I am sorry to find that even in its top destination of Europe 2008 - RHODES - TripAdvisor provides scant direct information in the link "Rhodes Overview". I have an idea that TripAdvisor used to provide a basic overview giving the history and some background knowledge for most destinations. Now the direct information is concentrated on hotels and background knowledge about the destination is left to traveller's reviews. No direct Overview is being provided by TripAdvisor.
I do hope this will change.
