Wednesday, February 01, 2006 is the largest travel review site around, though its focus is mostly on selling hotel rooms. I heard that it was purchased by Expedia in 2005 to add some Web 2.0 to the Expedia website, though other than listing TripAdvisor as a "partner," there is no sign of this on eiter website.

TripAdvisor is far from the community comment tool that and are, but I would guess that they are looking at those sites for future development of their own.

From their website:

  • 3,000,000+ unbiased reviews and opinions you can trust
