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Please note that we can not guarantee a response and can not be held liable for incorrect or outdated information.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

Want a faster answer?

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.

which year would the best time to visit in Togo?[edit]

Asked by: 10:06, 14 March 2018 (UTC)

I assume you mean what time of year? With the caveat that I haven't been to Togo, here's what the Wikivoyage article about Togo says about the country's climate:
The climate is generally tropical with average temperatures ranging from 27°C on the coast to about 30°C in the northernmost regions, with a dry climate and characteristics of a tropical savanna. To the south there are two seasons of rain (the first between April and July and the second between October and November).
So if you're visiting the southern part of the country and want to avoid rainy seasons, it sounds like your best bet is to come between December and March or between August and September. Ikan Kekek (talk) 10:20, 14 March 2018 (UTC)


Is there a Norwegian equivalent of ordering a drink 'on the rocks' or do you just ask for the drink with ice?

How would you ask for this in Norway? Asked by: 19:03, 15 March 2018 (UTC)

I'd wager there'd be plenty of people around who speak sufficient English to understand your order either way... But maybe our resident Scandinavians can help? @Erik den yngre: @Ypsilon: @LPfi: (I am probably forgetting some here). Hobbitschuster (talk) 19:49, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
I'm pretty sure you can ask for it in English. In Norway I'd ask for "[name of drink] med is", Erik likely knows better if there's some other expression. ϒpsilon (talk) 20:08, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
Correct, "whiskey med is" (=with ice). --Erik den yngre (talk) 22:21, 15 March 2018 (UTC)
Thank you very much. 19:35, 16 March 2018 (UTC)
