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.

There are still no signs from the Philippines government that they are ready to reopen their border for international tourism anytime soon.

The Philippines has been under strict lockdowns for more than nine months now, but in the last month, the government has slowly started easing restrictions for locals.

A Tourism hotspot and tropical paradise, the Philippines has long been a favorite for, beach lovers, and ladyboy enthusiasts, and boomer sexpats for decades.


Anybody care to share any crazy stories or experiences? Can I live in the PHILIPPINES for 400 dollars a month? How much is a dirty foot hooker in Manila? Should I open a bar or start a pig farm? Can I get laid?

I agree that most people here probably weren't planning on going to the olympics anyways, but I think the concern is about the implications on allowing tourism that the olympics have.

Hello fellow citizens of the world!
This is a thread to share your favorite quirky things you do when you travel!

Me personally, I always check out McDonald's in every country I visit just to see what's different (did you know in Singapore they service rice if you order it????)
What's yours?

>>1941864
They have rice in McDonald's Hawaii too. They also have a choice of SPAM or Portuguese sausage, eggs and rice for breakfast. And seasonal teriyaki burgers, they used to be all year round. Really disappointing that they aren't anymore. Strangely the one at the Dole Cannery had hot dogs, it's the only place in the country I ever saw hot dogs. It's gone now. Otherwise they have everything else I've seen at American McDonald's around the country.

I do this too friend, I was bummed when I went to Montenegro and found out there is no McDonalds in the whole country.
>>
>>1942880
I do the reusable shopping bags too. Not those ugly black ones with neon city name printed 100x times but ive noticed a lot of europe has a plain white/cream colored cotton tote, with the city name and an old drawing of a view printed on it, little doodles of each major city and their names or map of the city.

I actually get a use of them and they normally only cost 1-5 euros. A bunch of states, cities and stores are slowly going bagless and i keep a few in the car. Plus i can use them to wrap stuff in my suitcase, such as wrapping any clean clothes away from dirty clothes on the way home. Or putting my plane pillow and magazine in as i prefer to check the rest of my stuff vs dragging it around the airport.
I dont need 20 random mugs, i normally dont stick stickers and i know ill never wear a random Latvia tshirt.

Copypasta FAQ:

Anywhere on the JR Yamanote loop line.
>Is Hiroshima+Miyajima worth it as a day trip from Osaka/Kyoto?
Not really, it's too rushed and you should probably just stay the night there.

I recommend the "Official Japan Travel App". It's free and does a good job of planning routes using public transportation.

Is it just me or do japanese generally especially women dress much better than in London?

I’ve been here a couple times and living here now since a couple months ago. Im near london but to me it seems like japanese women dress way way better and more effort than women at home in england. Even just going to work or something.
I cant tell if i just never paid attention in london enough or if im being a fag so someone let me know.
>>
>>1943121
Japanese and Koreans tend to dress very well, though they tend stick to the same fashion trends and there’s little individualism compared to the West. It’s one of the things I love about these countries. Being in London feels like a third world country sometimes.

No paranormal shit pls. Only real life events like creepy locals, weird environments, bad gut feelings about places you visited etc.

Richmond Virginia. It was 1997. We were in town for the the day to see a punk band at some shitty club. A ghetto looking Honda accord pulls up next to us. Four dudes wearing Halloween masks. I laugh thinking they were a band dressed up for the show. I see 3 of them point assault rifles at us. I can see that they are black dudes. No black people go to punk shows. This is serious. I yell for everyone to run thinking we're all about to die. The black dudes roll out without firing a shot. But I never once went back to Richmond.

Coney Island without a doubt. It was a weekday I believe, around noon, and it was like a ghost town. All the rides were shut despite it being the October holidays and a sunny day, most cafes and food places were shut. Not a soul to be seen on the boardwalk, pier, anywhere. I wasn’t greeted when I walked into the few shops that were actually open. I was a foreigner (British so maybe people couldn’t tell) but the looks I got from locals gave me the creeps. I wasn’t even taking pictures like a tourist, just strolling around. But the way people stared at me felt like I had walked into an unknown territory. Nothing like the pictures I guess.

normally i think these threads are fucking stupid because you all ask the same questions, but go to leo's bagels in hanover square. i have never had a better bagel and i would murder a man to have that taste in my mouth again.

if you're a degenerate just go to output and buy some drugs then fuck around williamsburg until some takes pity on you and sucks your dick.

if you like art (even if you don't) i highly recommend the noguchi museum. it's beautiful to walk around and usually isn't that busy. great place to think about your life. his sculpture has a strong affect.

if a stranger starts talking to you just say "no" and ignore them. don't even listen to what they have to say or look at them or you'll end up like this guy https://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/nyc-canadian-tourist-beaten-robbed-in-chelsea-hotel-room-police/414574/

if you want some teenagers to blow blunt smoke in your face and steal your wallet go to LES skatepark under the manhattan bridge.

if you're a normie then go to dumbo and take your shitty photos.

idk i miss new york now. :( i hate this place but i can't stay away kek

Visit my pal and throw some business his way at Book Thug Nation bookstore in Williamsburg.
From there you can catch a ferry to Wall St (Pierre 11) that lets you enjoy the whole glory of the Manhattan skyline and the bridges for like 3 bucks.
If you like art, go to the MET. Flooded with tourists, yes – but so what? It frankly is the best museum in the world, especially if, like me, you're a sucker for 19th century european painters, but whatever your interest in art may be they got you very well covered. Plus you get a cool discount if you're a student, no matter from what school in the world. And the tickets are good for 3 days, so you can take your time and go back to visit another part the next day.

Maybe not for everyone, but I thoroughly enjoyed walking along the High Line. Basically, they took an elevated rail line and converted it into a park.

It's free, so that's a plus. Wasn't terribly crowded even before the pandemic. It's pretty interesting just walking over the noise and commotion, being eye-level with the buildings, surrounded by greenery in a place otherwise devoid of it.

One time I spotted a woman bathing in a bathtub in what I can only assume was a luxury apartment. It was quite a few stories up, so nothing exciting to see, but still, don't see that every day. Not sure if she had a slight exhibitionist streak or something else.

The thing I always tell people to do is ride the subway and just experience the insanity - business people, min wagies, instagram influencers, mentally ill, old people, students, bums, drug addicts all in the same metal tube.

This is slightly more dangerous during COVID so use precautions. Also don't talk to anyone, just try to blend into the bench as best you can.

If you have any better prompts I can direct you better (what are you missing your in hometown?)

MANDATORY 14 day quarantine for all incoming international arrivals- including returning US Citizens- coming into effect via the new Biden Administration's Executive Order. This is in conjunction with, not in lieu of, the already existing 72 hour COVID test all international arrivals already must possess before boarding their flights to the US. Good job retards, we're now all trapped in this hellhole of a country indefinitely with no way out.

I know a guy who had to do the 2 week quarantine so i asked him about it. there is 0 enforcement. in the worst horror case they can track you by your phone, but you can just leave your phone at home

regardless i'm not traveling until the mask stuff is over. i'm not being harassed to wear a rag over my face while on "vacation." that's the opposite of relaxing. plus everything is closed...i'll save my money and go after this insanity is over.
>>1943003
But I don't want a vaccine. I've already had the coof, why on god's earth would I get a jab for something I already had? The vax passport is unenforceable and they're going to be sued. A lot of people had the coof at a time when no testing was even available. How can they blanket mandate that everyone gets the jab for something a very, very large number of people already caught? And the vast majority who catch it are supposedly completely asymptomatic (hence why we need the masks, supposedly--because anyone can have it and even they don't know it.) All of the proposed rules for this fall apart with basic logical inspection. The quarantines are logistically unenforceable. The passport concept will be sued to kingdom come, I think they'll ultimately acquiesce and allow self reporting that people already had and recovered from covid to suffice as a passport stamp of approval. Plus that kind of thing discriminates against people who legitimately can't get the vaccine, like people allergic to eggs or any other vax ingredient, the immunocompromised, etc. At least in america it would face endless litigation, but then there's international reciprocation. And we have to consider also, for how long will these passports be mandatory? Are people 5 years from now going to need to get the coof jab to travel?

I can’t tell if you’re being ironic or not. Even if China started it, it’s your own shitty countries that can’t manage it. Somehow Korea, Taiwan, Singapore, New Zealand and Australia are all doing fine.

In my opinion, it’s St. Louis. It’s in the US, which automatically puts it in “most soulless” contention, and it also has a murder rate in the top 10 highest in the world despite being in the first world. Hard to argue that the title can go to any other city.

Cuba is safe, you just have to give a persistent 'no' to anyone trying to sell you shit or ask for money. And in the context of Latin America, it's probably the least dangerous country you could visit. Havana's maybe the only big city in the region where you can stroll around alone in the dark while being totally relaxed.

I want to live 6 months in either Vietnam or Japan. Will try learning the language 4 months before then build upon it once I live there. What would be the best pick between those 2 factoring in:

Cost of living(rent, food, transportation like renting a motorbike)
socialising with natives(both male and female)
Language learning curve and general usefulnes of it.
I'm freelancing at the moment and will have an income of around 400€ once I get there, which will slowly increase, and of course what's in my bank account should something unexpectant happen.
I want to live in a big city, but I'm fine with one room and not center location. As long as I have a small kitchen and place for a laptop, I'm fine, altough quality of living is still a factor I would need to consider.

Don't know if it matters but I'm 21 years old.
