Why Foursquare – the only programs that you need to navigate in an unfamiliar city

We often write about programs, services, and mobile applications for travelers. All because we are looking for an ideal that will allow us in the new town, which we did not know how to be at home. The truth is that we already have such an application, and it is called Foursquare. Let me share my experience of using this application and a couple of stories.
Find the best coffee in town

Sure, I can tell you how cool Foursquare in San Francisco 🙂 that is indeed the case, but it works in a city such as Almaty. About a year ago I was in this city and we are with my friend Oleg, living here for several years, started an experiment. I asked him to name five of the best coffee in town, to which we could go on foot. If possible, I asked him to sort them by some internal rating, only feelings. He called five coffee shops. We opened the phone and asked for help Foursquare TOP coffeehouses around us. All five were named them coffee in the TOP issue Foursquare! Order of places was a little different but I would drink the best coffee in town and without Oleg, although it interesting!
Find the best museum in the city

We come in big cities, in which we have guidebooks. Bangkok, Istanbul, Moscow and others. We just open Foursquare and find museums, exhibitions, shops, coffee themed and they – the best that city has to offer. In this you can see for yourself, just checking in some fresh or Lonely Planet Essential # # nuzhnyy_gorod.
Lists interesting

Looking easy to find lists of the “Best Steaks in New York” or “Singapore per night.” You can be where your friends are up to you, or simply create your list in advance and explore it with Foursquare in the hands.
Ball always find wi-fi

If you need a password for the network, then just go to the card of the hotel, restaurant or cafe, and tips from users section you will find details of the access to the network, even if it is closed. You do not need to go to a coffee shop and ask for your password in exchange for coffee – just wait on the street, pull out what you need (maps, photos, route route) and go. For example, I zadolbalsya drink coffee in Moscow 300 rubles and use Internet Coffee House exactly as written.
In the good places are always a lot of good people

There is a place in Kiev – AROMA. This is an Israeli cafe, which is always fast internet, always great food and always a lot of beautiful girls. If you are not local, then simply select the partition and do not miss Trending Aromu, or another such a cool place near you. Moreover, prior to the visit of a place, you can always know who’s there – just look at the card and fold their understanding of place.
With Foursquare easily acquainted with anyone

I spent a few days ago a simple experiment. Sat in the cafe La Fabrique on Samui, where I work a couple of hours every day, waiting for her son with a workout. Zachekinilsya in Foursquare and decided to look who else besides me there is. I saw a girl Olya (name changed), and went on her profile – Muscovite, a lot of pictures with her dog Spitz, a student … I decided to test the hypothesis. Just came up and said hello to his forehead: “Hi Olga …” Then he asked how, in her opinion, is a dog breed Dog Samui – hairy misunderstanding in the heat and moisture will obviously not feel very much. The eyes of my lab rat widened from vyvalennogo amounts of information from a complete stranger. I then explained what was happening, and made a conclusion that Foursqure – is a powerful intelligence tool and it should be used for its intended purpose!
Never miss a new place if you love something new

In the search section is a parameter Recently Opened. Here are shown only those institutions that have been opened recently. Just go there regularly and see what’s new, you can visit today.

Do not look for the best solution, not swing a bunch of obscure stremnyh guides, and just let Foursqure chance next your new city. I’m sure he will not disappoint you. And do not forget about a tablet version of the service, which is located on explore.foursqure.com
