    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. 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. over 9 years ago

    I'm going to South America and wanted to know if it was possible to learn to surf down there. If so where is good?

    I know it's late for your trip but for the purposes of letting others with a similar question, look at WAVES for Development in northern Peru. They do trips that combine surfing school and a volunteering stints. A great organization and goo people. about 9 years ago

    What to expect in Taipei

    I used to live there many years ago, and at that time, taxis we very safe and a great way to get around. I can't imagine since then the service and safety has deteriorated. In fact, they have just passed a law where passengers must wear a seat belt in the back seat! Regarding yellow fever vaccine. I didn't see t on the CDC site, but have a look for yourself to make sure: http://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/destinations/taiwan.htm over 8 years ago

    Does anyone have any recommendations for good non-touristy bistro type restaurants in Paris in the Latin Quarter or near the Pantheon

    Its been ages since I have been there, but I always like to look at Patricia Wells cookbooks as she lists the places and cooks of bistros all over Pars that inspired the recipes. Travelandleisure.com and virtualtourist.com also have great listings. about 9 years ago

    Are there some good comedy clubs in downtown San Francisco?

    Cobbs and Punchline are probably the best known with a regular comedy line up on any given night. The Purple Onion also has comedy, but it's not all that thy do, so be sure to look up the listings. For large headliner stand up comics, check out FGate.com for the latest acts playing at the larger capacity theatres. almost 9 years ago

    What are the best non-touristy things to do?

    Where to begin....In SF proper, walking around the farmers market at the Ferry Building, hoof over from Fishermans Wharf along the waterfront over to the Marina and Fort Mason. You'll pass the Maritime Museum, brave swimming souls who take laps there, walk out along the pier, and over the small hill to the Marina and Crissy Field where locals play soccer, volleyball, go for a run. Yes, you'll pass touristy areas, but lost of locals amble along this way too. Golden Gate Park usually has something going on-the De Young has great exhibits and on the last Thursday (or is it first?you'll need to check) of the month they close late and often host vibrant special events where many cool and artsy locals throng; LOTS of fun. Streets close on the Sunday for bikers, rolleskaters and strollers, visit the buffalo pen and out to Ocean Beach and Sutro baths. Lots of locals make this an integral part of their weekend. Stop at the Beach Chalet brewery to catch some suds and sunset views. The bar at the lower level also has live music and is very local. The Haight/Ashbury always has free entertainment by way of watching the varied colours of humanity there. Very interesting place to lollygag over beers at Magnolia or tapas at Cha Cha Cha. My fave on a sunny warm days to hangout at The Ramp on China Basin where they have live salsa bands and dancing on the weekends. Jammed, party-mode and def not touristy! almost 9 years ago
