The shortest commercial flight I’ve experienced was Honolulu to Maui which lasted 28 minutes. Have you experienced a shorter commercial flight (that is in regular service)?

[Source]. Maaaaaybe. Or just about the same length. I go once in a while to Labuan, off the coast of Borneo.

So from Hong Kong, it's either HKG>KUL, KUL>BKI, BKI>LBU, 3 … Continue reading The shortest commercial flight I’ve experienced was Honolulu to Maui which lasted 28 minutes.

What happens if I’m hiking long-distance and cross an unmarked international border with a valid visa?

[Source]. Another of those assumptions made out of thin air... A "valid" visa is not an unconditional right to enter a country. It's a piece of paper (or electrons) that says you're eligible to go all the way up to... the immigrations counters. The immigration officer is the one who'll make the decision.

How do I get a long-term visa from an Asian country (such as Philippines, Thailand, Vietnam etc.) as a freelancer (earning money via internet having multiple small revenues)?

[Source]. There are a few countries that give one-year visas (or longer), although this depends on your citizenship. They may or may not be the easiest countries to deal with, though.

How does one get into global travel retail in the wine and spirits industry?

[Source]. Let's start with the two answers on Quora, by total idiotic asshats, who HAD to open their traps. I’m not sure I have ever heard of that.

What is the smallest international airport you’ve walked into?

[Source]. Probably Luang Namtha [LXG]. An airport in northern Laos, not far from the border with China, it has, AFAIK, one flight per day, to and from Vientiane. This flight is sometimes cancelled or merged with the thrice-weekly flight from Muang Xay [ODY]. I know I have photos, but can't find them now. The reason … Continue reading What is the smallest international airport you’ve walked into?
