Where to stay, what to eat, how to move around town, and what activities are available are all questions we ask ourselves when we are planning a trip to a destination we have never visited before. Some city guide apps only provided details for a limited amount of locations while those that offer a lot of information can be costly. Luckily, Travel Guide by Afar has an app that can provide the details you need for your next trip for over 100 destinations worldwide without the hassle. The app received an update recently bringing you even more guides and features to help take the chore out of making your travel plans.
View the Essentials section to check out the details you need before you get there. Review the best time to visit, tips for local transportation, cultural highlights, and even yearly events. Then hop over to the Guide tab for curated lists showing activity recommendations, hot spots, and where to eat, shop, and stay.
The Map view has been improved so you can now filter and sort easily. Sort by distance or rating, look at recommended spots, or choose a category and then view those results on the map. This really gives the map view a much cleaner and easier to see picture. The Highlight editor has also been updated so that you can now add your own experiences. Upload a photo and write about your visit as you travel through your destination.
The Travel Guide by Afar packs great information into a sleek, intuitive interface. It is simple to navigate, the details for locations are good, and the essentials you need to know before you get there are useful to have and keep handy. Some hotel locations even display helpful Insider Tips such as favorite rooms and local bargains.
Travel Guide by Afar is available for free on the App Store for iPhone.
