Tell Tripbase What You Like. It Will Tell You Where To Travel.
I don't know how Tripbase works, so it must be magic.
Tripbase is a website that claims to offer unbiased recommendations about where to travel. To use the site, simply move the sliders left or right to indicate how important each of the criteria is. Click submit. After a moment, several destinations will appear, ranked according to the preferences you indicated.
I set the sliders as shown, checked "hide popular destinations," and Tripbase told me I'd like Hobart, Helsinki, and Kyoto -- three places I never thought would appeal to me.
Clicking on any destination opens a new window with a brief overview of that place that also highlights activities that might interest you. It also offers quick links to WikiTravel, Lonely Planet, Trip Advisor, Google, related articles, and more. Further, if you click "Search Flights," Tripbase takes you to Kayak to book a ticket.
Tripbase allows you to set other parameters, as well, that'll help you focus your search. For example, you can tell Tripbase:
- what your budget is;
- what type of trip you're looking to take (backpacker vs. luxury);
- what your weather "needs" are;
- whether you want to visit during the tourist season or low season;
- what continents you're interested in visiting.
Have a look and play around. Who knows? This "Magic 8 Ball" of a website might help you stumble over the best vacation of your life.
