One thought on “TripAdvisor: The ultimate travel online community

  1. A very addictive platform. It has a variety of services. The fact that it combines all these services helps the user get the available information all at once. It provides you the opportunity to get to a placed having a whole picture of the place you are visiting. You don’t spend a lot of time searching for the best restaurant, activities you may attend, flights in and out and of course rooms and hotels you can spend the nights there.
    Very helpful is also the user’s opinions. For me it is important to know the experience other people had in places I want to go. The way all these opinions are used as it ensures that they indeed sharing their sincere view. The community they are building is very strong and we can say that the user critics can be considered reliable since they are the actual and probably the only ones we should trust.
    My experience using the platform is very pleasant. During my last holidays I used TripAdvisor as my main mean of information about Paxous. I managed to find a very beautiful villa in a reasonable value that made my stay in the island great. Following user critics, I ate in some of the best places like Karkalentzos Tavern in Gaios where you can eat tasteful traditional recipes made by fresh ingredients. We also visited not only the famous and obvious beaches of the island but managed to discover and swim in some of the not so well known. In general TripAdvisor provided exactly what it has promised.
