Sometimes business travel means heading out to an exciting City — Beijing, Frankfurt, Dubai, São Paulo, Las Vegas, Sydney, Singapore, Paris, Amsterdam, Toronto, London. However, sometimes it means smaller, more regional trips — London, Edinburgh, Cardiff. Whether you are flying to Newcastle or New York, business travel is only as tedious, or exciting, as you make it. Here are some tips to help discerning business travellers find activities and experiences wherever your work takes you.

You’ve picked your destination, booked your flights and have your calendar marked. But then comes the most daunting task of all: mapping out your perfect itinerary.
A simple internet search yields thousands of results, and everyone has an opinion on the best restaurants, coolest bars and must-see attractions. In New York City alone, there are 26K+ restaurants and bars, 600+ hotels and 100s of top attractions.
When there are literally endless options, the best way to find the right ones is a recommendation from someone you know and trust. Kayak Guides allows users to create and share personalised travel itineraries with co-workers, friends, family and fellow travellers.
With Kayak Guides you can keep track of memorable places and add notes during your trip (to avoid sifting through countless screenshots, phone notes and emails when your future self is trying to remember the name of that coffee shop with the best latte you’ve ever had).
There’s even an interactive map so you can easily see if that Michelin-starred restaurant is near that museum exhibit you’ve been dying to check out.
After your trip, share the link to your Guide with co-workers. KAYAK Guides brings destinations to life through different perspectives. kayak.co.uk/things-to-do
