Where can I get a list of the most visited countries by Americans?

The U.S. Office of Travel & Tourism keeps some fairly accurate records on foreign travel. Last year's statistics:
Outbound by US Residents: http://tinet.ita.doc.gov/outreac…
Inbound to the US: http://tinet.ita.doc.gov/outreac…

Wikipedia also has information on top destinations globally under 'Tourism' (though this includes US and non-US inbound tourism for the countries listed).

How cheap would space travel need to be for consumers to pursue it?

The answer to that question varies from person to person. For some wealthy people, space travel is already cheap enough to pursue. For others, space travel will have to be extremely cheap (on the order of a few hundred dollars) if they are to pursue it.

The price at which a significant portion of the population would be willing to buy a ticket is hard to tell. To know that, one has to look at what the alternatives to space travel are, which depends on what space travel is used for. If suborbital flights are used as a way to travel from one place on the globe to another, the price only has to beat the time and financial cost of an equivalent flight. If space travel is used for entertainment–traveling to orbit and back for, say, sightseeing–the price has to compete with equivalent entertainment trips: a trip to Disney World, for instance.

What is the best time of year to visit New Zealand?

Octoberearly May is the best period to visit New Zealand. It’s the best time for hiking, climbing, boating, kayaking, surfing, rafting and stargazing. Moreover, Hobbiton at this time looks awesome! If you like strange food, you will have a chance to taste Huhu Beetle Grub. Rainy summer season between December and January is the best time to watch amazing waterfall Milford Sound.

What are all the things I should pack for a 3-week trip to Europe if I want to travel light?

Basically, you can travel for as long as you want on just a week's worth of clothes, if you don't mind spending time in a laudromat each week.

Here's how I did it:
1 rolling carry-on sized suitcase.
1 backpack
1 package of airtight packing bags.

You can get away with two pair of pants (I'd say one, but then you actually need something to wear at the laundry). Take a good pair of dark jeans (the skinnier fit the better if you want to fit in over there), and a lighter khaki-esque pair. A lot of tourists advocate cargo-style pants that zip off into shorts (*shudder*), but you can pack anything that wears and travels well.

Pack a weeks worth of socks and underwear, and a weeks worth of shirts (include one "dressier" shirt that can be brought out for clubbing or a nice restaurant), plus one extra as a safeguard. Darker colors work better in Europe because they don't scream "tourist."

For toiletries, travel sizes can last a surprisingly long time (especially if you're a guy), because you never need as much shampoo/shaving cream as you're used to in the states. Do go for safety razors and shaving cream as opposed to an electric razor. It's usually lighter, and you don't have to worry about adapters and converters.

Limit accessories to one belt and your watch (one pair of earrings if you wear them, but they make good memento purchases over there). Shoes are surprisingly important. If you like converse, they're a good choice. If you'll be in cities for most of the time, a really nice, sturdy, well-fitting, and reasonably fashionable pair of leather slip-ons are good choices too. If you'll be out hiking in the country, go with sneakers or athletic shoes.

Pack your clothes using airtight, volume-reducing packing bags. Keep one aside for your dirty clothes (particularly the socks and underwear), as it not only reduces volume, but keeps your bag from getting funky until you find a laundromat.

Make sure you take your camera, passport, and sketchpad (if you draw/sketch). Buy paperback books cheaply at used bookstores over there, and leave them behind once you're done.

Keep your backpack and carryon with you for the flight over. If you buy souvenirs for the flight back, buy a cheap tote bag or duffle, and check one piece of luggage on your flight home.

Be adventurous, and have fun!

To what extent does the success of Southwest Airlines have to do with not participating in price shopping sites?

While this practice has not been directly responsible for the success of the Southwest brand and company, it is a hallmark of their cost saving mentality. 
Rather than allocating a portion of their sales to a middle man (price shopping site) they reap the full benefit of each transaction.  Thus they can have an edge over companies that must account for the structural costs of flying airplanes as well as the price shopping fees or kickbacks of the middlemen in determining their pricing structures.

The downside to this is a potentially lower number of pageviews on available flights (since their flights are only offered in one location) and thus a potentially lower number of transactions, yet the better pricing should drive higher sales.

What neighborhood of Santiago should I stay in when visiting?

The top 6 neighborhoods to stay in Santiago are:

  1. Lastarria
  2. Providencia
  3. Historic Center
  4. Bellavista
  5. Dieciocho/Universitario
  6. Parque Bustamante

  1. Lastarria is filled with classic European architecture and could easily be mistaken for a French or Italian town with its beautiful, labyrinthine cobblestone streets. Bohemian and hip, this residential barrio is filled with great art museums, beautiful buildings, and hip cafes.
  2. Providencia is arguably the most tourist-friendly neighborhood in Santiago, with plenty of high-end restaurants and haute couture shopping. This neighborhood also hosts the majority of the commerce in Santiago, with plenty of skyscrapers and office buildings.
  3. This mainly commercial neighborhood is brimming with office towers, bustling cafes, and office workers. If there's anywhere that's considered 'downtown' Santiago, the Historic Center is it! Despite this, you'll find quiet nights to relax away from the bustling nightlife of Bellavista.
  4. Bellavista is a great neighborhood for nightlife, with plenty of bars and clubs. It's also home to the funicular which can take you to the top of Cerro San Cristobal for a beautiful 360 degree view of the city.
  5. Dieciocho and its surrounding areas are perfect for those who want to be close enough to the action, but still want peace and quiet at night. This mainly residential neighborhood used to be the home to the city's elites during the 19th century. This neighborhood is great to stay in for a taste of the historically decadent high life.
  6. The neighborhood around Parque Bustamante is home to many cafes and restaurants and is a quick walk to Lastarria, Bellavista, and Historic Center. This is a great place to stay if you want a little bit of nature close-by, but still be close to the action. During the summer months, outdoor festivals are abundant, along with active bike paths and a skatepark.

You can see a more thorough write up here. Our online guide lets you view each neighborhood by the most popular activities in each, and the hotels that are closest to the areas you want to stay in.

How can I find hotels in Beijing?

There is a wide range of hotels in Beijing for all budgets and tastes starting from your average hostel all the way to seven stars. In general, availability is quite good and there is never a problem finding a room somewhere in town. and that can be a problem!

The city is quite big ( and that's a giant understatement) with well documented traffic problems. When choosing a hotel, it's best to pick one with a central location close enough to your interests and a subway stop.

Budget wise, you can get some pretty decent rooms for well under USD100/night.  There are some nice boutique hotels like Opposite House and Hotel G that cost less than a 5 star for a much better service.

Hotels generally display a rate that is excessively high compared to their real acceptable rates so never ever walk into a hotel and ask for a room without getting 30 to 50% off their listed price. Sites like CTRIP and ELONG, both of which have a decent English interface, allow you to get the best rates available.
