    Looking for reasonable priced accommodation in Seoul for 2 nights. approx one subway stop from city

    I very recently stayed in the Hill House hotel, which is on the edge of the main city area, right by a subway stop and a short walk from the Namdaemun market. The rooms were clean, the staff friendly and there were plenty of restaurants within a reasonable walking distance. about 9 years ago

    Any recs for transfer company frm Heathrow to Westminster

    The cheapest way is to take the bus/coach, but for a small amount more the Heathrow Connect (not Heathrow Express) train is much faster. The coach/trains will drop you in Paddington. From there it's a short cab ride to Westminster, a slow bus ride or if you change your mind and take the tube the Circle or District lines go straight to Westminster. about 9 years ago

    how to exchange foreign currency in venezuela? Shall i use atm?

    The safe and legal way is to use an ATM. Alternatively you can ask just about anyone at the airport or hotel where you can exchange some money and they'll direct you away from the official exchange to a friend of theirs. You can haggle to a certain extent but in Dec 2009 we were offered 2-3 times the official exchange rate. almost 9 years ago

    How will I do with minimal french skills in Nice?

    Nice is very popular with tourists, so many vendors will speak English and/or Italian and most important signs and directions will have translations. A few cafes in the old town will have an English menu if you ask for it (Avez-vous une carte en anglais?) Get a reminder of a few key phrases at http://www.bbc.co.uk/languages/french/quickfix/ and taking a notepad is potentially helpful for numbers and improptu Pictionary. Just do your best to start the conversation in French and they'll generally help out. Starting in English will get the same sort of reception you might expect walking into a shop in Australia or the UK and saying 'Bonjour, comment ca va?' almost 9 years ago

    What is the best way to get from Bamako to Djenne?

    There's a mopti bus via Segou (1-2hr stop) which will get you there in about half a day if it doesn't break down. It's best to go early in the day, so when you get to the Djenne Junction there will still be vehicles waiting to take you into town. If you're short on time: Hire a 4x4 for between 45000 and 60000 FCFA including driver almost 9 years ago
