The Royal Palace is easily reachable by foot from the train station - just follow Karl Johans gate ("gate" is Norwegian for "street", not an actual gate). Aker Brygge is a nice place to watch the harbour. The Norwegian National Opera and Ballet is also nearby if you're interested. Akershus Fortress from 1290 and the Viking Ship Museum should fit the ...

As @AriBrodsky said in his comment, if you are departing Canada from one of 8 airports that have United States border preclearance which are staffed by US Customs and Immigration officers, your luggage may be cleared all the way to your final destination. If you are not departing from an airport with these preclearance procedures implemented, then you will ...

Depends on the country and situation. In some areas, stranded passengers are taken to a nearby hotel but are restricted to that hotel. I encountered this with a delayed flight in Asia. Fortunately my nationality allowed me visa free entry so I entered through the immigration line, the others were escorted direct to the hotel bus by immigration and ...

I'm fairly sure your leg between Stockholm and London Heathrow won't actually be operated by Cathay Pacific, but will instead be a CX flight number on a BA (British Airways) flight. However, that won't make much difference, other than meaning that whatever happens you'll have to change terminals (BA from Stockholm arrives into Terminal 5, Cathay use Terminal ...

Yes. If you want to enter inside Turkey, you'll definitely need a visa prior to your entry i.e. visa on arrival is not applicable (phased out). The situation with the Turkish visa for Nigerian nationals is a little bit more complicated than one might expect. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs website reveals, Nigeria: Ordinary and official passport ...

Yes, if you want to leave the airport. However you can transit through the airport without a visa. The Turkish Ministry of Foreign Affairs says Question: I will be flying to Europe. I know that our aircraft will land in İstanbul. I am not planning to leave the transit lounge. Do I need to get transit visa? Answer: If you will not leave the ...

Rules in the US are usually the same for layover/transit and for entering the country so I don't think the fact that you would be transiting exempts you from any passport validity requirement. In your case, however, it seems Hong Kong is on the list of countries whose citizens can enter the US even if their passport expires less than six months after their ...

IAD is indeed a dreadful airport. A new train system has very slightly improved matters. From the exit past customs to the furthest gate at remote terminals can take 20 minutes easily. You will miss your connection if (a) your incoming flight is late, (b) the Border entry officer hassles you, (c) your luggage, which I believe you will have to re-check, is ...

Take a look at Airbnb, I did the search for a day of the week for the next month and found options from $50-$200 . There is a variety of listings there, most of them would be about renting a private room in some one's apartment and others you can rent the whole house if you like. My 2 cents, Airbnb is not for everyone, it depends on what kind of ...

GLO Hotel Kluuvi Helsinki In my opinion it's the best trade-off between position (Helsinki center) and price.

Yes, you can. Finland is part of the Schengen Area, which means US passport holders may enter without requiring a visa for up to 90 days within any 180 day period.

Truly authoritative information (i.e. directly from the government of Portugal) is proving very difficult to find, though several tourism sources (e.g. 1, 2) state that a transit visa is not required for citizens of most countries as long as you remain airside. The countries whose citizens do require an airport transit visa to transit Portugal even when ...

Lisbon airport is open 24 hours a day so you could probably stay overnight even if that's uncomfortable. In practice, if you make it to Lisbon (i.e. the airline does not deny boarding), I don't think you would get in trouble. The problem is that the transit must also be “short”. Countries do not always publish a strict guideline beyond that and I haven't ...

It looks like the retail marijuana outlet closest to the Denver airport is Timberline Herbal Clinic and Wellness Center. That looks to be a ~30 minute drive each way, or more like 90 minutes to 2 hours by mass transit. You might be able to arrange a ride with Supershuttle. But at best you're going to be cutting things close with a 4 1/2 hour layover. If you ...

You will need to go through UK immigration to change airports. I am assuming you are an Indian citizen and don't have a European residence permit. In that case, you will need a visa. Merely holding a short-stay visa (which is required to enter Spain) is not enough to qualify for visa-free transit. You won't be able to get this visa on arrival (in fact, you ...

Minneapolis native here. MSP airport is less than 20 minutes from either city by car, so you could probably spend a few of your spare hours seeing a little of what there is to see and still have plenty of time to get back through airport security. I live in Southern California now, so I have experience with both MSP and LAX, and FWIW, the latter seems to ...

Air India will not provide overnight accommodation on this route. I think All Nippon were the last to offer such a service, but even they have stopped it now
