Travel Library

There are millions of travel sites to chose from on the web although only a handful are visited by the majority of Americans.  There are two basic types of travel sites:
  • Reservation and booking services. Such as airlines, cruises, hotels, etc.  They also offer vacation packages.  They may have some good tourist information for popular destinations, but not always detailed information.  They sometimes have links to other websites with more complete information. 

    It is usually best to do your own web research on a destination, tour company, or planned  adventure before making reservations or bookings.  Using travel agents are especially a good idea if you are not web savvy or don't want to spend the time doing your own research.
     
  • Travel and tourist information sites.  These sites specialize in providing detailed travel and tourist information for countries and cities of the world and for various travel topics.  Some provide first-hand information from people who live there or people who have traveled to a destination or have information about hotels, vacation packages, tour companies etc. All travel magazines have on-line versions although often in less detail. You may have to subscribe to the online edition.

    The ebizmba.com website maintains a list of the Top 15 travel Websites based on the number of visits by web users.

We don't have the desire or resources to compete with them. Our niche is to give you a brief description and links to a selection of popular, or otherwise useful, travel sites that have good information on a city, country or region of the world.  We also link to websites that cover specific travel topics.  These are all personally selected based on a review of the websites content, layout and user friendliness. 

We are not an affiliate of any booking or reservation websites.   However, we do provide links to major travel websites that do bookings and reservations.

Top 15 Travel Websites

We have a good Travel Library stocked with over 250 travel topics and a Language Library covering various language topics.

Notice the handy navigation panel on the left. Use it to quickly get to where you want to go on our website. The table below provides a quick overview of our Travel Library section.

We also have a wonderful Language LibraryThe purpose of our language library is to make it easy for you to find products to help you learn a little of the languages of the countries you will be visiting or to find products and language schools to immerse yourself in a specific language.  Note:  All our city and country pages under the World Links section have links to our webpage for the major languages spoken in that place.  
 

Some Nice Things about our Travel Library

You can reach any of our Travel Library topics using the
Navigation Panel on the left.

3-Click Rule We believe in the 3-Clck Rule.  You should be able to find anything you are looking for within 3 clicks. 
Topics We have over 250 travel topics with links to excellent and comprehensive sites that cover a subject.
Charts We love charts (i.e., tables) because you can see at a glance the information.  This makes it easier for you to research a travel topic or destination. We also have some charts on travel topics and certain destinations that are unique.  A good example of one of these charts is our Visit a Desert chart on our Desert Travel page.
Direct Links When we link to another website, our policy is to drop you off on the page at that website that has the information you are looking for so you don't have to drill down.  We are successful in doing this about 95% of the time. Otherwise we will get you as close as possible. 
Affiliations Although we are an affiliate of the companies that are listed in our Legal Notice and on our Village Shop page, that does not keep us from linking to whomever we feel has good information for your trip.
