I am looking for someone (or people) to write some climate/best time to visit information for each country.

The writing should be about one or two paragraphs per country and include things such as transport availability and public holidays.

A good example would be to look at a travel guidebook and look at where it might say best time to visit.

I am willing to pay for this. I am not sure of the price but please don't expect to become rich from this.

The plan is to include the data on the site projectvisa.com, so if you want some sort of recognition for your work we can work something out.

Any suggestions/comments are welcome.

With 194 countries on the map, and 2 paragraphs each, I wonder why you've not established a set rate for this project. Is it negotiable? Per word? Per country? Are you contracting writers? Do you have a time limit? Please offer a few more specifics.

I agree with girlgoesglobal, you really have to be a bit more specific about how much text you require for each country.

If you want information about climate, public holidays and transport availability, you are going to need more than 1 or 2 paragraphs.

You are also going to need a less ugly site that isn't so obviously just designed to get a high search index rank so you can sell ad space.
