While I was sorting out my itinerary for Shanghai ......I found difficulty to pen down specific things to go, to eat and to see based on my fragmented memory of the city. It is afterall a long time ago since I last visited and then a thought struck me.
With the proliferation of social media and its existence being part and parcel of life to faciliate exchange information......have anyone come across any social media site or mobile apps that allows one to dynamically package restuarants, clubs, theatres, movies or night out deals and be presented with a single rate? Or something that tells you what your options are if you only have a 100 dollars to spend on a thursday night based on preference in your profiling?
I know there are a million apps or sites that tell you every tom,dick,harry's good, bad, excellent experiences in places to go, things to do and how much to pay but its too time exhausting and I dont even think we have the patience to read comments beyond the first page these days.
With the profiling of an individual user, it makes sense to have targetted outlets and establishments. What I'm just thinking is to use technology to reverse that process and present users with the nightout option (like a package tour) that is quick to facilitate, manage and meet expectations for those wanting to have a good nightout in a foreign land.......Instead of looking and reading thru bazillion of reviews, tell me what my options are with my budget and what are they.....Im not speaking for highly sophiscated individual who wants the one and only night out experience but speaking on behalf of lazy asses like me who wants it easy.
Anyone came across something of that sort?
