Will all towns and cities eventually be available?

No, not all towns and cities will be available. The intention is to focus on international cities, which are major business and leisure destinations, like those listed above.

To a large extent; however, which cities and when they will be added will be based on demand from Eight Spots users.

Can I leave you some feedback (good or bad)?

Yes! Please e-mail Eight Spots.

I've submitted a review for a city, but why isn't there a stamp for it in my passport?

Stamps are only issued once you've nominated a go to spot in a particular city.

Where do the venue photos come from?

Ultimately, photos are uploaded by Eight Spots users. However, when venues have only recently been added to Eight Spots and there are no or few user photos, the photos are supplemented with Instagram photos for that location. Instagram photos can be differentiated from Eight Spots photos, as they're attributed to Instagram and the Instagram user to which they belong.

Please note that Eight Spots uses the Instagram API to obtain these photos, but Eight Spots is not endorsed or certified by Instagram.
