    is traveling to Australia worth the long flight?

    To be honest the long flight isn't as bad as you imagine. You get tired and stressed, but really, if everything works out, it is just like a long train trip. I had my parents in law who had never left Europe come out to Australia for Christmas and they struggled with the flight but they loved Tasmania. If you are from Europe and can get a direct flight from a city close by to most Asian capitals, Qatar or Dubai, you are looking at 1 stopover. My advice would be to stop for a couple of days and check out a non-western country. Then you would normally continue to Sydney or Melbourne. If you are flying from a North or South American country you can get direct or stopovers very close to Australia (e.g. New Zealand) depending from where you are flying. over 8 years ago

    What's the best way to carry money in Myanmar?

    If you are not a fan of money belts then try putting your money in a soft sun glasses case/bag tied onto the top of your pants and then dropping it down your pants. This trick saved me a lot of money when being basically robbed in South America, they didn't get our cards or our cash. almost 9 years ago

    What are some interesting places around Berlin which are accessible by public transport?

    Frankfurt-an-der-Oder is a good one. Head 1hr East on a train and it is full of beautiful old buildings and nice riverside places. almost 9 years ago

    How good is the public transport in Berlin?

    It rocks my socks. S-Bahn (above ground metro), U-Bahn (underground) and buses are all fantastic. Not sure if they are 24-hr all year round but in the summer they are and they are all quite frequent. almost 9 years ago

    Calls between USA and Thailand.

    Yeah like John said, if you bring a phone from the States the most important thing is that it is compatible with the type of mobile network in Thailand. http://www.chinavasion.com/gsm_explained.html#gsm-map The phone will also have to be "unlocked", which means that you can use it on other phone networks (more than just T-Mobile, AT&T etc) almost 9 years ago
