Every day people Pin about 1.5 million places, and now there are more than 750 million Pins of these destinations on Pinterest. Pinterest have now taken the first step towards helping people turn their travel inspiration into reality with Place Pins.
Place Pins have been designed to combine the beautiful imagery of a travel magazine with the utility of a map online so you can share it with friends. You can access them from anywhere on your smartphone aswell, which means you can find new places on the go and even get directions to places.
With the inclusion of extra details such as the address and phone number on the Pin, you can easily pull up useful info on a weekend adventure or before a night out.
Creating a board of Place Pins is easy. Just select Add a map when you create a new board or Edit an existing board’s settings to Add a map. After that, you can map all of your new and existing Pins on the board to help plan your next adventure.
Pintrest have asked some of the best names in travel to create inventive boards to inspire you. See thier collection of place boards on this special feed, which will give you more ideas as you make your own. You’ll see boards like:
