Suggestion: Printer-friendly listings

Posted by pauljaymes on 26/7/2006 at 00:18

There may be good reasons you don't want to do this, but the wonderful accomodation listings on travelfish aren't much use when you arrive somewhere new and need somewhere to stay. OK, so you can sit in advance and write down the details of all the places you like the look of, but who has the time or patience for that? Not me, and what if the ones you write down are full? So, wouldn't it be cool if you could hit 'print' on a listings page and produce a condensed one or two page summary of all ...

Do you want to read about bad places?

Posted by somtam2000 on 17/7/2006 at 19:06

In the past we've listed both the good and the bad when it comes to accommodation and eating options, but now, with thousands of places listed, we're thinking of removing some of the places we didn't think were so hot and instead concentrating on the better and best places to stay and eat. As the reader, do you find bad listings useful? Do you want to be warned off the flophouse with festy bathrooms and a thousand dogs that start barking at 4am or would you rather we just don't list places li ...

The Times on good websites

Posted by somtam2000 on 14/7/2006 at 05:54

The Times Online has released a list of what they consider to be "The 108 best travel websites"... We didn't make the cut unfortunately -- in fact very little out of Asia did. Take a look at their list here, and if you really think Travelfish belong on that list, you can let them know! ;-) ...

Travelfish turns three!

Posted by somtam2000 on 12/7/2006 at 11:57

Travelfish turns three today and we just wanted to say a big thankyou to everyone who has used the site and contributed in even the smallest way to help making travelfish the success that it is. It's been a long but very satisfying three years as we've watched the site slowly grow from a small website that covered little more than Khao San Road to a pretty substantial affair that covers four countries and contains independent reviews on over 2,500 guesthouses and hotels in the region along wi ...

Researchers wanted - Vietnam and Laos

Posted by somtam2000 on 22/6/2006 at 10:16

We're looking for one or two researchers based in Vietnam and one in Laos. Please see our jobs section for more information. We're looking for two Vietnam-based and one Laos-based native-English speaking researchers to expand content for the Travelfish (www.travelfish.org) website. This is part-time, contract-based work -- ideally suited to those who travel frequently within Vietnam or Laos and enjoy it. This is not full-time work -- you will need other work to pay your mortgage. ...

Travelfish T-shirts help us out and win $50!

Posted by somtam2000 on 30/4/2006 at 07:22

We've just opened the Travelfish propaganda department -- an online store where you can purchase a range of T-shirts emblazoned with Travelfish propaganda. The range is a little limited at the moment (haven't got around to designing the Travelfish thong and fridge magnets yet), but we thought we'd get things started and what better way than with a competiton! All you need to do is suggest a slogan to run under our logo -- the only limitation is it can't be more than 100 characters in lengt ...

Travelfish login woes...

Posted by somtam2000 on 22/1/2006 at 17:13

One of the most common emails we get are from people who have signed up as Travelfish members but cannot login. 99.9999999% of the time, the reason they have been unable to login is because they didn't read the instructions when they joined! After you join an email will be sent to you with a link that you MUST click on to "activate" your account. We do this is stop people from signing up with emails other than their own email or with false addresses. If you lost or never received the "a ...
