I've read Lonely Planet's Tahiti & French Polynesia guidebook from cover to cover. In the Mo'orea section, under "Sights", "Entertainment", "Live Music", etc...nothing about Tiki Village Center or Theatre. I get that some folk are anti- resort and tourist spots, but some of us old folks are disabled and past hiking and diving.
I admit, I love music and dance...even the corniest varieties.
We're going to be in Bagan on the 3rd of January 2013 and are planning to travel to Ngapali beach to arrive on the 9th January 2013. Can anyone suggest modes of transport between the two, we would prefer to travel by bus inorder to see more of the surroundings. Are there regular buses running? How long do they take?
If this is not possible then what are the alternatives; can you fly from Bagan? Are the flights regular? If you can't fly from Bagan the which airport services flights to the Ngapali beach area? Would it be more sensible to fly from the Lake Inle area?

I am currently in thailand for another week or so and I am planning to go to china for their new year.
I have either the option to get my china visa in bangkok then fly straight to beijing or fly to hong kong to get the visa then get a train to beijing.
I have heard off trailfinders visa department that it is very doubtful i will get a visa in bangkok and that it will be so much easier in hong kong, and they in hong kong may not even ask for a return flight or hotel booking, he even said they have just started issuing them at hong kong airport.
Can anybody help me out which route i should take.
Many thanks in advance
I'm looking for a private, clean room. A place with a tour desk is a plus. As is an outside balcony, or garden, or terrace. Inside decoration isn't necessary because I spend as little time inside a room as possible. I'm, quote, mature, so partying isn't necessary. Noise doesn't bother me. I usually prefer hostels over hotels because value is usually better as is the general ambience. I saw a nice two year old post but I'm trying to get something recent.
I am seeking a spiritual journey to Rishikesh and Varanasi. I've read Khajuraho is also a destination for spiritual travelers. Do you know if this is so? would you choose varanasi or khajuaraho if you only had 2 weeks to be in India? Thank you.
Hi all, as someone who has travelled significantly over the last few years, I just wanted to stress to my fellow travellers that Belfast is open for business. I wouldn't want to put anyone in danger visiting the city but trust me, it is still safe to come to the city.
OK so there are protests ongoing for the last 40+ days, but any of the trouble you see on your tv or read about on the internet is almost entirely confined to certain residential areas, outside the city centre and are happenning at night. I don't know about you but I wouldn't have gone wandering about the back streets of Bangkok, LA, East London, Delhi, La Paz, Favellas in Rio, etc at night and especially if there was an undercurrent of unrest or protests.
I don't want to start a discussion about the flags or protests, all I am saying is that if you are planning on coming to the city for a day or 2, I wouldn't be ... more »
Hi – I have 3-4 weeks in June in the US and would like to do some hiking. I am a moderately experienced and fit hiker, who has never hiked in the US before. Looking perhaps at some hiking that could be accessed by public transport- what would people recommend?
Many thanks in advance!
We would like to catch a direct flight with Uzbekistan Airways from Tashkent to Amritsar/India.
Does anyone have any advice on how to book this flight from Australia (no office here) and they
don't offer online booking. I emailed the airline repeatedly, but no response. I looked at a couple
of website, that claim to handle the booking, like edreams, but they get lousy reviews...
Hey guys, I just have a few questions that someone may be able to help me out with..
1. We arrive in mga airport late, about ten, and leave early, 644. We think probably stay at hotelrex on the way home just as something nice for our last night. I am curious what other people have done when arriving late, we are backpacking and want to do things cheaply as possible. Our first stop will probably be grenada or leon, but figured we'd have to do a night in Managua. Anything worth seeing in the city since we will have to be there a night?
2. Poste Rojo Treehouse. My boyfriend and I are young and can handle a party. I just have a really hard time with large spiders. How rustic is it? I can handle a crap bed, and bugs but large large spiders not so much. I realize I can't avoid them entirely in Nicaragua, but am I setting myself up for a bad situation?
3. Costa Rica. From sjds we we... more »
Just wanted to know what the best border crossing options are from Mexico to Guatemala. I am currently in Puerto Escondido but will soon be travelling through Oaxaca then to San Cristóbal de Las Casas. Ideally, the first place in Guatemala i want to visit is Tikal. With this in mind, can anyone recommend some itineraries?
Much appreciated as always :)
I and my 9-year-old are looking to find a situation in Paris this summer for maybe a month to learn French. Of course we can attend the Sorbonne but we are hoping to find something on a smaller scale and less expensive. Can anyone suggest a place we might be able to study and learn French. I am open to my son attending something with other children on his own in the mornings and having the rest of the day to play with French children. I could be attending something a little more advanced for somebody with maybe about three years of study in the distant past, but who has occasionally reviewed and read French since.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
Planning a trip to Europe and have the very beginning and end mapped out but need help with the middle. I will be leaving Germany Sept 25th or 26th and will be headed to Vienna, Austria. I am hoping to enter the Netherlands around Nov. 26th but I'm stuck as to what my route should be and through what countries. In order not to go over the 90 days in the Schengen area, I need to spend 3 weeks outside of those countries, preferably in Russia, Romania, Ukraine, possibly Belarus. Right now I'm thinking of Vienna, then Prague, Slovakia, then Hungary. Then Romania, Ukraine and Russia. I'd like to see all these countries but I'd definitely be willing to take out a couple in order to have less hectic traveling. Trying to make a route that doesn't waste excess amounts of time and not backtrack.
