Best Travel Sites OOAworld Photo Ooaworld

Below is a list of some of the best travel sites, best travel blogs and other resources providing some of the best travel tips and information around the Web.

This list is comprised of websites that we personally read or use to help during travel journeys.

Because people’s interests are varied, I’ve divided the best travel sites into the following categories:

Best Top Twenty Travel Sites OOAworld Photo Ooaworld

I curated the following based on a mix of personal preferences, traffic rankings and public acclaim:

1) This list is by no means complete, nor is it objective. The category rankings are somewhat arbitrary and subjective, since these days most travel sites and travel blogs produce great content that falls under multiple categories (to feature a wide range of resources, each site appears in only one category).

2) This list is bound to evolve: I’ll be adding information and updating it regularly, and would love to hear your suggestions.

3) I hope it offers a good overview of some of the best travel sites out there, as well as a useful starting point for your travels – it certainly has for us!

Thanks to all the other bloggers and people who have also compiled thorough and well-researched lists, some of which I’ve used and linked to – with no exception, they’re all themselves featured! Hope this helps you with your travels and exploring the world, have fun!

Top 20 Best Travel Sites and Best Travel Blogs by Ranking

The following list of Top 20 travel sites is based on quantitative measurements such as traffic rankings, Alexa score and Google Analytics. It is by no means scientific or hard-ranked; instead I’ve used a combination of the work done by 3 top travel bloggers to extract my favorite 20 high-traffic travel sites.

For more detailed lists and information on their process:

See the list by Nomadic Samuel on his Top 100 Travel Blogs – the father of all top travel blog lists, Nomadic Sam has been travel blogging and featuring the best travel bloggers since for ever, based on a combination of factors. Also factored in is a similar ranking by Brendan’s Adventures. As well as one by Matt Stabile, Founder of TheExpeditioner.com, on his Top 50 Travel Blogs – Most Visited (Unique Visitors).  Matt contacted some top travel bloggers and asked them if they could share their Google analytics (it also has the added benefit of providing social media handles straight from that page).
