The study on online tourism portals and geographical maps has become a common research endeavor. Maps consisting of countries are digitally available to enable location-based searching, getting directions and information of places. Human beings are depending on the widespread of technologies such as Global Positioning System(GPS) to search places and to get directions due to the vast development and changes at certain areas. Many places use similar names that cause confusion when searching for a specific location. Sometimes, there are too many results returned including irrelevant results. In this paper, we discuss a simple method to search for tourist locations based on keywords, GPS coordinates and specified parameters. The design and implementation of a one-stop tourism portal will also be explained.
