Welcome to the tourist office

The Wikivoyage tourist office is a place where you can ask travel-related questions about any place in the world. Wikivoyage volunteers will do their best to find the relevant information (or just reply off the top of their expert heads) and reply to you.

Before you ask your question here, be sure to search our travel guide for the destination or topic you're considering. Many questions are already answered within our guides! In addition, some of our destinations have docents who have volunteered to answer questions about specific places. If neither of those avenues bear fruit, then please ask away!

This page is for travel-related questions only. Information on how to contribute to Wikivoyage is at Help:Contents, while questions about Wikivoyage itself may be posed at the Pub. Queries regarding general information on non-travel topics may be made at Wikipedia's Reference desk; some topics tangentially related to travel include:

  • the Humanities desk, which deals with geopolitics, culture, and human geography
  • the Science desk, which deals with natural processes, physical geography, and engineering (vehicles, transportation design, etc.)

Please note that we can not guarantee a response and can not be held liable for incorrect or outdated information.

Answered questions will be moved to the Archives after two weeks of inactivity.

Want a faster answer?

How can I get my question answered?

  • Explain clearly what you want to know.
  • Provide a short heading that gives the general topic of the question.
  • Tell us what part of the world your question applies to.
  • Don't post personal contact information – it will be removed. We'll answer here within a few days.


Help in finding an old cityEdit

Asked by: 2.53.33.129 15:28, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

I am looking for an old (~existed in 400 AD) "place" (probably a city; possibly a province) that was close to Palmyra (also called Tadmor/ Tadmur), with name like "Shawl" or "Shaval" or "Shavel" or "Sha'ul", or something like this (this place is mentioned in an old book that I am reading, called "The Babylonian Talmud").

Does anybody know such a place? 2.53.33.129 15:28, 30 September 2019 (UTC)

Is it w:Sura (city)? Rubbish computer (Talk: Contribs) 22:47, 11 October 2019 (UTC)

A night bus from Hiroshima to KyotoEdit

I am attending to take a night bus from Hiroshima to Kyoto - Where do I take the bus? from Hiroshima Bus Center or from Hiroshima Station? 85.250.36.181 10:04, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

There is more than one bus from Hiroshima to Kyoto. If you already purchased the ticket, it should say on the ticket where you need to board. Here are some of the Hiroshima boarding points of various Hiroshima-Kyoto buses:
  • 広島駅新幹線口: Hiroshima Station Shinkansenguchi
  • 広島バスセンター: Hiroshima Bus Center
  • 広島八丁堀: Hiroshima Hacchobori
  • バスステーション広島駅北口: Bus Station Hiroshima Station Kitaguchi (North Exit)

Are any of these written on your ticket? It might also help to narrow things down if you say what company/bus name you are riding with, such as Willer Bus, Star Express, or Seishun Dream. ChubbyWimbus (talk) 11:23, 8 October 2019 (UTC)

I still haven't bought the ticket. I will buy the Willer express ticket. 85.250.36.181 12:10, 8 October 2019 (UTC)
When you buy the ticket, you can choose your boarding place. Willer Bus has an English website, so you can reserve there and choose where you will board. You can click the "MAP" button to see where the stop is before you choose it. You will also choose where you will get off (In your case, "Kyoto Station").

UkraineEdit

Hi tourist office, I'm planning to travel around Ukraine for 2 weeks, starting in Kiev and ending in Dnipro. It would be a backpacking trip, and getting around by hitchhiking/train mostly. I read the Ukraine article, and would like to know which cities/areas are the best places to find prostitutes. I'm looking for mid-range ladies because I'm travelling on a budget (student). I couldn't find any recommendations in any of the Ukraine related articles on Wikivoyage. And yes I did read the HIV prevalence warning in the Stay Healthy section, so no need to point out the necessity of protection. Many thanks in advance for expert replies!

We don't service sex tourists on Wikivoyage. Read Wikivoyage:Sex tourism policy. You will have to go elsewhere to get those kinds of recommendations. -- Ikan Kekek (talk) 06:31, 12 October 2019 (UTC)
