Welcome!

/trv/ is a slow board, you don't need to bump more than once a day -- it's OK if your thread is not on the front page, we look several pages deep here. You can do that. too, looking for threads on your topic.

Questions are welcomed, as are threads sharing experiences or generally discussing travel. For very general questions, you can get answers faster at other sites. Google is your friend. Start there, then come back here for specific questions. Some good links for basic info, and a few Pet Peeves of the board, are included within this thread.

I'm German and would like to go to New York City with my girlfriend over the Christimas holidays. We'll be flying from Munich or Frankfurt, we'd like to spend about 7 days there and we can basically go between the 25th of December and the 3rd of January or so.

Do you think that time of the year is good to travel to NYC and would could be potential downsides? Is seven days a good time span or should we try to spend less/more?

what's your budget?
big thing about budget is it controls how close to the city you're going to stay, if you're willing to commute 60-90 mintutes into manhattan it isn't too expensive

I have a friend who met a mexican girl on facebook and video chats with her daily.
He is flying to san diego to meet her in a few weeks (she lives in tiajuana).
Does this seem really suspicious to anyone?
I wonder if i should say something. He is an older guy and not super worldly.

Post best pics from where you've been. Say where it was, say something about it if you want to do that. Check backup to answer questions anybody has about where you were.

Pic of inside a "gumball machine" in Kamakura, something about the image of the huge sacred Buddha they have there being dispensed in a super-bouncy-ball just seemed to capture a lot of Japan to me.

I'm considering going for a trip to southeast Asia. Maybe two weeks in Thailand and two weeks in the Philippines.

I'm not worried about Thailand, but i've been thinking about costs and safety in the Philippines. Anyone with experience? Is food/transportation/etc cheep there? Should I get a hotel or is Airbnb fine? Is it safe to walk around?
>>
>>1304789
philippines is super cheap even before you know how to haggle
hotels might cost twice as much, but that just means it's $30
unless you stay in mindano it's safe to walk around
>>
Filipino here.

Food is cheap.
1 dollar per meal in Manila. Less in other areas.

I don't have experience with airbnb but I used to rent an apartment there. I costs 100 USD for 1 month.
Lots of public transportation (jeep, bus, tricycle, train).

It's safe but you still need to be aware of your surroundings. I don't recommend walking in Manila. Unless you know some people there.

Avoid Mindanao right now because of war.

Just research and visit the following places...

Just Metro Manila as a transit point.

I do it all the time. I can't help myself when I'm on my phone at the start and end of the day lying in bed. Sometimes I'll do it when there are one or two people in the room but I think they're asleep. People have definitely noticed at least once.

I've been using these a lot this year for business travel accommodation. It's good but sometimes the hosts let it down. They don't seem to have any system to penalise hosts who waste guests' time. Thoughts? Experiences?

Last month my gf and I drove to Idaho for the eclipse, we stayed at an airbnb every night. For the most part is was fucking fantastic. We stayed on a working farm right on a river. It was fucking legit. We didnt even see the owner, they just left the place unlocked and we just drove onto the property and made ourselves at home.

>>1305246
A lot less. Of the 4 places I stayed at, I only saw the owner at one place, and that was because they were having directv hooked up and she had to let the installer in where we were staying. The other places the host would have the keys in a lockbox.

He's exaggerating, but some places like New York have a problem with Airbnb, so much they banned it

Couldn't find AirBnb place situated in Iwamoto-cho station, Tokyo. GoogleMaps and AirBnb directions didn't make sense. Furthermore, the owner didn't bother to take a picture of the building's fascade; didn't even reply to email inquiries. Took my group several hours to find the place. The room was sufficient, though. Nothing to complain.
>>
>>1305862
One time the host gave me the wrong address, she knew it was wrong and didn't even bother changing it. Had to walk 2 km to find the place, which turned out to be a pretty little house that looked every bit an abuse of city building regulations. Owner was a crazy vegan antifa girl. She irked me so much I ordered a steak from a take away place for dinner.

Hey /trv/

Heading to Bangkok in a few weeks. Staying in an AirBNB close to the Sukhumvit BTS.

I don't really have a plan as far as what I want to do. I know people usually gravitate to the reclining Buddha or Khao San road.

Anyone can provide some interesting places to visit or have any good tips?

Went to Berlin last month. I had originally planned to stay for a week so i mostly just did some basic sightseeing on my first day. On my way back to my hotel i saw a group of muslim looking fuckers staring at me. I was so mad i immediately cancelled the rest of my trip and took a plane back home. Fuck you Merkel for ruining the entire continent.

How much have you come across anti-tourist sentiments while traveling?

This summer I was in a few cities which might get a few too many tourists (Barcelona and Lisbon) in particular. I never got anything personally, but I did notice anti-tourist graffiti (especially in Barcelona).

How much is tourism a legit problem and how much of this is just leftist angst?

I was mistaken for Chinese the last time I was in Japan. Not even in a negative context; an airline attendant was having trouble understanding a Chinese passenger, so she asked me if I could interpret for her.

There were no obvious signs that suggested that I could be Chinese. I think the only reason she asked was because I had a Canadian flag on my backpack (many Asians in Canada are of Chinese descent, especially on the west coast).

You can't be serious. Those who have a legitimate beef with shitty tourists are the ones who will be trying their hardest not to be "that fucking tourist."

What's a good big lonely city to live in? One where people will leave you alone, somewhat safer (or safer than most big cities) and so on. Tokyo seems ideal for this, a mega city just to get lost and hide in

I don't know what happened.
Somewhere between 16 and 21 I turned into a man despite never really stepping outside and living my life during all of that time. People treat me like I'm a dangerous drug addict or something, but I'm just a virgin nerd.

My mother got cancer when I was 18, and I realized that I couldn't love her with the force that I wanted to, and I would inevitably stop caring that she ever existed.

I think something sort of broke in my brain after I saw what was in my soul.

I also haven't spoken to anyone meaningfully IRL in 3.5 years, so I feel like I've mentally been getting older and older. On top of this, my sister always told me I was "mature" for my age even though I don't know what that means.
