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Please note that we can not guarantee a response and can not be held liable for incorrect or outdated information.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.
  • Don't post questions that common sense or a search engine can answer in a couple of seconds.

Safe Traveling[edit]

What are the safest travel destinations in 2020, in terms of crime? Asked by: 2600:1700:CBD0:C50:8D66:45B6:DFB7:7047 21:36, 6 September 2020 (UTC)

Stay home. Many major galleries, museums & national parks now offer virtual tours. That's one list; web search will turn up at least a dozen others. Pashley (talk) 00:22, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
Blanket admonitions to "stay home" no longer reflect the totality of the current situation. At this stage of the game, many nations have reopened for tourism at least partially and we can speak meaningfully of destinations that are safer to visit vs. those that are less safe, while trusting the reader to use their own judgment in terms of weighing the risks. And as a wiki that's focused on serving the traveller, it's time to transition into doing just that. -- AndreCarrotflower (talk) 01:13, 7 September 2020 (UTC)
I rather disagree, but the question was "safest in terms of crime", and the usual answers for such questions include Japanese cities and Singapore. Ikan Kekek (talk) 01:16, 7 September 2020 (UTC)

Call from China[edit]

Excuse-me, I’m searching the code which must be composed in mainland china before the international calling code in order to call France, please ? 2A01:CB0C:38C:9F00:3D22:E2E9:50AD:E73 18:06, 19 October 2020 (UTC)

The prefix for international calls from phones allowing direct calls abroad is 00, the prefix for France is 33, so for calling 01 12345678 (in Paris), dial 00 33 1 12345678. Then, international calls from China may be convoluted, check China#Telephone or wait for a more knowledgeable answer. –LPfi (talk) 18:55, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
I suppose the code you are searching for (to be used with your own mobile phone) is individual, or at least impossible for us to know. –LPfi (talk) 19:01, 19 October 2020 (UTC)
