Fallout 3 is located in a post apocalyptic Washington DC, and if i am right, the cities will not be cities, will be "vaults" but how big will the vaults will be?? how many vaults will be in the whole map? vaults are the only type of "city/town" in the game, or there will be other types of "cities/towns"???

You're notentirely wrong, but neither are you right. The vaults will be around the open world in certain places. These vaults will be where people will have been sheltered during the apocalypse that created the barren wastelands that you will explore. There are many structures and landscapes [actually just one] that you wil be exploring from ghost towns, damaged cities, barren wastelands, fortified supermarkets, private hotels that double as shelters etc.

When you reach level 20 you can choose a perk that will show you all the locations on the map. But you still have to travel to them first to fast travel there.

Here is a map of all the locations. The descriptions are under the map of what the number means.

I full map is really not needed. If you get close enough to a "new" thing you see the tiny unfilled triangle on the compass. I found both Vault 108 and 106 this way.

A word of warning about 106. Dont worry your machine is not broken. Thats all I am gonna say.

when you reach lvl 20, there is a perk called "explorer". That gives you all the locations

Answered right there quite a while ago. No need to revive this dead thread (from 2008 ) to answer a question that was already answered.
