Discovering and recommending points of interest are drawing more attention to meet the increasing demand from personalized tours. In this paper, we propose and evaluate a new fuzzy-based system for decision of sightseeing spots considering different conditions. In our system, we considered four input parameters: Ambient Temperature (AT), Air Quality (AQ), Noise Levle (NL) and Current Number of People (CNP) to decide the sightseeing spots Visit or Not Visit (VNV). We evaluate the proposed system by computer simulations. From the simulations results, we conclude that when CNP is increased, the VNV is increased and when the AT is around \(18\,^\circ \mathrm{C}{-}26\,^\circ \mathrm{C} \), the VNN is the best. But when AQ and NL are increased, the VNV is decreased. The simulation results have shown that the proposed system has a good performance and can choose good sightseeing spots.
