If you’re the type of traveler who wants to be at the forefront of cool in any neighborhood or city in the world, don’t leave home without consulting Culture Trip.
The app is a whip-smart hybrid of magazine and travel site. Half 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 of their hometown.
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 & Do, Art, Lifestyle, Food & Drink, and Places to Stay. Tap your topic and 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 lets you bookmark spots for your wishlist, share with friends or family, or view popular locations on a map. You can also download for offline viewing if you’re traveling abroad or just don’t want to use your cellular data on the go.
