A new travel Web site has popped up which is taking an interesting approach to providing travelers with information they need regarding destinations around the world. Extremely puff-piece style press release aside, Chokti looks to have a different spin on researching your next travel location.
Chokti pulls together information for a specific location from not just the official source itself but also a variety of other sources such as user opinions and guides. The information, often collected through RSS feeds from various Web sites, is geotagged and organized into a search engine. It makes use of a searchable map and accepts user generated content.
Chokti said it will pull “together as much content as possible that relates to a certain topic in an easy-to-use format. The site can be used to: access guides to cities, museums, historical sites, parks, zoos, restaurants, hotels and amusement parks; distribute supplemental information through pdf files containing maps, coupons and vouchers; and promote current and upcoming events such as gallery exhibits.” It fully launches this fall.
