How have people found finding places to live for 3 months in the past? In Chiang Mai I just turned up with a booking at a hostel for 2 days and was fairly confident I could find a place for $175/PM or under, and that was fine.

Are cities in Taiwan similar?
>>
>>1618401
Property owners in Taiwan would be considered batshit insane anywhere else in the world. The island has had an enormous property bubble for a couple of decades now, which only recently started to dip, and taxes are almost zero. So, property owners don't care about renting out apartments because they buy them for price-appreciation speculation. Property owners especially don't like renting out for short-term periods (i.e., under one year) or to foreigners much less to both. Tenants damage property and can be a pain to deal with, and that's even worse with short-termers because they have expectations about habitability and don't care if they trash the place.

You're basically stuck with AirBNB or places that rent "furnished apartments" to business travelers, and you can expect the prices to be at least double what rents would normally be.

The good news is that property values are down about 15% over the last 3-4 years and there's a general awakening to the fact that there's really no reason to build apartments for a shrinking population when salaries have been static for 20 years and the mainlanders aren't moving here en masse (why would they buy waaaay overpriced concrete boxes in Taiwan when they can live in Hongcouver?). So, eventually, all these stupid assholes will go bankrupt.

Oh, and for dance clubs I think the SOMA neighborhood (South of Market) is arguably your best bet, or used to be; I don't dance except under duress but have experienced interesting nights at DNA Lounge, which is closing in the fall, so go soon. Other interesting venues are the Rickshaw Stop, kind of in Hayes Valley, where I've seen both bands and DJs, and the Make-Out Room in the Mission.

Tons of great arcades, both pinball and otherwise. Barcades and non-barcades.
https://pinballmap.com/bayarea
Free Gold Watch in SF has a ton of pinball and a few video arcade machines.
Pacific Pinball Museum has a ton of pinball machines from all eras. (playable, of course)

I haven't been to every bar arcade in SF, but I enjoyed Coin Op Sf. They serve food there. And Outer Orbit is a bar/arcade/restaurant that has 9 pins or so.

But enough about pinball! What else is there?
Some nice hikes. Lots of good food. Mexican and Japanese better than most other parts of the world. Probably that's true of a lot of other cuisines as well. Great restaurants at pretty much every price range, I think.

I went to Alcatraz and did not care for it. But some people like it. If you like art, there are some nice galleries. There are a ton of tiki bars in SF, including one of the top ten in the world according to critiki (and another in Alameda).
https://news.critiki.com/2017/10/31/critikis-ten-best-tiki-bars-in-the-world-2017/
If you've never been to a sushi boat restaurant, there's probably at least one in SF. That might be fun. I know there's one near the border of Berkeley and Oakland. Or there was last time I checked.

>why did you leave? did you leave the US?
Left the US. Wife had a professional opportunity in Europe, so we went for it. I was getting a little tired of SF, but not enough to drive me out. If/when we move back, we will almost without question return there (not least because we still own a condo there). If we don't go back to the City we'll go somewhere else in the Bay where we can get a few more square feet of living space.

ghiradelli factory is great, store inside is overpriced but its neat to see the chocolate vats and stirring, and the sundaes are pretty gud. Got a comfy beach nearby too, water is usually freezing

presidio district is comfy as fuck

AT&T park for a giants game. "We're" shit atm, but the park is comfy and has a great view of the bay.

pier 39 is a tourist trap, but theres some legitimately goodf seafood there and iirc theres a random dock with a bunch of harbor seals chilling in the sun

CHINATOWN. Fantastic chinese food, real chinese immigrants, there's always some kind of novelty crap shop on a street you can go into, find hats, jade statues, samurai swords, etc. Some grocery stores and bakeries, and right by I think Sacramento st, there's a large park where they play this one card game and everybody's circled around each other. the entrance gate by the stockton tunnel is pretty cool too. Found a porn display in the back of some random shop one time

Amoeba records on haight st

Golden gate park, full of bums and pot smokers, but theyll leave you alone for the most part. its like 2 miles end to end, but theres so much gorgeous nature and trees to see. Theres a bison pen at the west end

Downtown is pretty neat, but this is where you'll see bums and those street shitters.

I doubt you'll find anyone that's been to a little tier 3 city like that.
It's right next to Qingdao which there probably are people who've spent itme in.
I spent three days in Qingdao, so I can tell you that it has German restaurants and beer houses but not much more than that.

AQICN shows decent air quality for yantai, so there's that.

There's a lot of Koreans in Yantai, just like in Qingdao. Don't know why there seem to be so many Koreans in Shandong in particular.
>>
>>1619050
Because it's close to South Korea so they can easily go there for business and education as things are cheaper in China.

Slightly unrelated but some fringe Korean nationalists genuinely believe that the Shandong peninsula was Korean land in ancient times because they misidentify the now extinct Shandong Dongyi people with themselves.

Hey so I only have one year left on my military contract and I am ready to travel the world. I've been saving for three years and I can speak English and Spanish fluently. I've always wanted to be a journalist (don't laugh) ever since those old ass vice videos where that guy went to North Korea, Liberia, and Russia. I'm planning on going to Cuba, and I don't know how I should start my journalism. Should I start a YouTube channel like that bald and bankrupt guy?
Tell me what you think and share your experiences and any tips you may have.

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.

Obviously, I'm gonna tell you to make your first stop a visit to your family before you go wander the Earth.

Afterwards, get on the next possible plane to Thailand and fuck some tight ladyboy asses.

I’m traveling to Florianópolis, Brazil in a few months and I was wondering if anyone can chime in as to how the city is. Is there much crime? How is the nightlife there? I’m traveling on business, solo, and plan to pretty much work and party during my 3 week stay. Any recommendations on bars/clubs/sights? Also, the hotel I will be staying in s on the north-side of the city near the coast and I’m not sure if I’ll be in the vicinity of the nightlife so any hotel suggestions are welcome as well. The company would reimburse me the equivalent of what they pay.

You may get scammed by some dinky taxi operator. The taxi business is some seriously competitive shit. Taxi operators actually assaulted Uber drivers at the Sandton Gautrain station because it was taking their business. So as with everywhere else; either negotiate a price up front or use one with a meter.

I am from California, and I'm broke, but i'll be getting a job soon. Hopefully I'll save up $2,000 by the beginning of August.

My gf lives around Pougkeepsie New York and she is constantly abused by the people she lives with. She asked me to take her away from there, so my plan is to find a way to get over there, and bring her back here to cali to live with me and my family.

What is the best way to do this? And I might have to stay for a while in the Pougkeepsie area just to deal with her parents before I whisk her away.

Please help me with some methods to travel there and live there like a hobo, but so that both of us can survive the trip back.

Looking to go travelling alone around Europe in a couple weeks time but I don't know how long I should really go for. I'm planning to get an Interrailing ticket for it. What's everyone's interrail experience been here with Europe and how long would you recommend, in general and a first timer?
>>
>>1618763
Interrail is great if you want to heavily travel around Austria, Germany and Switzerland. Anywhere else you're better off planing ahead buying the cheap "up to 2 weeks in advance" tickets and in the east it's way to cheaper to just walk up to the counter and buy a ticket as you need it.
Do not use the 1months pass, get the x trips in y days one unless you want to do nothing but be on trains daily.
>>
Do it if you particularly like trains or plan to leave a city every second day.

Flixbus or Eurolines might be cheaper anyway.

NA plugs work fine, Japan sockets just output at a lower voltage. Your devices will work fine from the USA, but there is a noticeable lack of 3 prog wall ports.


Worst is some shit may charge a tad slower
