    Are we required to bring vaccination records in India?

    Depends where you are coming from. Certain countries in Africa require you to be vaccinated to enter that country and other countries, upon seeing you have visited that country, might ask to see your vaccination records. India didn't require it when we were there in the Spring, but that was before we had gone to Africa. After visiting Tanzania, we were only asked to show our vaccination records once in the next 12 countries that we had visited. about 8 years ago

    Canadian seeking visa information for SE Asia

    Not sure about Bali and Cambodia but Thailand and Laos have a visa on arrival system without an application. Vietnam requires a previous application done online and then emailed to you. I believe we used http://www.hotels-in-vietnam.com/ and paid $14 online, had to print out a form they sent us and then paid $25 USD cash in Vietnam. Laos charged $42 USD for Canadians. Make sure to cross via a major crossing point. Thailand was no charge but if you cross by land you only get 15 days, 30 days if you fly. Visahq.ca is a good place to get visa information. They can help with applications to in some cases about 8 years ago

    Hubby &I going to Istanbul in Nov. Q: safest way to get to the Hilton Hotel from the airport? interesting & educational tours to book?

    You could spend about €25 on a cab but the transit system is so convenient and easy in Istanbul. Just get an Istanbulkaart from the airport station and load it up with credit. They can help you with what station to go to. A much smoother ride than dealing with Istanbul traffic about 8 years ago

    What can we do in Jaipur, India for a day? Any recommendations on restaurants?

    We were there for four days in March. I can recommend a really good rickshaw driver if you wish. He was honest and reliable. There is the Amber Fort outside the city that is fairly impressive and you will see the old walls as well. You can also hike up to the fort just behind the city and see the city at sunset, which is cool. They call it the Pink City but we didn't really see much pink. If you're a science person, there is the Jantar Mantar which has some old sundials and things from hundreds of years ago that still work, including a 27 meter tall sundial. There is also the royal family residence if you care to do that, but it wasn't for us. Jaipur is also famous for their lassis, so be sure to have some while you're there. The Lassi Walla shop is the original and can be found in the map in the Lonely Planet guide book. Contact me through our site if you have more questions. about 8 years ago

    What are some top things to do, that maybe locals do more of in Seattle, WA. Just moved here and feel like a tourist.

    Have you gone down to Pike Place market? It's popular among tourists but many locals there too. We are from Vancouver but have visited Seattle often. Walking around downtown can help you soak things in. There is also a new free walking tour of Seattle where you just tip the guide. Google it and it will help you with some history. I've also done the boat cruise around Lake Union and Lake Washington which gives you a little Seattle history and takes you by the Sleepless in Seattle house and Bill Gates' place. Maybe not the answer you were looking for but hope it helps. Otherwise, check out a local sports team in action, thousands of locals there :) about 8 years ago

    Travel Tips for Las Vegas

    Depending on how long you're going and how much you want to spend, renting a car and going to the Hoover Dam is cool and only about an hour from the strip. The Grand Canyon is about 4-5 hours away. about 8 years ago

    Europe backpacking budget

    Depends where in Europe you are going. Eastern Europe is very cheap, Bulgaria, Romania,Serbia, Turkey and the Baltic nations are the cheapest, you can probably do $50 a day. As you go further north and west, it gets much pricier. about 8 years ago
