  • Hi Sally,

    Trekking in Nepal is AMAZING, and not nearly as intimidating/difficult as many people anticipate. Conditions, in terms of weather, tend to vary over the course of the year, although you can do shorter treks (like the Poon Hil…
  • Wow. That's definitely a holiday mission! It looks like the right time to visit as well, because there are plans for an airport to built over the nexy years and this will certainly change the island forever.

    The only way to get there is…
  • Hello there,

    Thailand is brilliant for kids as there's so much to see and do, as well as lots of interesting wildlife. I would definitely recommend a visit to the floating markets, the Erawan Waterfalls not far from Bangkok, as well as …
  • Hello there,

    Here's the baggage guide on the BA website: http://www.britishairways.com/travel/bagchk/public/en_gb

    For most destinations, you can take two bags weighing up to 32kg each. However, this can vary depending on …
  • Hello,

    Yep. The advice above is definitely good. It's even more important to carry something with you during treks or visits to remote places, as there may not be doctor available within a couple of days walk! The best thing to do is as…
  • Skyscanner is definitely the best of the bunch I reckon. I find that ebookers is pretty good too. We often find deals on ebookers that wouldn't even have access to as tour operators, so it's a very good starting point. Expedia tends to come out a li…
  • Hello there,

    Ah yes. I turned 30 last year, and it's definitely something worth celebrating (or commiserating - I guess it depends on which way you look at it).

    Basically, you could go for Asia or for Central America at t…
  • Hi Angeeelar,

    Sounds like a great trip! You're packing loads into two weeks, but I reckon that you should have time to see everything that you're hoping for. In terms of islands to visit, it's difficult to say where you'll get the best …
  • Hello there,

    I can't offer insights into all of the destinations that you've mentioned, but I can definitely help you out with a couple.

    I think that Cape Town would be an absolutely amazing place to spend NYE - fireworks …
  • Yep. Agree with all of the above.

    Really I would say don't take anything that you would be sad to lose (except perhaps your camera - and always burn two copies of your pics to disc so that you can send one home).

  • Hello there,

    I totally understand your predicament. There's quite a lot of pressure involved in choosing a once-in-a-life-time experience and so much worry about getting in wrong. Maybe the best thing to do is make a massive list of pla…
  • Hello historical travel,

    How about going back to the ancient Khmer civilisation and visit the Temples of Angkor in Cambodia. These are absolutely stunning, especially as sunrise. Angkor Wat is by far the most famous. There are also some…
  • Hello,

    Wow. The world is your oyster really! So are so many great places to get married in the world that are bound to be truly unforgettable. I guess it depends on the kind of experience that you're after.

    Thailand - stunn…
  • Hi Ellen,

    I think that you're best bet is heading for a Thai boxing school on one of the Eastern Islands such as Ko Pha Ngan, Ko Tao or Ko Pha Ngan (famous for the Full Moon parties), as the heavy rains tend to hit the Phuket side of T…
  • Hello there,

    It's east to get really hung up on weather and climate charts when booking a trip to Thailand. Strictly speaking, the weather tends to be at its driest and brightest from mid-November to April. Having said that, there's a c…
