Of course, Wikipedia has encyclopedia articles about travel and tourism – for a travel guide wiki, contribute to the sister project Wikivoyage.

Anyone who is interested in contributing, please sign up at the participants page, and post any ideas and suggestions on the project's talk page. Also, please feel free to edit this page, adding any articles to the open tasks page, that need serious work or require attention.
