From the Dopplr website:

Dopplr is a service for smart international travellers. Dopplr members share personal and business travel plans privately with their networks, and exchange tips on places to stay, eat and explore in cities around the world.

Since Nokia bought Dopplr it's been dead in the water. I'm looking for something that offers similar features to keep track of where I've been, distance travelled, etc. And also maybe Yelp-like features that recommends places to visit.

Suggestions?

I don't know any off the top of my head. If this garners enough interest I'd love to sit down and chat and build something. –  silent1mezzo Jul 6 '11 at 4:27

I have never used Dopplr but from what I see it seems very similar to TripIt, which is a popular option for itinerary tracking/planning. Depending on what place you're visiting, Lonely Planet has a selection of mobile apps for recommendations and places to see. I also use Foursquare to keep a log of places I have visited, and it can sometimes be good for recommendations too.

Agreed - TripIt does basically everything that Dopplr does, and more. TripIt's Pro service may be worth paying for if you travel a lot, particularly by air - they provide automatic notifications of gates/flight changes etc. by SMS/email, amongst other things. –  Andrew Ferrier Jun 19 '12 at 15:02

I used dopplr for a while before switching to tripit. It is basically the same service. Add your travels and your friends can see where you are. The dopplr site looks nicer but lacks the outstanding mail importer of tripit. Just forward a flight booking andit gets into your new or existing travel. Tripit was also first with linkedin integration. I don't know if dopplr is there yet. Probably not given their new owner structure....

I don't know Dopplr either, but based on your description I would say Google places and Google Latitude is doing some of what you want.
