MANILA - Locals can earn money by curating "digital itineraries" for tourists who intend to visit their cities through the tech startup Glyd, its founder said on Thursday. 

Tourists can request for itineraries or book a local guide using the app, Monika Bhasin, CEO and founder of the Los Angeles-based startup told ANC.

"What I intend to do with Glyd is to really give power to the local people, contribute directly to the tourism industry," Bhasin said. 

Bhasin said she chose the Philippines to test-drive the app because of its "great culture" and the numerous tourist destinations to showcase.
