Greetings /trv/, I have 2.5 months to travel and I'm flying to Kuwait first, then taking a boat to Khorramshahr, travelling around Iran, visiting Herat and surrounding areas in Afghanistan, going back to Iran, then crossing to Pakistan.
Asking advice from people who've been there before about cool things to do or see. I've been to Iran before so I've seen most of the major attractions, but any lesser known points of interest would be good to know about. I know very little about Pakistan so any insider tips there would be appreciated.
>>1046458 Excellent, thanks for the info. How long ago were you in Pakistan? Is it possible to visit the Swat Valley without prior arrangements? Yeah I was already planning on venturing up to Gilgit, I'll put Peshawar on the list as well as that sounds interesting.
And did you visit Herat yourself? I'd like to hear more about that if you did. I speak enough Persian to get around so I'm pretty keen to get outside the city a bit and visit some rural areas, of course I'd ask around concerning the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I saved some info from a thread about Pakistan from september 2013, so this might be outdated. But here goes. But first a question from me: can you make yourself understood in Pakistan with Persian?
Baltistan seems to be good.
>Islamabad is a constructed city, sort like brazilia. Its not very nice and not much to do. If you are going to stay there, stay in rawalpindi, which is where most people who work in islamabad live. Also, go to fucking Peshawar, you will not regret it. >Dat frontier/Kiplingesque/wartorn feel.

>>1046299 As a mexican who has done a fair bit of domestic travel, I think it really depends on your budget and the part of the country you want to visit. The place where I have had the best time was in Xilitla, San Luis Potosi, a little hidden gem stuck in a region that is a bit violent nowadays. Guanajuato is a nice old city, Mexico City has stuff for everyone, Cancun is a touristic shithole and Playa is a bit better. Oaxaca is a rather poor but otherwise strong in tradition state with good food(and sometimes disgusting such... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1046299 I've been to Mexico many times. My favorite places are probably Mexico City, which I approached with terror but found delightful, and Oaxaca, which has one of the cleanest and best-preserved historical centers I've seen anywhere in Mexico (another is in Querétaro).
>>1046299 I spent a few weeks traveling through the southern and central states. From Quintana Roo to Jalisco. It's my favourite country that I've been to so far. I think you can find everything you're looking for in one of the regions of the country so I highly recommend going.
Thankfully I realized this early on life as a child/teenager, having spent a cumulative year of my life in several dozen countries, but many people have never been overseas before and get lured into this scam because they hear about how great it supposedly is.
You want to experience 'travel'? Go to that local suburb you've never been to. Or go to a nearby nature reserve; there's bound to be one. Stay there a day; a week; a month - it doesn't matter.
The truth is that the world is pretty... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
what if you just really want to experience different cultures/surroundings? i get the trope of the yuppie white 20-something instagramming every little place he goes and romanticizing poverty, and it's obnoxious. but can't a person be self-aware and just really want to see another part of the world? people have done that for centuries
How does /trv/ afford exuberant air costs? It's about $1,000 roundtrip to Europe and 1,500 for Asia. Maybe I just have a skewed view of money, being a dirt poor college student. It's frustrating because I have wanderlust bad.
>>1046173 You probably just don't know how to find affordable flight tickets. Return to Europe can be found from around €270,-. Don't know about USA-Asia, but return Europe-Asia starts at around €300,-.
>>1046177 Okay. First, it is very interesting to follow certain websites that post cheap flights and stuff on their website. I don't know any American websites for this but I am sure they exist. This is a British example: http://www.holidaypirates.com/flights. Of course this will not help you directly so a few options: - Norwegian Air Shuttle. Dirt cheap flights from Boston, New York, Orlando, Miami, and some west coast cities to Europe (mainly Oslo, Copenhagen, Stockholm and London). Just a quick look shows me a $299,20...

Okay so I recently got a job in a larger european airline, which means when I have time of, I can can get plane tickets (Star Alliance) cheap as hell, and get pretty good discounts on some of the major hotels and car rentals.
So I was wondering if you guys could recommend me some good travel destinations for traveling alone. I just want to see the world and get some perspective.
Pic related, rly enjoy my own company, though I have nothing against being social.
I've been round in most of Europe, when traveling with my family, when i was a boy. Well, art, culture, nature, literature, architecture, food, people, music, most things interest me rly. My bad, it was a little vague, but I really don't know where to start.
I am looking to go to one of the Baltic capitals over the Christmas period just for a few days before i head off on my second SEA trip in January, so which city would you recommend the most? Criteria - Architecture, Price, Good food, Bars and general nice ambiance.
>>1045835 Hmm. I went to them in a row in winter and I enjoyed Tallinn most. For some reason Riga didn't do much to me (was enjoyable though), but I am sure I need to go back sometime in summer. Spend few hours in Vilnius and it looked great in the layer of snow.
