I do a lot of travel planning and find wading through all the written information on tripadvisor or in guide books to be too time consuming. Who has found a good source for well produced travel guides in video format?
video.travelwizard.com Nice sight, good info around globe
I love 'We Said Go Travel' - Here's a link to their YouTube channel, with lots of good info! http://www.youtube.com/user/WeSaidGoTravel I hope this helps!
A great website just to get a brief understanding of a place, culture, art and food is project explorer.org. It is not specifically travel based as it is a non-profit educational service. However, it may serve as a good starting point.
Tripadvisor.com will be a good place to get info on any place and point you to other resources.
