I'm planning to possibly visit Paris.

What does /trv/ advise on what to avoid, how to ensure I have a good time without any bs and possibly hotel/restaurant recommendations.

Thanks!

It's my first trip, planning on going with someone but wanted to get some hands on advice from anons.

99.99% of the people who knock Paris are too poor to enjoy it. This is particularly why I like it: it filters out the arrogant white trash who have to escape somewhere cheaper to enjoy their Bud Lights and Heinekens.

For a good time in Paris, I suggest you go with another friend. Stay in Le Marais. Check out Hotel Saint Louis, which is a quaint little hotel in the heart of the neighborhood, just a couple blocks from the Seine. Wake up each morning, head to a cafe. Have a smoke and an espresso and people watch. The neighborhood is quite beautiful and has interesting architecture on the whole so walk around and familiarize yourself with the surrounding areas.

Check out places during the day that are on the typical tourist hit-list like the museums and monuments. If it's in season, go to a PSG game. Go shopping at all the cool little custom-clothing shops around. The fact that you can get clothes you can't find anywhere else on the planet, as well as other trinkets that are handmade by local artisans, is what really made Paris stand out for me. There's an awesome artistic community there.

At night, check out the nightlife in the Marais or elsewhere in the city, as it's fun and has something for everyone.

Enjoy.

>what to avoid
Gypsies, the north of paris (it's not dangerous, it's just dirty and has lots of blaqs) metro during rush hour, taxis (use uber instead) and all the usual tourist traps that you can find in every city.

Try to buy your tickets for museums/other tourist stuff on the internet, lines at tourist sights are always long, especially in the summer.

>>1434697
You really have to go out of your way to find these things, i live in a shitty suburb and i've never seen this

I’m in Vietnam.

I rented a motorbike and today it was stolen. I parked it near other motorbikes right near a Starbucks and figured it was safe, but then when I went to leave it was gone.

In the rental contract it says I have to pay $600 if I lose the bike. The bike was a cheap POS and def. not worth that much. Can I just ghost on them and not pay it, or will the police come after me? The rental place has my passport details (and I plan to stay in VN a while).

I don't fully understand why everybody assumes that a random bike-shop runs a complicated scam operation with street vigilance. No, Is certainly a regular shop since they didn't take the real passport.

You are lucky the contract states you must pay 600, and not any random crazy number they want.

Yes, you could have ghosted if you did it fast and left the country relatively fast.

And It's freaking Vietnam, bikes get stolen all the time. You stayed, and want to stay longer. Go and pay cuz you blew it, end of story.

I've never left the continental US. I want to go somewhere that feels completely alien, where I can experience extreme culture shock. Where should I go? Only requirement is that it's a country with no/very contained terrorism.

China fits your requirements very well.
Especially if you go to a less international city, try Chongqing. Alien and weird.

Terrorism and crime in general are extremely rare in China. The only type of "crime" you're likely to encounter is that nothing you order anywhere will ever be quite correct.
>>
If you want a real positive culture shock that will hopefully enlighten you, visit Switzerland, or Iceland, where people actually made their country and lives better and just watch how far ahead are than rest of the world.
Yeah you can always go to some shithole such as India and swim your way around through a pile of shit and more nasty shit where people are on the lower IQ and self-awareness level than your typical monkey living as well on those streets.

I've been to both. I think they were both very gray and depressing. Similar to Norway as well. I think I would develop depression living there. Due to lack of sunlight and the stoic sarcastic composure of the locals. I'd rather have a warm overly manic/emotion family like Mediterranean nations. Sadly I live In Germany so I lack both the quality of life and the sunlight/happy people.

Im a canadian on a trip to Japan and on my last day I bought some hentai magazines but now i am worried they will get confiscated at the border by Canadian Customs or worst and get myself arrested for CP or something.

I am taking the plane back tomorrow. Should i just throw them away, mail them to myself or is there something I can do to bring them with me without trouble? I only have 2 so they dont take much space.

Thanks for your help and sorry for the weird request.

ironically, I wanted to get a job working in an Antarctic station and it's practically impossible if you don't have satellite technician training from military. Army or Airforce (airfield communications technician) are apparently the only way to get that kind of job.
They do well in telco fields too when it comes to setting up shit in the middle of nowhere.

Other shit is probably useless though.

Hello,

I am living in UK right now, I would like to live in an Island, not a big one, like 15.000 population max could be great, I would like to live in one from Europe, or America, due to my English and Spanish language, I would like to live in a long term of time, like 5 to 10 years approximately, work there, or make a business, et cetera, basically a formal life..., so if anyone has any ideas, what should I do, apart from buy the ticket lol, so every help is welcome.

Your faithfully.

There's lots of Islands in the UK you can live in. I suggest somewhere in the Isles of Scilly
>good weather
>low population (largest Island has less than 2k people)

and you're already a UK citizen so moving there won't be too difficult

I would advise against it. At best, you'll shorten your life expectancy by about 5 yesterday. In addition, your death will be more painful and drawn out when it arrives, assuming you make it to 70 years of age.

Just watch a few videos on youtube.

Chernobyl is literally nothing more just abandomed buildings. You can find many of them anywhere in the world. Just because you need to hold your radiation device it doesnt mean it is different.

They're everywhere in Guangxi... Idk about Hong Kong.

Ask your hotel/hostel receptionist, and don't let them pretend they don't understand the question. Don't bring up "non la", though, it might have some different name in Cantonese, just show a picture of what you want.

China, Japan, Korea; all have electronic scans on your passports.

https://www.jobsforfelonshub.com/can-felon-travel-japan/

Japan is really cares about weed, most asian countries are about the same toughness for felons. Will you for sure get flagged? dunno, but expect to get turned down
>>
Also did you plead out to a lesser charge+probation, or is a felon actually on your record. If you were just charged, but not convicted of any felony; they won't even really see a misdemeanor
>>
>>1436895
A lot, I also went to jail for 6 months

>>1436898
I'm convicted.

>>1436896
While they may have electronic scans, do you really believe the US would share their internal records with China? Maybe they do, but I've heard of others just checking "no convictions" and getting their visa at the embassy.

Main places I'm concerned about is SEA and China. Japan and Korea also seem great but I can take it or leave it.
>>
>>1436901
Passports and criminal records are handled a lot differently than other things, most countries work together to share some of that data between each other. Fairly easy to link shit to a passport that is unique, and each other countries agree on.

You can email the embassy/representatives for countries you plan to visit on what a non violent felony means in terms of travel for exact responses. It is still always up to the inspector/immigrations officer at all times however.
>>
>>1436903
Fair enough. This is the first negative response I've seen in the two years since my arrest which I've been researching this. Most people just say "Canada will be hard, but others, no problem!", so I appreciate a different perspective.

I'm currently living in Newfoundland and want to move, I have family in British Columbia I can stay with but I have to get over there, I have a bike albeit a shitty one, about 500 cad if I sell most of my personal belongings, I'm 18 and look decent so if I have to hitchhike there shouldn't be a problem, any suggestions?
