    What are the things to see along the St Lawerence River?

    Because it is a very large river that runs through Quebec and Montreal before dumping into Lake Ontario, it will depend where you may be specifically referring to and type of activities you like. Starting from the east, I recall a fab trip (in winter) to Petit Saguenay and Tadoussac. Nearby but further west, there's the Charlevoix area (national parks and protected biosphere) where you can kayak, hike, camp etc. IN winter there's dramatic skiing on Le Massif which has ski runs that essentially stop at the river. Heading further west is lovely Quebec city with plenty to do in both the city and along the river. Montreal also offers a lot of river activity....keep heading west and you'll wend through the 1,000 Island region (yes,like the salad dressing!) with lots of lovely towns dotting the river and eventually end up in Lake Ontario and the Toronto region. almost 9 years ago

Azuca Latin Bistro (open 24 hours!) Rincon La Ronda Mi Viejo Arrabal-steak house (Address: Juan León Mera 678 y Foch) Other good reviews were given to: Cafe Moasaico, Pims. Hidden Garden, Boca del Lobo (nightclub), and La Vaca Negra. almost 9 years ago

    What is good cold weather/snow clothing for New York?

    I lived in New York for a couple of years, so I have experienced all the weather conditions it has to throw at you. I am assuming you mean New York City as opposed to colder climes of Upstate NY. Yes, agree that it's about layering (bring the hat, gloves, scarves) but it is also a city not a snow-ladened ski village, and rarely do the temperatures reach sustained sub-zero levels. So if you want to look like a local, do bring jeans, sweaters, shirts, skirts/tights whatever you would wear in a city. The hotels/restaurants/pubs/subways and clubs are all heated to the gills, such that I often found myself stripping down to a T-shirt or blouse. The biggest winter asset for a female is a longer coat that keeps your legs warm while you traipse the streets (always ducking in somewhere for a coffee/bite) If you forgot something, just head to Century 21 department store on Cortland Street & Broadway (next to ground zero in the Wall Street area) and buy what you need. It's a shoppers discount paradise. about 9 years ago

    2000 dallars in Hong Kong money

    By the way, I always just use my ATM card to get local money, if the PIN is compatible ( 5-digits PINS usually are). Fees are usually minimal compared to Forex booths/banks and no waiting in queues and no fear of carrying wods of home currency unless traveling to more remote places where ATMs may be a challenge. about 9 years ago

    What are the best destinations in Venezuela?

    I loved the islands of Los Roques. Get there by small charter planes from the domestic airport. At the time I went, all flights left in the morning and took passengers who just turned up as much as by pre-bookings. They are pat of a protected park and if perfect if you are looking for a serene and gorgeous get away. Once there, you can take smaller little boats that drop you off at isolated beaches and then come back to pick you up when you want. The main island does have a lively pulse in the evenings with no shortage of bars and restaurants. Bliss. about 9 years ago

    Any recommendations for travelling in Iran?

    The classic places are: Esfehan, Shiraz, Tehran and Persepolis. • Many Tehrani’s walk from the north part of city seeking respite from the oppressive city heat and pollution. Take the path up the mountain on the Darakeh Path which runs along stone paths, outskirts into the mountain along running water which is snow melt from the Alborz mountains. It also keeps the area cool. • Another spot outside of Tehran to walk to is Darband where tea stops and juice bars line the route. Sarband is beyond Darband and where many restaurants are a popular destination at night for Tehrani’s, all tucked into the mountain’s nooks and crannies with the snow melt running through the town. There’s a hotel here too. • The village of Kanovan (near Azerbaijan) is unique because the entire village is in cave dwellings. Some of the caves are hotels! • Masoleh is n the North of Iran. Mountainous village nestled/crammed on the mountain. About 300km from Tehran. • Abyaneh Kashan. About 3 hours south of Tehran. Tucked in the foothills, old native red mud buildings. The city of Kashan was major trading town about 800 years ago and the merchants’ mansions are stunning. There would be lots of buses from Tehran to here…approx 3 hours. From Kashan you can head to Esfehan about 400 km further on, reached by bus or train. • The north in the Caspian is lush and green. Lots of rice fields • Do a search on Google Earth and click on the images to get a better sense of these places. • Shiraz is lovely. Birthplace and home of Hafaz and Saadi, very revered and beloved poets oft recited by Iranians today. The UN General Assembly in New York even sports a Saadi quote running along the top of the room. • There are Iranian tours that go to some of these places, but trick is finding them in Tehran. Be prepared to pay “western’ rates. I can get a name or two. There are two that do welcome westerners and market in the west: Irandiscoverytours.com is one I came across, but can’t vouch for their services or value. over 9 years ago
