Recently ive been speaking to a girl from mexico I met on /soc/ and ive decided I want to visit her next year. I dont know anything about mexico and I dont speak any mexican spanish, any tips or experiences would be greatful.
pic kinda related; its me, wouldnt let me post without a picture
Hey anon, I visit Guadalajara almost every year. Admittedly, I don't really get around there too much because I go to another town like an hour away.
When it comes to the night life though try visiting Chapultepec. The area has a bunch of bars and it is very safe.
For a place to eat, I would recommend visiting Cenaduria Guille for traditional Jalisco food like pozole, sopes, flautas, etc.. I believe there's two locations. But the location that I've been to literally started out inside a house that has now been expanded upon. Tortas ahogadas are... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I'm travelling to the US for the first time this December.
I start from HEL in Finland, going trough ARL in Sweden and then I have a connecting flight in LAX.
I will be arriving at TomBradleyinternational terminal and my connecting flights are domestic, departing from "Terminal 5".
Now I have a few questions, what checkpoints do I have to go trough when arriving in LAX? do I Have to get my bag? go trough immigration? customs? and then change terminal and go trough it all, and check in my bag again? What will they ask for in... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1168492 >Now I have a few questions, what checkpoints do I have to go trough when arriving in LAX? do I Have to get my bag? Yep. Since LAX international is your first point of entry into the US, you'll be going through immigration/passport control and customs there. >go trough immigration? This happens first. There will probably be a specific line for ESTA people; look for it and get in it. >customs? This is typically... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1168597 Oh, and customs will also ask if you've been on a farm, and if you have any food, soil, or agricultural products (seeds, etc.). These are actually not customs questions but California Department of Agriculture questions, looking to keep out pests and invasive species.
They don't care about processed food, so you don't need to declare a chocolate bar or a bag of peanuts or crisps or something. They care about things like potted plants, clippings, shoots, etc.--they are looking out for things that... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Sure. Shanghai airport is boring. However, after arriving just go straight to immigration and just get your 3 day stamp. If you get stuck at the counters right next to immigration/customs, they will stamp your ticket, escort you upstairs, and you'll be stuck in the departing terminal for 10 hours. Not even sure if they finally opened the Starbucks.
>>1168464 You're gonna want to make sure you can even leave the airport. I know when I went I had to get a tourist visa. This dude >>1168469 might know more but I'd double check it.
Shanghai is cool. Def go instead of sitting in the airport. As far as Chinese cities go its by far the cleanest and was my favorite. I'd check out some of the tea gardens or botanical gardens that are nearby.
Help. It's my birthday today and until yesterday I always had some travel companions. Now there are only some ignorant Israelis in my hotel, who don't seem to be interested in anything but theirselves.
What do you do on your birthdays, when away from home? Today I have exactly nothing to do, besides answering half-hearted whatsapp messenges.
>>1168407 I celebrated my 21st on a field exercise while innamilitary. All I got was a 30 second pause, a water canteen toast, and a whispered "hip hip hooray" from my sarge and squad mates. Then we continued onwards toward our objective in freezing cold after zero sleep and 40 miles of hiking.
That remains one of my most memorable birthdays to this day. So make the best out of what you got and be happy that you're alive to see another revolution around the sun.

Does anyone know about the ESL teaching company Phoenix Group? I've recently got a job offer from them to go teach English in Taiwan. I cant seem to find a lot of information about them online, other than a facebook page, and ads on recruiting websites. How common are fraudulent companies in Taiwan.
I recently returned from a month long europe trip where I spent almost all my money. Now I'm back in Finland and I've been working for a few weeks and looking forward to leave again for a couple weeks to a place with good nightlife and nice people.
I only have about 600 euros to spend so I thought of going to Kiev and maybe Odessa, however I'm worried about the language barrier.

>>1168063 >How well is english generally spoken there? Very rare to find someone who speaks decent English. Not even young people speak English. No chance with anyone over the age of 30 unless they work daily with foreigners.
>What's the nightlife like? Will I find good parties during the week or only weekends? I happened to meet an English speaking tour guide from Tinder and we went bar hopping during a weekday in Lviv. It was pretty empty.

>>1168063 >I only have about 600 euros to spend so I thought of going to Kiev and maybe Odessa I spent two weeks in Lviv, Kiev, and Odessa eating out every day, taking trains between the cities, using Airbnb, bars, etc and only spent about 400€ on the entire trip and I wasn't even trying to budget. Everything is extremely cheap especially if you're coming from the west.

Buses look like pic related btw. To buy a ticket, you have to tap the bus driver on the shoulder, give him money, he thens puts the money on a carpet rug placed on the center console, gives you a paper ticket, and then you have to walk back and stamp the ticket on a clamp that hangs from the walls of the bus.
Same for trams and street cars. Long distance trains however are more reliable. You purchase a ticket at a station like everywhere else. Do remember to bring your passport when purchasing a ticket or else you will be refuses. I suggest taking the express trains between... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Pack a few pair of togs, hire a car and just drive in any direction, thank the bus driver and ask how everyone is doing. Follow these basic tips and you'll be fine. If you have any specific questions i'd be happy to answer.
I'm going to to visit Vladivostok in September, we will get by this famous train. I need some tips about alc/drugs, how to survive almost week in railway? Is it safe, is it worth? How about Vladivostok? Is it worth to stay few days?
A week in the train is really better than it sounds. I just travelled from Moscow to Beijing and the train became like a home to me. Grab some good books and get enough noodles and foods you can make with just adding boiling water. Look out the window and talk with other passangers, buy some cheap alc from the stops in the middle of Siberia. Have fun
>>1167837 >From what I've heard it sounds like it's a bit over-touristed Only Cusco, Nazca and Arequipa. But no matter how tourist allergic you are, you must not miss Cusco. I didn't go to Machu Picchu though, because I also have this allergy somewhat. There is a ton to see in and around Cusco to keep you busy for 10 days. Some attractions receive many tourists, others fewer. Nazca and Arequipa also have their reasons to merit a visit though. And it's not nearly as badly... Comment too long.

>>1167949 Sounds like Vietnam with the hotels. That's perfect, I prefer getting hotels and getting to know local girls instead of backpackers. Seems like the backpackers are generally very young in Peru anyways.
So is Peru the kind of country where you never really need advance reservations?
This is month 11 so I'm definitely tourism-allergic, and I want to improve my Spanish so I'd love to explore some random cities that see zero tourists.
If you are looking for less touristy places, I can recommend Choquequirao. It is like Machu Picchu but with less tourists and a bit smaller. You need to hike 1,5 days there. For more information have a look at wikitravel: http://wikitravel.org/en/Choquequirao
You know how in movies like Vacation, they'll get some cheap laughs by going to stupid tourist trap destinations like pic related? I actually love things like this. Recommend me some to go to. I don't care where in the United States they are, I'll find time for them if I'm ever in that area. (Currently in Alabama, if that helps with recommendations)
>>1167825 When I was a kid, I always wanted to stop here when we went by. My parents never wanted to though. And now, I never have any reason to go up/down I-95, so I don't have the chance to go anyway.
Hi I am looking for general advice on travel. I have never travelled but people in my spectrum club have started talking about travel and now I'm thinking of going. What are good places/tips for people with autism? I don't like to be touched and need my own room. I am can read all day about horses and horse armour. I do not like dogs. I also like anime but am not interested in Japan.
Anywhere. Just don't go to crowded tourist hotspots and don't get a shared dorm. If you're interested in military horses, maybe visit traditional towns in Spain or something? You probably won't see any wearing armour but there's a lot of museums about old war horses etc.
All I'll say is that some towns might have a lot of stray dogs running around.
So I want to visit England and this is the first time I've been on a plane since I was 7 I really have no idea what the process is with customs at the airport etc but people have me worried since I like to be prepared for any occasion -I'm taking 10k to live it up big -I have a friend there but it's a chick so I'm not sure if I should mention her since I don't want to be treated like some paki looking to move -I am a US citizen but Colombian so my skin isn't white Will I have any problem?

You may have to give proof of where you are staying and proof of finances, if there will be a problem it will be with the fact that you aren't coming over with an offer of employment, so they will be concerned that you are gonna come over and never leave again and stay illegally.
>treated like some paki looking to move
They are customs officials, paid a fair amount of money to make decisions based on facts and evidence with a very strict and fair set of guidelines.

I think in all cities, skip the wax museum. That's a safe bet. The rest? Enjoyable for history lovers, shoppers, and so forth. Whether you'd think skipping the Tower of London or seeing iconic bridges on the Thames, hey, it's about you. Whether you'd enjoy the food in Harrods or craft stalls in the markets, or drinks in the places they were invented, I dunno. Some of the things to do in London require money to splurge on nice well made items or some interest in... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I am being moved to Germany for work and was told to expect to stay for 4 years. The job is located in Krefeld.
I have been learning the German language for a little over a year without having had a conversation with a native speaker and passed the Goethe-Zertifikat B2 exam but I am not fully confident in my speaking abilities. Will trying to speak German make me look/sound like a retard instead of speaking English and hoping my coworkers English is better than my German?
Should I try to live close to work or reside in Düsseldorf?
>>1167460 It's a kind of boring, flat landscape with dark, gloomy architecture and a conservative catholic background. The common greeting for returnees is "Weisste schon wer tot is?" (You know who died?). The people are actually quite nice and friendly, though.
I'd try to live close to work if I were you, unless you have a massive hardon for formerly industrial urban environments. You can still be in Düsseldorf or Duisburg fast enough if you want to go there, but you'll spend less time... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1167460 I was born in Krefeld. It's a boring little town but people are friendly, the city is clean and during the last few years we got a lot of new food stores so it could be way worse. It's easy to get from Krefeld to lots of mayor cities though. (Düsseldorf 40 minutes, Cologne about an hour, Netherlands are really close)
I would advise againt living in Düsseldorf, it can be very expensive and you would probably end up traveling 2 hours daily.
>>1167405 Keep an open mind and you'll like it. I was born and raised there. I live on the east coast now but there isn't a day i don't miss being there. Its surprisingly clean for the most part. There are unlimited choices on restaurants and different foods to eat. You've probably had your share of good mexican food but in Houston, at least in my experience, most people are from Mexico City or more southern cities like Cuernavaca, Puebla, and Oaxaca. So the food is more in that style. Especially Duranguese... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1167478 Plenty of good choice for museums and art galleries near downtown. Little Asian is a 15 minute drive from downtown. Little Korea just north of I-10. Don't fear venturing into mexican neighborhoods. Like the previous poster said, most mexicans there are hard working, decent people. Hit up an ice house while you're there for cheap beer and usually a taco truck across the street. The Alley Theater and Theater Under the Stars is surprisingly good with plenty of broadway shows and musicals if you're into... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Going to Japan with a friend. We irresponsibly bought tickets for 35 days (January-February 2017) Doing the math we will probably have 150.000 yens for the two of us (more or less). Is it enough? Fuck hotels, our plan is to use Airbnb or cheap hostels. Fuck fancy restaurants we plan to cook for ourselves or something similar (instant noodles maybe). But we are kinda worried. In the best case we would like to go to disneyland or universal, we just don't know if 150.000 yens is enough for two people.
Also, we are not going to buy the JR pass... Is it possible to go... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1167398 It's definitely not enough. I'd check out lodging first. I'd say that the cheapest hostels are really those capsule kind but at the same time, you won't have the option to cook for yourself at that point. $1500 per month means that your average cost a day has to be less than 50 dollars combined and per person it'll be 25 dollars at most. If you plan to go to Disneyland, then you're spending at least 100 dollars there just for tickets and food.
Using cheap lodging or food won't... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Does anyone recognise this 'Paris Market'? I'm making this for my wife before we leave for our honeymoon in Paris, and I'd love to visit this site if possible. I know it's a long shot, but maybe one of our Parisian friends knows where this is...
My research with the manufacturer has led me nowhere :/
>>1167370 I'd say a month the sweet spot. Can't understand people who want to spend 6 months hostelling in SEA, it's pretty much an expensive shithole now that Americans have ruined it with their excessive tipping and the chinks with their peasant manners.
Jamaica. how dangerous is it really. friend is getting married at a resort there. I like to explore and go off the resorts. but I'm seeing a lot of conflicting opinions online. anyone been? I went to St Kitts and it was totally normal to walk or go anywhere. Pretty much no crime. I know jamaica is a lot different. just wondering.
>>1167225 There are a couple of areas around Kingston, and such, that you'd be wiser to avoid. Most of the Island is fine though. The resorts over-sell that if you set foot outside their limits you will fie, so that you will stay on the property and run up a bar bill.
I don't see a problem with selfie sticks. Yes, there are some asshole who use it for stupid shit, but selfie sticks are generally good for taking pictures of big groups without literally handing your phone to a stranger for a better chance of getting stolen
I've never purchased an international plane ticket before, so I'm quite nervous. I've researched the best time to book a flight to Japan and I've gotten conflicting answers (315 days before, 125 days before, etc). At the moment I have 250 days remaining until the date I'd like to fly. So, should I wait a few more months or book now? Am I too late?
Really stupid question. Will hotels [Thailand specifically] let non guests in if they are meeting with people who are staying there. e.g. can I go for a swim with friends at their hotels pool? Can I pay for a meal at their hotels restaurant.
>>1167151 In the DR, they don't let you in. While there, paid $10/guest to swim with me. Sorry, never been to Thailand, but resorts with exclusivity kind of want to control who is on the premises, as it increases guest safety. I'm sure if your guests are well behaved, well dressed, walked in with you, or something like that, you might be okay. But, if there have have every name of every guest, or it's all-inclusive, no money transactions only charges to rooms, you'll need to be on top of that. Your call whether... Comment too long.
