This site covers beaches, places, cities, museum, hotels, gardens, trucking locations, adventurous locations, traditional foods, culture and society, etc.. All this information will be acting as a Guide for every traveler planning for a trip to choose the best for them. We explain about every place through article with the support of images, videos to make us always unique in this field, so we called as this a “Layman’s Guide to Travel”. Around 120 countries are planned to cover up according to the project plan, initially starts with top 10 countries famous for tourism ** as per UNWTO.
Why, How to support us?
This site will run as a non-profit website at the initial phase, until it starts to generate an income through advertisements / affiliations for its own maintenance. Website is under development and it will be launched in the mid of Jan 2016 as per project plan. We are seeking more fund to enrich the site with glossy design, adding new features, the addition of more articles by covering many places in a shortest span.

Development & site maintenance /month – 1650$
1200$ Images / month
2700$ video /month
Software purchase /year – 5000$

Funds receiving for this project will be utilized only for the website enrichment, maintenance, new article posting, software purchases, image/video purchase etc. Any server upgrade required that also will be considered according to the budget availability at the given point of time.
