Informative Thailand Website with Business Dirrectory

I recently posted a very complex travel website that I wanted build. I was getting bids for $3,000 and that is more cash then I have for this project so I decided to make a lot of changes.

Summary: I want a website about thailand that will allow me to have information about all areas/towns/cities and also a busienss dirrectory built into it.


It will be a website about all things Thailand. It will be for people traveling to Thailand to come and look and read about each and every place in the country. This should be pretty easy to set up this part of the website. I want to have people be able to browse the website by area (north thailand, south thailand, etc) or by activity (beaches, mountains, jungle, city, historic location, etc) and also browse via actual location names. They can click on an area, then choose a provence, then a city and read all about that location.

It should be very easy to navigate from one location to another.

Each location will have TONS of information on it that I will enter. I will have detailed information for each area, from top level locations such as North info, southern info, information on each provence, and highly detailed information on each city.

When I add a city to the website, I imagine that I can assign classifiers to it. So if I add a city I might choose "city" "Mountains" "Jungle" "beaches" etc to it so that when someone clicks on "beaches" they will get a listing with all of the places that have that classifer. This might be accomplished using some kind of tagging system that only the admin can use. I also imagine that each location will have little icons representing these classifiers on their main information page. So when someone is looking at a specific location they can see right away little icons representing the various features.

Each area will also have a photo gallery that I assign to it. For each place I might upload 10 photos and they will display some in the description and there will be a link where people can see other photos of this location.

I will also have a small map with a star showing where this location actually is within Thailand.

Each location will have specific information that should be neatly organized and displayed the same across all sections of the website.

For a given location I might have:


--General Info




--Getting Around

etc etc

This information should be entered seperately by me when I am adding a location so the website can organize it all neatly.

The other major feature of the website is a business dirrectory. This is a huge portion of the website and should be nicely intergrated to look like a mojor portion of the website, and not a seperate thing.

I will add businesses into proper categories like "bar" "resturant" "hotel" etc and also choose which city that they are located in.

So If I am looking at the Bangkok page, I can click and see all businesses that are located in this city. On the main info page under each section I also want to be able to see businesses that match up. So under "bars" on the main city page I will have entered some general information about bars in this location. Then I should be able to choose how many businesses have a small box under this section. I imagine a small pic and a breif description with a link to a business profile that I will edit and people can read about this business. So under the resturante section you will read out general info and then you will get a teaser of 3-5 resturants that you can click and read more about.

I want to be able to choose which ones and how many are displayed under these sections. Businesses who pay more to me will be listed here so I need full control.

Also, from the main page someone might click on "Bars" then they will click on a location such as "Bangkok" and be taken to a page with info and listings of businesses that meet that criteria.

I will be the only one adding and editing businesses so they dont need to access the info at all. When adding a business to the directory I want to choose their location (city) that they will show up in on the directory, add a description of the business, and upload a few photos. I also need space to enter advertising info about each of these businesses. Like, I might charge a business $20 for 1 year of listing in my directory, so I want to choose the date that I added them, choose how long they have paid for, and also want a text box where I can write down how much I charged them and any other info we discussed. I want to enter an email address that I use to contact this advertiser and all of these email addresses should be entered into a private newsletter system where I can email all of my advertisers are once. When a business pays for 12 months of advertising I want the website to notifiy me in the admin section which advertisers need to renew their subscription. I should see a list of who need to pay up again and I can decide If I want to remove their listing. I should be able to remove a business without actually deleting their info, incase I want to add them back in again after they pay.

Those are the two main ideas for the website. Extensive info on each area that is easily browsed by various things, and a business directory.

I also have some other things I want implemented:

-Event system

I want a calender in a sidebar that people can click on and see what is going on and when it is happening. What I imagine is someone might click on a month and see all the events that I have loaded. They can also narrow it down and see only events that are happeneing in the "North THailad" or even in a specif city like "Bangkok" An event might be related to a specific business and link up with them. For example, a bar in Bangkok might be having a party. I would add that event and match it up with that business so people can see that the event is at BObs bar or whatever. When viewing a business in the directory people can also see if there are any events comming up for this business.

-Newsletter System

In addition to a private newsletter system just for business in the directory, I want website viewers to easily enter their email address and sign up for travel tips and such that I can email out


I want to have surveys for my website viewers. Im sure this is just a simple plugin.

The website will also feature stories and articles that I will write every few days. These should be displayed on the main page and radomly rotated for viewers to read. News may have a specific location like "Bangkok" so when on the Bangkok page you can see some related news. The main page will rotate news from all locations and also stories that I submit.

The original plan had tons of more features including community netowrking and such but I have trimmed it back so I can make it much more affordable.
