About Around Guides

Around Guides is a project to create local photographic travel guides to the world's millions of cities, towns, villages and even some other places, by utilizing social media. Around Guides officially launched in June 2013, and relaunched with a new format in July 2014.
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes. - Marcel Proust
