Hey yall, im "deploying" to Abu Dhabi and from what I understand I'll have multiple opportunities in the 6 months to leave base and explore Abu Dhabi and visit Dubai.

What would be good to know about the places and the culture? What should I do in those places?
>>
Abu Dhabi: ferrari world (fastest roller coaster in the world)
Warner brothers world is another theme park
Yas water world obviously is a water park
All of them are located in yas island. There are also lots of clubs and nice bars on the island.
Louvre abu dhabi museum is new. I havent been there myself but people say its cool.
The grand mosque is worth a visit.
I dont anything about safari tours or what have you that all the tourists seem to wanna do.

I dont know dubai very well. To me its just malls and hotels with the odd visit to my friends.

Anyone here have any experience interrailing?

Going July next year and wondering what cities i should not skip
and things to do. I like nightlife and museums if that makes any difference
>>
>>1478800
>Anyone here have any experience interrailing?
Yes. It's very neat and useful for the Benelux, Italy, France and Germany, but outside of that, it's pain due to the autistic rules they have to make the Interrail ticket count (I'm still truamatized by Portugal's bullshit) in mst countries.

>Cities not to skip
Depends on where you want to go, in terms of area.
>>
>>1478806
I was thinking of mostly going to the south/ part of europe, maybe go from the west to the east.

I start in the Netherlands

>>1478800
Lubljana was pretty cool for nightlife.

For museums:
Florence

I've done two Interrails with InterRailPass's

and then a 2 month travel through Germany, where i found a preordered card that gives -50% on all second class travels, was more worth it. (You can also get -25% and -100%(Not joking))

I'll be traveling to Athens in two weeks. I have a room booked for a few days, and I want to see historical sites, museums, and anything fun around.

What arrangements should I make in advance? Any tickets or reservations I need to figure out? Anything to watch out for?

I'll be going next week and I am unhappy to hear that. I'll be there for three days - two in Athens proper, and the third to visit cape Sounion. Though I am the kind of guy to spend time in multikulti ethnic cafe-restaurant places, so I'll probably enjoy it more.

Are there too many refugees and tent camps? Wouldn't want to look at human misery and ruin my mood if I can avoid it. Out of sight, out of mind.

Not Him but. I've been there, Yes, there are Blacks, arabs and fucking roma trying to scam you everywhere. Nobody Here is saying the WHOLE Paris is a nigger shithole.
Paris is Very big and it has many arrondissements, maybe some people here are omitting or fail to mention that just a few of them are dangerous to walk alone and instead makes people think that the whole city is a war zone ...we know is not that bad, but trying to deny the nigger problem is pathetic

Yeah, it's not about blacks or migrants and you are not concern unless you're japanese.

For Muricans it's Florence syndrome (also know as Stendhal syndrome)
>>
>>1481024
The Paris syndrome has nothing to do with niggers or gypsies. It's about people being shocked that native Parisians are quite the assholes.

I'm from Michigan and I've used the Priceline app with the name your price shit to get rooms. They're usually the Extended Stay Suites. You can cross reference the info on the app with their locations on Google Maps.

Hey bros--
Visiting UK from Massachusetts for 2 weeks with a good friend. Going to London, Cornwall, Islay, Edinburgh, and Newcastle. (3 places would've been better, so less driving, but too late to change).

Any last minute tips/stuff to do/etc.? We're departing tonight. We're going to see an RSC play (Macbeth), visit distilleries in Islay, but don't have much else planned.

I've had my fill of museums (Smithsonian, the d'Orsay, Met, and Louvre) and we generally aren't interested in touristy stuff--more so exploring.

Thanks Britbros!

I'm an anon from Newcastle. I can tell you some nice places to visit, there's a free art gallery near the bus station and a lot of secret bars all over the place. You have to look for specific signs but they supposedly do really nice high end drinks. One of them is near the Weatherspoons pub across the street from the Haymarket bus station, if you've found a street with a travel agents and jewelry shop on it then you've found it. I wouldn't bother with visiting Angel of the North. It's kind of shitty honestly but we have some decent sights and scenery. Be careful walking around the city centre since there's a shit load of homeless begging you for money and annoying student charity collectors doing the same. I have to avoid both fuckers every time I walk into town and they are an absolute nightmare to deal with.
>>
>>1481015

I notice you like museums. Definitely visit The Hancock, they used to do drinks in there but I don't know if they still do since I haven't been in there for years but from what I recall they used to serve beer but the museum itself is well worth a look at. You pretty much can't miss it.

Anybody here ever been to Vancouver before?

I'm going for a few days this September and I was wondering if anyone had any tips on what to see, do, eat, and drink. So far all I have is the usual Seawall, Lynn Valley hike, Granville Island, Gastown, etc. What else should I see?

Oh and, if anyone here is from Vancouver I'd be down to grab a beer or two. Can't beat a local's perspective

That’s the recent wave. I have a feeling you’re either not from here or a transplant. Most middle class and below East Asians, who were born here (which there are a ton of), loathe the recent wave because it makes them look bad. Again, there’s been a ton of Asians here since the late 1800s, it’s not like the popped up over night.

I’m not gonna argue with you because it’s gonna end up an anecdotal pissing contest. Again, nouveau riche mainland Chinese are garbage but it’s a problem with law making that allows this to happen.

Hey /trv/

I'm thinking of going for a exchange program from my Uni probably for 6 months.
Have you got any recommendations on where to go? Should be in Europe. I'm from Finland. So far my top picks are Scotland, Ireland and Iceland, mostly because of the beautiful nature.
What would you recommend?

Hey piggies. I'm going to Cambodia (Siem Reap) and hopefully bussing or catching a ride to Ho Chi Minh city in Vietnam. I know nothing about these places, so i have a few questions. Literally any information you can give me will be written down. Thanks guys

>Has anyone gone between these places?
>Can i visit Siem Reap alone? What do i expect?
>What all is there to do in HCM city besides shoot huge guns and visit the war tunnels/museums? Any suggestions?
>Is it safe to wander the streets at night?
>What are some good places to stay at?
>Will i be using mostly US currency or Dongs/Cambodian Riel?

And most importantly

>What is your favourite memory from these places?
>>
There is a guy on here that likes to post pictures of his asian penis. Will that help?
>>
I took a train from Bangkok to go to Siem Reap, cost about 3€. You can fly from Bkk to HCMC for about 25€ with Thai Lion Air. Worth considering maybe.

Siem Reap is very touristy, if you stay in the center you will be fine at night as well. Just pick any hotel there, less than $30.

Pay in local currency, everything will be cheaper. HCMC is mostly a business city. There is an old post office, some markets, small streets. Good food though, really. Street food and coffee is best in Vietnam. If you get bored, just fly to Ha Noi by VietJet or go to the beach ior Da Lat.

I always picked well-rated hotels from booking.com, btw in Cambodia the taxi driver will tell you that this hotel you booked is far outside, full, or under renovation. He will then offer you his friends hotel, which happens to be cheaper. I accepted once, actually got a good room in the center of Siem Reap.

I was also offered 16yr olds and ecstasy in HCMC at 3am. Veery shady, but I was never robbed.

How does /trv/ go about planning their travel?

What's your process like from the start? Pick a destination first, or find what's affordable?

How far out do you begin planning? Accommodation bookings? Trains?

I'm taking my first extended trip through central/eastern Europe this winter and feeling sort of overwhelmed. I want to ensure accommodations & travel, but I don't want to plan too far ahead and become locked in.

Depends on the trip.

If I know I want to visit a specific destination, and around peak season, I book the flights and accomodation as soon as they go on sale (typically a year in advance).
However I mostly go to places shoulder-season or some off the map places, so I don't normally book anything more than a couple of months in advance.
We have separate travel money accounts with my friends, and constantly keep in touch to see who has what budget and how many days each of us has off. The moment some of us can have some time off at the same time, we book something.

Central and Eastern Europe tend to have more accomodation that what tourists can fill, so you do not need to worry about booking accomodation as long as you are not tied to a specific uber fancy hotel.
>>
The only thing you need to book on advance is your flight. Everything else can be done the night before. Europe especially is fucking piss easy to navigate, millions many of whom are less intelligent than you have beaten the path out for years.
>>
>>1479326
>less intelligent than you
doubt it, I can't focus on planning my trip for more than 10 seconds without getting distracted
>>
Usually narrow down to one country I definitely wanna see. Then look at where nearby I can also go to. I usually begin looking a good few months in advance and plan bit by bit. The plan nearly always changes in practice though but hey, its all part of travel
>>
>>1479112
>I get drunk on a Thursday of Friday evening
>start browsing skyscanner
>book a random flight departing next day
>wake up to a fucking alarm
>wait wtf I actually booked that?
>oh well it's a weekend in X
>time to head to the airport and book a hotel while on the train

That's my usual weekend and trip planing... Even if it's a 3 months trip I don't do more in advance. I have a credit card, I don't need a plan.

I've had multiple aussies I know show me their speed tests, almost none of them have exceeded 5mbps, most hover around 1-2. They tell me it's not even worth trying to use during peak hours, shit just takes forever to load.

>>1480894
Yep, so the average is somewhere over 25mb/s right now and climbing rapidly as the nbn kicks in. Not saying thats great, but for every one on 5mb/s theres 5 times as many getting 5 times that speed. The people on good speeds aren't out there complaining.
