Our Client and His Project Requirements
Based in Saudi Arabia, our client is a professional photographer who was looking to book a chalet or resort in Saudi Arabia. However, he searched on the web, found the complete list of chalets and resorts and then started calling one-by-one.

Realizing this problem, he decided to develop a mobile app like Airbnb to book chalets, hotels, resorts, villas, and camps. He wanted to build an app similar to Airbnb so that users can view, check and book chalets from the comfort of their home and seat back relax to enjoy their holidays.
