The smarting traveling application is designed to help the user to make traveling plans in an unfamiliar destination by showing nearby the points of interests (POI) from the user’s entered a position. The application uses a planning algorithm to help users find the best itineraries during their vacation time. We deploy a static planning algorithm and an A* Search and heuristic algorithm to evaluate. We define a good itinerary as one that takes the users between points of interests swiftly, visits the best locations first, and manages travel time in between. The application uses Google Places API to fetch a list of POIs to allow a user to generate a plan based on each destination of choice.
