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.

You are obviously doing something wrong.
Where do you live? If you are in bangkok try to use thai friendly, they are thousand of average thai girls with average jobs alone working in the city that want to do something during weekends.
>Maybe I should just kill myself
Don't. Keep lerning thai. BUT go to a gym too. They are not expensive in bangkok. At least get /fit/.
If being /fit/ and thai friendly dont work for you. Yes, give up anon and just go to Patayya and buy one of those rice farmes selling her body.

Thailand general.
So sick of seeing 3-5 threads on this because the last general thread got deleted.

ITT; Ask questions, share stories, locations and tips.

>Unpopular opinion, I thought pattaya was shit and walking street was over rated, soi cowboy and nana plaza are way better, debate me.

You should call this thread just sexpat general.

Pattaya still have its magic. But walking street? just go there to have the first beers of the night, listen to live music and, if you are with a friend who is his first time in thailand, to take him to a agogobar half an hour to just have fun and see his face when you enter the place.

Soi6 in pattaya was my favorite street in Thailand. More than 100 girls working in a 200m street. The problem is that they are too pushy for lady drinks and sex, you cant drink a few beers and relax there especially if you are young and white. They all just want to fuck you in the room upstairs. I was even jealous of the old sexpats drinking alone in a corner.

Agogo bars are a waste of money. They are fun, but my most expensive night in thailand was in the skyfall agogo in pattaya. I mean, the place was fucking glorious but Lady drinks + barfine + 'dancer' to my hotel room = it was the same money to take two girls from a bargirl.

Didnt like Soi Cowboy, but I liked Nana Plaza. I honestly miss one of the girls in front of the nana plaza sign. She literally jumped on me when i was walking. She was too fucking sweet and happy with me in the room to be a prostitute. I was confused as hell.

I honestly understand the people who lost their mind and savings there. You must be carefull and always go in cold mind mode.

They are only good if you're a creepy 50 year old fat dude that doesn't get any from his wife anymore and you fetishize young women so you get all your satisfaction from the idea of fucking young girls instead of the actual sexual act itself.

Asians are bad in bed everywhere. Fat british women were the best lays I've ever had though, ugly but your dick will be happy.

If you dont like skinny rice farmers you shouldnt go to thailand, but I found a few that knew how to take you to heaven, some of them were just terrible yes.
Fat british women are funny at the beginning but they are disgusting and insufferable after a few drinks.

whats it like to live in the philippines?

what can you do as an expat there?

My gf is filipina and wants to move back... I am open to it but I'm not sure what it would be like. I have been to Thailand, Vietnam and Japan... I am assuming it would be a lot like Thailand/Vietnam (not culturally, but in terms of shit never working right, bad wifi etc.) but want to hear from someone working there. We would be living in Cebu

Think of it as one big Brazilian Favela.

The biggest benefit you get is that the Internet is not censored or regulated unlike those other countries.

Only 6 basic Rules:
1. Don't go down south.
2. Don't involve yourself in any, and I mean any drugs without a death wish.
3. Use common sense when walking outside (basically, don't show off how rich you are).
4. Never go alone between 7 PM and 6 AM.
5. Watch out for scammers.
6. Follow of the above, or else.

Once you follow all of that, you'll get treated to a pretty easy and cheap standard of living. Your girlfriend might know how to get along with people over there better than I do, so just listen to her.

Those cities are safe if you keep close to the city center. Anywhere further is a huge risk.

cool, thanks man.

what kind of work is available for expats in the Philippines, and is it easy to find work?
>>
>>1455746
The IT and Gambling Industries are starting to boom. Anything further than that is agriculture.

Anyways, the country has always been known for Hardware and Chip Manufacturing.

But I'm sure any specialties you might have will be accepted over there.

It's not like the country doesn't have anything open on the tray.

Hello /trv/

So me and my gf wanted to do a balkans trip. We figured let's just roll and do this, so we're leaving late september with our trusty scenic. Our start is Lithuania, then we go through Poland, Hungary, Serbia, etc, I drew a probable route in the attached jpeg. We got about a month, we'll sleep in tent, car, air bnb's and couchsurfing. We also like cooking outdoors and we have a grill and a cooler. We're not party people, tho we enjoy alcohol a lot, we want to enjoy cities and do some nature sightseeing, eat local food/meet locals. No drugs.
Any tips? Places to go? Places to avoid?
Excluding gas we have about a 4000 eu budged, if we cook for ourselves I believe we can stretch it easily.
More info - we're both 24, have student ids even tho we finished uni already (oops), speak english and russian.
Also a meet up is possible if anyone is up for that.
Thanks guys.

Sofia doesn't suck, it's just your same-old eastern European capital. Felt it was a bit similar to Bucharest. I'd advise to just take a free walking tour or smth, maybe visit a few of the hot spots then go somewhere nicer like Rila or, indeed, Plovdiv.

Which towns have the best balance between having a decent crowd running but not too many drunk englishmen? I don't want to die because of some drunk lad but I also don't want to be the retard running in front of the bulls alone.

SanFermin is a fucking scam. 15 years ago was a perfect 'party' but nowadays is too famous. Drunktards everywhere (most of them not natives), hotels scamming tourists, everything is overpriced, piss smell everywhere and too much people.
If you are in spain and want too see this shitfest, is ok for a couple of days. But comming here just for the bull running is a waste.

Just moved out of my hometown in Southern California, renting in Oregon now. It's been a couple months but all I can feel right now is homesick. I left California for multiple reasons, but I miss the warm beaches. Are there any nice beach towns to live in other than in California? I was looking at a few real nice looking ones in Florida, but that state also has a reputation...

Don't know what to do, I'm not planted and stuck where I am so I could leave and travel more if I want to. I just feel like going back to CA for some reason but I didn't like it there. Maybe this belongs in /adv/ or something, I don't know.

Hey /trv/ do me a favour and recommend me some gear.

I am going to Cambodia next year for 6 months of walking through the country and trying to avoid trains and even buses.

I need good shoes. Some guys recommended me Merrell Moab, but there are some reviews claiming they are shite and too hot anyway for travel in South East Asia.

What do you think, are they pleb-tier? What would you recommend instead?

Thanks my doods.

I've been annoyed by our Real Traveler's Map™, where you can fill in administrative divisions of countries you have visited, for quite some time. Parts of it has been outdated or simply wrong, and coastal subdivisions have been a pain in the ass to fill out. Now, combining my 8986 hours in MS Paint and my 25 years of autism, I have combed through the entire map and updated it completely.

First of all, I've made it much easier to fill out. I've drawn lines and connected every pixel to another. Every subdivision can now be filled with a single click of the paintbucket. This is especially apparent when it comes to places like Northern Canada, Southern Chile, Greenland, Norway etc. Second, I've revamped more or less every island terriotry, which previously were often just black dots in the ocean and impossible to even fill out. If they were large enough, I included every subdivision, while if they were too small and/or had too many subdivisions (it's usually both, the Maldives for example have over 200 administrative divisions...), I've grouped them according to island groups instead. E.g. the Marshall Islands is divided in two (the Ratak and Ralik chains), instead of 24 municipalities. This also applies to the Cook Islands, Nauru, Kiribati, Palau, etc. I've also removed all those red lines denoting disputed territories, and adjusted the borders to reflect their more de facto nature, which is more convenient from a traveler's perspective.

I've also added more coloring options, light and dark red for homeland and its visited subdivisions, and light and dark green for visited countries/subdivisions. This is to make it easier to spot if you've visited a small province in a big country (Like Doha, Moscow, Bangkok, etc). I also added yellow for coloring in places you're going to visit next. If you guys want to use these colors is entirely up to you though.

I hope you appreciate what I did and use this new map. Feel free to change it however you like.

Also map thread.

What are some scams that you discovered in your travels that surprised you? Bonus points for countries that are supposed to be "developed" but have Nigeria-tier scams going on.

In Italy when you go fill up your car and employee offers to assist you, if you don't turn him down and do it yourself they will add 0.3/L to the price of the fuel.
