I'm looking to take some leave at the end of this year, and I'm not entirely sure where I want to go. I want to do something completely different to; 'backpacking in Europe'.
Where is somewhere extraordinary, or strange that you would travel? I'll leave where I'm out of this, so it poses no question of distance/price.

So how celebrated is Canada Day in Montreal? I know Quebec has a questionable relationship with the rest of Canada, but will there at least be some sort of celebration? I'm heading to Montreal from June 26th - July 6th and staying at the M Montreal hostel and just wanted to know if there will be stuff to do on July 1st.

Speaking of Montreal,

any restaurants I can try out to get the Canadian experience?

Any places to check out?

Is there a train that I can take from Montreal to Quebec City or Toronto for a day or two?

What clubs should I...

It's still Canada, bro. Not some angry Uighur village in farflung China. Yes, there will be plenty of events. Only the buttmaddest of Quebec nationalists will stay away, and we're all the better for that!

Yes there are restaurants and 'places' to check out. As it seems like you've done zero research and expressed no interestes, I'm gonna skip replying to that until you give us more to work with.

Yes, there are trains (Via Rail), and busses too. Quebec city is a "day...

>Quebec has a questionable relationship with the rest of Canada

Easy far over-stated. Actual hostility to Canada is very rare; it's a matter of competing allegiances. More analogous to, say, Texas than Turkistan or whatever you have in mind.

But Ottawa is really the place to be for Canada Day, and it's close to Montreal. Also IIRC Canada Day is "moving day" in Montreal so a lot of people are occupied with that (leases run out / start then for whatever reason).
*Turkistan = Kurdistan

Hey /trv/, this is my first time here so sorry if I don't know the rules yet.

I'm going to New Orleans for the first time during Mardi Gras next week. Any tips for a first time visitor? I want to get some drinks and listen to good local music, any sites that list local events?

Please and thank you!

Never been, but as with all large gatherings of people, keep your head about you and make sure to keep your possessions safe.
For sure. I've been looking up like, etiquette from a couple websites and a lot of people mention not bringing a lot of valuables. Thanks, anon. I'll have to maintain a steady buzz instead of getting hammered every night.
Yeah safety should be your first concern. There was a shooting in Thibodaux LA at a parade a few days ago, and it wouldn't surprise me if one or two people got killed at parades in New Orleans. But...that's not going to change. So just remember that there is a slim chance you will hear gunshots during your stay.

That said, from Thursday before MG to Fat Tuesday itself, you can't go wrong. I am a local and I've experienced both the family friendly and wild partying sides of it. St Charles...

Is laos worth the hassle? I am in hanoi right now flights are expensive and the buses seem to be the most annoying that ever existed.

The whole chill out vibe seems horrible to me, but i want to see the meme place where people die all the time, and maybe spend a few nights in a cheap hotel to prepare for onwards travel.

Also how dead is vang vieng exactly? I heard they are progressively shutting it down.

Has anyone done the trip recently and can recommend a company like sinh travel? I am booking myself, no hostels or agencys.

I am in hanoi with a friend and we just met a canadian girl who have been in Laos 5 years ago, and she told us that it was her favorite country in south asia.
We plan to go there by bus in few days, renting mortor bike, going around, from the north to the south for 1 month, that kind of things. People says that it's very interesting because the tourism industry is not that big over there so... It might worth the hassle. At least for us it worth it.
I was there in late September

Luang Prabang is gorgeous and Kuang Si is a must visit if you go
Vang Vieng is anything but dead, restaurants selling drugs were plentiful and there was like 50 people doing the tubing on the day that I went. Great fun.

hey guys first time on this board ever, but 4chan is my go to for advice on illicit things

I'm a college student and all of my friends and I want to go on a cruise this summer to wherever, it doesn't really matter.
HOWEVER I just called norwegian cruise lines about their policy on age and apparently they need at least one 21 year old per room
of course my friends and I have fake IDs
would they or any cruise background check our IDs?

pic related mfw they said I was too young

I believe you would be needing a passport if I am not mistaken. You can get decent fakes of those too. You'll be fine.
Where are you from? Cheapest cruise are typically Carnival. Nicest for price probably Royal Caribbean
Just book an over-21 into the room, and have him cancel. They won't even notice and if they did, they don't want to lose a grand on an empty cabin, do they? Just say he got sick but you're reeeeeally looking forward to the trip because you heard great things.

They'll make an exception for sure. If they don't catch it until you board, there is a 0% chance you'll be denied entry.

Fakies MIGHT work but since you need a passport to go country to country its probably the only acceptable ID.

And don't try a fake passport unless you like spending years in jail, >>1076821 is being a cunt .

Hi everyone, I am wondering if anyone has advice on accessing wireless internet in Germany through mobile networks. From what I can tell, the mobile networks there don't really offer mobile data plans that are worthwhile.

Does anyone have any experience with Vodafone.de's WiFi Flat plan over there?
4 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
Mobile data 4G LTE is available for about 5-10€/GB valid for 30 days from almost any provider.

One of the cheapest options is probably Aldi Mobile, 5GB, valid for 30 days for 14.99€

I have no experience with the WIFI flat, but I guess in most larger cities it's a good option (also most restaurants/businesses already have free wifi anyway).
In rural areas or if you depend on it it might let you down..
LTE still is not available for prepaid data cards; only slower standards are available. The companies reserve it mainly for contract customers. Bandwidth allowance is a joke for most offers.

Free WiFi is barely available because of stupid laws. I can't remember ever seeing any free wifi hotspots in non-hotel restaurants/bars/cafés.
Then again, I'm from the rural South of Germany.
I've had a look at the mobile data plans from most companies, and while the price is alright the data constraint is very jarring.
I've actually got coverage for Vodafone's wifi network where I stay (for a few months), but can't make an account with them because I don't have a German bank account. I've checked it out on their site and apparently if you connect to their network you are allowed to generate several extra logins...

I want to go traveling on Spring Break, my last one ever. I also just got dumped by essentially a female cross between Will Hunting and The Most Interesting Man in the World, and I realized that I haven't lived a lot of life on my own and I have to make a lot of my own fun and interesting memories.

I don't have a huge amount of money, maybe 2 grand if I'm lucky, and my car broke down so I have none of my own transit. I'm from the Chicago area. Is traveling to a hostel in Europe absolutely out of the question? Should I take a train to San Francisco?...

2 grand is plenty for Europe. You can fly to London or Amsterdam from O'Hare for $600-1000 round trip, depending on the time of year. Figure €50/day including hostel, less if you eat cheap and don't drink.
I got tickets from DC to Costa Rica foe $31500 round trip for spring break. Get on sky scanner, pick your dates, starting airport and click everywhere. Pick the most interesting choice in your budget. You can try this with all airports you're willing to fly from.
That price though

Hey there /trv/

If you had the opportunity to study 6 months in China, in one of the following options:

1.- Xidian University in Xi'an, Shaanxi
2.- Wuhan University of Technology in Wuhan, Hubei
3.- Beihang University in Beijing, China
4.- Tongji University in Shanghai, China

What would choose and why?
Where do you live better?
Where is cheaper to live?
What is the best tourist spot?

P.S. I am a middle class student, with a monthly income of 3,600 Chinese Yuan.
6 replies and 1 images submitted. Click here to view.
If you want to experience a deeper Chinese life i suggest Xi An, awesome place. Amazing food, very cheap fun city and a good base for visiting many interesting places. Women will be easier then because there are not so many foreigners.

If you want an easier experience just go to Shanghai or Beijing which are more westernized.

I can't talk about Wuhan, i haven't been there.

Unfortunately, with only 3,600 yen per month I have to pay rent, food, transportation and entertainment. I think the University accommodation is the cheapest option. What do you think Anon?
Then with that money you shouldn't even consider shanghai or Beijing, it's just not enough if you have to pay rent with it.

You can always find a part time job in any of the cities though

What can one do in big bear with $300 and some friends?

For example, guy who has lived in Japan for 5 years goes back home and replies in one of the many threads on Japan with an American flag next to his post would be considered a worse source of knowledge then someone who showed up in Japan a week ago but thinks they're an expert on everything Japanese and posts with a Japan flag.

Every time this is brought up the answer is a clear no. There is not a single benefit it would bring. On the other hand, it would bring lots of downsides.
No. Youre not the first person to ask. There's literally no good reason to have a flag if you're traveling around, it will only confuse people.

Okay /travel/ hear me out.

I'll be in between jobs from march 7th till april 1. At first I was thinking about going on a solo trip for that period. But the thing is I have a concert march 25th I really need to go to. So now I am limited in time from lets say march 7, till march 25. About 2 weeks.

So what is good to travel to for 2 weeks. I was planning on going from city to city and staying in hostels so its easy to meet up people.
I am from the Netherlands and I've been to most west European cities.

Generic East Yurop tour (Baltics, Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Romania/Ukraine for instance) should keep you plenty busy and not break the bank. You could probably also spend two weeks in either of the mentioned countries.
Think i'll end up doing something like that indeed.
But still open for more ideas.
I don't understand the question, you could go anywhere on earth for two weeks.
You want to stay in Europe? Or would you consider places like Morocco or Turkey?

Well the problem with being a NEET is not having money, since you're oh well, NEET. As long as you have resources, just do it. Even better if you have someone travelling with you.

On the other hand I don't know shit, might be different than in my country. I've heard you get some SICK welfare in Scandifag countries.
