Wikivoyage, your free world-wide travel guideWikivoyage is a relaunched project connected to Wikipedia; it is a project to create a free, complete, up-to-date, and reliable world-wide travel guide. It is built in collaboration by Wikivoyagers from around the globe, with the same basic idea as Wikipedia.
: Free, up-to-date world-wide travel guide.
Wikivoyage started on 10th December 2006 and relaunched under Wikimedia on January 15, 2013. The project is built with the spirit of sharing knowledge that makes travel so enjoyable. It is a big difference from its main competitor, which is WikiTravel, a commercial wiki guide.One interesting example
The authors say: "Whenever travellers meet each other on the road, they swap info about the places they came from and ask questions about places they're going. We want to make it easy to share that knowledge and let others share it; our copyleft license means that the facts you know can spread far and wide."
You can read there about many interesting places of our World. For example about the Walt Disney World Resort it says: At the Walt Disney World Resort, you can explore human innovation and cooperation; enjoy rides both thrilling and enchanting; relax and recuperate on the beach or the golf course; and discover an entire resort where children and adults can have fun—together.
Walt Disney World, located in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, near Orlando, is the flagship of Disney's worldwide theme park empire. It is, by far, the most popular theme park resort in the world. Some visitors describe it as a place of magic, wonder, and fantasy; others speak of fun, excitement, and relaxation; and still others complain of crowds, artifice, and unrelenting tackiness. As with most things, the essence of Walt Disney World lies near the intersection of those three views.
The centerpieces of Walt Disney World are the four theme parks: The Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Animal Kingdom. Walt Disney World also has two of the world's three most popular water parks, Typhoon Lagoon and Blizzard Beach, both heavily themed. Two shopping and entertainment districts, Downtown Disney and Disney's Boardwalk, provide extensive shopping, dining, and entertainment options. If none of that strikes your fancy, check out some of the lesser-known activities: golf, tennis, boating, race car driving, spas and health clubs, backstage tours, sporting events, character dining, and much more...
And the information continues...A few last words
To create Wikivoyage there is a tool (or a process, or a technology) called a wiki which lets any Internet reader create, update, edit, and illustrate any article on the Web site. We all share our pieces of knowledge, edit them, distill them, and assemble them... Wikivoyage is highly recommended to everybody who loves travel.
