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Please note that we can not guarantee a response and can not be held liable for incorrect or outdated information.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

North Korea[edit]

The question is how to see attractions in North Korea.


Asked by: 202.57.35.99 10:00, 15 April 2016 (UTC)

There's basically no way to visit North Korea as a tourist, except as part of a very carefully stage-managed government tour under strict supervision. These tours usually run from commie mainland China as relations between North and South Korea are poor at the moment due to the nuclear testing and the closure of the factory park.

Shopping questions[edit]

Hi, as this a 'shopping' advice question, I felt it belongs here rather than on the Misc desk at Wikipedia.

I'm planning a trip into London, England around July, but am looking for some specialist items, namely paper models.

Does anyone here have any ideas on where to start looking?

Asked by: Sfan00 IMG (talk) 16:50, 27 April 2016 (UTC)

First thing that comes to mind would be one of the large toy shops like Hamleys. More specialist start at Bookends and Pollocks, once you are there ask one of the staff if they know of other specialist places. --Traveler100 (talk) 17:09, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
I agree with the suggestions above, but would also suggest trying bookshops, and the shops in any museums or historic sites that you visit. For example I saw this one in the online British Museum shop. If you are not too fussy about what the model depicts, it is worth looking in discount book chains like The Works.
Is there anything in particular that you are looking to get a model of? AlasdairW (talk) 22:30, 27 April 2016 (UTC)
I'm looking for models of buildings especially architectural landmarks. There's also possibly a firm in West Norwood that does 'hobby' stuff, but it's a bit of trek 'south of the river.' ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 00:57, 28 April 2016 (UTC)
