The best travel subreddits
I am 100% addicted to reddit. Not only is it a great community basis for every and anything but it is fantastic to get travel tips from locals and those who have travelled to “said destination”. Here are some of the best general travel communities. On top of this, I suggest doing your own research on particular countries or cities you are going to visit. I have added links to what I think is the most valuable content on each subreddit.
Warning: Rabit hole alert – There is A LOT of information below!
r/travel is a community about exploring the world. Your pictures, questions, stories, or any good content is welcome. Clickbait, spam, memes, ads, brochures, classifieds, surveys or self-promotion will be removed. There are some AMAZING photos and recommendations on this travel subreddit. I couldn’t help but add some but have linked back to the photographer.
