Responding to the demand of modern travelers, world-leading travel publisher and globe-spanning digital travel media
company, Lonely Planet, today announced plans to provide curated content through a new Apple Maps feature announced at Apple’s annual Worldwide Developer Conference.
Explorers, wanderlusters and locals will have expert travel tips available at the tap of their screens through a new series of curated collections from the acclaimed travel authority, available later this year through software updates for iPhone, iPad, and Mac.
Though travel plans remain uncertain, the Lonely Planet collections feature a slew of activities that can be enjoyed solo and outdoors while national lockdowns slowly lift. Insider tips on iconic architecture, spectacular day hikes and scenic running routes will inspire a lifetime of adventure on foot while the world awaits a full travel recovery.
Kicking off with San Francisco travel lovers will be able to get to the heart of The City by the Bay with expertly-crafted recommendations from Lonely Planet’s world-renowned travel connoisseurs. Poised for the transition from cautious exploration to fully-fledged globe-trotting, travelers can discover the city’s impactful public art and vibrant street murals, where to find small slices of urban paradise in the city’s idyllic parks through to the best spots for street-side fare at prize food trucks.
Lonely Planet curated collections in Apple Maps will give users the inside track on several dynamic metropolises, such as New York’s cult-status coffee shops and roasters, tips on satisfying your sweet tooth in LA’s finest ice cream shops, and priceless experiences that can be enjoyed in London for free.
Lonely Planet CEO Luis Cabrera said, “Lonely Planet has always focused on the needs of travelers and we constantly seek ways to improve and ease their experiences. We reach hundreds of millions of travelers each year through our
printed guides, online and through our own mobile products and we are thrilled to offer one more way for people to discover the world around them.”
