comment How to access Heathrow Terminal 3 duty free zone without a plane ticket?
You should be able to pick up a BA one-way ticket on a short haul flight from T3 for about £50 without too much trouble, maybe even a bit less if you get lucky. Might that be an option? (Do double check the terminals though - something like two thirds of the BA flights from Heathrow go from T5, so you need to ensure you pick a T3 destination!)

comment How to access Heathrow Terminal 3 duty free zone without a plane ticket?
I'm not sure that'll work - the inter-terminal buses are on the arrivals side, not departures side, so I don't think a departing passenger will be able to get to them. (They can't in T2 and T5, pretty sure they can't in T4 either but I'm not absolutely certain)

comment Hiking trails on Bainbridge Island to see the skyline of Seattle?
Your best bet for views of the Seattle skyline is probably from the ferry to/from the island.

Wire the money to a (reputable!) online currency broker, and deposit it in a Swedish bank account which you open on arrival?

comment Two legs on different tickets with Turkish Airlines - is baggage checked through
Most full-service airlines will, many LCCs (Low Cost Carriers) won't. I'd expect Turkish Airlines to check through when you show both sets of ticket details, but I'm not certain, so hopefully someone with experience can confirm

It depends on airline poilicies, so make it specific

comment Can I transfer from Heathrow T3 to T5 without a visa? I am a Philippine Passport holder
@DCTLib There are no airside hotels in Heathrow. The Sofitel in T5 is landside but attached to the terminal by a walkway, ditto the Hilton in T4.
