July 1, 2010 – Make Your Own Travel Guide

Who needs to buy an expensive travel guide from the bookstore when you can make your own at home? lets you do just that, giving users a way to create their own destination guides for 50 of the world’s most popular cities with just a few simple clicks. By browsing through a listing of each city’s top hotels, restaurants, bars, and attractions, users can create customized travel guides that reflect their interests to a tee.

Before you can get started creating a travel guide with, you’ll have to figure out where you’re going. Choose one of 50 top cities, and start clicking through photos of the city’s top highlights. When you come across a hotel, restaurant, or attraction that looks like something you’d enjoy, just click on the “Add to Guide” tab and keep browsing. As you continue browsing through your options, you can glance at the custom guide you’re putting together on the right side of the page. When you’re satisfied with the number of restaurants and attractions you’ve added, click the “View Guide” button. You can name your guide whatever you wish, add notes to better explain the theme of your trip, and share your plan with friends and family via Facebook, Twitter, or email. Click “Preview Guide” to see the product you’ve put together, and download a PDF version of the guide to print whenever you’re done.

If you’re less interested in putting together your own guide and more interested in seeing what other users have done, will let you do that, too. The application has suggested guides for each of its 50 top cities, which can be downloaded by themselves or added to the custom guide you’re already putting together. In a digital world, standard travel books are becoming a relic of the past. now offers users a better way to plan for their upcoming trips without spending a bundle on travel books that are already out of date as soon as they go to print.

  3. Thanks for the good review:) We’re launching a new site today and we have also launched our app for iPhone in stores today – free of course:) And we have changed how people can use the site with an “add your own button” where you can add whatever you like to your guide. And there is more exciting stuff to come!
