We've had the option to view accommodation listings on a map for a while on Travellerspoint, but it's been quite basic.

Not anymore.

We've fully revamped the map view and made it (hopefully) much easier to use. And just a little more fun as well.

Try it out on the Amsterdam page for example. Click the Map View tab to get started. You can then enter the address of wherever you want to be near and all results will be resorted.

One nifty feature is an integration with Google Maps Directions; when you click on a property it will actually tell you how many minutes walk away the property is from where you want to be. And show the proposed walking route on the map. If walking's not your thing, you can change that to show driving distance / time as well.

Give it a go and let us know what you think. There's bound to be a bug or two, so let us know if you encounter one ;)

The list of properties on the right could stand having a cursor: pointer property, and/or a :hover effect to make it more obvious that you can click them. Other that that things look good!
