63 KB,
We often joke about 'hard tier' or 'expert tier' countries here when people post threads about typical RealTraveler™ or first trip overseas threads, but i was just wondering which countries other people think as easy or hard to travel to. I was just wondering what the typical westerner thinks about the difficulty of traveling to a country.

Feel free to add to my map, ive just added the countries i know enough about to make a decision, or you can just make your own and post it. Maybe we can try get some kind of constructive useful map in the end....

Filled in some more that I've been to. I'd say most western Europe should be green for sure. In all the Nordic countries English is very widely understood and girls can usually walk around even in the middle of the night and feel safe.
I filled in some in yellow as language can be a problem here, traffic can also be difficult. China is also pretty obvious as the visa restriction regards basically everyone. But maybe we should separate it as it's much eaiser to get by in say Shanghai than in rural Xinjiang.

Hey everyone! My girl and I are starting to plan a trip to New Zealand for early next year, maybe between March and May. Now we live in Australia so we are pretty close but know little about the place. We aren't wanting to be nestled up in the city nor even suburbia, we would like to stay somewhere more natural and mountainous. Somewhere fresh. Does anybody know any nice areas // attractions outside of the typical Auckland etc. Looking for beautiful natural sights to see. Thankyou in advance.

Simple question.
I want to travel to USA for pleasure. I expect to stay there for around a month.

The thing is I'm from South America and I was wondering if I might have any trouble getting in there.
What kind of stuff USA checks to let you get in?? I've heard it is pretty picky with visas and it might even reject you even with your papers in order.
There's no way I'm wasting a single penny before knowing if I might qualify smoothly.

I'm a middle-class teacher btw, in case that counts for anything.

Requirements vary by country, but if you aren't on the cool list you basically have to demonstrate the monetary means to support yourself while here, and the intention of leaving. The fact you are middle class with a job will probably help.
>>
>>1182358

Ehh they will ask to see my bank account or something???
(btw I consider all this process kind of humiliating)

Also how to show my intentions of leaving?

I need all the necessary information you can give me.
To get the visa I guess I'll get some info, but I wouldn't like to waste money there.
Anyway, my real concern is not getting the visa, but having troubles when I'm already there, since they say in the webpage you might be rejected even with your travel visa in order (which is insane).

I would like to visit both Israel Egypt and Jordan all in one trip for three weeks total.

But those places are not necessarily cheap and in order to travel from one country to thr next SAFELY, you'd have to cough up more shekels for domestic flights.

I don't have that kind of cash, my trips are usually less than $2,000 USD... I'm in college and working 30 hours a week but it will still take me some time to save up for this, probably a lot longer than it typically takes me to save up for trips.

Mainer here; can confirm as haunted.
Vibe in some areas is probably more rural and redneckish than you're comfortable with coming from the swamps of the Potomac. Some townships are inhabited mostly by hippies, artists, and summer people -- those are tolerable I guess, good places to raise kids. Then you get places like Rockland and Bar Harbor, where out-of-staters are literally buying up entire streets of houses to rent out to summer tourists. The remaining locals live in homeless camps and ghettos. Avoid.

Flown Hainan air a lot, it's a crapshoot whether you really get Hainan air or Southern Air or Tianjin Air, they all codeshare and it's hard to tell who's plane it will actually be.

Hainan air is probably the nicer planes out of them but they're all budget planes, I think Southern air doesn't charge extra for meals maybe.

The issue is, while you should learn a language in general, you have to double down on it and spend all of your 3 months there to extract as much contact with native speakers as possible.

So if you're learning French, better spend the whole vacation in France.

Had I had the same opportunity as you, I'd jump on German.

Yo TRV,

Camping question for youze guys...

Can i just pick a random spot in a national park and setup camp?

Mainly looking for information on NZ, USA, and CDN parks. I grew up in small rural town where we'd just hike into the woods, pick a spot and start camping. For some reason i feel like national parks might make you go to a campsite and that sounds kinda lame. I've tried googling but all the park sites refer to their campsites.

Not usually. They have designated park campsites for front country and back country camping. In some cases they allow you to set up camp, one mile off the trail.
>>
For US parks, yes, but you need a backcountry camping permit. You can probably get away with camping without one, as long as you clean up your site and pack out your trash. If you're not planning to 100% clean up after yourself in any national park, anywhere, kys.

Where are you from?

Depends on the park in Canada. There's a lot more provincial parks than national. Majority of national parks are north of the 55th parallel and cost thousands to visit.

cleaning up matters, a warden can always find a rule they can catch you in a park if you upset them

The parks close to big cities (banff, algonquin) have designated camp sites, fees, and admittance limits. You cant just sleep anywhere. Break the...

So, I'm planning a City trip to a metropolitan city in east Asia. Currently residing in Seoul and my gf and I would like to go to another big city in Asia for a Friday to Monday trip.

Cities I'm interested in:
Shanghai, Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong.

What is in your opinion the most fitting city for a weekend trip for a young couple?
desu I'm not keen on spending a lot of cash on accommodation and stuff.
Is Shanghai expensive in general?

If you like Seoul, go for Tokyo or Singapore.

If you're bored of Seoul, I would go for something like Changsha or Guilin or so.

Should I get a portable wifi thing before I leave for Japan, or should I get it while I'm in Japan? Can I depend on free Wi-Fi to get me home when in Japan?

If I order it, I'm worried that by the time I'm at the airport the store will have closed, and I don't want to have to waste a few hours of the next day travelling back to the airport to pick up the portable wifi thing.

According to my ticket I should be arriving at Narita at 1800.

Also, what's a good website to get portable wifi things from? I need one that's got unlimited data, fairly fast speed, and preferably nothing over ~$100. I need it for a month.

If a friend and I were to motorcycle through Central Asia (namely Kyrgyzstan, and Tajikistan M41 Highway) , what's the best way to not end up beheaded on Al Jazeera? This fear is due to the close proximity to Afghanistan, and Pakistan.

We're all Westerners, with no grasp of Russian or any of the local languages. If anything it'll be the usual rudimentary tourist books that we're using as a resource.

Enlist in the US army. You'll be protected.....well more so than a civilian trying to travel through some of those countries on your own.

Or were you trying to do like a Silk Road reenactment?

>This fear is due to the close proximity to Afghanistan, and Pakistan.

Dont go near the boarders, simple as that, they dont venture over the boarders because of a large military presence.

The only other place with enough Islamic activity to warrant any concern in the Fergana valley, though they are normally more in hiding from the government rather than being Islamist's (they head to Afghanistan or Pakistan on holidays if they want to attack westerners).

Hi guys and gals, I am going to travel to Marrakech,Morocco in about a week, going to stay there for 6 nights.

I usually like exploring and generally having fun. Usually dont like museums and very touristy stuff, Do you guys have any tips?

Also, can anybody recommend a good and social hostel in Marrakech? I am traveling alone and i dont want to be lonely all the time.

Also, i have heard about a small seaside town called Essaouira ,a couple of hours drive from Marrakech. I am considering spending a couple of days there.

All tips and warnings on Marrakech...

You will never be alone in Marrakech.

Never.

Marrakech is awful, its hot and filled with tourist traps and scams

Essaouira is beautiful, cool ocean breeze and nice surf, i would suggest spending no time in Marrakech, and spending your time in essaouria, there's also a small village near there called sidi kouhkki (or something like that) which is nice for a day trip

alternatively, you could spend a days drive going north to chefchouen, if your into Hash and mountain scenery (but mostly hash)

If you go to essaouria i recommend the Atlantic...

If anyone offers you anything on the street for 'free' do not accept. Expect to pay out the ass even if it's for directions.

And stay away from the macaroon man. Especially the macaroon man.

Go check out the local artisan market, it's a 15 minute walk from the main souk (jemaa Al fna?) Everything there is fixed price and a little more expensive than the regular markets but the quality is real good. There's also a cafe there.
