If you had £600 to spend (that's $855.19 or €785.24) and ~3 weeks free time, what travel plans in Europe would you make?
Plans can be as brief or detailed as you like. I've been stuck in my uni town all year and I feel like I'm stagnating, but I'm not yet inspired by any of the tentative travel ideas I've come up with. I won't say anything about my interests or where I've been before, because I'd like to hear a wide variety of suggestions for how different people would choose to spend that budget.
Where can I find statistics about luggage room pricing and places? What countries it is common in them (most Europe I know)? How much they charge? Is there big companies or just hostels and hotels that charge?
I'm going to be in china for the next few months (leaving in feb) and I want to visit a friend in India while I'm there. I'm on a tightish budget, what is the most effective way of getting to India from China (I'll be in Sichuan province)?
I'm travelling to Ecuador and Peru in February and since my Canadian money is weak I am wondering if instead of exchanging my money into USD I could bring rolls of Canadian quarters instead. Would store owners, bus drivers and taxi drivers accept this instead of American dollar bills?
Hey /trv/ in 3 days I'll be going to Europe for a month, specifically sweden, London and spain. I current have a Samsung s 6 with verizon here in the states, would I be able to use this phone in Europe, a international sim card or will I need to rent a phone?
What is trv opinion regarding Uber? Is uber legal in your country? Would you recommend a foreign tourist to use it in your country? How cheap is it compared to local taxis? Do drivers provide a good service? Do you support taxi drivers claims?
In Spain uber is not legal. As far as I know, we were one if the first countries to ban it, due to the powerful taxi lobby
However i live in China, where uber is legal and works really fine. There is huge competition between uber and chinese version of uber 滴滴打車 so prices... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
So do any of you have stories about being mugged / attempt at mugging while travelling? Extra points for escaping through violence / funny stories.

First time poster in this board. I'm going to be spending 4 days in Granada during holy week. Aside from the Alhambra and the religious processions, what are some interesting things to do? What are the best places for drinks and tapas?
>>1075009 Congrats anon, Granada is one of the most beautiful cities in spain if not europe. Only problem is that it is a little bit too small and 4 days will be plenty to visit, though that might be good being holy week and you will be able to visit without rush. More or less all the places are amazing for tapas but a rule of thumb is to get where it's the most crowded. You will rarely fail if you do like that.
The city itself is pretty chill but places that are a bit more "scenic" are Albaicin, Sacromonte,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
mobay and ocho rios are godawful cruise port tourist traps where you'll spend the entire time being harassed to buy garbage trinkets and get called a racist if you don't to try to guilt you into it. negril was chill with beautiful beach and diving when i was there a few years ago, but i hear it's moving in the direction of the northern ports. south coast doesn't have shit for beaches, but it's nice to visit because people don't rely on tourists there so you don't get harassed. drivers are fucking maniacs, but if you're in a rural area...

I just got back from Jamaica, it is beautiful but you need to be careful. Outside of resorts it is very very ghetto. I would not personally drive around the island myself. It is not uncommon to see thugs with machetes.
Most places take USD, we did not have to exchange our money.
I am considering emigrating to Israel as soon as I get my bachelor degree, so I have a few questions to ask. Firstly, how do people treat repatriants there? THere are lots of emigrants from all over the world so I wonder if it is hard to find yourself in the society. Secondly, will it be easy for me to find a job with a degree in economics? Also, I'd be glad to hear more about the country from those who live or have been there so that I could assess what awaits me in the immediate future.
What is objectively the most dangerous country to travel in? At first I thought North Korea, but at least it has a central government that can be negotiated with. It's probably all of Afghanistan and the tribal areas of Pakistan.
>>1074567 Nah I was just in parts of Afghanistan that weren't extremely terrible. But the terrible parts would be up there. I'd say anywhere in ISIS territory, most militant groups are prepared to hold you for extended periods while bargaining, but those dudes seem to be all about the video production.
Dude either you want to go or you don't. It will be an adventure and there will be hardship. If you're not ready to throw yourself to the world then do what the rest of us do and wither away at an office job.
Either way you're never gonna get out of it alive.
>>1074562 A condo in BKK isn't all that expensive actually. You could definitely live there for a few years if you have some spare cash. You just need a job and to work out what you're doing visa wise for all that time.
Hey friends, let me introduce myself a little bit first. I'm a 22 year old Belgian student. I've been to some decent amount of different countries. (A hike with friends in scandinavia was by far the best)
I am now at a point in life where I realise how important it is to start saving money as soon as you can.
A friend of mine is currently staying in vancouver, Canada. I have the chance to go to him. So I only have to pay for the flight and ofcourse the money I spent there. Flight is around 700 and I'll think I will spend another 300 there in the... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1074529 Are you talking about Euros, or Dollars? Vancouver on $20 a day isn't going to be very good, especially in February or April. What part of town does your friend live in? If they're a student, they might be busy in April with finals
Vancouver is a ok city, in a setting that's great for the 4-5 months of summer. If you're going to go, pick April. There could easily be 20 days of rain in February, but you're probably used to that.
