    Where is the best fish and chips in Cairns?

    Thanks for the tip Richard! We ended up (based on some local advice from the guys at prodive) going to Sheridon Gourmet Seafood. We had Mackeral and Moreton Bay Bugs and it was a feast! Address is here - it's a short walk from the central shopping area http://maps.google.com.au/maps?f=q&source=s_q&hl=en&geocode=&q=gourmet+seafood+cairns&sll=-25.335448,135.745076&sspn=61.931842,78.134766&ie=UTF8&hq=gourmet+seafood&hnear=Cairns+Queensland&z=15&iwloc=A over 8 years ago

    best way to travel from San Fransico to Monteray

    I've driven from San Fran to Monteray and it's a great drive down the coast road through Santa Cruz. You can do it in half a day. over 8 years ago

    do speedboats still operate on the mekong in Laos?

    I was there at the start of 2009 and saw some speedboats, so at least up until then they were still operating. Not sure about currently. over 8 years ago

    Convert single-entry Vietnam visa to mutiple entry?

    I don't think you can upgrade your visa. I made the same mistake once going to Ho Chi Minh City to Angkor Wat on a single use visa, thinking it was a multi-use. The hotel in Angkor Wat had a service ($20 - $40 USD) which couriered our passports to Phnom Penh overnight, got a visa from the embassy, and returned the passport back to the hotel. Being without your passport for a few days isn't ideal, but it was all we could do since we flew back to Vietnam a few days later. Either way, you'll have to go to a Vietnamese embassy. over 8 years ago

    Is the power supply in the USA the same voltage as Australia

    Hi Lynda - they are different plugs and voltage. USA is 110V and Australia is 230V. The wall sockets are different, so you'll need an adapter, and be sure that any device you plug in is rated for 110V. For example, Apple laptop adapters work for both 110V and 230V - it should say the ratings on any device you use. over 8 years ago

    My son wants to do a beginners PADI diving course in the Barrier Reef whilst out in Aus. Which Cairns company do I use?

    Try out prodive cairns - I'm going on a reef dive next week with them, and I'm sure they could help out and recommend something for you. Their website is http://www.prodivecairns.com/ Cheers, Ian over 8 years ago

    Best things to see and do in Wanaka, New Zealand?

    Thanks for the replies Karen and Kirstin! I'm going for 5 days, so hopefully can squeeze in a few days of skiing plus a day or two of sight-seeing and adventuring! Is there anything off the beaten path that isn't well known or in the guide books that I should see? over 8 years ago
