I was in Taipei, Taiwan visiting my friends Magos and Raul of the TaiwanMex Hostel. Taipei speaks Traditional Chinese, therefore it can be difficult to ask directions or even read the signs, finding a Hostel is work.
Magos told me one of the booking site wanted her to make a video explaining how to get from the Taipei, Main Station to the Hostel. I thought this was an excellent idea for all traveler rooms.
Therefore, I recorded a few videos files and copied them over to Magos computer. I then showed here a free video making programs whereby she could compile or create videos.
"Windows Movie Maker."
I thought this was an excellent idea, and hope the whole travel industry helps me a professional world traveler to find their Hostels easier.
I see informational videos as proof a Hostel cares about the their guest.
