Sky lanterns are banned in Hawaii. In July 2012, Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie signed into law HB2113, a bill which imposed a total ban on aerial luminaries, including the ignition, possession, sale or use.

You cannot go to every shop as a visitor without getting a membership. check the website for the location where you want to go and look if the have a visitor (ビジター) package. Depending on the location, they might require you to speak Japanese. Since Gym facilities have a legal responsibility towards your health, they have to make sure that they explain ...

TL;DR: Winter is normal in Scandinavia, so life goes on normally. Many ski slopes and even some cross-country ski tracks are artificially lit, so they can be used in the dark. So are other winter sports activities like ice skating rinks. Many summer sports (tennis, swimming, etc) can also be played in heated & lit facilities all year around. ...

There is a lively LARP community in Edinburgh, and while some of the activities are more high fantasy LARPing, the city parks (Bruntsfield Links, Leith Links and the Meadows) tend to see battles ranging from 1-on-1 sword fights up to small armies. LARPEvents tends to list a lot of these as you get into Summer. While many events will have spare kit, I would ...

It is absolutely legal to shoot at a range as long as you either shoot their guns or bring your own legal firearm to the range provided your weapon meet range's restrictions. For example: Sandy Spring Shooting Range will rent you a firearm, similar is available from Shooters of Columbus. Normally the only thing that you need to have with you is a valid ...

If you go to Toho Uzumasa Eigamura in Kyoto, you can dress like a ninja along with other samurai, royalty, and townsperson variations. There are even European royalty (as imagined by shojo manga) variations. http://www.toei-eigamura.com/event/detail/53 After you get dressed up, they take your photo in the shop and then you can walk around the theme park, ...

The Nile post the Bujagali dam: Since the completion of the Bujagali dam the rafting has moved downstream. Bujagali Falls itself and a few surrounding rapids were lost to the reservoir but the rafts now start at Overtime and now continue all the way to the Hairy Lemon island. This is around 25kms. Previously this section was done as part of a two day trip....

There are none left after the ones in Kai Tak and Diamond Coast closed in Kong Kong. you will have to go to China or Macao. In Macao there is one the Cotai strip behind the golf court. I have however never been there and could not find an email/website either. There are two in Zuhai: The Zhuhai Golden Apple Karting Circuit (used by the HK GoCart club) and ...

There are a lot of possible day trips from Reykjavik to explore the surrounding area. If you only have the chance to do one I would suggest the Golden Circle, the tour will pick you up from your hotel and return you to it at the end of the day. During the day you will see geysir - the water spout that others are named after. Whilst geysir doesn't erupt ...

Driving to Lake Lucerne have a look and go on to reach the Grimsel Pass. I like doing this by car or motorbike. Another day trip would be Rhine Falls near Schaffhausen, which is the largest plain waterfall in Europe.

I did some "googling" and the only thing I cam up with was this blog: http://culturadoam.blogspot.com.br/ (Portuguese) This is the cultural agenda of the Amazonas region, as it seems, where the theatre is included. It seems that the "Festival Amazonas de Ópera" is currently on the theater. I talked to a friend that was there very recently and she confirmed ...

Natural, open areas are not a strong suit for Kuala Lumpur. Potential sites (both are near public transportation, neither have chin-up bars): ASEAN sculpture garden (not natural, not particularly big, no water, but the area around it is natural and shaded in places) Merdeka square (big, not natural, not shaded, no bodies of water). Here's a running route ...

If you are in Suwon, the very first thing you should do is to try suwon galbi. Suwon is one of the best places in South Korea to try galbi. Also, don't forget to visit Hwasong, a fortress which was built after imjin japanse invasion. There is also a famous amusement park in Korea near suwon called, 'everland'. Plan on spending about 2-3 days to look around ...

Well, my friends and I did our trip... it was a blast, but a ton of driving. We also planned too many events in such a short amount of time, so a lot of things seemed rushed. Either way, we were not disappointed. Not really sure how to give this as an answer, so I'll just give the major attractions we did. Loved Yale, which is a beautiful campus The ...

I rather hope not. Free fighting with real swords is a skill that takes time and training to master. No-one with any sense is going to let a pair of absolute beginners lay into each other after half an hour regardless of what armour they're wearing. A taster lesson at a club is probably the closest you're going to get, but to be honest you could probably ...

Considering you liked the climbing: Hochseilgarten/high rope course in Berlin I do not know this one personally, but every similar place in Germany I know has very simple courses you can even do with small kids to hard ones that will REALLY tire you out. Prices look ok, too :).

Tour E (page only in German) from Berliner Unterwelten e.V. might fit what you are looking for. It's probably only somewhat demanding, so if you aren't tired after, I guess you can climb the outside too.

Paragliding is possible around Lake Toba , there even was a big festival in 2013, however it seems the sport has not quite picked up as you report that companies used to fly around there, @Madlozoz reports in a comment frequently going there for weekends and never having seen them and the conclusion of the answer by @Nathan Shoesmith is the same. I found ...

As Έρικ Κωνσταντόπουλος, I doubt that Irrawaddy or Central region have bungee-jumping capabilities, but not based on an undated article that mentions "it may just be a matter of time". In my case I doubt anywhere in Myanmar yet offers bungee jumping on a regular basis. From the same site as that article (Myanmar Burma.com) the question is posed: ...

While Budapest has quite a few these certainly it didn't start there. It started in the Silicon Valley in 2006 but "Real Escape Games" became immensely popular in Japan and spread to Hong Kong, Singapore, China and Taiwan. The first one in Budapest opened in 2011 and began to really spread in 2012. For two people, it's very likely http://paraparkbudapest....

The Botanical Gardens actually fulfilled all my prerequisites except the outdoor gym. It's about a 25 minute walk straight to the west of Chinatown. If not actually natural it's certainly nicely landscaped and full of trees and plants. It has a lake in one section though not a huge one. It has quite a few paths running all around it and a small number of ...

One of the options would be joining fencing schools. Some of these schools do not require a tight schedule to be followed - instead they run on a drop-in basis, which means you can just show up. Checking some of the schools' websites showing that some of them offer free initial classes and cheap fees for classes after that. Please note, there might be other ...

Bubble football! It's not unique to Berlin, but it seems to be popular in Berlin and it fits the bill: it's physically demanding, absurdly fun (also, absurdly absurd), different, and probably suits someone called "soccerman" :-). Image search explains the idea better than I could: (also, there are lots of great videos, here's one). There are lots of ...

From the Salgado Filho International you can get on the "Trenssurb" ( a kind of underground ) to Mercado. Mercado is the name of the station of the Old Town of Porto Alegre. I believe this is the best option to do a small trip like that. Some option to visit there: Mercado Publico Casa de Cultura Mario Quintana Praça da Matriz Praça da Alfândega Paço ...

Another popular place to fly kite is at the Marina Barrage, there's a kite shop (http://www.barragecove.com.sg/) at the location but it might be more expensive that what you can get it from other kite shops outside of the Marina area. There's the one kite seller with a funny name http://www.goflykite.com/ at Chinatown that sort of make use of the pun in ...

As per hippietrail's comment: No I stayed there for almost one month and never found something. It's pretty labyrinthine though, so I could've still missed it. So we can presume a free outdoor gym is either non-existent or extremely hard to find. However there's a very cheap spa with a gym called "Gym Spa Rosy Da Lat". As per Tripadvisor reviews, the ...

I emailed the owner of this site: http://www.sumatra-paragliding.com/tours.html and asked him. The owner will give a tandem flight during the Painan , Langkisau Hill, Padang Beach , and lake maninjau tour. Cost for a tandem flight would be 850,000 IDR (approx USD$63). It wasn't clear from his email whether he would also give a tandem flight during the Toba ...

It seems that many of the kimono rental shops that cater to women also carry men's kimono. For example: Okamoto Kimono offers large selection of kimono including formal, long-sleeved or hakama for rental. Kyoto Kimono Rental and Yumeyakata also offer similar plans. There are other shops that may fit your needs better, I encourage you to search online. ...
