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.

After writing my essay in college on the politics in Ukraine, and then meeting a great group of former Ukrainian dissidents at a museum in London, I'm finally getting my chance to visit Kiev!

I'm there from the 23rd to the 26th of this month, and staying at Hotel Ukraine overlooking the main Square. Any suggestions on what to do? Is there still that makeshift museum there behind the hotel, where the sniper attacks happened? I'm very interested in the conflict and would love to see memorials, too

Thanks, Anons!

Let's play a game, /trv/.

State where you currently live, and a different anon will recommend a place for you to travel based on your location. (E.g. someone states they live in Hawaii, so you recommend them the Rocky Mountains in Colorado for a completely new experience.)

I'll start: Dallas, Texas.

You need a shore and a hill. Big Island of Hawaii is an easy recommendation... or Sicily if you want Europe (try Cefalù, pic related, best in shoulder season, overcrowded in Jul-Aug), or maybe Jeju Island, Korea, for Asia (not beachy, but mountainous and an island).

Singapore, been to most first world countries in the world except US probably

Is there anybody here who's been to Thailand in December? I know prices tend to vary depending on the seasons. Some friends and I are planning on going there this friday, Phuket more exactly. We've managed to find a charter package for 700 usd each. The thing is, I only have around 250 left to spend while there. Is that a sustainable budget? And if so, what kind of living standard standard can I expect? Any input is greatly appreciated.

No vaccines are ever necessary. You always have the option of not getting them and risking serious illness or death. Enjoy your liver cancer.

250 for two weeks will be really heavy budgeting if you plan on doing any activity, including drinking. Especially in Phuket and other popular beach locations.

I'd have at least 500USD for two weeks of holidaying, that gives you wiggle room and you can also do something interesting.
I live here and I spend around 1k a month on living on average with nothing special (western standard of living).

Get hepatitis vaccine at least.

Saudi, Pakistan or if feeling slightly adventurous, the last remaining non government controlled parts of Syria. all 3 have palm trees and with a little planning, you can expect a decent amount of sunshine. please grentext your experiences if you make it back to the airport.

I'm going on an Amsterdam trip with 4 other guys for 3 days or so in late April.

I'm interested in sex tourism and wanted to know if I should avoid the RLD altogether and check something else out. I have a 2000 euro budget for sex tourism alone. From what I have read the most attractive women are in the RLD but offer the worst service. What are options where I can get both an attractive woman and good service?

not him, but dont go to Amsterdam. They are all scam girls in Red Light. Flip positions? Extra 20 euros. lol, no thanks.

Germany is simple. Hand over 40 euros, you get sucked and fucked until you cum. Their brothels cater to normal people who just want that, not some walking district with bars and green houses everywhere, and scamming whores.

No need to go that far into Germany. He can go to Maastricht by train, visit a decent city that isn't overrun with tourism, then take a bus to Aachen and go to easily one of the best RLDs in Europe. Or go a shithole like Liège and probs get cheaper.

For the Americans Amsterdam to Aachen is like a trip to the "grocery store".

I'm confident enough, I am honestly just afraid to go to areas in Tokyo due to what I hear about them. Are there better options in outskirt cities? I heard that Osaka is safer and less expensive, but that is hours away.

Thank you for answering my questions though.
>>
>>1327767
>Are there better options in outskirt cities?
No. Period

The best options will be in the city. Osaka might be better right now because of the fucking olympics destroying Tokyo but its going to be similar in that theres only a few good options and you'll have to be confident and choose. Theres better things than pink salons but I've been witnessing firsthand so much of that being destroyed that I'd rather not say. If your Japanese is as good as you say, just start doing a deep dive in Japanese into Ikebukuro, start checking on the work ads for Japanese girls at those bars and you'll find all kinds of craziness.

Hey anons, lifelong solo-traveler here. My friends are not interested in travel unless it’s for live music or sports, and my family refuses to leave the US (mom went to Paris once but rarely left the hotel). Normally this is not a problem for me obviously but next July/August I plan to visit Australia an unlike the places I typically go to prices and exchange rates will not be in my favor. Although you can always join organized tours these can be expensive because companies set them up and their employees still need to be paid. I’m thinking a road trip would be the best route for me, and the best way to do that would be to split the cost of renting a van and drive to campsites, splitting the cost of gas and alternating who pays for campsites, and maybe the occasional hostel.
Hopefull this thread stays up for a while, I’d like to enlist others to join me if they are: frugal, nature loving, laid back, apolitical, and not racist. Basically fellowpoorfags that just need to get out once and a while; doesn’t matter if you’re a veteran traveler or if this is your first time so long as you can commit.
I might make a related discord, fake email or something but I’d rather the bulk of brainstorming take place here. AMA

Given it’s something intended to be carried, quite small, the size of an “average” adult but I daresay it would still be fucking uncomfortable, claustrophobic & quite warm inside. I’d invest in, depending on what months you’re travelling, in a light swag, mosquito net & a hammock.

>Everyone I've spoken to seems to prefer Melbourne to Sydney, this comes as a surprise to me. I'm sure they both have plenty to do, my final choice will likely come down to which is a cheaper destination on the day I buy tickets.

If you have money saved and unless you plan on going back to Australia again soon, it’s retarded to select a city purely because it’s cheaper even tho you think the more expensive option is nicer.
I mean you travel across the globe, you could at least try to make it worth it.
There’s being frugal and then there’s being cheap.
>>
>>1326814
That would be true if choosing to save money by visiting Sana'a over Seattle or something just to save a few bucks; but I'm not yet convinced that Melbourne is a better choice relative to Sydney, still reading about the two cities to compare.

If you wanted to visit the US and were equally interested in both LA and NYC would you choose the more expensive option just cause? Cost is a good tiebreaker, and at the time of my earlier post it did seem like a tie.

Massive blow to tourism as 36 Dutch tourists robbed at gunpoint by 'police'

>Forty-nine hours after a group of Dutch tourists set foot in South Africa for a fun three-week holiday they returned battered and bruised to their home country after becoming the victims of yet another airport robbery. The group of 36 tourists, most of them over 60, were scheduled to leave South Africa on a flight on Tuesday night and arrive back in Amsterdam around 10.30am on Wednesday - spending not even 50 hours in this country.

>The tourists, who arrived in South Africa on Sunday night, were robbed on their way from OR Tambo International Airport to their accommodation in Fourways. Their bus, they said, was stopped by a vehicle with police markings. One man was dressed in a police uniform, the other five in civilian clothing. Describing the experience as "hell", Bakker said the hands and feet of the bus driver and the tour leader were bound with cable ties. Five men boarded the bus and stole whatever they could.

>"People panicked, and firearms were aimed at them. In two cases, the trigger was pulled but the gun didn't fire," said Bakker. Several of the tourists were assaulted. Spokesman for Dutch travel company ANWB, Ad Vonk, said the tourists lost their phones, bags and luggage. The Dutch ambassador to South Africa, Marisa Gerards, said the tourists had booked an organised trip instead of striking out on their own because they had safety worries. "It was [ironic] that those who were so concerned about their safety were so brutally robbed."

>After the robbers left, passengers freed themselves. Some of the passengers were treated for light injuries. Vonk said some Dutch tourists had been victims of crime in South Africa before but there had been "nothing on this scale".

Why does South Africa try to market itself as a free, tolerant and safe society for tourists, when it is clear that this is NOT the case?

A boy in Hue's imperial city, vietnam

I'm thinking about getting a working holiday visa for Australia. But being from Canada I'm concerned about the heat. Ideally I'd find jobs in rural farms that pay well so I can save some good money. However do these jobs exist in areas that aren't hotter than hell? I can hardly stand to go outside if it's hotter than 30 degrees out.
Also, how crazy are the Abbos? We have natives here in Canada but as long as you don't walk in their area late at night alone nothing really happens. But from what I heard Abbos are on a whole nother level.

>I love Tasmania, I'm not sure how much fruit picking is available down there. It's a lot less populous than pretty much every other state (bar the Northern Territory), so there's a lot less tourism there


1. theres lots of summer work fruit picking. pay is usually performance based so the more high quality you pick the more you make.
http://www.farmwork23.com/farmwork-availible/434/bw-griggs-&-sons - that link has 10 farms with seasonal work in the Huon valley, 30 minutes drive from Hobart (the state capital).

2. there is heaps of tourism in tasmania. Tas has a population around 500000, but in the last 12 months measured there were 1.2 million visitors. the majority of visitors come over summer. http://www.themercury.com.au/realestate/the-changing-face-of-our-capital-city-as-tourism-boom-drives-hotel-developments/news-story/e4494e282fe71101e1d2ee3feef172fb

much of the tourism revolves around nature and scenery, some around the convict transportations by the british, and much about the provenance of foods.

the temperature in tasmania routinely gets up to and over 30 on and off through december to march. however we dont get humidity like NSW/QLD do.

I don't want to deal with all those visa stuff so i will live there illegally (basicly i will go there with tourist visa and will not leave). I have online business, i don't need job. But do they ask visa or bank account while renting in those countries? Will police bother me? Which country is best for me?

Don't see any thread about travelling to vietnam so im making a new thread to ask some questions.

I have a full 24 hours stopover in Ho Chi Minh city (flights got changed after i booked them and became that long). So that is enough time to leave the airport and do some cool stuff in the city.

The few things i have found are going to Cu Chi tunnels for both the tour and the shooting range and getting cheap as fuck massages in the city.
I am also thinking of either a happy ending massage, blowjob bar, prostitute something before i leave. So any suggestions on good places for any of those types of things would be appreciated.
I also would be keen to hear any other ideas if things to do that are in or very close to Ho Chi Minh.

Thanks!

Planning on going there this Summer.
Was thinking of starting in Hanoi, and finishing the trip in Saigon. (3-4 weeks)

Is it a good idea ? Was also thinking about checking Cambodia while I'm near.

So I'm going to Italy in december, I would've preferred spring or fall but its just what works out with my girlfriend.

We're landing in Rome, spending 3 days then going to Florence for 4 days, followed by Bologna for 2, Venice for 5, Verona for 2, Milan for 3 and Rome again for 5.

We're young, mid twenties and have disposable cash. Staying at mostly nice Airbnb's but some hotels as well.

Wondering what are some of the must do's and hidden gems that may be in those cities. I've been reading up on Rome, Florence and Venice but first hand experience from others always intrigue me more.

In short, red pill me on Italy in December

do NOT go to Venice for 5 days. Just 2 days is plentiful, assuming you want to get the authentic experience. You'll want to take a gondola ride and take a walking tour by a local Venetian. Visit the Murano island. But apart from that that's it. Venice is beautiful but the amount of people that are there each day will quickly become overwhelming.

if i have a specific question, it'll be - how do i figure out which places to eat? for example you said bologna was great for food, but should i just follow tripadvisor/ ask conceirge?

thanks for the tips and advice

5 days in venice is fine given its the down season, plenty of nooks and crannies to wander and a few museums and churches, check out a few of the outer islands like murano too. there is a possibility of flooding though...

Cinque Terre totally shuts down over winter so it will be very quiet if thats what you'd like. (like one store and one or two restaurants per town). depending on the weather walking between towns might still be pleasant, or just train between them.
