I like the concept for your website, pretty good idea.

I think you might want to change some of the pictures that come up for the cities when you search for places. I looked up a few cities and the picture in the corner seemed a bit pixelated or scaled oddly.

Good concept and functionality though.

Great site! the YOW looks like it has been resized.. it needs to be sharper or crisper.

Great concept and it's one of those I WISH I COULD think of something like that

Ay caramba!, what to say? Looks you have think in everything about the design.

Just one thing, try to envolve your visitors to keep them with you. Make the first page a "you-must-be-here" orientation.

Greetings!.

I like the concept and the idea behind the site. That's a great idea and I'm sure it's going to grow. It certainly is an original idea, at least I think so.

The layout is clean and loads pretty fast but I'd say it's pretty empty and not very appealing to the eye. I agree with some people to change some pictures of the cities, high rises, the city's horizons...

All in all I'd give you a C+ or maybe a B on your site design. I suggest you don't use tables.

You also have 31 errors on your site. I suggest that you attempt to fix them.

Good luck on your site.

nice looking site. good ideas too. a good place for people exchanging travel experience. maybe on the empty space down there you could show 3 or 4 short selected member's travel videos.

I like the spartanly layout of your design...sometimes less is more. Imho, you don't need to change a thing. Plus, you have come up with a great and original idea. Your site should do quite well.
