There are two options, both roughly equidistant and neither an obvious winner: Japan is about 10 hours from Sydney, with direct flights to Tokyo. While snow is rare in Tokyo itself, there is tons of the white stuff anywhere in the Japan Alps (eg. Nagano), on the Japan Sea coast (eg. Kanazawa) and up in Hokkaido, where ski bunny haven Niseko has become a ...

Low-cost airline Jetstar offers inexpensive flights from Australia to Japan, which certainly ticks all your boxes. A northern city such as Sapporo normally has snow around Christmas and will have many Christmas-related festivities and decorations. There are also some Christian churches, if you are so inclined. Citizens of Australia and New Zealand can enter ...

Last time I was in Barcelona I parked next to the Sagrada Familia and spent 15 EUR for 24 hours. This is the underground car park at the Sagrada Familia market, which worked perfectly for me. Otherwise, if this is too expensive for you, Parkopedia has several options ranging from 12 to 36 EUR for 6 hours. The 12 EUR option is the AparcaandGo parking at the ...

I ask myself after travelling to Cuba. All places I visited were free of charge, including Varadero and other major spots like Guardalavaca. Before I visit Cuba I read that you have to pay for access to the beaches, but this information is outdated or false: you don't have to pay for access anywhere. Interesting snorkeling sites I visited include: Coral ...

Well, I would like to present some different, than Mark's & Piotr's, point of view. tl;dr Is it possible to visit both places the same day? Yes, it is possible to do the single trip with Auschwitz and Wieliczka in one day! Hiring a car or taking an organized trip would be my recommendation. Public transportation would be cheaper but yet more ...

Your hotel in Sofia may be willing to store your bags, especially if you are staying some nights there again on the far side of the UK journey.

No, there aren't. While branded the "Penguin Parade", the entire penguin colony site is actually operated by Phillip Island Nature Parks, a non-profit organization, and the basic "General Viewing" option only buys you entry to the trails and seating area to watch the penguins waddle ashore. Actual guided tours cost more. There are other penguin colonies ...

Although camping in Byron Bay and surrounding suburban areas is not permitted, if you head north of Byron Bay along the Pacific highway there are numerous free parking spots. One of them is the Yelgun rest area. There is also one about 5 minutes north of the Byron turn off. If you go further north, you can also find the Sleepy Hollow rest area even further ...

Based on the Sophia airport website, with its lack of information on left luggage options, combined with the fact that several other sites mention that there is not left luggage on the airport, I would say that you can't leave your luggage at the airport. Wikitravel has a page about Sophia and they do mention luggage several times on the page, including ...

I found a great place called Saunia at the Gallerie in Nové Butovice. It has at least 5 types of sauna and a steam room, relaxation areas, cold pool shaved ice, and cold water buckets. Only thing missing from my requirements are the pool and hot tub. For 2 people for two hours we paide 450 CZK. Towels were included :D

A while ago, my Paris/Nice train ticket was 17 euros, booked maybe 3 months ahead of my trip; booked the day before travel, my friend's ticket on the same train was 60 euros, so booking your train seat months ahead can get you a better price. Megabus (uk.megabus.com for Europe; us.megabus.com for USA) tickets are much cheaper than Eurolines tickets and the ...

Car wise, look at services like "rentacheapie", much cheaper than your usual rental agencies. Another option is the bazbus (Google it). Public transport is useless in South Africa, but there are systems in place to transport tourists. Secondly, I would not rent a local guide in South Africa, most people's knowledge is very limited to their local region, ...
