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Please note that we can not guarantee a response and can not be held liable for incorrect or outdated information.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

Connections in Riga[edit]

In about a week, I and my girlfriend are going to Riga, Latvia. Our hotel is very near the centre of the city, at Kaleju iela, almost right next to the railway station and close to the river. How do we get there from Riga airport? Asked by: JIP (talk) 20:26, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

According to Riga's public transportation website, bus nr. 22 ("Lidosta" is airport) takes you to near the railway station. Have a look at [1], I'd say the best place to get off is the "Autoosta" stop. When going back to the airport, note that the bus stop on the opposite side of the street has a different name, it is called "13 Janvara iela".ϒpsilon (talk) 04:40, 17 June 2016 (UTC)

Getting from Wien Hauptbahnhof to Wien Flughafen[edit]

On Monday 4th July, as I'll be going back to Finland from the World Bodypainting Festival, my train to Wien Hauptbahnhof arrives at 13:35. My flight back to Finland leaves at 17:00. This leaves me 3 hours 25 minutes to get from Wien Hauptbahnhof to Wien Flughafen, get checked in and get to the plane. I don't think I have to check in any luggage, I just have to check myself in and can take all my belongings as hand baggage. Will this be enough time to get all the way from the railway station to the plane? Asked by: JIP (talk) 22:03, 20 June 2016 (UTC)

It should be enough. According to the ÖBB Website it should take you just over half an hour (local trains) or just over a quarter hour (Railjet). If you are arriving in a Railjet anyway, you might wish to book the ticket through to the airport. I doubt that the flight to Finland requires check in more than two hours in advance... Do keep in mind that Railjet and local trains require different tickets and the Railjet is significantly more expensive unless booked in advance. Hobbitschuster (talk) 22:09, 20 June 2016 (UTC)
I already have a Railjet ticket from Pörtschach am Wörthersee to Wien Hauptbahnhof. It's for the RJ 354. Does the same train go to the airport? Is it enough to buy a separate RJ ticket from the railway station to the airport in advance and I could travel directly to the airport? JIP (talk) 04:56, 21 June 2016 (UTC)
I think the ÖBB (and failing that the DB) website displays the train number. Just look for your departure time out of Pörtschach. In Germany the "normal price" (which is now called "Flexpreis") tickets allow you to take any train within its period of validity. I think the same goes for Austria but I don't know for sure.

A direct flight from Johannesburg to London takes just under 12 hours. British Airways, South African and Virgin Atlantic operate on this route, giving a total of 5 flights per day. AlasdairW (talk) 15:59, 24 June 2016 (UTC)
