Culture Trip is like a crib sheet to the zeitgeist. It’s a whip-smart hybrid of magazine and travel site. Half of its content is quirky listicles and videos on viral topics of the day, while the other half is location-based travel articles and recommendations, curated by a team of local experts with their fingers trained on the pulse.
It feels dynamic: the app updates regularly, so the same city can feel like a totally different place from one day to the next.
You can filter recommendations via categories, including see and do, art, lifestyle, food and drink, and places to stay. Tap your topic and you’ll get a whole page of articles that give you a feel for the mood of a place, as well as all the specifics such as price, precise location and how to book.
Each piece has a heart rating, which tells you how the community is reacting to it, and the app also recommends other articles on the same topic. It’s easy to lose yourself in Culture Trip – though you’ll emerge able to pass as a veritable travel expert.
Culture Trip is visual-heavy, which is so important when you’re crafting an itinerary. You can bookmark articles to return to, mail links to friends, and save them to read offline.
