Best Trip Choices uses a simple yet highly revealing questionnaire to identify which of six 'travel personalities' you most closely match. After taking the quiz to determine your type, you can drill down to identify destinations and activities that BestTripChoices thinks are suited to your preferences. (You're on your own for booking, though.)

Similarly, TravelMuse, Tripbase and Triporati present destination suggestions based on your interests (which you identify on supplied lists or tags); TravelMuse and Tripbase also factor in your budget, and TravelMuse asks you how much time you're willing to spend en route. All three sites provide reviews, maps, and other content, including links to booking sites.

These sites offer some specialised features, too. Triporati's Facebook app lets you find friends who share specific travel-related interests. Tripbase returns costs for its suggested destinations. And TravelMuse provides tools.
