Content Methodology

Each destination guide and long article takes 19 hours on average to produce and publish. This includes in-depth research, gathering of photos & other resources, writing, proofreading and editing. We work with tourism boards and travel experts who send feedback and corrections to ensure that every published article is as accurate and up to date as possible.

Out team consists of 60 full time and freelance writers, proofreaders, photo editors, researchers, designers, content producers and other staff who make the articles come to life. Articles are reviewed for accuracy about once a year and corrections are welcome.
