User Experience – Travel Guide

Why you need a travel guide in the first place ? You probably wanna know where to go, where to shop, and where to eat, don’t you ? In addition, you probably want to know as well about when would be the best time to visit those interesting places and what is the best way to travel to there.

More importantly, you will like to know where shall you go first place in the morning. And then where shall you go after that, in the most time and cost economically way. Then the third place, the fourth etc. etc. Until you end your day with a good meal or a good show …

Now what if your favorite places are museums ? Or churches ? Or shopping centers ? Will that make your trip planning a bit complicated, if those places are scattered all around the city ?

So a travel guide is not a shopping guide, not a dining guide and not a guide about transportation !! To make it truely a useful guide, it has to be able to help you to plan all the above. I have close to a hundred travel guides but only very few of them provide good maps, good suggestions and tools to help me to plan a trip. In essence, I have close to a hundred unusable travel guides ! (many of them are famous and popular travel guides, you know …)
