    5 Days on Flores Island

    Head down to the wharf in Labuan Bajo and find yourself a friendly fisherman who will take you out for a few days around the island. Sleeping on the boat is heaven, as is diving in the water for snorkelling with manta rays, seahorse, and loads of other stunning sealife. Obviously you cant go to Flores without a visiting Komodo Dragons. Both Rinca and Komodo Island are fairly the same, but my pick is Komodo. A quick visit to the village is fun, take some local currency to exchange with the locals who seem to be given a lot of foreign notes from the cruise ship visitors. We also went trekking up the mountains behind Labuan Bajo to the most magnificent waterfalls and bat caves. A hard trek, but worth it. Don't wear white! If you need a good hotel recommendation - I can suggest Golo Hilltop. over 6 years ago

    I'm looking for a wool felt making workshop or factory tour in Kathmandu.

    There is a lovely little shop called "Didi's" in Kathmandu run by women, which supports village projects. You can visit the workshop and see all kinds of craft's being made and then purchase for reasonable prices. I would steer clear of factory tours of carpets and other "attractions" as often they will be run by unethical people who exploit children (child slave labour). Walking throughout the streets of Kathmandu you will likely be approached by people offering a carpet tour, so please either research prior or ask a lot of questions to avoid supporting such organisations. over 7 years ago

    What is the cheapest form of public transportation I can take to get from Newark International into Manhattan?

    I hired a private driver through Executive Limousines - it was cheaper than a taxi and quicker than the train. All I wanted after an 18hr flight to NY was a comfy place to rest my head for a few hours :) I believe it cost about $45USD from Newark to downtown. over 7 years ago

    What months would be best to travel in Vietnam and Cambodia?

    The best time that I have spent in those countries has been June/July. The tourists are fewer and the weather is still lovely - with a nice reprieve in the afternoon of a light shower. The rainy season also means greener rice paddies. The Rainy season: From June till October 27-35.C (80-95.f) The Dry season (cool): From November till February 17-27.C (80-95.F) The Dry season (Hot) : From March till May 29-38.C (84-100.F) over 7 years ago

    A friend & I are planning on traveling to Fiji to explore & island hop for the summer. Any tips? Cheap extended stay/camping/hostels? Thanks

    Hmmmm, I think perhaps you have just finished watching the Blue Lagoon. Fiji isn't really a place where you would really think about camping, and fishing for your food. I"m sure you can do it, but it would certainly be frowned upon by the locals. If you are not into resort living (and lets face it, thats Fiji) - then consider renting a private Bure or Villa. They start fairly basic and go to the extreme luxury. To be honest, I found Fiji rather expensive for what it was. over 7 years ago

    Where is the best place to go during December in Australia?

    Over the New Year there is a fantastic music and arts festival just west of Brisbane in Woodford. "Woodford Folk Festival" http://www.woodfordfolkfestival.com.au/ It goes for about 7 days starting boxing day, and ends on 1st Jan with a brilliant Fire Festival. You can camp there as well, or stay in close bye Caboulture or Maleny and drive. (there may be shuttle buses). almost 7 years ago

    Where is the best places to stay in Bali?

    It really depends on your interests. I always try to avoid Kuta / Legian etc because they tend to be overcrowded, but thats just me. If I have to stay in those areas, I choose Seminyak. Its close to restaurants and cafes as well as some nice shopping. Being in these areas means traffic though and for me an island holiday is best without all the noise. Last year we rented a private villa in Ubud that we found on a last minute website and it was amazing. A 2 bedroom villa 15mins out of Ubud with our private swimming pool, maid, driver, masseuse and chef cost us only $280 per night. over 7 years ago
