/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.

I'm going on a 2 month backpacking trip to Colombia from April until June.
The first 3 weeks I will stay in Medellin and follow a intensive Spanish course.

Now what are some places to get good but cheap food in that city?
>missing Boyacá-Santander


>Coke is very pure so be careful not to overdose

not necessarily. a lot of dealers mix it ("rebajar") with other shit.

>Don't use street hookers, they have AIDS. Go to a proper strip club and use a condom.

I'm Colombian. I've fugged prostitutes for over a decade, never caught anything. Prostitutes inside the red light district, be it street or club hookers, get checked constantly by health authorities. At least in Bogota, where I go.

AIDS has a low prevalence in Colombia as in pretty much all of the Americas

When Amerishits are unbelievably butthurt, they always resort to “no, u” because of low IQ
Your compulsion to respond, even afyer being told that is the stated goal, jist shows hiw buttmad, autistic,and low IW you are.
Can agree with this. I was searching for ages for some authentic Italian food. Had to avoid those terrible places with guys out front trying to hustle you in, turned into some dim alley and there was a family restaurant packed to the brim. Sat down and get served the best cannoli I've ever tasted. I still think about it.
I bet you haven't tried Italian food in Chicago. We have restaurants run by Italian families that go back generations. Chiacago became a pizza city on the backs of such restaurants.
Amerishits truly are the dumbest and most butthurt posters when they believe dumb shit like that

Currently in KCMO, it's definitely cheap. There's a bit of cultural life, but if you come here expecting Chicago you're going to be disappointing.
CO and ABQ are cheap, but small so things to do can be limited.

PHX area is getting expensive, doesn't make sense to rent lately, but outskirts are cheap, place is big so something always going on, but lots of retirees.

Monitoring this thread. I'm moving out of Savannah, GA but don't have a destination. It's hard to choose when you have few restrictions. I considered Washington State for a long time because it's beautiful and has a lot of maritime jobs (my line of work), but I was afraid I'd feel unwelcome due to the overcrowding (and: those fucking rents). Considering Durham because I know people there and it's close.
>It's cheap to live there and a lot of shit to do/see

So basically just like OP asked for.

This too.

Can we get a meetup thread going? We used to have one all the time but they seem to have dropped off the radar for the past while.

For all us >>>/trv/lers making our way over the world, it's always nice to meet a local or hang out with another traveller far away from home. Grab a beer, go on an adventure or just do whatever you want to. I've met up with 2 people from /trv/ in my city before for a day to show them around, it was great fun both times.

Probably include some details to make sure who you end up meeting is travelling for similar reasons (Ie a backpacker meeting a sex tourist might not be the best mix for either).

Yeah so for Japanese restaurant I would go with Shunji Japanese Cuisine. It's ranked as one of the top best Japanese restaurants in town which is only located near the Santa Monica area. The street address there is 12244 West Pico Blvd. Now for the best Chinese restaurant that I would definitely recommend dining over at is the Fortune House Chinese Cuisine in which it's just on 6031 San Vicente Blvd, somewhere in the area of Little Ethiopia.
If you like ramen, Little Tokyo has a lot of great places to check out, it's right by downtown. Try out Daikokuya, Shin-sen-gumi, or Orochan. Also get some extra hot curry pan from Curry House to go, makes for great travel snacks.

Also, since you're going to the museum of death, check out Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles, it's maybe two blocks south on Gower street. Open 24/7 and definitely worth the wait if there's a line.

As for stuff to do, take a day trip and go to Santa Barbara via the Pacific Coast Highway and the 101. It'll be about five hours driving time total, but you get to see some of the best coastline on the west coast. Go to the zoo then get a flight of wine or two on main street. There's also two of California's Mission's along the way if you want some museum time.
Mercado is a great Mexican restaurant right off of 7910 W 3rd St, Los Angeles, CA.
Both The Getty and The Getty Villa are very cool. The Broad Museum is amazing. The LACMA aswell.
Hi. Sorry to ask in this thread but... I'm staying at Livermore, CA. I went to the bay area, wharf, and want to go to China Town next.

Honestly... Before I die, I would like to hook up with any average / skinny oriental lady but I'm finding it so hard... Are there any places that I could find one easier? Would pay to help said person but even CL got closed and anyways...bot central and whatnot. Erotica r asks for a lot of stuff to achieve premium.

Any helpful info will be gladly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Has anyone here ever been to China? I have to go there for work for a few weeks later on in the year, and was wondering how I'd go bringing in things like multivitamin or whey protein.

Would they confiscate that at the airport or even arrest me thinking it's drugs, or is it a fairly normal thing to bring in?

Is the tap water safe to drink in Beijing, Hangzhou, and Shanghai? If not, is it safe to shower in?

Should I avoid milk and meat?

Those webms/gifs you see on 4chan where elevators and escalators just collapse, or horrific traffic accidents occur and no one seems to care, are they actually common?

Honestly didn't think I'd be doing too much travelling in my work, especially not to China, and I'm getting incredibly anxious desu.

It's the best possible season to visit Mongolia in and you could easily kill 10 days there, it's about the perfect duration really since you can take it easy drinking amazing vodka and eating roast horse (the national past time more or less) and still have time to go see the things worth seeing.

Mongolia has some nice hiking, fishing and other nature stuff, organise through hostels in UB. Otherwise, there isn't that much to do, two days will cover the palace, temples and musems in UB and a few day or overnight trips and you'll be able to spend a day in the pub and know that you're not really wasting time that should be spent doing cultural stuff.

If you've got wechat, you might be able to use the 'people near you' to find a local girl too, I did while I was there.

Luckily I'm moving out there with my girlfriend, so the "hot chinese girl" problem won't be an issue for me. As for food, I'm not planning on splurging on Western food, I can do that where I already live.

Sounds to me like, since you lived there for a few years and didn't wind up homeless, 20k rmb was indeed enough and you're trying to spook me.

I'm being taxed next to nothing, and my accommodation compared to what I pay in the UK is cheap as hell. I can't wait.
Actually there is some truth to that. I don’t get stopped a lot but when I carry a camera and don’t have a model with me people stare and follow me around.

I’m not a huge fan of his but serpentza did a video on it on YouTube. Old grandpas calling the cops on him and getting stopped from filming in public places. It’s not dangerous by any means but can be frustrating to not be able to do your job despite following the law.
straight up no one likes niggers

the girls that like them are part time prostitutes

you almost certainly don't speak good enough chinese to discern things like intelligence and class
My parents visited Mongolia and loved it and said it was one of the best trips they ever took. My stepdad was an expat in Hong Kong and they spent a week there. It was a group trip and they stayed in Ulaanbator for a few days and then stayed a few days with some nomads in a Yurt on the steppes. They visited the Gobi Desert and rode some yaks and shit. They had a blast.

I was disappointed I didn’t get to go because I had to work.

Pro tip: Bring some of the little liquor bottles that you get on the airplane as gifts. The people on the steppes have little use for money so it’s something that they like that can be used as a tip for their services.

I'm going to Montreal one week from now for the first few days of my spring break and was wondering how the nightlife is. Also, is there anything we should know that is specific to Montreal? (That we can't google?)
Do you have advice on particular hostels or pub crawls (I only saw one pub crawl).

Thank you in advance.
21 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
Montrealer here (though I don't know as much as I should about my own town)

Definitely go to the old port, and all the downtown museums you can. There's a Napoleon exhibit being put on which looks pretty cool.

Depending on how much traveling you're going to do get a weekly opus pass. The metro system is good enough that it's worth it.

My favourite ice cream place is Ripples, which is right near the more well known Schwartz. Be sure to go to St Viateur bagels. Do you speak French? I can't tell personally, but I've heard from only-anglos that it's hard to get by with no French.

Don't go to Montréal Nord.

Will talk to less retarded people and see what they think.
Regarding nightlife, I've seen good shows at Foufounes Eléctriques, on St. Catherine St; bar with live music and DJs rather than big dance club. Several good bars and a lot of cheap and cheerful restaurants on that street as well; gets a lot of Francophone students (Anglophone students are more concentrated on Crescent, I think, or whichever strip runs close to McGill).

Alongside poutine, the city has a very good reputation for its local takes on Askhenazi Jewish food-- alongside their very good and very distinctive variety of bagel, the smoked meat (a cousin to pastrami) is good if you like eating animals.

Other than that, know that it is a predominantly French-speaking city outside of a few mostly anglophone neighborhoods (including Mile End, the areas around the Anglo university campuses, and others I'm not familiar with). All young people can also speak English, generally close enough to fluently, but they prefer to use French and will open in it. So if you don't know any French be prepared to hear waitresses asking you what you want to drink in guttural gobbledegook until you make them switch to anglais. Older people and working class people will sometimes be monolingual in French. But they seemed nicer about my terrible pidgin French than the French did.
I've added this stuff to the list! I don't speak any French beyond saying "how are you" and "hello".

I've heard that French-Canadians don't like it when tourists come to their city and only speak English. Is this something we should anticipate?

Also is tipping a thing in Canada the way it is in the US?
I think the language would only be an issue if you're going to take the bus somewhere. That's the only place where I've heard anglos having trouble. In general, if you stick to touristic areas, you'll have no issue at all. As a side note, I think most people have issues with those who live/study in Montreal yet speak no French. Tourists are given a free pass most of the time.

As for the tipping, basically you're expected to pay around the same amount as the taxes (roughly 15%). Most waiters will go out of their way to let you know if they feel you haven't paid enough. This includes all restaurants and all bars. Fast food might be an exception though.
Im A2 French speaking. When I was in Geneva I would get spoken to in English after attempting to speak French. Are French Canadians better about this?
