And I was told Gare du Nord was the violent place. Heard at least two different stories of people getting robbed there in daylight.
The station was definitely utter shit. Confusing, dirty, smelly, lacking most basic facilities (like fucking benches).
It has like 5 stories facade, but only two are in use, the rest don't even have floors.

Yep, I've been in there to get the eurostar and witnessed 2 separate thefts in about 10 minutes. The migrant gangs grab people's bags or valuables, then all run in different directions so security (if there is any) don't know which one to follow.

They really need to reduce the number of exits, it's not rocket science.

Costa Rica is great, but it isn't super-cheap. $1K/month would be a pretty meager existence.

Same with Mexico--I love it, but I find all the nicest bits of Mexico maybe only about 25% cheaper than at home. I do mostly spend time in cities, though, along with a few beaches--perhaps $1K/mo would be comfy in the sticks.

Philippines or even less-popular parts of Thailand would be doable for an OK (maybe not luxurious) lifestyle on that budget if it doesn't include getting there (expect to pay at least $1K all in for R/T airfare).

But at least in Thailand you have to prepare visa stuff in advance, and expect to leave once for a few days at the midpoint, if you want to stay a full six months. Buy 60 day tourist visa, extend by 30 days in country, hop border, get new tourist visa, repeat.

I've only been to the Philippines on short business trips, so I'm not sure about the visa regime, but I seem to recall that it is pretty generous. Food is only so-so, though. Worst in Southeast Asia.

>general winter vacation thread
I'm heading to Vieques, Puerto Rico, USA for a couple of weeks around Christmas and New Year. Not insanely cheap, because small island (where 'mainland' is slightly larger island), but really relaxed, with the emptiest beaches I've ever seen in the Caribbean. Hoping for a harmless next two months of hurricane season so the villa I rented doesn't get destroyed.

>>1472360
For empty beaches try baja.
Its cheap or often free to camp on the beach as long as want.

So I'm currently in the Peace Corps and living in Jamaica. For our vacation, the US government gives us $35 US a day. Would like to get off the island. What's the best island to visit? Due to being a government employee, I'm restricted from visiting Cuba. My french is okay, and my spanish is terrible.

I can dip into my savings a little, but I'm staying pretty low budget here.

Resorts are nice, but seemingly every one of the 2 million people on this island make it their personal responsibility to make sure you have a good time. Violence is really localized. There's just not a lot of stuff outside of the resort areas, and food is pretty meh.

Depends on what are your interest, if you want beaches, parties, or want to chill and visit some historical places ie. the first church of the ''New World''.

I'm planning to go to Moscow for the VDay parade next year, now that the rouble has gone to shit and travelling there is cheap.
Apart from the parade, I intend to go around the city as well and visit the kremlin, St. Basil's and whatever else they have there.
I know some Russian, is it easy to get a tourist visa for an EU citizen?
Feedback regarding Moscow itself is appreciated.

>>
>>1472313
Price will drop significantly if rouble crashes again (which is quite likely).
Otherwise it's not a bad deal, investing in property in Russia gives much better profit than in Western countries because the property tax is pretty much zero, utilities bills are very low, and you can avoid paying taxes if you rent it out becuase nobody really pays these taxes and nobody cares.

Not OP, but still interested in going to Russia nonetheless.

Is there anything to do in eastern Russia besides visiting Lake Baikal (which is already on my to-do list)? Almost every tourist information I can find for Russia focuses on the west (Moscow, St. Petersburg, Sochi, etc.).

I never realized how hard it is until my sister became one. If you’re not working for a major airline, the pay is pretty shit. You have to be trained on all kinds of stuff from where shit goes inside the plane you’re on to how to deal with hazmat situations. She said she lost around 25% of her hiring class during training because you get tested on everything and if you don’t pass you’re done.

I know a few flight attendants working for the Icelandic airlines. The hours are long, the pay is good, and the days worked in a month aren't that many. I've known of Greek stewardesses who worked for a shabby airline who lived in Iceland, but were payed in Greece. Basically slavery.

I was planning to visit Kyoto and noticed that they have a lot of shrines/temples so I marked a few that seemed to have the highest reviews on visitjapan is there any you guys would recommend in addition to this list or if theres any on this list that isn't worth seeing? I tried to only pick the ones that had a 4.0 rating or so on visit japan since I assume it'd get very boring after seeing 10+ shrines/temples

Sanjusangendo (Temple)
Kiyomizudera Temple
Ginkakuji (Temple)
Kinkakuji (Temple)
Ryoanji Temple
Kurama (Temple)
Yoshiminedera Temple
Todaiji Temple
Horyuji Temple

Fushimi Inari Shrine (Kyoto)
Kibune (Shrine)
Kaisuga Taisha (Shrine)

A couple pointers. Do Fushimi Inari early, like 5-6 AM early. You'll have the place mostly to yourself, with only a few salarymen, students, and shrine staff around. Makes for a very quiet and peaceful walk up the mountain and around the loop.

If you do this, you can also run over and see Kyomizudera when it opens around 7, as Fushimi Inari generally takes about 1-1.5 hours to see and walk the loop at a slow pace. Kyomizudera will likewise be pretty empty at that time, and the lack of massive Chinese and Japanese tour groups really improves the experience at these places.

IIRC Sanjusangendo is just down the street from Kyomizudera, but I never visited it despite staying literally next door, so I have no idea what the crowds are like there.

I'm interested to hear how much does it cost in other countries.

It could describe a lot about the quality of life over there. Or maybe signify where is the best place to live/vacation if you're a cheapskate.

I'll start off with mine:

€1.67/$1.94/£1.49

Fuck you. Home plus is superior. You probably don't even Dokdo. Glass lock up on in this bitch!!!
>>
>>1470116
Just the other night I went to a Home Plus and an eMart one after the other. Almost everything in eMart was ~25% cheaper, they have a lot of good cheap private label stuff (especially houseware). They also do much better ready to eat stuff.

I forget which, but either Lotte or HP was owned by Tesco years ago, and in that period prices went way down (because they stocked it with their Tesco branded stuff) and selection way up (because it's a global company)... and Koreans avoided it like the plague! Unless it's from Samsung/LG/Lotte and marked up 500% they think it's suspect or something.

The low adoption of MVNO cellphones in this country, with the prices in the world (despite being so small and dense), boggles my mind above all else. The MVNO offer ***EXACTLY*** the same service (by law) for about 30% the cost.

Also, protip for Korean supermarkets (and how they maintain the insane prices), even where you see "global" brands like Coca Cola they're all actually owned by one of the Chaebols in Korean (I think LG owns Coke) so they use their monopoly power to keep prices sky-high.

Western finance expat here.

From my experience and observation it seems like Chinese Singaporeans have this weird mix of superiority complex and inferiority complex. Like it's typical Chinese cultural pride/arrogance combined with pride their country is high GDP and ranked highly in education. But then like, everyone is all self conscious about being the descendants of coolies. And Singapore is actually waaay less first world than its reputation (Indians eating curry with their hands, homeless guys trying to sell you wet towels at hawker centres, etc..) Outside the financial district it can be pretty damn shabby.

They are construction workers from Bangladesh and prefer to use their hands. Nothing wrong with using your hands to eat, its what humanity did before they made wooden sticks to scoop or pick up food.

I'm planning to study somewhere in Germany. I was going to go into either Physics or Computer but the problem is that I'm just not sure where to apply. I'm not very accustomed to big cities, so I'd prefer a smallish town vibe.
I'm quite in love with nature as well, so It'd be cool to find a town with parks, forests or mountains in or near the area.
Right now I'm looking at Bonn, Potsdam and Muenster.

What would be your recommendations for small university towns in Germany?

I'm looking to Study abroad in Sydney from February to June. Any advice from others who have studied abroad, locals, or just travelers in general is appreciated

Details:
> 20 year White american man in college
> Can mingle with drinking culture (I look old enough to not be carded at liquor stores or bars in the states)
> Not financially great, but good enough that I can get away with this relatively unscathed (scholarships and grants) all my tuition should be paid for.

Any one have advice on saving money for travel? school tells me to budget 18000 for semester but I know for a fact I won't be spending that much. Cheapest flight I have seen in my brief search was just under $1500. Housing they tell me should be $4500

Also, I'm pretty intent on going, but can aussies weigh in on how worth it it would be to go to University of Sydney? I don't want to end up in a school thats majority muslim/asian. As long as there are plenty of actual australians I'll be happy. I'm looking to see actual australian culture as much as possible and cut past the rootless cosmopolitan shit.

Going there in 2 months for a job interview, what should I expect? Any good overview on the town?

I overstayed my visa by 1 day and they flat out told me I wasn't getting on my plane and I was to be fined 500 RMB everyday I overstayed.

Be cautious, they will not make an exception even though they did for me by a hair since I had a native with me and the female manager thought I was cute. They had me write an apology note and appreciation for the manager and they had me take a picture with the staff.

Hello /trv/ I'm going to ask a serious question, is Canada a good place to live? I'm making a 3 year plan to move out of my country and Canada seems like a good place to start, second, I'm Mexican and I'm 23, I know only Spanish and English, my plan is to learn French which is vital there and then learn Japanese, Italian and German or Chinese, work these 2 or 3 years to earn a descent coin and finish my career, finally when I have the money reserve an hotel room and buy a ticket to Canada, take with me clothes, a lot of instant and canned food and obviously my money, a map of the city I will be staying and my papers, once there I plan on finding a job and an appartament as quickly as possible, I was planning on working as a translator in some editorial or as a translator, preferably in an editorial translating book, magazines and whatnot, how hard is it for a foreigner to get a job there or what options do I have? Also I'm studying psychology and neurosciences but I don't know if my certificate will have value there, would be good to work as a forensic psychologist, no shitposters, no bullshit, I'm serious about this, if you know about some good books to help me learn French and Japanese I would be grateful.

That's pretty impressive.
I'm going to be relocating there in Oct - have a bsc in psych and bsc in criminology.

Was hoping to join police but apparently it's hyper competitive so just going to see what I can land.

Can I ask where you're from? I get the sense it's hard for immigrants to land jobs but it's particularly harder for some countries compared to others. I'm Australian but I'm reading a lot of Indian immigrants are struggling not sure if there's more to it than that or if it's just difficult all over.
