On Line Check-in

by Kazzykins

Hi
Leaving Manchester Airport for Hong Kong and then on to Sydney via Cathay Pacific mid-Aug. Has anyone used the on-line check in on the Net? Just a bit dubious about it at the mo! So used to the old tickets-through-post and check in at a desk malarky (so stuck in my ways!). I understand we get e-tickets this time as well. Ta Kaz

There is nothing to be worried about, just check in on line, print off the check in details and then take that with your bags to the drop off point (it will tell you where to go)
So easy and hassle free compared to standing in line for eternity.

Did it for a trip to New York an few weeks ago, and like you I was a bit apprehensive. But it worked a dream.

On the BA website it tells you that you can only check in on line 24 hours before. I was trying 24 hours 2 minutes before and it wouldn't let me, then exactly on the hour, I could check in, and view my seats, and cjange them if necessary, which I did. Once done I printed the tickets out and took them with me.

At the other end for the return, I had to find an internet cafe in New York which was surprisingly difficult, but I did the same again, but they had no printer. I just told the check in lady that i had no ticket and there was no problem.

Waltzed past the long queue for conventional check-ins. Do it-no problem.

Travel Tips for Manchester

Science and Industry Museum - its Free!

by sandysmith

Just as in Liverpool the museum here is now free. The science and industry museum is an amazing collection of exhibits - over 5 large units in the old train station complex on Liverpool Road in the Castlefield area. You could easily spend a whole day here or dip into different ssecions over several visits - all in one day would be museum overload I feel.
Special exhibitions - such as the Titantic exhibits do have an entrance fee payable though.
Check out the great museum website for opening times and whats on.

Seen here in the picture is the external view of part of the museum - the old victorian station buildings.

OOOh...

OOOh EErrr..CRIME!


re..accomodation..


RISKS...

like most of these areas, there is a problem with students being targeted for street robbery.


ADVICE: Stay in groups, don't be too overtly studenty (loud..'daddy bought me a new car type of stuff' is not advised :)

- soz stereotyping, but there are some very annoying loud students who seduced by new found independence, seem to really like feigning risque behaviour, loud swearing in polished voices grates on the local ears)and can get you singled out for a slap from a peeved scally:)


If you are asked the time at night, give it only if you are wearing a 'tweenies' watch, never root around in your bag for a phone or watch to give the time...rude perhaps, but its a precaution.



Dont get out your wallet/money at night...even for a street person who looks appealing, its just not a good idea.



Housing

make sure your flat/house is alarmed, it must be secure..do not accept anything less than secure, burglary is rife!


WOMEN
PLease ensure that any flat/shared house you are in has secure windows and doors, I would also suggest that women move into mixed sex houses.


DO NOT WALK TO THE SHOP AT NIGHT ALONE, unless you have absolutely no option and can't live without a pack of ciggs (hey ..been there, done that!)



KEEP CURTAINS CLOSED at night, ESPECIALLY IF YOUR ROOM IS DOWNSTAIRS


PUT A PADLOCK ON THE BACK GATE.
Dont' be too put off with my warnings, they are just that, it doesn't mean you are going to be a victim..its just to alert you..

The canals

by vec

I didn't expect to find all those canal views in a city like Manchester. So why don't take a trip to follow the water and see where you get, walking between old abandoned factory buildings, under the rail track and passing new fancy appartment blocks.

The canal is running through the south part of the city centre.

Central Library

by Chamsa

location: St Peter's Square, City Center
It's an interesting library building with a domed reading room on the upper floor. Like any other library it's also a great source of information, eg. a lot of travel guides and maps.

City Centre Shopping

by steventilly about Manchester City Centre

As well as the Arndale, Triangle. etc. there are a host of other shops to be found, mainly down Deansgate, Market Street, around Picadilly Gardens, Church Street, Oldham Street and the streets that link between these. You should be able to find almost anything here. There's M&S, Selfridges and Harvey Nicols all close to one another just off Cathedral Gardens and a huge Debenhams at the top of Market street.
