      Hi, does anybody know the timing of bus from Ipoh to lumut.
      I only manage to find Kesatuan Express tickets online, & they only have 3 timings: 11.55am, 1.45pm, & 4.30pm.

      Do I need to buy tickets online, or are there buses of other timing?

      Hakone Yumoto to Miyanoshita

      Hakone May 28, 2015 at 11:34 PM

      On my final day in Hakone I plan to c/out from my ryokan (Hoeiso) and travel from Hakone Yumoto to lunch at Iroriya which is near Sokokura. I read that I should take the "Hakone-machi line" bus from Hakone Yumoto Station (Bus H), to "Sokokura". Then walk for 5 minutes. Map of bus stop only shows "Kami-Sokokura" though..
      Is it the same stop?
      Iroriya: Local name いろり家. Local address 〒250-0404宮ノ下296

      This bus from Hakone Yumoto passes Miyanoshita Station. Would it be faster to grab the train from Hakone-Yumoto Station to Miyanoshita Station then the bus rather than sit on the bus all the way from Hakone-Yumoto Station?

    • Weather in the Maldives late October/early November?

      Maldives May 27, 2015 at 3:33 AM

      Hi everyone!!
      We are strongly considering the Maldives for our honeymoon in the last week of October and first week of November. However I have recently read mixed reviews on the weather and I just wanted to ask on here, has anyone travelled around this time and if so what has it been like? It is such an expensive trip that we would hate to think we could be rained in for the whole trip! Don't get me wrong, we wouldn't mind an odd shower here and there! Please can someone advise as we need to book soon :-) look forward to hearing from you all xx thanks.

      Tippng in China

      China 3 hours ago

      From my experiences here in Australia dealing with Chinese people, tipping does not seem to be part of the Chinese culture.

      My wife and I are going on a 11 night tour and staying in 5 cities + one overnight train. The brochure states, "even All Tipping up to the value of $(A)150!"

      I'm guessing the $150 is supposed to go to the tour leader and maybe drivers. Should we give something extra and maybe even before tours start to get better service. What about tipping in cafes, taxis etc when we are left to our own devises? I don't want to offend anyone, but nor do I want to encourage a tipping culture in another country.

      Any help appreciated - thanks

      Is the port located close to the tourist area?
      Will there be guides available to take us on tours when we get off the ship?
      We are mainly interested in scenery and taking photos - can you suggest what the best things for us to see would be.

      Hi all,
      We will be travelling to Vietnam for the first time during February 2016. We fly into Ho Chi Minh from Siem Reap, before moving onto Phu Quoc. We are considering about four days in HCMC. We enjoy Eco, history, eating and drinking and generally roaming aimlessly....
      So here are the questions
      What to see / do in HCMC, is four days enough time
      Which are the best areas of the delta to see to experience Vietnamese lifestyle and is it worth spending a few days in this area.
      Best and most interesting way to Phu Quoc
      Many thanks in anticipation
