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Please note that we can not guarantee a response and can not be held liable for incorrect or outdated information.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

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.

Flow Festival in Ljubljana[edit]

I just recently heard that the Flow Festival, which I have previously seen in Helsinki once, in 2009, is expanding to Ljubljana for the first time, pretty much at the exact time I'm already planning to go there. Unfortunately, it's only "pretty much", not "exactly". I'll miss the festival by one day. I can't change my travel dates any more as I've already booked the ship and train trips. Will there be anything left of the festival in Ljubljana on the day after it closes? Does anyone know whether it will happen there again the next year? Asked by: JIP (talk) 18:36, 7 May 2015 (UTC)

Connections in Tampere[edit]

I'm rather ashamed of asking questions about my home country, especially about a city I've visited frequently. But I don't know of any other place to ask. I'm planning to go to Tampere in early June. Specifically, the Tampere Exhibition and Sports Centre at Ilmailunkatu 20. In the event I stay there until late in the evening, how will I get to the centre of Tampere? Repa Reittiopas told me the last bus leaves at 22:09. If I miss that, is there an option to take a taxi? Is there a taxi station anywhere nearby? I've phoned for taxis numerous times in Helsinki, but never in Tampere. Can I use the same number?

The Exhibition and Sports Centre is only about 2-3 km away from the city centre. And this will be in early summer, when it's still quite light in the evening. But unfortunately the only part of Tampere I'm familiar with is the exact city centre. I know the city from the railway station to Keskustori very well, but my knowledge stops immediately after that. So if I were to try to walk all the way, I fear I would get lost almost immediately.

Asked by: JIP (talk) 19:27, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

Probably best to take a taxi. Here are some phone numbers for calling a taxi in Tampere.
On the other hand it shouldn't be entirely impossible to walk to the railway station (print out a map beforehand). ϒpsilon (talk) 19:48, 12 May 2015 (UTC)

air ticket to DUBAI BY CONSOLIDATOR[edit]

Asked by: 217.92.4.244 08:45, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

What's the question? Ikan Kekek (talk) 08:54, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

I guess the IP wants to know how to get an air ticket to Dubai... However, unless he/she tells us her/his point of origin and a few further details, we won't be able to help, I think... Hobbitschuster (talk) 12:59, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
The IP address belongs to Deutsche Telekom AG, Darmstadt, Germany so maybe the trip is Frankfurt to Dubai? Just randomly guessing... K7L (talk) 15:45, 15 May 2015 (UTC)
That appears to be a reasonable guess, we would only have to know the date and whether it should be a one way or round trip flight... And than the issue of rail&fly arises, as Darmstadt is not exactly Frankfurt and airport parking is expensive in Frankfurt... Anyhow it appears as if the IP is unwilling or unable to further enlighten us ;-) Hobbitschuster (talk) 16:11, 15 May 2015 (UTC)

Eligibility to visit Ireland if an Indian Tourist holds valid UK tourist visa[edit]

Hi,

What are the prerequisites for visiting Ireland if an Indian tourist holds a valid UK tourist visa? Does he need to apply for a separate visa or are there any relaxations to it?

Asked by: 14.141.69.234 14:58, 20 May 2015 (UTC)

Hello!
Here and here is some visa information from the Irish government. According to schedule 3 and schedule 4, depending on the type of UK visa you're holding you may be able to visit Ireland without a separate visa. ϒpsilon (talk) 15:40, 20 May 2015 (UTC)
