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.

>5% reduction in poverty between 2006 and 2015. Something that is cheered on when it comes to Cambodia and somehow not relevant when it comes to PH. Mind you, poverty has been reduced very quickly in Cambodia, but you have to be completely ignorant about local history to not see the reasons for that. IE you had tanks rolling in PP streets as late as 1997.
Wrong. Poverty was reduced from 23.3% to 17.7% in just 3 years. Meanwhile it took 6 years to reduce the poverty rate from 26.3% to 21.6% in Philippines. I don't care what "muh suffering" Cambodians had to go through. They are much better off than Filipinos now.
>You did not, or your google-fu is shit-tier. Just numbeo it if you can't be more imaginative.
Imagine actually using this. According to this, 1kg rice in Thailand is only a few cents cheaper than Philippines, when it's actually nearly twice as cheap.Philippines is actually a fucking expensive country. Expensive food, expensive electricity, expensive shit internet. They have clearly had one of the worst economic developments in the region.
>Not relevant
yup, as they leech of the poor
>You're losing your thread.I have never claimed that Gini does not matter.
ok kid
>So you mean that, ideologically, unhindered FDI is a good thing, but trickle down effects do not exist?
Has the economy trickled well down for the past fucking 20 years? Poverty actually went up until 2008,and has pathetically gone down, mostly because the only ones actually making huge increase in income are the top ones.If Cambodia has reduced their poverty rate tremendously, as has Vietnam and Thailand, then they have had successful trickling down. Philippines hasn't.Foreigners has largely ignored it and the actual FDI 5 years ago wasn't enough at all to encourage genuine industrialization. If you look at any chart on poverty reduction, you can see how pathetic Philippines has been for the past 40 years compared to rest of ASEAN which was 90% poor back then and surpassed PH

>he demands foreign investment but then simultaneously demands socialist redistribution
holy fucing shit I cannot imagine anyone can be this fucking retarded
It's like it's impossible to make the bottom 40% get more wealth without a socialist takeover.
Nigger, listen here. If the bottom 40% had jobs that actually payed them minimum wage in their respective provinces, the income inequality would be probably better than most Southeast Asian countries. The problem is, the top wealthy amass wealth through shitty noninclusive developments like malls and condos and not manufacturing and agriprocessing, which is what foreign investors want.
Once that happens, you have millions working jobs that pay minimum wage and won't have to work as a fucking pedicab driver or vulcanizing shop worker, then you will have a great country with little poverty, better Gini and at the same time a free market

Dumb faggot
>yeah, a tuk tuk driver saves enough for a pair of shoes and a middle class person saves enough to buy a nice shirt at the mall
>this is the reason your economy can't diversify. your idea of saving is oriented to MALLs rather than real estate or business. that's the reason the oligarchs build malls, fucko
Yah, a country which has one of the highest export rates in the world is somehow also a huge consumer economy(protip for you: Vietnam) Oh what's that? They have a diversified economy consisting of agriculture, exporting, domestic industry and even services.

The literal reason for all the malls is because all the malls the cronies back in the 80's developed encouraged such culture. It became a bandwagon to attend to malls. Already the share of population working in industry is going up in record numbers. Steel mills are constructed all over the country, and manufacturing FDI is reaching sky high
Holy shit just shut the fuck up you dumb downsyndrome faggot. You clearly know nothing about economy. And you are clearly low IQ wh*teoid

>the thais have a VERY solid financial infrastructure. the viets have a huge chinese upper class that do EVERYTHING, and the indos are dirt poor''
Thailand is an exception because they became more developed in the 80's and 90's. Thus they managed to fund such an infrastructure
The Hoa's in Vietnam are very scarce.
And you seem to be unaware of the Chinese population in Philippines. They can do exactly the same. But guess what. Most of Vietnam's GDP is based around agriculture and foreign invested industries like Samsung. Indons are still fairly industrialized

>rice costs more in the philippines
correct. this is mainly inflationary due to central policy

are you arguing against the idea itself? you sound like hte guy that thinks FDI is an unfettered good

the phils suffers from inflation in key sectors that permit significant FDI, namely, agriculture, tech infrastructure, land, medical, consumer, education, and the presence of remission payments from overseas labor almost ONLY into the very same industries. none of the 105 iq overseas nurses are smart enough to build factories, so they take their ill gotten overseas pay and simply force dirt poor people that might be smarter than them out of the market by bullying them via price differentials

there's no evidence at all that further FDI is going to help anyone, and plenty fo evidence it'll only further drive up inflation

full industrialization for the philippines is probably a pipe dream for all these reasons. overseas nurses need a punitive ta. they are abusing their visa status to oppress and hedge out literally every other person in the country. they're a kind of gilded upper middle class that is fucking everyone else, but the hide behind the idea they labored hard for that golden ticket

Just Google kotatsu cafe.
I booked an AirBnB room for the festival dates, but I did that way back in July. Some are probably booking for the 2020 Snow Festival already.
Going to spend Christmas and New year and some time past that at Tokyo. Trying to avoid being generic, any easy to miss places to visit during the time most museums etc. are closed, which seems to be 26.-3. time period.
Not him, but I stayed 4 nights in Kyoto in spring 2017 and didn't get to see everything I wanted to see. I had 0 issues with tourist numbers. I would go back and spend several more nights if I could.

What kind of job would that be? I lived in Japan up north while in the air force and enjoyed it except for the long work hours. I'm pursuing mechanical engineering and my girlfriend is into computer networking.

I am planning a trip to Cuba, 10-14 days, a young couple and a child (1 year old). Budget 5k, Transport to/from Cuba excluded.

Don't rush your time in Havana, especially if you're staying in La Vieja. Really nice just to walk around.

Do a day trip to Trinidad if you can.

Skip Varadero unless you're going in Summer, it only really has the beach going for it so if it's cloudy you'll get very bored.
Please elaborate, since those are not on my fav list.
Would like to travel around a bit, maybe do 3-4 day trips (maybe overnight), but keep my base in Havana.
Avoid Varadero, it's a lot more expensive than other parts of Cuba and it's fake as fuck tourist town.

Trinidad is a fun town.
The Pinal del Rio area really beautiful if you enjoy the outdoors.
Why Cuba, honestly?

I went there for a week and while the places were nice, I don't think you'd need 14 days to see everything.
Hey tnx, was already thinking is not a place I belong to. Looks disgusting, think i can get that in any resort anywhere.
Pinar looks really great, love the outdoors (for a few hours).
The 14 days duration is not set in stone. I was thinking I would do 3 day trips from Havana, Right now that would be: Pinar, Trinidad and Santa C (this one is still iffy) and one two day trip to Santiago d. C. Otherwise I would drag my ass around Havana and drink.

Just go to Scotland instead.

My parents just invited my wife and I to join them on a 9 night Mediterranean cruise. I've never been on a cruise before, any idea of what to expect? And are they really worth the price that you are paying?

Any tips would be a appreciated.
They're literally hotels on water. So if you're fine with just lounging by the pool and taking it easy then you're fine. Otherwise you'll be bored out of your mind unless you take part in the optional excursions, but that will cost you.
For the price per night you could do a 4-star holiday anywhere in the world, and be able to follow your own itinerary.
Best of all you wouldn't be contributing to the cancer that is killing Mediterranean coastal communities.
which company/ship?

If it's on your parents dime, I say go for it. But after working behind the scenes on cruise ships for 2.5 years I would never in my life pay to be on one of these.

Med ports are good for people who don't want to do excursions and just want to explore the town on their own.

Yes, I was au pair in both Switzerland and Australia. If you're young and can find a host that lives in a good hub-city then entertain their offer.

The Swiss family was stupid rich and rained money on me for taking care of their 1 son. I didn't make many local friends but I made money, had freedom in my schedule, and had some great memories. Stayed with them a year.

The Australian expat scene is great, I didn't have the freedom or make as much money but made a shit load of friends. Join an au-pair group on facebook and you'll be set with friends to adventure with.

Anything specific you want to know?
not OP but I have a couple of questions

any tips on finding rich families? I used to tutor a couple of rich kids and help them prep for elite universities. I'd like to do it again in a foreign country, I am thinking switz or hk, but I really only have my quals and connections and a lot of countries this doesn't even get me the visa

Way too late for that. If people are really afraid of kebab, Europe is the spot to avoid.

I've seen London
I've seen France
I've seen so much kebab
You'll shit your pants
I was massively disappointed in the amount of kebab in Europe. It out numbered traditional restaurants in most big cities I went to. Holy fuck trying to find a traditional place in Germany, It's all Japanese restaurants or literal sand nigger shops.

>FKK clubs are inferior to Amsterdam prostitutes
People who go to a window girl in Amsterdam are very likely to get ripped off.
The women in an FKK will be better value and far less likely to rip someone off.

That guy either never went to Amsterdam RLD, or never went to FKKs. I already answered him here >>1508853
But let me explain the typical experience with the window girls of De Wallen. You walk around in the cold, see a bunch of girls sitting behind their window with a phone in one hand and a cigarette in the other looking bitchy. When they see you approach they jump up, fake smile, tap the glass to bait you in. If you go in, they ask for the cash up front(was 50 for 15 mins), as soon as they get it they turn back into bitch mode, and the clock starts ticking. You have EXACTLY 15 mins to take your clothes off, get warmed up and do your business. FIrst they examine your dick under a lamp, wipe it with a disinfectant tissue, immediately put a condom on your flaccid dick, suck your it(poorly) for 5 mins, then you can fuck them in 1 position of their choice. All this crap is intentionally made to make you feel as uncomfortable as possible in that hopes that you will give up and leave.

Now i am not the biggest fan of Germany since the new BBBJ law, but the FKK experience is much better. You go in, take a shower, relax, have some drinks/food, talk to different girls, decide what you want, have a nice 30 minute session, then pay the girl. Some girls will shower with you after. It is true that not all the FKK girls are as good looking as the window girls, but you can still find some that are, and aside from some upselling you don't have to worry about getting scammed like you would in Amsterdam

end thread
with the bbbj upselling in germany (frankfurt in particular) switzerland is entering the picture in terms of value, especially if your home currency is strong against the swiss franc.
I agree, at the moment Globe Zurich is superior to any german FKK. There is no upselling allowed, BBBJ is always included. Yes you pay slightly more, but when you factor in the upselling crap you would have to deal with in germany it is not so bad, and the girls are hotter. Germany isnt what it once was.

Georgia and Ukraine are pretty good options OP, like others mentioned. The biggest problem would be the language barrier though. Russian would be ok in either country but more so Ukraine. If you want to wait until the spring/summer Kiev is beautiful and fun in that time. People party year around in Ukraine/Georgia, but during the summer there are all kinds of festivals and events going on. Maybe you could go to Saint Peterburg in June/July for the white nights, plus if you wait a while and go abroad in a few months it would give you time to learn some of the language in whatever country you choose.
For 3 months

Turkish/Turkic people celebrate Nevruz. Even governors join celebrations in Turkey.

Some tweets from Erdogan: English: https://twitter.com/RT_Erdogan/status/579234740810747904

Kurdish: https://twitter.com/RT_Erdogan/status/579232921460072448

Turkish: https://twitter.com/RT_Erdogan/status/579219896120303617
The Turkish government is appropriating Noruz to destroy Kurdish identity. Celebrating noruz has only been legal since 2000. Very interesting you refer to wikipedia to show me unconvincing "proof" Turks celebrate noruz, when they really don't, yet you ignore what it says about Kurds.
>it is ours to begin with
He said noruz is a Turkish holiday, which it clearly isn't.

2 replies omitted. Click here to view.

You mean to say, you have done it before in March? How was the weather holding up for you bck then? Any snow gear required?

I know the general.. weather isn't predictable and prepare for the worst and that March is still kind of considered winter in the highlands.
Any tips on preparing would be appreciated.
You'll definitely be dealing with snow; I've experienced snowstorms in Glenorchy in April.
If you're prepared to camp in those conditions, go for it. It'll be beautiful and best of all completely deserted. The trail doesn't stray far from civilization so you can bail out if you need to.
DIdn't intend to camp due to logistics. Don't want to bring a lot of gear a cross the ocean. Will hostels / hotels be open in March? I hoped to get easy spots since, as you said, not a lot of people around.
this is in march

anyone any idea how they get such stable smooth footage, especially when walking or moving the camera?
