Last week we told you about the natural language capabilities that make it faster to find and book flights in Bing.
Today we are releasing features that make it easier to research and plan trips to over 3000 cities across the world.
The new feature assembles all of the relevant information about a destination on one page so you can research a city before you go. The top things you need to plan your trip – including flight information, a list of hotels in the area, popular attractions, local events, local news, civic photos, a map and a weather overview – are now in one place.
Click into each of the sections to see a full list or gallery relevant to the city. If you’re searching for a local city, Bing can recognize that you’re close and serve up results accordingly. Let’s say you’re thinking of travelling to Miami this winter. Type Miami, FL into the search box, and click “Explore City” to check out the destination city.
- 3000+ cities around the world.
- Page content is contextual based on user location.
- Rich content include events, news, images, videos, weather, flights, and hotels.
Wherever you’re headed, Bing’s new destination page is a great place to start!
