The rapid advancement of information and commnnication technologies has being shaping up a new value chain for tourism. Some travel organizers are getting less profit from the standard package tours because of the shift in the structure of tourism. This is because, nowadays travelers or tourists especially backpackers are no longer depending on the travel organizers. People nowadays have no more time to plan their trip and go for a package for a few days time. Thus, whenever these busy people have a little leisure time for a vacation, they will just pack their things into the backpacker, and go for an unplanned vacation. Before going to a trip, they will first find some information via tourism-related website so that they will have an idea on where to go. Once they have the idea, they just go for that trip without knowing they might be facing some kind of problem such as lack of money, getting lost, having no idea on what are the tourists attraction at a new place which can cause them to have a difficult time during the trip occurred. This is because tourism websites are not very informative to meet the travelers' expectations and needs. This research is aims to design and develop a Mobile Travel Guide for Budget Travelers to assist the travelers especially for the backpackers in information seeking and searching through mobile phone. The system will help travelers by giving a suggestion list of possible places of interest where the tourists can go within a limited budget. Basically, the system will provide information needed by tourist such as accommodation, places of interest, transportation, travel and destination organizations. The system will be developed by using a System Development Life Cycle Model which a throwaway prototyping will be used in designing the system. The system will use Java 2 Micro Edition (J2ME) platform where it has been used in most of mobile phone available in the market. This paper reports on the researches that have been made for the development stages and the as well as the system architecture of the system. The report also included the final results of the findings as well as the recommendations that have been made for the future enhancement.
