Hey voyagers,
/trv/ is a slow board, so don't expect immediate responses. CHECK THE CATALOG – you might find threads already discussing topics you're interested in.

Before asking for suggestions, tell /trv/ about your:

This makes it easier to give quality advice. Of course, keep your posts travel related.

his isaan farm vlogs are pretty good to watch
I really enjoyed the ones where he scammed bar girls for 10 cents and abused them all. I also enjoyed the one where a thai guy was about to bottle him and he ran and hid behind his lady so it couldnt happen. I also like the one where he called out an expat in Pattaya as a fat faggot and wanted to fight him, so said expat turned up on one live stream and wanted to go toe to toe and he ran away like a crying fat baby.
I like the other one where he begged for donations on live stream to tip the girls in the bar, only for him to pocket all the tips and give them nothing.
great GUY!

I've spent a bit of time in smiley land and it's truly the end of the road for some people.
That said I respect nothing more than a depressed pathetic westerner who takes all his money, blows it all on piss and ugly whores than offs himself. It's a dignified exit.
I love Isaan and don’t have anything to do with whorehopping. Especially if you speak Thai or even better local dialect, it remains the part of the country that holds closest to the smiling, welcoming, and friendly stereotype of Thailand (the hypocrisy of which bitter cynics love to scream about, but which does have a kernel of truth to it).

How's Costa Rica right now? Anyone there/been there recently? Thinking about a surf trip the first couple weeks of July. Things open?
15 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Should I go to Costa Rica as a solo travler? I was gonna go to Taiwan, but they're still closed, I also already speak Spanish so I'm sure I'll be fine. Specifically What's the nightlife like?
I just got back from 3 weeks in Belize; had a great time. Masks are still a big thing but otherwise life is as normal. I showed my vaccination card at the airport and was literally waved past everybody and was through in 10 minutes. I forged hotel bookings but they didn't even check.
What's the nightlife like over there, I assume like Cancun?
If one were to go to costa rica, where should one go? I hear tamarindo is great. I suspect the "chaos" is more san jose?
So where in the world could you pull this off without worrying about snakes, large predators, and poisonous insects?

Are they gonna complain if I wear normal shorts and a t-shirt? It’s hot as fuck in Europe and I can’t be arsed to wear formal clothing, and it’s my first business class flight. Ty in advance seasoned traveler frens

I wore zip-off cargo pants while staying at a 5-star hotel once.
Sounds like your dad has a stick up his ass and you inherited it.
If I'm paying 5 grand for a flight I'll wear whatever I like and if your try hard dad doesn't like it he can walk.
I honestly don't mind the backwards seat, it's weird on takeoff but perfectly fine after that, also it's a nice little nook if you get the window.
Anyway I was just using it as an example of a hilariously bad business class
>if you're trying to blag an upgrade you have to dress smart
This isn't the 80s anymore. Upgrades can be bought. And if someone has to be upgraded because of overbooking it's done by frequent flyer status.
I fly Swiss business/first once in a while in long haul and always wear casual if it's for a vacation. I only wear a suit if I'm flying on business.

Also us Americans are really demoralized from all the happenings. The constant gay culture war that gave us such cringefests as Gamergate and the Trump presidency is now practically inescapable if you're living the normie waggie life. Just hanging out with bros on the beach with some girls who don't fucking care about US politics or culture issues just sounds so good right now.
W-whats the furry thing?

No one goes for the temples. Seen one seen them all. This board is obsessed with it because most of them think it's some fantasy dream land. 99 percent are larpers and have never left their shitty home countries.
The reality is the country fucking sucks, it's hot as fuck, it stinks, the people are fucking rude, there's double pricing just for being white even in government businesses, the whores charge first world prices and think they are now supermodels and give subpar service, need to deal with boat loads of Indians, Russians and Arabs shitting the place up, plus you gotta deal with a never ending stream of retards and the lowest of the low of society from every country in the world and blowing loads in the same girls you might have wanted to fuck. It's disgusting, don't come.

yeah seconding this.
also it removes you from any family "drama".
once in a while I hear my mum complain about Aunt X or Uncle Y doing such n such retarded shit or a cousin going to jail or w/e and I'm glad that I'm completely removed from that drama thanks to living overseas.
See “occasional” did it a handful of times during my 11 months. If there is a place to do Coke and hookers it’s South America man, when in Rome and all that jizz.

>t. international relations anon
p.s. invest in water and rare earth elements
>If you think this lifestyle is more fulfilling than waking up every morning and knowing who and what you are, I genuinely feel bad for you.
But are you implying that one cannot know who and what one is unless one stays home? That seems ridiculous to me.

Coke and hooker benders are not appealing to me personally (I am sober and do not like paid sex). And hedonism of any sort is not likely to be meaningful (I suspect that those few people who experience revelations that their fundamental identity is that of a hedonist are all either going to grow out of it or end sadly). But it’s unquestionably a dramatic life experience, and those are often worth having.

But most importantly, I am convinced that people can and do discover their real, authentic selves abroad all the time. My identity is informed by where I come from, but it is in no way tied to that place.

What's there to see and do in Oxford? I have to travel there in September so I'm curious as to what is available.
13 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
they need leading voices to take down all the old white men revered at places like oxford
Browns always concentrate to cities, London is the biggest culprit.
I just showed up and walked around. Seemed much of the campus was accessible and you could walk around and appreciate the architecture. Lots of nice shops as well. Plus saw someone with a street organ, that was cool.
Ashmolean museum is great; all kinds of weird stuff from colonial times like shrunken heads.
A walk down the Thames (Isis) is classic
Get a pie at the Eagle and Child
Botanic gardens are good depending on the season
See how many quads you can sneak into
Be prepared for a fuckton of homelessness, flocks of Asian tourists ruining every college quad, idiotic street performers, and some insufferably ugly council architecture right in the middle of the city. Doesn't matter; Oxford is still magic.
If you`re scared and asking if Oxford Is unsafe im wondering how Much of a autistic pussy you are. No don`t come here.

WhIch airline is the worst?
9 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
i always figured china eastern/southern were supposed to be shit. Their prices from london to the far east are always undercutting their competitors by several hundred £. I expect to get a meal of rat feet and chicken shit desu.
Yeah, tap is very shitty.
I once took a China Southern flight because it was the second-least expensive flight available for what I needed. Like you've said, everyone else was more expensive. The least expensive option was China Eastern, but I decided against them, because I've heard through various anecdotes that they were the worst of the worst.

And what do you know, I got what I paid for. China Southern was pretty shit, too. I reserved a specific seat number with them, and I ended up getting a totally different seat. Don't know why they bother with a seat reservation system if they're not even going to give me that exact seat. The best thing I can say about this airline is that the food wasn't terrible. It's not good, but it's also not complete shit. A solid 4/10.

Worst thing about them is that they can't seem to stay on schedule. My first flight with them was delayed by three hours. My second flight almost got cancelled. It was probably just bad luck that I got delayed twice by the same airline, but it did not leave a good impression.
You must be unique anon, also small. Being 6'2 I find it nearly impossible to actually fit in the seats, not to mention if you buy anything at duty free they say it is an extra bag and you have to pay to bring it on the plane, everyone on there are usually poorfags so don't know how to behave and if you're going somewhere new you have to hope that the airport you're flying to is best the city, I had the misfortune of flying to Stockholm with Ryanair years ago, only to find out the airport I landed in was closer to Finland than Stockholm. Fucking dreadful airline but as this anon says
People only care about price. Personally I'll happily pay for a bit more to be treated like a human.

I'm going to turkey soon, and like most countries it requires a PCRtest from 72 hours prior to arrival, but if I take a self test then send it back to the lab, how will they know wben exactly I took the test? Is the timebased on the lab time of testing? Or do I need topay for one of the tests where a clinician does it themselves.

Sorry its a very narrow question but I'm spending ages looking for this info and trying not to get shafted. I can't find anywhere that turkey requires it performed by an actual lab person, or when the 72hours start. If anyone knows of any other technicality I might not realise please share. Thank you anons.

Should note mine went like this

>took the test at 10:30am
>dropped off the test in a drop off location at around midday
>received a text acknowledging the test had arrived at 6am the next day
>got an email with my result at 14:30 that day
It's a good system, idk about other providers but with randox if you drop your test in their drop off locations they guarantee next day results
turk here.
you have to go to a hospital anon. i've never even heard self-testing.
wtf kys weirdo. you are not even a turk.

Not them but there is a Chinese diaspora practically everywhere and they are super friendly and helpful if you speak Mandarin.
t. laowai mandarin speaker

I go to Macau alot..... fuck mainland china
I'm the second poster, knowing Mandarin will help you
1. not get fucked over in China and its derivatives (HK, Macau, ROC, Japan)
2. I have literally never been to a large city for more than a week and not seen a Chinese person
3. You can't just guess what someone is saying in Chinese, like you can in French, Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch... admittedly you can in Esperanto but there's other reasons for its use
They speak cantonese in two of those place you filthy white dog.
Also you'll get tentacle raped speaking chink to a nip.
I'm not talking about speaking Mandarin there obviously (I included fucking Japan), I'm talking about reading signs, menus, any other text you'd want to understand

We don't fucking know. The Olympics are this July and no tourists are allowed in. Do the math.
>Ok, but seriously, when will Japan be open to tourists? Give me an estimate.
WE DON'T KNOW. Prime minister Suga doesn't know. The CDC doesn't know. It's the blind leading the blind.
>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.

Install the "Official Japan Travel App"
