    Which is the best, easiest, cheapest or quickest Visa run options from Phuket?

    Cheers for that. And in case anyone else needs info. The company I used was called Phuket Business & Legal who did the trip in a 9 seat "VIP" air-conditioned minibus. It was actually not too bad. The trip cost 1500 Thb and included everything from water and a few snacks on the bus to a stop at a Thai roadside restaurant in Ranong, the $10 US at the border crossing and the boat across to Myanmar. It also had a DVD and TV on board. It took from 6am to about 6.30pm Don't expect to make too many friends on the trip though. My bus was like riding along on a day trip with Norman Bates, Gary Glitter and Fred West.... I'm sure some of them had family members locked up in their basements by the looks of them! about 10 years ago

    I have a weekend in San Francisco. What are the best sites to see?

    Absolutely everything that Anna said plus you have to take a ride on the cable cars! China town is pretty cool. Golden Gate is incredible. But pretty much everything down by Fishermans Wharf / Pier 39 as Anna said is very cool. about 10 years ago

    Where can I buy the best fish and chips?

    There are "Chippy's" everywhere in London & London is a VERY big place, so you might need to narrow down the criteria slightly. about 10 years ago

    I'll be in Thailand for 2 weeks in Dec. Bangkok for first week. What should I do for the next week? I need to get back to Bangkok by the end

    Also Koh Phi Phi for an the full on tourist experience. Krabi is also very cool but more laid back than Phuket. You can get a boat from Ao Nang to Phi Phi. I'm in Phuket now which has pretty much everything you could want in Thailand. It has remote inland areas and countryside along with amazing beaches and all the nightlife / tourist elements you could want. You can get away from it all if you stay away from Patong or go for the full on ladyboy bazaar that is Soi Bangla after dark. about 10 years ago

    What's the best way for Australian citizens to find visa information for living/working in the UK?

    globalvisa.com and workpermit.com As someone that used to deal with bringing in foreigners for various employers I found both of these very helpful. about 10 years ago

    Where to take a girl on a date?

    Trafford or Arndale Centre, give her your credit card and meet her in about 3 hours. You'll be married (but broke) within a week! ;) Seriously though there's so uch to do. A good date bar is the Bluu Bar in the Northern Quarter. It's very chilled with intimate spaces and a good Brasserie attached for food. There's a great Tapas place on Deans Gate. Although a word of advice from experience. If you go there on a date, make sure its not while Spain are playing in football match and if they are certainly don't abandon the girl in favour of sitting in the kitchen with the chefs watching the match. It doesnt go down well although you do get free chorizo.... Another good place is Cloud 23 on the 23rd floor of the Hilton Tower with great views of the city. If its a sunny day you could also go down to a place called Dukes 92 which is right next to the Canal and great for alfresco weekend relaxing about 10 years ago
