The best place for a wild party. Open every day all night and very close to my other favourite place the Feuermelder, where you can watch football before starting the party. And on Sunday there is a very beautiful flea market around the corner. It's fantastic and budget-friendly.

We stayed in a newly refurbished studio apartment in the centre of the medieval Korcula town.
The location was perfect, just around the corner of the main piazza and cathedral.
The studio itself was very comfortable having its own private bathroom. The whole house was spotless.
The woman who owns and runs the place speaks good English and was very helpful and keen to give us all the information we needed to make our stay in Korcula pleasant.
So if you are planning to stay in Korcula, we would recommend this place.

After many years of driving myself and the rest of the gang down to the alps for a week of on and off piste action, I decided to fly into Geneva for a weekend, so i booked a flight with flybe and I booked a transfer with transfer intelligence.
I couldn't believe the travel costs for the weekend were about half the costs of the normal drive out there. Great value for money, budget flights and budget transfers.
This is the oddly shaped mountain that dominates the Vilcabamba skyline – as usual in the Andes, it is said to resemble the face of an Inca lying down for a snooze. It’s no rest cure to climb it, though, but worth the scramble for the amazing view down the incredibly green valley to the village below.
Entrance: Off the Avenue of Eternal Youth, just outside the village.
Time: 3-4 hours round trip.
Best backpacking hostel in town run by friendly owners. Clean rooms, fab showers, quick internet connection, great ambiance. Very laid back. Lazy sofas, bar and pool table too! Lots of activity taking place in the evening. There is a buzz and great place to meet other travellers and locals.
If it's daytime, and you are travelling within the medina or the New Town, insist the meter (le compteur) is on. It starts at about 1 dirham 60. If they say it's broken, tell them to stop and get out. There are lots of other taxis.
The only ones you negotiate with are the Grand taxis. Petit taxis only take three people. Taxis can be difficult to get during rush hours, 8 - 9.30, 12 - 2 (that’s when they change over drivers too) and 5 - 6.30.
At night, they charge 50% more. Rides in the medina are generally about six dirhams, from the New Town to the medina generally about ten dirhams.
Make sure you have small change.
Getting a taxi from the medina to the airport on the meter is about 25 dirhams, but getting one from the airport to the medina is negotiable. Published tarif is about 60 dirhams, but you may have to pay 100, depending on number of people and amount of luggage and time of day.
After that, how much you tip is up to you.
The cheapest accommodation on the strip, only a short bus ride or walk away from downtown. Friendly people, perfect for those on a tight budget.

Climb up to the Nonnberg Nunnery and follow the path upwards to the Museum der Moderne and from there onwards to the Humboldt Terrace viewpoint. There are a number of viewpoints on the way giving fantastic views of the city (as seen in the Sound of Music). It's also a beautiful woodland walk. Carry on down the hill towards the Augustiner Abbey for a stein of beer.

Lift tickets for Silver Mountain are very reasonably priced, and price reductions are given to seniors, and students. Also if you keep an eye open many of the gas (petrol) stations have 2 for 1 vouchers available. Also if the snow isn't to your liking you can return your ticket for a 100% refund! So there is no fear of going up the gondola only to find poor skiing conditions (very very rare).
Stay at the no-frills Motel 6 in the Salt Lake City suburb of Murray just off Interstate 15 south of the airport for under $40 per night, with an easy, 30-minute drive up Little Cottonwood Canyon to Alta/Snowbird, or a 45-minute drive up Big Cottonwood Canyon to Brighton and Solitude.
Utah is a ski bum's Paradise, and Salt Lake City International Airport is the Pearly Gates. Nowhere in the world is the skiing better for a comparable low price. World-class areas such as Alta (lift tickets still less than $45), Snowbird, Brighton, Solitude, and the entire Canyons-Park City-Deer Valley resort complex can be reached from the Salt Lake City International Airport in less than two-hours driving time, with Alta/Snowbird a mere 45 minutes away.
One of the finest foods in the world. You are unlikely to eat another bread product as delicious as a freshly baked Kettleman's bagel - available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
On Bank St, at the South end of 'the Glebe'.
Buffet-style restaurant serving range of traditional Moroccan dishes. High quality, excellent choice, elegant dining room. In the evenings, you pay £10 and get a 3-course buffet meal, with as many repeat tastings as you like. Excellent for those that want to try a range of Moroccan foods.
In front of the Koutoubia, opposite the Place de Foucault.
Right in the historic centre of this beautiful town, this attractive and friendly hostel with white-washed walls, terracotta tiles and al fresco dining is a great way to kick start your travels into one of the most culturally rich and beautiful parts of Mexico. Particularly good for travellers on a budget, as it is fantastic value for money.
This hotel is just across the road from Copacabana beach near the Old Fort (worth a look). We were there in April 2006 and the hotel cost USD $60 a night B&B for the two of us. We had a sea view, very nice room with a large double bed, TV and mini bar and en-suite bathroom. The room was excellent, the staff really friendly and the buffet breakfast was superb. A real gem of a place and very reasonable.
As an Aussie student, just want to say, make sure you know how much your drink costs before you order. Most places are good (Slovak pub, bar across from charlie's) but in other bars, the bar tenders will take what you give them and walk off, it may not be much but it adds up. In just over two drinks in BAROK CIRCUS i paid sk100 (euro3) too much. It's not much, but honesty goes a long way. I took another traveller's tip and asked for a bill, but got some random bill for sk 430. So, just pay with whatever it says on the menu in exact change if possible, it's a pain in the ass but will save you over the night.
You can buy a special ticket "Snow & Rail" which gives a big reduction on the cost of the separate tickets - buy it at the railway ticket desk, and exchange the coupon at the resort for the ski pass. Contactless ski passes also available (even online).
In a quiet canalside location a stone's throw from the Anne Frank Museum, De Prins is a lively English pub-style eatery with a limited number of tables and a warm, friendly atmosphere on a cold winter's night. The menu is limited but the food is top quality and perfectly prepared. The fondue is well up to Swiss standards and is a perfect protection against Amsterdam's cold winds. As in many restaurants in this enlightened city, smokers are still welcomed, so if you are not addicted to tobacco you may be better elsewhere.
Plancius, in the former Jewish quarter next door to the excellent Dutch Resistance Museum, is a busy modern restaurant popular with locals. We lunched on superb home-made soup and lighter-than-air omlettes, and had swift and friendly service.
De Prins: Prinsengracht 124, Amsterdam 1015 AE
Public Transport - Tram: 6, 13, 14, or 17 to Westermarkt and a short walk.
