8 APPS TO HELP YOU TRAVEL LIKE A LOCAL

Want to experience new destinations like a local? We have collated 8 easy-to-use apps that will help you travel more like a local. From where you eat and sleep to what you see and do, these apps have you covered.

1. Local Eats

Want to eat where the locals do? Local Eats features independently-owned restaurants and local places only. We also love the GPS “what’s near me” feature, to help you find the closest local food place to you.

2. Spotted by Locals

Available in Europe and North America (for now), Spotted by Locals features guides and tips created by handpicked “Spotters” who live in the city they write about. They share their favourite spots to eat, play and relax in their beloved city.

3. Airbnb

If you truly want to experience a new city like a local you need to ditch your hotel and stay in an Airbnb. People from around the world have put their flats, rooms, tree houses and even boats online for you to stay at for the fraction of the price of a hotel. We have used Airbnb to stay in cities from all around the world and is the perfect way to live in city and feel more like a local.
