I'm planning to do a trip to L.A for the next E3.
It's my first time going to the united states and my first time getting out of my country.
My plan is to go a few days before the event and stay a few days after it ends, maybe like 10 days.
I'll pack 3K dollars and a few things for those 10 days (travel and hotel are not included in the 3K budget, it's all for my personal use)

It's the money enough to stay that much time (10 days)?
What things (aside from the main event, the E3) are there in L.A to do?
Any tips?
I'm from Argentina.

It's not that bad, E3 has high ceilings. It's okay just don't expect TOO much, most of the games are "balanced" for the player to win. IMO Pax is probably better for the price you pay, but hey if OP wants to do it let him
>>
>>1336165
The thread was more about everything else in L.A than the E3 itself, I know it will maybe suck or it will not be THAT good, but you know that time when you want to make something, and doesn't matter if people tell you that it's maybe not the best or that you can do something better? But you still want to do it because if it ends being good or bad it's still something YOU decided.

[spoiler] How good is the food there also?[/spoiler]
>>
>>1336219
Not sure what crawled up your ass, was just making an observation, never said you shouldn't go.

>How good is the food there also?
Lot of texmex, and a lot of mexican food. I hope you know some Spanish if you want close to authentic food. Most areas kinda have a trend, china town till be different than little tokyo in LA, but mexican style food will be everywhere. Street food only use cash, can be good but expensive.

Expect stuff to be spicier than what you may be use to across the pond
>>
>>1336219
>how good is the food there
Best Korean and Japanese food outside of Asia, Myung In and Daiko Kuya respectively are really good choices.
Mexican food is fucking everywhere, and is god tier as long as you generally stay away from chains.

Definitely overrated(I say this as a regular) but In N Out is the taste of Southern California.

Good Thai, Good Pho

>>1336225
>>1336221
I'm from Argentina, I literally speak spanish so there's no problem.

Also I love spicy food, IIRC LA isn't in the pacific ocean side? is the seafood good?

thank you for your advice, I feel a little nervous because it's my first time going this far, I don't know what to do.

Hi there!

I'm flying to Las Vegas on December 23rd and will be flying from Las Vegas to Mexico (via Houston) on the 29th.

As I have been to Vegas before, I do not want to spend too much time there. Instead I want to rent a car and drive around and visit some interesting and/or beautiful places. For how many days exactly and where, I have not decided yet.

Since I'll be on my own and since it is difficult to rent a car with winter tires, I would like to avoid places with snowy roads. I have been to the Grand Canyon before and seen some of the national parks in Southern/mid Utah, so neither of these are a huge priority for me.

Other than that, I'm all up for your ideas. Any help is greatly appreciated!

I don't mind something that is 6-8 hour drive away, as I do not necessarily need to stay in Vegas all the days.
>>
>>1336170
>don't want to spend time in vegas
>don't want to spend time at grand canyon or other nearby n.p.s
>don't want to drive in the snow
then why the fuck do you have 6 days in vegas in december?
>>
>>1336205
I booked my tickets long ago and didn't really think about what I would actually be doing there.

I am in Milwaukee right now and direct flights to Vegas from Milwaukee are cheap, so instead of having to spend christmas here alone, I figured I'd do something fun.

Renting a car in Vegas is cheap too

Traveling through the Nordic countries for my first ever abroad trip,
Is there anything I need to watch out for, safety-wise? Specifically spending my time in Stockholm, Oslo and Helsinki

I’ve never left LA as I grew up very poor.
But cool, good to know.

If anything just watch out for pickpockets in the touristy cities.

Can I live for a month in any finnish city with ~2K €?
I mean, in some cheap hotel or similar.
>>
>>1335582
Rent a pre-furnished forenom apartment in any bigger town. Ridiculously expensive but your budget is more than adequate.
>>
look at air bnb
>>
>>1335582
yes you can, we can help more if you give a city.
>>
>>1336141
I know that Helsinki is the more expensive one. Is there a big price difference with the other ones? Also hows the transport to move between cities? I can drive but dont have a car nor I can't rent one.
>>
>>1336171
Turku has relatively cheap rents considering it's one of the bigger cities.
You could rent a flat there for a month, but I wouldn't know how much they charge on that sort of monthly deal, maybe a bit more expensive but still way cheaper than staying in a hotel.
Transportation between any city, town or major settlement is efficent. Check out Onnibus.com, it's a cheap bus company that has frequent service between all major cities.
Trains are good and frequent but expensive and unrealiable during winter.
2000€ will be enough for one month easily, that's actually a pretty common monthly income in Finland for many professionals.

Hi /trv/,
I'm deciding my next international trip in 2018 and one of my options was to make Netherlands/Belgium/Germany, doing this route
Amsterdam - 3d (I know yet most of the city - Rijksmuseum/Van Gogh museum, RLD tourist trap and dude shrooms lmao and one day would be for jet lag recovering)
Delft - 4d (based in a previous thread, some anons suggest it is the most authentic city - plus, I'll use it as a base to know both Hague and Rotterdam)
Antwerpen - 2d
Ghent - 3d (I think someone said I should skip it entirely and going to Bruges instead, so maybe I'll pass 2 days there and make a daily trip to Bruges)
Brussels - 2d (many anons said I should also skip it)
Maastricht - 3d (using it as base to daily trips to Liège and Aachen)
Cologne - 4d (with a daily trip to Bonn)
Hannover - 2d
Bremen - 2d
Hamburg - 4d (with a daily trip to Lübeck)
Amsterdam - 1d for the returning flight.
Maybe I can arrive in Europe in one of the following cities besides Amsterdam: Brussels, Hamburg, Cologne and Dusseldorf. Depending on the price I could cut one day from Amsterdam and put in this city, due to jet lag.
Should I do any ajustments in my route?
>>
>>1336119
Spend 1 day in Hannover recovering from jetlag, or just skip it completely, it's really not that nice in comparision. Spend your jetlag day in Amsterdam with weed lmao XD for max comfy
>>
Three days is way too long for Ghent. Spend 2 days there and use the third one to visit Bruges, it's only about half an hour by train from Ghent anyway. The area around Brussels Central station is nice and should not be skipped,but all other parts of Brussel are kinda depressing imo. So my suggestion would be to spend 1 day to explore the region around Brussels Central station. Alternative cities worth visiting in Belgium are Leuven, Ypres (especially if you're into World War 1 history) or Dinant.
>>
>>1336119
I would highly recommend visiting Utrecht

>>
I have been in Fez, this should be the less crowdy und touristy version of Marrakesh. I made good experience there, good food, nice markets.

My favourite city is Chefchaouen, even greater if you like to smoke. You also can visit farms up there. Had an amazin time there. Also did a a hike to a waterfall close to the city.
>>
>>1335689
it is very safe, only thing you need to be aware of is scams and touts, they are especially prevalent in tourist cities like Marrakesh and Fez (but these are worth visiting regardless). Casablanca has less of them but also not a lot to see in general. It's the economic capital but it doesn't have a lot of culture.
If you can i would recommend getting out into the countryside (especially the High Atlas and the south) a little, because there you find the things that really make Morocco unique. Some more touristy rural places like Chefchaouen can be easily reached and should offer you a different perspective than Marrakesh.
>>

>even greater if you like to smoke
Smoke what? Hookah or hashish?

hash. If you vistit a farm you can even harvest and make your own hash

This question often comes up in Iran-related threads.

If you go to Iran you are officially ineligible for ESTA. But what if you use a different passport? Many fear that the CIA knows everything, and in particular will use the flight database to find out.

Well, they don't.

I've just did it: went to Iran on one passport, then to the US on another with ESTA. No problems, no questions.
Also, went to Israel both before and after Iran.

happy travels.

That sounds awesome, and thank you for sharing pictures. It must be a real blessing to go diving in Belize. I have never dived, but I often hear how wonderful diving in Belize is, and that it is great to visit generally.
>>
>>1335712

Again, thank you for sharing the pics. It sounds better and better, with the Mayan ruins, the diving, the volcanoes. It sounds like you really got your time and money's worth and more.

I have to go for a while, but if I'd love to hear any dining recollections if you have time. You traveled around so much, you certainly must've had some memorable nights out and some interesting food and diners.
>>
>>1335718
I was on a pretty tight budget (diving is expensive). Ordinarily, I would eat at the cheapest/cleanest place I could find by just walking around. In Belize City, there is a little shack in the park downtown that had incredible bbq chicken, rice and beans for $3, San Pedro I usually ate at the Sandbar cause that was where I was staying. Local street food was awesome pretty much everywhere, especially Antigua, Monterrico and Flores and I rarely paid more than $5 for a meal. Local beer is really cheap as well, so food was ridiculously cheap and very tasty. I also never got sick, even though I am prone to getting food poisonng. Hostels are typically $10/night for dorms and rooms $20 to 30 on the cheap.

I don't really nightclub, I'm more into early morning sightseeing so I really can't comment much there.
>>
>>1336087

I see. I'm a little old for the hostel scene. I think it would creep people out. Im sure there are plenty of bed & breakfasts around though.

Have you traveled often? You sound like you know how to get a lot for your money. I'm quite jealous of how much you saw.

Maybe Im lazy. I sort of travel without traveling much, meaning I will pick one spot and just stay rooted until Im satisfied that I know every nook and cranny, every ally and pedestrian off-path. By contrast, you seem to really move a lot, which is understandable too, to see so much.

When I was a kid, I used to tramp a lot in the cities, maybe thats way Im odd about how I visit places. There is something about seeing the same humble desolate corners that only a lost, indigent pedestrian would see that makes me feel connected somehow.

So when you mention cheap local eats, my ears really prick up.

And its nice when you find an actual local diner, not one thats had the crap commericalized out of it.

For example, theres a lot of places in MB that are grossly over promoted as local hotspots for dining. But in reality, there are nice little bodegas all over North Beach you never hear about unless you just wander around looking off the beaten path.

not going to happen if you don't know russian and/or hire a local

even then they're most likely won't allow you to leave the city

and if you do manage rent a car -- you won't be able to cross the border on it because all customs will require you to be either owner of the car or special personal permit that owner allows you to drive his car

oh and forgot the most obvious point -- you won't be able to drive a car period, because you don't have a local license

I was looking at this websitehttps://caravanistan.com/car-rental/ for the car rental where Kyrgyzstan looks like the easiest to find a car rental

>>1336008
I don't mind if a place is infested by travelers, as long as they arn't the annoying white hippie traveler or the smug rich traveler. I had the most fun meeting other college students that were traveling when I was in europe
>>
>>1336027
>international license
even if that's a thing, i don't expect it to be respected by local infamously corrupt road cops.

That site gives some solid looking info abobut local rental though, so i guess you can go with it if you insist.

But i personally think you don't really need a car to begin with.

Kyrgyzstan is kinda small and from what i understand most spots are rather close to city and i think you will be fine just settling in Bishkek and then going by public transport and then hiking up places you want and/or hiring tour guides who can deliver you where you need.

Similarly if you go to Almaty -- mountains are accessible by public transportation (including cable car system). Charyn canyon is over 200 miles away from it so you will need a vehicle to get there (and the road is bad). Kazakhstan is slightly richer country than Kyrgyzstan so there will be slightly more creature comfort and accomodation in Almary compared to Bishkek -- whether you want or it is a turn off -- up to you.

Cheapest big city in the US?

I love NYC, and Miami. LA is alright. All three are super expensive, I make enough to live in them but would have little savings.

Can I get the big city feeling without spending so much?
