Hey /trv/
In two weeks im going to Dessel for graspop.
I am staying in Belgium after that, going to Brugges then Brussels for a while.

What are some must see/do in these cities, or other cities nearby? Also any tips welcome
Thank you

Johannesburg can be pretty bad if you dont pay attention to your belongings. There is visible security walking about, but it doesn't necessarily deter some opportunists.

Also be aware that there have been recent reports about a crime syndicate on flights to Asian countries where they ransack your overhead stored luggage when you're either asleep or gone to the bathroom.

A lot of Hispanic culture with some areas still having the old times western look. But if you really want true western look you'd have to go further south to Laredo. Although it's...

I'll be with my missus and a friend of hers. We're from Australia and have never been to the USA.
Has anyone got some great recommendations for some trendy bars and such? Roof top bars, great beach bars etc etc.
Preferably on the cheaper side, but if there's some unmissable spots that are expensive, I'm all ears.

Instead, you could get a cheap room out in Beaverton or North Portland (a little sketchy) and just take the MAX into downtown.

Depends on the type of places you go to and when. When I went interrailing when I was 18 in July sex was at least reasonably common.

If you're 6'2", Australian, muscular and a surfer, it's gonna be easy as pie. If you're not, you're gonna have to rely on luck and your wit. Hostels in Europe are full of the former type.

You can maximize your chances by staying in party hostels, of course, or by going to destinations where people implicitely go to party and have sex.

If you're at a random hostel in some city in Europe that is not known for being a party destination, few girls will be there to have sex...

Once you get to the airport, go to the information desk and get yourself a museum pass. They're like €50 and last three, four or six days from when you first use it. It's a bit cheaper than what you'd pay to see the museums if you are gonna museum it up and most of the time you get to skip lines, too. Get the shortest time one for cheap and write the starting date on it in light pencil so you can erase it and rewrite it later.

I thought this would be the best place to ask this:

I am planning to fly from Oslo to Manila through Qatar airways, but the ticket I am planning to take, the transit time in Doha is only 45 minutes.
This concerns me, as I have had bad experience of this. I fear that the airport would be too large and there's so many security processes, that I would most likely miss the flight. Something that happened in Schiphol a while back, where my transit stay was 50 min

Anyone got experience with Doha here?

I have no particular experience with Doha, but it def sounds tight.

Problem is that some online sales sites really don't think about this. But if you have bought the ticket directly from the airline, then they will put you on the next flight. If you haven't bought it from the airline, you could get screwed.

Also, you might reach the flight, but it is quite likely that your luggage will not.

I haven't bought ticket yet, but I plan to buy it directly from the airline.
So you're sure Qatar Airways will put me on the next flight without any problem if ever I miss the flight?

>>1121859
If you have bought the ticket directly through them, then it really should not be a problem, they will rebook you for free if you miss the flight. 45 minutes is tight, but maybe it's planned in a way the gates are very close to each other. My guess is if your plane is on time you'll have staff waiting for you at the gate and guide you to the plane directly.

Just make sure you don't need to use the bathroom right after you get off the plane. Assume you need to run straight to the next gate.

Sell me on Kuala Lumpur.

I will be traveling through Malaysia and have the opportunity to detour to KL and stay a night or two, but this will mean less time in rural areas. I suppose I feel its silly to visit that part of Malaysia, get so close to KL and just miss it, but then I don't know an awful lot about the city either.

I am interested in history, culture and the natural world but am partial to any unique experience potentially (stuff I will have no problem experiencing in more rural Malaysia regardless).

kuala lumpur is kind of gay. it's just a 2nd world capital with semi-functional roads and public transit, with amenities available at cost to nurture foreign capital.

not bad. you can do some fun things that you could do at home at cost in KL, but there's nothing particularly cultural, etc. about it. you won't find much muslim culture, or indian culture, or chinese culture. it's just a city that floods a lot which attracts business.

I'd say there's a fair reason most travelers...

KL is not your best bet, then. Although it's quite green for a "big" city (it's actually pretty modest in size--less than 2M people, or 1/5 the size of Bangkok, for example), it's an urban area. And it's not particularly historic, although there is some late 19th/early 20th-century architecture scattered around, particularly in Chinatown and Brickfields--Melaka, which has a nicely preserved historical...

Hmm, seems to back up my concerns about KL. For the record if I don't detour there it will mean more time in Singapore, Gua Musang and Kota Bharu...
I'm definitely leaning towards missing KL altogether.

So, what did you do there? Did you get out of Cape Town at all? Share pics?

I might have some questions for you, based on answers to those general points of information.

Considering going to South Africa soon, but I need to know: how's Joburg nowadays?

I heard it has a phenomenally high crime rate, but I've also heard that the crime rate has gone down and police response times have shortened in the not too distant past.

Depends on the neighborhood. Having said that, I walked through Hillbrow, a notorious neighborhood, at night with a huge duffel bag around my shoulders that had my passport and tons of electronics, and nothing happened. I was an absolute retard and nothing happened, if you're smart you'll be fine. Petty crime is big, just don't look like a tourist. Joburg is a cool city.

I'm a student and i will leave for munich during the winter semester. I heard it's a real pain in the ass for finding a home in munich. Does anyone ever lived there as a student? Was it hard finding a home? Anyone have a piece of advice about getting an apartment over there?

Airbnb is getting crazy there because of the new german laws, but you can still try it.
There's also hostels, craigslist, couchsurfing, etc.

From what I've heard the prices are insane as in every bigger german city.

OP I hope you don't mind if I piggy back on your thread but speaking of Europe, I'm moving to the UK and I want to know the best way to transfer my savings over there.
My plan was to open an account with HSBC or Barclays and when I'm in the UK I'll access the money as needed.
Is that the best way? Honestly I'd carry it all in a bag if I could

No, this is fairly clearly a modified Latin alphabet. A few of the letters (particularly the backwards 'c', backwards 'e') look like letters from the African Reference Alphabet, and the diacritic marks look sort of Arabic, so I would suspect a language of some Muslim people of Africa.

Not big on tours, but that actually seems pretty cool. Might check it out.

Yeah, tours is tours, but shit -- it's sloths, and sloths are bros.

Poke around a little, there may be a less packaged alternative.

Although i did it few times. Its more fun to stay a few days. Talk and get some insiders info. Completely depended on how u comunicate with your host and how it clicks i guess.

I stayed for weeks at full serviced mansions/apartements/ gated comunnities.

But also shared small spaces with lots of other surfers at hosts.

Its a rather cool comunnity, if u can filter out the weird people and conect with like minded people.

Even then its always a guess.

I fucked one host

Hi travelniggers!

Im going to Sri Lanka in july, does anyone have any great reccomandations?

I was thinking of driving down to Galle from Colombo, maybe stopping in Hikkaduwa (or is it a shithole?)

Then checking out the beaches in the south, around Tangalle, surfing a bit (any good ones?).

Driving up to Ella, hiking in the tea plantations and maybe even up Adams Peak which is 2 k masl. On the way stopping in the national parks etc.

Does it sound like a good plan? Any must sees? Hidden treasures? Wasn't really thinking about hitting...

Galle is easily worth a day, quite nice really. Hikkaduwa isn't much to look at, but there's nice beaches along that stretch of the coast. Road's quite busy though, and the driving style is rather Asian.

Don't know about surfing, but definitely an option.

Ella/Adam's Peak/National Parks are definitely nice, the scenery around that area is quite...

Do that. It's out-of-this-worldly beautiful. Bat as the other anon said, it can get busy.
