But I don't relax on long flights, especially international. I watch one movie and then I'm getting up and walking around the plane and hanging out in the galleys, going up and down stairs if it's a 2 level plane, stretching, just generally moving around for the whole flight. I don't know how anyone can stand otherwise. I can't fucking sleep on an airplane, what do you think I am a baby?

use this thread to discuss tourism in PH and share experiences and tips.

president Marcos is lifting the mask mandate so hopefully they'll drop the meme flu restrictions (see OHP) for EOY.
I'm planning to go there and I hope they'll follow Thailand model and not China or US model so that pureblood chads can enter the country without hassles.

Well, here's my worst trip. Waking up in Hotel Shahams'abad in Mauritania, and holy shit. It's the fucking worst. I hate Mauritania. There's this random guy crouched in the corner of the room. Either he came in during the night while I was asleep or he was already there but I didn't see because it was so dark due to the lack of indoor lighting. He didn't speak a word of english but I managed to somewhat gesture into understanding that he was there standing guard over me. I checked my wallet, 50 bucks were gone. He stared at me and kept repeating "Tip. Tip." I left the hotel, and the receptionist wanted to complain that I was lodging in the wrong room, and that the local militia was coming to do what they call "Al-majalavat". From my understanding it means that you will get beaten and dropped off in the desert. I didn't want any trouble, so I had to give up my 500$ custom embroidered Rick and Morty leather jacket. This shitty day couldn't get any worse, right? I was looking for directions on my googlephone, and the last time the maps were updated was in 2007. The road data is completely out of sync. I ended up just trying to get to the plaza in Shahams'abad, because I knew there were people there from the Mauritanian Government Tourism and Recreation Board. I was desperate to just get the fuck out of this shithole, and I hadn't even seen the great sands yet like I had planned to that morning. On the way to the plaza, I notice a man wearing a thick cotton shirt that was sleeveless. The graphic on it was a black sun. I thought it was strange, and as he noticed me staring at him, he dabbed. What a weird fucking place. Just as I was a block away from the plaza, I hear a commotion in the next alley. I see what looks like it could have come straight out of a horror movie. (1/2)

Newbie to cruise ships here. I'm trying to gift my folks a 3 or 4-day cruise to the Bahamas and am looking through all the different options. Can anyone who has taken a cruise share any experience on which liner you chose and your experience? I'm trying to avoid accidentally sending my folks on a ship that is like 75% niggers. I think I can avoid that by going with the more expensive-costing liners, but I want to make sure I don't make a huge mistake in my choice.

Budget is not a concern but I'd rather not waste money just because. For example why spend 2.5x more for a suite if they aren't even going to be on the boat except to sleep, and otherwise they are disembarked, etc.

Thanks!

This was 2019 and pre covid but there was a big difference between RC and Carnival even though both were entry level. Not as big as the difference between a 3 day and 7 day tho.

Roatan, Honduras
Norwegian uses the smaller terminal along with RC. Carnival uses the big new one. There’s a lot of diving and nature excursions, and beaches and tourist bars if you don’t like that. There might be excursions to other small islands depending on who you’re with. The west side of the island is the tourist side and most of the black people live on the north side. Because /trv/ lol, Honduras has a pretty bad AIDS problem so keep that in mind.

Harvest Caye, Belize
It’s a private port for Norwegian. I haven’t been.

Costa Maya, Mexico
Very touristy. Mayan ruins, rainforest, dolphins, etc. Kinda expensive if you don’t know where to go. The ruins and dolphins are neat but kinda expensive.

Cozumel, Mexico
It’s huge and famous and has pretty much everything. Just google the things you like.

Nice thing about Roman Europe there are the famous locations with well intact structures or indepth exhibits. But also random locations or unexpected exhibits spread out everywhere. You can get to a local park of ruins that may not be an international draw but a nice place to hangout if in the area.
Like in Lyon for example they have Gallo Roman Theatres with associated museum. The theatre is open to public access people chill there all the time - its not as intact as other ones but its cool if you were already in Lyon.
Just south of Lyon is Town of Vienne - has Roman Temple, Roman Theathre, a Gallo/Roman museum/archeology site.
There are a few clusters of intact structures near south Rhone river.
The town of Orange theatre and arc de triomphe
Arles amphitheatre.
Nimes - temple and very large amphitheater + pont du gard aqueduct.

Portugal - Evora - has large temple ruins great for pictures. but if you are very autistic about it there are roman baths there aswell, city walls from 3rd century, and a medieval reconstruction of roman aquaduct. Or visitng a city like Lisbon - just wandering around you can stumble across a roman theatre excavation (its not a reason to visit the city, but its a bonus if you come across lisbon for other reasons)

Trier Germany has Porta Negra and Roman baths. sure other countries may have better but if you were trying to split time. Some churches from roman times (atleast the base of it)

England - British Museum will have a rome section. Museum of london will have a roman london section. I remember the yorkshire museum in york had a roman section. apart from having great museums that have Roman sections there are large sites. Like Hadrian's wall and nearby Vindolanda fort

figure out what duration of journey you want.
some people like travelling to a new accomodation in a different city every day or two but many get tired of this.
If you had a car it would be more doable.

If you have difficulty getting to europe it might be tempting to visit destinations all across the continent but practicality it is more enjoyable to do just one specific region, maybe have 1 long journey mid trip if you are desperate to see other things.

Presumably you are open to any interesting history/architecture but like roman the most? Because if it was any history - it can be enjoyed everywhere. If you say anything more specific of what you imagine enjoying you may get more ideas

History/Architecture and the occasional nightlife can still be enjoyed in many places that do not need to include the most famous large cities - tho it is understandable.
Many small cities have strong university culture so lots of young people. Others are renowned for their recreation whether it is a beach destination or a hiking/skiing town which also will have some nightlife - this varies on time of year obviously - particularly thinking of towns in the alps but there are cheaper mountain ranges.
Lots of young people know some English - maybe not all but the ones open to interacting with an American will try.
I assume you are 20s or younger - whatever your destination look up Erasmus nights if looking for a club. Erasmus is the European University exchange program so most will speak English.

Leaving the West general thread.

It seems inevitable, as your stomach might not be use to another country's germs/bacteria in their food, but for anyone that's had it, what kind of stuff can you do to lessen it's effects when you know you're coming down with it? Not tasking much about prevention, but more of making it a less shitty experience.

It's so common in China that 我拉肚子 is all you need to text your boss to excuse being late.

They have it all the time from the shit they eat at local places. Most consider it so normal they talk about it like less than a head cold.
They'll run to the hospital and get an IV for a cold, but won't bat an eye at a mild bout of food poisoning. "Oh, I'd better bring an extra pack of napkins when I go out today."

Next time you're at a restaurant, does the bathroom have have soap and hand-dryer? No? The kitchen staff aren't washing their hands. If they have an open kitchen, are the kitchen staff wearing gloves? No? That's the reason you're getting sick. Most food poisoning is because of cooks not washing their hands properly.

99% of the time, I prefer hotels.

The only time I would ever consider a hostel:
>real hotels are fully booked or ludicrously expensive
>there is a fun gimmick

An example of the latter being capsule beds that are commonly found in Asia, or that German hostel located inside of a Burger King that's memed here.

I am in between two jobs at the moment, and it looks like there is an administrative issue thanks to my country's dumb government that will delay my start at the new place by a month(Too complicated to explain, and I seethe when thinking about it)

Figured might as well just go to Japan for a month, so this particularly goes to anons who live there, is it mostly back to normal when it comes to tourist attractions being open and such? I know people are going to be more xenophobic but I don't care about that.

Thoughts on itineraries.
I'm not a fan, but everyone seems to have one.
Would it be a mistake to just show up in Japan without a list of things to do?
Anyone ever winged it with no plans?
>>
>>2332763
Where you're staying (what city, what hotel) each day is part of your itinerary. Surely you're planning that.
If you don't want to plan each day, which is fine, advisable even, at least have research done in advance - have a list of things to do in the area you'll be in that you can look at and pick from each day, a list of day trips, etc.
>>
>>2332763
I went for the 1st time in 2019 on a 2 week trip and only had 2 days planned out (one of which got absolutely fucked by weather) and a handful of activities, but had my hotel rooms booked and took a lot of things to do from the map in the OP. Most parts of it went pretty well, but some were a bit disastrous. Looking back I wish I'd done more prior research and planned everything out instead of winging everything, especially since I made a day trip to Kyoto but missed almost every attraction besides the Golden Temple due to my poor planning.
>>
>>2332763
Depends on how long you're staying. If you're only staying 7-10 days'ish, I would definitely have a plan. If you're staying longer, then wing it. That's at least how I did the times I went.

I have to go to Lisbon for a conference next month, and I'm thinking about staying over a few more days after conference end to go on a bender.

I'm in my 40s, so I'm not really into clubs or staying out late. My ideal weekend would involve turning up to a British expat pub at around 11 AM Saturday morning, eating a full English, and then spending the afternoon day-drinking with other 40+ year old expats who like to watch sports and complain about the locals. After grabbing an early dinner at the pub, I would stumble back to my hotel room to smoke some grass, eat junk food, and pass out while watching movies. In the morning, I would drink and smoke enough to get over the hangover, grab some brunch, and then head back to the hotel to spend the afternoon tripping on mushrooms and/or (preferably "and") DXM alone my room while watching the Qatsi trilogy. As I was coming down in the evening, I would head out for a light meal before getting obliterated at some skeevy bar. Monday morning, I would have a few drinks to take the edge off before collecting my shit and heading to the airport to return home.

That's the ideal weekend, but I'm flexible. I would also be open to stuff like visiting the morning shift at a daytime strip club or sucking off another middle-aged married guy on the DL in the toilet of bar that's gay but not flaming.

Based on the above, can anyone recommend areas to stay, places to drink, general advice? Also, what's the drug situation like? I know they're decriminalized, but are they difficult to find? While I would prefer natural weed and shrooms, I'm also okay with synthetics and research chems if that's easier. Oh, also, I speak enough Portuguese to get around, but I would prefer not to hang out with locals.

if this is all you want, then just head down to Bairro Alto and join the other druggies, you’ll get approached/propositioned/mugged in no time.
If you happen to want a lull from being a faggot, then you can check out the Belém area or head up to Sintra where the good stuff (Regaleira) is.
Frankly if it’s expats and pubs you want you’d be better off taking a train down to Algarve (Vilamoura or Albufeira) and spending a couple days there before taking a plane back from the airport in Faro.

Actually, the sounds like a really good idea. It's a few hours drive (and I like driving), and Albufeira looks to be lousy with Brits. Thanks for the suggestion. Looking around at hotels, I see a lot that mention stag-dos and other debauchery, so, if I do manage to score some drugs, I assume I won't get hassled.
>>2328654
I don't mind puke and pee-- actually, that's a good sign; it means I won't stand out if I add to it. With that said, researching this has brought back memories for the last time I was there in '07, and I remember it being a bunch of gypsies and touts and commercialism. I can't imagine it has improved since then.

I really just want to have a couple of days to get really drunk, do some drugs, maybe get a couple lap dance, and maybe bang another married dude. I'm not really a fan of the Portuguese or western Europeans, and I don't really like big cities, so, actually, Algarve is looking pretty good to me.

If you've never been to Algarve before you might have a surprisingly pleasant trip this time around.
