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.

Questions That Don't Deserve Their Own Thread
>also known as /sqt/ (Stupid Questions Thread)

For (almost) any and all of your one-off questions that pertain to travel.

If your question is specific to a popular destination (such as Japan, Thailand, Italy, France, etc.), check to see if there's a relevant general before asking it here.

If your question is administrative in nature (eg. visas, passports, customs/immigration, airport/airline policies, etc.), try to be as specific as possible. Such information may include, but is not limited to: your nationality, where you're going, any layover points, etc. These details do get missed quite often, and they sometimes can make a difference.

If you are planning a trip and would like some help, try to have some idea of what you want to do. Nobody here can read your mind; you need to give us your hobbies & interests, at least.

All information in this thread and any external URLs are meant to be for reference only. Use at your own risk.

>Few weeks in vegas..

keep in mind that while prostitution is completely legal and open in many places in Nevada, it is not technically legal in Vegas.

sex work still happens there, of course, but largely in the somewhat shady and clandestine way it does everywhere else in America. most brothels like the Chicken Ranch are a long-ass drive from Vegas. also, many of them shut down for the pandemic, and may not have reopened yet.

Anyone know about tourist travel to Hungary during this pandemic shit? I want to travel there, spend 3 days (I've read about travel restrictions and such, and it seems like 72 hours will be the most I could hope for... by not being there on business, academics or professional sport). I know they need a negative test performed within 3 days of arrival.

I'm travelling from the US, I have been to a number of EU countries on 2 separate occasions in the past, so I'm familiar with having my shit in order. I'm thin and healthy, high energy (so I don't look like I could be visibly ill or at risk).

The "latest" info I saw was that hotels are not to welcome tourists, but much info hasn't been updated on websites since May. That's why I'm here, perhaps someone who does business there or a Hungary or V4 fren who knows what's actually going on.
>>
>>1939765
Searching in German (as its a language i can read). Hotels were not allowed to open for tourists and that there was a 8pm to 5am curfew until jan 11th (page said it was updated today, originally created on Dec 15th but doesnt mention if this was renewed or not). EU citizens arent allowed to travel there until at least Feb 1st, but also to be reviewed based on case numbers.

Well, /trv/tards I think the smart play at this point with Biden announcing an extra 400 a week on top of what you'd be making on unemployment and him planning to expand the benefits until September is to claim unemployment and just go where ever we can. Who's doing this? Where are you going? I'm thinking of living it up down in Mexico on the 4k a month I'll be making.

You need to be fairly careful. Never, ever log into your state's unemployment website from overseas. Unless you're planning to call in all of your certifications using a U.S. SIM, you'll need to find a trustworthy friend who lives within 20 or so miles of your house to do it for you.

If you log into your benefits account from abroad, you'll be immediately blacklisted and probably hit with a misrepresentation investigation.

First time going to Europe (except London) for two weeks.

I was thinking about about doing a road trip, trying to avoid the dangerous places.

Between Rome and Barcelona, i'll try to either by plane or maybe a boat, but there's not other solutions. What do you think?

Saving up for a solo visit to Russia. My favorite part of visiting places is meeting locals and having a few drinks with them. Some places this is easier than others. Are Russians open to drink with strangers/foreigners? Is it easy to strike up a conversation with one at a bar?

Thanks for the input. I'll skip Nizhniy, then. I do like seeing some of the Soviet architecture, but it was never the main reason for visiting a city when I last went to Russia. I definitely want to visit the military museums in Volgograd; that's the main reason for going down there. I would like to visit Uzbekistan as well (I just need a visa as an American).

I'd disagree with him, for me NN is qiute nice, at least Upper embankment area and Pokrovskaya st are well. Have a day there, probably you'd enjoy.

European student here, currently applying for the year abroad. Initially I thought the US would've been the best place to go to but all the info I have on it comes from the media and 4chan that basically make it seem like a shithole on the decline. BLM riots, MAGA, COVID conspiracy theorists, affirmative action, income inequality, lazy fatfucks are all making it look horrible and now I'm considering simply doing an Erasmus somewhere else in the EU. Is it really as bad as it seems?

Yes, people are quick to defend the majority of poor people, portraying them as helpless victims, but anyone who spent a few years with them absolutely understands that they are adults that should be responsible for their actions but prefer to act like children.

Every poorfag I knew who worked hard and intelligently ended up living decently. Every poorfag I knew who refused to work, spent their money on trash, refused to learn the basics of cooking, is still poor.

Does that mean there are no exceptions ? No, there certainly are, some people have been particularly unlucky, some are disabled and we as a society should give them the tools to work for a decent quality of life. But most people are sad clichés and do not change. They work hard and intelligently, or they don't.

I don't think it's sustainable in the long term, but as a foreigner doing a year in University you'll be fine. Where are you from and where are you intending to go? This will really impact any culture shock you might have. American cities tend to be dirty and filled with subhumans, but I've travelled pretty extensively in Europe and seen a lot of places on the same level. It's a massive country though and there's a lot of nice places. If you rent a car or have the patience for the terrible American cross-country public transit you can go visit some unique natural wonders.
>BLM riots
Over with until the next time a groid gets capped.
>MAGA
Trump lost so probably over with. Also you shouldn't really believe the stereotype our media loves to push of rednecks shooting Euros with shotguns for asinine reasons.
>COVID conspiracy theorists
If you are afraid enough of the virus that you think this is a major issue, then you really shouldn't be considering travelling.
>affirmative action
The only time this could possible affect you is during the application process. We are not yet at the point where the candidates are so underqualified our basic infrastructure is having frequent failures.
>income inequality
Stay out of black neighborhoods.
>lazy fatfucks
Sadly there's nothing you can do about this but ignore them. If you're particularly spiteful kick over one of their fat carts at the grocery store. Cow tipping is a fun past time.

I'm from Italy. Never been outside of Europe and was considering China/SK, but my parents really want me to go to the US for the exchange, probably because of how it was back in the day. However, because of all the shit I'm seeing on the internet i'm not really sure it's worth it.

Also consider here in Italy society is different from the US. I'm still living with my parents (as are 80% of the students in my uni) and going against their will is quite a big deal

>>1939766
The only city I’d reccomend in the USA for a young person is Miami. That’s the only city that can match the fun/liveliness of Europe in America. The only place in America that comes close to replicating it’s fun is Vegas, but Vegas is more of a weekend destination and is a weird place to live.

Miami has the weather, the beaches, the girls, and some decent schools too. USA is literal trash for a young person to live in anymore. You can’t even have a drink on the beach legally (except in Miami).

But in general you are better off a different country with ERASMUS.

I heard their feet smell really bad, my mate went there and I couldn't tell if he was having laugh, but he wouldn't stop going on about how Koreans feet smell bad. Maybe it was some sort of autism on his part or travel induced paranoia but he told me he would be eating at a restaurant, when a faint draft would start permeating the air around him with a smell of cheddar cheese and bacon, only growing more intense, he would look around and see the people laughing and would start to picture their smelly toes wiggling around in their shoes. Everywhere he went somehow there would emerge a tinge in the air. He went on a date with a girl and halfway through the night to his astonishment that familiar odour appeared, he had to get out of there. So I don't know, does this sound true to anyone?

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.
>How do I travel by public transport?
I recommend the "Official Japan Travel App". It's free and does a good job of planning routes using public transportation.

No it doesn't. If I don't take the vaccine I have a very small chance of dying from the coof. If I do take the vaccine I have a slightly larger chance of dying, plus a very small chance of going blind, plus a very small chance of going deaf, plus a very small chance of bells palsy, plus a very small chance of suicidal thoughts, plus a very small of chance of my entire central nervous system frying, plus a very small chance of...

So no. I will not be a guinea pig. You can enjoy your pseudo-immunity that only works if you believe hard enough. Because that's how science works, right? You have to believe in it? Just like those healing crystals new age girls use.

>>1939773
Take the anti-vax dick out of your mouth and actually look at the numbers on the odds of any of those things happening. The stats VASTLY outweigh getting the vaccine as being safer by several orders of magnitude. This is the same level of autism as claiming flying is more dangerous than driving because it "feels" like it, when the numbers give an opposite story.

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'm flying to Mexico to visit my e-gf at the end of January / start of February. How do I get ready for my trip? Any visa shit I should take care of first? Any COVID crap I should be aware of? Also, I'm technically a Mexican citizen so it shouldn't be a problem to visit, but my only Mexican identification is my voter ID card lol.


On another note, am I weird for wanting to move to Mexico? I know it's a shithole but honestly so is the USA. Might as well live in a comfy and cheap shithole with my USD savings than continue being depressed here is my idea... thoughts?
