Det kan vara svårt att veta vad som är ett relevant ämne för en artikel på Wikitravel, eller hur detaljerad man egentligen kan vara. Dessutom ställs man inför svårigheten som orsakas av två jämbördiga principer:

  1. Artiklarna bör vara relativt heltäckande, så att resenärer kan skriva ut dem och ta med sig var de än reser.
  2. På samma gång får artiklarna inte vara så långa att
  1. We'd like to have articles that are relatively self-sufficient -- that travellers can print out, put in their back pocket, and use for travelling around.
  2. At the same time, we don't want articles that are so long that it's impossible to read, print, or use them.

So, here are some rough guidelines for what topics should have their own articles, and what shouldn't. Nothing here is set in stone, but exceptions to these guidelines should have good justifications.

  • Individual attractions should not have their own articles (in general). Their information should be listed in the city or possibly district that they're in. So there should not be articles about individual:
    • restaurants
    • museums
    • hotels
    • bars
    • city parks
    • statues
    • town squares
    • department stores
    • night clubs
    • festivals
    • events
    • transport systems

We prefer that attractions, sites, and events be included in the article for the place they're located (see where you can stick it for details). But we make rare exceptions for attractions, sites or events that are far away (too far for a day trip) from any city and would require an overnight stay, or so large and complex that the information about them would overload the city article. Some examples of possible exceptions include:

In general, a good rule of thumb is that information about attractions, sites, and events should always be initially placed into the article for the place they're located in, and only when that information becomes large and complex should a new article be considered. As with most decisions on Wikitravel, consensus drives the process, but we try to err on the side of consistency and not make these exceptions unless we absolutely have to.

In addition, the following categories of articles are given their own articles:
