Hi everyone,

We recently launched the first version of a new and free online travel service on http://www.stay.com - all powered by the latest version of Yii Framework :)

Hope you like it!

@menatep: Yes. I'm really glad to say that Qiang Xue (qiang), Wei Zhou (wei), Michael Härtl (mike) and Tobias Munk (schmunk) from the Yii/PRADO community are all a part of our development team and are doing a fantastic job :) In addition we have some user interface people and range of content editors.

@mbi: 3-4 months development time so far depending on how I count (for the whole site including a content management system - also built with Yii). This was after the main site design was ready. Much of the time was also spent on refining content and integration with hotel providers.

We started out with Zend Framework but after the switch to Yii Framework we have never looked back or to the side.

We also utilize Lithron (http://wiki.lithron.de/ - a really cool CSS2 compatible PDF-renderer on top of PDFLib) for rendering your personal travel guide. Lithron is Tobias Munk's little kiddo :) If you are serious about rendering sophisticated PDF files from PHP I can strongly recommend PDFLib/Lithron.

Even though http://www.stay.com is very young I think it already is a strong showcase for Yii Framework.

We already contribute back to Yii Framework with bugfixes here and there and will hopefully share some cool extensions later.

Thought I'd finally test it. Pretty nice. I imagine this is a type of site that really moves with the economy (more money=more vacations).

BTW, three links on the left side of this page are broken:

And we're back with a total rework of http://www.stay.com :) (see also: http://www.stay.com/about )

Stay.com is all about delivering a simplified experience around getting ideas about your city vacation and allowing users to create their personal city guides.

We've worked hard to create a simplified user interface that works equally good for both experienced and regular users. With just a few clicks you can discover some of the best attractions, restaurants and hotels in some of the most popular cities around the world.

We've started out with some of the most popular cities around the world and we'll work hard to increase the number of cities we will cover.

We also plan to go mobile. That includes both a mobile version of the web experience, with the ability to create and browse your collection of items, and dedicated apps for popular phones like iPhone and Android.

One of the best things with Stay.com is that it's an ad-free experience that allows users to create their own personal travel guides. In order to deliver an ad-free service we have created our own hotel booking engine which perfectly sits within the concept. Instead of getting ads from other websites we have created a recommendation engine for hotels so we can recommend you some good deals based on what you've added to your guide.

Our enhanced version of Stay.com even got some nice press coverage recently:

Stay.com admittedly makes things very easy and quite fun for the 50 cities it currently features on the site

Stay.com Reboots Travel

You can find travel guides and tips online, you can buy travel guides in bookstores, but Stay.com offers you the chance to not only browse the travel guides of others but create and share your own.

- Jason Fitzpatrick, Lifehacker

I hope you like the new version :)

Any feedback are welcome!

I am check it out,
try to book hotel in my country.. and woow! this one is pretty amazing.
this make sure, stay.com is the high barometer product of yiiframework.

although the design quite simple(sorry, just my perseption), but the feature is up to date.

i have see many example site of other framework powered,
but never seen something complex like stay.com feature(eccept Zend F).

wonder, how much database and table stay.com have.
well in about page, they claim over 100.000 record.

the one i really curious is stay.com database shcema. Posted Image
