28) Writing an Itinerary

Itineraries require a little more research than other posts. This is because the suggestions of activities need to make sense and be possible. If you’re writing about a place you’ve never visited before, itineraries will mean lots of Google maps investigation and time calculating.

Itineraries Should Include:

  • Day-by-day stops
  • Activities and attractions
  • Food stops (from street food to restaurants)
  • Where to stay (optional)

How to Write an Itinerary Post

  • First, you need to know how many days your itinerary will include. This may be in the brief, or it will be decided by the keywords.
  • Next, do your research on the stops for each day. Take into account travel times as well as time at each stop. Use Google Maps for this and be sure you’re creating a logical route.
  • Write your stops with valuable information, such as price, opening times, and why you are suggesting it.
  • Add in any other information going in the post (where to stay, where to eat, how to get around – again depending on the brief and/or keywords).
  • Complete your intro and conclusion.

Images, linking, and completing the task will look much the same as other tasks.
