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.
Honestly, travellerspoint.com is the best I have come across. Some others include:
couchsurfing.com - great for contacting people living in a country
Great topic! All these others (with the exception of couchsurfing) are filled with advertising and confusing layouts, I honestly have to tip my hat at those at travellerspoint, so easy and so much info. Look forward to seeing some other posts and maybe some great undiscovered resources.
the thorntree forum on lonelyplanet is pretty good... sometimes i get frustrated on here, because people seem to just post useless comments to get posting points... so the thorntree can be a nice change from that... there are a ton of people on it and a lot of well seasoned travellers, but they also have a lot of the advertising etc.
i've also used bootsnall.com and poorbuthappy.com
AND travellerspoint!! it seriously is my favorite also.
