To start getting details on the city you plan to visit you can type it into Gogobot’s search box or choose to explore popular destinations around the world. Once you have found your desired city, you can start exploring the three major categories which are Stay, Eat, and Play.
Explore accommodations for your destination
Once you click on Stay you are presented with suggested accommodations in and around your chosen destination. You can see the hotel class, rating, per night rate, and tags for the hotel, motel, or resort. Clicking on one of the locations will provide you more details such as address and phone, and ratings and reviews. What the location is popular for is shown by the use of tags which are simliar to categories. Helpful tags include luxury, trendsetters, nightlife, families, business, and more. If you make a choice to book that location you can do so from within the app which redirects you to a travel-type site such as Expedia.com or Bookings.com.
Find great places to eat
Once you click on Eat you are presented with a list of dining options for your destination. This screen also shows details such as rating, tags, and a price range from one to four dollar signs.

Line up your activities
Once you click on Play you are presented with suggested activities in and near your destination with a rating for each. After choosing one you will again be shown address and phone with ratings and reviews. Helpful tags include outdoor, adventure, business, students, and more.
