Cities, towns, and more
 
We have city pages for all the capitals of the world, as well as, major towns or villages for other places such as islands and territories. We believe you will find using our World Cities section a pleasant and worthwhile experience. We have no pop-ads and our other ads, with few exceptions, are to the sides of the information we present.  We like it that way and think you will too.

Ah Wilderness! City Notes:  We have a page for each capital city of a country and sometimes for some other cities, towns or villages that are popular tourist or adventure travel destinations. The fact that we list a city in a disputed territory does not mean we are making a political statement.  We just want to help people learn about the city in case they want to visit it.  External links always open in a new window.
City Names. The common name for a city is used instead of the official name because that is the one you will most likely know.  If a city has changed its name in the last 20-30 years,  you can usually search by the former name using our A-Z City Finder in the left column or above.  Also, some cities consist of a combined name or are commonly known by two different names. You can usually search by either name.
    
Affiliations.  We are an affiliate of Expedia, Amazon.com and some other travel and language websites.  A complete list is on our Village Shop page.  However, we believe in helping you find the travel and language information you need regardless of any affiliations. We research and find both popular and other useful web sites with good information to help you plan your trip. We also believe in getting you directly to information on other websites and are usually able to drop you off at their page with the information.
    
The 3-Click Rule.  We are a firm believer in the 3-click rule and it is unfortunate that it wasn't included in our American Bill of Rights!  It should take you no more than 3 clicks to get anywhere on our website.  Please let us know if we break that rule.  If there are problems with a page or you have ideas for additional links, please send an email to the Webmaster using our Feedback Page. Thanks!
 
 Guide To Our City Pages
 
  • Links To Travel Guides and Travel Agencies. Our city pages will usually link you directly to the page on some popular travel guide sites for the city.  We have our standard set of travel sites and we usually try to find some travel sites in English that originate from the country itself. We also link to some popular travel agencies. External links always open in a new window.
     
  • Links To Place Page.  Each city page has a link to our place page where the city is located.
     
  • Links To Language Pages.  Each city page has a link to our language page for each major language spoken there.  Our language pages have links to websites that offer free online-lessons, translation dictionaries and automatic translation websites. We also link to some sites that offer commercial language products such as phrasebooks, dictionaries and language learning software.
     
  • City Toolbars.  A city page may have one or more Toolbars. We plan to eventually have toolbars for all our city pages. These toolbars make it easy to find essential tourist information for the city and also to go there virtually sometimes via a webcam or a 360 degree virtual photographic tour.

To all Travelers and Tourists

Take a minute out of your life on this planet and enjoy some travel wisdom. Here are some of our favorites:
"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness."
-Mark Twain
 
"The world is a book and those who do not travel read only one page."  - St. Augustine
 
"He who would travel happily must travel light."
-Antoine de Saint-Exupery

 
"One of the gladdest moments of human life, me thinks, is the departure upon a distant journey into unknown lands. Shaking off with one mighty effort the fetters of habit, the leaden weight of routine, the cloak of many cares and the slavery of home, man feels once more happy"
-Sir Richard Burton, the explorer
 
"To travel is to discover that everyone is wrong about other countries."  - Aldous Huxley
