While the internet has made trip planning easier, it also requires sifting through hundreds of pages of destination research. CoolP, a travel platform developed by Korean startup Hotsunny Co.Ltd, has implemented a fix that assists travelers in selecting ideal destinations based on experience sharing.
Recently, the app has been attracting attention in particular because it allows travelers to vividly experience the travel destinations they want to visit as well as all personal experiences they can have at the travel destination through videos.
CoolP is a travel genie that shows you what to do on your trip
CoolP, available on Android and iPhone, shows what to do at tourist attractions through short videos of 18 seconds shared by other travelers. Users can select a location or an activity and watch videos to learn about what they can do there as well as the name and location of the site.
CoolP organizes every travel experience expressed through short video clips by location and theme, making it easier to find. The app already includes content from 1700 cities and a variety of themes. CoolP’s one-of-a-kind “Dual Search Bar” provides an optimized way to get trip ideas and suggestions on what to do while on a trip.
CoolP’s AI module gathers data from various types of travelers based on location and theme and matches it with what similar travelers are likely to enjoy. The social travel experience-sharing platform comes in handy for self-guided tour reservations.
The app allows travelers to get a sense of the destinations through the videos of other travelers and simplifies travel planning. The app also includes features like a Bucket list and My travel log to help users narrow their search and store preferences.
Pandemic-induced travel restriction adds to the popularity
While outdoor activities were restricted during the Covid-19 outbreak, many people enjoyed traveling from the comfort of their homes by surfing the internet. Users were vicariously satisfied by visiting, tasting, and enjoying experiences others have visited, tasted, and appreciated.
As a result, many people are indirectly attempting to experience various domestic and international travel destinations. Many contents are used to plan future travels or relive previously visited locations’ memories.
The travel platform CoolP, created in response to this demand, is also available at all stages of travel. The CoolP experience aids in the planning process, remains with users from the beginning of the trip, aids in the recording of the trip and remains until the final stages of the journey, and later aids in the enjoyment of those beautiful memories.
Furthermore, after viewing the video, users can contact experienced people about the locations they want to visit and plan efficient movements while learning about various local tourist attractions, experience facilities, and restaurants before embarking on a full-fledged trip.
CoolP has been launched simultaneously in English-speaking countries such as the United States, Europe, and Australia, in addition to Korea, and is set to enter five Middle Eastern and Southeast Asian countries. Many well-known travel bloggers, including men’s travel and room TV, have taken part, and more diverse bloggers, YouTubers, and influencers will participate in the future.
