Apparently not, the website explicitly lists this among the requirements: Same day arrival flight air ticket / e-ticket / boarding pass stub; […] Transfer to PRD / Macao within the same day of arrivals;

On my recent trip to Oman, I saw this wrapping service for the first time, presumably because it is not placed nearly as prominently on European airports (I fly mostly from AMS, DUS, CGN). During the thirty minutes that I watched the process at MCT, it was not once used to wrap suitcases. Instead, mostly Indian/Pakistani/Bangladeshi expatriate workers ...

While the shipping box is amply strong to keep the monitor from getting crushed, it is not as strong against punctures. And bubble wrap does not really address this aspect either. When I have flown with monitors, I have filled the space inside the box with folded clothing or sheets of cardboard. This helps protect the monitor if the corner of a large hard ...

Yes, you can check in anything you like as long as the airline is reasonably assured that a) it contains nothing nefarious/dangerous, and b) will survive the trip without disintegrating into bits along the way. However, what are you hoping to accomplish with the bubble wrap? The original cardboard box and its Styrofoam inserts have already been designed to ...

As you mention, your passport has no issue with immigration to Japan, then it just comes down to what you're doing there. You'll be able to show you have an exit flight from Japan, so that's fine, and that you want to just leave the airport for a few hours. Indeed, I did this exact thing in June - I had a few more hours than you, so I had the day in Tokyo, ...

Assuming you're a Thai citizen, you do not need a visa for stays in Japan of up to 15 days, so you are free to leave the airport. Go through immigration normally, state "transit" as purpose of visit, and show your onward boarding pass if needed. For what it's worth, you don't even need to leave the airport to get sushi, there's a decent restaurant in the ...

Changing Terminals at EWR I just found this nifty tool which allows you to compute the journey between terminals within one of several US airports. I ran a search, landing at Newark EWR and going from terminal A to terminal C (same thing seems to apply between B and C). Here is a lik the result. It turns out there is a shuttle connecting the terminals, and ...

If you are on transit through Newark, then you don't need to worry about transfer time. If you are on a point-to-point journey, then you would have to do the following: Deplane Collect your luggage (if any) Check-in for the next flight (so if you have luggage, you'll have to check in that) and get your boarding pass. Go through security So, schedule ...

Well, you've not given any real information from which we can assist you, like times, flight numbers, or even airlines. However, for an example, today's arrivals from MCO (Orlando) at or around 4:30ish pm, all come into Terminal C, gate 83. About an hour later, 3 flights depart to ARN (Stockholm) from Terminal C, gate 94. These two gate are about 5-10 ...

You will NOT go through customs in San Francisco. All Canada->US flights go through US immigration/customs in Canada before you depart. On arrival in the US you are basically treated as a domestic passenger - no need to go through customs/immigration, no need to re-clear security (presuming your flights are not in different terminals that are not connected ...

I was living in Shanghai until a few weeks ago. Taxi really is your best option at ¥170-¥220. If you really wanted to save the cash, then there are dedicated airport shuttle buses that run until about 23:00. In would take the one from Jing'an Temple as a good location, but there are others as well. That would cost ¥22 and take 50 minutes.

TL;DR: Take a taxi; or take a train, arrive early and use the money you saved on a nice meal/nasty bottle of baijiu at the airport. First of all, a sanity check: a normal metered taxi from central Shanghai to PVG should be on the order of ¥150, or roughly €20. If that's "too expensive", you're really not going to like the prices in Paris! (The ...

Sleeping in the airport should not be a problem. Your situation is not uncommon at all. The need to spend the night at the airport either for early flights or connecting flights happens. There is even a website dedicated to this subject with tips regarding the policy of the aiports about people sleeping and the best places to do it. ...

There are trains to Schiphol every hour through the night, it's the Heerlen end of the trip that make it difficult. So you could first go to Utrecht, sleep there and catch a train in the morning. Or go all the way to Leiden or Amsterdam by train on Saturday afternoon and take a train, bus or taxi on Sunday morning. Depending on how the type of ...

You weren't stopped for the simple reason that you weren't doing anything unusual or suspicious. There are many people whose jobs require them to travel frequently so that is not unusual enough to cause suspicion. And, anyway, the airport police see literally thousands or tens of thousands of people every day. Unless you're 2.15m tall and have bright green ...
