Citiport.net is a travel site based on user recommendations from the people who live there.

Citiport says Google doesn't give specific enough information when searching for travel, but says Citiportwill.


You can choose the city you're traveling to and, assuming someone has already added that city, there will be a top 10 list of best places to go based on what fellow travelers have said and what locals say. There are message boards and user profiles from locals so you can ask questions.

The most interesting part is the trip planner, which can be performed all in the same window via a dropdown menu of types of activities (restaurants, beaches, tours, shopping) listed in order by highest rated.
