What I would be really interested in knowing is what are travel sites to do feel the Best of the Best, that is, ones that you always use and rely on when planning travel. You can list them so that I may add up to my collections.
Thanks for your help.
I would be interested in finding out what sites others visit as well.
I use the obvious ones, the sites of the travel guide writers:
IMO - you are posting on my favourite and the best travel website on the net!
I actually just found Responsible Travel this week . . . it's based out of the UK, but it seems that if you want to get a flight from somewhere else, that's fine.
Hear hear for (semi)sustainable travel!
I have a huge list of bookmarked sites, all categorized by country or region. The sites I visit are specific to the area I have questions about. But here are a few that have never let me down:
Free home stays: http://www.hospitalityclub.org/
Train travel: http://www.seat61.com/
Hostels in China: http://www.cheap-hostels-in.com/china.htm
Intrepid - for stealing route info : http://www.intrepidtravel.com/
The feds to check on the latest scare: http://www.state.gov/
Important WC site: http://www.thebathroomdiaries.com/
How/what to pack: http://www.onebag.com/
World airports: http://www.airlinequality.com/Airports/AirportA-Z.htm
Maps of everywhere: http://www.lib.utexas.edu/maps/map_sites/cities_sites.html
Embassies of the world: http://www.embassyworld.com/
Those are the general info sites - I have hundreds more but no time to list them all.
As well as TP I tend to look at A) tripadvisor and B) Virtual Tourist.
