Discover Experiences

Lemi is all about discovering places, old and new. We aim to do this through our global users’ word of mouth recommendations. Find a new restaurant to dine in or stop by the new local store—we’ve got all types of places for you to discover!

What is Lemi?

Lemi is a travel app designed to save, map, and share inspired travel recommendations from around the world. We encourage our users to share their experiences for the benefit of locals, travelers, and small businesses to cultivate a positive platform where users can discover genuine and authentic recommendations. Through Lemi, users are inspired to try and support local businesses, whether they are in their own neighborhood or in a new city. In turn, these small and medium enterprises get the chance to thrive through word of mouth recommendations from our global community. It’s a win-win situation for everyone!

Why do I see lists of other people when I first open the app?

Honest and positive recommendations are the heart of Lemi. Our users have created a wide variety of content meant to inspire exploration and encourage new encounters for locals and travelers alike. Filter these lists in our Search tab by city, place, people, post, or list.  

How do I search through Lemi’s content?

Our users create a variety of list types and recommendations from all around the world. Sort through these recommendations by place, people, post or list. 

In the Map and Lists tab: Lemi has two filters in these tabs: City and Category. To search for recommendations, choose a country or city and select appropriate categories. For example, choose “Hong Kong” and filter “Eat” to find all recommended restaurants in Hong Kong.

In Search tab: Search for a keyword and narrow your results down to Places, People, Posts, and Lists. For example, search for a restaurant in Places or a username in People.
