Laguna Hills, CA (PRWEB) October 8, 2004 -
TeleMapics LLC, a privately held business focused on travel, tourism and location based services, announced today the launch of its ThereArePlaces travel website. Available at http://www.ThereArePlaces.com, the site is focused on international travel and is designed to help would-be travelers gain confidence while learning how to travel safe and well with a minimum of effort. The site also contains both general travel information and unique local information for destinations within each country.
ThereArePlaces.com was developed by Dr. Mike Dobson, a travel industry professional and avid traveler, who led the development of some of the worldÂs best-selling travel publications during his 13 years as an executive with Rand McNally & Company. Dobson, a PhD in Geography, was also a professor of geography at the State University of New York at Albany, and has spent his professional career helping connect people to places.
ÂThereArePlaces is the ultimate travel-planning website,Â said Dobson. ÂOur articles are based on years of travel experience. We witnessed almost every mistake in the book and learned how to avoid them. Now we want to share what we learned with other travelers.Â
ThereArePlaces.com offers two distinctive guide sections: Information Guides and Destination Guides.
The Information Guides offer more than 200 how-to-travel articles organized by thirteen travel topics. If someone is looking for information about travel planning, lodging or guidebooks, this is where theyÂll find it. They can also find tips on safety and security, shopping, health care, as well as many other topics related to international travel like applying for passports and understanding foreign currency.
The siteÂs Destination guides cover thirty-six of the most popular tourist destinations worldwide, principally European countries Â with China, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, and Mexico thrown in for good measure. This section outlines travel and tourism related details, as well as a concise Âfact bookÂ overview of the country, its history and geography.
ÂWe try to save the user time by providing an easy-to-follow rating system on the Destination Guide home page,Â said Design Director Bonnie Dobson. ÂBy simply clicking on their country of choice, the user is conveniently linked to a page describing the most popular destinations that country has to offer. We also include some beautiful photography, which highlights many of the key sites at each destination. Our goal at ThereArePlaces is to ensure that travelers find everything they need to know to have a safe and carefree vacation.Â
The team at ThereArePlaces considers it to be ultimate travel website due to its combination of high quality information on how and where to travel. The information is presented in a manner that makes it quick and easy to find. The site uses gorgeous photographs, detailed maps and beautiful watercolors to give the readers a sense of the beauty that lies outside their doors. Finally, the site features TravelZine, a bi-weekly travel magazine that provides up-to-date information about the world of travel.
Primarily designed for those ÂnewÂ to the world of travel, ThereArePlaces also contains information of value to all travelers. During the months ahead, the site will be augmented with expanded content, new functionality and even more reasons to pack your bags and get on the road.
ThereArePlaces is not a travel service provider. The site does not sell travel goods, make travel reservations, or provide ticketing services. As put by the CompanyÂs president ÂOur commitment is to provide travel advice that might help you to take the journey of a lifetime.Â
ThereArePlaces is a property of TeleMapics, LLC, a business focused on travel, tourism, and other location based services.
