which was nice and excellent location but looking for something a bit cheaper this time
i stayed in "le seven" was quite ok, but wouldnt stay there again!

i saw someone recommend "mama shelter or marma shelter" seems very cool, i would go there, prices seem fine too!

You prefer a certain area of Paris? City is kind of huge so best to look in whatever part of town you want to stay.

I stayed there at xmas and thought it was great - cool rooms, great restaurant and a bargain (€99 per night inc breakfast) and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would distance wise, about 15 mins on the metro (which was an8 min walk) or a €15 taxi to the centre.

A few pics of the hotel…

Want to go away in September for 3/4 days, going to France for a week at the end of June so would rather go somewhere with lots to do rather than to relax. Going with a 9 month old, so I'm at a complete loss about even where to start. Anyone got any suggestions for a decent city to go to with a young child, was considering Barcelona?

Drinks in KL look cheaper to buy the bottle than as an individual drink. £6 for a g&t the bottle is only £50??

Depends where you're going davol. In the north its going to be a bit cold. In the South its going start getting real hot around the end of this month. Probably the best time to go is around nowish to may down south

Vietnam airlines got a deal on at £420 return, which seems very Jawdropping! Anyone flown international with them?

Assuming you mean the Algarve. It's nice, good countryside for cycling/walking etc, lots of nice little towns as you go inland + up mountains and shit. V. nice beaches, best surf will be on the point with the west coast and on the west coast itself. Lots of bars in the tourist towns and on busy beaches. Only thing is, coast is RAMMED during the summer, seriously too busy. Late summer might be good though, depending how late you're talking (wikipedia reckons 450k live there and there are more than a million people knocking about in summer Laughing out loud )

Has anyone toured India via the rail network? If so, how was it?
