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.

I don’t understand traveling or how it works growing up so fucking poor ive never traveled

How the fuck do you pick a hotel? How the fuck do you afford it? It’s like 300 a night for the cheapest shit you have to book it in advance. I’m disabled and have chronic fatigue so having to pick a certain date to feel good and just go sounds hard for me plus you have to line everything up with your return flight and the booking on the room ending and it costs like $1700 a week.

How the fuck is this possible?

/Trv/ meetup?
trv~2
I've only been on this board for a few years but I've never seen a meetup extensively discussed. I've heard others have met up and some threads were people happen to have similar plans and discuss meeting up, but I've noticed both myself and other people on this board would welcome the idea of getting more /trv/ friends since it's often a lonely hobby.

Not sure if a mass meetup would ever actually happen but do people want to discuss plans for when stuff starts opening up (or even before then)? Some anons might notice they have similar plans, or you might want to tag along with someone if it sounds cool, or you're not picky but just like the idea of making a /trv/ buddy?

Might be best to describe what sort of a person and traveller you are

Due to popular demand (two people) in the non-autistic map thread, here’s a thread about Mauritania.
Feel free to ask any questions about traveling that country if it intrigues you, and share experiences or photos if you‘ve been there already.

To those of you in relationships: is it weird to consider travelling without your significant other someday? My gf has a deadly peanut allergy. That alone makes it so I couldn't ever go to many countries in Asia with her. But beyond that, there are countries in South America (namely Argentina) that I would like to visit someday that she doesn't care for.

solo in russia
B3CDBA69-3904-49A1-8A2C-5C32E3E946AE
I’m a little bit autistic and obsessed with Russia and I dream of escaping there one day to fuck around and travel alone. I’d love for my friend to come with me but realistically I’d enjoy being alone. How safe would it be? Would Russian men show interest in a young girl being here alone? I’m not saying I’d reject any male attention thrown at me but I don’t want to be paranoid the whole time about drunk gopniks hitting on me. I want to visit cities and towns full of old soviet buildings and memorials and just enjoy the atmosphere of it all. Riding the trans Siberian is definitely one of my options. I can speak basic Russian, so conversation with a local would be no problem. Anything about solo travelling in Russia would be nice.

Do you think Covid travel bans will be gone by fall?
abe
Hey /trv/ this is more of a rant but I just need someplace to get this out of my system. For context, I am a 3rd-year college student who was supposed to go to Japan from March to August on an exchange program hosted by my university. I spent over $300 on a deposit for the aboard program. I have spent the entire year filing paperwork after paperwork to be able to go on this program. I worked my butt off every summer the last 3 years setting aside money to afford this exchange. I legit just got accepted by the university 2 weeks ago. They give my hope by saying that they wanted everyone to still come but we just have to leave 2 weeks early to quarantine. But today my university just sent an email saying it's canceled . After they got my hopes up these last couple of months
Also, I don’t think they are gonna give that money back knowing university and their greed for money especially now with covid.
I really want to do an exchange program before I graduate.
Do you think Covid will clear up by fall?

Real Traveler's™ Map
trv map
Map update 4.0.1

Just making a new thread for this rather minor update of the Real Traveler's™ Map. It's mostly just cosmetic changes, as well as reversing the previous update of Slovenia. Pic related is the updated template, I'll also post a simple .png file you can copy and paste over your old map in MS Paint so you don't have to fill in the entire map again.

Changelog:
>Reverted Slovenia back to traditional regions
>Removed the Hala'ib triangle and Bir Tawil, as the former is under de facto Egyptian control and the latter under de facto Sudanese control, and neither are actual subdivisions
>removed the black dots from Lake Titicaca
>fixed literally a single pixel in Algeria
>fixed literally a single pixel in Artsakh
(This does not affect the pre-war Artsakh map, for those who use that)
>fixed the borders of the counties of Ireland, most notably counties Louth and Monaghan
>connected Isles of Scilly and Lundy to the South West Region of England

In other news, Egypt is apparently in the process of relocating its capital from Cairo to a yet to be named planned city, temporarily called the New Administrative Capital. This hasn't affected the governorates as far as I can tell.

After lots of travelling and visiting places that used to be nothing but a mere concept I developed in my childhood, I can conlude that it is not the destination that I like so much about going on vacation. It's the travelling that fulfills me no matter where it is. Visiting the places that I thought where the epitome of beauty didn't fulfill me. When I was there I was bored by it, I wasn't amazed, it left me cold. It felt like those places only seemed so breathtaking in pictures but quickly became bland when actually visiting those places.

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.

I recommend the "Official Japan Travel App". It's free and does a good job of planning routes using public transportation.

moving overseas
rajan
i am contemplating moving out of Australia for good. Life is comfy and I dearly love my gf, but the spirit of adventure beckons and this country is red tape asf.

I am young, have made lots of money through business (& want to incorporate in different country with lower taxes) and like to think I am disciplined and keep good routines. With such and uprooting of life, how do you do it?

I already have such great friends here, an amazing family and stable life, but I really want to go overseas and just full send it. How do you guys maintain discipline? How do you find good gyms, rebuild a good social circle and not get homesick? It seems so fun and enriching yet terrifying at the same time.

Philippines GENERAL: Open the fuck up already edition
maxresdefault
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?

The Ultimate US Road trip vlogs
1590347932505
Hey /trv/, Britbong here. Back in 2019 I rented a van in California and proceeded to travel across the United States for over 5 months with the goal of seeing as much of the country as possible. Pic related is my route. A few oldfags might even remember me posting on here asking for suggestions back around 2017 - 2018.
Anyway, I just wanted to let you all know, I recorded the whole trip in 4K and I'm finally getting around to documenting my travels on Youtube. Check out my videos If you'd like to follow me on my journey. I would appreciate any feedback too and if you enjoy the content I've made so far then subscribe for more. I have 3 videos already and I'm working hard on a fourth. Feel free to ask me any questions about my trip in this thread too. Thanks to anyone from a few years back who helped me plan this.

Where to travel for those who have traveled everywhere?
1601519852407
I've been to 40 countries.

>3-12 parents take me to Europe and parts of East Asia, as well as Caribbean vacation spots
>11-18 go on educational summer camps abroad in Europe every year, one summer in Japan
>18-22 study abroad in the UK for one semester, travel Europe again through the Summer
>22-30 Travel Africa, South America, East asia again, SE asia, Russia, Mongola, UAE, etc.

By the way I'm a semi-trust fund kid who also made a shit load in the stock market (from a small gift of 200k from parents when I graduated college)

What is there to do now? Honestly, I feel like the entire Earth is boring to me now, which on one hand is good because it allows me to focus on my work and find more depth in life... but on the other hand, I miss the adventures I had traveling, and the "newness" of it all.

It's impossible to "do it all" but I've done most of all of it. Eaten at the best restaurants in the world, banged expensive hookers in Germany and cheap ass SE hookers, lived in huts in Mongolia and backpacked with nothing through south America. Have experienced about as much as the gamut as I think one can.

Suggestions on what else there is to do? Supposedly there is an island somewhere in Polynesia where you can eat people.. not saying I would do that, but looking for suggestions of things that people haven't ehard of.

Luxury Travel Thread

So many travel threads are about poors staying at hostels or whatever shit rebbit neckbeards do on r/travel. Talk to me about some of your favorite high end stays you've had.

My personal favorite:

St. Regis, Florence, Italy. In the heart of Florence, easy walk to most attractions, surrounded by good food, on the river and beautiful views.

The best part of staying at St. Regis is the butler service. Unpacked for me, and brought me cappuccino + pastries every single morning, with turndown service in the evening. Then when it was time to go, they packed my luggage for me entirely

Redpill me on Taiwan

I'm considering moving to Taipei once the covid situation clears up and am thinking about living there for a minimum of 6 months working remotely and extending it if I dig the place.

I have a couple of questions:

How much will it cost per month to live comfortably? Honestly, my standards aren't too high but having a nice room/studio would be nice. I'm looking to minimize the amount of time I need to work and maximize the time interacting with the culture.

How costly are the visa runs and how easily are they made?

I'm a decent looking white-skinned male. How true are the stories told about the Taiwanese women? What should I expect?

Finally, some overal tips/remarks regarding Taiwan/Taipei are more than welcome.

Arkansas
arkansas_map
What happens here? I just graduated college and this state is a potential contender. I've passed through here a few times on my way to Branson and all I really know is that it has a lot of forests, farms, some mining, and civil war history. I want somewhere not too high on the radar that won't cuck too much on guns or taxes and has a reasonable cost of living with some things to keep me busy within nature. Some amenities within a reasonably sized town wouldn't be bad either, I was going to look into either Little Rock or up near the Fayetteville- Springdale area. I'm from the south so I know what to expect culture-wise and from the climate. Any suggestions would be appreciated as well, thanks.

I've never been to Malta, Mallorca, Crete or Cyprus, and I'm mainly interested in Malta because there's a lot of IT companies there and I'm currently in talks with some.

Overrated travel destinations
MAP-FULL-illustrated-map-of-australia-611315
What are the most Overrated Travel destinations /trv/?
Australia honestly has to be one of the most boring ass places on earth.
The environment isn't particularly interesting, pretty much looks identical to California, super sterile, ultra expensive cities, nofunallowed nanny state so there isn't even particularly much interesting to do, cities practically have no nightlife or street culture.
The only thing I would rate Australia on is amazing food quality, even the McDonalds there is honestly better than In N Out or Five Guys.

Sicily, Tunisia, Turkey, Lebanon, Iran
Mediterranean-countries-1-source-OME
When the coof has eased I plan on spending approx a month in various Mediterranean and Middle Eastern places. Got a few questions:

How much time did you feel to be satisfying for each of these places? I've been to western Sicily before but the east and the other countries would be new to me.

Now seems like a dicey time for Lebanon, but it's been high on my list for a while. Has anyone been recently? Is there notably more misery and insecurity there due to the economic crisis and explosion?

Iran. THE country in the Middle East I'd like to visit but I'd sadly lose my Visa waiver for the US. Is there a way to go and still keep the waiver? Say, by using a second passport and flying or going overland from Turkey? I think ultimately it's worth losing the waiver so long as it's easy to get a tourist Visa. I do like the US and would want to visit more places there.

Need some travel advice

Since my school is online next semester and this is my first year at the school, I have the opportunity to live/travel anywhere for the duration of the spring. I've never traveled much but my main impetus is leaving the restrictive living conditions that I've been in since coronavirus started, and additionally the fact that it would feel like a missed opportunity to just sit in my house for the next 4 months.
Also, I don't really know much about what one does in a new city, so any advice on that matter would be appreciated as well.

Hi guys. I'm 21, female, born in the US but have dual citizenship in Lebanon through my parents. I have an interest in traveling everywhere. If I wanted to travel to Israel one day in the future, would it be safe for me? Are Israeli's particularly racist towards Arab travellers? Would I even be let in the country due to having citizenship in Lebanon? I'm not planning a trip there currently. Just incredibly curious.

Puerto Rico

For reasons that I won't go into at present, I need to persuade my wife that our family should move to Puerto Rico within the next 5 years or so. However, like all women, she's immune to all forms of logic and reasoning, so I have to beguile her by taking her on a romantic, fun trip so that she is naturally enticed to relocate. Thus, I am looking for places in Puerto Rico with great natural beauty that are FUN. Think gorgeous beaches and lush vegetation while not being too far removed from the culture and fun atmosphere of a city or town. Hiking to waterfalls and upscale dining all the in the same day. Possible?

I'm about to travel with my 3 cats from America to Europe using Lufthansa. They'll travel in the cargo hold as checked baggage, and I'm having trouble getting a kennel of the right size.

My cats are roughly 50cm long, 20cm wide, and 40cm tall when standing erect. Looking at e.g. Petmate kennels, I see that their 21'' Vari Kennel is too small, while the 28'' is way too large (just tried putting my cat in a 28'' and he occupied maybe a third of the entire kennel size while curled up in a corner). The ideal kennel size for me would be around 55x40x45, but I'm not aware of any good brands that carry those sizes.

Has anyone ever traveled with cats like this? Which kennel brand/sizes did you use?

Wasted 3 years of my life in China -- What do?
KFHLandlord
-I taught in China for 3 years, got married there a few months ago, and just dipped out 4 days ago back home to west coast USA. Going to have my marriage dissolved because post marriage my wife has been a controlling psycho --not even gonna go into the details--. Just lucky I didn't have kids with her and that she doesn't have a green-card yet, so most likely I can dump her with no consequences and cancel out her petition with the USCIS.
-Anyway, it's really weird in the US now. Everyone seems on edge. Is it even possible to pump and dump skanks on Tinder now with everyone so paranoid about Covid?
-Is there anywhere I can travel to to have a good time, either domestically or abroad? How are things in Florida?
--Also, I'm not worried about Covid. I think the whole thing is overblown, and I most likely had the coof way back in February-March when I was travelling around in Thailland -- had a persistent cough for 3 months that started with a mild fever.

Traveling to Mexico in COVID Times
1609357950736
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?

What’s the most soulless city in the world?
91EBA89E-3875-438F-900E-596E60109117
In my opinion, it’s St. Louis. It’s in the US, which automatically puts it in “most soulless” contention, and it also has a murder rate in the top 10 highest in the world despite being in the first world. Hard to argue that the title can go to any other city.

Colombia_GettyImages-150953681
Hey. I'm in the U.S., and I plan to visit Colombia with my girlfriend who lives in Venezuela, most likely in late May. I've never traveled outside of the U.S. before, and I also haven't traveled at all during COVID.

Any general advice is very welcome. Some specific questions I have are
1. How/where should I go about exchanging money? How much money should I have withdrawn at a given time?
2. What is the best way to travel long distances there other than renting a vehicle. Busses maybe?
3. What is the deal with COVID tests and flying? Do I have to get tested in order to fly out of, and again before flying back into, the U.S.?
4. What types of COVID restrictions are there in Colombia?
5. Am I allowed to carry a pocket knife while there?
6. Anything I should pack besides clothes, toothbrush, documents/ID, and money? Probably just going to bring an overstuffed backpack, as we anticipate moving a lot to different places.

Any other advice, or reasons why my plan or relationship are retarded, also totally welcome. Thanks in advance.

Working remotely via a digital nomad visa
Screenshot_20180730-232309
Is there anyone here who has some experience with working remotely from abroad via a so-called "digital nomad" visa? I recently found out about this, and working from home for all these months has left me wondering if this would be a good way to visit another country for a longer period of time without having to quit my job or having to go unpaid leave.

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.

Vagrant travel worth it?

Is Vagrant/Vagabond travelling really worth it? Hostels are generally cheap as fuck and the good thing about Hostels is it's easy to find travel compatriots there and get laid.
I did camping/vagrant in London and just found myself bored and alone for a week, so I went to a hostel and got laid and a qt3.14 travel comrade in my first night there.

Where can one escape Covid-19 restrictions currently?
freedomconcept-1200x675
Hey to you all, I'm currently living in Helsinki Finland, and the restrictions are nowhere near as bad here as they are in many other European countries. Private gyms and restaurants are open, and bars can serve alcohol until 22:00/10pm. Universities are closed though...

Despite the situation not being the worst here I'm still extremely sick and tired of this situation. I'd like to be able to go out to bars and nightclubs at least somewhat normally, play team sports and so on. Also the winters being quite harsh here restricts what you can do outdoors. Since I'm a student I mostly spend my time in my apartment studying, and I can't take this anymore.

What are the countries that currently fit this description? Where can I find freedom? I'm studying and pretty much everything is done via Zoom, so I could be anywhere atm. I'd like to stay in Europe or somewhere nearby if that's possible, but I'm also open for some other suggestions. It is surprisingly difficult to find information on this.

Any kind of tips and help will be highly appreciated! Thanks!

Move to either Japan or Vietnam for 6 months?
1584716129584
I want to live 6 months in either Vietnam or Japan. Will try learning the language 4 months before then build upon it once I live there. What would be the best pick between those 2 factoring in:

Cost of living(rent, food, transportation like renting a motorbike)
socialising with natives(both male and female)
Language learning curve and general usefulnes of it.
I'm freelancing at the moment and will have an income of around 400€ once I get there, which will slowly increase, and of course what's in my bank account should something unexpectant happen.
I want to live in a big city, but I'm fine with one room and not center location. As long as I have a small kitchen and place for a laptop, I'm fine, altough quality of living is still a factor I would need to consider.

Don't know if it matters but I'm 21 years old.

Testing on arrival destinations?
NA-BP450_DRUGCH_G_20120216165706
It will be a lot easier and cheaper for me to travel to countries with testing on arrival because the flu hysteria is never going away. I mean a system like Egypt where apparently you get tested there for like 30$ then they give you your result in 48 hours max and you can stop quaranteening if it's negative.

Does anyone have a list of all the countries that do testing on arrival or is Egypt the only one?
