We predict a three day excursion What do you plan to do during those days? Because Komodo national park is also very famous for its exceptional underwater life, so many people do a mix of land excursion (Komodo & Rinca island) to see the dragons & underwater adventures by diving (or snorkeling) to see Manta Rays, turtles, sharks and more. ...

Just book a bus ticket and go. I usually use Greyhound, which only works if your journey starts in the US (they will contract the Mexican portion of your ticket with a Mexican company). The return journey either has to be booked with Greyhound at the same time as a round-trip ticket, or you have to buy your ticket from a Mexican company. You may get ...

Detroit's Devil's Night, was, generally speaking, more about arson and fires, than vandalism and personal injury and death. Be aware that the city has been combating what is now called "Angel's Night" since the mid-90's and for most of the early 00's, the arson levels were near normal. There was a slight increase in 2010 and 2011, but for the last two years, ...

Bride kidnapping, in general, is specific to the Kazakh community. It's not what Western communities would imagine of kidnapping, in that the woman's family is often aware of it happening and indeed (and terribly) their knowledge of it is used to help pressure the woman into agreeing via social isolation and exclusion. It's largely ritualized and does not ...

There is no blanket ban on Pakistani nationals for visiting J&K. When a visa is issued to a Pakistani national for visiting India their visa specifies the cities/towns they are allowed to go. You may or may not get permission to visit Kashmir but to find out you would have to apply for a visa and in your application you need to mention where all you want ...

Almost all earplugs sold for work situations. When working you are not supposed to block out all sounds and responsible employers will supply earplugs that take out the hard edge of sounds but not all of it. The plugs you see for sale for travel are OK as well as long as you do not have the 'wax, you will not hear a sound when sleeping' kind. And I have ...

You could try ear protection which are designed to attenuate not eliminate noise. Currently dubs seem to be popular, designed for concerts and reduce sound by 12db only. But there are other options out there. DUBS Acoustic Filters are advanced tech earplugs that reduce volume without sacrificing the clarity of sound I've never tried them, but they get ...

No. From this source, Cape Town attracts millions of tourists on an annual basis. From the SA police and here, the number of contact crimes annually is of the order of 10 000. It is hard to qualify the split, but the vast majority of these violent crimes are in the townships / ghettos and on the Cape Flats, and the victims are local. These areas are highly ...

You may want to compare it with other cities that you have visited. For instance, since your profile mentions UK, Buenos Aires and Tel Aviv: Tel Aviv 66.86 London 51.83 Buenos Aires 37.43 Cape ...

As others have said, I see no reason to expect trouble. I would like to expand upon something that has been mentioned by others: Back in cold war era Russian tourists would be treated with some suspicion because the Russian government didn't allow the average person to travel. Thus if you did encounter a Russian "tourist" there was a fair chance they were ...

I think better lights are the only real solution, especially if the road lines are unclear. I've always had more difficulty driving at night and try to stick with well-lit roads or streets I'm familiar with.

There is not much you can do to support seeing lane markings. I would still visit an eye specialist (especially if you are getting old) because you can have nyctalopia (the inability to see the lane markings on low light is one warning sign) or photophobia, sensitivity to light (the rain causes strong light reflexes which does not allow the eye to see ...
