The [http://www.mediawiki.org/wiki/MediaWiki MediaWiki] software used to run Wikitravel offers the capability to automatically generate sophisticated HTML using [[Wikitravel:Using Mediawiki templates|templates]]. Templates are faster than typing manually, and keep common messages uniform across the site. New templates should be discussed before being created or modified.
  
With the Arabian Sea in the west, the Western Ghats towering 500-2700 ms in the east and networked by 44 rivers, Kerala enjoys unique geographical features that have made it one of the most sought after tourist destinations in Asia. An equable climate. A long shoreline with serene beaches. Tranquil stretches of emerald backwaters. Lush hill stations and exotic wildlife. Waterfalls. Sprawling plantations and paddy fields. Ayurvedic health holidays. Enchanting art forms. Magical festivals. Historic and cultural monuments. An exotic cuisine... All of which offer you a unique experience. And what's more, each of these charming destinations is only a two hour drive from the other. A singular advantage no other destination offers.

The list below shows most of the templates that are currently available, alongside brief explanations of how and where to use them, or you can see a complete list of [http://wikitravel.org/wiki/en/index.php?title=Special%3AAllpages&from=&namespace=10 all pages in the Template namespace].
  
Kerala, India's most advanced society: With hundred percent literacy. World-class health care systems. India's lowest infant mortality and highest life expectancy rates. The highest physical quality of life in India. Peaceful and pristine, Kerala is also India's cleanest state.

For administrative purpose, the state of Kerala is divided into fourteen districts. Most of these districts offer all the tourism products typical of the State.

Revision as of 08:17, 3 August 2012

The MediaWiki software used to run Wikitravel offers the capability to automatically generate sophisticated HTML using templates. Templates are faster than typing manually, and keep common messages uniform across the site. New templates should be discussed before being created or modified.

The list below shows most of the templates that are currently available, alongside brief explanations of how and where to use them, or you can see a complete list of all pages in the Template namespace.

Wiki Markup Purpose Template Display
{{disclaimerbox|disclaimer}} A disclaimer is a sparingly-used message, normally containing editorial content about policy decisions. A disclaimer should generally be discussed prior to being added to an article.

Here Tibet is used as a synonym for the Tibetan Autonomous Region (T.A.R.) of China not the historic Tibet in existance prior to the Chinese takeover. This is not a political statement. The strict restrictions on freedom of movement put on foreigners, sharply divides the T.A.R from ethnically Tibetan areas that form a geographic and cultural continuation of Tibet to the east of the T.A.R..

{{cautionbox|caution}} Used for non-life-threatening warnings that could affect a traveler's possessions, finances, or health, and other notices that need presentation in an attention-grabbing format. It should be used sparingly—only if normal prose is insufficient for some reason.

Travel Warning

NOTE: To avoid the unsavory, corrupt, and thoroughly untrustworthy booking services based in Kolkata, it is best to get a place to stay on arrival without advance reservation.


{{warningbox|warning}} Used to call out information that is vital to a traveler's safety, such as recent damage from a natural disaster, political instability, or some other serious condition. Warning boxes should be sparingly used and placed either at the top of an article or within the article section that is related to the warning.
Travel Warning WARNING: The effects of Hurricane Katrina severely damaged parts of New Orleans at the end of August, 2005, and it expected to take many months for the city to return to normality. As of Spring 2006, most services in the main travel centers (French Quarter, Central Business District, Garden District, and Faubourg Marigny) are back to normal; however, be prepared for contingencies if you're traveling outside the city center.
{{VisaRestriction|information}} Information about visa restrictions.
Travel Warning
Visa Restrictions:

Afghanistan, Algeria, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, and Yemen block passports containing stamps or visas from Israel. If you intend to visit any of these nations, ask immigration to stamp a blank page, rather than your passport, when entering.
