Please include adequate text with the link explaining what it is about and describing the content from a helpful travel perspective.Example: We really enjoyed the Monterey Bay Aquarium in California. It was $35 each, but there's enough to keep you entertained for whole day. Bear in mind that parking on site is quite pricey, but if you go up the hill about 200m there are three $15/all day car parks. Monterey AquariumUnhelpful: Read my blog here!!!Helpful: My favourite part of driving down the PCH was the wayside parks. I wrote a blog post about some of the best places to stop, including Battle Rock, Newport and the Tillamook Valley Cheese Factory (try the fudge and ice cream!).Unhelpful: Eat all the curry! [picture of a curry].Helpful: The best food we tried in Myanmar was at the Karawek Cafe in Mandalay, a street-side restaurant outside the City Hotel. The surprisingly young kids that run the place stew the pork curry[curry pic] for 8 hours before serving [menu pic]. They'll also do your laundry in 3 hours, and much cheaper than the hotel.Undescriptive I went to Mandalay. Here's my photos/video.As the purpose of these is to create a reference guide to answer some of the most repetitive questions, please do keep the content on topic.
