Planning an international trip is hard. We know - we've had to plan many. There is too much information online, and it's hard to decide whom to trust. Most travel guides quickly become out-of-date, and are influenced by the opinion of their authors, who have financial incentive to make places sound wonderful and enticing. That's why we created TripHappy, a travel guide built by applying statistical analysis to over 20,000 traveler itineraries. Because our data comes from real traveler itineraries, our information is more up-to date and less biased than traditional travel guides. We're able to provide users with information like the most popular cities in a country, sample routes, what most travelers do, and how long travelers typically stay in each city.
We're a Ruby on Rails application, with a Coffeescript front-end, hosted on Heroku. We integrate with over 10 external APIs.
