Kukunu is a collaborative trip-planning tool that lets people create detailed itineraries online. The application offers all the calendars, planning, and scheduling features that a traveler could ever need to manage the information overload associated with planning a major trip. But of course, Kukunu doesn’t stop there. The team behind this innovative web-app has also created ways for users to share their vacation plans and collaborate with friends and co-travelers in a meaningful way.
When the inspiration strikes and you think of a destination you’d like to visit, just sign on to Kukunu and get started planning your dream vacation right away. When you use Kukunu, you don’t have to wait for your travel agent to open his doors at 8 a.m. before you can start booking plane tickets and making hotel reservations. The application has partnered with hundreds of thousands of hotels, restaurants, and landmarks worldwide to make it super simple for users to price out their plans and make actual reservations at any time, day or night. Once you know where you’re going and when you plan to go, you’ll want to invite any buddies who will be coming along on the trip. Collaborators can view the plans you’ve already made and make adjustments based on what the whole group wants to do.
With Kukunu, you really can do it all. Not only can you organize group schedules and calendars, but you can also get ideas from fellow travelers on what to eat, see, and do in exotic locales around the world. By tapping into the collective wisdom – and utilizing other social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter when looking for vacation ideas and recommendations – Kukunu has become an extremely useful web-app for every traveler to have in his toolbox.

I think that travelstormer – that I learned about here as well – is a closer alternative than some you’ve cited re. Kukunu.
