“The next generation travel guide will need to be curated, instant and visual.” said Edwyn Chan, co-founder of Spottly, a one-year old social travel app based in Hong Kong. With a seed round of US$850k backed by 500 Startups, Cherubic Ventures and Gobi Partners, Spottly launches its new version with the focus on videos and curated contents.

As a user of the Spottly 1.0, I can go through the former version briefly here. Basically it allows users to explore, create and share interesting travelling spots with photos. The app now, with a more polished look, enables users to share short videos of the beautiful life moments.

Now that people have been living on mobile, the habits of trip planning have been changing as well.
