  rdfs:comment "Continents are big sections of the globe. We've started with Asia, Africa, North America, etc., and a separate pseudo-continent of Island nations. There's not actually much practical travel information that can be given on, say, Asia, but it does provide a convenient container for the next level of hierarchy. "@en .

  rdfs:comment "A section is a division of a continent into a logical travel part. Classic examples are Southeast Asia or Northern Europe. Sometimes sections may not make sense, or may be equivalent to national boundaries. For example, it's natural to divide North America into Canada, the United States of America, Mexico, and Central America."@en .

  rdfs:comment "A region is a subnational division that is climatically, culturally, geographically, or politically coherent. Regions may lie along subnational borders -- like states in the USA, provinces in Canada, or departements in France -- but more often they are above this level. One could divide Vietnam, for example, into the North (Hanoi and environs), the Central Coast (Danang, Hoi An, Nha Trang), the Central Highlands (Dalat and nearby) and the South (Saigon and the Mekong Delta)."@en .

  rdfs:comment "A city is, in reality, the unit of travel guide geography. It's where you arrive to, where you go see sights, where you find a hotel, where you eat in restaurants, where you move on from when you're done. Wikitravel's definition of a "city" is flexible: they may be literal incorporated cities, but they can also be larger metropolitan areas with suburbs and satellite cities, like Los Angeles or Paris, or they can be smaller towns or villages, like Zermatt or Panmunjeom. Where suburbs, satellite cities, and villages deserve their own Wikitravel entries is a matter of judgement -- probably depending on the amount of information about those places. We have different templates to deal with cities of different sizes and complexity."@en .

  a rdfs:Class ;

  rdfs:subClassOf wts:Place ;
 +
  rdfs:comment "Some cities are just so big and so diverse that there's too much information to keep in one Wikitravel article. It'd make sense, then, to divide the city again into districts, so that practical info -- hotel listings, restaurants, bars, sightseeing attractions -- can get their due. Examples of districts in San Francisco would be San Francisco/Marina, San Francisco/Tenderloin, and San Francisco/Mission."@en .
