    What's the weather like in Dunedin in May?

    Change of season is unpredictable in NZ in general. Nights getting cold, possible bluebird skies but also grey and miserable every so often. over 7 years ago

    What is the best public transportation option from the Shanghai Pudong Airport to the Huangpu district (Yun's Paradise Hotel)

    Take the Maglev to Line 2, or just jump straight onto Line 2 Metro, the Station is marked well on the 2nd floor of arrival terminal in Shanghai Airport. Follow arrows and get a ticket for either Maglev or Line 2. At East Nanjing station you should transfer to Line 10. (line 2 is green, line 10 is light purple) This station is usually really busy, but arrows are clear. Your stop should be YuYuan Gardens or Laoximen, and the hotel is a short walk from either stop. Google Maps shows this all very clearly. Otherwise a taxi from the airport (line up to take the taxi outside arrivals terminal) will be around 200RMB. over 7 years ago

    What is the best way to get from China to Laos or Chiangmai Mai?

    I went from Kunming, can catch a bus through Xishuangbana to Megla (China), there, buy a ticket to Luang Namtha (Laos), long tiring trip but awesome. In Luangnamtha you can nearby do the gibbon experience and there great trekking. From there we went to Houei Xai where you can go over the Mekong to Thailand , really near Chiang Rai and from there to Chiang Mai (Chiang Rai is more cool I rekons) heh but we opted to go down the Mekong for 2 days ( also well worth it.) over 7 years ago

    Does China cater to budget backpackers?

    Food is really cheap and so is hostel accommodation. Bus is cheaper than train sometimes, trains you have to book, but there are pricing options (seat/1st class seat+bed/1st class bed). In most tourist areas it isnt too hard to book trains with the help of hostel staff, and people are generally friendly (even if they dont seem so in the more rural areas) I was able to get by on $25 per day traveling small distances and eating and sleeping cheap. over 8 years ago

    I'm looking to head to Thailand for 3 weeks, end of august through to sept. What's the best things to do.

    North East is my pick for sure! Chiang Rai, I got truly stuck there for weeks, lax small place, easy to blend with locals at the Peace house (bar), awesome people and cool as things to do nearby : Black House blew my mind, and White temple is very cool too! Pai is really rated highly by many, its pretty sweet if you like riverside and bungalow living. The islands can be reeeeally touristy, starbucks etc so very tailored and expensive in comparison, but a fun party with other tourists if youre into that! over 8 years ago

    2 weeks in China - is there anything i've missed?

    I highly recommend you stay in the south for this trip, go back for Shanghai/Beijing and other great places another trip. Spend more time in Sichuan province- far north and far west (very tibetan). Dont miss Yunnan province (my favourite province in all China) Dali, LiJiang and ShangriLa - beautiful side of ancient China, and great attractions (tiger leaping gorge). Because China is SO big I think it is a good idea to reduce the distance you travel so you can see more! over 8 years ago

    how much would it cost to backpack in cambodia for one month?

    I was in Cambodia for only 2 weeks, we stayed in dorms, the cheapest we could find, and went to some tourist sites, like in Siem Reap; Angkor Wat. I budget around $20 US per day spending, and around $6 US for each night sleep, this is plenty for food and bed. For travel within the country, usually between each place you can find out prior to going roughly the cost, for example, from Phnom Pen to Siem Reap cost me about $10US I think. Entrance to tourist attractions is a bit more (Angor Wat=around $60US for 3days+tuktuk/tour guide) I would say you will be find with under 1500US but that is budget travel :) over 8 years ago
