Many of the articles in Wikitravel can benefit from links to Wikipedia articles on the same subject. A Wikitravel article tends to focus on the issues facing travelers for a destination, but Wikipedia articles can have deeper or broader information on a topic.

To add a link to a Wikipedia article on the same subject, add a link of the form [[WikiPedia:Article title on Wikipedia]]. (Note the capital "P"; it's a long story.) The link will not appear in the main text of the article page on Wikitravel, but will instead show up automatically in the section "Other sites/languages".

Add a Wikipedia link to the very end of an article, to keep the article uncluttered. Avoid adding more than one Wikipedia link; the link you add should be to an article on exactly the same topic.

If you need to make a link to Wikipedia for an article that isn't exactly the same, just put a colon in front of the "WikiPedia", like this: [[:WikiPedia:Article title on Wikipedia]]. That will show the link in-line.
