Why we’re launching Yubee

The Eiffel Tower in Paris. The Coliseum in Rome. Times Square in New York. The Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. The Sydney Opera House.

What do these things have in common?

They’re all among the most visited tourist attractions in the world. They’re icons of travel and tourism. And they might be “must see” places for anyone visiting those cities. But there’s something else they have in common, or rather, something that none of them do:

Provide an authentic experience about the cultures they represent (okay, maybe Times Square is the most American thing ever, but still).

To be sure, they (and other attractions like them) can be majestic to see. Standing on top of the Eiffel Tower to see the entire city of Paris stretching out in every direction can be breathtaking. But they’re also hardcore tourist traps. They’re crowded almost year round. They’re sometimes expensive to visit. And sometimes, they’re even a little disappointing. They’re often not reflective of the local culture, or anything authentic at all.

Here’s the good news. None of these tourist traps are the only thing to see and do in their respective cities. In fact, no matter where you go in the world, there’s millions of things to see, eat, and experience that often go unnoticed or hidden from your typical traveler. But finding them is the real challenge. Too many websites and travel apps today offer the same boring things to do, top ten lists, etc. And finding the really good stuff can be time consuming.

That’s where Yubee comes in.

We’re launching Yubee to bring you the hard-to-find, out-of-the-way attractions, authentic cultural experiences, hidden gems of restaurants, and the coolest accommodations. All discovered by real people. We carefully curate content written and photographed by adventurous travelers who know there’s more to life than tourist attractions.

And we deliver that to you in a simple and accessible platform that makes it easy to find the content you need to make your next trip an unforgettable adventure.

What kind of content will you find on Yubee? You’ll find that cool, urban hike through a tucked away neighborhood of Paris. A graffiti tour of New York City. An underground club. A hole-in-the wall restaurant with the best local cuisine. A cool, little country inn that serves homemade food grown by the owners. A forest hike to a magnificent waterfall.

Our mission is to ensure that travelers like you never have a boring, disappointing trip ever again.

Using Yubee’s streamlined format and powerful content filters, you’ll find whatever experience you’re looking for from trusted travelers who we’ve vetted.

What’s more, Yubee isn’t driven by advertising (unlike many other travel resources), which means that our content isn’t tainted or influenced by money. Instead, for a nominal fee, you get access to all the content you need to fuel your travels.

It’s a big world with lots of amazing places to eat, drink, stay, and see. Isn’t it time you stopped scrolling and started traveling?
