    Are flights to USA (from Australia) always expensive during July/August? Or can specials still be found?

    Also dont forget that there are some amazing student and youth fares to be had through STA travel if that applies to you. Although June/July is peak season to travel to the Northern Hemesphere, as it is there summer and most Aussies want to escape the cold, the trick is to get in early before they sell the cheaper seats! over 10 years ago

    As first time travelers to the Thailand and Fiji islands - where would be the nicest place to stay for myself and my wife ?

    It all depends what style of holiday you are hoping to have. If you are wanting to relax on beaches and stay in beautiful hotels there are some amazing island resorts in Fiji and Thailand. In Thailand I would recommend heading south of Bangkok to Koh Phi Phi. This is the island where they filmed the movie "The Beach" and it is gorgeous. In Fiji Mana Island Resort in the Yasawas is amazing. If you are more interested in seeing the nightlife and shopping head to Phuket in Thailand and Beachcomber Island in the Mamanucas, Fiji. over 10 years ago

    Where in SE Asia, is easy and safe to travel with young kids?

    I'm not sure about SE Asia, but have you considered Fiji? There are some great family friendly resorts both on the main island and on some of the outer islands. The staff are amazing and love entertaining the kids if they are being boistrous during meals. Cheap child care and kids clubs and you can choose to relax on the beach or go exploring, snorkeling, fishing, island walks, inter-island trips and heaps of other activities. I stayed on Plantation Island last time I was there and it was fantastic! I guess it all depands on the age of the kids and what you are looking to do on your holiday. over 10 years ago

    I have 2 nights 3 days spare coming up in Bali - do I book something now, or should I just wait until I get there?

    I would highly recomend booking at least your accommodation before you get there. As far as tours go, there are a lot of day tours available through various companies, however from my experience it can be difficult finding what you want when you get there. It all depends on your budget, and how flexible you are with what you see. Also if you are not so keen on the Kuta tourist vibe I can highly recommend staying in Ubud, the temples and monkey sanctuary seem a very long way from the beaches and bargaining of the main tourist hubs. There are some amazing local arts and crafts markets just south of Ubud in Sukawati. over 10 years ago

    what is the best way to exchange currency AUD to Fiji?

    You can get AUD, NZD and USD travelex cards that can be used at eftpos and ATM's, but most of the resorts in Fiji only accept cash. The bigger resorts may exchange money for you, but you should check with the individual hotel. Travelex at an international airport would be the best way to go. over 10 years ago
