comment Most luxurious Bars/Lounges and overall night spots in South Africa
Could you narrow that down? Currently your question is rather broad - there are many, many cities in South Africa. Perhaps you could indicate the cities you will be going to on your trip?

@Tom - Welcome to Travel.SE. you posted your question as an answer to this question. I've converted it to a comment for now, but it's still misplaced - you'll want to click the 'Ask Question' button at the top right of the page, and then more experts will be likely to see your question and try to answer it :)

comment How early can you go through airport security for an International flight?
Connection into Santiago? You mean out of? Otherwise you still haven't said the airport you are wondering about. I would also consider changing the title to reflect the airport to avoid answers about, say, US airports...

comment When and where do I have the highest chance of seeing auroras?
@gerrit the claim on the wiki page (I know, Wiki but still) is for 99%. Unless you know of another one that's statistically significantly higher (or even close) I would think that answers it pretty well, and takes into account the climate/weather. I don't believe (but could be wrong) that geomagnetic activity is scientifically predictable?

comment Travel without a purpose to Bali
do you just not want hotels, or want free accommodation or what? Why no hotels? Would hostels suffice, for example?
