I have time off of work in the middle of Feb to the beginning of March and I would like to use this time to visit somewhere in Australia. Departing from Sydney with about a $1000AUD budget. I have been to the usual (Gold Coast, Melb, etc) so I would like to go somewhere different and remote.
Hey everyone. For the longest time possible, I've been wanting to leave this shithole of a country (United States) and move to Saudi Arabia. I am a young Muslim with socialist and traditional values and I need some advice to live in Saudi Arabia. Any thoughts?
Pick just about any other Muslim country but Saudi Arabia. If you insist on Saudi Arabia then move to Dammam. It's close to the border with Bahrain, so when you realized how bad you fucked up you can drive across the causeway for some respite
If you had £600 to spend (that's $855.19 or €785.24) and ~3 weeks free time, what travel plans in Europe would you make?
Plans can be as brief or detailed as you like. I've been stuck in my uni town all year and I feel like I'm stagnating, but I'm not yet inspired by any of the tentative travel ideas I've come up with. I won't say anything about my interests or where I've been before, because I'd like to hear a wide variety of suggestions for how different people would choose to spend that budget.
Hey /trv/ in 3 days I'll be going to Europe for a month, specifically sweden, London and spain. I current have a Samsung s 6 with verizon here in the states, would I be able to use this phone in Europe, a international sim card or will I need to rent a phone?
What is trv opinion regarding Uber? Is uber legal in your country? Would you recommend a foreign tourist to use it in your country? How cheap is it compared to local taxis? Do drivers provide a good service? Do you support taxi drivers claims?
In Spain uber is not legal. As far as I know, we were one if the first countries to ban it, due to the powerful taxi lobby
However i live in China, where uber is legal and works really fine. There is huge competition between uber and chinese version of uber 滴滴打車 so prices... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
First time poster in this board. I'm going to be spending 4 days in Granada during holy week. Aside from the Alhambra and the religious processions, what are some interesting things to do? What are the best places for drinks and tapas?
>>1075009 Congrats anon, Granada is one of the most beautiful cities in spain if not europe. Only problem is that it is a little bit too small and 4 days will be plenty to visit, though that might be good being holy week and you will be able to visit without rush. More or less all the places are amazing for tapas but a rule of thumb is to get where it's the most crowded. You will rarely fail if you do like that.
The city itself is pretty chill but places that are a bit more "scenic" are Albaicin, Sacromonte,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
mobay and ocho rios are godawful cruise port tourist traps where you'll spend the entire time being harassed to buy garbage trinkets and get called a racist if you don't to try to guilt you into it. negril was chill with beautiful beach and diving when i was there a few years ago, but i hear it's moving in the direction of the northern ports. south coast doesn't have shit for beaches, but it's nice to visit because people don't rely on tourists there so you don't get harassed. drivers are fucking maniacs, but if you're in a rural area...

I just got back from Jamaica, it is beautiful but you need to be careful. Outside of resorts it is very very ghetto. I would not personally drive around the island myself. It is not uncommon to see thugs with machetes.
Most places take USD, we did not have to exchange our money.
I am considering emigrating to Israel as soon as I get my bachelor degree, so I have a few questions to ask. Firstly, how do people treat repatriants there? THere are lots of emigrants from all over the world so I wonder if it is hard to find yourself in the society. Secondly, will it be easy for me to find a job with a degree in economics? Also, I'd be glad to hear more about the country from those who live or have been there so that I could assess what awaits me in the immediate future.
>>1074480 Whats your plan there op? Rent a car and drive around? Use the ferry? take flights? use the long distance buses? Any plans for the 3 weeks beside BsAs and probably MVD like going to Iguazu or Bariloche? 3 weeks are pretty long for 1 and a half city.
>>1074480 i would recomen walking 8 hours a day with 2 hours of pause, sit down and rest in a bar; the drinks are cheap; also dont go out with a huge bypack , you look ridicoulos adn very easy to rob. avoid the donw and souther districts; too much crime. walk around every where,the same block or just a srting of blocks. all the houses and buildings in buenos aires are differetn from one another in architectural style
I lived in Medoza (near the Chilean border) for 6 months and I had the chance to make a 1 week trip in BB.AA. As said above, 3 weeks are quite long for a city, even for a big one as Buenos Aires so you'd better consider going to other places during your stay. I'd be you I'll stay few days after my arrival in Buenos Aires and then head up to Iguazu because it is something worth to see according to every people I met who's been there (I did not). I heard Bariloche is a nice place for siteseeing but it's apart from Argentinia in the way that there are a lot of tourists and rich people over there. Personally, I'd rather go to Patagonia or visit cities such as Salta and Cordoba before going to Bariloche. If you're rich eough you could do a trip BB.AA-Cordoba-Salta-Mendoza-Bariloche-BB.AA. You might even have time for one more stop-over in Chile for example, or in the south of Argentina.
Argentinians mainly use long distance buses since they don't have trains over there. Buses are cheap and confortable, the only "problem" is the lengh of the trip but as you're there for 3 weeks that should be okay. If I remember well it took me 12 hours to travel to BB.AA and 12 hours to come back to Mendoza.
I totally agree with >>1075250 regarding the precautions for not being targeted as a tourist. I remember going to the Bombonera in the district of La Boca...if you walk few streets away from the most frequented area you quickly enter "dangerous" places where the atmosphere is a bit gloomy: There, you can be easily spotted. That is the reason why people offered them to guide me to the bus stop on my way back because it was getting dark. North of the city tends to be safer, plus it is nice: there are places and local markets. Don't miss Argentinian meats and ice creams, taste their wine as well!!! Would definitelly go there again!
Going out there to decide if im going to move there, or wichita KS.
Anyone visited or lived in the city or area?
Want to get the best impression i can from the city while i visit, what are things to do? And i would like to try to meet new people to hang out and smoke with... im guessing at the bar? Are people open to outsiders there?
And is it really as bad as everyone makes it seem?
Should i be afraid to walk around at night by my self?
never been to wichita but i have been to chi abot 5 times. Chicago has an awesome down town you can spend days within the loop area, miracle mile, river front/navy peir (u will prob freeze) All types of stuff to do in downtonw area.
I like to visit the neighborhoods try taking the public transit to wicker park its an awesome neighborhood cool bars and stuff to do all day, prob a good chance of finding people to smoke with or a hook up. Check out the Revolution Brewery they also have a tap house/resturant but i liked all rev brewery beers.
>>1073686 How was the BVI for you? I'm going to be renting a boat with 8 other people and I was planning to enjoy the full moon ritual and was wondering if you know any of the good spots to do it. RIght now I'm in florida preparing.
So my friends and I were thinking of having a road trip through Europe (we live in the Uk) and thought about driving from England to Istanbul and back. However, one of our party is Sikh and we were wondering if he'd face any significant discrimination in the Balkans (greater than what he gets in the UK anyway).
Would it be significant or do people not give that much of a shit?
>>1073482 Anyone that wears headwear is going to be confusing as WTF are they. This is a known problem with Sikh's everywhere they go. I would think they are most understood and accepted in the UK, for the locals education and understanding far outweighs the rest of europe.
Leave him at home, or get him to clean up his appearance in order to enjoy the once in a lifetime trip. Understandably, he may have religious reasons not to do that, and so you'll deal with the trouble if it arises. What else could you do?... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
