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 this place full of chads or something, I don't get how you all have these amazing adventures constantly without being the most alpha out there or some shit. I recently got back from Japan trying to have the crazy and fun times I hear about but never got it, it was such a set back that I didn't even go to a soapland. I seriously don't think you guys do half the shit you say, any time I asked for help you fags went and told me "go to a bar" or "be sociable" yeah fucking how dipshits. I went to japan to break out of my normal shutin self since after 33 years I think it's finally time to shed some new skin for once. Literally just would go to some bars people mentioned or places and all I saw were cute couples and tourists none of which ever talked to me.

How the fuck do you all travel without getting severe depression as everyone around you has a bunch of fun.

Let's discuss the Heart of Asia - Taiwan.
Going back for three weeks over Chinese New Year. I won't be running all over the island like I did this year with my partner. We'll spend most our time in Banqiao & Yilan. Still not sure what I want to see. Thinking about going back to Hualien just for a coffee. Who else is planning on going next year?

Went to Jiufen today, on the train back to Taipei from Keelung now.
At first it seemed like a generic tourist trap, but when I ducked out of the main drag the alleys and stairways going all over the place up and down the mountain were really cool.

The Liuhe night market is really different than the ones in Hong Kong (>>1713591). It's roughly 80% food stalls and there are tables where one can eat. The stalls are located at the sides of the road and in between are five meters space, while it's very narrow in Hong Kong (maybe 2m in the middle of the road).

This is a shower where a chick washes you and then has sex with you? So it's just a prostitute and a shower or is there anything about it that's different or better than a regular brothel?

If you do more than an hour it comes with a nuru massage which is pretty cool, a naked chick slathered in slimy shit sliding all over you feels pretty great. I think that's the main feature, honestly.

Wanted to do a day trip to Hiroshima. I've already ruled out Miyajima due to it probably being covered in scaffolding. Worth it to do a Himeji Castle + Hiroshima trip, or add another day for Kyoto? I've currently got about 2.5 days scheduled for Kyoto. I'm using Osaka as my hotel base.

>>1721628
I've done money-less traveling before ("beg packing" is derogatory fyi) and had some incredible experiences, especially in SEA. When locals help you out by sharing some change or giving you a bite to eat it really reinforces our collective humanity and gives you hope that we're all going make it. It's an amazing way to see parts of the world you wouldn't normally see and interact with people you normally wouldn't. I've actually wanted to start a money-less traveling general before but I'm worried that alt-right nazis would derail the thread because they've taken over this board.

The plastic in the oceans for mostly originates from Asia. Western countries recycle and bury the rest under the ground and Western citizens generally dispose of trash properly. Asians generally don't give a shit about the environment and dump huge amounts of plastic in the oceans.

What kind of suit do you guys wear when you fly?

I usually wear a beige suit if I'm traveling somewhere warm, otherwise I've used a standard black suit. And I just bought a gray suit that I intend to wear when flying to large cities.

Only situation I can think of is if you're coming off of a redeye and have to go straight into a meeting, which is the whole reasoning behind lay-flat business seats. I would just change in the airport, rather than fly in my suit, though.

I'm an outdoorsy kind of person that enjoys hiking, and reasonably rustic, rural living, preferably in somewhere with either stunning scenery or large areas of forest. I'm planning on meeting a friend in the US from Michigan - my question is, where is the best place to fit this vacation criteria within the state or slightly outside? Would be prepared to travel a little - as far east as upstate NY, far south as Kentucky etc etc.

Anyone know of any good, reasonably secluded places that offer cabins or air bnb within this radius?

Curious, do you guys know of any really obnoxious flexes you can do while traveling? This is completely open ended. It can be travel gear, perks, clubs, lounges, locations, country/city specific, etc. I just wanna know how i can spend money for the sole purpose of making people feel poorer than me and flexing on them. It can even be gestures, actions, behaviors. I didn't want to admit this, but I want to exclusively flex on Chinese people that think they're richer than me

Visiting Bali these days feels less and less as if you're experiencing some of Indonesia's many rich cultures.

Lines waiting to reach the summit of Mount Everest are causing serious safety concerns.

Eleven people died in this year's climbing season on Everest — and images posted to social media of huge line to reach the summit shocked many people. But while hundreds of people now reach the summit annually, many more just trek to Base Camp — leaving several tons of garbage and human waste behind. In sum: The world's highest mountain is being desecrated.

The climax of "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" was filmed in Petra, Jordan. While it certainly is an impressive sight that can conjure all kinds of treasure-hunting fantasies, a lot of other people seem to have the same idea — crowds can be pushy, merchants even pushier (not to mention price gouges), and overall it can feel like anything but an escape from everyday life.

Real-life Dubrovnik is struggling against the horde of smartphone and selfie-stick-wielding tourists.

As ever-increasing numbers of celebrities, the ultra-wealthy, and even ordinary folks attend Burning Man each year in the Nevada desert, there's concern the event could be losing its way.

More people want to experience Berlin to the fullest. Rising rents and gentrification are also killing the vibe — plus, it's hard to make money from a club.

But all those fancy overwater bungalows in the Maldives are filled with tourists, not local people. The Independent reports that environmental impact is a concern, for one. And then there's the issue of climate change and rising sea levels — many of the nation's islands could be underwater before this century ends, according to The Telegraph.
