What is a listing?
Listing: A listing on BestViews is a page for a place such as an attraction or a business and most BestViews listings are free and any user can submit a qualified listing. While most popular attractions are allowed to have a listing on BestViews, only the businesses, such as Hotels, Restaurants etc., which offer a View, from their properties, to one of these top popular attractions, will be allowed to have a listing page on BestViews. In addition, some businesses themselves could be popular travel destinations themselves or popular photo-worthy places among travel influencers. Such businesses are also allowed to have a listing page on BestViews.
