a cool alternative to GPS devices to show your around and keep you dry (or away from the scorching sun) at the same time.

The creative umbrella design serves as a guide of sorts with a map of the city with highlighted cafes, restaurants and hot spots printed on the outside of the umbrella.

This particular design by Cansu Cender features a map of Istanbul, Turkey, but it can be easily adopted to any area and sold at tourism shops and bookstores in these places. Stats for Helpful Umbrellas Trending: Older & Chilly
