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.

Cruises are a total waste of time and money. Small rooms, meh food, mediocre entertainment, and if you actually enjoy a stop you're fucked because you've got like 10 hours to enjoy it before you leave it. Save the money and go on a real vacation instead of that trash.

Just got back from Malaysia and I could not recommend Langkawi island enough. Beautiful beaches with amazing views, the softest sand in the world, and barely any tourists. Alcohol isnt stupid cheap but cheaper than the US. The local food is bomb and everyone is friendly. English is pretty widly spoken too. Peak destination choice
>>
I know it sounds pretty boomer tier, but my wife and I go to Sandals every other Valen(((stein's))) Day. All inclusive including booze and transfers, not crowded, several choices for restaurants (pretty decent food). We spend a week lying on the beach, snorkeling, etc. It's nice to spend time with no phone, no wallet, no car keys. Pretty good way to recharge for about four grand. We quit worrying about the whole Real Traveler thing decades ago and now we just go where we enjoy it.

Depends on what you wanna do. You can try to go to Salinas and get a ferry to go to Caja de Muerto and swim there. Caribbean sea is crystal clear and has few waves. A family friend takes us there on his boat and its fantastic. Closeby you have the Yunque rainforest, la mina trail may be shut down but i know for a fact that there is one waterfall open. Tinajas or charco frio for cliff diving. Playa escondida (hidden beach) in fajardo is nice as well. Bioluminescent bay in fajardo, la parguera or mosquito bay (vieques) are a must do at night.

Theres a ferry service in fajardo that takes you to vieques or culebra, two smaller islands that are still part of PR, worth visiting. Culebra has beautiful beaches while vieques has the bio bay. You'd need to get there around 5am, buy a ticket (like $5) and wait until its departure time around 8 or 9am. People flood the place early cause cheap af and very limited seating. Try to do an overnight if you decide to go. Arecibo is a waste of time btw, you're only there for muh telescope but its really nothing that impressive compared to the natural beauty of the island. Do go to old san juan, if you like cigars visit Casa de Montecristo next to sunglass hut and la fortaleza. If drinks go to La Factoria (swing past saloon doors next to the bar, place is actually multiple bars joined together), if beers Taverna de Lupulos (they have a backyard patio to smoke in). You can drive to the mountains and get real PR food at a place called Lechonera El Cuñao to get morcillas (blood sausage), lechon (spitroasted pork), arroz con longaniza (rice and beans). Near your hotel is La Parrilla in the Luqillo Kiosks, get the whole fried snapper there. If you're near the metro area at any point go to Cayo Caribe and get a seafood mofongo. You cant leave pr without trying mofongo.
>>
>>1745756
Cont. If you're in the metro area do vsj (old san juan) after lunch, condado is a good place to daywalk in and its got a great casino at la concha hotel. La placita in santurce is a hangout on friday nights, la penultima is a good cocktail bar to go to there and has cheaper options like a beer and shot for $7. Calle loiza off of condado is busy friday night as well.

How hard is it to get into Mecca as a non-Muslim? If found out, what are the consequences?

Are hostels worth it for long term stays?I've never been In one. Im thinking of getting a private room in one in germany for two weeks - seems like the best of both worlds of having my own space while not being isolated and doing hostel group activities and whatnot.

Should I pay extra for the hotel?

I'm a single mid-20s male

Oh look, this thread again.

Depends on what you want. If you get a private room in a hostel it is no different that a hotel room. You will end up sitting inside inside it and not meeting anyone, it's human nature when you are in a unfamiliar foreign place . Make sure to research the hostel before hand. Mega-hostels which are common in Germany dont usually foster a social environment besides the bar downstairs.

Not sure I agree with this. At these for the first few nights/place, stay in the dorms for the shitty experience. Then if you hate it, book a single room.

Most of my quality hospital experiences have been from meeting people in the common area.

Spanish women are lazy and complain a lot, also a lot more liberal than you'd think (if you have a problem with that). You'll find different sorts physically, but many are very short and for every 1 hot Spanish woman there are 3 short fugly goblinas. Personally I think Spanish women are overrated.

I would try Argentina, Uruguay or Colombia.

I went in November. It was brilliant for Christmas markets but you're out of luck on that now.

It's comfy but a day or two is all you really need. As for things to do...

Try the judd mat gaardebounen at Restaurant Um Dierfgen

Walk around the old centre, in particular be sure to visit around the Rue Plaetis section.

I honestly don't know what else to suggest. Rent a car and tour elsewhere for one of the days ?

With the exception of Lithuania and Estonia they're all a bit run down and grim, but interesting all the same.

However, I've never been to any of these, is it vastly different and worth it ?

There are trains that run from Moscow down into all of these countries, and flights are doable, too.
Things are affordable in all the stans. I was doing research into travel in this part of central asia.
Kyrgyzstan has very pretty scenery around the Lake Karakol area. Kazakhstan is probably more authentic in the area around Almaty. The planned capital Nur-Sultan (called Astana until recently) doesn't seem to interesting.
If you're into history, Uzbekistan has cool bazaars and mosques from the Silk Road era. I imagine food and drink is cheap and tasty there, too.
Turkmenistan is impossible without an "organized group tour" and an expensive visa, probably not worth your time.
Tajikistan is perhaps the most interesting of the stans. There's a road called the Pamir Highway that makes a loop through the country. I attached a pic. It's very beautiful, and it's something I want to do eventually. "The road on the roof of the world," is what it's called. If you're interested, the Wahkan Corridor of Afghanistan -- one of the world's most remote and isolated places -- is relatively easily accessible.
Hope this gives you some insight into this part of the world, OP

Latvia has an unfortunate number of rushins (read: that's bad) and never invested in its infrastructure to the same degree as its baltic neighbours. The small towns also seem less orderly and well kept than similar sized places in LT or EE. I am a balt pro so you can trust me.

I have a few questions, mostly out of curiosity, about renting accommodations in USA.
It's my first time going and I'm wondering why renting over there is so expensive compared to, well, most of the world. I've traveled a bit (just a bit) and you can rent a very good hotel in other countries for the same price you pay for a budget, and sometimes even shitty, 1-2 stars hotel.
Also why there are a lot of hotels that are.. well, far away from everything? Usually you can find suitable accommodations near the central zones but in USA everything seems to be far away and a lot of hotels seem to be next to highways.

So why?

Hotels are overpriced in America. No matter what city or community, you need to stay in a crack house used by hookers to get a price close to moderate Japanese or Hong Kong hotel. The reason is because municipalities and states charge high taxes and hotel owners use price fixing to keep the cheapest all about the same level. Same is true in UK and Canada. This is one reason why Airbnb and Craigslist are so popular.

Oh fuck, so much this.

Seattle back around 2002, I was friends with a guy who managed and part-owned a hotel. Seattle decided to blow up their old stadium-and-exhibition-center (the Kingdome) and finance TWO new palaces-for-billionaires PLUS a new exhibition hall. Oh, BTW, the Kingdome still wasn't paid off yet. But the sportsball teams wanted new stadiums and the city was happy to oblige because CORRUPTION!!!

Anyway, they decided to pay off the bonds they were issuing for all of this shit by taxing hotels at an additional 40%. Because, you see, out-of-towners stay in hotels, so the taxes wouldn't fall upon local residents. And why do out-of-towners stay at hotels? To go see the Mariners and Seahawks play sportsball games, of course!!! So it only makes sense to tax the shit out of hotel rooms.

Anyway, the guy went to city council meetings and told them that this was insane. The September 11th attacks had already happened, tourism was down, hotel room occupancy was almost zero, and throwing a 40% tax on top of all of that would drive occupancy down even further and put him into bankruptcy.

City didn't give a fuck. Sports palaces!

He was out of business in less than two years.

>OI BEEN TO SEA AND ASIA HOTELS ARE SO CHEAP Y DA USA NOT LOIKE DIS YA?

Because shit's expensive and we have a huge geographical infrastructure to maintain. Sure some shit is just way too expensive but airbnb exists, and people are willing to pay it. If you can't use hotels.com to find a simple cheap place then lmao. Oh wait "NOT RACIST BUT DEM BLACKS" k retard

Sup guys!

Over a month ago I posted a thread inquiring about some Russian shitholes I could visit. Many in the thread pointed me to Vorkuta. Thanks to your tips about how to travel to Russia, I can proudly say I landed here tonight.

The thing now is, I'm not really sure what to do. I'm here for five days, the snow is constantly blowing, no one speaks english, and the vibe is actually kinda dangerous lol.... I'm pretty much planning on visiting the surrounding areas and taking pictures. But in the time between that, what? Should I visit a club? Would I have any success if I did? Should I try to make a friend? So far the Russians have been unanimously unfriendly and angry. They don't even make eye contact, looking at the ground instead. Not sure how much of a scene I want to stir either.

Russian anons, or people with experience here, feel free to lend ideas
