When it launched in 2009, Foursquare was principally a website for telling your friends where you were by checking in to restaurants, bars and cafes. Although that function is still possible using their sister company Swarm, Foursquare has since become one of the best websites around for finding things to do, whether its to eat, drink, dance or shop.

 

With its simple platform you can quickly and easily search for exactly what you want by either clicking on their pre-set categories or typing in to their search bar. Once you’ve decided, Foursquare takes you through to a new page with a map of your current location and various pinpoints in numerical order, one being the highest rated in the category. There are also various extra filters you can apply, such as special deals, price range and opening hours to make your search even more specific.

 

A feature that I particularly like to use is the ‘Saved’ category, where you can add places that you might want to view later. This makes for quick decision-making if, for example, you have saved a cool looking coffee shop and need somewhere local for a caffeine fix. Each establishment’s ranking is based on user reviews that can easily be viewed alongside user photos by simply clicking on the name. Additionally, the more you use Foursquare, the more accurate its recommendations for you will be as it starts to learn your preferences.

 

One downside to the website is that it doesn’t have quite as many reviews as other similar websites, such as TripAdvisor, nor is the list of businesses as extensive. Nevertheless, the website in general is much more clutter-free than its competitor as it doesn’t offer hotel or flight comparison, giving it a friendlier and cleaner feel.

Pros
  • Simple, clean and user-friendly interface
  • Lots of filters to choose from
  • Option to save favourites that can be viewed later
Cons
  • Doesn’t contain as many reviews or businesses as other websites

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.
