When listing things to See or Do in a destination, use the following format.

  • Name of Attraction, Address (extra directions if necessary), phone number (email, fax, other contact if possible), 1 (http://www.attraction.example.com/). Days and times open. One to five sentences about why this attraction is worth seeing, things to pay special attention to, warnings, notes, historical or other background information. $entryprice (extra price info).

Here's the Wiki markup:

*'''Name of Attraction''', Address (''extra directions if necessary''), phone number (''email, fax, other contact if possible''), http://www.attraction.example.com/. Days and times open. One to five sentences about why this attraction is worth seeing, things to pay special attention to, warnings, notes, historical or other background information. $entryprice (''extra price info'').

Here's an example from San Francisco/North Beach:

  • Coit Tower, 1 Telegraph Hill Blvd (limited parking; or take #39 Muni bus from Washington Square), 362-0808 (tour contact: Masha Zakheim <mzakheim@earthlink.net>), 2 (http://www.coittower.org/). Every day, 10AM-5PM. Visible from all parts of San Francisco and the Bay Area, Coit Tower stands atop Telegraph Hill, and gives an excellent view of the rest of the Bay. The tower was built by the federal Works Projects Administration in 1933 with money bequeathed by eccentric San Franciscan Lillie Coit. Coit had a fascination with firefighters, and local legend has it that the shape of the tower is supposed to simulate the end of a firehose -- although the architects denied this claim. The first and second floor house beautiful examples of New Deal-era idealist murals, and the top floor (reached by elevator) has featured paintings or other art. $3 (elevator to top floor; the rest is free).

Notes on the format:

  • Addresses should just be the street and number, not a full postal address. If the city is different (for example, in a suburb), add that, too.
  • Phone numbers should be in international format with the non-local calling part in italics (like "+1 514-555-1000").
  • Days should be abbreviated (M Tu W Th F Sa Su), times should be AM and PM. If the attraction never closes, use "Open 24 hours". If the times are the same for every day, use "Every day, opening time-closing time".
  • Entry prices should be in the local currency.
  • URLs should point to the official Web site for the attraction and conform to Wikitravel guidelines for external links. If there's no official Web site, just leave that part out.

Complex attractions

Some attractions are just too complex to list in the brief format above. There may be interesting historical information, detailed information about different parts of the attraction, or whatever. Examples might be:

  • Large museums
  • Large parks
  • Monuments with long histories

These kinds of attractions may need three or four paragraphs rather than sentences to treat them appropriately.

The difference here is by how much text is needed, not how important the attraction is. For example, the Manneken Pis is one of the most famous sights in Brussels, but there's only so much you can write about a small statue of a peeing boy. Importance of the attraction and how much text is needed are closely intertwined, but this format is keyed to the latter.

For complex attractions, we make a sub-section of the See or Do section with the following format:

===Name of attraction===

Address (''extra directions if necessary''), phone number (''email,
 fax, other contact if possible''), http://www.attraction.example.com/.  Days and times open. $entryprice 
 (''extra price info''). 

One to five paragraphs about why this attraction is worth seeing, things
to pay special attention to, warnings, notes, historical or other background
information.

Complex attractions should go at the end of the See or Do section, after any attractions in the list format above. Otherwise, it will look like the list-format attractions are part of the preceding complex attraction subsection.

A good example of a complex attraction is the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco.
