Posted by annarchynyc on 16/12/2015 at 15:27

I am travelling to Cambodia in the next month. I will have an iPhone and an iPad that I will need to charge. I don't want to carry unnecessary weight or waste money on buying a voltage converter (I already have the adapter plugs) if I don't need it. Anyone? Thank you in advance. ...

Are you planning on going anywhere for your next vacation?

Posted by duke on 16/12/2015 at 00:50

Trip is one of the important ingredients in life. They are our lifeline to refill, a chance to step away from everyday life and connect with different people in our life, a time to relax, to be the real us or indeed to be whoever we want to be. Even after the end of trip, holidays can leave us with a suitcase of life-long happy memories. On our trips, we wanted to be grouped with people who wecan laugh and share memories together. We could have saved countlesshours if we had a catered itinerar ...

Size of tablet used on your travel

Posted by mikal83 on 13/5/2015 at 10:50

We have read the laptop v tablet questions and have decided that taking a laptop is not our option due to size and weight....a tablet will suffice. What size is yours? Are you happy with that size or would have thought a bigger/smaller one would have been better. We will be using ours for just storing pix from a camera, maybe a few videos but mainly for email/social media/booking flights/hotels etc. ...

Cheap shopping at Taiwan/Taipei airport?

Posted by Billabong on 12/9/2009 at 20:58

Hi there, I am having an 2-hour stop over at Taipei airport on my flight to Vietnam. Since in Europe there's a lot of "made in Taiwan" for electronic stuff, i wondered if it is worth to wait buying for example Digital-Camera equipment, I-Pod stuff etc. Has anyone any experience, is there a chance to get some bargains on electronic stuff? Thanks, ...

Thoughts on this travel site idea

Posted by marktrip on 10/10/2013 at 13:33

Hi Guys, Recently I was travelling across the world (and had no time to really plan out my trips) so I told myself after I got back, what if I made a site that helped automatically build itineraries, allowed friends to collaborate, allowed you to share the trip publicly for critiquing and basically just having your entire trip more organized. I figure this could be more useful for a business traveller, but I think if we put all sorts of all factors into play like taking Open hours into consid ...

Switch your travel searching to DuckDuckGo

Posted by somtam2000 on 22/9/2014 at 04:13

Hi all, If you're bored/frustrated/annoyed/going postal with searching for something travel related and just getting back dozens of junky spam listings from TripAdvisor on Google or Bing, then I suggest you give DuckDuckGo a try. I finally spat the dummy last week and switched and so far I've found them to be pretty great. *) For starters, while TripAdvisor is still often there, they're there just once rather than 18 out of 20 times. *) Less ads *) None of the Google Travel and Google Maps ru ...

Please advice with calling card provider

Posted by MikeSanto on 19/1/2014 at 02:49

Hi all! Next month we are planning to visit Thailand with kids. Case in point is: I will requre a full-time access telephon connection, because one of my emploee's projects is on the run and my help could be needed any moment. Last year we had a similar problem when I was on a tourist trip to France, but than it was solved with calling cards, purchased here: http://www.comfi.com/calling-cards/France.

Hi everyone, Apologies if this has been covered elsewhere but after a search round the forums I have struggled to find a definitive answer.

android apps for itinerary building?

Posted by fernwood on 8/9/2013 at 10:38

Hi all I've just realized that it would be really helpful to have an app to help me visualize and fill in my itinerary. I'm doing research, creating bookmarks, pasting into documents, putting post-its into books,,,it's all good, but it's unwieldy. What I'd like to be able to do is to put all the information onto a map somehow (I love maps!). Then when I found myself in the middle of Laos with a day to spare, I could have a look to see if I'd discovered anything interesting in the area. (or talk ...

take extra battery pack/second battery

Posted by neonama on 19/10/2013 at 01:38

Once, my friend drove me to a near city. At first I was playing games on my S3, then soon after I fell asleep with the phone on! When we arrived about 3 hrs later, my fully charged phone had only few juice left. My friend already left before I noticed my mistake, and I needed the GPS to get to my destination. I had to spend extra time to find a electrical outlet for recharging. The first thing I returned home was got myself an extra backup battery. After a few research and comparing I picked on ...

iphone or ipad?

Posted by asiatravel2012 on 27/3/2012 at 12:31

Hi Im travelling to SEA for seven months and hoping to cover north thai, laos, vietnam, cambodia, south thai, malaysia and singapore. I'm confused as to which would be the best means of technology. I would use it mainly for facebook, skype video call, online bookings and a little for ebooks and music. I currently dont have either but am looking to purchase one or the other. For the internet i would turn off data roaming and just use the wifi. I like the fact with the iphone i could buy a local ...

Boost your WiFi connection range!

Posted by busylizzy on 31/10/2013 at 01:40

Having just done the rounds in Burma, I found several times that whilst hotels are now offering WiFi, it's sometimes only available in the lobby area. Or, if you're on the top floor of a tall, skinny hotel, the WiFi just doesn't quite reach the room. I've been using a WiFi 'booster' with really good success. Essentially if I can't pick up a signal with my ultrabook, I plug this in and all of a sudden I've got a very good connection. Of course, your internet speed is only as good as their broa ...
