Using abbreviations is encouraged.
These abbreviations should be uniform and consistent.

Note: The abbreviations below are emboldened for clarity of exposition but, of course, we don't use bold face for abbreviations in Wikitravel articles just because its an abbreviation!

  • 1st floor: 1F, 2nd floor: 2F, etc

Countries

In line with our Brevity is Best philosophy, most country abbreviations do not include full stops or periods:

  • United States of America should be abbreviated as US without periods, not U.S.A. or U.S.
  • United Kingdom should be abbreviated as UK without periods, not U.K. (and not G.B. or GB, which is not coterminous with the UK)
