    What are some good options for water filters/purifiers for travel?

    I saw a video on TED.com about the Lifesaver bottle http://www.lifesaversystems.com/ It basically makes rancid water drinkable, bacteria and virus free. The filter inside is good for 4000L 150USD for the 4000L version over 6 years ago

    where i can sleep in bolzano

    sorry I didn't see this until today. There is always the Youth Hostel http://bozen.jugendherberge.it/cs.asp?st=1&sp=en Or there are plenty of hotels in walking distance too but the youth hostel is your cheapest option. over 6 years ago

    Water purification in Nepal

    There is also the option of these: http://www.lifesaverbottleaus.com/ 15nm filter bottles that filter out all bacteria and viruses. Bit expensive but you could also take 4 replacement filters and give the bottle away to a school or something there :) Ordering from the UK might also be an option because the cost in Aus is about $100 above the converted amount. over 6 years ago

    What would be another alternative for accommodation, that may be cheap and more safe than backpackers in Sao Paolo & Rio de Janeiro?

    Well you can rent apartments but I wouldn't consider this much of a safer option. Then there is always hotels but they are usually much more expensive and where the rich tourists go is where the darker side of Rio will go too. Backpackers are actually quite safe, if you see the place I recommended on the question below you will be in an enclosed and guarded area that you feel very secure in. http://travellr.com/questions/brazil/27/where-is-the-best-place-to-stay-in-rio-de-janeiro over 6 years ago

    How can I get from Kuala Lumpur to Malacca?

    Lonely Planet I read wasn't relevant because renovations are going on at the main bus station. Currently you need to go to the LRT (metro) station Bukit Jalil on the Sri Penaling line and then catch a bus to Melaka from the bus station about 100m from the metro stop. Should be looking at $14RM one way per person. My advice would be to go directly to the tent with the counters and avoid the "worms" (translation of the local term for the hawkers selling tickets). Also ask how many stops the bus does. Otherwise a 2 hour trip can turn into a 4 hour one. Transnational is one of the companies that have buses leaving every 30 mins (this is what they say but delays happen frequently and hour gaps are more likely) almost 7 years ago
