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.

Can we have a China thread?

There are a couple of threads about China right now but one is e celebs and shitposting and the other is about Mandarin.

Sort of a general thread. Feel free to discuss China TRAVEL in this thread.

>From here on is my personal questions
I have always wanted to go to china. I know it has a lot of negative aspects. Feel free to discuss those if you have actually had first hand experience. Negatives aside, I still want to go.

Who here usd actually been to China? Where did you go? How was it?

I am trying to plan a trip. 2 weeks minimum, 1 month max. I want to see the standard stuff of course. Beijing, Great wall, Xian, Teracotta warriors, and Shanghai.

I also want to go to Yangshuo/Guilin and try and stay in one of the minority villages in the Longji rice terraces. Anybody have advice or experience?

“Varieties” would be more accurate because some of them really are dialects like the Hokkien spoken in Singapore, Taiwan and Southern Fujian are dialects to each other and not languages. The debate of what constitutes a language vs dialect is far more complex than mutual intelligibility especially with China which has a dialectal continuum.

白酒 or "white liqour" it's a staple of Chinese alcohol and each city has their own take. 'Mao Tai' is a style which is meant to be both amongst the most prestigious and most harsh (it's like literally swallowing fire)

You can say that about any language. Greek and English have the same origin.

Any experiences with getting serious with Chinese girls?

I'm wary about the whole helicopter parents thing but this girl I met is pretty independent and middle class (more dosh than me, nice car etc). She also has been raising hell with her folks because they want her to stop seeing me and pick some alpha Chang instead

Any advice?

First time travelling solo anywhere and I chose Amsterdam, I'm an Arab born and raised in the UK what are some things I can do in Amsterdam solo and what are some things to avoid doing?

how likely is it for me to get fucked up/stabbed?
>>
Amsterdam is like the one place you shouldn't do solo
Please tell me you at least booked into a decent hostel so you can meet people
>>
>>1622432
I picked a pretty good hostel in the middle of the city, separate pods but a lot of inhouse activities.

did I fuck up picking Amsterdam? I'm not too worried about being alone, I'm more worried about getting jumped, I can always just get plastered and wander around to see where the night takes me

>>1622195
Can confirm. Turn up ~45min before departure, scan ticket, x-ray bags, scan your passport, sigh at the scanner, show it to the bored border clerk instead, get a drink in the waiting area, charge your phone, then find your allocated seat on the train. 4 hours later you're in Amsterdam.

What you're describing is what most people will do, I don't think "riding the trans-siberian" is usually understood as just riding straight from end to end.

I've done it 20 minutes before departure, left work at 17.00 and got the 17.30 train to Paris. Air travel could be like that if it wasnt for all the numpties.
>>
>>1622425
It was worth it for me just for being able to walk off the train and straight out into the middle of a city, which simply isn't possible with air travel. Plus you get a *better* baggage allowance on the train than you would with a cattle flight.

London to Amsterdam, direct, for thirty-five quid one way. I'm a convert desu

guy you are quoting here... to be fair I have enjoyed a brief trip to Vancouver and Vancouver Island/Victoria. It was a soothing an beautiful trip, but definitely a very American-Boomer-from-the-midwest-with-an-RV kind of spot. The rest of the country is sort of a big meh from me though, at least from what i’ve seen. No offense; the people I’ve met are nice, I just have other priorities when it comes to places that I’d travel.

You are talking like vast untouched stretches of beautiful nature in a safe high income country is a shitty thing. Are you an eastern fag or something?

OP. You will have a blast. Go stampeding then rent a car and explore the AB/BC wilderness areas. The scenery is top notch. Rent a car and drive west. You won't regret it.

Going to Dublin with the other half next month for 2 nights. We've had a brief look at the places we can go and see and we definitely are going to the Guinness Storehouse, the Jameson's Distillery, Dublinia, Oscar Wilde's old house and the small cluster of galleries and museums in the South Eastern part of town.

Any other recommendations for a good craic?

Also any insider knowledge of the place would be much appreciated, we already know not to go to the North side after dark but this could just be stories of stereotyping nature.
>>
Dublin's tiny, just go out and you'll have a good time. Sounds cheesy but the locals are the best thing there..
There's good pubs everywhere but I liked O'Donoghue's. Trinity College is worth a visit too.

Dude, there's nothing wrong with "going wild" but spreading aids around anywhere outside of africa isn't going to go over well anywhere you are.
Men have less than a 1% chance to get it, while women have over 90% chance, from someone that's hiv positive. Stop derailing the thread.

That said, if you tinder or go on date in asia or w/e you can run around fucking a new girl every night easily. When i was single i had girls with serious filipino boyfriends wanting me to impregnate them because they wanted a hapa baby.
>>
>>1621952
>date in asia
>girls with serious filipino boyfriends
I think the only thing serious the girls on that site have are some serious STIs. But hey... If you value quantity over quality you could probably fuck a different girl every night. You'd have to be a completely trashy person yourself who would stick your dick in anything that moves. I've had dates with many many girls here. Sometimes we would chat, I'd ask them if they would fuck me and they said yes, then they would show up and that wouldn't end up happening. Sometimes they flake out. Sometimes I don't want to fuck them because they don't look good enough compared to their jpg files on the internet or I just don't like them. I personally feel that if you would fuck someone you can't really stand to be around, if you would invite that person back to your room, you're a complete moron. With the time and money spent to arrange a bad sexual experience that will be memorable for the wrong reasons there are a lot of other things I could've did instead. But I guess a lot of people don't think like that, it's just "fuck fuck fuck" all the time.
>>
One final thought, reality rarely lives up to the expectation of your fantasies. When it does you shouldn't just think to yourself "well that was fun onto the next!" Find yourself a girl that rides dick right, has a pleasant personality, and doesn't ask you for money. Even if you don't want to make her your girlfriend or wife you can keep her around as long as you're here and have a great time.

Do Filipinas actually have a thing for white dudes or is that just more of the "asians like white guys" myth?

>or is that just more of the "asians like white guys" myth?
It's this. They prefer black men, just like every other woman in the world.
