    What's a Sydney 'paddington style' market in Melbourne?

    I've never actually been to Padding Markets in Sydney, so take this with a grain of salt, but probably the biggest/most-varied market in Melb is the Queen Victoria Market (or just "Vic Market"): http://www.qvm.com.au/ It's sort of split between food and "other stuff" - The fresh food (ie: meat, vegies, fish) are fantastic, but the actual food stalls generally leave a little bit to be desired (in my opinion). The other alternative is South Melbourne market (http://www.southmelbournemarket.com.au/) which is not quite as big, but also quite good. They both vary a bit depending on season (more fresh food in summer + night market, less in winter) but always worth checking out. Be sure to check the sites for opening times as they're not open every day. over 10 years ago

    Where can I find great pancakes?

    The Ricotta Hotcakes at Replete Providore (Hawthorne) one Breakfast Dish of the Year a while back in Cheap Eats. http://thebreakfastblog.blogspot.com/2005/06/ricotta-hotcakes.html Probably not a bad starting point! almost 11 years ago

    Where's a beautiful, quiet place to go in spain in July that is affordable and isn't overrun with tourists (ideally coastal)?

    Thanks so much for all your responses, that's definitely giving me some ideas/inspiration. That was my first post to travellr, and I've gotta say, I'm pretty impressed :) almost 11 years ago

    I'm looking for a good place to ride out the economic crisis. Is Thailand a good place?

    Hah, what an excellent idea! As another option, Vietnam is a pretty good cheap second alternative to (most of) Thailand, or possibly a move-to option if you run out of visa. Generally speaking, I found things to be almost half the price of Thailand for the equiv in Vietnam - ie: Double 3-4 star hotel rooms for d wanna check that out before starting any serious plans :) almost 11 years ago

    Best things to see in Vietnam

    Hoi An is gorgeous (if rather touristy these days) - Highly recommend going there. I've heard great things about Sapa + Ha Long Bay (though haven't been there myself). The war museums in Hanoi + Saigon are both fantastic (if confronting) if you're in to that sort of thing. Nha Trang is supposed to be the best beach, but ultra touristy - To be honest, Vietnam has better things to offer than beaches, so I wouldn't put it too high on the list. If you're in to food, Vietnam is an absolute gold mine - the French/asian fusion with all-fresh ingredients means it's just absolutely stunning. If you go to Hoi An, make sure you eat at Hai Scout cafe and Mango Rooms. Have fun! almost 11 years ago
