Q1: Do you like your vacation there?
Definitely...:)

Sure...it's so lovely and nice place to visit

Q3: How long was your trip?
5 days 4 nights

Q4: Which flight did you used?
Ryan air (Dublin- Stockholm Skavsta), (Oslo Trop-Dublin)

Q5: When did you went there? What would you recommend the perfect time to visit?
12-16 nov...actually, want to experience snowing time in scandinavian. unfortunately, we missed it.

Summer till early autumn should be nice for nature lovers. most of tourist attraction will open in that time especially boat tour or have trip outside of OSLO (Probably it start on May ). While, in peak time of winter, skiing is very exciting!

Q6: Where did you stay there? Are you recommending others to stay there as well? How much is the cost to stay there

Stockholm- micro hotel.
1 "120/90 - Lower bed 120 cm wide, Upper bed 90 cm wide": Room with bunk beds and shared bathroom.
price: 206.85SEK per person*

Oslo-oslo budget hotel.
4 bed private (double decker) and share bathroom
price: NOK200 per person*


*price fix at that time, may be it will change...

Q7: Any halal restaurant/grocerie s nearby?
Sweden- we can't find any halal shop but there have Muslim community. so it should have somewhere in secret places..hehehehe...
Oslo- there have halal shop in city centre...about 10 minutes by tram from hostel..

Groceries shop is everywhere and it is very easy to excess.


Q8: Interesting places you visited there? You can also state other places that you admire but you dont have enough time to go there. You can also state the chronology of you trip.

Subject: Oslo Pass

Instead visiting Oslo, try to visit the countryside of Norway by train. The scenery is breathtaking and beautiful. To avoid spending so much on the train ticket which is mostly expensive, I suggest you to take Eurail pass. you can travel all over the country unlimitedly with the pass.
