Hey guys I'll be taking my first really big journey this winter from New England to Miami then New Orleans and was hoping you knew some cool stuff to do Here's the route- Richmond, Raleigh, Charleston, Savannah, Daytona, stay a week in Miami, Tampa, Pensacola, spend a week in New Orleans, Jackson, Birmingham, Atlanta, Nashville, Washington, home. I'm interested in historic, cultural, and natural wonders plus cool places/ways to meet and hang out with new people
(Wish I was going to Los Angeles desu but don't have the time oh well)
>>1062535 new jersey guy from the south here. let me salute you for having the best planned driving route of the south I have seen in my time on /trv but it would be a lot better in the summer. i from raleigh but tourist often say there is nothing to do because no big tourist attractions. Find one of those papers that tells you what is going on in town that week. i think its also in the friday news and observer. it will be more useful than anything I could tell you here. good restaurants and bars but the museums etc are pretty lacking.
Is it because they can't get used to the local culture? People say that the pay is not that good, but surely it is better than working in retail/fast food restaurants in the west? Don't most ESL schools pay for your accomodation and flight tickets?
>>1062533 Think of it as a paid vacation and not an occupation. Except in rare instances it is not a job to build a life out of. Further the longer you do it, the further back in your career path you'll be left.
>>1062564 >Except in rare instances it is not a job to build a life out of Is it true that you only save very little money each month? What about teachong at an actual primary school/kindergarten? And surely teaching ESL abraod is better than, ugh, retail and catering in the west?
>>1062533 Because most people view it as a gap year gig which is really what it should be.
>>1062572 >Is it true that you only save very little money each month?
It depends on the country and job. Teaching in public schools in Korea is a very good deal. Or at least it used to be. The government cut the public school program back drastically but I believe jobs are still available in elementary schools. I saved about 10,000 dollars... Comment too long.

I'm going to be traveling to Ohio for christmas on a greyhound bus tomorrow night and I'm really anxious about it. Is there anyone who can walk me through everything I need to do? Do I need to get my luggage checked somewhere first?
I already bought and printed my tickets out so I dont need to worry about that atleast.
You don't need to do anything besides pack, there is no security on buses generally, the only exception to this is buses entering the northeast and central infrastructure regions of the U.S. Ideally every bus journey would be searched, but there are so many that only the ones going to critical parts of the country like Washington and New York are searched
The title really says it all guys. I'm going backpacking for 25 days through Vietnam starting the 28th of December. We're flying into Hanoi and from there, the country is our oyster. Our only set trip is to Phu Quoc for three days before we fly back up to Hanoi and than back to the states. While we've decided to leave most of our trip unplanned, what are the must see's? Which places will give us the best bang for our buck? Has anyone ever biked for a duration of their stay there? We want to bike but we aren't sure where we should/if its worth it.
You come at a wrong time my friend. Vietnam in the summer is a lot more fun seeing how beaches and tropical weather are our strong points. That being said:
1. Northern Vietnam: go to Sa Pa up north and climb the Fan Si Pang. Hanoi's winter is pretty nice, just rent scooters drive around and see shit for yourself, try plenty of street foods too. Go to Quang Binh for the caves and stuffs. Hookers are cheap in Hanoi
2. Mid Vietnam: Hoi An is overhyped but if you're into the old dynasty side of Vietnam then give it a shot
3. Southern: Ho Chi Minh... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
North: Hanoi (desu i thought it was way better than Ho Chi Minh), Ha long bay (it might be foggy), Sa Pa & the mountains, Ninh Binh.
Middle: Hue & Palace, Danang for beaches and royal tombs, Hai van pass (rent a motorbike, its amazing).
South: Ho Chi Minh, Chu Chi tunnels, Mekong Delta, Floating markets.
That's all the major stuff i did when i went to Vietnam in the summer last year, weather is good all around but Ha Long and Sa Pa might be foggy (though they weren't for us... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1062558 I know, I wish we could've chosen to go in the summer, but we both start our full time jobs in February and this is out last hoorah.
Thanks for the advice in the North. Is it worth it to get suits made in Hoi An/Da Nang? We read it was the best place overall.
Why would you say its better being white? My travel companion is light skin lol. What street foods would you recommend? I already love Pho, but that's in the US of course, so I'm sure its completely different.
Definitely... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I plan on going on a two week trip to China and Japan, in the summer. My plan thus far is:
>> Fly to HK and spend 1 day and night in HK >> Leave HK for Shenzhen and spend 2 nights in Shenzhen >> Take a train from Shenzhen to Shanghai, and spend 2 nights in Shanghai >> Take a train from Shenzhen to Beijing, and spend 2 nights in Beijing
From China > Japan

Items that make your travel life a lot easier. I like this large wallet thing to pack together all my tickets, passport, wallet, items, earbuds etc. It's just nice to be able to have a central thing to throw everything into and be able to find later.
>>1062472 First of all, its hip deep in expats who don't follow Islamic rules, so that's a reasonably target-rich environment.
There are also a lot of Muslim women, Arab. Asian and African. For obvious reasons. there needs to be an element of caution there. Many women in UAE will be more open to a little slap and tickle than in more traditional countries, but their husbands/brothers might not be, and the authorities might not be if things bet sticky.
(A good indication of the local schizophrenia on sexual... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1062476 Compared to many (most) other Islamic or Arabic countries, it is not. The issue is that the women don't come with warning labels to tell you which have a traditional father or brother lurking about.
You can't just pack up and move to a foreign country because you feel like it. Going to live in Europe is very difficult as a new worlder because visa restrictions on people from those countries are very tough. If your just some 19 year old angsty kid who dropped out of college and wants to live somewhere else good fucking luck, these countries want skilled workers not wage slaves, they can get those from the 3rd world and poorer EU countries.
