    • Mountain passes closed in winter

      Republic of Montenegro 8 hours ago

      Can someone tell me which roads/mountain passes in Montenegro are closed in winter due to snow? And which ones are usually kept snow free. I'm talking in particular about Tresnjevik (road between Matesevo and Andrijevica), the road between Kolasin-Savnik and the smaller (eastern) connection between Podgorica and Matesevo (not the Moraca canyon road).

      Thanks in advance!

    • Vivaldi ocean world

      Hongch'on Nov 28, 2015 at 8:16 PM

      Hi there, i'm planning on going to Vivaldi Ocean World in Hongcheon, South Korea and going in December (during Winter). I'm going to be going with 3 boys (i am a girl myself) and i know the indoor area will be the only area opened, i heard there are a few gender separated areas which are the sauna (jimjilbang) and one hot pool area. But i want to know if there are other hot pool areas to enjoy and have fun with my fellow friends as it would be pointless and not fun just being by myself the whole time..
      Thanks, your replies would be highly appreciated as i've tried to google this part but not much help :(

      JFK to Boston by bus - first time and with family

      Hi VTers

      We would arrive at JFK in the morning (8 am, Terminal 4) and plan to travel to Boston the same day by bus. We are 2 adults and 2 small kids with luggage. We have been to some countries together but this will be our first time to the US – 2+ weeks vacations starting from the 2nd week of December.

      From some Internet search, it seems that first we have to make it to Manhattan from JFK to catch the bus to New England – although I’d have preferred bypassing NYC which does not seem possible (?).

      Please suggest how to do that as a first timer. Which ticket we should buy, how, and where? We would like to use public transport but may use the taxi if that is necessary. Just to mention, we plan to come back to NYC later.

      For NYC-Boston, we intend to take the late afternoon (3-4 pm) bus connection so that we are not rushed. In the best case scenario it looks like that we could reach NYC around afternoon, and will have a few hours to roam/relax around. Would that be a good strategy? Can we leave our luggage at the bus station safely for a few hours (e.g. Megabus)?

      We contemplated about staying one night in NYC before moving ahead to Boston but decided otherwise due to reasons.

    • Riad collection from airport, rip off?

      Marrakesh 21 hours ago

      Hi fellow travellers
      Just a quick question. I've contacted the riad I've booked asking how much to collect us from the airport. They want €30 (€20 for couple plus €5 per additional, 2 adults and 2 kids). Our flight arrives at 3pm, first week February. From what I've read this seems expensive but I don't want to offend the riad owner before we get there!

      Any thoughts?

      Many thanks

    • Last Night At Ther Proms 2016 Sept

      United Kingdom 22 hours ago

      What are the chances that we get tickets ( 2) to The LN at The Proms , Prince Albert Hall.
      A return trip to the UK has moved up into the top ten destinations.
      We are only really interested in hearing three songs, "Jerusalem", "I Vow to You My Country", and "Rule Brittannia " with Sarah Connelly, providing the live entertainment.
      External venues look impressive but vacating 200,000 people from such a venue is not that appealing.
      The next option is Northern Spain.

    • Matira Beach & Airport Transportation

      Bora-Bora Yesterday

      I'm coming on a cruise ship in late January; thinking of taking a cab to and from Matira Beach from Vaitape. Could someone tell me about how much this would be, and if cabs are readily available at any particular place at either location? Also, do you tip? Are there any other possible ways of getting there and back? Since we're going to be on cruise ship, I assume any available Le Truck options will be limited. Will there be any minbuses for a shared ride? Also, is it possible to take a minibus or other mode of transportation other than cab to the airport and back, just as a scenic ride?

      Where to stay

      Belize Yesterday

      My wife and I are retired and are proposing to visit Belize in January 2016 for about a month to determine if it is the place for us for future UK winter holiday escapes.
      Firstly is January a good month to visit, should we stay a week in four different locations for instance or stay in one place and rent a car to visit other places and can anyone recommend accommodation.
      What should we know about Belize. We are seasoned travelers, so enjoy visiting new countries.
      Thanks in advance

      connection times

      South America Yesterday

      I'm sure this has been asked a few times, but anyway...

      I want to book flights from Ushuaia, Argentina to Marrakech, Morocco which will involve at least three flights or more and it seems far cheaper to book independantly flight-by-flight than the entire route through one agent. Of course, this means if I miss a flight it will be no one's fault but mine. How much time would you consider as a safe buffer between flights to allow for possible delays etc if it were you? I know there's no right or wrong answer to this, but an opinion would be very helpful

      Many thanks

    • Advices about our itiniary

      Germany Yesterday

      Hi , My family of four (2 adults, 2 kids 4 and 8 yearls old) are going to Germany next summer (22-25 days between july 11 and august 20). I need advice on that itiniary (we are very open to any change since nothing is booked yet).

      Our plan is to go to 4-5 base place and stay ther for 4-5 nights and them do daytrip from thioose place. We intend to do it all by train but if most of you tells us that the car is a better way to go we can rent one (for the whole trip or part of it) .

      Arrival in Luxembourg (stay all day and one night because of jet lag ! We choose that place instead of Munich, Frankfurt or Berlin because it would cost something like 300$ less by person)
      Luxembourg- Boppard (Cochem ? Koblenz ?)4-5 nights
      Boppard- Berlin 4-5 nights
      Berlin Dresden 2 nights
      Dresden-Nuremberg 3-4 nights Nuremberg (or a small town not too far from Nuremberg)
      Nuremberg-Munich 4-5 nights Munich (Maybe Prien since we want to do a daytrip to Salzburg)
      Munich Luxembourg (the worst part I guess) 1 night Luxembourg and back home !

      1) Should we do it another way (Munich first, Nuremberg, Berlin and Moselle valley last ? )
      2) Is it too rushed ?
      3) any suggestions for our bases that take in account that we need moments for adults (Architecture, history and wine !) and for kids (zoo, park) ?

      Thanks a lot in advance !

    • Beaches and Islands without too much of a hassle

      Philippines Yesterday


      Here's another question or two about beaches.

      I'll be travelling with a friend in Dec - mainly to Luzon and flying in to Manila. We are undecided about taking a beach holiday though, largely because we were thinking of putting that at the end of the trip, which is 26th or 27th Dec.

      I have read blogs that Boracay is quite crazy at this time of the year, and worse during the Christmas season? It is really accessible though and provides a direct flight home to Singapore for us.

      Here are my questions:
      1. Is there a really nice beach on Luzon itself that might be a good place to chill out for 4 - 5 days? Perhaps with some snorkelling thrown in?

      2. We have considered Palawan - El Nido - but that looks like quite a bit of transfers from Puerto Princesca. Is this true and will this area be as busy during the Christmas season?

      Heathrow Yesterday

      My son booked a ticket through a travel agent.He is arriving from India to Heathrow by Air India at 11-30 and next flight from Gatwick to Amsterdam by BA at 15:50. I dont think he has enough time to go trough passport control & reach Gatwick. So I think a separate ticket from Heathrow to Amsterdam is safer. Both flights from terminal 4 but he needs to go through passport control, baggage claim then check in again. Please advise if this is a better plan & how much time needed for transfer. Sorry for the long message and thank you in advance.

    • Hiring a porter to carry things from Namche to Chukkung while trekking 3 Passes?

      Khumbu Himal Yesterday

      I was wondering if it is possible (probably) and also safe to hire a porter in Namche Bazar or maybe already lukla to carry some gear to Chukkung, while I carry on to hike the 3 Passes. Later I'd pick up the gear in Chukkung for the remainder of the trip so it would have to be stored away in some lodge (which I'd be happy to stay at of course).
      Would this be feasable?
