comment Overstayed UK student visa in the past. Can I now visit the UK again?
I removed the "trusted traveller" tag since there is no mention of it in the actual question to see how it could possibly have any relevance.

comment Will nights be cold along the route from Perth to Melbourne at the end of November?
Indeed it was! We had three chilly nights in our tent across the Nullarbor and nearby areas in the south. Cheapo sleeping bags with a couple of extra layers of clothes was enough though. Still colder than I expected before asking the question here!

@Calchas: Really? It is already in Sydney, but I guess that's a bit further north even if less deserty.

@Pacerier: Not in the vehicles, just in the stations they arrive at and depart from.

comment Can I read my GMail while traveling in China?
During my last trip, three months in mid-to-late 2015, I couldn't access GMail without VPN. I could however access Google Maps, which was a nice surprise.

Surprisingly, [google.com.cn/maps](google.com.cn/maps) now works. I used it a lot without VPN during my three months in China ending about six weeks ago.

I don't want famous brands such as Nokia or Sony or Apple. I'd be surprised if they have fake low-end notebook computers like Asus, Lenovo, Samsung.

comment Is it easier for a westerner to obtain a Chinese tourist visa in Kazakhstan or Kyrgyzstan?
It's somewhere between double and triple the price to obtain a Chinese visa from a consulate in Australia compared to a consulate in Southeast Asia though. But for people who plan their entire trip in advance and have lots of money that is probably usually the best advice.

comment What's the longest scheduled public bus ride in the world?
Do none of the buses between Perth and Melbourne or Sydney utilize the same bus throughout without switching?

comment Is there something like a “frequent tourist” visa in China
In my experience you might not get a multiple entry visa in Korea and may have to apply from your home country. This may not be the case if Korea has given you some kind of resident status though.

comment Booking a flight with a luggage limit via Adioso / Expedia
The only fees I ended up having to pay that I could not find in the fees and charges page were for payment. It seemed every payment method incurred a cost of varying price. Visa cost more than PayPal for instance.

comment Booking a flight with a luggage limit via Adioso / Expedia
OK has the info! RM 89. I could make the question more specific or you could make a generic answer saying look for the fees and charge page of the airline. Or we could do an answer wiki where people can add such pages for each airline?

I had been looking at an airasia page that listed that kind of stuff but missing the bit I needed, and not the same page so let me dig into it!

But I also wonder if there's a generic way to find know the fees or maybe a website that lists them all or something like that.

In this case it's AirAsia but I am a bit paranoid that prices start going up when a flight starts getting attention (-:

comment Is a Cambodian visa on arrival available at the Chong Sa Ngam / Anlong Veng crossing from Thailand?
In any case I'll be leaving Thailand at the obscure border crossing. I'll be entering at a major crossing.
