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Please note that we can not guarantee a response and can not be held liable for incorrect or outdated information.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

Hi, i am now at The Hague station, and want to go to Zurich train station. Now, the question is: Where need i to change? Franfurt? Suttgart? Colonge? Where? Asked by: DhrGabriel (talk) 07:43, 10 October 2021 (UTC) DhrGabriel 10 october 2021 08:43 AM UTC[reply]

I'm curious whether you tried to ask at an information desk, since you're at the train station now. Is no information desk open? Ikan Kekek (talk) 07:53, 10 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
I don't know whether you still need this information, but for the future reference, the website of the Deutsche Bahn (German Railways) has a pretty good coverage of railway schedules over much of Europe, and it suggests a lot of changes between the cities you mentioned, including one in Köln (Cologne). Please note that, when using its search bar, it returns nothing for "The Hague" (at least not for me), so you may have to use the original Dutch name, Den Haag.

The official name of the city is 's-Gravenhage, but the alternative Den Haag is more common and used for the stations. There are 6 railway stations in the city, 2 of which (Den Haag Centraal and Den Haag HS; originally built by competing companies) are considered the main station, so it helps to be specific. Similarly, Zürich has a lot of stations. Where you have to change depends on the route for which you get a ticket, but the most sensible route would require changes at least at Utrecht Centraal and Frankfurt am Main Flughafen Fernbahnhof.

Travel in Mexico's Baja Peninsula[edit]

A friend of mine plans to travel by plane to La Paz located on the Mexico's West coast, at the end of the Baja peninsula. Then he will board a small bus that will drive him together with other tourists to another place for 4 hours where they will enjoy underwater diving with picture and movie taking. That 4 hour drive will be done presumably along a freeway. How safe is this area? Asked by: AboutFace 22 (talk) 16:38, 28 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]

Crime in Mexico doesn't usually affect tourists. You're of little interest to criminals, and they have no reason to bother you unless it's your intention to bother them. As long as you practice vigilance, everything should be fine in my opinion. My only advice is that you stay clear of areas close to the US-Mexico border because that's where much of the crime happens. A very valuable piece of advice if you go to Mexico next time: Don't drive through the border, don't walk through the border. Always go to Mexico by plane. Always.

Forgot to mention this, but Baja California Sur (which is where La Paz is located) is one of the safest states in Mexico. Roovinn (talk) 09:53, 29 October 2021 (UTC)[reply]
