Maps & Snaps! Introducing New Destination Pages

Maps & Snaps! Introducing New Destination Pages Photo

IgoUgo members are nothing if not talented travelers: we know that you wouldn’t go anywhere without a good map, and we can see that you wouldn’t return without great photos. So we’re very happy to introduce new page designs with more maps and bigger photos to help you plan your next trip.

On our Explore Destinations page, find a brand-new, interactive world map; by zooming or moving it to your region of interest, or by selecting an area from the drop-down menu, you’ll see pins pop up with trip ideas based on IgoUgo’s most popular destinations. If the world map’s feeling a little overwhelming, just navigate with the new country index instead. This is one case where it’s all about the destination you seek and not about how you get there!

We’ve put our individual destination pages on the map, too, with pins identifying their locations and an all-new design. Visit London, for example, to see how we’re using your photos to display the world. Not only that, we’re relying on you to choose the photos: you can always click “Change Photo” there to select the photo you think best represents London.

We’d love for you to help us make these new pages even more useful by selecting the photos to showcase. If you’re the first traveler to change a destination’s photo, you’ll see a message telling you so--so how about finding some of these places and becoming the first to select the perfect snapshot?

As always, we’d love to hear what you think of our new designs. Feel free to send us an email or post a note on the IgoUgo Forums, and thank you for your help selecting the best travel photos for our destinations!
