Chittagong is a very beautiful city located in Bangladesh. It is the port city and it has a rich culture. But the saddest matter is, many people don't know about it. It can be the next holiday destination if it can get enough attention because of its various unique culture like Mezbaan(a tradition of food, includes beef and rice), local tribes, mountains located in Bandarban and the longest sea beach in the world.
What it does
The website is a repository of images and stories. It consists of blogs where people can share where they visited. It has a members section where people can ask for help where to go next or if they were lost.
How I built it
I built it with WordPress. It also has BuddyPress for members login and chat.
Challenges I ran into
I wasn't sure how to put on maps here. Because the maps plugins or codes were not actually working. So I had to try out different techniques.Like in the post "Kaptai Tour", you will I added a random map using TravelMap which was new. People can use it and post related blogs here.
Accomplishments that I'm proud of
Being a resident of Chittagong, so many people failed to announce the beauty and elegance of Chittagong. But I was surprised to see that because it has so much to offer to tourists and industrialists. I am glad that I was able to recognize its rich heritage.
What I learned
I learned how to sort things in a simpler way. Like a blog could be easily made. Blogs about travelling are also available. But a specific city website to know more about it? I think that's what made me re-think about it.
What's next for Cityguide
There's actually a lot to go. I tried to keep it simple for now. But in near future, we hope that we will be able to turn on GPS and whenever a tourist is on spot, there will be automatically generated nearest tourist spots!
