http://somuchworld.com is not such a well known site but is great for all destinations. A bit light on amount of content but tidy. I like it a lot.

Not a forum, but I really like a site called inromenow.com, with one favorite feature: events, concerts etc happening in the current week (plus regularmusic events.)

My least favorite, now gone, was one where the archive was basically non existent. It would disappear completely every few weeks - if you think the same questions get asked over and over here, imagine having to deal with that.

Slowtravel sent me a Trojan twice (it was quite obvious that I caught it there and nowhere else),so I'm not going back there.

Besides Fodor's, I'm a regular on the Thorn Tree, now and then posting on FlyerTalk, and on two German Australia forums.

fodors, virtualtourist, thorntree-lonelyplanet, le routard (in french) and slowtrav are the travel forums I frequent. this order probably reflects my favor.

So what - the same questions come up here all the time. It's laboursaving to resussitate an old thread.

I like the Trip Advisor forums. Sometimes they move faster than Fodors.

specifically, a Trojan Horse is a file (email, attachment, or another web file) that hides something nasty inside. When you open it, out comes the enemy ...

I used to enjoy TripAdvisor, but lately there's a few forums that have become nothing more than personal chat rooms. Good reviews and info still to be found but it takes more time to find it. They do have a miscellaneous forum for the purpose of general talk, but evidently some posters prefer not to use it. I am new here but have found good info and the kabbitzing here is, kudos to y'all, very entertaining. Also like Virtual Tourist and Slow Trav.

One feature of the Frommers site that I like is how they list the hotels. You can sort by area, price, etc and they give you links to websites. Its more organized than the hotel displays here.

But overall, Fodors is best due to this forum.

I prefer Fodor's because the participants are very reliable with information. I used Fodor's for recommendations, and backed it up with reviews on TripAdvisor - solid info either place.

I like Trip Advisor. I find that sometimes I can get much more specific information about a location, especially for less popular destinations. Because it is divided up into specific countries / states, alot of locals check in regularly.
