    Good backpacker accommodation in Phnom Penh?

    Also keep in mind that the average monthly salary there is ~$30. Use that as a guide to bargain for stuff if you're planning to do some shopping. For traditional food that has been served at royal functions, check out "amok" (made from boneless fish fillet) cooked in a bowl made from banana leaf. I was there Feb. 2011 and loved it. -Aspen about 7 years ago

    where to visit in Colorado this summer with 3 adolescents?

    Since you'll be in Boulder anyway, you can always take a short drive to the Rocky Mountain National Park and take a short hike around Bear Lake. over 7 years ago

    How prevalent are wifi hotspots in Japan?

    My iPad was useless when I was there last week. My hotel (a classy one in the Hanzomon business district) offers only a free wired connection. It was a big disappointment. They did have a laptop to rent out for ¥1000 a day. Smaller hotels and guest houses have better Net services. over 7 years ago

    Is Japan Sea coast safe to visit?

    I just returned from Toyko and the government are taking strict precautions regarding radiation. I didn't have any issues eating delicious seafood at Tsujiki Fish Market. I went to the Sagami Coast in Kamakura and didn't see or hear of any major concern for radiation. Have fun! over 7 years ago

    How is age calculated in Korea?

    Culturally age is a sign of respect...this is given automatically. Some of my Asian friends add a few years to their age to get respect....desperate bastards but I love them. Hahaha! over 7 years ago

    Is it safe to travel to China with a laptop with unpublished data on the hard drive?

    Some hotels rent laptop out so you can work directly off your jump drive. If you need Internet, there are many Internet cafes. I don't recommend you putting sensitive stuff on you laptop and then taking it for travel. They should be on a secured cloud for accessing and not physically carried. over 7 years ago

    Going to Tokyo in July. Spend 2 nights at DisneySea and 7 nights in Tokyo, in the Ikebukuro area. What we need to not miss in Tokyo?

    I just came from Tokyo, Nagoya, and Kyoto. I loved it -- clean and super polite. You can walk around the Hanzomon business district (the heart of Japan's parliamentary politics), evening visit to Shinjuku and Akihabara for food and electronics (it glows brighter than Vegas), early morning visit to Tsukiji Fish Market to see the bidding process and have brunch (the longer the line the better the food...all fresh), walk or jog along the imperial compound and see Kusunoki Masashige statue in full samurai uniform and the Tokyo Skyline (he's the epitome of knightly loyalty). Cab base fare is 710¥. If you've a day to spare, spend 890¥ ($10.15) for a 40-min. train ride to Kamakura to see the famous Daibatsu / great Buddha and enjoy the food and treat in this tiny town. For minor spending on snacks, orange juice, etc. stop by any Lawson, Family Mart, or 711 shops. Enjoy! over 7 years ago

    How safe is it for a young woman to travel on her her own to Turkey?

    My friend from Poland went there alone and she felt safe. The only complaint I heard from her was the haggling she received from the markets and shops. Do post your experience in Travel Pod or Word Press as I'd like to know of your take. I'm planning to visit 7/4 to 7/14 then to Italy :). Have fun! over 7 years ago
