Trip Type:
Backpacking / gap year Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Take a friend, I was quite lonely with long term guests on the hostel & no way to really meet other travellers as there are no organised excursions.

Liked: Small Nordic town

Disliked: a very quiet city with no attempt to gather or encourage travellers. No walking tours. there are bike tours however these are quite costly & require quite a few days.

Travel Type:
With friends / other travellers

Trip Type:
City break Partying / nightlife Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: shopping, eat in a ship-restaurant

Liked: quite a "big" city compared to other places so there's more life in the streets. Really good place to go shopping, but the department store is build a bit confusing. Loved walking along the river, nice weather would definitely have been a plus

Disliked: We were out on a friday night... if you look for packed clubs - go out on saturday.

Trip Type:
City break Sightseeing & culture

Customer Travel Tip: Food is expensive i must say, but like i will always do everytime i travel and have little money to spend....always think about popping to their stores wherever and spend reasonably on food stuff which will last you for the rest of your stay, otherwise, eating out and buying ready made food e.g resturants, fast food wil drain you faster than you least expect

Liked: friendly people, quite city, unlike london..lol I must commend the staffs i met in the bank when my travel money card was blocked from the UK. They took it upon themselves to make sure everything is sorted out with courtesy and respect as if i was there customer...that really did it for me.. "amazing"

Disliked: not too many options, shopping wise..
