    How do you say "I don't need a taxi" in Hindi?

    Or just say no thanks and shake your head. They will understand you anywhere in the world with that,except maybe for Bulgaria where a head shake means yes. Taxis in major centers will speak a little English. about 8 years ago

    How much money (US $) should I bring if I am going to London for 2 weeks and I'm not a big spender. (Mainly food and a little souvenir)

    We are in London right now and thankfully staying with family. Our experience has been that prices are the same numeric value as North America, but since £1=$1.50 or so, the £1 sandwich is more expernsive. about 8 years ago

    How to go to Europe by Eurail pass if i am a backpacker?

    Eurail passes are designed for travel within Europe, not to Europe. Depending on where you're coming from, you will likely want to fly to Europe first and then use the Eurail. Depending on how long you are traveling and which countries you are going to, a Eurail pass might not be the best investment for you. We just did two months in Eastern EUrope and only used a train three or four times. They often require advance bookings and are more expensive. Buses run frequently and are often cheaper. about 8 years ago

    6 days in Ireland, solo female traveler. Good idea? Interested in seeing some countryside, and eating/drinking local. Flying into Dublin.

    We just spent a few nights there. Spent the last night at Generator Hostel and highly recommend it. Good value for money. Booked on hostelbookers.com and got a free Guinness with booking. Also, do the free walking tour, they pick up from Generator at 10:30 and will give you good overview for what you want to see more of. Plus they run a pub crawl each night. We are in countryside right now. Rented a car, not many hostels here but it is beautiful. Did the Rock of Cashel today and it was amazing. about 8 years ago

    I have a week in Vancouver, what should i do?

    Many things to keep you busy with, depending on how much time you want to take to see things and how mobile you are. A car can get you to nice places out of the city, but isn't necessary - if you have a car, taking the ferry to Victoria is nice....you can do it without a car but need to spend more time in transit getting to the ferry. The downtown core of Victoria has a culture all on its own - in North Vancouver, there are two suspension bridges. Capilano is costly and I think not worth it, but Lynn Valley is free and about the same quality as Capilano - also in North Van is Grouse mountain. If you're up for a challenge you can hike up, called the Grouse grind. Can take 45-90 minutes depending on your pace. At the top is a nice view and a park area you can spend some time in, then take the gondola down. You can also take the gondola up. I recommend going up just before sunset and coming down after sunset, then you see a great view of the city in the day and night - Stanley Park is a good place to hang out for a day...pack a lunch and have a picnic if you want to save money. You can rent bikes or roller blades to go around the perimeter road, which is 13km or walk it....there's also the aquarium. On weekends you might see a cricket match going on and more - Granville island is a neat place to hang out - lots of other things too...just depends on what you're interested in about 8 years ago

    What are the must-see sights in Budapest? I will be there in August for a day trip.

    We more prefer the free activities where possible. There is a free walking tour (tip encouraged) that starts at 10:30amd or 2:30pm that gets you to all the major sites and some history too. If you do the morning tour, they also have a free tour at 3:30. Depending on the day, it will be either the Communist Tour or Jewish tour. We've done several walking tours in Eastern Europe and found this group to be the best organized. After the walking tour, the House of Terror is an eye opening, educational museum too. If you're there in the evening, when it's a little cooler, a traditional bath house is a great experience. We went to Lukas, which is only 1700 HUF after 6:30pm about 8 years ago

    Is it safe, as a tourist, to show objects like cameras, ipads, etc while walking on the streets or in restaurants ou museums?

    Istanbul is safe. We were there for 6 days this spring. Istanbul is relatively safe, but as with any town in the world, even your home town, you need to be smart about where you pull out your gadgets. We have only carried our iPad on our travels and use it for the map or guidebook at times. For the most part we keep it in our backpack and if an area looks sketchy, we won't pull it out, even if we need to at times. Whether it's Istanbul or anywhere else, just have to be smart about it. about 8 years ago
