Pao (say “pow”) is an app that helps you find and share the world’s hidden gems.

From rooftop bars, to beaches, art galleries, cafes, hikes, and concert venues, Pao shows you the coolest spots uploaded by other Pao users, and then helps you go experience them yourself. Share your own favorite spots, discover new favorite spots, and connect with other doers - not nameless reviewers!

Here at Pao we think its getting way too easy to stay inside and experience life through a screen…and its only going to get easier. Pao is a technological tool that flips the switch. Instead of sucking you in, it empowers you to go outside and connect with the real world. The most amazing things happen when you get off the couch!

Pao means “go” in Greek and thats exactly what it helps you do! You ready? Let’s go!

I’m obsessed.

This app has quickly become one of my favorites. There are so many cool places on here uploaded by users around the world. The best part is that it’s really hard to find such hidden and adventurous places on other travel websites, but the places on Pao are truly the best our planet has to offer. It’s the first place I look to find inspiration for food, hikes, and other destinations whenever I’m going somewhere new. I have found so many hidden gems that I want to visit. I even found a new brunch spot in my area that has quickly become a favorite. It’s also fun to upload places myself and feel like I am contributing to the friendly and supportive Pao community! I also love the curated Playlists and creative travel ideas! If you are into travel and exploring new places at all, this is the app for you!!!

Must download if you want to find new spots!!!

I have an obsession with finding new coffee shops and thrift stores and this app helps me find places that people have been with similar styles to me and also helps me share places I’ve been with others. This app is also great to help me keep a log of where I’ve been and where I want to go, like my own little travel diary. Although I haven’t traveled anywhere outside of California, I know I have this app available with the places I saved for when I do travel so I’ll know exactly where to go to have the best experience. I think it really motivates me to try new places and explore and since I’ve downloaded this app I’ve been telling everyone I know about it becuase I want to share the excitement with them about this amazing app.

Pao is seriously changing the social media game right before our eyes! Founded by 3 AMAZING women, Pao has a mission that no other social media app has: get out and go! It has easily become one of my top 3 favorite apps and I will always recommend that everyone else uses it too! It’s the absolute perfect platform to share your experiences so that other people can experience them too. If you’re wondering what the very best part is...NO NEGATIVITY! On pao, you are connecting with REAL life people, no computer bots. It’s such a positive community of people who truly just want to explore the incredible world we live in! The app has such a clean aesthetic that it makes it so easy to use, too! Why are you still reading this review, GO DOWNLOAD PAO!!!!!
