comment How to get to/from Washington Dulles International Airport?
If I was waiting to 2018, I'd now be waiting to 2020! ;)

comment What's the cheapest way to get from Melbourne's two airports to Southern Cross Station?
I dispute that having two instead of one would be too broad. The provided examples indicate it applies if there are "too many possible answers" (not IMO, as it would only be a maximum of two) or "good answers would be too long for this format" (not IMO, would only require a couple of paragraphs).

Edited to indicate I'm not just interested in public transport from the airport, unlike the linked question. I also note that my question is about both Avalon and Tullamarine.

comment Bubble Wrap/Zip Lock - Harry Potter Wands
@Soumya are you trying to avoid getting them damaged, avoid having your bags opened to examine them, avoid having them stolen, or something else? It's not clear what you're aiming to prevent.

comment What is the best way to transport a large bike pack and two suitcases from Heathrow to Pinner?
@JoErNanO That's what triggered my initial thought of answering this question but I couldn't find a number/website that gave that option... probably due to failure of searching rather than their non-existence though.

Do you mean generally or in this specific scenario? I don't know how inviting your Uber driver down to the pub to watch the game will go down, that's all... At least with regards to the bikes, private taxis are often less spacious (in the traditional sense) so may have more issues fitting the bikes in.

comment Attractions & stopping points for young kids when driving between Dubbo and Canberra
Yeah, unfortunately most of the places are more known for food and wine than anything that might appeal to the young ones.

Most of that is in "Bogan Shire", just to tickle your fancy even more...

comment Is it possible to get a multiple entry visa for Cambodia before arrival?
I'm going to have to change airlines in Siem Reap Airport (Singapore to Vietnam) and they're on separate tickets as well, so I'm 99% sure I can't check my bags through.

Negative voter: I'm open to suggestions as to what to improve?

comment Where in Chengdu can we see Sanxingdui artifacts, besides the museum in Guanghan?
I'd err against trusting Google Maps in this case. The address for the "Sanxingdui Art Museum" seems to be lifted from this article, which actually describes the same Sanxingdui Museum, and the website Google shows for it is a Chinese design company. It looks like your friend might have to head out of town.

comment Does Singapore Airlines offer free multi-day stopovers?
The latter is what I'm interested in. I haven't been able to confirm that they do actually allow a break of more than one day.

According to multiple sources, yes.

comment Can one take wooden toys to Australia?
I don't have first hand experience there, but my understanding is that since you probably won't be present when that passes through quarantine they're more likely to jump straight to #2 and #3 when they see the wooden items on the bill of goods.

comment Do I not need to supply passport details when booking through websites?
Eventually I got access working to the airline's site and entered my details in there. I don't believe I needed to, as I was never prompted for it, but I figured why potentially cause myself future hassle. My airline was Thai Airways BTW.

comment Reliable Mastercard ATMs in Antigua?
Write that up as an answer to help anyone else looking for it, as they might miss it in a comment. :) Doubly so since it appears none of the rest of us have recent knowledge.

comment Iquitos or Puerto Maldonado, for jungle adventures in Peru?
Monkey anecdote: by the last day of my stay everyone in my tour group had seen monkeys except for me. We stayed in a jungle lodge about an hour or so from Puerto Maldonado and apparently they'd been in trees around the lodge, even entering the dining/lounge area... but always while I wasn't there. I finally saw some at 6 am the day we were leaving because my travelling companion got me up (knowing I still hadn't seen them) after she'd been awoken by them. If not for that, I would've managed to not see any monkeys... but been the only member of our dozen to not do so.

comment Driving out of Sydney on Hume Highway (Canberra/Melbourne) before Christmas Eve
Funnily enough I'm going to have a very similar situation this year (driving to Melbourne on the way to Tassie), so thanks for updating with your own experience! :)

comment Are there any tour group comparison websites?
Unfortunately I did not. However I haven't looked in quite a while, so there might have been new developments in this area.
