Ah, depends on the region? I think I saw those but the website is not clear at all.

comment What is a good area to head to in Lisbon's “Parque Florestal de Monsanto”?
What are you looking for? "Parque florestal de Monsanto" is a green area and it's considered the city lung. It has several very nice areas, and a few restaurants spreaded but I would hardly consider it a tourist destination. Unless you want to chill out in a close by place. You might want to visit Sintra and "Serra de Sintra" if you're looking for nature, history and picturesque places. It's 40 min. aways from Lisbon by train.

comment How should I tip if the food is good but the service from the waiter/waitress is terrible in the USA?
Thanks for the cultural tips :) - I thoought it was more than just cultural phenomen since I heard some restaurant invoices even specify the tip you have to give.

Ins't the tip a % between 15 and 20? Can you actually leave less money if you feel the service is bad? Or you leave the least within the range?

comment In which European countries can I use disposable barbecues in summer?
@O.R.Mapper I understand your question now. I removed that because its actually not relevant to the question. In any case these BBQ are easier to use than with real wood. They are also a bit easier to light up because they bring a soaked paper sheet (with some fuel) under the coal that it very effective. Of course you can do the same in a normal BBQ but these come prepared and they are fast to setup.

comment Portuguese cusine in Lisbon
Are you only interested in main dishes or also in sweets? (Portuguese cuisine is as broad as unknown. There are literally hundreds of completely different dishes - although a small country each region has something in particular - is there something you want to focus on?)

@Tor-EinarJarnbjo - I am not so worried in park per park rules or city per city rules, but more in country wide rules. City or park rules will probably be displayed on the park entrance.

It's not clear to me what clarification do you need?

comment Why is the Lonely Planet Mongolian phrasebook so small?
Although I agreee with you in the general view that publishers want to reduce size and clients want to maximize, I don't think this holds true for traveling books. At least I want the smallest book possible with the largest amount of information possible. It's up to the content and design team to acomplish it :)

yes but if bought you have an invoice. If its a company doing the job they have docs as well.

comment Lisbon: Getting from the airport to city center
@DavidPugh I can't discuss theoretical situations. I don't know what surcharges those are. There are a few, like for luggage and some night services. If you feel you're being scammed ask for the invoice and optionally call the police. Keep the license plate and the driver license nr. You can send the complain to imtt.pt. Those things can happen anywhere and authorities are keeping an eye. No one is interested in that kind of thing.

comment Lisbon: Getting from the airport to city center
@DavidPugh I wouldn't say taxi drivers are worse than in any other city. They usually don't like when it's a short drive, and the airport in Lisbon is really close to the center. They often wait hours for a client. A transport to the center does not compensate. Some (and this is a minority) choose more "scenic route". An effort to improve that has been done with several surprise inspections.

comment Why does Airbnb show restricted search results when logged-in?
One possible explanation is that you first did a broad search, not taking into account dates and the second time you searched based on specific dates. In that case, if an apartment/room is taken, it does not display on the search.

that's good information. I assume you don't know if the printed has to be printed again?!

@feklee I was traveling with someone without checked in luggage and asked to add an extra piece of luggage. I circumvented the problem.

comment What is the cheapest and fastest way of traveling between Liege and Paris with deterministic travelling times?
@200_success if you can quantify how much it's worth every extra hour of delay to arrive to Paris you can certainly get one optimized result relating cost/trip duration. But probably your phrasing is better.
