>so like, uhhhhhh, I'm in fucking Thailand before London and, why not, fucking party!!! And also marijuana and fucking party, so, to have good time, lets go, fucking, you my friend! Why not, party and have good time, you know, fucking very cool, why not chill out?
Can someone explain travel and tourist scams to me?
I get a lot of them like pickpockets and whatnot, but the ones where they try to get you to buy something or demand payment for a service. What's stopping me from saying "no, fuck you"? Are they gonna fight and rob me on the street? Cry to the police? I don't understand why I'd pay someone for shoving flowers in my hands instead of trying to hand them back or failing that, dropping them and walking away?
Hi. I'm Dutch myself, so I this might be a weird question. But I have some friends from abroad coming over and I want your opinions on places (preferably cities) to take them that aren't Amsterdam. I can thing of a few, but I want to hear a it from non-Dutch tourist's perspective. Where did you go and what did or didn't you like.
I have a car, so everything is in driving distance.
>>1081394 I guess it's sort of a tourist trap, but I found Giethoorn pretty wonderful. I also had a good time doing some medium long-distance bike trips along the coast, and I'm not even a serious cyclist (my wife is, which is why we did it... helps that your country has no discernible hills).
>>1081394 Of the cities I visited in the Netherlands, I liked Den Haag the best. In general the area felt a lot less hectic than other areas like Rotterdam or Amsterdam and the atmosphere in general was more welcoming.
Den Haag has the Mauritshuis and the Escher museum which I particularly enjoyed, and also to the north past Vredespaleis is Scheveningen where you can check out the beaches of the North Sea among other things.
What's the most ambitious undertaking anyone on /trv/ has ever done? Are there any real adventurers here? Of the top of my head I can think of that anon who biked from Egypt to Ethiopia or somewhere, and then there's Africabro. Any other poster boys for NG in our ranks?
I feel like anyone who is willing to exit their comfort zone and travel for more than a month is worthy to be called an adventurer. Because once you get back home, you'll find so few that are like you if any.
I think Arab cultures are really cool and I got invited to Qatar by this guy I know who lives there. He said he'd pay for everything (I'll chip in too). I think he's in the military because he occasionally posts pictures in soldiers garb on social media. It's not something I ask too much about. I trust him and he's very nice. He also has exotic pets too, which is cool. And he wears the white thawb a lot. I guess there's lots of attraction going on, haha.
I just want to know if I should do it or not. I'm Czech, but I live in the England.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Qatar is safe for a woman so long as you dress modestly. You don't have to wear the abaya, but you have to dress modestly. No short skirts, etc. It's a peaceful, stable country with a large expat population and Islamic law is strict. Guys aren't going to try shit with you.
As to the guy you've met, clearly he wants and expects sex from you, so as long as you understand that, and you're willing to accept the risks of meeting a stranger--that's on you. Any potential danger will come from this individual, not from Qatar at large.
>>1079865 I am male and stayed in Qatar for 2 months. You'll be far safer from petty crime than in England or the Czech Republic, and Qatar doesn't really have any cultural problems with solo female travelers. You WILL have to watch what you wear though, no shoulders, cleavage, legs can be shown.
If there's >a lot of attraction going on hooking up with a Qatari will not get you stoned, but play it safe and act completely platonic in public unless otherwise cued

anyone know how to get a japanese pen pal? I'd love to visit tokyo someday but not without a local who could show me around a bit. I'd be willing to do the same if they want to visit my town (in Texas).

>>1081560 Literally anywhere. Just hop into any thread on this board. A lot of people travel by them selves. There are both pro's and cons of traveling solo. But I find it overall easier compared to when I traveled with friends. Anywhere that you can travel with a group you can do solo and vise versa.
>>1081560 >What are some good places to travel alone? Anywhere, like another said...cept cruises, they're a bit lonely alone. Anywhere with museums that you wish to do, cause you can indulge yourself at each painting or artifact as short or as long as you wish. Read allllll the signs, or not! Economically speaking, renting a car and your hotel isn't splitable alone, so cities with good public transport evens it out a bit. DC is awesome alone, and it's got this transient town thing going on where everyone is temporarily on business, on assignment, on vacation, and food/nightlife is awesome.
>>1078878 In this type of post you typically have to provide some specifics or your interests and hobbies. I like hiking and cycling. I wouldnt suggest places to go mountain biking to somebody visiting my area unless he suggested that he was into that.
A city like New York has the standard tourist sights that can be suggested to you on any travel website. If you asked something like.. "Which restaurant is the best for...?" "Is it worth it to visit...?" or "Which neighborhood should I stay in?"... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
