>I live in and drive a motorcycles in Vietnam. Couldn’t imagine China is half as bad.
Ironically, because Vietnamese police are far more corrupt than Chinese police, Vietnamese use their helmets and avoid making illegal turns. Chinese police don't get to extract bribes from people for doing this and social harmony means that they don't want to make waves by cracking down on stuff (much) so they tend to just ignore those sorts of petty violations.

Epidemic corruption makes Vietnamese city streets safer, truly.

Another shout out to BA, I enjoyed this city. Except crossing 21 lane roads.
>>
>>1419089
It is worth spending a night there, I doubt the crossing will be complete.
Exception is if you have been to Las Vegas, I haven't been and was impressed, the ruins and eggs tarts are nice.
Not worth more than 1 night, you would be bored if 3 days or more as there is not much to see, but as a day trip with night in casino it is great.
Bus shuttles from ferry port and in between casinos is free.

Alright /trv/ me and some friends are trying to decide between going to Belize to really explore the nature or Colombia for more of a city vibe, specifically Cartagena. So just a general information thread about both just so I can start getting a better idea
>>
How long? Belize is a pretty small country.
>>
>>1419947
Just an extended weekend so like 4 days max
>>
I can't really tell you about them since I haven't been there but as a colombian I can offer some tips if you do decide to visit Cartagena (which is full of cultural shit). All the stuff you take with you leave it at the hotels you stay in. When going outside, go outside with only the necessary shit. Leave your papers behind, and carry small amounts of cash moneys. The city is chock full of pick pockets, and the occasional thief; both of which are avoidable by common sense. Carry little and don't make yourself seem like a "rich tourist gringo" and don't walk into ghettos, or lonely places late at night. Other than that, I've heard the place is great, and if you do come, enjoy! If you plan on travelling Colombia more I recommend going to "El Eje Cafetero" for the old timer towns, the beautiful mountain ranges, "El Parque de los Nevados", coffee, and the food. And do NOT go to the capital (Bogota), that place was/is a shitfest. First day I went there I got mugged, lol.
>>
>>1419831
Cartagena will be hot as balls right now. Still pretty, but b ready to do more in the evening and less in the noon-to-late-afternoon time frame.

I'm considering doing Asia this August with my girlfriend. Initially, I was set on Vietnam or Thailand and hitchhiking around, using trains or whatever. I realized that you can fly to Georgia or Kazakhstan for cheap from Europe and I'm wondering if it'd be an amazing adventure to attempt to hitchhike/bus/train to India or further from there and fly back to Europe at the end.

I'm a bit worried it might be a bit of a hassle with all the visas along the way (Polish passport) — especially Pakistan, and other possible risks. Also, I'm wondering if there would be lots of boring landscapes along the way with nothing going on for days in some parts.

Could I get some opinions or other possible fun ideas for a month-long Asia trip in August?

Thanks /trv/

I don't get the appeal of traveling. With the help of today's Internet it's so easy to just look at very immersive videos, pictures, vlogs, etc. I don't see how experiencing those travels physically would differ from just experiencing them through a screen. Can you guys change my mind?

The very idea of wanting to or liking "travel" is a pretense.

You travel for a purpose usually; to see historic sites, to see natural wonders, to try food, etc

So your real interest is history, food, nature, etc and travel is just a means to do those things

But liking "travel" itself means what exactly? You enjoy the act of physically transporting yourself to other places? No, no one travels simply because they enjoy airports, airplanes, trains etc If you move somewhere, that isnt travel. Talk to people? You talk to people from different countries everytime you come to 4chan.

No, people who say they like to travel like one thing above all else: that pretense of saying "I've traveled the world, look at all the countries and places I've been to ;). Praise me and be jealous"

The very idea of wanting to or liking "Money" is a pretense.

You want money for a purpose usually; to buy consumer goods, to experience and consume services, to buy food, etc

So your real interest is consumer good, food, services, etc and money is just a means to do those things

But liking "money" itself means what exactly? You enjoy the act of procuring green pieces of paper? No, no one works simply because they enjoy pieces of paper, currency, cheques etc If you make money, that isnt consumption. like numbers on a page? You see numbers on a page every time you come to 4chan.

No, people who say they like money like one thing above all else: that pretense of saying "I've a lot of currency, look at all goods and services I can potentially acquire ;). Praise me and be jealous"

If you would be truly willing to entertain this request, I ask that you look at immersive media of the Grand Canyon, and then travel to see it in person. Please let us know if you felt any difference between the two methods of experiencing the same site/landmark. Experiencing places, people and things through media can be is informative, but experiencing them in person is much more likely to be transformative.

How dangerous are Canadian highways and wilderness regarding violent maniacs, specially western provinces (BC)?

I'm seriously asking this because i always hear from people on /int/ about supposed "shittons of disappearances" and serial killers and shit.

It would be a huge killjoy for me since i was planning to immigrate a few years from now and i would like to have some nice opportunities to spend my time with comfy night drives/strolls.

many people die in car accidents every month right

Not OP, but I can't understand why people have to compare all the death numbers to car accidents. If I am dying because of a car accident my last thoughts would be, "shit, I got unlucky, but I couldn't have lived without driving a car". My family and friends would possibly come to terms with that.

Now compare that to being tortured and killed by a psychopath. Imagine the pure fear and agony during my last moments. My soul shall never rest in piece.

Yeah or you could be bleeding to death for hours alone on the side of a highway, spend a week dying of septic shock in a hospital, or spend the rest of your life as a retard or quadrapalegic

And the serial killer might just shoot you in the back of the head

If you're mainly trying to save money it will be much cheaper to fly once inside Mexico, from Tijuana to Cancun or somewhere like that. You've already found a very cheap option to fly from Vancouver to LA at like half of the regular price.

If i'm lucky theres a website for the vancouver airport "yvrdeals" and they had flash sales to Mexico City one way for $100, but i missed the chance to jump on it, but scrolling through the website it seems to cycle through so within six months i might be able to get a similar deal and save a fuckload of money.

What is objetively the optimal path to travel from LA to San Fransico?

This. PCH takes like more than twice the amount of time than the 5
>>
>>1417971
As a San Franciscan who goes to LA a lot, I'd argue that the optimal route is by air, possibly not to LAX depending on your final destination (my personal favorite SoCal airport is Long Beach, distantly followed by the viciously suburban but rarely crowded Santa Ana/John Wayne.

But in all seriousness, the 1 is beautiful for much of its length, but can be nauseating in many stretches. I recommend it at least between SF (actually somewhat North of there--it is really pretty in Marin and a few counties above) and perhaps Carmel, but the effect has sunk in by then, and it's just a slow, twisty highway. Do a few hours of it and cut inland, in my opinion. The 5 is nasty but relatively fast, as is 101.
