Hi everyone, we have about 2 hours to kill between landing in Nadi and our transfer out to the islands. Can anyone suggest something to do in this time. We don't want to go too far from the airport, and would prefer something in walking distance, but don't mind a short taxi ride.
Thanks in advance
Apparently on the first Sunday of each month there is an event in the square. I would really appreciate if someone could advise what it is and when would be the best time to visit. Merci.
Hi there -
Anyone have any tips/suggestions for paying this?
My wife needs a visa and the advice from the High Commission in Australia is that the fee (SBD$200) needs to be paid direct to the Ministry of Commerce, Labour and Immigration in Honiara. They suggest "find someone who can pay it for you there."
Needless to say, this is a bit difficult if you don't live there!
Has anyone managed to find someone who can assist with this at a reasonable price?
This policy seems ridiculous and certainly isn't encouraging tourism!
Hello, I would travel to Australia next week, I have an adapter with 2 pins slanted instead of 3 pins (2 slanted and 1 for grounding), do you have any suggestion that the 2 pins only would work on Australia? Thank you for any help.
Anyone here tried a deal from Travel Online?
Found this cruise tour for 2N - Brisbane to Sydney - travelonline.com/cruises/des...
But would like to hear your opinion if others have tried it with them and how was it? If this is good for a family? How worth it?
Thanks a lot J.
Can I get a taxi or any other transport from halls gap to wonderland car park
I will be staying at the halls gap motel. ( I know I can walk up from Halls Gap, but it will be a bit too far for me)
I want to start my walk from the wonderland car park, then down to halls gap on the front of the mountain path.
Is the any way I can get a taxi or anything from the motel to the car park on morning?
1. where is the best place to buy wine and beer in queenstown, southland, westcoast, around picton?
2. Are the supermarkets the same pricing for meat (beef, chicken beasts)? Which supermarket chain has the best deals?
3. Is BBQ in NZ charcoal or electricity ? What do I need to buy if I want to do BBQ at my accomodation? For eg, BBQ utensils, butter? oil? seasoning? etc Do I hv to stock all these items up? What are the basic seasoning provided there?
4. Is coffee provided at guesthouse, backpackers, hostels in the morning? I would like to hv coffee before I drive to wake up and need to get coffee somewhere if possible!
OR can someone tell me what are the things I hv to stock up at the supermarket before I start my road trip becos these items are not provided at any accomodation in NZ.
5. I intend to rent a car to stock up at a cheaper price for travel. I hv heard of fuel savings programme at supermarket in NZ and wonder what is this about?
6. Where can I buy bluff oysters if I am not intending to drive up to bluff. I would love to try local seafood, and so far I have only heard of bluff oysters. Can someone tell me more on what type of local seafood and fish I should buy and try at local supermarket? I heard NZ has lots of such good food and I am getting hungry reading alone! THANKS.

Hi I'm coming to Gold Coast this December. This will be my honeymoon trip. Can someone suggest me which is the right location for me to stay and recommend the median level price hotel for us.I'm sure it's peak season during that period. I don't want to stay far also since I need to take public transportation.
2 of us will like to go for Yanchep/Pinnacles/Lancelin day tour either 12 or 13 Nov 2015.
We are travelling on a quite tight budget coz so much to do in Perth.....
1.Anybody can suggest this day trip other than travel agents to lower cost, driving for us is quite inconvenient?
2.Anybody travelling on these days can add us or go with us to share cost?
3.Is whale watching worth it?
Can also contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Good Day Everyone!
My employment contract ended last March 31, 2015 (3 years employment). I am planning to go on a vacation in Australia and visit friends there with my partner's mother and sister. Since I am now unemployed, would it be grounds for my application to be denied even if I have funds and a return ticket? I am planning to apply a tourist visa this April.
Hope to be enlightened. Thank you very much!
We are looking to get married in Moorea Tahiti the week of April 20th to 28th 2015 at our rental home, looking for a Universal Life minister, officiant, or similar to preform a simple service at our location and photographer please reply to my email Tahoegirl007@gmail.com Extra special day for us and I want to make it memorable, we are NOT interested in the Traditional Tahitian Style Wedding.
my son is turning 12 on thursday. Any suggestions for a cool thing to do with him? surfing, kayaking and fishing are pretty standard activities for us.
I am planning to visit Perth in May with a 3yo toddler and will be 5th pregnant by then.
I want to go to a farmstay where my toddler is able to feed the animals.
We would like to stay over for a night only.
Which farmstay do u recommend?
We have rented a spaceships Alpha 2 Berth car for 5 days. We are planning to sleep overnight in the car for 4 days. I have several questions to ask before we are heading on the road. We are travelling on a budget, but want to stay safe and be able to take hot showers along the way.
1) I read an itinerary from britz.com.au, sounds like a good one: or you have a better recommendation?
- The Entrance
- Port Stephens / Tomaree National Park
(Overnight at One Mile Beach Holiday Park)
- Port Macquarie / Koala Hospital
- The Sea Acres Rainforest Centre
- Overnight at The Sundowner Breakwall Tourist Park
- Coffs Harbour
- Miniature Dutch Village
- Overnight at Park Beach Holiday Park
- Byron Bay
- Either Mount Warning, Nightcap National Park, Broken Head Nature Reserve
- Cape Byron
- Overnight at North Coast Holiday Parks Clarkes Beach
- Fortitude Valley
- Returning the car to spaceships.
2) The above place to stay required to pay fees between $40 - $60 per night, just to park in their property. Does the rest area or the national park allow to be parked overnight for free? Are they safe? Any recommendation?
3) I want to see the most beautiful side of Australia, can you recommend some places I should not miss along the road trip.
Thanks all !
I just want to know if it is advisable to spend a 5 day vacation in Fiji in mid January. I've had a look at the weather averages and rain, and it seems it is very risky. My point is that i would not enjoy my vacation if it would be rainy all the time. Can you give me advice ? Should I delay my trip and go in May or June( months in which there are the less rain). Thanks.
Hi, we will be arriving from Sydney landing at 17.10 on a Friday evening at the end of October. We are picking up a car at the airport at the start of a 32 night tour of the north island staying mainly at rented bach's at various locations. We intend staying one night in the Auckland area before heading up to Whangerei on Saturday morning. Before our journey north we need to stock up on food, wine, beer and a chilly bin etc. Can anyone suggest a mid-range motel / hotel that is within walking distance of bars & restaurants that also has a suitable supermarket / store nearby for us to stock up at. We would prefer not to stay too close to the airport as choices are limited, a suitable suburb of Auckland would be preferable. Any help would be much appreciated.
I need to know must roam places of new zealand and how can I use my bank account there?
Hi, I would like to know if anyone can suggest me a good hostel in Queensland?
On a cruise that will be in Busselton for a day in May. Can anyone suggest things to do apart from what the Jetty has to offer. From what I understand I should allow approximately 3 hours at the Jetty. Any help would be appreciated.
Hi to all!!
I have heard two opposite opinions about Australia as a place to live in - on one hand that it is very boring place, nothing much to do there, you can´t even swim because the waves are too high, not so much cultural life like in Europe. On the other hand others think the nature is amazing,there is always a job to find and people are nice...
So does anyone have any experience in living for a longer period in Australia? Perth, Melbourne, Sydney...?
I intend to try to enter Phd studies there and, if I like it, to stay there.
I would like to hear your arguments for both positive and negative sides.
Thank you very much in advance.
All the best!
Im coming there for a holiday was wondering if there was transport on a sunday
