Hello, good evening. I'm planning to travel to Tanzania next year (aroun March-April) for an anthropological research. My plan is to go to Mwanza and stay at least 4 weeks. But I have some concerns, especially when it comes to safety (I will be travelling by myself and I'm a 24 year-old woman) and accomodation (since I'll be staying for at least a month I can't afford to stay in a 5 star hotel)... Any tips, comments or suggestions? Thank you very much!
I was thinking about going to NYC for a couple of days to see a show and can either go right after Christmas, Dec 28/29 or right after NY Jan 4/5. The hotel rates, naturally, are about 1/2 the cost for the January dates but will the Christmas decorations still be up (Rockefeller Center, store windows)? I can also daytrip into NYC from the Philadelphia area (family can put me up for a couple of nights) if need be but am not thrilled about taking a train late at night. Thanks :-)
This will be my first time attending the Christmas Spectacular and I am so very excited!, but I'm not sure what to wear. Do I dress up like for the Opera or a level down? I know to dress nicely but I don't want to over do it.
Our tickets are for Dec 11 2013 at 5:00 pm
I've visited NYC dozens of times and go 3 or 4 times a year. However, I've never been January. I have the opportunity to stay in Brooklyn for a week or so and have decided to brave the weather. Other than shows, what else is going on that I could do and not freeze to death? Anything special going on in the winter months that I can't do any other time? Thanks so much in advance for any suggestions.
Im going to be in NYC for thanksgiving, we don't have thanksgiving in the uk so was just wondering if anywhere will be open. Will for example macdonalds even be open to get somthing to eat or does everywhere close and we will have to get room service?
We will be in NYC 24th-30th November so any suggestions of thinks to do or what the weather might be like would also be appreciated.
Thank you! Xx
I'm new to this forum so please bear with me. I'll be flying to New York with my wife on New years day on Emirates. I'll be staying there for a couple of days before taking a flight to Tampa, FL. My query is regarding the Tampa leg:
Since we are moving to the States for at least a year, we would have a lot of luggage; 2 checked baggages each as well as a hand carry case each. I recently went on Delta Airlines booking website and found them offering, to my utter astonishment, a First Class ticket for 192$ whereas their Economy class ticket was for 103$. Now if I travel first class I won't have to pay for the checked baggages etc. However, I also say another First Class ticket on the same flight worth 700$. I got a little suspicious.
Could someone please advise on what this First Class (G) fare means and whether if I purchase it I would actually be on First class.
A response would be much appreciated.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
i am going to New York mid Decwith my 11 & 14 year old kids.
we are all very excited.
One thing that is bothering me is the shopping.
my friends from home (the UK) have been and said you can buy as much as you want of anything & bring it home 7 others saying you are only allowed to bring £390 worth of stuff back & that the suitcases get checked & you will be forced to pay duty/tax/
Im not interested in tobacco or alcohol, just clothing apple stuff & toys. any info would be greatly appreciated.
I was wondering, if I could book tickets to Empire State building as a Christmas present for my husband. He would like to visit it, I´m a little afraid of it, but it might be something we "must" do when in town. So if I book the tickets, I must go myself.. Anyway. If I do book them, I would like to know witch time would be the best. I love taking photos, and maybe at sunset I would get nice ones. It would be 12th March (we will sstay a week, but this day is a special one for us, so I thought I would choose it).. So witch time would be the best, if I´d love to see the sunset there. At Paris, we went to Eiffel tower too late, and even if the city lights were nice, the photos didn´t look so good.
If I´m not so scared, that I cant take any photos ;)
He did also speak about visiting the Statue of Liberty, but I thing that normal building is easier for me. And is there even visits to the top of the statue anymore?
I checked New York pass, but it is quite expensive for a budget traveller.
Hello. I am interested in traveling to New York City for the first time between 12-25-13/ 1-1-14. I realize this is not a good time because of the holidays but with our schedule this is when we can get away. My question is: Are there any recommendation for vacation rentals that are safe from scams ? Are vacation rentals a good option compared to standard hotel lodging? Price? Any helpful advice for Times Square options will be greatly appreciated.
I've got my trip to NYC booked for after Christmas, we're staying at the Residence Inn Times Square (can't change it so don't tell me if I made a mistake!). After watching Jon Stewart's rant about Chicago pizza, it made me want to try some of the New York pizza so I can see if it's true that New York's is superior to our heavenly deep dish pizza. Willing to travel for the best as long as it's safe for 2 women to be going there. Slices or whole pizzas, either will do. Bring it on New York pizza fans!
Oh my.. I won one person flights to New York. I´m planning to change them to two persons flights to some European town (so that I could get two flights free), but just to make sure before I do that: How cheap you could book a hotel (not a hostel!) from reasonable area? Anything under 100e?? It migt be at april or at summer when we could get free from work. I have no ideas about the areas or anything and we have allways thought that it is too long flight, but before I change the tickets..must think first..
