Wikivoyage:Requested articles

This is a list of articles that do not yet exist on Wikivoyage. Please add links here, and delete those that have a proper article that is not just a link or a blank template.

Or - why not start the article yourself?

Requests should meet the What is an article? policy. For example, a location should normally have somewhere to eat, somewhere to sleep and at least one thing to see or do to deserve an article. A travel topic or itinerary must be within the scope of Wikivoyage.

  • Kerma, one of the largest and most ancient archeological sites in ancient Nubia. (w:Kerma)

CanadaEdit

I might be able to take on this project in the near future. I took a trip there a few years ago and have a great deal of pictures, insight, etc. to show for it. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 15:30, 12 April 2015 (UTC)

United States of AmericaEdit

Might not be a good candidate for its own article per wiaa. It's a tiny town without anything to really see or do, and nowhere to sleep. Also, the Hasidic community there is not especially welcoming of outsiders. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 18:01, 27 May 2017 (UTC)
According to Wikipedia, it has a population of more than 24,000 now. Seems, though, that in the U.S. there's nowhere else like it, so maybe it would be worth an article. But I have no intention to create it myself, since outside of what I see on Wikipedia I have no knowledge of the place. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 01:31, 4 February 2019 (UTC)

South AmericaEdit

AsiaEdit

OceaniaEdit

  • Kuk Swamp archeological and UNESCO World Heritage site in Papua New Guinea providing evidence of agriculture 9000 years ago. Only a one-line listing in the broad highlands region article at the moment.

EuropeanEdit

Czech RepublicEdit

I'm unfamiliar with _Moravian_ Wallachia, but I presume that like the Romanian region of Wallachia, it would be spelled in English with a "W". Ikan Kekek (talk) 15:41, 22 December 2016 (UTC)
As quoted by Ikan Kekek it is Moravian Wallachia not Moravian Vallachia .SO i am changing V to W. It is a mountain region in Czech Republic. Sulthan90 (talk) 11:14, 26 March 2017 (UTC)

FranceEdit

IrelandEdit

PolandEdit

  • Lądek-Zdrój - lots of beautiful photos in Commons; look at the category for the town. Coverage of Poland is really deficient in general on this site. There are numerous important destinations that have no article, and others, like Kłodzko, which based on what's on Commons, deserve significantly longer and more detailed articles with more images.

SwedenEdit

Travel topicsEdit

Reasons to travelEdit

We have Working holiday and Gap year travel.
We have Chess, Go and Xiangqi. Reenactment and LARP is somewhat related. Pashley (talk) 03:07, 18 September 2020 (UTC)

UnderstandEdit

PrepareEdit

Get inEdit

  • Vehicle delivery — Various schemes used by snowbirds to transport vehicles cross-country, from w:Auto Train to auto transporters and drive-away companies (some hire chauffeurs to drive the vehicle [including RV's, lorries and buses], some match vehicles to other travellers heading the same way, some haul motorcars and large-truck cabs using tractor-trailer rigs or car carriers). [1][2] is an overview.
  • Marinas, boat rental, houseboats — we have a Marina article but it's a useless skeleton about some town in California. We have cruising on small craft but not sailing per se.
  • The cruise ship article focuses on ocean cruising and ships. A parallel article (to be developed) would focus on river boat and barge canal cruising. River boats and barges offer more in-depth, close-up looks at many countries in their interiors.
  • Entering the United States as the section in United States is getting bloated

By planeEdit

- Why should we split up Flying in the United States? Hobbitschuster (talk) 11:26, 10 May 2020 (UTC)
- there previously was a series on low cost airlines which was deemed so bad it only narrowly escaped outright deletion and was instead redirected to air travel on a budget Hobbitschuster (talk) 11:25, 10 May 2020 (UTC)

Get aroundEdit

Another approach would be to include information about Canada and change the name of the article to "North America without a car" or, to be more specific and avoid confusion about whether to include Mexico, "The U.S. and Canada without a car". Ikan Kekek (talk) 11:27, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
I like the idea, but would prefer whether our "experiment" USA "works" - imho it's on a good path, but not quite "there" yet... Hobbitschuster (talk) 18:18, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
I don't think we should do "North America without a car". "United States without a car" covers enough different regions, let alone one article for "getting around without a car" that stretches from Panama to the Yukon. IMO "Canada without a car" should be a separate article. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 01:25, 26 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Tour boats are missing, leaving a huge gap between cruise ships and boating/cruising on small craft. An outline on ferries was started, but it needs some love.
  • Overland travel in Africa — Africa brings a host of different troubles & issues when compared to overland travel just about anywhere else in the world. Such a page should include issues with fuel, vehicles (2WD vs 4x4 & also limited spare parts/service available for various brands), road conditions, road-side camping, and cover the many border issues present along the continent. This page should also cover some of the common routes in the various regions, but especially in regions difficult to traverse or where there are only a couple viable routes—such as the Sahara, east-west travel between coastal Libya and Zambia (basically there are no routes, but for the truly adventurous N'Djamena-Abeche-Khartoum or Yaounde-Bangui-Kampala are possible), and trans-continental travel down the west coast (there's really only one viable route between Gabon & Angola). A Cycling the Western Sahara itinerary now exists.
  • Trans-Sahara routes — Traveling across the Sahara is no doubt difficult and (often) dangerous. Having one page to cover all the different routes along with common modes of transport, border restrictions, and safety concerns would be very helpful in persons planning a grand overland trip across Africa and be much easier for overlanders than having to sift through info on (or which should be in) the pages of North Africa & Sahel countries. Could either be a page unto itself, or a section of the proposed Overland travel in Africa page
  • Cruising the Southern Ocean — While much of the content of this guide should be included in the "Get in" section of Antarctica, it would be nice to have a page written from the perspective of cruising to Antarctica, South Georgia Island, and even the French Southern and Antarctic Territories. Topics to include: types of cruises (small or large vessel & associated pros/cons), costs, packing list, various procedures/regulations (cleaning to prevent contamination, zodiac boat rides), typical activities (wildlife viewing, kayaking, station visits, helicopter flights), ships, overview of places visited (Antarctic peninsula, Ross Sea, South Georgia Is., Falkland Islands, Tierra del Fuego), and routes (from Ushuaia, Punta Arenas, or Australia/New Zealand).
  • Panama Canal by boat redlinks. Like the Suez Canal (which exists as Suez Route) it should have an article.
  • All-terrain vehicle redirects to Activities; the section there provides no useful info beyond links to a few random country-level articles.
    Now it redirects to Offroad driving, also just mentioning them.
  • Intercity buses in Britain - the network is a lot older than the French or German ones.
  • Motorcycle taxi and Rickshaw redirect to a brief description in taxicabs; Tuk-tuk / Auto rickshaw and tricycle taxi redlink.
  • Canals currently redirect to waterways:
    • Inland waterways in the United Kingdom, currently a stub, these are rather different from their European counterparts (and a lot smaller in some instances!). If there's a really interested party, specific waterways are probably best done as itineraries, (especially longer ones like the River Thames or Grand Union Canal (England) ) ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 11:02, 28 June 2017 (UTC)
    • European inland waterways. There is a section "Rivers and Canals of Europe" in Waterways, but I think a proper article should have a structure hard to shoehorn into that section. The scope would be the waterways covered by the CEVNI regulations, with a short mention of the Kiel Canal and other special cases. This is an extensive waterway system. The regulations are uniform enough and the interconnections many enough that handling them in one article would be useful. The article would be linked from individual waterway itineraries.
  • Rail travel in Israel given the political commitment to expanding the network and strong passenger growth as well as the pervasiveness of sherut, Egged and hitchhiking in other guides, we could get a USP by improving our coverage there as well as filling a rather widening gap in coverage. Hobbitschuster (talk) 21:24, 5 March 2018 (UTC)
Definitely an article that would help our efforts to make railroads great again. So yes, Hobbitschuster, is there anyone on Wikivoyage who at least has a decent knowledge of Israel's rail network? Selfie City (talk) 22:15, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
We currently have Ferries in the Mediterranean, which was nominated for vfd in 2018 and was kept. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 21:49, 29 October 2018 (UTC)
Ferry lines are (to my understanding) considerably more scarce than for instance in Europe or the archipelagoes of Southeast Asia, but as some exist, I'd be surprised if there aren't a few more of them. And because they're so scarce it could be useful for independent travelers planning an island-hopping voyage to have an overview of where they can find such ferries. Of course, if there are extremely few of them, it's probably best to collect them in Caribbean#By_boat_2 and make this a redirect. ϒpsilon (talk) 21:17, 21 September 2018 (UTC)
Quite a lot, it seems, if this site is correct and up to date. Ypsilon (talk) 18:06, 4 May 2019 (UTC)
Not really within our scope. Just because The Other Site has a particular travel topic doesn't mean we have to. --AndreCarrotflower (talk) 02:53, 21 February 2018 (UTC)

SeeEdit

We have Art Deco architecture. It's annoying that Art deco architecture doesn't redirect unless it's written in the search window. Ikan Kekek (talk) 13:11, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
I shall create this redirect. And it should be mentioned on the architecture page. I think my point still stands. Several eras are not covered at all and the eras we do cover are not all that well covered. Hobbitschuster (talk) 13:37, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
Your point does stand. There indeed could be more coverage of architecture - not to mention painting and sculpture. Ikan Kekek (talk) 20:19, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
w:Brutalist architecture. Powers (talk) 23:20, 2 July 2015 (UTC)
There are probably even enthusiasts for that... After all, when they constructed the Plattenbau (GDR style high rises) in the 1970s and 1980s they considered them to be the best thing since sliced bread and wanted to tear down places like Dresden-Neustadt (which - if you read the listings carefully - is now the most popular part of Dresden with most tourists, precisely because it wasn't torn down). And other epochs like the architecture of Al Andalus or the British-Indian architecture (touched upon in British Raj) are well worth a detour if not a trip... Hobbitschuster (talk) 11:51, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
Raising my hand as a fan of Brutalism. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 02:41, 4 September 2015 (UTC)
Burtalist architecture is what built the National Theatre on London's South Bank and the Barbican, both noted arts venues :)ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 20:26, 25 June 2017 (UTC)

Other architecture red links moved from Architecture#Architectural styles. These may not all be viable topics, but they didn't belong in that article.

Or perhaps even African-American history? --Comment by Selfie City (talk about my contributions) 16:33, 29 September 2018 (UTC)
African-American history now exists. Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:26, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
Libraries and monuments are too broad. Even prehistoric sites and archives are pretty broad, so I'm not sure if these are as good travel topics as they seem. --Comment by Selfie City (talk about my contributions) 21:51, 4 September 2018 (UTC)
Marine history would be another prominent subdivision to cover museums, we already have Old ships don't we? 10:22, 25 May 2019 (UTC)
Museums is now a Usable article. Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:28, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
Could be better covered, but that's down to people taking more time to develop that article. A lot of Gothic cathedrals are covered in the Gothic architecture article, though. Ikan Kekek (talk) 11:28, 2 October 2015 (UTC)
I've created Biomes and ecosystems along those lines. Selfie City (talk) 00:34, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
I think this fits pretty well in the "textiles" article, where it is mentioned now. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 01:55, 26 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Baha'i Faith
  • Performance art — above we have a suggestion for a Performance magic. Would it be a good idea to have a "collection" article for performance art including theater, different music performances etc.
    • I think an article like this would be a good idea, but I don't think it should be called "Performance art", because I think that term usually refers to more conceptual art that is of interest to a fairly specific, narrow audience, rather than normal theatrical performances, concerts, etc. Maybe Performing arts? —Granger (talk · contribs) 20:07, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
      Exactly. Ikan Kekek (talk) 20:17, 9 March 2018 (UTC)
  • Sustainable technology tourism, including industries and buildings which are forerunners in waste management, recycling, energy efficiency, clean power, pollution management and other pro-environmental technologies
  • Kurorte in Germany, Spas in Central Europe, Spas in Europe, Belle Epoque health tourism or some such, have a look at w:de:Great Spas of Europe to get some idea what I am talking about - basically the places where the rich and the famous of the Victorian Age got their (real or imagined) illnesses cured and hobnobbed with the other rich and famous
    We have Spas. I suppose the mentioned articles could be created when the appropriate sections in Spas get unwieldy. –LPfi (talk) 07:13, 28 September 2020 (UTC)
  • Religion in East Asia; preferrably covered in one article, as Buddhism is usually syncretized with local religions such as Taoism and Shinto
    "Preferrably covered in one article". Who says? If these religions really have a lot in common, maybe call the article "Buddhism and Taoism" or something along those lines, but "Religion in East Asia" would also include a lot of Muslims in Indonesia and Malaysia, along with Christians in the Philippines and South Korea. In other words, you can find followers of almost any religion in East Asia, so this really isn't the best travel topic idea in my opinion. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 02:42, 27 October 2018 (UTC)
    Should Buddhism cover what is not too much intertwined with Taoism & al (as it now does) and Taoism and Shinto discuss also the blending? –LPfi (talk) 07:36, 28 September 2020 (UTC)
    • The blending of Buddhism with Taoism and Confucianism is to my understanding mostly a Chinese phenomenon, and of course the blending of Buddhism with Shintoism is solely Japanese. Does that answer your question? I will say this: Shintoism and Buddhism are blended in Japan, but there are some differences. However, the coexistence between the two religions is shown by the fact that it's common for a Shinto shrine to be next to or near a Buddhist temple. Ikan Kekek (talk) 10:01, 28 September 2020 (UTC)
      • Yes, to my understanding also. I suppose this is so common in Taoism & al that it should be covered in those articles, while it is of less significance for Buddhism, and could in that article be mentioned in passing only.
  • Bushman culture / Khoekhoe culture / San culture
  • German Reich; including German Empire, the Weimar Republic, and Nazi Germany
    I'm not sure we want that kind of article, "pilgrimage" to the sites of the Wilhelms and - even worse - the Nazis tends to attract the wrong kind of people and we already have Holocaust remembrance Hobbitschuster (talk) 13:51, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
    The German Reich was the name of Germany from 1871, so an article would include many venues from Imperial Germany, as well as the Weimar Republic. Nazi Germany existed for only 12 years, and many landmarks from those years have been torn down or disfigured. This article would not primarily be a ledger for Nazi pilgrimage. /Yvwv (talk) 14:00, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
    I know that the Weimar Republic was also called the German Reich, but when hearing "German Reich" most people (including most Germans) think Wilhelm or Adolf. And the whole Bismarck, Wilhelm and Sedan BS is reactionary at best and "Nazism without Nazi symbols" at worst - people flying a Kaiserreich era flag mostly do so because the Nazi era symbols are mostly prohibited. Plus, the German Reich (under all three "arrangements" combined) only existed for 73 years (1871-1945), which will be surpassed by post-war Germany shortly and I'm not sure we want an article on that as a specific topic, either. Hobbitschuster (talk) 14:10, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
    I have to agree with Hobbitschuster here. Not something we want to be seen as promoting, especially at this juncture in geopolitical history. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 21:53, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
    Yes, we can revisit this in 150 years. However, perhaps a topic about the Prusso-German Empire could work, if there's call for it. Ikan Kekek (talk) 22:10, 4 April 2017 (UTC)
  • Factory tours: We have some travel topics by type of industry or economic sector (agritourism and mining tourism) but there is potential to have many more. [...]
As far as countries go, Industrial Japan and Industrial Germany would be important to have too. Gizza (roam) 02:41, 24 May 2017 (UTC)
Everything in the past is or soon will be history. Where do we draw the line between History and Nostalgia? Back in the 1950s there was huge nostalgia for the "simpler times" of the 1890s... Today there is nostalgia for the "suburban paradise" of the 1950s (though if you ask me it looks more like a nightmare, but that's neither here nor there). Point is: I see too much overlap with historical travel Hobbitschuster (talk) 22:23, 10 May 2015 (UTC)
Nostalgia would stretch about 30-50 years back, for old people remembering their own childhood. Possibly we could follow up Industrialization in the United States with Cold War United States- /Yvwv (talk) 22:23, 11 May 2015 (UTC)
That should probably be "Post war era" as "Cold war" conjures up discussion specifically of nuclear tourism, bunkers, missile silos, the whole "better dead than red" thing instead of the entire post-WWII era as a whole. Any "history of..." articles which follow the pattern of the US topics (where Industrialization of the United States ends at WWII) would logically have that war and the post-war era as the next chapter. K7L (talk) 01:22, 12 May 2015 (UTC)
We now have a Post-war United States article. /Yvwv (talk) 16:16, 14 May 2015 (UTC)
See Cold War Europe for military and political destinations. We can also consider articles for British pop music and similar culture-themed articles. /Yvwv (talk) 11:54, 27 September 2015 (UTC)
  • Town twinning is alluded to in twin towns (disambiguation), which also covers the unrelated Twin Cities concept. If there's something specific for the traveller to see or do, usually an event or cultural exchange as an activity like "Dull and Boring Days" in Boring OR USA, these might be travel-relevant as a separate topic. (We don't need a full list of every "twinned town" or "sister city" as there are a few thousand in Europe alone, many with just a signpost or a plaque at City Hall in the respective communities. w:Twin towns and sister cities is a good overview.)
Maybe we can have a section somewhere in a ctiy article on her sister cities? Hobbitschuster (talk) 00:20, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Not really travel related. Wikipedia has enough trouble keeping the lists up to date. Powers (talk) 00:36, 23 April 2015 (UTC)
Maybe change the existing twin town entry from disambiguation to travel topic and leave it at that? K7L (talk) 10:35, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

Historical travelEdit

see also Talk:Historical travel#Requested articles
IMO think it's too broad a topic. --Comment by Selfie City (talk about my contributions) 20:06, 14 September 2018 (UTC)
We have an article called History of organized labor User:AdamT777 (talk) 19:02, 19 September 2020 (UTC)
  • I think you'd agree, that's an overbroad topic and will work better as subtopic articles. Would there be enough for an article about the 1848 Revolution? What about Spanish Civil War sites? Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:34, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
  • oh for sure. I'd make the main article an overview. As for 1848 - I don't know. Hobbitschuster (talk) 09:12, 17 May 2017 (UTC)
An interesting prospect for a topic. According to Wikivoyage:Naming conventions we avoid the in article names including travel topic. Our article on the Holocaust is named Holocaust remembrance. Could we find a suitable name for this article? /Yvwv (talk) 11:12, 11 May 2020 (UTC)
I wonder if we have enough regular contributors editing destinations in Northern Ireland and Ireland to be confident of producing balanced correctly nuanced coverage of a sensitive area of recent history. It would be better to cover a longer period from the w:Easter Rising (or earlier) to the w:Good Friday Agreement. The events of 1916 in Dublin are more easily viewed as history than the bombing in Omagh in 1998. AlasdairW (talk) 20:40, 11 May 2020 (UTC)
A broader topic as you outlined would be fine, and segments of it could always be spun off whenever it gets long. In terms of nomenclature, though, if the topic on the Holocaust didn't have the word "remembrance" in it, we could easily use the phrase "Nazi Holocaust", but in this case, "The" is always used and "Troubles" wouldn't make sense. So per ttcf and as an exception like The Hague, we should use "The" in the title if we go with this topic. Ikan Kekek (talk) 21:02, 11 May 2020 (UTC)
Would Irish republicanism do? Compare w:Irish republicanism. /Yvwv (talk) 14:55, 4 October 2020 (UTC)
That's only one side of the conflict. We'd have to be very careful to avoid bias if we focus only on that side. Ikan Kekek (talk) 18:23, 4 October 2020 (UTC)

Fiction tourismEdit

See Talk:Fiction tourism#Requested topics for additional proposed topics.

Reality televisionEdit

  • The Amazing Race tourism - either a travel topic or itinerary. The only issue is that there are many seasons (over 30) and about 20-30 cities are visited each season.
Unrealistic, because as the person posting the suggestion said, there are hundreds and hundreds of places to be listed (see w:The_Amazing_Race_(American_TV_series)#Series_overview for links to WP articles of each season). Ypsilon (talk) 14:29, 26 July 2019 (UTC)

DoEdit

  • Canoeing exists and also covers kayaking. Anything from the remark above that should be moved to Talk:Canoeing, or shall it be deleted? Ikan Kekek (talk) 05:21, 18 September 2020 (UTC)
Site search results for NASCAR. This is a popular sport and definitely merits an article. Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:41, 3 November 2015 (UTC)
Let's make a redlink for NASCAR, then. ϒpsilon (talk) 18:02, 15 June 2016 (UTC)
  • Why do you think it should have its own separate topic? It might ultimately merit being separated, but let's see how things go. Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:38, 10 November 2019 (UTC)
In my opinion, too broad a topic. --Comment by Selfie City (talk | contributions) 01:44, 26 October 2018 (UTC)
  • Reggae
  • Rhythm and blues, soul music, blues - sites related to popular music history from the 1950s to today. (Rock and roll and Jazz were created in 2018.)
  • Roller sport/Roller sports/Skateboarding/Roller skating
  • Sailing (Sailing ships?) - I changed the redirect into a disambiguation page, but noticed we have nothing on sailing in the spirit of Sail Training International or Tall Ships' Races, and neither about the many smaller sailing ships providing commercial cruises of a day or a few (or longer, but without typical cruise ship amenities), hopefully with real sailing. I think those three could be handled in the article, with links to Cruise ships and Cruising on small craft for most of the rest.
  • Samba
  • Sepak takraw - big sport in Southeast Asia (w:Sepak takraw)
  • Fan conventions / science fiction conventions, etc – the main topic conventions (and convention planning) also redlinks.
  • Scouting; about how to travel with help of the international Scout movement (international camps, lodging, hospitality exchange etc.). Some info in Summer camp
  • Sumo
  • Tattoos; possibly the most lasting kind of souvenir
  • Tennis: A sport that is both played and watched on holiday
  • Travel selfies/selfies: As a subtopic of travel photography. A key component of travel among the social media generation.
    Is it taking selfies that is the main point, or should it be about cameras of smart phones and similar, in the same way as full systems are handled in their own article? If the former it should perhaps rather be part of a series about choosing how to compose your photos: how do you make your image of the Notre-Dame interesting – with the cathedral as a selfie background or otherwise.
    Good points. I was thinking of two things when I proposed this. 1. taking a high quality selfie - what background you should have, how you should take it including the angle, zoom, poses, etc. but also the tools so which smartphone or proper camera (I think modern cameras have selfie modes) and selfie sticks/drones. And 2. the safety issues with taking selfies, since there are sadly stupid people who put themselves in dangerous situations like standing at an edge of a cliff. I was thinking of a similar article to wildlife photography. These were some articles I found on other sites [4] [5] [6] [7] although some of theses article talk about taking photos when you're alone which overlaps but is not the same thing. Gizza (roam) 00:07, 15 June 2017 (UTC)
Obviously, my opinion would be naturally important here considering my username, although actually I am not a big selfie person. But this article could make sense for a travel guide. Selfie City (talk) 17:50, 10 August 2018 (UTC)

LearnEdit

  • Learning a language abroad — some overlap with—or maybe a subsection of—Studying abroad...this section would cover how to find good language programs, types of programs, length and advantages/disadvantages of length of study. It should also discuss pure language programs versus combining language studies/exercise with work, other studies (e.g. exchange programs) or vacation activities and how prior knowledge of the language influences the choices. Previously attempted at language tourism, which currently points to a single paragraph of travel activities.
  • Erasmus – a European study exchange programme, the major one for Europeans wanting to study abroad. The article could cover the European higher education system as harmonized in the Bologna process, perhaps with a name such as Studying in Europe.

WorkEdit

  • Working holiday — currently redirects to one section of working abroad. Should cover the various work-holiday schemes available in countries like E.U., Australia, NZ, US. We have gap year travel, which may overlap slightly. There are many pitfalls by which itinerant workers may be exploited abroad.
  • WWOOFing — "Willing workers on organic farms", the WWOOF page is a redirect (after vfd discussion). There is a brief mention in Volunteer travel and a good article about agrotourism in general, but no topic page specifically about working on farms.
WWOOF is just one network or organisation; why limit this? We have working abroad but not an article specific to working on farms. The Australian backpacker visa programme, for instance, is worth at least a mention. K7L (talk) 00:50, 27 September 2018 (UTC)

BuyEdit

-Much of United States of America#Buy has been moved to Shopping in the United States.
  • Dog adoption - general advice how to find serious agents abroad
  • Fashion - In other words where to purchase something special, as opposed to the practical day to day clothing the traveller packs for a trip away. As discussed in the travellers pub, there are a number of centers globally which are places specifically known for their connection with fashion. An article about buying a Kimono is already present. I've put this under Buy as I felt that this would be where the focus of a topic would be. There may be some overlap with See/Do, given that a topic on Fashion could also cover Costume History. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 07:24, 19 September 2017 (UTC)
    • We can start building on the Clothing artilce. /Yvwv (talk) 23:49, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
  • Jewellery shopping/Jewelry shopping. Buying niche gemstones, etc. not common in your hometown or country and where you lack experience and specialist knowledge. Tips on how to assess and get the highest quality for the best price.
  • Wool - traditional craft of woolen clothing, and exclusive fabrics such as merino, alpaca and camel hair
  • Watches - Where to buy expensive watches; watches good for different purposes (sport watches, cheap generic watches which can be afford to be lost), risks of carrying pirate watches through customs
  • Records and audio equipment - Vinyl records, vintage audio systems, as well as modern Bluetooth equipment; some connection with music, nostalgia, art and antiques shopping and electrical systems

Eat/DrinkEdit

What about dinner cruises though? Hobbitschuster (talk) 19:37, 12 July 2015 (UTC)
  • Roadside diners are technically not fast food as they offer table service, but occupy a price point between a fast-food joint and a standard restaurant.
And they represent a niche in North American cuisine that, while rarely recognized as such, is actually quite distinct. And many of them are notable for quirky midcentury architecture/interior design. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 19:32, 17 May 2015 (UTC)
We have an article on Truck stops, perhaps the scope of this (at the moment rather short) article could be expanded to include roadside diners and other places to eat catering to car and bus travelers. ϒpsilon (talk) 04:46, 15 June 2016 (UTC)
You might find the Roadfood website a useful source of information about some of these. Ikan Kekek (talk) 05:12, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

Cuisine articles by country or supra-national region, as these are probably what travellers look for:

Way too broad a topic and almost smacks of ethnocentrism to me. Would you suggest a "Cuisines of Asia" or "Cuisines of Europe" article? Africa is a vast continent with great variety. What would hold this kind of article together? Ikan Kekek (talk) 13:09, 2 August 2016 (UTC)
Wikipedia describes Wikipedia:African cuisine by sub-region. Probably the North African cuisine, West African cuisine, East African cuisine and Southern African cuisine would be useful articles. /Yvwv (talk) 13:28, 2 August 2016 (UTC)
  • Isn't Middle Eastern cuisine largely an extension of Turkish cuisine? Of course, there are regional cuisines in Turkey. I'd suggest increasing coverage of Turkish food in the Middle Eastern cuisine article and then thinking about spinning off a separate article if that seems most user-friendly. Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:43, 10 November 2019 (UTC)

A few cuisine types are not tied to a single region:

Also, there's a lot to write about the history of spices, including the spice trade a few centuries ago, where certain spices and herbs are from, how and when they spread around the world etc.
  • Sake; The Other Site has an extensive article named Japanese sake tourism; if we reverse-engineer it with anorther title, we will probably not be penalized by search engines
  • I am now on a pretty strict ketogenic diet and have traveled with it for close to a month (3 weeks in California and Oregon and what will be a week in Upstate New York), and I've lost around 15 pounds in that time plus a couple of weeks at home, without starving myself in the least. Should I start a Travelling on a low carbohydrate diet article? Before I do, what if any concerns do you have about how the article should be written? Ikan Kekek (talk) 04:52, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
@Ikan Kekek: In my opinion, it would make the most sense to create a Travelling on a diet article with sections that cover different types of diets. Selfie City (talk) 01:45, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
We already have a dedicated article on Kashrut, so what kinds of diets are being subsumed here? A keto diet such as I am on is for health, but celiac folks absolutely cannot have gluten in even one meal without getting violently ill, so the urgency of the diet is different. Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:10, 16 August 2018 (UTC)
I think Kashrut/kosher is an exception; the number of people on the diet justifies the article's existence. It would be interesting to find statistics comparing how many people are on each diet so we can get an idea about which would be the most useful to the traveler. Selfie City (talk) 01:51, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
I think any special diet would make a good article. If you're one of 100 people in the world who has to follow an oregano-free diet, and you find the article on travelling without coming in contact with oregano in Wikivoyage (don't go to Italy), you'd be pretty happy. Ground Zero (talk) 03:43, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
And low-carb diets are quite common. I think I'll just start the article soon, and anyone can edit it, anyway. Avoiding gluten for celiac folks should be its own article. Ikan Kekek (talk) 15:06, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
If you were able to expand it to include other controlled carbohydrate diets the appeal of the article would be widened, at least until we get a Travelling with Diabetes article. I expect that many of the issues are similar whether you are trying to eat <10g or close to 50g of carbohydrate for lunch, but I could be wrong. However don't let me distract you from creating a useful article. AlasdairW (talk) 22:58, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
All sorts of diets are common. Low carb, low fat, even low protein for people who only have one functioning kidney. They would benefit some travellers out there. Gizza (roam) 23:16, 17 August 2018 (UTC)
Thank God I don't have diabetes, and my current diet is likely to stave it off, so I can't easily address diabetes directly, but I'll start the article tonight, and I'd welcome any help from anyone who wants to address diabetes specifically. Ikan Kekek (talk) 03:36, 21 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Sugar - everything related to sugarcane, sugar beets, other sugar plants, their cultivation and processing, rum and other uses of the said plants including the connection with slavery and whatnot
  • Fungi/Mushrooms; according to modern taxonomy, they are not vegetable. While yeast and molds are catalytic ingredients in many dishes, an article on fungi would mainly deal with the mushrooms; the spore-bearing bodies of fungi consumed as food. /Yvwv (talk) 19:42, 14 April 2019 (UTC)
    Biologically they're not plants, but from a culinary perspective they're vegetables, right? I think we could start with a section in Fruits and vegetables and see how it goes. —Granger (talk · contribs) 01:24, 15 April 2019 (UTC)

SleepEdit

CopeEdit

ConnectEdit

Stay healthyEdit

Stay safeEdit

  • Avalanches redirects to snow safety, an outline.
    I think the avalanche part of that article would be usable on its own, it's just that other aspects are insufficiently covered. –LPfi (talk) 07:50, 28 September 2020 (UTC)
  • Corruption / bribes — Currently both redirect (along with trouble with authorities) to Stay safe. Authority trouble was deleted, but deserves a new chance. A traveller could use advice how to deal with corruption, police brutality, unlawful detention, or charges of crime.
  • While an article on marijuana has been started at cannabis, drugs merely disambiguates and smoking redirects to tobacco.
  • Fire safety in hotels and on campgrounds; we have a page on wildfires only.
  • Sea piracy is mentioned in a few currently-affected or historic destinations, but as a hazard it broadly affects entire regions (Somalia in particular has spread its pirates hundreds of miles) and may therefore be best as a travel topic.
  • Touts — "special price only for you my friend...", perhaps it'd be good to have a page with some tactics for a first-time visitor to e.g. Tangier how to lose them before you lose your nerves. Ignoring touts doesn't always help or may not be possible.
  • Upland terrain - An article on Avalanches is mentioned previously here, but a more general stay safe article aimed at mountainous and upland terrain should be considered, some overlap with Altitude Sickness and Cold weather. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 08:24, 29 June 2017 (UTC)

RespectEdit

It now redirects to Ethnic groups, which has links to some more related topics. Selfie City (talk) 00:27, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Taboo, broad and difficult topic to begin writing about. Perhaps respect isn't the best section but hard to place. There may be some overlap with culture shock (see above). Gizza (roam) 14:12, 20 May 2017 (UTC)
  • Houseguest etiquette, including some of the ways that it varies by culture
  • Cheek kissing, the standard greeting in much of Europe and Latin America, usually confusing for English-speakers. Included with Respect, or another topic? /Yvwv (talk) 16:05, 22 February 2019 (UTC)
  • I'm thinking the article would be one on how to greet and take leave of people (what to do when you say "Hello" and "Goodbye"). I suppose the overall title could be "Greeting people" or something like that. Ikan Kekek (talk) 20:04, 22 February 2019 (UTC)

ItinerariesEdit

AfricaEdit

AsiaEdit

EuropeEdit

Possibly it can be covered in Napoleonic Wars, though it's still an itinerary. When Napoleon was defeated for the first time, the Coalition exiled him on the island of Elba but he managed to escape after less than a year. He was then at large for 100 days, moving north secretly along paths in the French Alps nowadays known as Route Napoleon and gathered a new army which was finally beaten at Waterloo. ϒpsilon (talk) 17:03, 24 December 2015 (UTC)
  • Across Yugoslavia, Ljubljana to Skopje or something like that. Now made up of 7 countries, Yugoslavia was one single country during most of the 20th century, and a route from end to end of this former country via historically important places from that era could be an interesting itinerary. -- ϒψιλον (talk) 17:20, 4 April 2019 (UTC)
  • London LOOP (w:London Outer Orbital Path), 150 mi/242 km long-distance trail around London which I stumbled upon when wandering around Wikipedia. Looks like something worth an itinerary article, and as London is one of the cities Wikivoyage covers best, perhaps we have some contributor(s) familiar with this path? --Ypsilon (talk) 16:28, 30 May 2019 (UTC)
  • Green Stockholm: The decommissioned gas works, recycling systems, bicycle garages, Mynttorget, etc. /Yvwv (talk) 17:58, 29 February 2020 (UTC)

Middle EastEdit

North AmericaEdit

I like this idea a lot. Of course, a West Coast hip hop tour (Compton, Long Beach, South Central L.A. as well as Oakland) would also be de rigueur, as well as a Dirty South hip hop tour (Miami, Atlanta, etc.) -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 17:58, 6 February 2016 (UTC)
United States National Parks might be a good place to put National Heritage Areas, but that article first needs to be reorganized (and possibly split up?) -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 05:17, 8 June 2015 (UTC)
  • Portlandia Tour, for the comedy series set in Portland (Oregon)
  • Boston Post Road - an old Amerindian trail between Boston and New York City improved by early U.S. colonists to facilitate mail delivery. Now serves as the main street of many of the towns between those two cities, where many buildings from the Colonial and Revolutionary eras still stand (along with the many of the mileposts placed along the route in the 18th Century). Large portions of the route are listed in the National Register of Historic Places and/or as National Historic Landmarks.
The Lower Post Road, which connects the Bronx with Providence, RI, is part of US Route 1. I suppose you want to cover the Upper Post Road? Ikan Kekek (talk) 04:04, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
1) Ideally we would cover all three of them. Some information for the Lower Post Road might be adapted from the US Route 1 article, but we'd want to place special emphasis on the Colonial- and Revolutionary-era historical relics you'll see along the way, rather than merely giving a generalized description of the route.
2) How is an article like US Route 1 allowable per policy anyway? We're not supposed to have articles on roads, and US-1 not particularly well-known as a tourist itinerary in its own right, like Route 66 and the Lincoln Highway are.
-- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 04:20, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
Why not? Driving on Route 1 gives the driver and passenger an experience of what a main road used to be like around 60-100 years ago. You drive through a lot of centers of towns, and also through countryside and old-fashioned strip malls - some of them in the center of the highway in New Jersey. But you probably know that, since you want to have an article about part of Route 1. Also, see Talk:U.S. Highway 1. Ikan Kekek (talk) 05:07, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
That's kind of a stretch, but seeing as I'm not a huge fan of the anti-"road article" policy to begin with, I'll leave it alone. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 05:38, 24 June 2015 (UTC)
Looks like the U.S. cable network C-SPAN already did something like this, but with a focus on the political philosophies he discussed in his book rather than being geared toward travellers. This ought to sharply reduce the amount of research necessary to determine what route he took. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 22:01, 6 September 2015 (UTC)
From Plymouth to Hampton Roads is an itinerary of the north-east, where more historical destinations can be inserted. /Yvwv (talk) 17:54, 3 October 2015 (UTC)
Frankly, "driving through somewhere as quickly as possible" strikes me as almost antithetical to the concept of travel as defined on this site. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 22:56, 29 August 2017 (UTC)
Something like Driving across the United States would be a better idea. --Comment by Selfie City (talk about my contributions) 20:03, 14 September 2018 (UTC)

OceaniaEdit

South AmericaEdit

Central AmericaEdit

  • Central America by bike - lots of people seem to tour all or part of Central America by bike. This article could focus on the "obvious" route mostly along Carreterra Panamericana, but also suggest deviations, side trips or alternative routes. Information on whether to bring or buy a bike and the potential resale value as well as the availability of competent repair personnel and spare parts would also be much appreciated. Information on which roads to avoid and how to behave in traffic as well as legalities and practicalities on border crossing and ferry trips can't do no harm either

IntercontinentalEdit

I've redirected these suggestions to Magellan-Elcano circumnavigation. --Comment by Selfie City (talk about my contributions) 21:21, 9 September 2018 (UTC)
...which is no use to anyone looking for info on how to make the trip today. K7L (talk) 22:26, 9 September 2018 (UTC)
...Except that it gets them around the world. --Comment by Selfie City (talk about my contributions) 23:00, 9 September 2018 (UTC)
Not with their own vessel. The article only says that would be the most authentic way. I said in the edit summary when reverting the removal of this entry: "None of the suggested articles covers the suggested topic". The Elcano article does not even say whether the route is feasible or whether the waypoints are reachable by boat today, much less to what extent it is the route modern yachts take. --LPfi (talk) 08:00, 10 September 2018 (UTC)
I've changed the redirects to go to Cruising on small craft and Around the world overland. —Granger (talk · contribs) 08:20, 10 September 2018 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure most sailors that go around the globe don't try to replicate Magellan's and Elcano's voyage exactly but instead want to take a more optimal route and/or visit more places on the beaten path. Likewise, I believe most travelers interested in this trip lack the time, skills and/or resources to travel it by sailing boat. Therefore: it's not the right article to redirect circumnavigation to. Round the world overland is a much better alternative, although circumnavigation could certainly merit its own article if we eventually get a contributor that knows about the subject (long distance sailing is not that uncommon). --ϒpsilon (talk) 11:58, 10 September 2018 (UTC)
As Greta is still a living person, I think that we would need to approach this very carefully, or wait 100? years. As we are thin on policy in this area, I think that w:Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons should be considered. AlasdairW (talk) 18:55, 18 September 2019 (UTC)
Not only are there BLP issues but Thunberg isn't really an explorer or traveller. We do have a few biography itineraries of people who were not explorers but an article on this topic would open up the possibility of thousands (if not tens of thousands) of itineraries on equally famous people. Gizza (roam) 02:51, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
Indeed, Thunberg isn't really famous for traveling per se. For people interested in working on this general topic, I suggest putting that energy into related travel topics, especially Sustainable travel, but also Responsible travel, Round the world overland, Travel as a vegetarian, Leave-no-trace camping, etc. I would love to see Sustainable travel become FTT. —Granger (talk · contribs) 05:09, 29 October 2019 (UTC)

Project pagesEdit

Travel topics are probably too heterogeneous and freeform in structure for a one-size-fits-all help page to be of much use. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 17:15, 9 January 2017 (UTC)
It could at least give pointers. We do have guidelines that affect travel topics, and one could give good examples in different categories as inspiration. --LPfi (talk) 11:44, 6 February 2017 (UTC)
