Wikitravel.org – a collaborative wikipedia-style guide that is your first port of call to get a neutral overview of a place and often with some handy transport info. A bit bland at times and missing some sections but it’s free and you can always make it better.
Lonely Planet – Home to the enormous Thorn Tree, the biggest travel forum and really quite useless as it’s a substitute for therapy for many of the users.
Rough Guides – the guides are pretty middle of the road these days but at least they do offer them for free.
Travellerspoint.com – worldwide community of travelers offering advice on where to go.
PongÃ¼‘s Travel Guides – series of cool guides written on Asian countries.
Road Junky – Hey, that’s us! Roadjunky evolved as a mission to put the spirit back into travel and go beyond the dead and buried clichés of the saturated travel guide industry. We promise our readers that we won’t sell out until we’re offered enough money.
