Is there anything fun to do here that doesn’t cost a fortune or that is even free for that matter? I’m sick of paying to do literally anything here.

as a former resident. expensive for it's size comparitively, underdeveloped infrastructure (only recently did they discover the idea of an express bus and still no proper BRT or faint hint of rail, also medical infrastructure is not enough for the population), small town vibes to too much of a degree where people hate change and think a 5 story tower is hong kong, will drive 15 under the limit because "it's the island bro calm down!". the beer was amazing, food was great, local culture and shows etc. are cool. but you gotta be rich and content with driving to live there long term.

I thought it was because I was overweight but it's been years and I lost like 30kg and it still cuts off circulation and I get pins and needles in my calves when I get up from a several hour flight.

I've only done Brasov in Romania, Prague (if that counts) and Istanbul (I think that counts even less). They were all absolutely fantastic places. Brasov and the Transylvania region in general is so comfy and beautiful. You really get this feeling like you're back in medieval times with the old growth forests, castles and such.

First of all, the "coke" is not really coke. It's bath salts which are essentially Chinese amphetamines cut with fentanyl and baby powder. If any dealer finds out that you're from out of town, there is a 90 percent chance you'll get set up and robbed. And if you do manage to get the drugs without getting shot to death, there's a good chance you'll overdose anyway. The third most likely outcome is that you'll get set up by the cops. Protip: weed is legal in California. Go to a store and buy a legal drug and don't die

I am an American man who came to visit Egypt, but I felt so extremely unwelcome.

I went to the pyramids of Giza and they were truly majestic, but I couldn't walk more than a few steps without being harassed and hustled by the many of the touts trying to sell things or services. They were trying to sell me camel and horse rides, trying to give me a guided tour, trying to sell me worthless crap trinkets, trying to take my phone from me and take pictures of me and then demanding an absurd amount of money.

One guy that I got on top of his camel for pictures asked for money so I gave him $10 and he started yelling and screaming at me asking for $100. I thought he is going to attack me so I just quickly ran away from him.

One guy came up to me to pose in a picture with me and I told him to go away but he wouldn't. He stayed in the picture while my gf was taking the pictures and then he asked for money, I got so extremely mad and I screamed at him at the top of my lungs to go away. All of the other travelers around there heard and were looking and then only did the guy go away.

Then trying to walk around Giza and Cairo, just forget about it. It's virtually impossible. All of the touts coming up to us and asking if we need a ride, or if we can buy their whatever shit trinkets they are selling. We couldn't walk more than literally 60 seconds without someone new coming to harass us.

What is it about this place that makes visitors feel so unwelcome? Why do they do this? There is so much rich history and culture to Egypt that I am sure everyone all around the world would want to visit.

When I came back to the US and all my coworkers asked me how it was, I told them the pyramids and temples were amazing, but the touts were absolutely horrible. I told them not to go, and that I would never go back to Egypt ever again.

There's good food everywhere, but some places simply seem to have an over abundance of it. What are some places you've visited and/or are familiar with that you can say with confidence: "If you go there and don't eat well, it’s your own fault."

I go to Paris very often for work, I rent a car and drive around, I do that every 3 months and honestly? Paris is where I still can have authentic sandwich on the bar counter, or genuinely good not overpriced traditional food. And I can still have very decent meals in cafés.
Elsewhere it’s just (bad) kebabs, (bad, horrible, “french”) tacos (not the Mexican one), and sloppy horrible sushi.
Like you said, a lot of traditional places have closed down. Also I do not count Southern France. The small beautiful restaurants in fancy villages are nice but are very expensive and are for tourists. Not bad, but not quite the daily meal type of food.
>>
>>2665815
True about Paris and other big cities, you can still find places mostly owned by boomers.
I wouldn't blame kebabs more than fast foods tho, and ultimately it's the fault of the French for abandoning their culture, like most French in their 30s and under can't appreciate pot-au-feu, coq au vin, bouchées à la reine and so on...
The French abandoned their culture for foreign ones, in food like in everything else (like naming their kids Dylan or Rayan isntead of french names, no one pushed them to do so).
>>
>>2665786
As long as kebab makes people fuck off because you have it at home then its all good. I wish every place gets all the same services so you stop acting embarrassing in foreign places and maybe idk go there to teach in university over just fucking around in Subway because you wouldnt do that in home, but how about someone elses home. Well now they hate you.

Biggest L on tourism: People live here.
>>
>>2665829
Oh I don’t blame kebabs. They are hardworking and trying to make money from something that is popular.
I am more pissed by the fact that French are absolutely crazy about Asian food while Asian food is absolute dog shit in France.

If I can get a window seat it's fine, I fucking hate being told to move every 5 minutes because the person next to me has a bladder the size of a peanut.

This is bad advice, the ""person"" you're replying to has to stop being a fucking bitch and to simply stand up and ask for permission to go to the toilet.
If the loser you're replying to has a hard time doing this, imagine what's gonna happen when haggling, avoiding a scam or simply standing up for ""him""self.
>>
>>2660324
The seat is not the problem - it's the people around you. When you upgrade you're getting away from those people and it comes with a more comfortable seat and the food/service is nicer. But you're really paying to get away from the knuckle-dragging public - their precious broken condoms (aka children), their inability to stay seated and to keep from bickering, farting and kicking your seat. Among many other fucked up things they do.
>>
Best advice is to stop being a sensitive pussy. There's a lot more unpleasant experiences in life than sitting on a padded seat for ten or twelve hours. Yeah, the person behind you is gonna bump your seat a time or two. Big fuckin deal. If you're in a middle seat, it's your duty to use the bathroom the same time the window seat person does.
>>
>>2660324
its not bad- granted like others have said, you pay premium to get away from the normies. I would just pull up my laptop and watch movies/play games. One time I played a city building sim for hours and suddenly realized we were landing when the stewardess tapped me to get ready to land.

Saying fuck the US, moving over to PH since I can get a SIRV visa and stay as long as I like. I've got bare minimum $600/month in passive income to live off. I like to think I have a pretty solid plan here, but feel free to tell me I'm stupid and I'll let you know if I thought of it.

Anyway, I wanted to travel around a bit off Credit cards before I get there, so I should have around $30k to work with, plus a couple grand cash for the things that won't take cards. I want to visit Japan, see Tokyo and visit some of the whisky distillers, check out some of the historical stuff. Maybe visit South Korea? Then head to Thailand for a bit for the nature, temples, etc. Then off to Philippines to figure out where I'm settling down.

Just wanted to know what /trv/ thought, if there's things I should be sure to do in those countries, if there's other countries I should check out, or anything else I should know. I like to walk/hike, have no problem going out off the beaten path, and I've got a pretty strong stomach and enjoy authentic Asian food, so no need to find McD or shit like that.

Anything I should know, resources I should check out, trolls complaining about what I'm trying to do?

The only thing I would say to consider is that you can make money in a western country and simply put it into something that tracks s&p. if you made only 37k after tax and put it away you're making an additional 312 each month on average.

use the credit cards only if you never think you're coming back and have no assets in the US.

I am in Chiang Mai Thailand for a month, what should I do here?

Given the slop that is killing us sooner and sooner in the USA is it worth spending a few years in Japan to become healthy? I don't work in an office so am thinking of just flying there and living in some small apartment for a year or two in order to regrow my hair, get healthy with their food that lack MSG and GMO and preservatives, and maybe date around. Anyone do this I can't deal with the costs of daily eating in the US and I live in one of the healtheir states, it's still really expensive in San Diego

Not him but don't lie to yourself.

America is the only place on Earth where the cheapest items, vegetables and fruits, are extremely expensive, overpriced, flavorless, and unripe.

No other country would accept this garbage. I'm currently in Vietnam and I can get a bomb ass salad with zucchini noodles, basil pesto, avocado, all colors of the fucking rainbow and it will taste GREAT and be fresh for $2.

What could $2 get you in America now? You couldn't buy a handful of peanuts for that and you'll spend a minimum $20 for your healthy vegan restaurant salad using prepackaged lettuce and organic arugula from a plastic 'triple-washed' salad mix.

Then expect it to be lathered in "vinaigrette" made of soi, modified corn starch, emulsifiers (destroy your gut lining), and all sorts of other abominations. Or worse yet, American "salad dressing" (pure HFCS).
