  1. Thank you so much , this has been a lot of help.
    If everything goes according to plan, I should arrive in Munich on a Monday very early, and I have to be in Switzerland (in Walzenhausen) on Thursday in the afternoon. So that gives me 3 days? in Munich. How many cities of the ones you mentioned do you think I could visit? And which ones do you recommend the most? I'll be there in February
  2. Nurnburg and Salzburg are the most popular/touristy, but to be honest Munich is a fantastic city so even if you only manage to fit one trip outside of Munich, you won't be disappointed. All of the recommendations are easy to get to by train and you can be there and back to wherever within the day.

  3. Hey! In Feburary of next year I'm going on holidays to Thaliand (Krabi and Phi Phi area), Singapore and Kuala Lumpur. It will be my first time in this places, I want tips like best area or hotel to stay in each city, things to do, where to eat, where to shop, etc...
  4. I'm at Gatwick waiting for my flight to Japan - any recommendations are really welcome. I'm there for 2.5 weeks so I'll be going all over.

  5. I'm going to Disneyland Paris for 4 days

  6. HidaTakayama was lovely and one of my fave places. Hiroshima and Miyajima are great too. I found Kyoto overrated as fuck.

  7. Thank you. All of those are on my todo list. I’ve got 3 nights in Kyoto but loads of day trips from there but it’s so difficult to know what you’re gonna like so keeping my fingers crossed, I’ve tried to pick a different range of places.

    I wish I’d upgraded to business though. 16hours of flying is lonnng.
  8. I've been studying in Prague for the past few months and now that my program is about to wrap up, I'm deciding whether to stay here or move on. I have been considering Lisbon, Barcelona or Berlin. Do any of you live in any of these cities, and if so, what is your favorite/ least favorite thing about living there?

    I've never lived there, but having visited Berlin I can honestly say it is an amazing city. Especially as it's so big as well, with lots of very different areas to explore, which should keep it very interesting for a very long time!

    I'll be in Dublin twice this month, once to see Steps in concert, once for work. I did the obvious touristy stuff last time I was there, but if anyone has any good restaurant recommendations that would be amazing!

  11. Ddd I did not know Steps were on tour! Where's it on? I'll stand outside and look for some PJ Steps stans to fight.

  13. I'm travelling to New York next Monday for two weeks, staying in Brooklyn. I haven't been there since 2002 and I'm sure it's changed a lot since then.

    Any tips on not so obvious places to go? From food and drinks to book and record stores (I already have Record Runner on my to do list).

    I trust people on this forum when it comes to these things.

  14. I just found out I'm headed to London the third weekend of December. Obviously a lot of you probably have great familiarity. Would love some fun nightlife, food, entertainment recommendations!
  15. @nastyboy1981 – New York's changed a lot since 2002, obviously. Now a lot of the good stuff – record shops, bars, restaurants – are in Brooklyn, so you'll probably be spending less time in Manhattan. I'd have a rummage through sites like Lonely Planet to see how/what's new since you've been. Ohmyrockness is a good resource to see which shows/free instores/etc are on across the city too. Off the top of my head, some brief recommendations: check out Rough Trade, the new Whitney art museum, Chelsea Market, MoMA PS1, and Brooklyn Bridge park.

    @selectual – have you been to London before?

    I preferred Brooklyn to Manhattan when I was there this summer.
  17. Nope, it'll be my first time in London!
  18. I'm travelling to NZ and Australia in Feb/Mar and wondered if anyone had any advice about how to get the best out of Sydney Mardi Gras? Is the big party worth the money? What's the best way to enjoy the parade? Anything thats a bit under the radar we should explore?
    Also, Anybody been to Auckland Pride? Anything worth knowing?
  19. London's good in that it's extremely walkable, so if you're looking to tick off a lot of the obvious tourist trial (Trafalgar Square, Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, etc etc) they're all within walking distance of each other. There's a lot of good resources online for self-guided walking tours: you could box a lot off in a weekend without even needing to get the tube around much.

    For good art and culture, check out the Tate Modern (this is a must), and see what's on at the National Theatre or the South Bank Centre. Pick up a Time Out magazine/check out the website while you're here which will have cultural recommendations too. For eating and drinking, Soho and central London are fine, but if you want something a bit more cooler East London (Shoreditch, Hackney, Dalston) has a lot of amazing food and drink from right across the globe, it's just a little further off the tourist trail. It depends how much you want to explore really, but the transport system is super easy to get around.

    For gay stuff check out the QX website which has extensive daily listings of both mainstream stuff and more underground clubs and bars. You'll get a sense of where the clusters of bars and clubs are by looking through this if you want to do some random bar-hopping. Hope this helps!
