12hrs - Travel guides for people like you!

12hrs - Travel guides for people like you! | Travel apps and tips | Scoop.it

We love to travel. We also love design, and music, and fashion. And we were missing a website full of travel tips for people like us. Somewhere between the backpackers and the luxury hotels. With tips that aren’t about money, but about great discoveries from all around the world. So we built 12hrs.

To keep it simple, we organized them in itineraries. 12 hours per trip. Sweet and short. With the best to see, do, eat, dance we could fit in one short stay. We ignored a lot of the usual recommendations, because we trust you that you will find the obvious tourist highlights yourself. You can follow our schedule, or you can just pick a few selected tips and ignore the rest. We won’t judge you. Let’s go on a trip together!
