Wikivoyage:Requested articles

From Wikivoyage
Jump to navigation Jump to search

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.

Places[edit]

Africa[edit]

Americas[edit]

Canada[edit]

  • Joliette has a cathedral and an art gallery which should be listed somewhere
  • A few individual towns on the main itinerary articles (such as the Trans-Canada Highway or Windsor-Québec corridor) still redlink.
  • Many of the national historic sites like Rocky Mountain House AB, York Factory and Batoche MB redlink, as does UNESCO-listed Grand-Pré NS.

United States of America[edit]

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)

South America[edit]

Asia[edit]

Czech Republic[edit]

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)

England[edit]

Finland[edit]

France[edit]

  • Coulommiers, town known for a particular variety of Brie cheese
  • Langres is a city in the Haute-Savoie region, which is, in a nutshell, a medieval city as uninterrupted by time as can be (aside inevitable inventions such as electricity and cars). Commons has some, though not many pictures of the city.

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)

See[edit]

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


I've created Biomes and ecosystems along those lines. Selfie City (talk) 00:34, 12 August 2018 (UTC)
  • Performance Magic, Requested because there are a small number of prop museums, and of course there are venues such as those in Vegas where the purpose of a trip is to see a specific illusionist. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 13:16, 25 June 2017 (UTC)
  • Jainism, if not described as a sub-topic of Hinduism
  • Silk; farming, manufacturing, tailoring and historical sites
  • 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)

Historical travel[edit]

see also Talk:Historical travel#Requested articles
  • 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)

Fiction tourism[edit]

Reality television[edit]

  • 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.

Do[edit]

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)

Buy[edit]

Can be branched off from textiles.
  • 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, alpacca and camel hair

Eat/Drink[edit]

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)

Cope[edit]

Stay healthy[edit]

I would second the creation of a section at least. UK Met office sometimes issues Air Quality warnings, and Los Angles, California used to be well known for smog comments. ShakespeareFan00 (talk) 20:31, 25 June 2017 (UTC)

Stay safe[edit]

Respect[edit]

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

Project pages[edit]

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)
