world wide travel guide

A wiki travel guide! Wikitravel.org is creating a free, complete, up-to-date, and reliable world-wide travel guide. So far they have several thousand destination guides and other articles written and edited by Wikitravellers from around the globe (some of whom just sit at home describing what's good about their surroundings).

One of the more interesting project goals is to create destination guides which are useful as print-outs, i.e. not always linking to sub-pages, but distilling the most useful information about each travel destination. For a good example see the "destination of the month" on the main page

In April 2006, Wikitravel and World66, both open content wiki travel guides, were acquired by Internet Brands, Inc., an American company that operates a number of consumer information websites. [1] [http://www.corporate-ir.net/ireye/ir_site.zhtml?ticker=27587
