I know this is a lazy question, but I need to ask.
Can I get a work visa to work in Japan without a job offer? If I sent an application to the consulate here in America, is there a chance that I could get a work visa? I have a Bachelor's in Computer Science.
I poked around the various websites, like the Ministry of Japan and some consulate, but couldn't find info regarding this.
>>945241 What? In pretty much every western country there's one entry price for tourist sites. There are discounts for students, kids, and retirees but all adults pay the same.
OP, you just have to accept it. Don't look at the prices for locals because it will just make you rage. I don't believe that you went to Egypt and didn't pay to enter anything because no one is stupid enough to travel to another continent only to not see anything.
I no longer feel bad about these price differences, at... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

How does it compare to Thailand and Cambodia? My wife and I are planning on going to Laos here soon and I would like to also go to Burma but I am not sure itll be feasible, since its so hard to travel in Burma and time constraints. The trip would go roughly
>>944767 Go to Burma it's rapidly changing and in a few years it will be as populated with tourists as it's neighbors.
(2012)I got around via bus and plane and had little to no problem. Yes it's easier to get around Thailand, if it wasn't for years of shit government, corruption, and mismanagement Thailand would be closer to KL an Singapore. Yangon is kinda trashy, I say spend no more than a day here, the LP walking guide is suprisingly decent and you can end your day at the Strand chilling during happy hour. I took a comfortable night bus up to Bagan and spent 3 nights. Bagan by bicycle was such a chill, laid back, and wonderful sight. Personally I love temple architecture, so it was a huge bonus for me. We then took a bus to Kalaw for a staging point of a 3 day walk to Inle (¬60km). Inle was nice, but unless you really love riding a bike by a lake and taking in wineries, it's not too amazing. However I would work it into any plan. We (coworker and I) then flew to Ngapali Beach and had another few wonderful days. It's expensive over there, we managed to get into a hotel that was finishing construction for $40/night some Bungalows were $300. The beach was pristine and quiet. I really wish that I had visited Mandalay and Amarapura Bridge. Over all I believe we spent 19days there and I plan on returning soon/ You are right there are areas open to travel which are harder to get to, but the main stops are easy. The road to Kalaw or Inle is the bumpy one, the main highways going from Yangon to the North and smooth. Buses are better than trains for cost, safety, and cleanliness. It's easier to get around Thailand, don't forget they're #2 in the world for road deaths though. Cambodia, I felt it was as easy as Burma to get around. I have little experience in Laos. However, if your wife is worried about undeveloped, why the hell are you considering SEA at all? Delays, lack of foresight and safety, laid back "get there whenever" attitude etc. Also, stay away from Phuket.
Is it a good idea to travel solo if you have severe social anxiety?
It might be a stupid question, but I just don't know what to do. I really want to do something with my life, you know, go out, explore the world, meet people. But that last part is what really terrifies me. I'm afraid that if I do end up going to some foreign country, I'll pretty much just sit inside and shitpost on 4chan all day, and in that case I don't know if there's any point in travelling in the first place, since I can sit inside much more comfortably at home.

>>944766 I wouldn't say I had severe social anxiety when I started but I did love having my comfort bubble that I never left. I worked the same job for 11 years, I never went out, never met new people then one day I decided to take a 3 week trip and throw caution to the wind. Best decision I've ever made.

4chan is NOT blocked in China but 99% of google is, including captcha which 4chan uses. So...either use VPN or 4chan pass and you're fine. Heavy manual IPs in your hosts file will also work to a point but you have to update it sometimes and it doesn't *always* work.
Im pretty sure this is the first time I've ever been on /trv/ in the 8 or 9 years i've been coming on 4chan, but that picture caught my attention on the front page.
I have to say, having travelled a bit, despite how much I love my good old american hamburgers and ar-15s, we have absolutely NOTHING on good street food compared to most of the rest of the world.
A handful of falaffel and hotdog stands absolutely pale in comparison to the hawker centers and carts in Asian nations I've been to. I remember I was in singapore for business around ramadan... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So /trv/ I, like many of you who frequent this bored love traveling, however a lot of us don't get to do it as much as we'd like. For reasons such as finical burdens, career commitments or whatever really. We spend a lot of time dreaming about our next excursions or conjuring up memories of our past ones.
I'm low on money right now and traveling is not in the near future for me. I've sort of been on a search for films that express the essence and respect the aesthetic of a certain city/country, films that can help us bring back memories of our time... Comment too long.

Some recommendations that are also excellent films all around. I tried to stick to films made in that past 20 years that reflect the contemporary reality of these cities. Also yeah all Asia, that’s my thing.
Shanghai: Suzhou River
Hong Kong: City on Fire, Election
Tokyo: Lost in Translation, Tokyo Sonata, Ley Lines, Pigs and Battleships
Osaka: Osaka Tough Guys
Mumbai: Slumdog Millionaire

My dad will email me maybe once a week just to enquire what I'm up to (and I guess make sure that I'm still alive). If I had a Facebook I guess I would just use that. I seldom contact home of my own initiative; I guess I am bad at keeping in touch with people in general.
>>940391 I send my folks a message about every other day, usually just a text or Whatsapp. The longer I stay, the more I forget to do that, but they usually send me a message to check after a few days.
when I traveled long term I had an AT&T calling card and would call my girlfriend and family pretty often.
now I'm married to the girlfriend from that time and have a job that requires me to contact the office pretty regularly while Im out on my 10 days of sanctioned vacation a year. usually I send an email with a picture of something exotic to my bosses just to show them I wasn't lying about taking a vacation to avoid more work.
>>940263 Spending a couple of days in Takasaki/Maebashi on my next Japan trip. Anybody got any suggestions on cool things to do other than the Daruma temple? The basic plan is go up either Mt Haruna or Akagi since I'm travelling with a massive Initial D fan but outside of that I'm not too sure what else there is to do in that area.
>>940263 I'll be moving to Aussie this coming month. But I am planning to visit Japan during Australian winter holidays, in August perhaps.
Any Aussie cunts willing to share how much they spend there? From SEA, it's rather cheap flying to Japan using Air Asia, I am afraid tickets from Aussie to Japan gonna be expensive as hell, especially during holiday season.
Its relatively easy to do, but you won't live like a king as a code monkey unless you go somewhere phenomenally poor. You're best diversifying as much as possible (stocks, PPC, SAAS.. etc), and making sure your finances are good before you embark, so that you're able to be more flexible where you live/travel.
>>939943 I'm a programmer. I've done this for the last 2 1/2 years, since the gig got steady after working at it for half a year. It works well and I only work 2 hours a day on average. Probably closer to 1 1/2 hours. Traveled around Europe, hitting the UK, Portugal, Greece, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, and Germany. Much nicer doing it in the cheaper countries such as Bulgaria, as I could work for a couple of hours and pay for a week in a hotel.
Uh, yeah. >23 hours from Hanoi to Vientiane that was shit because they packed us in like Sardines, it was slow, and you had to sit on sacks of rice for 23 hours >26 hours from Kunming to Anshun only took mountain roads through villages, pretty sure I've seen the entire southwest corner of Guizhou. >36 hours from Urumchi to Hotan bus broke down just outside of Korla, arrived in Hotan at 4am where I almost got parted from everything I own by a gang of uighurs.
