    Where should we stay in NYC for 6 nights? Must be central though affordable.

    It's hard to recommend something based on how much "affordable" varies from person to person. When I was last in NYC, I stayed at AKA Central http://www.hotelaka.com/locations/central_park/default.aspx It was a bit under $200 a night, modern and extremely central. Based on that you should be able to do something cheaper if you don't care about the modern bit. Assuming you're going there in the Summer, the "ideal" hotel would essentially be a small air conditioned room, with a bed and a shower. When I was there in the summer, the hotel room was just used to sleep, and cool down and wash off the sweat before venturing out again into the heat. over 6 years ago

    Does Fiji have the best drinking water, and if so why?

    FIJI water (the bottled brand) is sourced from an Aquifer. I drank the stuff religiously when I was over there, it seemed to taste pretty good, though it also could have been the heat. over 6 years ago

    where can i go skiing in tasmania?

    Ben Lomond is your best chance at skiing in Tasmania the moment. That said, the conditions look pretty dismal. Getting any decent snow in Tasmania growing up was always a long shot. Current snow report is at: http://ski.com.au/reports/australia/tas/benlomond/index.html The big ben lift is closed, which isn't a good sign ... sorry to be the bearer of bad news. over 6 years ago

    Is the water drinkable from the tap in Fiji?

    Recently dragged 12x1.5L bottles around various Islands in Fiji in various bags. Phil has it covered, for me it really comes down to the question ... Given that buying and dragging around bottled water isn't all that hard, is it worth risking (even if the chance is remote) getting sick on a trip you've paid for and have been looking forward to? If you're stepping outside of the big mainland resorts, better to be safe than sorry. over 6 years ago

    Where is a nice place to stay in Nadi, Fiji for a one night layover? Suggestions on things to do for a day and nice dinner spot.

    Just spent my leading and trailing night (flights to Sydney are awkward to line up) from my trip to Fiji in the Denerau Sofitel. It was decent, with the amount of holidaying Australians it felt closer to being in the Gold Coast than it did to being in Fiji, but it served it's purpose. Comfortable with a decent attached restaurant. over 6 years ago

    Is one week enough for travelling in New York?

    I only spent around a week in NY when I was there and had a great time. If you're tight on time then there's plenty you can see and cover with only a week in New York. You don't have to do everything a city has to offer to have a good time, I'm a foodie so I largely focused on the food side of things when I was there :) over 6 years ago

    Best spots to see fireworks for New Years Eve in Sydney?

    I turned up to Balls Head Reserve at around 11:30 on NYE 10->11. There were plenty of people but it wasn't at all cramped. It had an awesome view of 2 sets of fireworks, one of those being the bridge. I thought it was definitely a sweet spot in terms of great view and not being too cramped with people. I'll probably do the same spot next year if I'm around at the time. over 6 years ago

    where is a good sandwich place

    "via Abercrombie" on Abercrombie lane (an alley) probably has made the best sandwiches that I've had in Sydney so far. The only warning is that they're dangerously large. Even for a big eater they're generally 2 meals worth. Otherwise I've had a hard time finding good sandwich spots in the CBD. almost 7 years ago
