    Has anyone has used airbnb to book accommodation in NYC? Is it ok? Also, upper East Side, Downtown, Village, Westside etc....where to stay?

    If you haven't been to NYC before, Midtown is probably the best location. You are smack bang in the middle of things, good access to subways and a lot of stuff (Times Square, Empire State) is walking distance. Try Hotel Stanford - fantastic location, very close to Broadway, subway and an excellent pizza shop!!! Good standard and affordable. http://www.hotelstanford.com/ over 7 years ago

    Can you do the Road to Hana and Haleakala NP in one day?

    Not if you acutally want to enjoy yourself! The road to Hana (and back) can be done in one day if you like, however if you have the time, staying the night in Hana is a good idea. It's a long drive, that can be slow depending on the traffic - but definitely worth it. Giving yourself more time also allows you to see much more at the Hana end like hiking up to the pools of Oheo. Try and get up to the top of Haleakala for sunrise - it's freezing, so wear warm clothing. The sunrise is amazing! over 7 years ago

    tips for trips to New York?

    1) Get a good guidebook and decide what things you really want to do and see 2) stay somewhere central. If it's your first visit to NYC midtown is great, make sure you're near a subway station - try www.hotelstanford.com 3) book a couple of organised tours if you want to have someone show you the sights, the red site seeing busses are a great way to get a feeling for the layout of Manhattan 4) buy a city pass - it includes entry to all the main attractions (MET, Museum of Natural History, Ferry to Liberty/Ellis Island, Empire State, Top of the Rock etc). You get a pretty decent discount and don't have to wait in line to buy tickets 5) Don't buy entry to stuff from guys on the street - they're rip offs and will sell you stuff that you just don't need 6) be prepared to walk - a lot 7) if you want to climb up into the crown of the statue of liberty book really early. It sells out 4-6 monhts in advance 8) eat a tonne of pizza coz it's awesome! 9) go to a yankees game 10) see a broadway show - go to TKTS in Times Square for some great deals over 7 years ago
