Like A Local in the Press

Ülane • 2 Jun, 2014

Judging by the number of mentions we received last month, it’s clear that the travel season has well and truly started. We weren’t quite prepared when tens of thousands of people visited our site to check out the Top Free Things to Do in Amsterdam blog post after I Amsterdam shared it with their Facebook followers. Here’s a rundown of the press coverage we received over the last 30 days.

Condé Nast Traveller

Apps That Will Make You Feel Like a Local, No Matter Where You Travel: “In theory, all guidebooks aspire to treat readers to the insider experience, but Like a Local is assembled by hundreds of local writers with a no-nonsense attitude. (Skip the tourist traps!, they cry.) Guides offer hotel, restaurant, and bar options across a couple dozen European cities, sending visitors to sites that aren’t packed to the gills with wide-eyed visitors. We especially like that you can use Like a Local without an Internet connection: Just remember to download a city guide ahead of time (the app is free, but you pay for individual guides) and it’s stored on your smart device of choice.” Read more…

Uusi sovellus: Ei turistirysille!

Haluatko välttää kesälomallasi pahimmat turistirysät ja tutustua matkakohteessasi paikallisten ihmisten oikeaan elämään?

Mobiilisovellus Like A Local Guide on tehty juuri tätä tarkoitusta varten. Se opastaa uteliaan matkaajan parhaisiin kahviloihin, ravintoloihin ja muihin ajanviettopaikkoihin, joista tavallisia turisteja kauko-ohjaavat opaskirjat eivät pukahda. Monipuolisten suositusten takana ovat kunkin kaupungin aidot ja oikeat paikallisasukit, jotka haluavat vinkata lempipaikoistaan sovelluksen käyttäjille.
