    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

    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

    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

    Trains from Frankfurt to Copenhagen?

    Hi Tyrone, Try Deutschbahn - As you are leaving from a city within the centre of Germany, it is probably the cheapest and easiest way. http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/dn?ld=96164&seqnr=1&ident=0y.013793164.1287039739&rt=1&rememberSortType=minDeparture&OK#focus The above is a search with an arbitrary date... Depending on when you want to go, you can get IC / ICE trains (the fast ones!) for about 90€ one way if you book far enough in advance.# Hope this helps! almost 9 years ago

    What food from Zurich is unmissable?

    CHEESE FONDUE. Seriously... You will likely feel sick afterwards, but it is soo worth if if cheese is your thing. Gruyère or Emmental cheeses are the best to sample as far as Fondue goes. They also do amazing chocolate fondue, with fresh fruits dipped in the melted Swiss chocolate. So good! Switzerland is generally a good place for both cheese and chocolate, but most people do not realise how good the quality of the wine is either - I strongly recommend some tastings if you can get yourself to some vineyards, depending on the time of your visit. almost 9 years ago

    Where can I taste Casu Marzu in Sardinia?

    Ahh... That stuff! I tried that when I was in Cagliari earlier this year... *very* strong flavoured, but really tasty. Good with wine! I was Couchsurfing when I was in Sardinia, and my host had some in her refrigerator and we had a lovely evening of wine and cheese - I am reasonably sure you can buy it from shops over there, else you could likely find cafes and bars that will serve it. almost 9 years ago

    Where can I can the biggest surf waves in Tasmania?

    Hi Bobby, Not much of a surfer myself, but I have quite a few friends back in Tasmania who are well and truly into it. Some of the best spots in Tasmania can be found along the West coast, which can be a pain if you are a tourist as these areas can be quite hard to reach without renting a car. Still, if you can get some like-minded people together, it can also be a recipe for an awesome road trip! http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Marrawah,+Tasmania,+Australia&sll=37.0625,-95.677068&sspn=56.06887,79.013672&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Marrawah+Tasmania,+Australia&z=11 The above is Marrawah, on the northern end of the West coast. Some of the best waves in the state can be found here, so I am told. http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=Clifton+Beach,+Tasmania,+Australia&sll=-40.920013,144.70802&sspn=0.423377,0.617294&ie=UTF8&hq=&hnear=Clifton+Beach+Tasmania,+Australia&z=14 Closer to civilization is Clifton Beach, about 30 minutes from Hobart. You may even be able to get a Metro bus out this far, check www.metrotas.com.au for more details. EDIT: Thanks for pointing out Shipsterns Niko, completely forgot! almost 9 years ago
