Travel Guides


Your guides can be destination specific (Sightseeing in Sydney), topic specific (Hiking with Kids), or general (Ten Places to Go Before They Are Gone). If you've always wondered why no one has ever written a guide about a certain topic or destination, then this is your chance! Topics can span from anything and everything under the sun, as long as they are travel, lifestyle or entertainment related. And yes, you can also upload a 'simple' sightseeing guide  - why not, if it's good?




Here are a few ideas for travel guides to ignite your brain cells:


  • Hiking with Kids
  • See Chicago Like a Local
  • My soon to be famous hometown and it's two and a half attractions
  • Bangkok by Bicycle
  • Angkor Wat for Travelers with Disabilities
