>>1132811 some people take a motorbike around the island
you can see the rice terraces (that doesn' take long though)
the best thing about bali is the traditional architechture. even peasants live in these richly decortated pagan stone edifice buildings, so you can head into the central island to see that.
go to some of the temples.
a month might be a bit long for just bali, imo. depends on what you want. south kuta has pretty low waves. no one would wnat to surf those for a mnth straight, you... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1132811 You can do the typical Mount Batur early morning/sunrise "trek". It's pretty nice, but I'm sure there are some less frequented volcanoes to climb that will give you a nice view of the sunrise.
I'd recommend motorbike around the island. Bali is a beautiful island, and taking it easy by driving around is a lot of fun.
If you want something else to do you can ferry over to Lombok and kill some time over there (once again doing beaches, trails, and such) or relax for a few nights... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Just got back from a month long trip to indonesia, stayed in bali for 1 week of the trip. Definitely rent out a scooter for the time you are there. (Honda Beat or Scoopy if you can Vario's are bad) Ride up to see NungNung waterfall, huge waterfall at the bottom of 500 stairs, surrounded by jungle and forrestry. Pic related Kuta beach/ Kuta general if you are club scene and ready to see a bunch of rowdy australians. Plenty of hindu temples to see, would reccomend Tanah Lot, Goa Gajah, Garuda Wisnu.

Hey guys So I'm traveling to Brazil to visit my relatives soon. My mother says it's very dangerous there. Have any of you travelled to Brazil and where? How dangerous is it really? I'm traveling to Sao Paulo which isn't extremely dangerous but we're considering Salvador too. I heard it's really dangerous there.. Have any of you been in some of these places or just Brazil?
>>1131782 We're going there for three weeks in December. No we don't have a budget in mind, but I doubt it's more expensive than Southern Europe, is it? We're also considering traveling more south and maybe to the Iguazu waterfalls because it should be safer there than in the north.
My friend and I are heading to Taiwan next month. Looking to find some interesting or exciting to do that wouldn't be as obvious or just for particular recommendations from people who have been to Taiwan. We are particularly interested in trying anything new and unique, something I couldn't do anywhere else. We are also interested in history and seeing some of the nature outside of Taipei, but din't really know where specifically to go.
In terms of history/culture there is the Palace Museum. It has many artifacts related to Taiwanese/Chinese history. Currently, I think they have some terracotta soldiers on loan from China. One of the things the Palace Museum is best known for is the Jade Cabbage. You will probably have to wait in line to see it. Aside from the Palace Museum there is the Chiang kai shek (not sure if that's how it's spelled) memorial hall. I don't really remember much about it since I haven't visited it for years....

My fiancee and I will also will be traveling there for a few days next month... I'm planning to go to Green Island for at least two nights... We'd really like to make room for Jiufen but aren't sure how much time should be spent there. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
So far Itinerary looks like this:
Day one: Arrive Taoyuan Int. around 17:00 By some fucking miracle get transportation to my cheap hotel in Taipei and grab dinner at a night market.
Day two: Get to Shulin Train Station (New Taipei City) and take 4 hour train ride to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Going to Madagascar tomorrow, any last minute tips you guys have? I've learned a little Malagasy, just some basics to be able to thank and address people properly, and stocked up on anti-malaria drugs.
I've read about fady, their local taboos, but is that really something to take into account or is it exaggerated?
>>1135703 >stocked up on anti-malaria drugs You should always buy anti-malaria drugs at the place. There are different strains across the world and different medications. Don't count on the drugs to really protect you, lately there has been high resistance and not only against malaria drugs.
just so you can double check op.... malarone should be fine. remember to take once daily, if you vomit 1 hr after taking pill take another one and IMPORTANT to go to the doctor and inform him of your venture whenever you get sick 1year from visiting a malaria infested region. safe travels
I'm interviewing at a place in Georgia on Friday. I'm from the midwest and have never been to GA before, and have 5-6 hours of free time after the interview until I need to be at the airport for the return flight. What are some things I should do/see when I'm down there? I'll be interviewing about an hour northeast of Atlanta, but have a rental car with unlimited miles.
Also Dirty South general I guess: if anyone lives/has lived down there, info about the good/bad areas, weather, etc. would be much appreciated.
I'm in Atlanta frequently. Definitely do Underground Atlanta if you're into the history of the area -- one of the oldest areas of Atlanta, under the city of course. Little Five Points for food (Tijuana Garage), bookstores, etc. It's going to be hot as the nine circles of hell; there's no other worthy description of July in Hotlanta.
>>1135518 Thanks for the info. I've been checking out houses/apts online for a while now so I'm only gonna spend maybe 30 min to an hour checking out some neighborhoods. The rest of the time I'll probably checking out Atlanta. I might even have some time Thursday since my flight gets in at like 4. Might stop by the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area on my way back to Atlanta too.

Hey /trv/ here is one I figured would be good to ask.I have a ticket to Europe already, and am planning a several month Trip. I dont have an exact plan for returning but do want to plan a return, once I kinda figure this out. With your Experience, what has been some of the cheapest Airports for you to fly out of? Keep in Mind, Just about anywhere Western Europe will do. I will be in France, Spain, Germany and most likely stop in the UK too. If an Airport is another Country near these, I will certainly consider it.
>>1135367 Some of the busiest are, perhaps obviously, Frankfurt and Amsterdam Schipol. I have had relatively cheap transatlantic flights from both of these (I am assuming despite your Strange Use of Capital Letters that you are American). Heathrow may offer deals too, or at least a lot of options, although I've only recently realized, to my embarrassment, that the busiest airports are not necessarily the cheapest.
Norwegian Airlines is supposedly a budget carrier, presumably operating out of Oslo--they not long ago... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've been backpacking around the globe for the past three years and reflecting on that whole experience I have come to realize that I enjoyed the times when I was staying/working at one place for a longer period of time and got to experience and live the day to day lifestyle of the locals, make friends and get to know them on a deeper level and find my way around the place I have enjoyed my time a lot more than rushing in and out of 2 hostels a week, meeting people for a day or two and then moving on.

I'm going to be operating Airbnbs in downtown Vancouver. I have a few questions for some experienced hosts who take Airbnb seriously and use it as a significant source of income.
1 - Do you meet your guests or let make them pick up keys at key holding services?
2 - How do you deal with neighbors/security/property mangers, and how do you make your airbnb as discrete as possible?
3 - Do you offer your guests parking? New strange cars in the apartments parkade every couple days seems like a dead giveaway for those investigating possible Airbnbs in... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

My street is closed for car. Parkings are outside of the city. 4) Depends on where you live. I don't really rise my price during holidays. 5) Never.

>>1135248 Hosting in Venice, Italy 1) I always meet my guests and talk to them, I explain where the places of interest are, where to buy groceries, where to eat and reply to anything they ask about 2) nosy neighbours are easily silenced if you have all the authorizations, same goes for homeowners. If you intend on doing this illegally forget it. No matter what precautions you take, guests will end up making themselves obvious and you'll be in trouble.

These seem like reasonable requests, you had bad experiences with people making them? Also any other group of people in addition to mainland Chinese which are trouble? I was doing student exchange with Spaniards and don't think I'll ever let group of them into my property.

First time posting on /trv/. Please forgive me if this is too off subject.
Hubby and I are wanting to eventually end up somewhere in Oregon or Washington (most likely Oregon near Portland or right on the coast).
We currently live in Tennessee, at least 2500 miles away from where we'd want to move to. I wanted to know if anyone had any long-distance moving advice, or any advice on living in Oregon or Washington.

I take most of my vacations going to either Portland or down the Oregon coast somewhere. Its all super beautiful, and if you love clam chowder and other seafood thats fresh, even better.
Really the western sides of both the states are basically the same, rainy, trees, beaches, Mountains, liberals, hipsters, etc. So where you want to move will not be as dificult as where you can get a job doing what ever it is you do.

What is Kos like? I'm looking at visiting. I've done a lot of the Greek Islands, namely Crete (fantastic, endless things to do/see), Skiathos (small but picturesque), Corfu (stunning), Santorini (quirky and has it's unique charm) and Rhodes (full of history but very tourist pandering).
What's Kos like? Given it's proximity and it's history, is there a huge Turkish influence there like in Rhodes?
And if there's any /pol/weenies here wanting to post "hurr Mudslime rapefugees durr", you can get the fuck out.
>>1134663 Lots of stray dogs, some mountains you can hike up or drive up on a moped. It's not that big you can see it in like 3-4 days. It's not top tier but has some nice places, like the dried salt lake with the shitload of birds.
It's SUPPOSED to have a lot of refugees there, but I haven't been recently.
I am going to travel down to Albania for a week or two. Will probably visit the capital Tirana and look around the beaches. Any other cities worth checking out that are near Tirana? What are some must see things in Albania? How is the safety, are they like Romanians that steal everything? And where can you get cheap weed in Albania, I heard they have lots of tobacco and marijuana plantages.

I've never been to St. Petersburg, but I can tell you that you don't have to bump a thread on /trv/ three minutes after you start it, and certainly not one more time not even an hour after that again. It's a slow board. In the last thread in the catalogue, the last reply was three days ago. Just be patient and people will answer you, if not, bump it in a few days.
Has anyone here been to Namibia? If so, what could you tell me about traveling there? Renting my own car isn't an option, but I was considering taking a guided tour on the Desert Express or something similar, or barring that, I've heard that you can see Namibia via hitchhiking. Is the former rewarding, and is the latter really viable?
I don't want to get into too many specifics, but the car issue isn't a matter of me not knowing where to rent/not having the money/whatever, it's a matter of me not being able to drive due to a disability (I'm fine in most regards, and have traveled independently multiple times before, but driving is the one major thing I continue to struggle with).

>>1133664 it's because of the Earth's rotation, something you may have learned about if you weren't a dumb American. If you're going from Europe the planes can just be suspended in the air and have the Earth rotate underneath until the plane is over America. This method obviously uses much less fuel and therefore is cheaper.
Whatsup /trv/ I got 13 months free that I can and will spend in Australia and New Zealand.
Starting out in New Zealand in november and I have to leave Australia in december 2017. My question is, how many months for each country? I'm combining working with travelling. I have to enter australia before 20th june of 2017 but I am considering going there earlier. NZ isn't THAT big to spend half a year there?
I take it the weather in New Zealand gets bad in april? So, NZ november-march and then Australia April-december?

Is there any cheap/less expensive way to fly to South America?
I'd like to go down to Argentina and check it out. Based on some research it seems like I could have a great time without spending too much money... except on airfare, which is a fucking arm and a leg. I've used discount services but the ticket prices still seem to be outrageous. Is there anything I can do?
