    What is the best way to get from London to Edinburgh?

    If you're on a budget take a coach. Try out http://www.nationalexpress.com/coach/index.cfm or http://mobile.usablenet.com/mt/us.megabus.com?un_jtt_redirect if money's tight. I took a 9 and a half hour night bus from Glasgow to London..it wasn't the most comfortable trip but it was cheap and I got there around 8am so I had the whole day in the city. over 8 years ago

    Trying to plan a trip in May for three people to Ireland. Hoping to stay a few nights in Dublin, Galway. Any ideas to help save $...?

    Hostels are definitely the way to go. Every hostel I've stayed at in Ireland (a lot) have been clean, relatively cheap, and had a great location. Try www.hostelworld.com or www.hostelbookers.com and have a look through each hostel's reviews. If you're up for an adventure I'd give couchsurfing a go as well. There are tons of open couches in Ireland and the people are so friendly here. www.couchsurfing.com just make sure you properly screen each profile and only stay with members that have hosted before and have references. Couchsurfing is free and lots of the time your host will show you around the city...but if you're interested in doing your own thing you're better off with a hostel. For Dublin I'd recommend the Four Courts Hostel. It's about 16.50 Euro a night but you can also get private rooms for groups of 2 or 3. They've got great reviews, they're clean, the staff is friendly, and better yet, you're right in the city centre! Bring your own towel with you because most hostels in Ireland will charge you to rent one. Cork is a great city for shopping and Blarney is about a 20 min bus ride from the city centre bus station www.buseireann.ie (Blarney Castle and grounds and the Blarney Stone which if kissed gives you the gift of the gab). Try out the Belvedere Lodge for a more B and B experience. It's a bit of a walk from the city centre but relatively close to the train station. Galway is by far my favorite Irish city. Located along the seaside this city has the feel of a close knit town and has theeeee best night life! Try out Garvey's Pub in Eyre Square and make sure you get a day tour out to the Connemara region. Stay at the Woodquay hostel in the city centre..they've a kitchen, tons or rooms, and offer pamphlets for tours to the Cliffs of Moher and the Aran Islands. The train in Ireland is ridiculously expensive so I'd recommend taking the bus everywhere...you can get cheap fares from city to city (as low as 5 Euro) and it doesn't take much longer. www.buseireann.ie Booking online will also be cheaper than buying them at the station but you MUST print off your booking reference or else they won't let ya on the bus. Hope this helped! over 8 years ago

    what should i visit in oahu hawaii

    I think sticking to the more local areas is a better way to experience Oahu...if you're looking for a nice beach, no tourists, try Maili or Waianae on the western side of the island. For a killer workout hike up Koko Head or Diamond Head Mountains (do so before noon as you'll melt during the hike). Pearl Harbour is also a good thing to visit while you're here. By far the best part of the island is North Shore..check out the "Art is..." house where you'll find a yard full of spray painted surf boards in Haleiwa. Right outside of Honolulu there's a forest reserve with some great hiking trails. Hope this helped! over 8 years ago

    What are some recommended places to visit in Morocco?

    Visiting the Souks in any of the bigger cities is a must but make sure you get out of the city and experience some of the culture. I spent 3 days in the Dades Valley in a village called Boumalne Dades. The people there are so welcoming and are more than willing to share their history with you. Lots of times Berber nomads from the mountains will come into the village to sell their carpets and other hand made goods. There are also some really good guides in this town that do treks into the desert if you're interested. If you do make a visit to Boumalne Dades, ask for Yedir Arjan, guaranteed the best guide ever! You can also do a bike ride through the Valley which I strongly recommend...the Atlas Mountains are incredible. Don't worry about booking acommodation here...there are a handful of hotels and the tours/bike rentals are always available and you can sort yourself out once you're there. You can get to Boumalne Dades from Marrakech by bus..there is an 8 hour long bus (you can't pre-book online) and it passes through Ouarzazate. Make sure you don't take a night bus because there are plenty of stops and the scenery is just too good to sleep through! Once you're in Boumalne Dades there are 2 or 3 bus companies that travel to all of the major cities...Fez is about a 12 hour ride and there's a night service you can take. One thing I do recommend with Moroccan buses is making sure you're not on a tight schedule....they tend to be an hour or so late. Hope this was helpful!! over 8 years ago

    Travel between Vancouver and San Diego

    I'd recommend going to Vancouver Island...Victoria is a such a beautiful city and then if you head west on the Pacific Rim Highway you'll hit Tofino which is great for surfing. On the way make sure you stop in Port Renfrew and stay at the Big Fish Lodge. It's a tiny little village but it's a great spot to base out of for some awesome hiking. over 8 years ago

    What is the best & most affordable way to get from Berlin to Prague?

    You can take a bus and it'll take you about 5 hours and cost ya about $50 US. The only thing is the bus station is a bit out of the ways so if you took a train it would cost a bit more but you'd be in the city centre. Try www.idos.cz. over 8 years ago

    Madrid to the coast

    How long do you have for this trip? I'd definitely recommend the drive from Valencia to Barcelona...it's quite a trek but it's along the coast and there are tons of little towns and villages along the way. over 8 years ago
