For sheer volume, check out thorntree.lonelyplanet.com. You would have no hope of ever reading every thread on that board.

Heck no. I don't actually post or read TT (as the regulars call the thorntree) much anymore. There is no sense of community there, and you are WAY likely to get flamed for posting an "obvious" question.

TP has a great sense of community and a good volume of post that you can actually get questions answered. I read another travel site Aardvark travel which has a good sense of community, but is a little slow.

There's quite a few good travel websites out there, it depends somewhat on what you are after :) Personally, I don't like the Thorntree that much as it's so big. I used to post a good bit on Aardvark, but don't have the time anymore to handle more than just keeping an eye on TP and posting here

I like a lot of the photography sites, but they're generally not travel related. Then there's quite a few where you can start diaries/blogs but they offer little else. There's others that go down a similar path as us. Bootsnall for one, but I get confused visiting their site since they have so many redirects to other links/sites and so forth. If you can figure your way around it, it's got some good travel writing though. One site I recently found which I really like (more for concept and some of the technologies done than anything else) is world66.com. It's a wiki type site so everyone can add information to the travel guide at anytime.

I find airfare booking sites get more and more confusing every day and now stick to one that I know is good from norway, as well as the STA and airline sites themselves. I book accommodation here on TP and generally find it includes more than enough for when/where I am going, if booking in advance (plus word on the streets is there's another 30 000+ properties soon to be added... ). For information, I don't really look further than TP, or to specific country tourism board websites. The commercial ones b**w!
