Bing recently introduced what they call “Destination Pages” for city searches. A city’s destination page will give searchers information about events, weather, flights, news, etc about that city.
This takes all the relevant information about a destination and places it on one easy to navigate page so that travelers will find it easy to research a city and plan for their forthcoming trip in advance. It gives information on the main things travelers need to know before visiting a city including flight information, a list of hotels in the area, popular attractions, local events, local news, civic photos, a map and a weather overview, all in one place.
According to David Lindheimer, “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.”
This could really turn out to be a useful tool for travelers. If Bing decides to add information about discount flight tickets, that would make Destination Pages a gold mine for businesses. What do you think?
