    How safe is Kuta for women?

    Hi Kate Like anywhere, there are dangers and as long as you know what to look out for, you should be ok. Drink spiking is still quite common in Kuta in particular nightclubs, so keeping an eye on your drink and only drinking in reputable bars is recommended. Many motorbike injuries happen when holiday makers suddenly think they can ride a bike drunk - sans helmet and lessons. Dehydration (and gastro) is pretty common, its easy to drink a lot of alcohol in the tropics and not realise - if you replace every second drink with a bottle of water you'll be fine. Same for sunstroke, a wide brimmed hat is key! Bali is a gorgeous place, but there are dangers despite what some people say. Lisa over 5 years ago

    Good budget for a 6 month trip around SE Asia?

    It all depends on what you want to do, where you want to stay, and how you want to get around. I'd say on average, a minimum daily budget should be - $20 Food - $20 Accommodation - $10 Transport - $2 Internet cafe / Phone You should probably also factor in some incident costs like sunscreen, clothes, laundry, alcohol, tips and "medical" AND of course your travel insurance (which obviously is an upfront costs). over 5 years ago

    Chobe National Park in one day trip from Livingstone with 3 year old child - is it possible?

    We did this as a self-drive safari, I'm sure this is possible on a day trip as well. It can be a long day between animals, so make sure you pack enough distractions for the child, including plenty of scheduled "pit stops". over 5 years ago

    Is there a express lane for families at the Airport in Bali?

    There is now a new process on entering Bali if you fly with Garuda Airlines. You buy your visa at check in before departure and a customs officer is on the plane and will process your VOA on the plane just before you land. It then means you dont have to line up for a visa on arrival. over 5 years ago

    Sights/activities in Denpasar?

    A trip/taxi to Ubud from the airport can take up to 2 hrs depending on traffic so keep this in mind if planning on a quick day trip. I love Ubud. Its very chilled, loads of great restaurants and cafe's and an easy place to walk around. Denpasar isnt that fun, so can be missed if you're time poor. over 5 years ago

    Where to go in Fiji and what to do!?

    Are you the adventure type family? Last year my husband and sons took two weeks to sea kayak around Kadavu (one of the island), stopping at villages along the way. They loved it. If you're more of a resort traveller, then most of the resorts cater to kids (kids club, day trips, snorkelling, swimming, fire dances, kava drinking etc). over 5 years ago
