Abstract

Technology is finding its feet in the travel industry in last few years. This advancement in the field of technology has led to endless sources of tourism related information. Social media like Facebook is one of such sources. People share their experience and reviews on Facebook on a daily basis. This paper proposes a system which automates the dreaming stage, i.e., suggesting a destination to the tourist. Our main contribution is suggesting destination to the tourist by studying his Facebook profile. A separate recommendation system is designed which suggests destination using collaborative filtering i.e. based on other tourist's experience. The user profile is then compared with other tourist profiles. The recommendation is provided based on choices made by the other user whose profile matches with the target user.
