There are dozens of websites and apps out there that are capable of serving as a digital travel guide to a new region, but few of them are as engaging to use as the 'Sure' Facebook Messenger bot.

This smart travel bot is acts like a well-informed local that is able to introduce travelers to all the best cafes, bars and restaurants in a region. As well as being able to highlight hotspots that are worth checking out, the conversational bot also suggests its favorite dishes and makes character-filled quips like "I like Green Heart Foods because they are an antidote to the standard American diet."

Currently, Sure is a Facebook Messenger bot that's only operating in the San Francisco and Copenhagen areas.
