    Is Disneyland in Paris worth seeing?

    Not really. The french are much better at doing their own thing rather than the American package. Asterix World, also near Paris is better, as is Puy de Fou, which is a historical theme park, which my kids, 3,5 and 11 at the time absolutely loved. almost 7 years ago

    Going on a 6 day trip around Scotland in summer 2013. Any tips on activities and things to see ?

    Basically a good round trip is up the west coast to Ullapool back down the the East via Inverness and Dundee. Places to visit, assuming a start from Glasgow:- Hill-house, Helensburgh. Rennie Macintosh's masterpiece, gives you a nice drive up the Clyde. Drive on - stop at the Loch Fynne Oyster bar for sea food as fresh and good as it can be. Drive on to Inveraray, visit the Jail or the Castle, both great. You now have a classic bit of road in front of you to Oban - one of those used in adverts and car shows, absolutely ace. Stay over in Oban and visit the Observatory. You can then either scuttle over to Mull from where you could take trips to Iona and Staffa (Fingals Cave), or carry on up the west coast into 'the Big Stuff'. I'd recommend statying in Glencoe rather than Fort William and getting you boots on, if you are reasonably fit. You've got choices of classic and spectacular hill-walks which are all miles better than trogging up the Ben. If you are fit do go over to Fort William and walk the Ring of Steal rather than the Ben; absolutely ace. From there up through Torridon, again if you want to walk Slioch is a good one. The whole journey then is full of terrific country; mountains beaches and islands, and there are any number of diversions you could take, to the various islands and penninsulars, all of which are lovely. I'd recommend stopping in Gairloch, and visiting the tropical gardens at Inverewe. On to Ullapool, stay there. Back to Inverness. Stop in Dundee and vist the Discovery, whcih is permanently moored there. Edinburgh and Glasgow both have plenty to enjoy, but generally Glasgow is better and less pricey for a night out. Stirling Castle too is well worth a visit. The visitor Centre At New Lanark if you want a bit of industrial history in a beautiful setting that you won't get anywhere else in the world. Further south Drumlanrig Castle is an amazing slice of british aristocratic priviliedge (thieving b's). Culzean Castle too, (a bit closer to the central belt). Plan yourself an itinery, maybe with a few of those places and a distillery visit or two chucked in, come over and enjoy. almost 7 years ago

    Please advise where it is better to spend a one week holiday: Maldives, Mauritius or Seyshelles?

    Mauritius has the most variety and interest. All of them will give you the scuba diving you want. Aprt from that you won't get anything like the choices you have in Mauritius; food, bars, other places of interest etc. almost 7 years ago

    Travelling in Paris by car,they have a rules in round about or in the cross road like GIVE WAY to other users?thanks

    There are rules but they don't get observed. Basically there is too much traffic coming onto the big roundabouts and it ends up a bit of a free for all. The best way to deal with it, as with most city centres, is not to be there at the busiest times. Park up and use the trains. If you do have to be there then stay patient and be prepared to be forceful if you need to be as Virgil says. about 7 years ago

    Best time to visit Scotland nature?

    May is usually the best month as the midges haven't usually got going properly. You will get varied weather but if you've got the gear it's oftern also a very beautiful month. June is often wetter and in April it can still be pretty cold and windy. about 7 years ago

    Which parks would you recommend for a summer picnic in London?

    The best park for a picnic in London, and I'm amazed it isn't mentioned is Richmond Park. Take your frisbee, balls, cricket or rounders stuff as well and have some fun; there's plenty of room. Alexandra Park, Muswell Hill is also pretty ace for a picnic. Big views, stuff going on. about 7 years ago

    is the train from paris to nice then monaco a trip worth doing?

    It is. The train down the Cote D'Azur is simply the best way to travel along that region. It follws the coastline and stops at all the right places. The alternative by road is often a nightmare as it gets extremely jammed up and can take hours to get between the towns, if you don't give up. over 7 years ago
