Guide books can never come close to capturing real time, personal travel experiences and tips. Here’re some Indian travel portals that provide a unique, personal forum for travellers:

Indiamike.com — With almost 56,000 members and 67,000 discussion topics, this is one of the largest Indian travel portals around. Users can create a travel journal, write articles and hotel reviews, hold discussions and upload pictures.

Tripadvisor.in
— There are free travel guides, an extensive list of impartial, user-generated reviews and a goList, where you can make a wishlist of places you want to visit, the ten best restaurants you’ve been to and so on.

360indiaguide.com — Launched earlier this week, this is a unique virtual guide to destinations in South India. Here you can take virtual tours of tourist sites and hotel rooms through interactive, 360-degree panoramic images.

360cities.net — Much more extensive than 360indiaguide, this site features thousands of panoramic tourist destinations and hotels across the world.

60kph.com
— Adventurers and cross-country bikers can find information on routes, road conditions and places, tips, travelogues of road trips and even post photographs.

OkTataByeBye.com — A cool feature is the Travel Buddy section, where you can hook up with members for joint trips or join trips you like.
