    Activities to do while in Phuket

    What about a trip to the Hands Across the Water orphanage in Khoa Lak? If you take some children's clothes and books, I'm sure they would appreciate it :) http://handsacrossthewater.org.au/ over 7 years ago

    cheapest flight from sfo to Bali

    Bali is nowhere near Orlando or London??? Try searching the airlines that fly that route and then go from there. There are a few discount airfare websites you can search on. Here are 2 that I use regularly. - www.webjet.com - www.lastminute.com over 7 years ago

    Me and my wife want to travel to either New York City or San Francisco in September, can someone help us decide!

    How long have you got, and any reason why you cant do both? My all time fave in the US is NY and September (Autumn) in Central Park is stunning. The red leaves!! Oh! The red leaves. over 7 years ago

    What is the address of the best international hospital in Bali Please?

    If you find yourself in a situation requiring medical attention, always call your insurance company first. They may be aligned to a particular provider and can assist in direct payment as well as medical monitoring. International SOS has a very good clinic very close to BIMC. I would use them before anyone else (and I have!). I used to work with International SOS and found myself as an inpatient while on business in Bali, I had absolute faith in the system and had a good understanding of what went on in the background. I was looked after by two western doctors and a western nurse, as well as local medical officers. Intl SOS is clean, they use state of the art sterilising equipment (including sometimes autoclaving for other clinics......) and have global expert medical advice on hand overseeing all medical cases that go through. All expat catered clinics are expensive, from my experience BIMC is one of the more expensive ones and does not offer the same level of healthcare management that Intl SOS does. I also found that BIMC used questionable practices when diagnosing a patient which led to inflated pricing schedules. BIMC may have nicer rooms with private TV's and birch wood tables - but when it comes to managing a medical problem, interior design doesn't exactly count! over 7 years ago

    Can anyone recommend a hotel in midtown Manhattan--nothing pricey, but decent...Thanks!

    It depends what you mean by nothing pricey? I found that having an Australian credit card instantly put room prices up (probably because of the xchange rate). Two of the accomodation sites I use regularly are www.agoda.com www.easytobook.com Hope these help. over 7 years ago

    Where is the best place to find snakes around cairns

    Cairns is surrounded by bushland and rainforest, and known for the wildlife - including snakes! If you plan on a nice long bushwalk during the heat of the day, you are sure to find a snake or two on the tracks. If you prefer to see them in a more controlled environment, head to Cairns Night Zoo, or Cairns tropical zoo. over 7 years ago
