comment Which language(s) is most useful for backpacking Africa?
I'm not an authority so I'm not putting this as an answer, but you best bet is with the colonial languages. After English, French is the next most common official language in Africa, followed by Arabic and Portuguese. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

comment Can I fly with a gold bar?
You are flying it to Moscow, so you might get some scrutiny at heathrow from customs as they might think you're trying to violate the EU financial sanctions against Russia. Seriously though if your boss is too cheap to pay for a bonded courier for his gold bullion, He deserves whatever bad happens to his cargo. I Imagine though that your boss wants to avoid a bonded courier as this transfer is a little shady. If that's the case I'd get the hell out of there if i were you.

comment Is it okay for holiday-makers to enter the United Kingdom with a single ticket?
Surely it'd be cheaper to get a return and just pay the administration charge to change the return flight than it would be to pay for two single tickets

comment What is the average & max temperature of an airplane cargo hold?
It's also worth noting that your luggage and chocolates will go to the hold via the baggage handling facility and then driven out to the plane. While the hold of the plane may not be that hot, you luggage could still get quite hot if it spends a few minutes sitting out on the tarmac

comment Date Limitation of Low Fares in Far East
You might want to have a look at star allience's asia airpass (staralliance.com/en/fares/airpasses/asia-airpass) or oneworld's Visit asia pass (oneworld.com/flights/single-continent-fares/visit-asia) You can get some pretty cheap flight deals with that.

comment Do I need a “chip” card in the Czech Republic?
I've never encountered that. Sometimes they will ask you for a separate form of ID though.

comment Should I book my train connections in advance in China?
Don't you need to list your accommodation for the entire trip when you apply for your Chinese visa. Every time I've gone to china i've had to put details about where I'm staying and for how long on the Visa application. Having your accommodation booked in advance makes this a whole lot easier. You can book cheap accommodation and then cancel it once your visa is approved, but what's the point. If you're booking accommodation you might as well book somewhere you actually want to stay.
