Has anyone here has visited Russia? How's the country like? Are people nice? How much Russian do you need before going there? If you've visited, would you go back? It's Russia still as dangerous as it was back in the 90s or not anymore?

Just ask a travel agency specializing in Russia, they will always find a way.

Best if Russians used it too, go find some. Or at least ask at officials like the embassy ot the tourist minstery what they recommend.

I grew up in Germany and paid 40% taxes which made it impossible to improve ones life with hard work. Everyone is just looking for the best way to earn money without doing anything of value and the whole culture is completely rotten due to this corruption. That’s why I live in america now.

I'm not worth seven figures but I love living in the US, especially after living in Asia and the Middle East. YMMV depending on your location in America though.

what would be a cool way to live for you?
do you have a job that you need to be in a hustling and bustling city?
can you live in a rural area?
are you in a pretentious industry?
are you single, do you have a family? are you close to your parents and siblings?

being in an area between rural and small town, while not having too long of a drive to a decent airport could be pretty comfy if you had a spouse already

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

For most of your one-off questions that pertain to travel.

If you want to discuss or argue about COVID-19, vaccines, or politics, take it to another thread or even another board.

The answer to most questions regarding COVID-19-related travel restrictions is "We don't fucking know."

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

If your question is about an administrative or procedural matter (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; tell us your hobbies & interests, at least.

The daily schedule changes. Restaurents are definitely closed during the day but they still open at sun set. People generally have a meal meal at home and then they go outside and hangout in cafes and have fun chat with friends over a diabeetus inducing desert. Muslims are more charitable in this period and will certainly invite you to share a meal in their home.

How early should I book stuff? As soon as it becomes available, or does it make sense to wait for possible disounts
>>
>>2129761
>Hotels
As soon as possible. If prices go down later down the line, it's usually pretty easy to cancel/re-book/price-match. Many hotels have a generous cancellation window, usually 2-14 days before the day of check-in. If your trip is like 6 months away, that gives you some breathing room.

>Flights
Don't really have any good advice on this one. It's usually pretty hard to back out of a flight once you've paid for it. Also, prices can fluctuate for seemingly no good reason. While it's possible for a price to drop substantially, it's just as likely it'll spike up. I usually stick with a price that I feel comfortable with, and if it goes down later, I just laugh it off nervously. If it goes up instead, I consider it a bullet dodged.

>Museum/event tickets
ASAP. Forget the prices, you should be more worried about them being sold out, especially if it's a popular event.

Mine are Paul Theroux books,Travels with Charley by Steinbeck, Blue Highways by William Least Heat Moon and Carpet Wars by Christopher Kremmer

I like Greek history and writers a lot and really wish to visit. Especially keen to see historic sites but I want to see a variety of its beauties. Want to visit Cyprus as well since the culture is similar I imagine and it looks beautiful from what I've seen. Any Greek bros know any lesser known things to do/see? Any other tips? I'm a white 24 yr old male for reference.

Just check where the ferrys go from and book accomadation on the next island the day before. A lot of the islands have different feels to them and you might enjoy a couple of days at a quiet one before a couple of days at a busy one.

chalkidiki is paradise for me (pic rel, i walk across the beach from left part of photo all the way to the right end in a couple hours) but full of balkan tourists in most places

mountain part of greece is underrated, search for stuff like zagorochoria

Another thread on this beautiful yet underrated secret garden that is Taiwan

Pros :

>STEM fields are pretty well paid, it's THE STEM heaven in Asia along with Japan.
>purchasing power isn't bad at all (SEA is better but still, bretty good)
>Rent is ridiculously low in cities. Can get a 500$ studio downtown(e.g Ximending)
>Taipei is a very green city, full of trees and beautiful sceneries, it can get from very urban to very rural rather quickly
>Lots of traditional/family restaurants
>The only country that is still ok with welcoming foreigners with open arms (of course, the covid lockdown doesn't help, but that's usually the general case), visa runs are possible, and one of the only country in Asia where you have a real chance of getting citizenship if you wish so
>Gold card for digital nomads and highly skilled folks
>WHV for youngins willing to give it a shot, with very few strings attached (you can work any job on a whv contrary to japan)
>Correct me if i'm wrong but you can work on a student visa if you get a work permit
>people are overall nice (Chinese people as they were supposed to be without the Cultural Revolution), you'll always find someone who speaks english, and most people aren't afraid of dealing with you even if you don't speak their language. Isn't tourist focused so scams and foreigner-oriented bullshit is rare. Hospitality IS a thing.

Thinking about visiting somewhere in East Africa next year. Probably visiting in the range of 1 to 2 weeks for one country.

I read some blogs about trips there. They all arrived in the airport, got a car with armed guard awaiting for them there, saw few sights, get in the hotel, do the same the next day and then go to the airport to get out. Doesnt seem as a place you can wander around and see different things. Its just that famous beach and black hawk down sight, if its safe enough to get out of the car.

Not legal but like robbery and murder, laws don’t matter if they aren’t enforced

OP, like every other place of poverty and extremism, this place is dangerous. It’s unlikely to be killed for jokes, but as a woman there is a risk to be raped and in general there are high odds to be robbed, mocked or even kidnapped. If you stay in populated areas, know how to behave in such places and defend yourself, and travel with militia when outside, there are many far more dangerous cities in the US and europe than over there. Atleast civil courage exists there and thugs will be beaten to death if they misbehave in public.

What is your idea of a good woman, then? Why do you think that your personal opinion is going to be the same as everyone else's? Is there a standard for a good woman? Why are so many men not going after those women, then? Why are there so many "bad" women? I know on that last question you're going to blame bad men, but I never met you or most women and projecting her realizations onto actions that I didn't do to her (again, never met her) is ridiculous.

According to the World Bank's International Comparison Program (2017), Egypt is the cheapest country in the world regarding Actual Individual Consumption, at 25% of the world average.

It's also the cheapest for Food and Non-alcoholic Beverages, at 50%; for Transport, at 32%; and for Restaurant and Hotels, at 26%.

Ukraine is the second cheapest country in the world btw, at 32% Actual Individual Consumption. It's the cheapest country in the world when it comes to Alcoholic Beverages, Tobacco and Narcotics, at 31%.

The other countries that make up the top 10 are Kyrgyzstan, Sudan, Azerbaijan, Tajikistan, Myanmar, Sierra Leone, Belarus and Nepal. The next 10 countries on the Restaurant and Hotels ranking are Sudan, Nepal, Tanzania, Ukraine, Madagascar, Ethiopia, Guinea, Bhutan, Algeria and Vietnam.

https://www.worldbank.org/en/news/slideshow/2020/10/20/pli-chart2

Do these metrics surprise you? What are your experiences traveling to these places? Is Egypt really the ultimate cheap traveling destination?

my life is crumbling apart so this is my plea for recommendations on a city to visit as my last ditch effort to feel something. ok, that might be a little dramatic.

I'd be a vaxxed 26-year-old woman traveling alone. I have a passport and a budget of ~$1500. I've traveled alone before and I've been to Seattle, NYC, Chicago, DC, Savannah, and LA.

when traveling, I really do love just people watching. my favorite memories when traveling are those times I've gotten invited to an underground rave by a local or when I could get blacked out drunk and eat a free hotdog and make out with a stranger only to never talk to him again, shit like that. so... that's the kind of vibe I'm going for. I like dive bars, book stores, museums, and good food.

at this point, NYC is first in mind but anyone have any other suggestions? I've gone there solo already (and loved it), but part of me thinks going somewhere fresh may do my depressed ass more good.

thanks /trv/. <3

Ignore that other poster. Downtown is shitty and filled with homeless and junkies. Rent a room in East Honolulu (East of Diamond Head). Having roommates sucks to some extent, but making connections with people who have been here longer than you or have resources (cars, surfboards, friends) that can help you goes a long away. If you don't want a car, you could get a 50cc moped. You can get a new one with a year warranty for ~$800 plus tax. They get 70+ mpg and you can use the bike lanes and park for free pretty much anywhere.

Awesome. Was gonna tell you to sell the car and anything you don't absolutely need, but this is one time in your life being a begpacker sets you up to succeed.

>>2129404
>Downtown is shitty
It's not *THAT* bad, and it's got a lot of good nightlife spots, which means he'd be living close to said spots, which makes it that much easier to bounce back to this place with an ovulating Asian QD.

East Honolulu is also sexy, though.

To that anon, having roommates won't be a strike against you when it comes to women like it is in most places, but not having them is definitely working for you, does that make sense? I'd get your own place and just make friends, which, as I said, is easy if you put any effort in. If you're able to travel SEA by yourself, aimlessly (I don't say aimlessly like it's a bad thing) I have faith in your ability to organically make connections here.

>50cc moped
Seconded. This anon knows his shit. Also, seriously you DO NOT want to live outside of Honolulu, the commute will make you lose your shit during rush hour.

I will be heading to San Diego over Halloween weekend and am tempted to visit Tijuana on my own for 1-3 days. I don't speak a lick of Spanish and I've only been to a strip club once in NYC.

Any tips on how to not die? Is it worth making an effort to find a group beforehand to at least make it to my hotel / club without getting jumped? I am somewhat of a sperg but have lived in "bad" parts of Brooklyn for 6 years now so at least know when to avoid ppl who are obviously out of their mind and dangerous.

Stay within a radius of about 2 blocks from Hong Kong club. Travel in a pack or keep your brim low. Don’t get sucked into any kind of random dude trying to sell you anything etc on the street. Take a taxi where you need to go at night. went there in 2016 had a blast. Remember, no random vatos bro. My friend got all his shit stolen buying Xanax, getting a lap dance “paid” for him, and then having the backpack stolen under his chair. Had everything in it. Phone passport you name it. Eyes up nigga. Fuck a hooker from Hong Kong they have the baddies in there
