is this forum dying? because I don't see anyone replying other than this topic.
can I get some help because I'm planning to go with my wife to Europe. She wants to go to Switzerland and Paris. I would love to go to other countries as well but we are bringing our 1year5months baby with us. so can I get advise on what other beautiful city in Europe that we must visit other than Switzerland and Paris? Thank You. We are planning for free and easy, don't wanna go with travel agent due to hectic schedule that they have.

Maybe London? English speaking, less stressful, plenty of things to see, free and easy.

Amsterdam, Rotterdam, Antwerp, Brussels..

I would love to say coastal areas but with a kid can be challenging ~

What do you think of a budget of 3k can do in Europe or travel around. Looking for a budget trip but still be able to explore and eat some good food once in a while. Would want to save some money by having some cheaper accoms or like cook ourselves. Any advice?

Wah that's way above budget. But thanks for sharing. Currently, flight tickets cost about 1k to and fro. Traveling around europe should be cheap too because of the EU pass. Maybe if i try Airbnb would be much cheaper than a hotel. $1k for flight, $700 for accommodations, maybe $300/400 for the train passes. Then budget 1k to eat and sight see which works around $70+ to eat and play per day. Anyone thinks this is possible?

Honestly depends on where you wna go. Eastern Europe confirm enough esp if you not scared being “nearer” to war zone.

I caught a public holiday, all prices massively inflated - London to Paris train instead of 79 euro become 144-244
If you go major cities (Lon Paris Amsterdam etc) $700 can probably get you 3-4n airbnb in a private room w shared toilet at best.
Again, europe is huge. A meal in swizzle, a meal in London, a meal in Croatia - all different.
Kiv your sgd $700 accoms is 480 euros at 1.5.

Kiv your expenses 1kSGD is under 700 euros.
Assuming 7 days, 50 euros a pax a day.
Enough for 3 simple meals, public transport. No fancy meals no attractions.
Again, depends on where you go. Number of days etc.

Might as well stretch your $$ in Aussie now at 0.9x

Also if you go for a short trip eg 7 days 2-3 countries. Doubt you wna spend 1-2hours return journey from your Airbnb to city centre. And also hence ruling out many cheaper accoms.
3k? Confirm doable. See how you wna travel only

Bro you can go Telegram join those VTL travel groups. Its more active there
how to? I mean is there any link that I can click to join?

I already set my travel itinerary for 2 weeks to go to Paris(2d), Barcelona, Interlaken(swiss), and Milan (4 days)
going with my wife and 1yr6mths toddler by then on August.

I have 1 most important questions on how to travel around in all those cities that I'll be staying for 4 days.
I mean should I buy like barcelona pass/card or turbopass?
if in Switzerland should I buy their swiss pass? full/half fare?
and how about in Milan?
appreciate if anyone can briefly explain to me in details. Thanks so much!

That's true, sit train from granada to Barcelona sit until butt pain.
But compare to flying I still prefer the train, no need go airport early etc. Just that always need hope the main luggage rack got space. If nt need carry and put on top.
