How To Plan Your Next Trip With AR

08 August 2022 09:00

Planning your next trip is an adventure. As you browse several locations, your mind wanders to all the different activities and sights you can experience. Then you start to decide on the duration of your trip and how to make the most out of your stay while visiting. Here, you’re critical of how you spend your time and exactly what you want to do with it.

Did you know that planning a trip can vary from a couple of weeks to six months or even significantly longer, like one to two years? It all depends on how much you know about the place you’re planning to visit and what you’ll need to get around to different sites.

Have you ever thought about how helpful a local is in this scenario? Not many are fortunate enough to know a local in their dream destinations to show them around. However, thanks to emerging technologies like augmented reality (AR), you can have the best local experience right at your fingertips.

At Social Bee, we’ve created the perfect solution to maximize your time and help you find the ideal experience to fit your needs and exceed your expectations. But how? Let’s look at how Social Bee has made planning your next trip and creating memorable experiences easier.

Finding Hidden Gems Through AR

Often, while traveling, visitors tend to end up in touristy areas doing activities that are quite common, not exactly having the ultimate local experience. Or sometimes they end up on overcrowded tours, so they don’t get a chance to learn as much as they would if they had a personalized experience. And then, they’re usually taken to popular restaurants, often paying for overpriced meals and long waiting lines.

Wouldn’t it be nice to have an app that will help filter your interests and preferences and then show you hidden gems as you walk down main streets? This is our promise: At Social Bee, we offer a platform where insightful local tour guides can add unique tours so that travelers can take them whenever they want.

Let’s say you’ve stopped by Miami and want to get away from the touristy (and pricey) spots in Brickell. Now, if you don’t have a local friend to show you around, you can just open up Social Bee, filter indoor or outdoor activities, and walk towards the hidden gems highlighted. With the help of AR, you can learn about historical landmarks, what makes local spots a ‘must see’ for visitors, and test out your ‘Miami knowledge’ with the help of interactive quizzes and scavenger hunts.

How to Plan Your Next Trip

Booking your flight and stay is just one part of the fun, but finding what to do throughout our stay is a whole other feat. However, with Social Bee, the task not only becomes easier but more fun.

All you have to do is enter your destination city in our search bar, and a list of possible activities will pop up. Filter through these tours by indoor, outdoor, pet-friendly, foodie, etc., and prepare yourself for your very own personalized local experience.

Over the years, AR has become the lifeline for the travel industry allowing visitors and tour guides to interact in a fun and engaging manner. These innovative approaches aren’t going unnoticed, and the global investments in AR in the travel industry is expected to reach US$ 304.4 million by the year 2023, growing at a CAGR of 32.5%. This is a noticeable and substantial reflection on how these emerging technologies are revolutionizing how we go about our daily activities, including traveling.
