NEW YORK (AP) — Had Jani Patokallio relied solely on a
printed travel guidebook to plan a recent trip to Cambodia, he might
have skipped a visit to Sihanoukville, turned off by talk of bumpy bus
rides, bombed out buildings and kidnappings.
But after checking
out Wikitravel, one of several free sites that let travelers themselves
share information and reviews, he learned the seaside town has changed
since the book’s printing.
