SINGAPORE, March 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Global travel tech company, ButlerTech, today announces the launch of new travel app, CityButler; a comprehensive destination guide.

By featuring only handpicked, top quality businesses, retailers and attractions, CityButler offers a unique guide for travellers looking to get the best possible experience from their city exploration.

The app is designed with the traveller in mind, allowing users to easily navigate and book activities or services in the chosen city. On selecting a category, the user can view ratings of each business as well as reviews of their services. From local SIM cards to transport and excursions, the app also allows users to seamlessly order or book anything they might need during their city stay in clear and simple steps.

"Every business, attraction, tour operator, retailer or service provider that features on the CityButler app has been handpicked by our local experts to ensure each traveller can plan and enjoy the best possible city experience," said Mike Mazza, CEO and Founder of ButlerTech Group. "Should any user need help or additional advice during their city stay, there is also a support chat section to message one of our assistants. Travellers can now rely on one single app for everything they might need during their city visit."

Utilising geo-location, the CityButler app enables users to locate nearby businesses. Users can also tailor the app to their interests by selecting a calendar of relevant events or by browsing the top picks in the city, such as best restaurants or night spots, to bookmark interests and create a 'Favourites' list.

Currently, CityButler features eight cities; Bangkok, London, Manchester, Melbourne, Pattaya, Phuket, Singapore and Sydney. Further destinations in Asia, Europe and the USA are to be added in the coming months including Hong Kong, Manila, Kuala Lumpur, Milan, Rome and Chiang Mai. ButlerTech aims to populate the app with 100 worldwide destinations within its first year of inception.

Following launch, CityButler will enhance the app by offering additional services including online bill payments, insurance purchases and daily deals for consumers.

CityButler is now free to download in the App Store and is available to use on desktop via www.citybutler.co. The Android and tablet versions will be available by the end 2016.
