    We have 4 full days (5 nights) what should we do ?

    Port Arthur i would suggest staying at Stewarts Bay Lodge. We just had our 8 year anninversary down there! I love it and we have stayed there 3 times now and plan to get married down there. It is where i grew up camping all my life and now they have a lodge there. Google Stewarts Bay Lodge. You can walk from there in to this historic site or drive. Hobart there are many options and depending on how much you want to spend. I would stay away from Salamanca area for accommodation because of the night life there. I have never stayed anywhere in the Hoabrt area before because of living there so that wont be much help but i would stay away from Salamanca just because of noise. The Quest Savoy Grand Chancellor Casino Zero Davey Just a few options not sure about price on them tho. Salamanca Markets are good. You can find so many places down there to have anice lunch as well after the markets. Enjoy your time in Tassie and remember the warm clothes almost 11 years ago

    I don't think that you are going to be able to do all of these. Cadburys and Cascade can be done on the same day Salamanca Market is only on a Saturday morning to mid afternoon you can do Richmond after Salamanca Market Wine Glass bay is about a 3 hour drive there form Hobart the give another few hours for the walk depending on how far you want to go. Russel Falls is about 1 hour and a bit from Hobart and can be cold so rug up if you go there Strahan is a long long long drive from Hobart and you would want to spend a day or more up there after the drive Cataract Gorge is very close to Launceston the drive from Hobart i would give 3 hours It all really depends on where you are staying either Hobart or Launceston. I would cut your list in half - Tassie is amazing and even tho it is small there are so many places to see. When my friends visited from Finland this is what we did in 3 days Day one: Salamanca Market, Richmond, Wineries on the way to Richmond, Mt Wellington and then a night out on the town in Hobart Day Two: Hung over we did Wine Glass Bay and didn’t get home till after 9pm so that was a full day stopping the whole way at lookouts Day Three: Cadburys and Cascade then we had a traditional Aussie meal then they flew home. Have fun choosing where to go and what to see! Tassie is a lot bigger than people expect. about 10 years ago

    I would strongly suggest the following Wineglass Bay walk and stay at Freycinet Lodge. You would not regret going there at all. If you are travelling from Hobart then i would go all the way up the east coast on the way to Freycinet and check out all the lovely spots to stop off at and take in the view. I would also suggest going up Mt Wellington. We had some friends from Finland over and they through the view of Hobart from Mt Wellington was by far the best Also Salamanca Market is a must if you are staying in Hobart Richmond for the heritage, there are lots of wineries along the way to Richmond and also a nice old fashioned pub. Port Arthur Historic Site is also a must see in Tasmania Cruise on the Peppermint Bay Boat or a Cadbury's Tour Cascade Brewery is a good one as well. There are just a few ideas i guess to work from. Just letting you know all are these are from travel from the Hobart area. about 10 years ago

    What are some good budget hotel/guest house options in the Kuta/Legian area of Bali

    We stayed at the Oasis in Kuta and i would NOT recommended staying there. The loo leaked, mozzies all through the room, the shutter doors didn't close and it just got worse and worse. I would stay away from that hotel. Depending on your age i have heard that the Bounty is a great place for young people. A firend from work is staying there in September and it is around $30.40 per night. about 10 years ago

    Do I need to get any injections before I travel to Bali ?

    We needed to have hep A and typhoid injections. It is recommended. Also if you are going to play with the monkeys i would recommend having rabies shot! Best to check with your travel doctor and they will advise the best course of action to take injection wise about 10 years ago

    is big bus tour ok

    The big red bus tours are excellent. You can hop on and off the bus as you please. So if you find somewhere where you want to spend a little more time just hop off and get on the next one. Fastastic way to see the city and all the sites. about 10 years ago

    Where can I find good shopping in Phuket? In particular - places that sell imitation handbags?

    Yeah for sure just ask the shop owners if they have any better bags. They keep the good one locked away and are much better quality than the plastic ones they have on the shop front. Don't be afraid the talk them down in price - if they really want the sale they will come to a final deal with you. OK i would suggest to catch a Tuk Tuk in to Phuket and be asked to be dropped off at McDonalds across from the beach. If they drop you off there then walk down the road and there are all these little streets - walk around them all. Most of them will either have clothes, shoes, handbags and wood things. Check them all out then i would suggest going back to the ones that you think had better stuff in them and ask them if they have handbags out the back. You will find some good outside pubs as well so if it is hot a good excuse while you are shopping to grab a cold beer! You will find most shops sell handbags. Night shopping is so much fun as well in Phuket - you will find that there are more people around shopping of a night time. The Tuk Tuk's have fluro lights in them it is amazing! Just ask anything else and i will see if i can help you! xx about 10 years ago
