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.

Is it true that Philippines is the most expensive country in Southeast Asia? I hear stories how stuff like food and hotels happens to be cheaper in Thailand and even Malaysia despite both having far higher income on average.
I’ve even heard stories of Manila being almost as expensive as Taipei and Singapore.
Others say it’s almost as cheap as Vietnam

How would you rank each Southeast Asian country by affordability?
>>
>>1746026
Philippines can be expensive if you try to maintain a certain level of comfort that most Westerners want - air conditioning, clean apartment, safe building/neighborhood, taking taxis/Grab, healthy *and* tasty food, hookers in the cities, etc. It's not more expensive than Hong Kong or Singapore, but it's nowhere near their league or class. And for those creature comforts above, it's more expensive than Taiwan. It can get cheap as your standards drop and you go to rural areas.

In order of cheapness I would rank countries as follows. Note that I'm comparing equivalent costs of living, eg living with comfort in Hanoi/HCM vs Phnom Penh. If you drop your standards then the order will change:

- Vietnam
- Cambodia
- Thailand/Laos (mostly tied)
- Taiwan/Malaysia (mostly tied)
- Philippines
- Hong Kong
- Singapore

I can't rank Myanmar or Indonesia. I'd like to hear if other anons agree with me.

How do you guys afford traveling so much?

I worked real hard to drop out of college at the age of 22 and get a unionized job that made me $120k last year.

Brazil brought in only 6.6 million foreign visitors in 2018 - fewer than theocratic Iran, fewer than conflict-torn Ukraine, fewer, even, than just the Louvre Museum in Paris.

What the fuck is wrong with Brazilians? Why can’t the government control the country and why are the people so violent.

Idk anon, I am from Gramado and raised in these german towns (Canela, Santa cruz do Sul, etc) but the thing is that - besides natural wonders - there is nothing there for tourists to see. Brazil is not prepared or even trying to get international attention or please eventual tourists...

I like to compare as those pics of celebrities when being taken by magazines or by paparazzis, Europe is completely prepared to receive tourists and prey on them, Brazil is just not expecting and unprepared to receive them

Hah my pathetic Swedish uncle does the same thing. I'm from Dallas and he assumes I'm some kind of backwards hick. Anytime the US comes in conversation (which he always makes sure it does) he says San Francisco is the only place in the US he would consider visiting because people are "more open minded" and "intelligent" there. Little does he know Texas is more diverse, global, and innovative than Stockholm ever could be, let alone sweden's smaller towns.

Sup guys!

Over a month ago I posted a thread inquiring about some Russian shitholes I could visit. Many in the thread pointed me to Vorkuta. Thanks to your tips about how to travel to Russia, I can proudly say I landed here tonight.

The thing now is, I'm not really sure what to do. I'm here for five days, the snow is constantly blowing, no one speaks english, and the vibe is actually kinda dangerous lol.... I'm pretty much planning on visiting the surrounding areas and taking pictures. But in the time between that, what? Should I visit a club? Would I have any success if I did? Should I try to make a friend? So far the Russians have been unanimously unfriendly and angry. They don't even make eye contact, looking at the ground instead. Not sure how much of a scene I want to stir either.

Russian anons, or people with experience here, feel free to lend ideas

This meme is only repeated because reactionary /pol/tards get satisfaction from imagining the ‘death of europe’. Paris is fantastic; I went there last November for the first time in 20 years and it was everything I hoped for. Walked up Montmartre expecting to be mobbed by immigrants selling trinkets; I didn’t see a single one, just white people busking and happy tourists sitting outside cafes. Ditto for the Latin Quarter and Ile du Paris. Sure the area around the Tour Eiffel is shit but anyone who thinks that’s the centerpiece of Paris knows nothing about Paris, and deserves disappointment.
I had such a good time it was like I’d stepped into a Zola novel. Thank you based retard for lowering my expectations.

Sup /trv/ I'm going to be in Vienna for valentines day weekend and I am looking for suggestions on a free architecture tour. Obviously talking about baroque and gothic styles here, and hoping to get off the tourist trail and check out some places I can just wander in and out of free of charge. If I cant go inside thats alright too.
Also, how far will I get if I just walk on into the Rathaus? I know theres free guided tours but not over the weekend. I'm thinking about just walking in some nondescript entrance and exploring til someone tells me to leave.
This will be my first trip to Vienna, but I've been all over the other parts of Austria and speak "fluent" German if it makes a difference.

Most churches if not all in Vienna are free so that’s a good start. Most palaces and beautiful places (Schonbrunn, Hofburg, National Library...) are not free though so you might have to consider paying.
>>
>>1745581
yeah Im planning on it, but Im looking to fill out my days with more free stuff in between large attractions
>>
>>1745581
It's the furthest thing from "off the beaten path" but you only need to pay admission at Schonbrunn if you go into the palace, the ground are free, massive and definitely worth a visit (although probably better in the summer)
>>
>>1745648
Yes I'm planning on Schönbrunn, the Dom, the Rathaus, stuff like that. I was more wondering about something like an old baroque building that got transformed into a classical instrument store or something

I work on ships, and >>1745770 sums it up pretty nicely. If you do a cruise you do it for the ship itself, so double down and make sure it’s a good company on a newer ship, or one that just came out of dry dock.

It's the best bang for the buck. Most stops in the Carribean are trash. You might as well stay on the ship unless you enjoy a beach day. Most ships have good WiFi, so your phones will work and you can stream Netflix. Each cruise line is different and each ship within a cruise line makes a BIG difference. Right now, RCL is significant;y better than NCL and Norwegian. However, Vista class ships on Carnival can be quite good.
>>
>>1745875
>Than NCL or Norwegian.

Those are the same company.
I’d probably go with celebrity or princess. The solstice class ships are some of the most beautifully designed ships out there, and it wouldn’t be too congested compared to a RCL or Carnival megaship.
>>
>>1745709
I hear plenty of horror stories about ordinary cruises where you are packed in like cattle, but I also almost always hear great stories about luxury cruises. Get what you pay for I guess. The only advantage of a cattle cruise would be to tour an area to see what you like for a proper holiday, but you can do that quicker and probably cheaper by air.
