Travelling is a great opportunity to see many interesting places and find something new for inspiration. Imagine that you pick up a Brighton car hire and expect an exciting road trip to local attractions. A hire car allows you to explore the city at your own pace, and then go looking for other sights within driving distance.
Yes, your travel horizons will be much wider if you hire a car, but unfortunately, this is not enough to find unique places on your trip. Another thing you need is a travel guide. If you used to use a paper guide before, you can now take advantage of your smartphone. Just install the following apps and you will know where to go, where to eat, and what to see wherever you go.
TripAdvisor is an app for travellers with a passion for new places and sights. The application allows you to search for interesting landmarks for a specific city. Also, you can read the recommendations – what to do, where to dine, or what architectural monuments to visit.
For your convenience, TripAdvisor provides great deals on cafe and restaurant reservations. There’s also a special map on which you can see the location of interesting places directly from the application.
TripAdvisor makes it possible to plan your trip, book tickets to museums, concerts, excursions, and other interesting events. Moreover, you can save your favorite sights and invite travellers around the world to create a joint trip.
The online service was created back in 2011 by a British entrepreneur. According to the idea, he was supposed to benefit both tourists and homebodies. Now the app is a great travel companion that helps people to choose interesting places around the globe.
The content is varied and includes food, art, music, books, films, and design. The authors of the articles published in the app live all over the world. They attach live photos, videos, animations to their publications. In a word, they do everything to interest you in this or that destination. All in all, Culture Trip is a great service for both travel planning and inspiration.
This unique app compiles a selection of sights and other points of interest based on what a potential traveller is looking for. Just tell the app your preferences and it will take into account your interests, cultural and entertainment ratings, and recommendations from other users each time you search.
The application will help you find a restaurant with Mexican cuisine, a nightclub, designer clothing boutiques, themed cafes, and coffee shops with the most delicious coffee and exquisite cakes. You can get tips from insiders on what to order and what is not, and what not to miss.
