As I wrote in another thread:

The idea that Southeast Asia has beautiful paradise beaches is a bullshit meme. No amount of natural beauty will change the fact that SE Asia is a third-world shithole, with the usual third-world cleanliness. Those clear waters and palm-lined beaches, at least half of them, have open sewers pouring toxic shit into them. The only way to find a "beach paradise" in Asia is to pay the premium for private island resort, such as the ones in the Maldives, and just keep as far away from the locals as possible.

I've had the misfortune of visiting the "untouched beach paradise" of Koh Rong Samloem, only to realize that the water is literally full of shit because all the bungalow resorts dump their sewage where people swim. Literally any "sub-par beach" in Europe is better than this.

>>1544714
thats true.the southeast asian people way of think is to not care about littering beaches and polluting the sea with some shit. every non-tourist beach in bali, lombk or Sumba is littered with plastic and cans. even african poor countries are better in cleaning their beaches.
>>
>>1544714
lol at you you fucking wanker
>>
>>1544718
he's half right. in general, they really DO NOT take care of their villages. people literally litter in their back yards. places that should have nearly zero pollution often look terrible

that said, it's not like that in every place. generally, in places that don't have a high population density (quickly disappearing) they take much better care and don't fucking toss trash in front of their house
>>
yeah, 'cherry picking autism' indeed.

...not to say you're wrong. the Litter is bad. Take Kuta for example. You go to the beaches near the city, there's more waves than trash.

You go to a nearby island, or even travel to the northsides of Bali, and you'll still get the blue waters and white sand look.

If you're going to place like that, take the path less traveled, don't do what everyone else does.

I'm a NZ born citizen and I'm thinking of moving to Queensland, AUS in a few years from now. To work and pursue a career. Just wondering if there are any native Queenslanders who can tell me about the place, places to visit, sites or points of interest, politics of the region, etc. Just anything that would be of interest.

From Toowoomba Queensland. Why bother coming to Queensland the other states are nice and has less pricks and cunts. Easier to get a lay and make friends if you’re a bogan. Hard to meet decent people and 90% of the decent people aren’t born and bred in Queensland. Literally met one decent Queenslander and it’s my current GF but her parents are both migrated germans so does it really count though? (No it doesn’t). Move to Melbourne or Sydney far nicer culture. Unless you’re planning to party all the time at the coast or Brisbane.

I'm from Toowoomba as well. A lot of people shit on it but honestly it's a nice little city. Good /out/ and mountains really close by, all the convenience and everything you need, only ~2h from brisbane if you want to get out for the weekend.
Only drawback is no beaches, but there are dams not too far away.

As an American I grew up with the typical toilet paper only method of cleaning. It never worked great and resulted in me wiping 15-20 times per shit. I went to Europe in my early 20's and got to expierece the Bidets of Italy which I liked, but I thought they were a bit cumbersome. Later on I visited Cambodia and I thought their little wash-nozzle thing was a great invention and it made it super easy to clean my asshole. A few years later I visited Japan and Korea and holy fuck, the washlet method of cleaning your asshole is top tier, it is an absolute dream when it comes to cleaning. Most recently I visited India and you can imagine how efficient that is.

Do your friends chastise you about it? All of my friends say im a faggot for having a washlet in my house. I explain to them, its literally a hygiene product and I am sorry they walk around with smeared shit on their assholes all day.

Oh, thanks for the reply.
I'm just kind of normie and I thought all the places but europe and america had squat toilets or urinal-type toilets. As I wrote, I like standard toilets

The indian thing has gotten soo fucking boring, If you watch Bald and Bankrupts earlier videos in Russia and other countries its so much more interesting, aided by the fact that he speaks Russian. He has like 250k subs now and probably 90% are Indians because its probably the first time they've heard someone speak positively about their shithole country.

as a tourist it's not a big deal, but if you live there every day, the 'don't act like an idiot' rule isn't going to stop you from being murdered by bangaladeshis or malays: particularly if you're east asian. the malays more or less have license to openly kill chinese. if they think you're chinese, you're a target

i fucking love the french. probably my favorite people. but i can see why a lot of people dont like them... its cuz they dont blow smoke up your ass and they shoot straight. they wont pretend to care about something they dont care about. they don't endear themselves. they are just themselves. if you are looking for someone to ignore you while you read a book, drink espresso and rip butts. the french are perfect. but if you are looking for someone to tell you how wonderful where you came from the french may be a bad fit.

There are good and bad things about Portland. There is a lot of homeless and a lot of over the top lefty types. But there's incredible forests and hiking. The nature in Oregon is some of the best in the country and it is very accessable from the city. The coast is nice. The weather has been really mild the past couple years. In the summer it gets pretty warm and there are plenty of watering holes near by. There's a lot of legitimately cool art and music once you get past the "#pnw minimalism". There's always interesting live bands playing. The architecture is very interesting, especially in the neighborhoods because every house is different. The food is ok. I like the beer options. It's also right in wine country in you're into that sort of thing. For every yuppie there's a homeless heroin addict trying to stab them. Sometimes there is human poop by the bridges. The ANTFA vs Proud Boys fighting is endlessly entertaining because they're all a bunch of retards, plus all the moderates who feign outrage and pretend like they're not entertained. The suburbs do suck. There's more cool bookstores than just Powell's. That's all I have to say now thanks for reading
