I only spent a night in Venice with some guy off the street (n-no homo - me and my friend had been planning to squat, but he let us crash on his couch in exchange for a cigarette) so I don't have any crazy insider tips. However, I'd definitely recommend doing some sightseeing fairly late at night. The city is very charming after sunset, and if you go sufficiently past most folks' bedtimes, you can see landmarks like the Piazza San Marco practically empty.
That might not seem like much, but it's an utter shitshow during the day, especially in summer.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
For Prague and Brugge, there's a few companies that do walking tours, they're usually slickly planned out and are useful for getting an oversight of a city and for getting some sense of direction when you walk around later. Brugge tour came out from Brussels, which is probably more worth your time as a beer fan than Brugge.
Went round Venice with an Italian, so my experience was probably different to others. All I can say is that it's a bitch to navigate and a lot of the buildings are in very shoddy repair. I saw an old woman pouring dishwater not down... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
In Seoul for the next week. What do people recommend doing? weather isn't great right now (bit rainy) but i'm sure there's plenty of stuff to do.I'm only 18 so clubs are probably a no go, but bars may be a possibility? not sure. Also plan on going to the DMZ in the next few days.
Don't go to Myengdong. It's all Chinese people now.
Hongdae or garosugil for the urban feel. Around Gangnam subway station for the crowded feel.
Go to palaces in downtown if you are a history buff, but otherwise it gets really boring really quick. Go to Insadong or Bukchon for the "Asian feel".
What do you mean you are "going to the DMZ". Do you mean the Joint Security Area? Not sure if it's worth your time. Unique experience, but not that... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Most state-run museums, including the war memorial museum and the national history museum, are free, so they're worth checking out.
Also, if there's a clear day, go hiking on mount namsan. Right by myeongdong, it's beautifully preserved and has the best views in the city. N Seoul Tower is there too, but it's a bit too touristy for my taste.
URGENT ADVICE NEEDED I'm flying in 8hrs and I just realised that I might have fucked up: I'm using a trekking bag as my check-in luggage. It has loads of random straps. Like, fuckloads. I'm realised now that these straps can get caught in the conveyor belts and get the bag torn apart... WHAT DO I DO???
pic related, a bag with lots of straps (though not as many as mine)
Thanks to our britbong friends, me and my mates are gonna spend some time in NI during September, hoping gbp keeps short on the euro.
Any tips on cool hidden places to visit, not the usual famous ones (pic related)? Good pubs? Nice little villages where to book a bnb? And finally, I need a honest ren-a-car service. I'm not swimming in money and all the cheap companies seem scams.
>>1132101 there's a load of little things and I tried to write up a reply, but honestly nothing actually jumps out at me as something you should see. And the things people might like to see are all in the middle of nowhere and would take a whole day to get to and return home - definitely rent a car. Belfast might be ok for like 2 days max; try Kelly's Cellars, Madden's, Lavery's (also a big club) for bars in the city centre. There's a load of bars around the Queens university area too.
What is everyone's thoughts on bringing expensive things when travelling? Is it safer to just bring things you don't care about losing?
My dilemma is I want to bring my new S7 Edge and MacBook so I can take nicer photos and have a decent browsing experience, but I'm also aware that it would attract lots of pickpockets and muggers. Also must be a pain to leave charging at hostels while you sleep. Should I just bring a cheap phone instead?
>>1134927 Billund is in the middle of nowhere, at least as much as it can be in a small country. There's also a water park there with vacation homes. I've been to Legoland once when I was a kid. I'm sure the people are perfectly nice. If you're super into LEGO then go, but if you want to experience other stuff also, then I guess you could take a train to Hamburg or go eat at Henne Kirkeby Kro and see the west coast.
I aim to stay for 2 months somewhere between January and March. Want to check out the cities and do a trek of 14-20 days. My first questions would be, is this a good time of year to go, and what would be a sufficient budget for 2 months? Thanks
Don't go during January and March because it is winter and the time of heaviest snow fall winter, which will make a number of treks and mountain passes inaccessible for an indeterminate amount of time.
Really? Wikitravel said March was a good time with warmer temperatures again. It's really the only time in the year I can get a longer time off work, and by then I could have around 2500 spending money saved which according to the (minimal) research I've done so far should be enough.
Late March early April might be okay but there could still be a lot of snow left if your planning on any trekking at slightly higher altitudes. April and may are prime season, snow is gone and monsoons don't come till around June usually.
I have $10,000 - $16,000 to spend on a 6-8 month trip. I will likely be traveling with 1 or 2 friends for about 3 months. Where should we go to get the best value for our $? I am looking for nature, (mountains, forests, beaches) culture/history, some city time for 1 or 2 weeks max. I'm comfortable staying in lower quality accommodations like hostels for the majority of the trip, with some days at nicer hotels once in a while.
I'm considering doing a tour of SEA but am open to anywhere.
>>1134261 Here's a quick lesson. Bourbon is sour mash whiskey. Bourbon is the name of the region it is made in. If it's not made IN Bourbon, you cannot call it Bourbon. That's why Jack Daniels says "Tennessee Whiskey" on the label, even though it tastes identical to many kinds of Bourbon. The same is true of Tequila. If it's not made IN Tequila, then it's mezcal.
How to get some? Go to a big liquor store. There's some good mezcal out there, but there's a lot of good tequila... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1134261 I live in Austin. Yes, there's lots of tequila and mezcal because of our proximity to Mexico. My experience has been craft beer. There's a lot of it here. Some of it is good. Most of it is not.
>>1134370 anything specific you could reccomend? >>1134365 i'm not a big tequila fan but it might be because the sort of tequila you get here comes in bottles with little sombreros, i figure there must be something to it if its so popular so i'm willing to give it a go
