    Can i get my visa to thailand at any land border. Im Australian?

    http://www.smartraveller.gov.au/zw-cgi/view/advice/thailand Australian tourists travelling to Thailand through one of the international airports on an Australian passport may currently enter Thailand for up to 30 days without obtaining a visa in advance. This is referred to as a “visa exemption”. Australian tourists travelling overland into Thailand through a border crossing may enter Thailand for up to 15 days without obtaining a visa in advance. A visa is required for longer stays or for travellers intending to work or to travel for other than tourism purposes in Thailand. Thai authorities require all travellers to have at least six months validity remaining on their passports. You may be refused entry to Thailand, or may not be permitted to board your Thailand-bound flight, if your passport has less than six months validity. Long story short - When it comes to Thailand (or any Southeast Asian country for that matter), make sure you play by their entry / exit rules. Matters can get *very* nasty otherwise. over 9 years ago

    Travelling to Algeciras

    It all depends on what you are looking for - Seville is beautiful, there is a lot to see and do there - but to me, its just another big city. If you want sun and sand, and relief from the heat, then the coast is probably your best bet. Valencia may be worth a look. Questions to help your decision: How do you plan to get around? Do you have a rail-pass? If you do, I'd say overnight trains are your best bet - You'll save money (as you can sleep on the train) and you'll likely see more. If no rail-pass, check Ryanair out - Cheap, and not quite as terrible as people claim. over 9 years ago

    Do you have to take a tour of Kakadu National Park, Australia or can you rent a car and do it independently?

    There are a few places you can go in Kakadu without a 4WD, but as Simon says (lol), a 4WD is the best option. When renting one, be sure to go over it with a fine-tooth comb for any damage (companies usually ask you to do this prior to taking the vehicle) and take note of it either on the supplied form or in a notebook, and get somebody from the company to sight and sign it before you leave. Also make sure to check oil, water and the spare tyre. It may seem like stuff that the company should take care of, but not all are as responsible as you might think; the last thing you want to do is break down in the middle of nowhere!) Places like Britz, Hertz and Avis all have 4WDs for hire; shop around for the best deal. over 9 years ago

    Good value restaurants in Hobart CBD

    I agree with the most of the above - Especially steering clear of Da Angelo ;) Another one slightly out of the way is Flathead in South Hobart (Cascade Rd)... As the name suggests, they deal predominantly with seafood. Have been there several times and both the service and food have been fantastic. almost 10 years ago
