Get Hidden Gems from NanoWhat Creators

City explorers are looking for travel tips from real local insiders. Your map of recommended spots to eat, see, and play can help curious travellers discover your city like a local.


Nanowhat map Guidelines

Cool Places, not Tourist Spots

Creators share maps on NanoWhat because they have a unique point of view. NanoWhat gives map makers the freedom to curate adventures that are authentic to you. But we do have a few criteria that make our platform special.

Every destination has certain ‘Must See’ attractions. And don’t get us wrong, we also love visiting the Eiffel Tower and Disneyland. But that’s not what NanoWhat is about. When adding locations to your map, ask yourself ‘Can anyone find this with a simple Google search?’ If the answer is ‘yes’ it’s probably not worth adding to your map. 

We celebrate the weird, quirky and unusual moments in life. They tend to be the ones that stick in our memories and sometimes even change the way we see the world. Don’t be afraid to add places that are a little bit funky or off the beaten path.

Are you Ohio’s biggest anime fan? Or have you tasted every cup of coffee within a 100 mile radius of your home? Share the obsessions you’re most passionate about. Travellers want maps from real people, who love something so much they want to shout about it from the rooftop!

Stop searching for the best social media platform to make money.
Earn cash by converting your content into collections of hidden gems.
