Finding your next travel destination is easier than you think! Ever sit and wonder about the places you will go to? Want an adventure that takes you far away, but not where others typically roam? GoingPlaces is the app for you.
GoingPlaces will you have you, well, going places! Going to places that you may not have known existed, or going to places that are just around the corner. Its your choice. You get to explore from what seems like an unending number of destinations, each overflowing with numerous images to ogle over.
The app is a free download, and lets you link in through your Facebook account, so your friends can see what some of the places you are thinking about, and they may even be able to chime in about those places. Maybe theyve been there and they thought it was the bomb; or, they may suggest going at a better time of the year. Either way, you get better feedback, making for a better adventure.
If you dont have a Facebook account or if you just dont wish to connect that way, you can register using an email address.
The true value GoingPlaces provides is a central location from which to find your next great escape. Sure, you could page through travel magazines and their colorful images, or you could sit and watch travel shows, but they will showcase whats been paid for, or what will bring in dollars. You want a place that you can rely on thats powered by fellow travelers like you. GoingPlaces is essentially a community that helps give you ideas and guides you, when needed.
The app also connects you with experts in travel, so if you have questions, someone is there to help. They can even get you started on your plans, all from the comfort of home, using the app.
The app also offers the following features:
- Thousands of vibrant photos to browse from, sorted by destination and/or interest
- A Profile Page that allows you to save and return to for future plans
- Trending destinations, allowing you to see popular destinations in the GoingPlaces community
- Connectivity through text messages, email or Facebook, so you can share with family and friends
- Commentaries on destinations you can use them for places youre planning to visit and leave them for places youve been to
- Link in to the travel website featured in the photo and get specific trip details
- Connect directly with our network of expert tour operators, hotels, tourism boards, and much more
With so many features and destinations to browse through, it would be very difficult to exhaust your curiosity with the overabundance of photos that the app has to offer. The only downside is sometimes there are so many images to scroll through, you lose sight of where the images are coming from, which does not help.
Once youve gone through a few of the sites, saved a few favorites, you will become a pro at sifting through destinations that you want to see, filtering out the ones you are not interested in, and will be able to squirrel away the ones you would like to return to sometime in the future. Just be sure to share your experiences should you end up in one of the destinations GoingPlaces take you to.
