Playligo's videos offer close-up views of travel spots


I thought I had done fairly well in planning our trip to Italy’s Mediterranean coast a few years ago. But none of the websites and photo collections that I viewed had really captured the beauty of Positano, the nightlife of Sorrento or the truly harrowing experience of driving the Amalfi Coast road and sharing it with tricks and tour buses.

Had it been available back then, Playligo would have been a welcome tool for planning our trip. Unlike the dry descriptions found in many travel guides, Playligo uses video to provide a closer and more entertaining view of a travel destination.

Once a user creates a Playligo account, the service will suggest destinations that might inspire you. If you already know where you want to go, Playligo lets you build a video playlist to match your itinerary. The playlist can be shared with friends or with others in your travel group.

Comments posted by contributors can help members choose among different options for attractions or side trips and discover new destinations they might not know about. Users can also create polls to get group input on a topic like which area has better Roman ruins - Pompeii or Herculaneum?

To get a closer look at Playligo, visit the Playligo website, where registration is free, and check out the public playlist.
