When you're studying abroad or embarking on a trip to London, Paris, Rome or wherever it may be, wouldn't it be nice to have a little guide that informs you on the hottest shopping destinations, nightlife spots, restaurants, art museums and more in the city you're visiting? If you agree with me, be happy to know there's an app for that called TRUFFLE Travel.
This free app, which you can easily download at the app store, gives you the 411 on activities and places you might like in your chosen city (think YELP but a little more sophisticated and "girly").
For example, if you're in London, you can explore these different categories on this cute little app: shop, dine, sip, explore, immerse, tours and guides. Click on "sip," and you'll get a taste of some of London's best bars, such as The Wolseley: it's the perfect place for a "ladies' lunch, elegant cocktails...and you're almost guaranteed to spot a celeb - or three!" according to TRUFFLE.
Click on "explore" and you'll get updates on some of the city's greatest attractions. For example, Los Angeles' "explore" section features Dodger Stadium, Griffith Park and the Getty Center.
The app also lets you know what the weather is like in each city, so you can plan ahead. You can also create a journal on TRUFFLE by taking pictures, uploading videos and adding notes.
Currently, the app has travel guides, tips and ideas for the following cities: Los Angeles, New York City, London and Paris. However, expect Rio, Capetown, Berlin, Rome, Barcelona, Tokyo and Sydney to pop up on the app soon.
Perfect for students who like to plan ahead, TRUFFLE Travel is a must-have app if you're going to be studying abroad next semester or venturing to a new city this holiday season.
