    How strict is the policy on bringing food?

    Often if it is in a factory sealed pack with labels listing the ingredients, and it is processed food (rather than something natural that could carry pathogens harmful to aus farming) then they let you keep it. But definitely declare everything on entry because there are sniffer dogs and the fines are very steep if you try to sneak food in. I have found that the quarantine staff are very reasonable give you the opportunity to get everything checked and ask questions. about 4 years ago

    How are your best experience in phuket ,thailand?

    So far ... A day on the water out in Phang Nga Bay with the June Bahtra crew. The stop at James Bond island stop off was a bit over the top touristy, but being out in that bay all day on a beautiful slow boat with a fabulous crew was amazing! http://www.asian-oasis.com/product/june-bahtra-cruises-the-spirit-of-phang-nga-bay/ about 5 years ago

    where to eat in Tokyo

    So this is not so much about Tokyo in particular, but rather some general ideas about good value food we discovered in Japan. Our target was something around the 500-800 yen mark. Some great places we found to hunt cheap food were: Convenience stores - they often have pretty good bento and onigiri. The basement levels of the department stores often have very large food markets loaded with bento, pastries, tempura yummies, salads, juices. If you find some small bars, wander in behind the curtains because they usually have great bar food ... tempura, grilled meats etc... We also found that supermarkets discount their fresh food in the evening so it can be a great place to get some bargains. about 5 years ago

    Transport from Haneda Airport to Narita Airport

    There's a great app I would recommend that searches the transport routes in Japan. It's called HYPERDIA. It will also calculate the fare and even take into account whether or not you have a JR rail pass. about 5 years ago

    Any one advise on cheap accomodation and the bext way to get around Hiroshima?

    We loved Hana Hostel ( it may be called Hana Hotel) .... they had everything we needed and were a very short walk from Hiroshima station. The hosts were some of the most helpful we had found in Japan. and the common room was always full of friendly people hanging out. It is also a very family friendly Hostel. about 5 years ago

    What advise or tips can you give on clothing, gears, where to buy food for a 1yr old baby when travelling in Osaka during winter

    There is a collection of outdoor stores ( if that's the sort of clothing gear you are after) near Osaka station. The first bunch is in an arcade called "Albi". The second bunch is in the Grand Front Osaka building all together on on floor (I think it was level 5) about 5 years ago
