Hey voyagers,
/trv/ is a slow board, so don't expect immediate responses. CHECK THE CATALOG – you might find threads already discussing topics you're interested in.

Before asking for suggestions, tell /trv/ about your:
>Level of understanding of the local language(s)
This makes it easier to give quality advice. Of course, keep your posts travel related.

For all other matters:
General culture questions >>>/int/
Politics discussion >>>/pol/
Transportation discussion >>>/n/
Outdoors-related discussion >>>/out/

Americans, do you enjoy tipping?

Tipping is a peculiar cultural norm where you subsidize the bottom 20% of society.

Imagine a middle-aged man carrying around water and food. They throw a tantrum if you don't give them a few dollars. They might even spit in your food.

It breeds entitlement among the lower class, where they expect a tip for every action. A bartender (fucking middle aged mongrol), for instance, might expect a $1 tip for simply opening a beer.

Starbucks now expect you to tip when you pay with credit card / debt card.

Previous Thread: >>2538292

>What is this thread?
/rcg/ was created as a way for the roller coaster enthusiasts on here to discuss all things roller coasters and theme parks. While roller coasters are the main focus of these threads (and the title of the general) there is also discussion on other theme park rides, as well as the parks themselves and trip planning too.
>Can I talk about Disney/Universal parks in this thread?
Absolutely! Disney discussion of all sorts including resorts/dining/trip planning is OK.

Travel Consoooomerism
What's are some uncommon items you like to bring with you when traveling?

I only travel with a 25L backpack so I bring one of those Heroclip Carabineers. You can get knockoffs on AliExpress for about $5. They let you hang your backpack anywhere, on a bathroom stall door, on a table, on a chair, etc.

I also like to bring a spork, a pair of chopsticks, a silk pillowcase (comfy) which doubles as a laundry bag, a travel belt with a plastic buckle for going through metal detectors and to hide money if you have to bribe a cop or get robbed (an actual
belt, bit one of those gay slings/fannypacks), a USB flash drive (dual type A and type C to transfer files from my phone) with important documents so you can easily get things printed, a stain remover pen, and I keep a laundry dryer sheet in my bag to keep things fresh (last a few weeks).

Heading to Peru at the end of October and first few days of September. Only have 7 days to play with, including flight time (so 5 days of being on the ground).

I'd like to spend 3 days in Lima, half a day in Macchu Picchi, full day in Huacacchina and Paracas, and whatever is left I'd simply like to explore the coast.

I'm going during day of the dead and have no idea if anything will be closed down. I'd really like to meet people while I'm here and make lasting memories and friendships.

Is this realistic given the distance between Lima, Machu Picchu, and Huacacchina? Should I save Machu Picchu for another time?

Are there tours or places you'd recommend? What should I know before going? What kind of nightlife can I find that doesn't revolve around getting drunk and going to clubs?

Japan judicial system/prison general

As lot of gaijin end up in the japanese draconian judicial system, this theard it to tell your story with it.

Japanese law allows for the detention of suspects for up to 23 days before indictment. Detainees are not allowed to request bail for the period and are subjected to interrogation throughout without lawer
In Japan, criminal suspects face severe abuses in pretrial detention. Authorities routinely strip them of their right to remain silent, interrogate them without a lawyer, coerce them to confess to crimes through repeated arrests, and deny them bail – resulting in detention for prolonged periods under constant surveillance in police stations. More than 99 percent of trials result in convictions.

One/two days in Shenzhen
I'll be going on a business trip to Shenzhen in a few days, and will probably have a day or two there on my own. I don't really expect the partners on Chinese side to be all that welcoming outside of working hours, but that's fine by me. I realize that it's essentially a city-sized factory, but there seems to be a few options to spend a Sunday walking around.
Anyone can recommend something on a tight budget, but still worthwhile? For now I'm thinking about hiking up Wutong Mountain. I do speak decent Mandarin and have been on prolonged trips to China before (although mostly in the North), so language barrier is not that big of an issue.

- anything I need to know about wandering at night time?

and the adult questions:
- do I need to order strippers drinks for a private dance? Or does only the bachelor get a private dance
- can I touch and squeeze their tits and ass?
- if I go to a brothel and I cum before time is over, do I need to leave or can I fool around and let her suck my balls until the time is over?

Why I don't believe we will go to a strip club or a brothel I would still ask for myself if I one day go there alone

Tourist’s can’t dress for shit
I know this is a gay subject, but why the fuck can’t tourists (mostly men, mostly fellow whites, 30s) actually dress normally with some sense of style? You look like a faggot wearing those tight graphic t-shirts and beige cargo shorts and old ass baseball caps and Levi jeans. Those Hawaiian shirts and polos and olive satchel bags and zip-up hoodies. Put a couple of decent modern looking outfits together for Christ’s sake. If you’re overweight don’t wear a close-fitting shirt. Get a haircut. Groom yourself a little. People in these countries you go to will view you as a fucking disgusting faggot foreigner if you can’t even present yourself with some flair. It doesn’t even cost much to look good. Go to H&M or Uniqlo who sell cheap, good looking versions of designer clothes and model your fits after what the current styles are. Take those gay looking glasses off. Girls will feel you more if you look cooler. Every time I see a group of black tourists they’re always dressed cool with good style, why can’t you all do the same?

Tokyo (3-7 days)

Akihabara - District for electronic and otaku goods. Find Ibaraki-Douji figurine.
Nihonbashi - Commercial district, boring. Take pictures.
Marunouchi - In front of train station, take pictures of both, leave.
Imperial Palace - Boring inside, take photos outside, leave.
Tokyo State Guest House - Cool mansion with massive samurai statue(?). 3 dollars to visit garden.

Asakusa: Visit Temple and explore the traditional streets of Nakamise.
Tokyo Skytree - Huge tower with observation deck, 21 dollars.
Sensoji Temple - Another cool temple
Edo Tokyo museum - Closed, but take photos.
Yanaka Cemetery - Buddha statue and a temple, supposedly.

Meiji Shrine - A peaceful Shinto shrine.
Harajuku - Cosplay culture but unlikely during Winter.
Metropolitan Government Building - Twin tower with two free observation decks.
Nakano Broadway - Shopping mall with lots of anime related stores
Yebisu Garden Place - Boring, but good picture potential.

Institute for Nature Study - Quiet nature reserve in the middle of Tokyo. 3 dollars.
Tokyo Tower - Tourist trap, avoid getting too close, look for vantage spots to take picture of.
Zojoji temple - cool temple right next to tokyo tower, perfect picture spot.

Rest (both far from city, will pay about 40 dollars in bus so unlikely to go):
Mount Mitake - Wooded mountain with shrine
Todoroki Valley - Short wooded valley with temple
Visit Mt. Fuji on way to Kyoto, but do not climb it (obviously)

Asia Trip
I'm planning around a 2 month trip to Asia next year, likely around March 20th to May 20th, but I'm flexible. It'll be my second time going to Japan and first anywhere else in Asia. I have a folding bicycle that I plan to bring with me. It's allowed on mass transit if it's covered. All my stuff will be in a backpack. How would you spend around 2 months?

I plan to fly first to Tokyo from the US and take the Shinkansen to Nagoya, spend a day at Nagashima Spa Land because I like rollercoasters, then continue to Fukuoka. Then I want to work my way north to follow the cherry blossom blooms back to Tokyo. Hiroshima, Matsuyama, Himeji, Kobe, Osaka, Kyoto, Lake Biwa, Nagoya, Nagashima Spa Land again, maybe Yokohama, then back to Tokyo. I'd probably spend 3 weeks in Japan, with only 2 days of it in Tokyo (the day I land and fly to my next stop).

Then fly to Taiwan and spend a week or so there. I haven't done any research into Taiwan. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Then fly to Ho Chi Mihn City, Vietnam and spend about 2 weeks working my way to the north of the country.

After that fly back to Tokyo and spend a week there. Then fly back to the United States.

What do you think about my crude plan? I'd like to extend it another 2-3 weeks or so and visit Malaysia, The Phillipines, or Indonesia after Vietnam, but I might be biting off too much.

I'm planning for an average budget of $100 a day not including flights which I think should be plenty.

Working fish processing in Alaska
First time posting in /trv/ so I'm not completely sure if this is the right place to ask this, but has anyone here gone to Alaska to work during the summer work season? What was it like? I'm hoping to get a job at one of the fish processing factories there. I hear that the pay is ridiculously good and some companies even give you free housing on site and free three meals a day, so it seems like a great way to save up a lot of cash. Anyone able to offer their experiences and advice, even if its just about life in Alaska in general?

Tashkent/Uzbekistan/Central Asia General
I've got a long layover in Tashkent, so I'm going to try to see some stuff after I've gotten a couple of hours of quality sleep. Is there anything that's a must-see there? Anything I should avoid? I'm generally in for any type of sightseeing, food, or museums.

This is my first time in a former Soviet state outside of Russia, and first time in Central Asia generally, so I'm actually kind of excited.

Russia General /rg/
Why does nobody here talk about Russia? I've just decided I kind of want to do a short visit there and was wondering what to expect, where to stay, what to do, see, etc. Just the basics, really.

I was also considering going during the colder months for whatever reason. Any thoughts?

I heard that Russia is still under sanctions. Will my credit card work there? Is Russia at war, and is it safe from NATO missiles? If I go backpacking, will the KGB arrest me as a hostage, so that NATO must pay a certain amount of money, like a prisoner exchange

Interrail trip
I would love to do an Interrail with this specific configuration. What really matters to me is passing through these specific cities like Montpelier in the south of France (or any other city in the Cote d' Azur), Geneve , Zurich , Munich , Prague , Berlin and the cherry on top, Copenhague

It is possible ? I'll be travelling (if the trip is viable) with a friend for a Techno club-to-club experience.

Travelled to France and Italy. Here are my thoughts on the places I visited.
>Excellent public transport system.
Loved the architecture of some of the buildings and statues. There is so much to do and visit. People speak French REALLY fast. Locals were either very helpful or standoffish. Gypsies were annoying as fuck with their fake petitions and panhandling.
People speak French much slower and are usually nice, no pun intended. I guess if I lived in the French Riviera, I would be more pleasant. Beaches were gorgeous. Food is delicious, maybe because its near Italy. Has vibe of a third world Latino country run by an efficient dictator.
Lots of nouveau rich douchebags partying here. But its located in the French Riviera, so I understand why this is such a popular party destination. Place looks like a James Bond movie location.
Didn't like it. Other than the Duomo cathedral, nothing else really to see. Why were there so many LGBT flags, even more than my liberal college campus? I thought Italy was land of traditional Catholicism and Mussolini fascism. Milan does have a great public transport system.
Vatican, Coliseum, and Pantheon were amazing places to visit, probably because I love history. I wish I could stayed longer to explore the city.
Water buses, canals, and the bridges were cool. Some parts looked dirty and run down. Kind of reminds me of a backwater village in India.

Overall, the closer to Italy, the more helpful the locals were. So much graffiti in both countries. Was it a govt artistic decision or crime issue?

Only positivity here

I went to Prague this past May and the museum has a huge room featuring rocks which were very cool, and there was a dark room to display fluorescent rocks. You go behind a curtain to enter the room which was quite small. But because it had to be dark people kept bumping into each other and it was funny af so you just hear laughing and get bumped in a small room with glowing rocks.

Things to do between Chicago and Seattle
My family and I are moving soon and wanna do some cool stuff on the way. Any anons that live in, or have travelled, the area, would love some suggestions for stuff to do. We've seen some of Yellowstone, but will likely detour to see more of it. We've seen Rushmore and Crazy Horse.

Any recommendations greatly appreciated. National parks, landmarks, monuments, museums, etc.

Picrel is the general route, though like I said, detours are certainly on the table.

Baby's first non-Western solo trip
Looking to get away from the West for a week or two around November, but I've only ever travelled around Europe and the US before. Where's a good place to start? For context I'm an average white British guy in my early 30s, social skills can range from good to shit depending on how relaxed I am.

Things I'm looking for:
>Not to get murdered or caught in a monsoon
>No insane visa process
>Somewhere I can walk around a bit during the day and see stuff (so not 40c or a resort in the middle of nowhere)
>No covid bullshit
>Decent cooming opportunities whether free or paid

Thanks frens
