Where do you go to get inspired for next travel destinations?

I'm trying to travel as much as I can, but I sometimes lack inspiration. I'm of course talking about country/city recommendation, but most importantly less-known/hidden places all over the world. Do you fine people know of a website or an app doing that?

    Disclosure: I'm the founder of Hitlist. But we do our best to do exactly what you're saying: offer inspiration of places both known and off the beaten track. You can sort destinations by type (whale watching? Vegan friendly?), budget, the time that you're free to travel, and more. You can also see where your friends have been and ask them for tips if you choose to connect your social networks. You can save the destinations that interest you to your 'Hitlist' and get alerts when flight prices fall.

    The app enables you to find cheap flights and airline tickets. You can also browse the cheapest airfare for domestic and international flights.

      I fly a lot, but I'm not rich. Why is it so difficult to find cheap flights and why does it seem like airlines don't apply any logic to their fares at all? Hitlist has already saved me many hours of checking airfares online. I get notified whenever an interesting fare comes up for a destination that's on my wishlist. Hitlist works better for me than Hopper.

    as an ex-employee here, we used to spend a lot of time focussing on how we could inspire our users to escape. There's the option to browse collections or just look at the long list of offers, all of which are discounted (some greater than others)

    I like going on Townske to see user-curated guides. Love that I'm able to search by keyword or interests (ie. hidden gems, photography spots, etc.) depending on what you're looking for on your next trip ;)

    Lonely Planet publishes travel guides known as "the Bible of backpackers". They have their own writers/explorers who are traveling around the world and looking for worth to see places. I recommend digging in their online service when looking for inspiration for a next trip.

      I found SpottedbyLocals in their early stages several years ago. I met with their founders and became a witness of their expansion and improvements. Wherever I travel, I make sure I download that city if it is available.

      I almost stopped visiting places, which are not listed on SpottedbyLocals.

      The latest version of the app has great improvements in design and stability. Their content is the king anyways.

      Yeah, this is very cool. I used to do something like this by searching with a large radius from Matrix by ITA Software (which powers the backend of many flight search engines). Very, very cool to get it in a few clicks. Very cool too.

      Priced everything! I can know the budget in seconds. Gave luggage/carryon info on the same page. Itinerary illustrated making it easy for me to visualise. Can book INSTANTLY, locking all flights in at once! And, BEST of all, it chose locations I would not have chosen (from lack of personal experience) thus opening my mind and allowing for random dreaming and possibility. Potential Indiana Jones adventure thing. Very cool.
