Tripadvisor launches officially in India, quietly in Japan

As we revealed in May, Tripadvisor is setting its sights on the Far East and the Indian subcontinent.

A few months earlier than expected, but the world's biggest hotel review site has unveiled its Indian site today,

A good move for the Expedia-owned site, of course, although one wonders why India was chosen first rather than China, given the enormous attention the 2008 Olympic host is currently getting.

Anyway, still blank.

But check out the flags at the bottom of a number of the Tripadvisor country site homepages and you'll notice that Tripadvisor Japan is also up and running in Beta.

Global domination beckons...
