comment How long does it take to cross the border at Iguazu Falls?
I assume you are taking public buses. I crossed that border several times and it was never very busy. You usually get off the bus to go into immigration and then have to wait for the next one. Locals don't have to get off and the bus goes straight through, you have to tell the driver that you want to get off. I think there were buses every 20min. I once managed to get on the same bus, because immigration was quick. I can't remember how long it took to the airport, its on the road to the falls, maybe 20min from the border.

comment How to find budget accommodation in Iran?
@jpatokal - limit the search to Hostel/Guesthouse or even Budget hotel, then you'll get an empty list. I was more talking about the books. When I compared a recent India LP with an older edition, most budget places have been removed.

comment Travelling to Romania for 4 days by Schengen visa issued by Germany?
Romania is not part of the Schengen area, even though it is in the EU. So you should check what the visa requirements for your nationality are for Romania.

When entering Singapore by boat, train or bus, you get a 15 day free "visa", if you fly in, you get 30 days.
