A ticket for an adult will cost you 39€, and for a kid (4-11) - 34€. Children under 4 get in for free, as well as birthday kids – so you might want to schedule your visit accordingly… I recommend you bring with you water and lots of it – the prices inside the park tend to be very high.
The price for the lift and the ride is 9.5€ for adults and 8€ for children under 16. You can also buy a multi-ticket that will save you some money. Children under 8 have to ride with an adult. The address is Seilbahngesellschaft todtnau gmbh, Todtnau.
The official currency of Peru is the Peruivian Nuevo Sol (PEN), which has been traded at 2.5 to 2.8 per US dollar (US$) for the past two years. Naturally, these rates might change.
Of course, you can also cash traveler’s checks or use an international credit card in the local ATM's. It's recommended to ask for small bills (billetes pequeñas) when exchanging money - a 100 Sol bill is hard to change in some places.
You will usually get the best rates in casas de cambio (foreign-exchange bureaus), which are fast and have longer hours. It's best not to exchange money on the street - counterfeits tend to be somewhat of a problem in Peru. A lot of places also accept US dollars.
Student card! Guys, this can save you a lot of money. Even if you don't have one, arrange something. If you pass through Bangkok you can buy a fake one in the Kawasan st. with just pennies. If you arrive from Nepal you can also arrange something there. I traveled with a lady friend who showed her donor card... If you can invest in a card it's worth the money because of all of the student discounts you'll receive at every sight.
London is one of the most expensive cities in Europe, and cost of living is far higher than the rest of Britain. The main expense for any visitor will be accommodation’ which will cost you a minimum of £25 per night for a hostel dorm, up to at least £60 for a room of your own, and further to £120 for a room you will actually want to spend any time in. Try booking in advance, as most hotels will offer reductions on the room prices if you’re staying for more than a few days.
Currency: The pound sterling (£) is British currency, and it is also known as Great British Pound, or GBP. £1 is divided into 100 pence (singular: penny). Notes are £5, £10, £20 and £50. Coins are 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 pence; £1 and £2.
Everyday prices: A single trip in the London tube (zone 1) will cost you 4.5£, but you can cut the cost down to 2.1£ if you pay with an Oyster card - a plastic smartcard which replaces paper tickets – instead of cash. You can also purchase a travelcard for 7 days (30.4£ for zone 1 & 2), a month (116.8£) or a full year (1,216£). A single bus ride will cost you 2.4£ (1.4£ with an oyster card), and a weekly pass is 19.6£. A decent sandwich will cost you around £3, and a good meal for two with wine is usually around £80-£100 mark, and up to £150 and more for one of the city’s leading restaurants. You’ll be pleased to know that all the state-funded museums are free, so you can spend a lot of time in some of the world’s best exhibition spaces and galleries for absolutely nothing (although it will be nice to make a donation to help keep them free, with £3 as a suggested amount). Entry fee for some of the other sights are a bit more expensive, ranging for 10£ to 20£ per person. Entertainment, likewise, does not come cheap, with cinema tickets that can cross the £10 threshold, and the big-name gigs ranging from around £20 upto £150 for a superstar at Wembley or Earl’s Court. Clubbing can also set you back, with an entry fee of 20£ on a Saturday. But don’t be alarmed: some of the best clubs in town are free or very cheap. Flyers with discounted entry rates are usually available all over the West End in music and fashion stores. A beer in a local bar can cost you from 2.5£ to 5£, but usually around 3.5£ for a good draft.
Tipping: Tipping is appreciated in London, but it’s usually not customary. Many restaurants add a ‘discretionary’ service charge to the bill, but in places that don’t you are expected to leave a tip of 10% -15% (unless the service was unsatisfactory). Cab drivers expect to be tipped about 10% of the fare. Bartenders do not expect to be tipped for pouring beer or mixing cocktails, but they often return change in a little metal dish, expecting some of the coins to stay on it. Well, it’s you’re call.
Despite the city’s wealth and evergrowing population it is certainly very budget friendly. You an easily find basic but decent rooms for 25 USD/night,and getting around is simple enough with metro, skyline or the frequent bus service. Worst come to worst, should you ever get lost simply ask as Malaysians are always happy to help. And here’s a small secret you’ll probably be happy to learn: it is free to visit the Petronas towers, and ride the elevator up to floor 41 where the connecting bridge is. Simply make sure you get there before 11.30 when all the days passes are given away and you’ll be rewarded with this view overlooking Kuala Lumpur from one of the most famous buildings in the world…without having spent a cent!
