Real Apps for Tourism: Maui Tropical Plantation
85% of international leisure travelers use their smartphones abroad.
– Techie Traveler, 2012
App use by tourists has increased exponentially.
“Offering the Guidebook app brands us as progressive.”
Albert Boyce runs the Maui Tropical Plantation, a one-of-a-kind tourist destination. You can visit the plantation to walk through lush tropical grounds with plant and animal life, listen to live music, play on ziplines, and take a tram tour.
The Maui Tropical Plantation website prompts visitors to download the Guidebook app before they arrive, and signs with the app instructions are posted throughout the park. “These days everyone has a smartphone,” Albert says. “We host cruise ship guests, foreign visitors, locals–everyone comes to the plantation.”
QR codes posted in color-coded zones throughout the park allow visitors to enjoy a live walking tour with vivid descriptions of the plant life.
“Guidebook is dynamic, easy, and you never have outdated brochures,” says Albert.
