The company stated that the beta version of the mobile website has already attracted more than one million unique monthly visitors, more than any other mobile website in the travel industry.

On TripAdvisor’s mobile site, travellers can find nearby restaurants, hotels and attractions, and directions to them – all with the smartphone’s GPS capabilities.
