As I posted in another thread, I came back from there a few days ago.. It's a big, beautiful, pedestrian-accessible city filled with tourists.
>Love me some antiquities and the architecture. You're literally in the right place. It's concentrated there.

Alright /trv/, I'm thinking Hong Kong. Thinking of going next month, and staying for two weeks.
I have a few questions that I would like to ask.
>recommendations for accommodations? I'm traveling on a budget, but I really want to try and avoid the Chungking Mansions if at all possible. Money is an issue, but I'm not outright destitute (if I were, I wouldn't be traveling). Small rooms are okay, as I'll probably be outside most of the time anyway.

didnt you make this exact same thread a week ago? anyways, as someone who lvied there for 5 years ill try and help out a bit
>accommodations check airbnb first and foremost, doesnt matter where you stay since you'll be able to take the worlds best train anywhere very quickly. airbnbs run around 45 USD a night, if you want hostels or cheaper you'll have to do the research yourself. everything is fine besides from CKM

>>1179085 To be honest, I actually kind of wanted more insight on hotels, but your explanation makes sense. I've read some reviews for many different hotels, and they all have an almost even mix of good and bad reviews. Hell, even the Chungking Mansion hotels managed to get good reviews that contrasted starkly with the highly concerning reviews. I'll try to do more research myself.

So ive been wanting to go to South Korea for about 6 months and i have the money now. I found a hotel and i found an airline and everything. Im just scared to pull the trigger and actually book everything and still go when the time comes. So im a 19 year old male and i would be going alone to Seoul. I think i would have fun but im worried that if i bought the ticket now i might not really want to go when the time comes. I think i would still want to go but im getting cold feet about the whole thing. I think it would be a great life experience to travel alone in such a far away... Comment too long.

>>1173363 youre right. i think no matter what i would have a good time. even if i cant get around great just going around the core of the city could be fun. im told a lot of people speak english in seoul, at least enough to help tourists
I hate these threads, so it is with great sorrow that I'm making this.
I'm heading to Berlin in a couple of weeks, looking to score whilst there. I hear Görlitzer park is the place to go. Does anyAnon have an experience of this? Besides the usual street deal do's and don't with reguard a to scoring here?
>>1187857 After some thought, I decided I was split between Haleakala NP on Maui or Yellowstone. Haleakala wins, not sure why though. The view during sunset is unlike anything other place I had been. Pic related
>>1187844 Overland is pretty easy Tashkent is easy driving distance to Osh. Internal trains in Uzbekistan and buses/ mini buses in Kyrgyzstan, taxis to and from borders. I can personally recommend Samarkand in Uzbekistan and Ala-Kul in Kyrgyzstan as places that are worth checking out plenty of other places to see as well of course. Assuming you are a Westerner Kyrgyzstan visa is free but the Uzbek one is a pain in the butt and you need a letter of invitation from a travel agent which can be arranged online from a place like...

Hey /b/ I desperately need a flight from the Sacramento Area to Nepal, but I don't have very much money to spend. Does anyone know a cheap way to fly there? I don't care if it's one way, or comfortable, or even if it's legal or not. Also since I'm desperate for suggestions, Kik me werewolfe7oh7 if you have any ideas you won't post here. Please help me out /b/
Does anyone here have experience hitchhiking? id like to hitchhike from my hometown in Western Canada to Nova Scotia this spring, but im concerned about safety. Im a 5'2'' female, and my hometown is in the centre of the highway of tears. a stretch of highway where theres been dozens of missing women reported over the past few years. Should I be concerned about this? or should I say fuck it and do it anyways?
>>1187568 you could hitchhike most of the way, but ride greyhound down to Kamloops so you can get on the transcanada in civilization to head east
take advantage of the internet instead of just standing on the side of the road. all of the classified sites like craigslist, used_.ca and kijiji have rideshare boards, there's some sites like poparide.com that have people doing the major intercity routes
in some places there's public transit that runs between cities, I can ride a bctransit bus 100km for 2.50 between two cities, takes a lot of research to peace together many of those
I'm a guy who wouldn't feel comfortable hitchhiking in rural bc
Headed to Vegas tomorrow with some friends for a birthday.
What I'm most interested is the strip clubs. I plan to bring around ~$600. Whats the most fun I could have? Where should I go?
Is touching allowed in strip clubs? How about sucking nipples? I went to a strip club in Toronto sububrbs last year where they allowed all that shit, but it was a far cry from Vegas and may have been way more lax.
I live a few hours away and have been to Vegas many times.
In my opinion strip clubs are the ultimate waste of money a man could ever invest in, no matter where you are. They’re made for men who have no game and who are easily suckered. The thought of slipping a $10 bill, let alone $600, into the g-string of a second-level whore is beyond me.
But you’re an adult with your own money, so onward..
Pretty much all strip clubs will offer the same thing. Some in Vegas are 18 years and over, while other are 21 and over. The difference is some serve alcohol... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1187363 To me the privilege of getting to see other places enriches my life. It makes me feel educated about the world and it almost feels like an accomplishment that I've managed to see so much of it. Seeing how people live in places different from where I do has changed my perspective on what's important in my own life. I'm more appreciative of how I have it better than a lot of folks in the world. I also know who out there has it better than I do in some ways, which changed a lot of my political views, because...

I need suggestions. I am trying to figure out where I can travel for 2 weeks in January. I am an American that speaks English and some Spanish, living in Germany. I want to go somewhere that isn't the cliche type of tourist destination like london, Paris or Las vegas. I've been to czech, poland, sweden, switzerland, ireland, guam, japan, thailand, and south Korea (not looking to do a repeat). I want to go somewhere that will have a cheap ass living cost, where I can drink, possibly mingle with locals, and potentially bang local girls. I'm trying to stay around... Comment too long.

>>1187322 >>1187321 Just saw that You have already been to Thailand, but the rest of the list remains valid. I do hope you don't consider a "repeat" as a universally bad thing though. Taveling to the same country but a different region can create vastly different experiences. We all travel for our own reasons though. To each his own.
>>1187324 Lol, don't get me wrong. I have a limited amount of time here in Europe so I'd prefer not to repeat. I'd go back to Thailand, but I feel like I dodged a bullet..I fucked 2 whores knowingly and a third that turned out to be a whore....who bled all over the place, a random 4th, and almost a lady boy....but came back clean. I feel like if I went back I'd go more extreme. So it almost feels risky. I'd also go back to Ireland because they like to party and there are lots of hot girls that like Americans....

A couple friends and I are planning a trip to Pripyat - the ghost town in Ukraine that was evacuated after the explosion of the Chernobyl NPP in 1986. Due to the half-lives of the isotopes in the area, large parts of the town are safe. There are guides that offer tours on very strict and tested waypoints for people who are interested, and they take you around the town and offer some back story to the area.

>>1187163 Really depends on where you go. Mostly pretty friendly everywhere, I can't think of anywhere with particularly nasty people. Although places like Eugene and Klamath Falls get a lot of bad rap for the druggies. Eastern Oregon is more conservative, and it's of course the more chaparral/desert side of Oregon. Mostly middle- upper class in places like Bend, Redmond, Sisters. Lots of little old western style buildings, it's pretty cute. Tons of really neat hiking areas with caves and shit. Expect TONS of...

I'm from BR hue and I'll be backpacking through Europe from December to March with a couple of friends! I've never done it before, so I'm literally having multiple feelings ranging from anxiety to orgasmic-on-the-road-happiness.
First of all, this polish film I watched, "All These Sleepless Nights" got me inspired as hell. All the nightlife and living and spontanous scenes got me going. And now I'm thirsty for this.
So I have some questions:
1. What books should I take? (Walden and The Catcher in The Rye is already in my bag) 2.What albums/bands should I take in my iPod? 3.What parties should I go? I'd really like to know the true nightlife from every single place I visit. 4.What drugs should I try, in which places they are trustable? Because why not trip while you trip 5.Company? Let's backpack together! Or maybe we could hang out wherever city I'm visiting.
I'll be visiting France, Germany, Sweden, Netherlands, Hungary, Czech Republic, Austria and maybe Poland.
Is it a bad idea to go to Egypt in winter? I want to see most, if not all the major historic stuff. I want to go at winter break because in summer I wouldn't be able to bear Egypt's heat, also I am 19 right now and before I turn 20 I can get Visa on arrival from Egypt.
Would any place be closed at winter? (probably in the middle of january, but can be anything from the start of january to middle of february). Would it be to wet/snowy to travel between cities? What should I expect?
Also, would going to Petra and then going to Egypt through the Red... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Absolutely. I went to Egypt in February and the weather was really nice. Rarely too hot. The only hot stretch was a mini bus to Abu Simbel through the desert with no AC. Contrary to what you may think too, anywhere well south of Cairo, the Nile is very clean and you can actually drink the water right from the river. Take a felucca trip if you can. I recommend only a few days in Cairo, gtfo as quick as you can. I know nothing about traveling from Jordan.
>>1187334 how long does it take to get to luxor and from there to abu simbel from cairo? i am pondering whether going all that way would be worth it, considering i'd probably have to return to cairo to get bback home. also, is it really worth to see those places? I do want to see the historic stuff (that's why i go), but if it's just one temple, I can save myself the hassle.
alright /trv/ i'm a total travel noob so I figured I'd ask the internet for some help.
the gf and i are looking to end 2016 or start 2017 with an all inclusive vacation. that being said we can't really decide where to go.
We are leaning towards Mexico because she's never been. Keep in mind we don't want to do much other than to drink our asses off and eat. We don't party so it doesn't have to have great night life. I've been to Cancun and kind of hated it so she doesn't seem to want to visit that side.

I would recommend Punta Cana. Personally I have been to hotel Occidental Punta Cana, which is cool because there's a night club attached to the resort, and all the people from other resorts go there (there's only like 2-3 night clubs in Punta Cana). Food and drinks are great, rooms are decent, beach is superb. Anyway you can check prices as they're pretty straight-forward; more luxurious = more expensive. The only thing that sucks about Punta Cana is you won't want to leave the hotel. As soon as you step out of the gates and venture into the city,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1186894 Why would it be an easy language if it's completely unrelated? I'm Slavic and Russian is still pretty incomprehensible to me, I'd have easy time learning its grammar and pronunciation isn't a problem, but still would have to learn vocab.
Never traveled before and thinking about going to Hawaii on a whim sometime this December or January, is it worth it if only for about 3-4 days and on a budget of a couple hundred dollars tops (not including airfare)? My plans, or lack thereof, basically consist of just showing up, pitching camp at some site, and visiting whatever beaches or trails that're within walking distance. Needless to say, open to any and all suggestions or advice.
OP, it will help if you tell us which Hawaiian island you will stay in. I've been to the main island and Maui.
Yes, several hundred dollars (not including airfare) will be enough for three to four days, as long as you really count your pennies. Everything is imported there so it's an expensive place.
Why are you going for only three or four days? I'd highly recommend going longer. Stay in a hostel. The wildlife and beaches are beautiful. Also, Hawaii is not for partying and getting... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

I'll be in sydney for a week in december (10th to 18th) and I wonder if there is some cool places or events where I can meet some other LGBTQ+ people. I'd love to go to some underground clubs if you know some.

If youre a craft beer drinker Toppling Goliath (the second or arguably top brewery in the world) is in Iowa, and they are releasing KBBS (#2 on beer advocates best 250 beers in the world) in January. You have to win a lottery to be able to buy your 1 bottle limit. It costs like 20ish USD a bottle and it sells aftermarket for like 1200-1600 USD per bottle. But like I said, IF you are a craft beer drinker its like a pilgrimage to Mecca.

I have a credit with Westjet of $600. I would like to go somewhere to do a lot of diving (snorkeling/scuba). Everyone I know goes to Mexico or Cuba, so I would like to avoid those and go somewhere a little less travelled. I don't care for night life or shopping. I would like somewhere that is good for photography as well as the diving. Where would you suggest?
I don't speak any other language than English unfortunately and I'm female, so somewhere safe and less chance of me getting zika.

I've been diving in New Caledonia. It's good so long as you don't dive in touristy locations. Duck Island in Noumea is a place you shouldn't bother paying for SCUBA gear, snorkelling is good enough. Diving around the light house is good if you're looking to see fish. Lot of cool stuff like Barracuda and Sharks.
There are wrecks you can see if you go further north because of the islands involvement in the Pacific campaign.
>>1186688 I have been happy diving in - Fort Lauderdale FL - Key Largo FL - Bocas del Toro, Panama. Rather safe and as far as I know, Zika free. I have heard great things about - Roatan, Honduras. May not be safe as a lone female, and Zika. - Thailand - Cocos Island liveabord, Costa Rica - El Gouna, Egypt. According to an Egyptian friend of mine it's a very safe area (basically a resort city), and it looks very cheap because people are scared of Egypt right now. Like, $75 a night at a 4-star hotel cheap.
