Welcome!

/trv/ is a slow board, you don't need to bump more than once a day -- it's OK if your thread is not on the front page, we look several pages deep here. You can do that. too, looking for threads on your topic.

Questions are welcomed, as are threads sharing experiences or generally discussing travel. For very general questions, you can get answers faster at other sites. Google is your friend. Start there, then come back here for specific questions. Some good links for basic info, and a few Pet Peeves of the board, are included within this thread.

/JPG/anon put together an autistic supermap of sights, restaurants, and shopping. Go nuts.

*Info on prostitution*
Please try to refrain from asking questions about prostitution. If you're coming to Japan solely for prostitutes you should probably consider a different country like China or Singapore.
What is available can generally be found in the following links

Many people ask about whether or not the JR Rail Pass is worth it. It depends on your itinerary.
>http://www.hyperdia.com/en/
Plug your itinerary into Hyperdia to determine ticket costs, then compare to the below JR Pass options:
>7 day Pass: 29,110¥ (approximately a Tokyo-Kyoto round-trip bullet train trip)
>14 day Pass: 46,390¥
>21 day Pass: 59,350¥

>https://www.japan-guide.com/railpass/
Super-easy rail pass calculator. Fill in your planned trips, get a quick yes/no response.

Is there a forum to find people living in countries to rent with that will show you around all the destinations? I don't really want anything touristy. I'd like to genuinely get to know the country and learn the language.
I just cut off my engagement and I really want to get out and see Asia. Korea, Thailand, Japan. Is there any way I could find a family or some guy to live with who I could pay rent to live in his home and he could periodically show me around on weekends?

Top 3 best/worst travel vloggers

maxresdefault_live
What's your top 3 best/worst travel vloggers?
Best:
3: Drew Binsky, yeah I know he shills shitholes like pakistan and bangladesh but I like that he's exploring countries like Afghanistan, Papua New Guinea etc...
2. Indigo Traveller, like Drew but he feels more real.
1. Bald and bankrupt, he's NT as fuck, entertaining and he shows us the shitholes of USSR that no one ever goes to.

Worst:
3. Mark Wiens, I just can't stand his ugly fucking face everytime he eats something.
2. Sam Chui, shills shit airlines such as Biman Bangladesh, not sure if you can call him a travel vlogger
1. Lost Leblanc, I just can't stand this ugly cuck and his ugly dwarf girlfriend. He clickbaits, travels to boring destinations such as bali and he's so fucking boring with no personality.

Strategy against sunburn

sunburn
I'm travelling to the Caribbean in a week. Being pretty white (though not super Albino-white), I know that I turn "red" quickly. I'm going to have a well-deserved 3 week rest on different beaches (DR/Colombia/Puero Rico).

What's the optimal strategy to get a well-rounded tan? I was thinking of only going from 8-11 AM and 4-6 PM in the first week or so until my skin has adjusted. Always applying and re-applying sun cream and some Aloe Vera in the hotel room each noon/evening. Any better strategy to run or other things to consider?

Meeting Locals while Traveling

Meeting Locals
What are the best ways to introduce yourself to strangers why traveling? Have you ever been approached or interacted with a fellow traveler?

I usually just meet people at the hostile and go from there since we already have the basics in common. But what about meeting some rando on the street? I'm not looking to pick up chicks or anything like that. I just want to know how some people can break through the local barrier and enjoy the traveling even more.

How has traveling evolved with you + expatting in Bali

unfuck yourself
'Sup /trv/,

Just wondering how traveling has changed for you, over the years, if at all?

>When I first started, I was hardcore backpacking and trying to really save and stretch my money. Eventually, I got to a point where I was in all these new places but couldn't afford to do shit but exist there and eat.

>Then, I started trying to make more money so I could have a bigger budget. I like to travel on a budget, without actually having to worry about being on one because I like the social atmosphere and meeting new people that are more like me.

> Now, it seems that all I really care for are culture and food. After a while, a waterfall is just a waterfall. A pretty beach is a pretty beach, a temple is just another temple. And I hate that I take these things for granted but you can't change how you feel I guess.

Now, I find myself wanting to stay in one place for longer instead of trying to move every couple of days. I like getting to know an area, making local friends and other expats. Anyone else like this?

Is this the point where traveling takes a backseat to other pursuits in life?

Any southern connoisseurs on /trv/?

We're three european duderinos planning to do at 11~ish day long road trip in the southern USA.
The hard part is planning a route, considering we don't know much about the south.

Which cities is a MUST to visit? Also, what is a do-able route?

So far we've been thinking something along the lines of:
Miami -> Everglades -> Clearwater -> (maybe Orlando) -> Mobile -> New Orleans.
Is this a good route? Or are we fucking up by missing Atlanta, Savannah, Charleston, Augusta, Jacksonville etc.

Anywhere left in the world to have experiences anywhere near this?

beach
Just finished reading The Beach by Alex Garland. You've probably seen the movie. In it the narrator speaks about how areas have slowly been taken over by tourists and everyone eventually searches deeper and deeper for the bits untouched by everyone else. But this was in 1990. I know the world is a lot different now, but are there any places where you can experience things like this? To really get away from it all and experience some sort of adventure? Surely there are some places left.

And yes, I know the book ended badly, I'm not talking about living in the trees until it goes all Lord of the Flies.

Prague Advice

prague church
Will be there alone this weekend, and looking at reviews/images tripadvisor and other sites all bars/clubs see in the old town are tourist traps where the alcohol is highly overpriced and filled with drunk teenagers, oftentimes a sausagefest.

Can anyone recommend non-trapsy bars to drink and listen to some live music, and dance clubs to dance in (personally I prefer electronic over hip-hop/R&B), where it's not all just 18 year-old British tourists? Was also thinking of a commercial pub crawl for shits and giggles, are all the bars they get you to dedicated for those tours (nobody else there)?

Thanks fellas!

Can these things be fun? They have a bit of a reputation for being for plebs and boomers and seniors and suburban people. But I dont really mind those people when they loosen up.

I'm pretty shy, but I feel like it's possible a cruise could be pretty relaxing as there's nothing to think about or plan.

The history of East Germany is so plastic and artificial, it had interesting Cold War happenings but it seems so erased, apart from a few museums and memorials. But what about the veterans - I know Rhodesians have weird niche commemorations and parades, but I've heard nothing about GDR guys

This is really the only acceptable way to live your life. I'm almost in a hiring position and I will make sure to turn away anybody who has taught a English abroad, took a gap year, or otherwise abandoned their standard career path to fuck around. Cant wait honestly.

Why do people have an issue with this again?

Also, it’s not only limited to Japan btw. At least not in my experience. Hong Kong women practically make it a statement that they “don’t date Kong boys,” and gun pretty much exclusively for foreigners. Thailand, Taiwan, Vietnam, and Korea aren’t very different either. No experience with China yet. But it seems to be an Asian thing, not a Japanese thing.

Anyone ever have a greater success of forming a relationship or even hooking up with women while abroad?

>If you can't get laid/a gf at home you won't get laid/a gf abroad.

I get that, but I feel like I'm in some weird middle ground. Like I'm no slayer by any means, but I've been called anywhere from a 5-8/10, and every once in a great while I actually get laid. I also tend always at least get first dates via apps (I don't use Tinder as much), but the girls are always extremely basic and I rarely get past a first date.

I don't know if it's me slipping, or if it's just the US these days, but I've always found it easier to strike convos with foreign girls. Would traveling be beneficial for someone in my situation?

General thread as well, share stories and advice.

Myanmar
Let's talk about Myanmar. Sounds like one of the few countries in the region not completely ruined by mass tourism.

Thinking about going there for a month later this year, probably December.

Bagan, Mandalay, Yangon and Inle Lake sound like a decent staple itinerary. Anything else worth a visit?

Would love to add some beach time but Ngapali is fucking far from everything else and not willing to pay 200 USD for a one way flight.

Hello, /trv/.
My wife and I will have Obon off from work and are therefore looking to travel somewhere in South/East Asia. Where are some good, off the beaten path places to visit out of those countries? We like exploring nature and I like getting drunk, so, no Muslim theocracies, please.

I'll be flying to Colorado tomorrow and will be driving from Denver to Las Vegas, visiting all the usual parks in between.

Question is - will I need my hiking boots for this or would comfy sneakers be fine? We will just be doing the main/common hikes in most places, nothing too off-the-beaten-path.

Personal thread disguised as a general

I'm going to the Nation's Capital in August. My current itinerary is ~10 days:
5 days for the Smithsonian/National Mall
1 day for Georgetown
1 day for Anacostia
1 day for the Virginia side
2 transit days

Some questions:

Should I be looking to be spending more (or less) time anywhere?

Any locals have advice on what to do/see or any hidden non-touristy places?

Is there anything to see/do in Baltimore?

Any interesting small towns around the area?

Thanks in advance. And if first reply gay-poster comes back, no, I am not gay. Nip that bud before it grows.

What silly statues to go see, which tailoring shops are legit, how much to pay for short-time vs long-time ladyboys, get tips for prison after drunkenly insulting the King, and how to enjoy the many wallet-draining scams of Thailand, the Land of Fake Smiles.

I have around £100,000 ($130,000). I am happy to live in most places, but where is best for lifestyle/money? I am university educated and have worked in specialised (financial) law enforcement for 10 years. It appears that I am splitting up with my long term girlfriend, and a fresh start would be beneficial. Ideally, much like everyone else, I'd like to work as little as possible but I know that it isn't possible. Based on my family history, I am unlikely to live past 60, so somewhere to sustain me for around 30 years would be great.

Any experiences from anyone else who has taken the plunge to start a new life elsewhere is appreciated.

Considering traveling on my own for the first time to Spain. I'm American living in Florida and have only travelled before to Canada and Bahamas with family / friends. Was thinking of doing a couple cities / towns in Spain over a 2-3 week period. I have family in Santander so would like to stop there. What is the cheapest and most efficient way to travel around ? Train pass ? I was looking at Euro Rail and don't really understand the travel days thing. I'm into drinking and old buildings and stuff. Was also considering maybe visiting a whiskeria while I'm there. Any advice ? Thanks.

Hey /trv/, looking to save a bit of money and avoid checking a bag in for my next trip.

Which backpacks do you guys use?

How to dress in Spain so as to not immediately look like a tourist? How do Spaniards dress during the hotter months? I've heard stuff like they don't wear shorts, don't wear tennis shoes and all that.
My wife(CHI) speaks Spanish so we wouldn't be full American tourist-tier, but I don't want to stick out.

Working while traveling

habait
Is it realistic to travel and work as a chef? I'm not schooled in culinary arts or what ever but I have been working in different
kind of establishments since 6 years back, nothing too fancy really but I know the basics and can manage the working hours and stress.
I'm tired of my job, lack of meaningful relationships and not being able to grow further in the field I'm working in.
I'd like to travel around the world and learn to cook traditional food, local cuisine and finance my traveling hobby in the same time (I will have more than 10k to start with) but I don't really know where to start.
I'm not interested in western cuisine, since that's what I've been cooking.

Is my idea realistic? Where should I start and what kind of countries and restaurants should I aim for?
Anyone else did something like this?

Any good advice/recommendations for things to do in Laos? I'm not interested in all the partying shit in Vang Vieng but I would like to try mushrooms and eat them alone somewhere if possible. Whats the deal with mushrooms, weed etc and is it available everywhere or just in the degenerate areas like VV?

Anything else to be aware of or avoid? All advice appreciated.

Travel tips, share and tell

1
For urban shitholes like LAX and SFO, when you go through security be sure to placed electronics/passports/wallet in a separate tray than your carryon and shoes. Wait for the tray to enter the x-ray machine for a few seconds before going through yourself. Never allow the tray to sit there while you go through security because due to their shit security some nigger/spic might walk up and steal your valuables.

Also try to use the lane with the most white people or near a cop. Nigger TSA agents don't give a fuck when they see you getting robbed.

PSA: most Duty Free are rip offs.

I've been gradually preparing for a trip to the Democratic Congo I want to do (well me and my friend). Looking into it over the past month it looks like a fucking nightmare to even get past customs. You need:

•A personal letter of invitation from a private host, stamped by the City Hall in Kinshasa
•A letter explaining the purpose of the trip, the locations you're visiting, how long you're staying, and hotel reservations
•Proof of funds for the trip
•Professional photos of yourself
•A letter signed by the local authorities in your country
•A stamped "travel permit" to travel thru the country
•And probably a boatload of bribing fees you'll have to pay just to get out the front door of the airport

I ain doing all that shit. What "hotels" am I going to reserve if I even want to travel into the country lol?

So I'm thinking a better idea would be to cross the border from another country. Republic of the Congo is much easier to travel to I hear. And Lake Tanganyika is right across from Tanzania.

Does anybody have any experience or knowledge about walking over the border and what happens?

The notre dame fire has made me realize theres alot of cool shit i havent seen in this world that might not always be here, and were living in an interesting time where you can travel the world for very little money.

Would it be worth it to spend the next few years paying off my shit, selling my possessions, and than travelling the world?

My life has been meaningless. The only love I've ever felt has been from my parents. I've accomplished nothing. As childish as it sounds, I feel like escaping to some foreign country and starting over in somewhere fresh, new and exciting might bring me some renewed hope for my life.

I spent a month in Florence two years ago while studying abroad and absolutely loved it, I particularly enjoyed Sienna when we took a day-trip there. How feasible would it be for me - a young American that speaks no Italian, has no useful skills, and a useless degree - to just make a living in Tuscany?

Anyone have experience with lost or stolen luggage? Just got back from Japan and the luggage I brought with three different souvenirs and one for my sister is missing. According to what the people at baggage claim said it's most likely someone else took it before I got there. One of the guys was pretty confident that whoever took it would bring it back soon and that 99.9% of the time that's what happens but at the same time there's the possibility that the dumbfuck who took it doesn't bring it back or simply just decided to steal it for some reason.

Needless to say I'm pretty pissed right now.

On the other I have a chance to get out of the rat race and start a small travel-based business overseas.

So /trv/, what would you do and where would you do it? You have 100k USD and no real responsibility, family or otherwise. Would you start a taco stand in Costa Rica? A bar in Vietnam? A cafe in Alaska? A scooter rental shop on some island that only Real Travelers© know about?
