    In this work we investigate decentralized content exchange among tourists who are mostly strangers, depicts irregular movement patterns and most likely not to have any prior social relationship or difficult to establish any in a tourist spot. We incorporate user's interest, trustworthy online recommendations, and place-centric information to facilitate content exchange in such tourist destinations. The proposed administrator selection policy considers stay probability in activities, connectivity among nodes and their available resources. We have done extensive simulation using network simulator NS3 on a popular tourist spot in Australia that provides a number of activities. Our proposed approach shows promising results in exchanging contents among users measured in terms of content hit and delivery success rate as well as latency. The success rate is comparable to those reported in the literature for cases where social relationship exist and nodes follow regular predictable movement patterns.
