    For a tourist visa, do you still require an invitation letter?

    I am Australian and have never needed an invitation letter and I've visited China on 3 separate occasions between 2007-2012. What is your husband's nationality? almost 7 years ago

    what kid of food is there in South Korea. And how much do they cost

    Korean food! Haha! In Seoul, there is everything. American chains, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Vietnamese, vegetarian, vegan, burgers, pizza, Indian, and more. You can go budget or five star and everything in between! A basic bibimbap (rice with meat and veg in a bowl) will set you back 8,000-15,000 Won depending on where you go. That is approximately US$8-15. Probably cheaper the further you get from Itaewon and other popular areas. Most places will also give you unlimited kimchi, fermented vegetables in an assortment of flavours! Yum, you will be stuffed every time you eat! The street food is also cheap and tasty! You can expect to pay around 5,000 Won for snacks. Enjoy! almost 7 years ago

    Cambodia with teenagers for 3 weeks

    Also, yes I recommend PP, for a capital city, it's small so only 2-3 days is needed. But culturally interesting and of course, as I mentioned, the animal refuge centre! :) almost 7 years ago

    Cambodia with teenagers for 3 weeks

    It will be useful to have small bills, US$1, $5, $10, and $20. Because most vendors will give you change in the Cambodian currency, Riel and as this currency has low exchange rates, you do not want to accumulate this throughout your trip. Therefore, better to have exact or close to exact change at all times. ATMs are readily available in the populated areas. Hotels also except both cash and cards. Hostels mostly accept cash. I do not recommend carrying around large amounts of cash but up to around $50 in small notes on the body should be plenty for the day's activities, like bike hire, tuk tuk, and food. For my previous 3 week trip, I got around $500-800 in small change and used a hotel safe to keep what I was not using. I, then withdrew cash in larger bills as I needed it for accommodation or tours - or used my card. I am not saying this is the best way but that's what I did. almost 7 years ago

    Dengue fever in Thailand

    It is a tropical country, mosquitos are always a threat but if you're staying in populated areas such as Phuket, the risk is lowered unless you will do a lot of trekking and hiking in forests and jungles. It may be useful for you to know that treatment for Dengue is uncomplicated and simple in first world countries. First signs of dengue fever is dehydration and may be accompanied by one or more of the following: tachycardia; hypotension; an unusual rash; decrease urine output; and cool skin despite the weather. It is important to stay hydrated in a tropical country especially if you are not from one - it may be hard for you to tell. By the time you feel thirsty with a dry mouth, you are already dehydrated. People who are susceptible are those who are malnourished and who are otherwise immunosuppressed. The only way to avoid it is to not be bitten. So, do as you normally would, use insect repellent, mosquito coils while you sleep and wear long sleeves and pants where you can. Eat well, sleep well and enjoy your holiday! about 7 years ago
