What's the difference between a forum and a review?

A review is a traveler's individual evaluation (including a 1-5 rating) of a specific accommodation, restaurant, or attraction listed on TripAdvisor. Each traveler may submit reviews for accommodations, restaurants, or attractions that meet our guidelines but there is no interaction with other travelers.

Forums on the other hand, are not the place to submit a review, but are discussion boards where travelers can ask (and answer) as many travel-related questions as they like, share personal travel experiences and get travel advice from fellow members.
