Wikimedia launches Wikivoyage travel site

Posted by David Bernstein


I’m sure you are familiar with the Wikipedia website where you can find information and statistics about just about anything. Wikipedia is an online encyclopedia that allows others to collaborate on its over 24 million articles. As of now there are around 100,000 people contributing to the site and keeping things up to date and fresh.

Now the Wikimedia Foundation who runs Wikipedia is starting a travel site to help travelers get information they need about their destinations online. Wikivoyage has been in beta since September and is now going to be released for everyone to use in the near future.

The site will offer information on things such as sightseeing, tourist attractions, lodging, restaurants and shopping. You will also be able to find information about the area and its history. As of now the site supports 8 languages even though all the translations are not completed.
