This is a reader-created Web site; all the information you see in Wikitravel was contributed by Internet users just like you. We're trying to create, illustrate, and edit a travel guide for the entire world, and we need your help. It's a humongous job. As they say, though, "Many hands make light work;" anything you can do to contribute is appreciated. You don't have to be an "expert" in travel; you just have to be interested enough to get started.
You're always welcome to plunge forward and make changes to any page on the site (including this one). Just click the Edit this page link, and you'll get a Web form that lets you change the contents of the page. Hit Save page, and your version is what's shown on the site. (If you're nervous, feel free to practice on the graffiti wall).
If you find yourself getting more involved, you may want to read our tips for new contributors. Our list of goals and non-goals give a good idea of what we're trying to do with Wikitravel. If you've got some specific info you want to share, we have some guidelines on where you can stick it (pun intended). You can also read our manual of style for more clues as to how to edit and layout guides, but don't worry too much about that stuff if you don't want. Don't forget to describe yourself on your user page to help other contributors to communicate with you (and even to ask for your help sometimes).
We have quite a bit of help documentation to make reading and editing Wikitravel as easy as we can.
If you have any questions about Wikitravel, please read our FAQ first to see if it's already answered. If not, feel free to ask your question in the travellers' pub, where friendly Wikitravellers will help guide your way.
