Your Best Fit


Any visitor to New York City can upgrade their experience with some focused local advice. The thing is, opinions here can change in a New York minute. Enter Localike, a travel service that’s constantly being updated by its roving scouts. Simply plug in details about your personality and interests, and, hey presto, a customised itinerary, built by your own consultant, will soon arrive in your in-box. The options in the online ‘tell us about yourself’ form are probably the most detailed we’ve seen from any similar platform: you can request to see the Big Apple as a late-sleeping bargain-hunter with a penchant for Vietnamese food, or an athletic fan of rooftop bars and literary history. We road-tested the service to see where we might end up on a future trip to the Big Apple: eyes right for our results.
