Wikivoyage has grown and developed to become the preeminent online travel resource in the world. I wholeheartedly agree with James A. Unlike most other travel websites, Wikivoyage is free with no advertising.
Sorry to say, this site is nothing but a copy of the very popular 10 year old free wiki, Wikitravel.org -- except with no visitors, so the content is FAR out of date.
I'd rather see an ad or two that have cruddy content. And this site is super cruddy.
I would like to remind WOT users that "WorldTravelller" is an IB employee, the competitor that runs the out-of-date Wikitravel. I think the large number of negative votes on this user's comment speaks for itself.
Wikivoyage is an independent wiki that legally forked from Wikitravel last year with nearly all the volunteer editor community moving to the new site.
Wikivoyage also receives a higher number of edits per day than Wikitravel, and has a larger active editing base, which ensures content is kept up-to-date.
The claims that the content is "cruddy" is simply mud-slinging and shows this user's clear bias and lack of factual evidence.
Wikivoyage is now the most complete, up-to-date and reliable worldwide travel guide on the web. It was created out of the ashes of Wikitravel, which is now facing a slow and painful death to Indian spambots and the like. Wikivoyage is hosted by the Wikimedia Foundation, the same organisation which runs Wikipedia, which guarantees high quality information and pure intentions. There is absolutely no advertising. Wikivoyage is a great site for planning your next trip, while also printing off the guides and taking them with you while you're away!
