Have you seen Wikivoyage?
Wikivoyage is a "free worldwide travel guide that anyone can edit."
Launched in December 2006, it is a project to create a complete,
up-to-date and reliable travel guide. The in-depth information is
gathered through the collaboration of Wikivoyagers, interested
people from around the globe willing to share their knowledge.
Each travel destination has its own page of information. Click on the Discussion tab to go to a
talk page where you can read notes and comments about that location. Of course, you are free to edit and contribute your own knowledge. Have a travel question? Ask in the Tourist Office page of Wikivoyage, post your question on the talk page, or visit the Travellers' Pub for more answers.
Try Wikivoyage to explore your next destination and to share your travel knowledge!
Tested and recommended by our librarians.
