Lol where the fuck are you from? I mean the risk is high if you stay in some of the worst parts of the city like the east side but it's not nearly as bad as people say.

You will not be able to do a month in LA unless you room with someone. Besides the room situation, I think the rest is doable in a cheaper neighborhood with access to a metro line.

I'm going to Sarajevo, Dubrovnik, Split and Zagreb in 2 weeks and am looking for recommendations on things to do.

I've looked through wikivoyage pages for the aformentioned cities, so I'm looking for things perhaps a bit off the beaten path. Cool hikes, neat areas of town, day trips, good bars, delicious eats, etc.

Also what are the absolute "must see" attractions in these cities?

Thanks buds!

Pic attached is from Mostar, definitely worth a visit!

Personally I hated Dubrovnik as it is an overpriced tourist trap designed for selfie taking japs.

Split and Zagreb are a bit better. Sarajevo is interesting, check out the various museums. In Mostar you can take a tour to the caves nearby which is supposed to be cool.

Sarajevo:
Eat cevapi and burek. Drink rakia. Check out the bobsled track and Sarajevo tunnel. Check out Zlatna Ribica Bar. Make friends and go to the hookah bars in Bascarsjia. Drink Bosnian (Turkish) coffee. If you smoke, Drina Special Filters are great.

Mostar:
If the train is still running, take the morning one from Sarajevo to Mostar. It's a scenic three hour ride. Go up the sniper tower. Head out of town to Kravice Falls.

Zagreb:
Tough one because it's not an obvious place to visit. Last time I was there, I drank with some friends in front...

Hey /trv/, I've always dreamed about doing a Journey to the East. I live in Switzerland and I would often fantasize about traveling (via a road trip, a hitchhiking trip, or a bicycle trip) to the East going either over Former Yugoslavia or over Austria-Hungary-Romania to Istanbul. I figured Istanbul to be my first main goal though I've fantasized to continue up to Japan.

I have travel experience but up until now I've always had a disposable amount of money while traveling. This would be the first time with no money.

You won't have the tiniest problems travelling through former Yugo countries or Romania/Bulgaria. Balkans are chill and relaxed. I wouldn't recommend Turkey, though. Not right now, anyway.

I am going to Prague sometime in late august and my plan is to spend about a week there and then head to the nearby cities. Mostly by bus or other cheap transport.
The problem is that I've got no idea where to head from there. I've thought of heading east to Poland or head south towards Wien and maybe Ljublana. Nevertheless I know basicly nothing about these cities.

Time is very flexible. I'd be traveling as long as i feel like but I'm thinking of something like 3 weeks which of 1 week in Prague and then head back home to Finland.

No experience with Hostel One, but there is a hostel in Holešovice, about 100m from the Metro station which caught my eye. I'm Czech, but I keep an eye out for this sort of stuff. I can find the name, if you want.

Prague one is a seriously historical place, in daytime, getting lost in the small streets around the Staroměstská station is seriously a good thing. The Staroměstská is a stone's throw away from the Faculty of Arts, nice building, also, if you can, head to Hany Bany. Weed is about 200CZK...

San Lorenzo or Pigneto or San Giovanni or Trieste or Nomentana?

And the average score in the cafe?

What sort of things interest you? The Vatican museum is amazing, consider paying extra for a night tour, it is WAY less crowded and much more enjoyable. If it interests you at all, Hadrian's "villa" is a short trip out of town and I enjoyed it very much -- if you are not into Roman history, though, I guess it would just be another ruin... but if you know what you are looking at, it is well worth a visit.

You very much could, depending on the time and country.

Smuggling and selling shit like a medieval merchant was very profitable and fairly common.

However, for obvious reasons I had huge culture shock going to China but I also experienced it significantly in America even though we share a language. Mainly because everyone I met there seemed so alien and convinced of themselves and their country, they weren't self-deprecating at all.

I'm going to China soon and have barely any idea about their culture and how it relates to the West. How should I behave generally while interacting with Chinese people?

Should I try to adopt their customs, going full /a/ and bowing and shit, or show them the freedom stance with hands on my hips?

Do they like when people try to emulate their culture, or should I just admit to being a baka gaijin and doing Western stuff since I'm white?

What's your guys opinions on prostitution? I'm in Vienna where it's legal and a brothel down the street from my hotel, should I do it?

Do you want to do it?

IMO it's not worth it and it's much simpler and cheaper to have a wank. I did it a couple of times to indulge a fetish and lick a girl but it was awkward in most of the encounters

P.s. sex threads get deleted here

>What's your guys opinions on prostitution?
I favor legalization, mostly because I think it's safer for the women (and men) who sell sex for a living. I don't think it's inherently immoral, either for providers or consumers.

I also don't like paid sex, at all--I find the scene depressing and don't get excited by sex with people who aren't enjoying it.

Do you really want to? Can you afford...

You should try it if it is not too expensive for you, but make sure you sort everything out ahead of time.

I got a hooker in the Red Light district of Amsterdam who offered "sex and blow job" and all she did was give me a blow job and a hand job, only to tell me "full service" would be another 100 euros.

It's probably only worth it if you want to do it for the experience. Otherwise, you're most likely better off saving that money and spending it on a nice restaurant or some museums.

What are some tips for solo travel?

I'm halfway through a solo jaunt in Central Portugal (currently in Óbidos) and I've generally been having a blast but I'm not sure if I'm missing out on certain things because of my ignorance and shyness. Instead of staying in hostels, I oped for hotels/a VRBO apartment. I have local friends, but we can't hang out as much as we'd like because they have lives too (couldn't stay with them either as we're all young university students and their parents wouldn't been keen on some foreigner from...

That I should try to see less in the time I've allocated myself. Two, sometimes even three days per city is not enough, and hiking for less than three days straight sometimes seeems like a loss of time to me, whereas a week seems like heaven on earth.

Ya ur way fucking up bud

Solo travel is best coupled with cold approach pickup

Goal: fuck girls for a place to stay. Don't spend an hour without meeting someone new

Why is traveling considered to be such an admirable thing by most people? Travel is cool and all but nothing beats staying home and being comfy.

If that truly makes you happy then keep doing it. We are all raised and conditioned by our own social and cultural surroundings. Some people want to explore beyond there own boundaries. Some people want to explore themselves.
>>
Why not do both?

Be comfy 90% of the year. Then take a trip every now and then.

Because I am not a faggot loser who thinks staying home is the best thing ever and traveling does beat staying at home because staying home being on 4chan is for people that should kill themselves

I'm in Taipei. I'll be here for a while but I'm just getting settled now and don't have much to do aside from getting my shit in order. If anyone wants to hang out/meet up let me know.

Also, suggestions for things to do in the area?

Where in Taipei are you? The metro is super convenient to get anywhere really. If you're an /out/doors person hit up the hiking spots at 陽明山 (Yangmingshan), 象山 (Elephant Mountain), and 皇帝殿 (Emperor's Hall or something). Nightlife, shopping, and food are all good to explore as well; there's a lot to do in Taipei. How long are you there for?

>>1147522
A year, to learn the language. I'm staying in the Jingan MRT area at the moment. I'll look up those spots; I won't have much to do after I get my gm membership/sim card/ bank account settled.

That's awesome man, I would also recommend taking the HSR down to other cities like Tainan, Taichung, and Kaohsiung if you ever get bored of Taipei. Tickets are around 1000NTD which is a little over 30USD.

Everywhere I travel I see Australians. Do all of them go on frequent vacations or something? What gives

20 days paid vacation per year
Good exchange rate.
Not ausfalia.
Why wouldn't you travel elsewhere?
>>
>>1147397

We get good wages, couple that with paid vacation and then rostered time off and you can get anywhere from a month to a month and a half of travel every year.
>>
>>1147397
On top of decent wages and paid holidays, travelling is heavily engrained in our culture. It's simply part of our lifestyle, because we're raised to be adventurous and with the idea that "you need to see the world" if that makes sense.
