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.

*FAQ (aka shit you should stop asking)*
>Where should I stay in Tokyo?
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.
>Is Miyajima worth visiting when the floating torii gate is under construction?
Yes, it's still a great place to visit.

They are designed with the goal of making money, thus the highest possible density is desirable. If that forces the tiny minority of people too tall for economy to fly business then that makes them even more money.

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
>elite visas with expedited service at passport control
>ridiculous comfort items for long flights
>private lounges in airports

>>1721789
As a male it's pretty hard to flex visible in travel related stuff compared to woman.
airline and hotel status
airline/credit card company elite tier luggage tags
Rimowa, Tumi or better matching luggage set (honestly if you have a set of newer Samsonite luggage you are already flexing compared to all the plastic bags and discounter trash cans that make up 99% of checked and cabin luggage)

All the other flexes get only noticed by people who actually know what to look for
>this excludes about 90% of the world population especially chinese, the emirates and poos with their "in your face materialism" culture who might have money but will never have any kind of class or taste.

If you don't know yet this place is the bible of mongering. Info on every place in the world. From what I've read Bogota sounds like the best place. There is a zone called Santa fe which is their red light district. Thousands of cute young Colombians. Also made Santiago Chile sound interesting. There are "cafe with legs" where you can buy a cup of coffee and fuck the girl in the bathroom. Also from what I've read eastern Europe sounds like shit.

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.

Talk to people. If you're traveling, you can be whoever you want to be and not worry about embarrassment, because you'll never see those people again. It like the "What happens in Vegas" slogan. Also, I'm not a chad, but I'm also not a complete shut in because I made the choice to go to a party school for university rather than the more academic school, I wouldn't say it changed my personality, but it definitely taught me to be more sociable, especially living in the dorms.

Try staying in hostels when you travel rather than hotels, and chat with other travelers in the common area.
>>
>>1721816
OP you probably experienced a lot and changed a lot during your trip to Japan. You got out of your comfort zone and forced yourself to do things that you rarely (if ever) do. Whether you realize it or not, you’ve gained a lot of experience and confidence. That was just your first trip. The next one will have you doing in with an even more determined and unselfconscious mindset. Someday you’ll look back at the person you used to be and realize how much you’ve grown up. It’s never too late to grow into a better and healthier person, whether 33 years old or 63 years old. (Assuming you’re a man. Women have a best-before date)

Digital nomads are unicorns. The majority of them are losers with no marketable skills, who make a net loss every month and eventually have to return home. The 1% that make it are the 1%. You might as well get mad at professional sports players or celebrities, who gives a fuck.
>>
>>1721348
I digital nomad only because I already work remotely, though I am not the majority of the ones I met. Fun fact, it's pretty hellish if you have any kind of deadlines and meetings. Ah yes I love waking up at 4am to do a meeting only to find LOL powers out, happens don't you know this area?!?! so you need to get out your wifi hotspot, pray that your laptop is charged enough, and join a meeting. Wowie the fun. I now just travel for work and it's much nicer when someone pays for your hotel, gives you a daily spending fund, and lets you do fuck all on the weekends so long as you get to X on time.

Most digital nomads are slowly losing money in the long term of things, big whoop you can live like a king in SEA making 35k/yr. Congrats, but most are spending too much each weekend or spending too much just to stay stable that they should just move back with their parents. Most run into debt because 18-36 months down the road they realize they are down to their last few hundred dollars

The only time I've ever given anything to a beggar is when I saw a guy with the shakes, and he couldn't have been more than 120lbs. I bought him McDonald's. It was probably a withdrawl symptom (and he's probably dead now), but sometimes your need a hearty meal. I never give cash.

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 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.
