the world's smartest travel social network
"FACEBOOK for travelers. That's the aim of [Tripatini], a social networking site of, for and by travelers - from writers to flight attendants and travel agents - focusing on over 250 global locations."
New York Post / New York, NY
"While more than 50 million social reviews have been created on TripAdvisor, one of the biggest hits of the past year has been Tripatini – a travel-dedicated social media and booking site. Dubbed “Facebook for travellers” by the New York Post, it has been lauded for harmoniously bringing together travel industry experts with the travel-loving public in Q&A-style dialogue. Its fledgling YouTube channel also has potential – tapping into the trend towards demand for advisory/documentary moving image content."
