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.

if thats after flights, accomodation and JR pass yes thats definitely doable. I assume at least after flights, but if either of the other 2 still need to be payed i would say your pretty fucked.
If its after all them then thats what $30 a day?
$15 in food, $5-6 in other transport, that will be most days. with a few having something like a temple or such that might be another $5
So you could go higher on food, or use that saved $10 each (most) day to have other bigger days.
If you could manage to get another $200 or so you could really not have to be too frugal at all honestly.
>>
>>1482795
Yes, it's after flights and stay.
Not planning to get a JR tho. I will buy a Suica when I get there and maybe a chip for my phone to have internet. That's it. Was planning on charging the Suica with like, 5000 yen.
I already went to Japan once and I spent almost 2000usd, but I bought a lot of irrelevant and unnecesary shit, also a wacom and a phone.
Now I'm a little short on money and don't know how the prices are now.

So are you doing 3 weeks in tokyo? Or overnight buses to other cities? because even they will make the budget a fair bit more difficult.
Prices for Airbnbs are a bit worse, but if you do hostels they are the same (only changed by whatever exchange rate is now compared to then).
Honestly if you have been there already you should have a better idea than anyone here if your budget is enough. Because you should have an idea of what you spent for food, drinks, snacks etc, how many little temples and such you went to and how many days you used public transport a bit (assume $5-6 each big day of that).
If you can do with the $15 or so for food and $5 or so for transport each day the extra $10 you have left over should pay for any temple and cheap attractions plus probably intercity night buses if you plan to visit kyoto/osaka or hiroshima. Plus you could sleep on said bus and save a night of hostel costs putting $20 back into your budget (or it pays for the bus i guess).
Still like i said, if at all possible even just like $150-200 would make it so much easier

It's doing its hardest to suggest flights that do not clash with each other or have too long of a layover. Google has no way of knowing you are willing to spend for accommodation on Nov 7-10.

Are you saying you don't work AT LEAST 16 hours a day? Come on, if you want to move up the ladder, you'll have to outdo legends like Ian. Scientists claim that 8 hours of sleep is necessary, but we all know an extra hour means more work can be done. 1 extra hour a day can give you an extra day's worth of work per month.

A very specific brand of abrasiveness that's fun in small doses, but never stops at that.
My experiences with Aussies so far has been that a lot of you get massively drunk, start throwing around/breaking shit, start picking fights with people, scream hugely unfitting things in the middle of the city, and then have the attitude that anyone who has a problem "just can't take the banter", while trying harder and harder to trip people's switches.
It very quickly goes from "lovable goon" to "public nuisance who tries to guilt and threaten you into dragging him along".
Confrontational, hostile, aggressive and with the gall to treat it as a good thing, and then they of course have you act as a meatshield in case someone actually comes to teach them a lesson.

Also awful for different reasons are Sydney people. It's like how people in Paris and London are arrogant, trying to hard to be cool and really materialistic. The difference is French and British are passive aggressive as fuck, so if they think they're better than you they'll at least avoid you, roll their eyes and shut up. There's no sound more grating than some spoilt Sydney bitch complaining she isn't getting 5 star treatment and shrieking at the top of her voice.

This is my experience with Canadians as well. I think years of being told they're good tourists went to their head, and now 20 somethings who are traveling for the first time actually believe they're great simply because they're Canadian.

Canadians have a white savior complex worse than anyone, and they push it while pretending to be the humblest.

Hey /trv/ i've recently been fortunate enough to have gotten the opportunity to do a study abroad semester in Ireland, specifically in Dublin. I've never been to Ireland before and don't know much about it. I was wondering if any Irish anons could help me out or give me a quick run down of this place. thanks!!

UCD is a bit south of Dublin, like train or bus distance. Are you getting student accommodations or have to get your own place? Everything is Dublin is pretty expensive to be honest but that comes with the territory since its the capital and very touristy. If you are American think about how much NYC costs to eat and drink but change it to euro, similar buying power but you are spending more vs USD if that makes sense. Travel is easy, either get on a train to like cork, galway, or belfast (You do not need your passport to cross over to NI right now, but depending on brexit that MAY change but unlikely). Flying is easy just take the bus to the airport and fly off on your passport, it all comes down to money. Dublin city center itself has tons of amazing bars, an entire section is called the Temple Bar, another that I really like is the Brazen Head which is old as fuck but still kinda touristy. There is the Guinness storehouse but that is kind of overrated. The Jameson Distillery is okay if you like whiskey. Overall any irish pint will taste far better in ireland than anywhere else.

Also keep in mind the climate, its a bit like Seattle where all it does is fucking sprinkle rain, rare sunshine, then gets windy and chilly for the winter. If it snows then they city pretty much shuts down and the students burn down a lidl.

Also when speaking to anyone from the south please keep in mind that the Troubles were a NORTH thing. Politics regarding that often depends on the religious background of the person you're talking too.

>>best things to see or do either inside or outside of dublin
Guinness brewery has a good name with tourists. Don't know much else in the city but think the college organises walking tours and shit for the internationals. Plenty more to see outside Dublin. Cliffs of moher, giants causeway and Glenalough are the main ones that come to mind. The West coast is nicer overall in my biased opinion. If you like history and nature you're in the right country though
>>what are the people generally like
The students are sound enough. There's plenty of foreigners spending a semester so you won't be the only one out of place. Campus is fairly liberal if you're a /pol/tard and that would bother you. Dublin city itself is more or less like any city in the UK.
>>price/cost of living
Expensive. You'll be looking at 550 a month at least for rent anywhere near campus and it can be hard enough to get decent spot. Campus is alright if you can get it. Pints are about 5.20 - 6 euro each most place. Definitely avoid temple bar. You'll pay a fortune for one their. Aldi and lidl are your friend for shopping
>>how easy is it to travel outside of the country and visit other parts of the Europe/UK
Simple. Airport is maybe 50 minutes or an hour from campus. I had 2 American housemates last semester and I think they went abroad like 6 times between them.
>>any good bars/live music venues
Depends on what kinda music you're into. Fibber magees is the best spot for metal/rock I know of. Ryans is a good spot for trad. All the main clubs are around Harcourt street. Whelan would probably be the biggest name for like music. I don't drink much in the city so I wouldn't be the best source here. The student bar is alright too .

I go to UCD so if you've any more questions fire away

>what is the best way to try and keep prices down?
Haven't been to Koh Samui but if you want to keep prices down hit up street vendors for food or the local restaurants. The food there is often better, just eyeball it to judge whether it's clean or not.

Also, get the grab app for your phone if you will have internet there, use it instead of getting gouged by tuk tuks and cabbies, or try to figure out how the collective taxis work.

Sometimes it's cheaper to book hotels online than in person.

Alcohol is where you are going to lose your money, I guess buy it from a 7/11? It's still pricey there though, no way around it. If you are only there for five days you might just hand carry two bottles of whiskey or something, but I doubt that's really worth it.
>>
>>1482797
Ta very much, well i dont drink that much but since we going a wedding its most likely going to be covered for a few anyways.

Main costs im finding are the flights but i really do not want to wait to book the hotel nearer the date in case we dont get the one we want so its going to be all done at once which i realise is more expensive but piece of mind i guess and less strees incase shit hits the fan.

Im travelling from UK btw so duty free if anything i need cheap.

I wasn't bothered by the long Guangzhou stopover, just saying that these miraculously cheap trips aren't really as "cheap" as they seem - the food and luggage fees on that crappy budget airline, along with the meals and overnight room in Guangzhou, added up and the total price wasn't all that different from a "normal" one.
