8 OF THE BEST TRAVEL APPS FOR YOUR NEXT TRIP

14/05/19

Ah, travel. We all love it right? However, we all know that the whole thing takes a lot of work. But here’s the thing, traveling can be easy and convenient. How? Apps. There is an app for every activity, and most of the time there are apps that we never knew existed or needed.

Here are 8 of the best travel apps for your next trip abroad. Let’s start!

The Essentials:

Pocket Maps Lite

This app lets you download the map of a specific place and allows you to view and use it offline. You never have to open your mobile data or connect to wifi to check what street you are in to get to the next attraction or the next restaurant.

CityMaps2Go
Works offline too

Uber or Grab

Not all countries have these services available, but having these apps on your phone is a must. Although, there are countries that have a clean, efficient and affordable public transportation system. I suggest you try that too. It’s fun!

We used Grab when we were around Bali, Indonesia. You can use Grab in Singapore as well.

World Transit Maps (MTR, MRT etc)

Some maps work offline while others need a wifi connection. I downloaded a few apps when I was in Singapore. I used the Singapore MRT LRT Offline, NextRide, and gothere.sg lite during my last visit. What I like about these apps is there are how-tos, where-to, and what to. You can never get lost using these apps.

Booking or Agoda

With these apps, you can log in to your profile and view your booking. There is no need to print your booking confirmation.

Last year when I went to Singapore, I clicked on my recent bookings, looked for the SHOW ADDRESS IN LOCAL LANGUAGE. This feature is great especially when you are not sure if they understand your language.

iTranslate

Traveling to a non-English speaking country can be a bit intimidating, so a language translating app is your go-to.

Other Apps:

Google Trips

You can create a trip here or check for recommended things to do or restaurants or places to eat. Each attraction or restaurants have detailed information when you click on it one by one which is super cool.

Spotted by Locals

This app is perfect for when you want to explore places recommended by locals. The only thing that is not quite ok is it only includes 72 cities around the world. Asia is not part of the list as well.

Travefy

This app lets you create your itinerary and view your day-to-day activity. It’s easy to navigate and has a share feature as well.
