Hey guys, i would need some advice from you please:

I will work with a good buddy of mine in Taiwan in May. So my question to you is, where would you go from there? I already have been to Japan and the Phillipines.
My budget is around 2000 USD and i have approximately 2-3 weeks time (depends on the destination). Im not very interested in cities, 2-3 days are ok, but not more. Bonus points for destination that are nice to travel with a motorbike.
Pic related: Its approximately the area where the destination should be set in because my flight home will be again from Taiwan.
Hopefully you can recommend me some hidden gems.
PS: Im not gay if that makes any difference
i started in vietnam and met someone who invited me to taiwan. It has fun touristy things in the countryside and phong nha was nice. Motorbikes are pretty cheap to rent. You could theoretically go the length of the country if you wish. I met someone doing it in 10 days so it is not impossible and the record is something like 24 hours so just something to look into.
You could easily do 1 week in korea + one week in Taiwan/hong kong

shit should we do an itinerary? i just wanna go again to jiufen and then check out i guess taroko or something. where else should i go besides the obvious night markets
>I’ll stay in Taipei but I’ll go to
Taroko and idk what to do because I don’t even check online for the infinite amount of blog posts about Taiwan itineraries and how do trains work anyway
Three full days (getting in and leaving days not included) in taipei (or day trips if suggested) en route to tokyo from hong kong on a work trip, but will have the days in taiwan off. Any suggestions for itineraries?

>knowing instantly how she really looks.

This is it for me. You can walk around in malls and other places in phil and stumble across some mind-numbingly gorgeous women who are just working a regular job or messing around. Having your flirting game on point is important to take advantage of opportunities like this.
In Thailand a lot of people speak English to communicate with tourists. On top of that, any educated woman worth your time speaks good enough English. You wouldn't want to go after someone in any country who doesn't speak at least good English.

On top of that, Thailand is the better country to visit. The food is better, the people are better, the scenery is more varied. Philippines are a bit of a shithole.
Depends on your airport destination but i would always recommend Bohol, Siquijor or Dumaguete / Apo Island. If you're in the north, i would recommend San Juan / La Union especially if you're into surfing. Floatsom & Jetsom hostel is really sweet but a bit on the expensive side.

Yes, more mountains tho so if you're into hiking it's pretty cool. Also check la Union.

There is the business district, the malls and has most of the clubs.

Can second this.

Manila is a shit hole but also has it's cool places none the less. 2hours+ Bus drive and you're in paradise tho, so do yourself a favor and do a Trip for a couple of days.

Dumb thing to say considering Philippines has thousands of Islands with different cultural backgrounds and different types of lagunas.

Anons who've been to Georgia before, what do you think of this itinerary?

Sighnaghi 2 days
Tbilisi 3 days
Stepantsminda 2 days
Borjomi 2 days
Kutaisi 2 days
Jvari 1 day
Sukhumi 2 days
Batumi 2 days
2 replies omitted. Click here to view.
jvari is a 30 minute visit, don't make it a day, mtskheta is another hour at most. kutaisi only really needs a full day, batumi same. i would spend more time in tbilisi because there is loads happening and it pays to hang out and get a feel for the place.

Majorly pissed. You shouldn't backtrack into Georgia once setting a foot in Abkhazia.

I don't know about Borjomi. Also, Sukhumi is in Abkhazia which is effort to get to.
However, as amazing as all of Georgia is, the highlight of Georgia is Mestia with a trip to Ushguli. You just can't miss it. I suggest you skip Borjomi, Jvari and Sukhumi and take a 8 hour marshrutka from Kutaisi to Mestia. From Mestia you will be able to get out to Ushguli for a daytrip unless you want to stay the night there (there's lots of guesthouses).
If you have unlimited time just do it all but it seems like you don't because you listed everything day by day.
Shatili in the Tusheti region is supposed to be grand aswell and similar feeling to Ushguli, but more difficult to access.
Don't forget to do a daytrip to Gori from Tbilisi to see Uplistsikhe (a must) and J.V. Stalin's birthplace and museum.

Pic related it's the Enguri River Valley outside of Ushguli with Mt Schara in the background
You can still, in theory, go back to Georgia after Abkhazia if you entered from Georgia. However youre banned for life (that passport's life) if you entered through Russia.
Thanks for the tips
I'm not the biggest Stalin fan haha, but Uplistsikhe looks pretty nice, Mestia & Ushguli too

Have you heard of any issues with people going in and back out of Abkhazia via the Georgian entrance?

Jvari the town
My plan with Kutaisi & Butami is to do day trips to Tskaltubo & Makhinjauri respectively
Will def consider spending more time in Tbilisi, thanks

Is Athens really that bad ?
45 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Ordnung hasn't even been a concept beyond the western Germanic peoples, and mind you, Germany is not exactly the best country in the world when it comes to orderliness. Besides that the concept is inherently illiberal when not vacuous.
Just got back from Athens. What a fucking dump. Graffiti more than I've ever seen anywhere else in the world. I've been to shitholes like Central America and the Middle East, but the graffiti in Greece is unparalleled. Corrupt government, antifa everywhere. They deserve the bed they made.
I'd say this is misleading and this is coming from someone who's lived in athens for a very long time and fucking hates it. Overall Athens is probably one of the safer capitals of Europe despite having a very rough look with its human shelves spammed everywhere and graffiti & trash.

The reason everyone throws such a shit fit about Athens is because its bad parts (e.g. Omonoia with its druggies, prostitutes and pickpockets) are right in the centre of the city. In Western european capitals that most tourists go to, they find a well preserved, safe centre where they can take nice pictures and live their fairy tale. Then, the more away from the centre you go, the more shitholish the city gets. But because of this order of shittiness from the centre to the rest of the city, most tourists never see the bad parts of western euro capitals. I've seen blocks in London and Paris that I felt more unsafe in than the worst parts of Athens. But no tourist ever goes there. In contrast, it would be hard for a tourist visiting the centre of Athens to NOT bump into its seedy neighbourhoods since all the touristy crap is there, while the suburbs that many people live in are far better. Hence, you need special advice for the tourists visiting athens that other western cities don't.
Most American cities are like this as well.
That's it? Try Portland Oregon USA.
There's a tram like system that will get you around most of the town, you will encounter homeless people and the clearly psychotic muttering to themselves and threatening people on the ride. Then when you reach the center of the city and need to reach the train station, its only a few blocks down from the tram station, lucky you!
Once you get past the hordes of actual homeless people mixed with not actual homeless people but people just begging for cash because its better than a job and manage not to get stabbed on the way you will reach chins town halfway to your destination. Now its junky central with people shooting up in the streets and homeless people on every corner. Don't worry, you are almost there. Now just get past the homeless encampment tent city that's literally across the street from the train station and you should be alright. Unless you get stabbed in the train station, which is homeless Mecca.

Me and a friend are planning to visit tokyo after our finals in 2020, but the olympics are on a few months after we plan to go (early june), so would it be better to go after the olympics are over? Does anyone else have any experience of travelling to somewhere before the olympics? Is it cheaper or more expensive?

Yeah went out most nights, just pregamed before hand by drinking some liquor/beer before hand. Drinking at the clubs are laughable since most drinks are 600-800 yen a pop. I've done a lot of 300 yen bars though always a fun time too. Cover charges are usually 1500-3000, with the really fancy shits being 5000 but usually requires good locks and knowing japanese. Probably only places you NEED japanese to enter are high end clubs and hostess clubs.

Nomihodai is great though, never do I mind paying 2500 yen for 2 hours of all I can drink before hitting somewhere up
What's so special about high end clubs in Tokyo
Same shit with high end clubs else where, but generally they don't want random foreigners coming in who aren't going to easily understand the club rules or environment they are trying to promote. So a lot just say sorry no, because it's too much trouble for them
Which are the besr neighborhoods for nightlife
Dunno what you are into, check the japan general in the catalog for more input.

Akihabara has mogra, shibuya has a lot, shinjuku always has something if you avoid the blacks, yokohama has a different scene, osaka as well, etc etc

Spent 2 weeks in Oman. Was lovely and extremely safe, one of the safest feeling countries I’ve ever been to
The following is a generalization.

There are vanishingly few countries on Earth where the population is hostile against all foreigners to the degree where being attacked is the norm rather than the exception.
What I hear the most is the DRC, Somalia and surrounding border areas, East Timor and the Afghanistan/Pakistan/India border areas.

In general, the Islamic world isn't evil in any way, shape or form, and hospitality is a very highly esteemed virtue - it's not inherently dangerous, but because of cultural differences and recent political tensions, it's easy to accidentally step on a landmine, in both the metaphorical and literal sense.

If you come to the area with the preconception that it's a backwards desert filled with screeching turban monkeys who keep their eight-year-old wives on leashes and beat them for fun, you're much more likely to offend someone, and go figure. A question like "but I thought women weren't allowed to speak, go out of the house on their own or stray from their domestic duties" when you see someone's daughter sitting with her hair down on the driver's seat might be laughed off, but if you immediately voice your stereotypes you're going to be picking a fight - and again, go fucking figure.
Islam is as much of a varied religion as Christianity, and the ones we're always warned about in the Western world are their equivalent of the Amish - completely literal fundamentalists whose entire society is oriented around nothing but religion.
Everyone but these 5% land anywhere on the spectrum from "quietly but fiercely faithful" to "as Muslim as an atheist with a Biblical name is Christian". Only the very most extremist countries - Saudi Arabia is the main one - actually enforce religious law, and as such you'll see many, many different shades of Muslim in every country.
If you go in and wave the Murkan flag around, thinking you're "enlightening" the local population with ideas they've never heard before and that they should feel grateful for having you mouth off, you're going to make no friends and many enemies, just like a frothing Islamist preacher would do in the US (try to imagine a bearded mullah with a spittle-flecked beard coming to your home and professing the natural glory of Sharia law, and you see how a chest-beating American would come off in Iran).

If you go with the earnest curiosity of wanting to see a country, not mouthing off on your preconceived opinions and learning as you go, but also not imagining that it's a perfect wonderland (this is what gets trustafarians killed abroad) and treat the locals as people and not Islam dispensers who'd gladly turn their very own daughter into bloody pulp with a meat tenderizer as soon as she dares look at another man than you or the 80-year-old husband you picked for her, it's going to be like any other country.
The vast majority of people will have seen tourists before, and will be helpful but not worshipful, especially if you mind local customs (many customs considered stereotypically Islamic are in fact cultural customs) and don't act boisterous, entitled, aggressive, pushy or otherwise unpleasantly. Some people will be overjoyed to be able to show you their country, inviting you into their home from the get-go and having their family cook dinner for you, ply you with tea for hours (Muslim countries like long, long, long sit-downs - have patience, it's rude to bail out) and in general be incredibly, sometimes overwhelmingly, kind and hospitable.
And then, because people are fundamentally the same humans, there will be the scammers, the fraudsters, the bandits and the scum who normal people also hate.
Remember that no people in the world generally go out of their way to harass, inconvenience or kill people unless they've really done something to deserve it.
those names really do look like you just hit the fucking keyboard
I went to Morocco, Egypt, Turkey, Lebanon, Iran, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Indonesia.

I'm a white European dude in his early 30s.

Morocco and Egypt are pretty harsh. You aren't in any real danger but you will get harassed by touts, beggars and people trying to get your money all the fucking time it honestly made me consider those countries to be the worst to travel to. The Pyramids and Sahara desert wasn't worth the hastle.

Turkey is very nice and the people are extremely warm. I even managed to get laid with a local girl which I didn't expect.

Lebanon is honestly just a first world European country that is completely westernized/modernized. I got approached by women during clubbing because of my exotic whiteness. I was actually kind of disappointed in how modern lebanon was since I was going there for the historic touch, even more modern than Israel.

Iran have the friendliest people you'll ever meet. The women that come up to you to talk are extremely educated (talking Phd level here). Most people were actually atheist but culturally Muslim. Still a bit conservative even though they were atheist with dyed hair as I didn't get laid or were hit on sexually like in Turkey and Lebanon. The archeologic stuff you'll see here are more impressive than anything you can see in Egypt, extremely underrated from an historic standpoint.

Pakistan has extremely amazing nature. Perhaps one of the most beautiful countries I've ever traveled to there is an extreme variety in places there. The people were relatively nice but you sometimes see people kinda distrusting of you.

Is Lviv better than any cities in Poland? I just came back and it was so wonderful and cheap. Makes me want to visit Polish cities.
Poland looks the least shit brown compared to a lot of Europe right now. It doesn't look like a sea of shit from aerial view that's France and Germany.
Mainly because the pollution smog is so bad you can't see anything from the air.
No, cities in poland are on ciudad juarez tier. Agree lviv was beautiful but not poland. As other anonas said there is massive pollution there, very unhealthy air, millions of street gangs and beggars everywhere, agressive prostitutes, too bland foood which cause stomach pain problem and generally very shit architecture and ungriendly people. You should think more about seeing more east east europe tho. Vilnius, Riga, kaunas or kyiv are very good cities for a start.
I think you're confusing your views with the streets of Tel Aviv. Now that's a real shithole.

Well everybody, it finally happened. My b*tch of a grandwh*re finally croaked. It wasn't pretty either. Seizure in the bathtub. And yep, they sh*t themselves - and who do you think had to clean that up? Anyways, I got $3000 from her death and will be using that to travel. Currently I am in America and would absolutely love to see abroad! I would really like to hear some suggestions :-D. I enjoy food more then anything in this world. I would love mostly to experience the culture of a region that takes food and makes it from the heart of soul. Now obviously I don't want to go somewhere in Middle east... Definitely not somewhere in Africa... I am thinking a place that is American friendly. I don't want to learn or read anything about a language so forget that. I definitely don't want to be scared of pirates the entire time I am on this adventure so no islands. Don't like cold weather. Especially hate being hot (I am obese at the moment and do not want to sweat more then walking already makes me). The food I prefer is fried and often potato related, white flour and cow meat is good as well. I don't fish or lean meats. I do like candies and am especially fond of deserts. I have to carry insulin shots with me so I can't go anywhere were they will judge me for type 2 diabetes. Any suggestions?

3k can take you pretty much anywhere in the world, Europe will suck your cash faster, aisa will make it last longer. If you just want a fucking safe country so you can brag about being abroad just do Japan. Flights from the west coast are like 500-600 in spring, the 2 week JR pass will let you effectively see the whole country, and you can stretch the remaining 2000 USD easily over a month utilizing hostels/capsule hotels/airbnb. You could probably even cheap flight hop over to korea and back for less than 100 bucks from tokyo

DESU your best bet with 3k is to just hold onto it and actually research places that you want to go and see. Then monitor flight costs for cheap deals
OP I think you're really selling yourself short by discounting the Middle East. Of course I'm not going to recommend Afghanistan or Iraq but Oman is a phenomenally friendly country (though a little on the expensive side) with lots to do.

And I know you've probably heard this before, but I would work on the personal health aspect before doing any extensive traveling. It can be very taxing on the body and you'd likely feel a lot better in the long run if you invested in your health now to reap the rewards later
3k is enough to travel, but unless you really have a drive to a specific place that you've been dreaming about you'll just be wasting it.

1. Put into savings
2. Research what areas you want to go to
3. Plan all the things to do out
4. Go and make the most of your time

Also lose weight before traveling, you'll enjoy it way more regardless
Couldn't have a decent trip to Disney with only $3000

Albania: where people in a town hear you speak english, and then practically drag you down the street to a wedding. Next they ply you with food and booze until you can barely stand, then get you a room at the nicest hotel in town free because the owner was so surprised to see someone from your country in their town.

Good times.

Filipinos doesn't have the friendlyness with ulterior motives, eg. expecting you to buy anything. Vendors can greet and wave to you and be happy about that rather than selling their stuff
