The easiest way to answer this is to check the Transport for London Journey Planner, this will show the various ways you can get there and also highlight any (planned) closures, construction, etc. Running Gatwick to London Bridge through that it suggests: 17 mins (national-rail) Southern to East Croydon Rail Station 19 mins (national-rail) Southern ...

I'm assuming that the Chiswell street is the one in central London. With a postcode of EC1Y 4SA or similar The best option would be the Thameslink rail service from Gatwick to Farringdon station, and then transfer to the underground for a short journey to Moorgate or Barbican, depending on which end of the street you want. There will then be a 3 or 4 min ...

There are no train lines to all stations. As pnuts comments, Belle Savoie Express has a bus line from Moutiers (train & bus station) to Courchevel 1650. Timetables Here you can find the timetable (pdf file): http://www.mairie-courchevel.com/download/PRATIQUE/Transport/2014-2015/lr_t5_la_tania_-_courchevel.pdf Can also be found here (more dynamic ...

Boats are "only" a good option when: travelling between islands that are close to each other (circa 1h journey) boats used are modern, on-time and in a good state For instance, to travel between the island of Sao Vicente & Santo Antao, the boats are on-time, in a good state and indeed pretty recent. So you can definitely feel safe and plan your trip ...

As SpaceDog mentions, there is currently a lot of disruption at London Bridge station at the moment. I'd recommend getting the Gatwick Express straight to Victoria (or a normal Southern Trains service if you don't want to pay the extra for the express), then getting the District or Circle line to Monument, and walking over the bridge. There's no point ...

The ones I've seen work on a scratch-off method and apparently lack a magnetic stripe, so I think you'd be lining up to show it to the guy in the booth. Day Passes are printed on card paper; Weekly Passes and Metropasses have a magnetic strip for automatic turnstiles and so, like tokens, work at all subway/RT station entrances whether staffed or not. On ...

If you have a bike that can support your luggage (i.e. you are bicycle touring, which I assumed initially) or you have a single item such as a backpack you can carry while biking you should just ride to the airport from Rotterdam centre. Less than 20 minutes, cheaper and easier. All routes google maps suggests are fine and will get you there over bike-paths ...

It's been a while, but I thought it might be nice to update this question. Last summer I've visited japan and found a camping ground at lake Aokiko. I've stayed at the Aokiko camping ground (http://www.aokiko.com/), also home of the "Evergreen outdoor center". Despite the english name, the staff doesn't speak a word English, I was happy with my ...

The fastest way is by Shinkansen - anything else is much slower. No, flying will be just a tiny bit slower, but also cheaper. This is especially true if one arrives at NRT and wants to go to Kyoto immediately. Then just hop on a Peach or Jetstar flight to KIX, and take the Haruka to Kyoto (with the massive discount offered by the Icoca & Haruka ...

Wikitravel has a get in section from the airport. Evidently they believe the taxis to be $8-$12, so maybe you can negotiate towards the lower end. There's the public buses, not comfortable, but $0.55 or less - so hey, bargain. They do go on to say that it's not that ideally situated to the city center, but perhaps you could bus in, and then take a taxi to ...

Apparently, you're supposed to use a color picture. pnuts has pointed out that Navigo's FAQ does not not mention anything about color: Que dois-je faire avant d’utiliser mon passe Navigo Découverte ? coller une photo d’identité (de face, tête nue, fond neutre, 35x41mm, non utilisée, non scannée, non photocopiée) (Google Translate) ...

I have sent an email to the tourist office, and they replied: The direct road is not accessible by car until April the 24th. A not-so-big detour via Ueda is the best (see screenshot below). By public transport, the best is to take the bus from Kusatsu to Karuizawa, then the normal train from Karuizawa to Nagano and Yudanaka. ...

There is a bus that runs between the two from Shirone Kazan (白根火山) which is right next to Kusatsu to Yudanaka (湯田中) for 1500 yen and only takes 80 minutes (barring traffic jams). From Yudanaka you can walk to Jigokudani in about 30 minutes or so. However this website hasn't been updated since November and it sounds like the schedule may have changed then ...

There are also a number of taxi companies that will take you from the train station at Moutiers to the various Courchevel resorts: http://www.courchevel.com/winter/en/taxis-rs93.html Prices start around 65€ one way for 1-4 people.

No, the Go Card is not valid in Cairns. As you quote yourself, the Go Card is only valid for transport in areas managed by TransLink in South East Queensland, and as detailed by TransLink these are roughly bounded by the Sunshine and Gold Coasts.
