I went to Thailand in 2 years ago with 11 of my friends. Its fun I would say depends where you go though and what you are looking for. It has great nightlife in places, some nice nature especially around Krabi and koh Lanta and is pretty cheap. Should be pretty easy to meet other backpackers too Id say its worth going. The big cities are the dirty parts btw

As a local I have had no trouble doing trips like that non-stop. I'd recommend a visitor break up the drive with one or two stops. For example:

Wanaka - Te Anau - Take a break in Kingston
Milford Sound - Queenstown - Take a break in Te Anau
Fox - Wanaka - Take a break in Haast (note no cell coverage in the area though)

Google Maps is pretty good for recommended driving times, since Google can track every Android phone. Just add on some time for breaks / sight seeing and you'll be fine.

>>1314040
It's not difficult to do in a day. Leave Christchurch around 9am, do a short walk in Arthurs Pass and get lunch there, drive to Hokitika Gorge and do the short walk there. By then it'll be late afternoon and you'll be able to drive to Fox (or Franz) in time for dinner.
>>
>>1314040
I did a very similar trip to you in 2 weeks before and it was amazing. Only real difference is on the first day we drove up to Punakaiki and stayed there for a night on the first day (Te Nikau Resort is great and cheap)

We did the Pancake Rocks the next morning and then stopped in Hokitika for lunch the next day and walked down to the beach. Only real problem is we didn't have time to do the Gorge. Made up for it doing the Blue Pools on the Haast Pass though,

If you have any questions about things to do in the cities just ask. Also go to BookMe to book all your activites. You can get great deals. For example I got my Milford Cruise for $35. You'll pay double that at if you buy it on the spot.

>Day 12 Hooker Valley Track

The Hooker Valley track is super short, it's only about a 2h walk (3 if you take your time). It's not really a whole day activity. If you can, do it as early as possible in the morning. It's very popular and it takes away from it when you're in a lineup. For reference I was staying in Tekapo, and we woke up 5ish in the morning in order to get started at around 6:30. The whole trail was deserted (except for wild rabbits everywhere) and we could watch the sun rise over the mountains at the start of the walk. Lots of avalanches that you can watch run down the mountains too. On the way back it was starting to get pretty crowded with loud Chinese tourists. It was a completely different experience when it was morning.

If you go /out/ it's a great state for it. Even if you just live in the suburbs you can still find /out/ activities to do within walking distance. Tons of rivers and lakes for kayaking & canoeing, tons of nice parks. Always shit to do if you're into that. Weathers been getting pretty weird cause of climate change though. A few years ago was our coldest winter since 1910, then last year we barely got any snow.

In conclusion great state for out activities and lots of great people but don't come if you're a pussy who's afraid of the cold.

You sound like a total pussy. First of all it's hot as fuck in summer and really temperate in spring and fall, basically perfect conditions. So, you're flat out lying/wrong about 7 months.

I'm planning a three week trip to Southeast Asia in December but I don't know where to go.

I'd like to hear any suggestions on where to head if I'm looking for warm places off the beaten path.

I have been to many of the backpacker places already and would like to see something different this time. Are there places in Myanmar for instance that have just been opened for tourists recently?

hanoi is great, hue, hao long bay is worth, saapa is ruined but the area around it is good

siem reap is a tourist trap, but a good one.check out the OTHER temples, kep is nice, north of the capital therei s a nice town on the river with a big bamboo bride (seasonal)

intensive faqrming was already hurting the land, which ive seen many times result in government pushing farmers out to make way for tourists like in china, forcing locals to become dancing monkeys

Any truth to this?

I suggest Hong Kong. Great choices for food and shopping, and there are great hiking spots too if you're into that. Also, if you like gambling you can take a quick visit to neighbouring Macau. You can easily experience all HK has to offer in 4-5 days so you can visit other places as well.

Europe is fine as well. Western Europe noone will notice you and if you stick to the big cities in eastern Europe no one will really give a fuck either. You can get dirty looks anywhere, just gotta ignore it. As long as you're polite and considerate the fault is never yours.

That said, you will likely do better with all the blonde European backpacker chicks than the locals. But the locals are still within reach when they realize you are Western, and customer service will be fine, as well.

Hey /trv/,

Me and a buddy will be passing through Moldova from November 12 - 15 or so. As I understand it, there's not much to do unless you just want to experience that gritty post-soviet aesthetic. Otherwise its boring as shit. I was planning on visiting some bars or cafes, maybe doing some shopping at an open air flea market or something and maybe seeing if there's any museums open to the public. I also wouldn't mind doing a day trip up to Transnistria seeing as it's probably one of the most obscure de facto states in the world and apparently they have some pretty impressive brandy.

Looking for some suggestions to really round out my time there. Can anyone recommend anything if they've been before? We'll also be passing down into Bucharest and Thessaloniki, too. Any suggestions welcome.

Pic unrelated.

Seconding the wineries; Moldova makes some of the best wines in "new Europe" and there's is the worlds largest wine cellar in a cave.

If you want cheap, good local food go to one of the La Placinte restaurants.

Seconding La Placinte, wasn't too bad.

>>1314239
Are you an Asian-American dude who travelled before starting his job at a famous tech company?

Your itinerary sounds like someone I met in Vama this summer.
>>
>>1314268
Moldova you can get by on Romanian/Moldovan or Russian (you will probably be fine with English). Same kind of goes for Transnistria, however most people don't care to speak Moldovan/Romanian there and some seem to pretend they don't understand it even when they do. English will be a lot harder there.

Transnistria is cool to visit. Everyone says to get the brandy from the Kvint shops. The vodka is way better. Get Kvint vodka. Protip: If you want more, you can get it in Chisinau anyway.

I can't really recommend anything to do in Transnistria other than get some shitty postcards and stamps, convince the post office to give you change in their shitty plastic coins, drink vodka, and walk around Tiraspol. You can score some cool Transnistrian flags at the market and drink nice wine. You can also go to the fake Fornetti stall but that might not mean anything to you.

Go to La Placinte in Moldova for chain style Moldovan food - its always a good bet and you can get cheapish red wine.
>>
>>1314134
Also, Muzeul National de Etnografie si Istorie Naturala in Chisinau is a good museum to visit. They have great bad taxidermy and the worlds saddest petting zoo.

It really depends. It's nice to live in a city, especially in the north, but I think medium-sized towns are better. Many people choose to live in a borgo (pic related e.g.) because it's peaceful and beneficial to your soul, even if it can't offer the same opportunities of a city. But it definitively facilitates creativity, art, thought. As for the rest, living in Italy is just like living in any other European country. You have to deal with the refugees issue, job offers are very few, politicians are shit. But everywhere you look there's beauty and meaning.

Aby advice on what to do/see there?

Is San Francisco becoming similar to NYC pre Giuliani? the tech fags imo are the worst part of the city but to me I see a lot of resemblance to pre Disney NYC. Either super wealthy or seedy asf with little in between.

I'm from a city called Fresno which is smack dab in the middle of California so I've been to both SF and LA and most other major cities other than San Diego than I can count, but have never been to NYC so I might just not know what I'm talking about.

put them in my backpack and give no fuck.

So I'm currently about to acquire a second nationality by descent, though they are both EU citizenships of equally developed neighboring countries and they hardly differ when it comes to visa requirements in the world.

I would like some anons that have exploited multiple citizenships to comment on the potential benefits.

I know that they can be useful when it comes to visiting different territories that have certain disputes (of recognition) but I'm wondering whether it's also possible to use them to extent one's visa-free stay for example.

Let's say I'm travelling to Canada or whatever country with passport A then stay there for almost 3 months visa-free leave Canada and enter it again with passport B to stay another 3 months. Is this still possible in this day and age?

Has any Anon ever done something like this and this and does it depend on the level of development of the involved countries?

However, I don't like this city as much as I thought I would, and so I want to settle in another place. Which European cities / countries can you recommend that have interesting things to see on a daily basis and aren't too expensive? (I'm renting out airbnbs on a weekly basis).
