A Framework of Personalized Travelling Information Services for Thailand
Planning each comprehensive trip is regarded as a complicated and time-consuming task which includes the process starting from searching specific tourist information to planning an itinerary in unfamiliar areas. In response to the decision making challenges that tourists may encounter in planning a trip or discovering a destination, this paper proposes an integrated framework for a system supporting tourists in Thailand. The aim of the framework is to provide a service that considers data from a variety of sources, including static and social data, and then recommends points of interest (POI) and itineraries for POI, based on the requirements and interests of the user. The framework consists of three components: a personalized POI recommendation engine, an itinerary planner, and a mobile application. Together these form the foundation of a personalized travelling information system for Thailand. This paper outlines the basic framework and provides a discussion on the potential issues encountered.
