Belgian-based start-up Live the World launches free travel platform
By: Live the World bv
"There are so many beautiful places in Belgium but people don't really know about them. An all-in-one user-friendly platform to easily find something new and interesting is missing", says Zoë Vets, one of the founders of Live the World. "On websites like TripAdvisor, you mostly find information about commercial tours and activities, but not about that small beautiful park that you didn't know about, or street art in a city further away."
Live the World offers a solution. At http://www.livethe.world visitors will find a map with more than 140 activities. You can customize the map view with filters like "Feeling Adventurous"
Time and effort saved
"The current Covid pandemic has reinforced the "slow travel" trend that was already emerging. People are more and more looking for unique, smaller-scale experiences, and avoiding the major tourist attractions."
"When we plan a trip, we usually use travel guides, blogs and social media. However, most of these sources cover the tourist hot-spots and it takes a lot of time and energy to find and keep track of interesting and unique activities. Simply put, there is information overload. Live the World users can quickly and easily find information about activities and places they are interested in. We also want to use artificial intelligence in the future to make personalized recommendations and itineraries."
Plan your trip in 1 single place
Live the world's mission is simple: making travel planning fun, by combining a user-friendly platform with inspirational, trust-worthy travel information. Zoë Vets, co-founder of Live the World, puts the company's future vision this way: "Imagine, post-covid, finally planning a 2-week trip to that faraway location you've been dreaming of since lockdown. You log into your account, get personalized recommendations and read all the relevant information in one single place. Now you have a just-for-you itinerary tailored to your likes and dislikes, available for download right on your phone."
