Google reverse image search says that it might be Feldkirch, Vorarlberg. Indeed the church and the first house in the foreground (the one with the two windows underneath the straight part of the roof) seem to be the ones in the picture below from Wikipedia: File:Feldkirch3.jpg, Wikimedia Commons, CC by SA 3.0 Google maps places it here. By precise ...

It's feldkirch. I live near there. (It's the view from the schattenburg, the blue "hypo" sign in both pictures is the same sign)

Paying tips to the waiter or the hotel staff is always appreciated and never considered offensive in Iran. Although I would expect most waiters to accept the tip, be advised there is a complicated system among Iranians called Taarof (Tarof, Taroof), of which any tourist visiting Iran should be aware. Read this post to get a grasp of it: Iranian Taxi ...

The tourist tax is a legitimate tax, and it varies across Indonesia because it is applied at the local district level rather than as a national tax. Areas that are more likely to see tourist activity and do not have other income sources are those most likely to apply a tourist tax, with Bali being a prime example. The best source I've found for this ...

After some searching on Foursquare and Google Maps I've found the following places: Sultan Backparadies Open from 6AM to 10PM and located 800 meters from the heart of Oktoberfest. The address is Goethestraße 40. Judging by the photos, the place serves eggs, salad, sandwiches and a variety of bakery. Dunkin Donuts Open 24 hours per day and located near ...

In the past it was not common to pay tip but now it's OK. Especially in Tehran (capital city of Iran). Of course if you want to tip a waitress you should be careful a little more because its rare yet but it doesn't mean that you cant tip a waitress. It's easy to tip, go to him, give him a thanks for good service and pay the tip! I personally put the tip on ...

This is a concept that simply does not exist (at least not in widespread form) in Europe, and if it did exist, it probably would not be popular. While the USA has many people who love being spoiled by services (e.g. getting your groceries delivered to your car instead of taking them there yourself; getting your dinner delivered to your car instead of having ...

First, you need to know that a lot of restaurants aren't serving home cooked meals. Having said that, a recent law was set about this and now, the restaurants have to clearly write which meals are home made. It is called "fait maison". So if you see for instance : "tout ici est fait maison", then it means that all the meals are home made. You will also see ...

It's Melech HaFelafel on the corner of King George and Agripas. (And has been there for decades).

You can find sea cucumber in markets near harbor or hotel restaurant. The price is around NT$400/600g in port markets, but it depends on some factors. In hotel restaurant, a set of sea cucumber in Evergreen Hotel is about NT$2000. I think there are meals of sea cucumber in most 5-star hotel. If you can read Chinese, have a check on this website for this ...

It's not uncommon, so you can buy them in any traditional market. There are, however, the real one and the "fake" one. I will recommend going to a decent restaurant and order a dish with it. Most fancier Chinese restaurants should have it.

I ate at a very swank New York City café (located in the Neue Gallerie) and the suggested tip calculation was way, way off in the restaurant's favor. I wrote the Consumer Protection Bureau, never heard back. Check the calculation of the tip, required or not.

I used to use Foursquare for that purpose frequently and it never let me down. Recently however, it seems that the user ratings cannot be trusted anymore (biased, falsified etc.). There were some 9+ star restaurants I visited in different cities and was totally disappointed with both the quality of the food and the price (aka tourist trap). So, I usually ...

I found this recently and it gives a good set of tips. Basically it answers the question the other way around. Not how to find a good restaurant but how to avoid a bad one. One kf the most intersting is the one that relates the quality of the menu print with restaurant quality. There are several intersting tips: ...

I doubt this has anything to do with customs. 'Thank you' in English means acceptance, whereas in Polish - denial. If someone asks you if you want something and you say 'thank you' as an answer in English, it means you want it, but, in Polish, it means that you don't. Consider: Would you like a cup of coffee? Thank you. In English: I want the coffee. ...
