Top 10 Travel Websites

Maybe you’re about to set off on your travels or maybe you are just day dreaming at the moment. It’s good to have reliable resources to use.

I give you the Top 10 Travel Websites!

The ability of this website to inform is not merely down to its content but also due to its large membership base and very active forums. It is especially good for meeting fellow travellers.

A great site for anyone travelling to Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia or Malaysia. Fantastic source for independent and current travel advice for this part of the world.

Need to book a hostel anywhere in the world? Look no further.

Long established site featuring independent travellers’ reviews on the best places to stay.

Originally a source for backpackers to bag a sofa for the night, this website has bloomed into a social network allowing you to meet locals in different parts of the globe. Geared more towards the younger generation but gaining interest from the older folk.

The granddaddy of travel information, this is a must. Be sure to check out the Lonely Planet Thorn Tree for advice, hints and tips.

Need inspiring, is the place to go. Try hitting the ‘panic button’ for instant inspiration.

Where are you from and where are you going? Comprehensive and up-to-date visa information and requirements.

A massive source of information from city breaks to skiing holidays. If you can’t find it here you weren’t looking properly.

You’ll be on a 747 for 12 hours so you’ll want to be comfortable right? Check out showing you the best and worse places to sit on different aircraft.

The wild card I threw in here. When you go travelling what you really want is really cool gadgets. Whether you actually need them or not is another matter.


That’s all folks.

    We’re currently creating our own list of best amateur travel sites on the blog. We’re looking for something a bit different– people who offer info on the places they travel (like you) as well as pictures, maps and more. We basically don’t want any sites that are big enough to be money makers (like Lonely Planet, etc).

    Totally agree with you on TravelFish, when I went to SEA it made planning or lack of planning 10 times easier.
