Community Guidelines

Help keep our Q&A useful and relevant for the community by following these simple guidelines.

Please do

  1. Ask questions clearly
    Writing concisely, being descriptive and using correct grammar makes your questions more visible, and ensures you get better answers.
  2. Share your travel experience
    Share your knowledge and local insights, and improve the likelihood of other members returning the favour :)
  3. Be nice
    Please, be courteous and treat others with respect. Our members come from all over the world, so please be mindful of diversity of culture, beliefs, and values.
  4. Rate our content
    See a great question or answer? Rate it up. If you don't think an answer is relevant or helpful, rate it down. And if you see abuse, please report it. This helps ensure we keep unearthing the best, most relevant and insightful local knowledge possible.
  5. Tell us about yourself
    Take a few moments to tell us where you've travelled and about yourself. Share the travel topics you're interested in and we'll learn to ask you questions about those topics.
  6. Have fun!
    Explore questions, share your local knowledge, insights, and travel experiences, and have fun in our Q&A community!

Please don't
