It's safe. Per both the Japan Radiation Map and Safecast, radiation levels in Hokkaido are safe (green) at less than 0.05 microSieverts (μSv) per hour, or 1.2 μSv/day. For comparison, if you live in a brick or concrete house you get a dose of about 70 μSv/year, and if you spend 14 hours on a plane, you will get a dose of around 100 μSv from atmospheric ...

Each time I see such questions, I feel very frustrated. I'm from Russia, and I can't do anything to remove such articles, but I try to do my best to explain that people here, in Russia, aren't as xenophobic and dangerous as you can read in press. Did you hear about the story regarding the afroamerican been shot by police in USA some time ago? Does it mean ...

My first guess was the Nollendorfplatz area in Berlin but the second is Le Marais in Paris: Le Marais has "an emphasis on 'commercialism, gay pride and coming-out of the closet'" And if you would consider North America, I live very close to Davie Village in Vancouver. I do not think there's any gender identity or expression that would draw even a ...

Is it advisable to dive/snorkel in that region of the world? There is some recreational diving and snorkelling in Sierra Leone, but not much.

No you cannot, not as checked (or carry on if it's more than 100ml). From TSA's Prohibited Items page: When hovering over the Carry-on, you get the following note: (Less than 3.4 oz / 100 ml allowed) Anyway, other organizations (including IATA) suggest similar policies as well, you can safely say this is a worldwide policy.

We don't do specific recommendation on this site, so the best we can do is give you some ideas of places to look for cheaper accomodations. For purposes of expensive accomodation, you can consider the centre of Paris to be the 1st Arondissemont, essentially the centrepoint of this map. Anything in the area of the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel ...

As particular colours can be suggestive of certain things in certain cultures, there can't be one answer that fits all 'bad' neighbourhoods. My general rule of thumb is to behave like you know what you're doing and where you going and to dress like you belong. In other words, if you seem to fit your surroundings, you're least likely to be noticed or singled ...

Malaria is not an extremely serious concern in Mumbai, especially if you are only going to be there a week, and the thin protection that anti-malarials give you isn't really worth the nausea they deliver much more reliably. My recommendation for anywhere that isn't an actual swamp is DEET, a effective, long-acting insect repellent. It chases away ...
