Great map ux/ui! Any insights on how it was built? A lot smoother than other examples i've seen. I'm also currently working on something in the travel space and have been following you guys since beta. The jump in the product is huge! Great job :)

@haichenw Thanks so much Haichen! I'm so glad you like it. We're using Mapbox for the mapping interface which has given us a lot more control over the appearance and allows for much smoother interactions than the other options we tried. It is super powerful when it comes to styling as well.
