They have cheap flights from ATL for Songkran. Sub $800. Probably even cheaper from EWR, where I'd transfer. Question is are they any good? Safe? I have never flown with them or recall seein them mentioned here.
I'm visiting Portugal for a week with my GF, flying an out of Lisbon, in February.
What are some must-see or must-do things besides Portugal? We won't be able to rent a car so we'll have to take buses/trains/blablacar or hitchhike. We're open to suggestions but nature/parks/beatiful towns are on the top of our list
I loved the Algarve. Lagos, ponta di pidade, Praia da rocha, fort sagres.. Beautiful environment! Monchique was a nice mountain village near there. We also loved the Santa Bernarda ship, took a day trip on it with swimming, sailing, caves, bbq on the beach... Great stuff!
>>1072720 Pic related is the Santa Bernarda. It leaves from Portimao.
We were there in high summer though. No idea how Feb is.
From Lagos you can also book dolphin watching trips. We loved that!
If you're into history there's an old Moorish fort in Silvas as well.
Great views from Cabo de st. Vicente as well. It's the most Western point of the European mainland. I think. It has a little lighthouse. And just before the lighthouse there's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Sup /trv/, how does one up and away to the other end of the globe and start over? I'm talking about traveling to the Maldives and get a job in a beach bar, or move to Hong Kong and become an English teacher, that kind of stuff.
Save just enough money for the flight and a couple weeks of food and a roof. You'll figure that shit out when you're there.
Don't be like the Germans with waiting to have kids; Waiting until they're 40 and out of 3 different universities with a "stable job" to finally decide now is the right time, only then to realize your newborn child is now autistic because of your gnarly ass old man sperm.
Pic related, even if it is a little cringy by the standards of this mongolian beekeeper's image board.
If you're not on a budget staying at the Raffles is amazing. If it is out of the price range, at least check out the elephant bar. The city has some beautiful avenues, recommend taking a Tuk Tuk everywhere. It's the best way to absorb the Khmer architecture whilst traveling around town. Seeing the killing fields was heavy but good to see.
Hi /trv/, I am in Europe for 3 months and I want to visit as many natural wonders as possible anywhere in Europe (preferably more western Europe). What are great spots for walks, hikes, and just spectacular views?
The French/Swiss/Austrian alps have some pretty beautiful scenery, but I've not been there since I was a child so I can't really recommend any places in particular. If you're there right now it's ski season, so things like hiking aren't so easy. Also, it's worth bearing in mind that these places are expensive - they're the holiday destination of choice for rich Western Europeans.
If you are able to go a bit further east, I'd definitely recommend Bled and Bohinj in Slovenia, and Plitvice and Krka in Croatia.
>>1072172 Corsica is pretty great. High mountains from which you can see up to the see on the top, high altitude lakes, cristal clear water with pink cliffs... The Alps of course, but the Pyrenees must not be understimated either That's mostly mountains tho I could list some great canyons in France too.
>>1072114 Are you working there or just traveling? If working then you could get one through employer even if it comes out of your pay. Otherwise yeah, insurance is pricey. Still better to pay $800 than face $100k fees if something horrible happens.
There's nothing to be worried about in France, the UK, or Italy. While the city of Paris has had two attacks in the past year, that doesn't really make the country of France more dangerous (and arguably Paris is only slightly more dangerous seeing as 32 million people travel there every year and just over 100 were killed in both attacks). France is a big country, and if you are that worried about violence, you can experience some of the best of France without ever stepping foot in Paris
In general, every country has had its share of terrorist violence. If you... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
My girlfriend and I are travelling through Thailand for 12 days. Sadly I had more vacation time on me, so she returns home for work and I stay for 12 more days.
Staying in Thailand is a no no. I want to check out Vietnam at the very least.
Are 12 days too little to see some of Bangkok, then head to 'nam and add one more destination (like cambodia or laos?).
What are some major things I should see? I"m a sucker for Vietnam War history, and War History in general, cars, food (mostly cooking) and visiting ruins/temples is something... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1071993 2 days in BKK 2-3 Days in Siem Reap 4 days in HCM 2 days of travel, 1 between BKK and SR and another between SR and HCM
I find BKK boring as hell, go see the Palace (read about the scams), floating markets, temple of dawn / Wat Arun. You can get on a bus or take the train at 5am to SR or even fly, I feel Angkor Wat is worth breaking up over 3 days. I have never been to HCM, I traveled Hanoi and the north.
Alternative. See BKK, fly to Hanoi or HCM and spent 10 days in Vietnam if the war is... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1071999 The war interest me. A lot. But Angkor looks so awe inspiring I cant miss it.
We fly into Phuket and spend the night at the Old Town, cause we arrive late. We get the fuck out of that shithole the next day, and spend a couple of days on the lesser shithole that is Phi Phi, doing some beach stuff and relaxing -if chavs let us- and then head back two the mainland, stopping along the way to BKK.
>>1071974 A lot of places are now trying to get you to pay for this shit. Are you undergrad or grad? Looking for research opportunities or? Look for PHD candidates who need helpers. I had the chance to help out an amphibian research project in Thailand, but it conflicted with my student teaching.
Post all things related to amusement parks, theme parks, or things that can be found in them ITT.
I'm a bit of an expert in this area and I create elaborate spreadsheets on the topic. Attached is an example of one that lists what I believe are the best amusement places in the USA and Canada using data sets. I know many things about parks in other countries, too, so you can ask questions on this subject and I will answer you.
#1 on the list also happens to be the most-visited theme park complex on Earth: Walt Disney World. Even if you separated the four parks that make it up on the list, Magic Kingdom (the main park), would still be in the Top 10.
Did you happen to go to any of the "Holiday in the Park" days at a Six Flags. I have a season pass, but my local park is Great Adventure and I thought it would be too cold and not worth it with like half the park closed
