Not sure what your hobbies are, but it's a fairly small city.
Most people go clubbing during thursays, fridays and saturdays.
I used to live there, so ask about anything.

How about the average age? Are there a lot of students ? Hobbies are doing sports and hang out, nothing special really

Okay /trv/ anons, serious question here. How many countries have official immigration services that help you with all the immigration process, with websites where you can answer questionnaires to see if you're fit. So far, only Canada and Australia have this service. Trying to bounce ASAP, so if you can include links and information you'll have my eternal gratitude.

NZ also has something like this but the acceptance process is not as clear as the two you've mentioned. No point system and the decision is left to their discretion.

I'm travelling with my parents to Gran Canaria soon to celebrate a birthday. I find the touristy stuff to be sad and boring and I tried to convince them of another location but oh well.

Tips on what to do on the island to get away from the worst tourist traps? I'm 22 y o old if that helps.

As long as you stay out of playa del ingles and maspalomas it's actually pretty good.
Las Palmas is decent, the nature in the center of the island is gorgeous and the small towns also offer nice food.
Rent a car, drive around, go hiking or diving...
>>
>>1065517

It's not really a place with individual incredible attractions. Stay away from the blatantly tourist stuff and have a good time. Just bring a book and some swimming trunks and enjoy yourself drinking, eating, relaxing, hiking, and shit on your parents dime. It might seem lame but its always nice to get away.

It's all relative and you should get in the right mindset. I know to an English person the canaries are kind of boring but to an American it'd be quite enticing.

Travel advice please!

Just arrived at Mendoza, Argentina. I have a flight leaving from Lima, Peru on Saturday the 16th at 11pm. Not sure how to divide time between Mendoza at Cusco (haven't booked flights yet to Cusco and to Lima).

With LAN Airlines, I'm getting good prices from Mendoza->Lima only on Saturday the 9th (leaving 2.5 days in Mendoza, 5.5 days in Cusco) and Wednesday the 13th (leaving 6.5 days in Mendoza, 1.5 days in Cusco). I also checked flights leaving from Santiago too.

Any ideas? I'm interested in hiking, but also the culture...

Rented one in Kyoto. Not as cheap as you'd think for Asia.

You will need a CC, Passport, International Permit.

What else do you want to know?
>>
>>1066681
I believe buying requires residency for registration purposes, so not possible for a tourist except on a working holiday.

Look on goobike and webike for listings. And if those websites are too Japanese for you, don't bother at all.

Also note that traffic is slow here and expressways are expensive and a pain. Expect to to lose the better part of 20000 yen if you decide to go through Shikoku, for example.

Austria's an option as well, but certain to be more expensive. All of Hungary's neighbouring countries actually have worthwhile mountain areas as far as I know, but landmines may be an issue in the Balkan area.

Took my wife to dinner at link below, it was very good and swanky but expensive. But then, everything in Iceland tends to be expensive.

How is hitchhiking in SEA? Anyone done something like that over there? Is it dangerous? Is it necessary to learn the local languages?

Hitchhiking is very good (almost Middle East tier) in Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia, pretty bad in Laos, Cambodia and Myanmar.

Why hitchhike in countries where you can travel the width of the country for 10 bucks?

Also, hitchhiking in the western sense if basically unheard of. If a local flags down a ride it is expected that they will pay something.

>>1066928
The reason why I'm hitchhiking is only partly the low cost of travel. I really like to meet locals in a not economic/touristic context and hear what they have to say, how they like it there, what they dream of doing, how their world view is different from mine.
Plus you can get on a much more intimate level. For example: in Iran a lot of people asked me to join them for dinner, to meet their families etc.

Also I figured it's kind of unheard of. Same in the middle east. But that doesn't always...

Hey fellow travellers, I've recently inherited a small piece of land and without going into details, I've considered converting it into an off the grid travel destination.

My goal is to have a couple dozen tiny homes / cottages, scattered over 30 acres of land with a focus on communal vacationing. All of the cottages would be basically cabins, no running water, limited electricity but augers for heat and outdoor natural showers / toilets at at least half the spots.

I know I'd go if somebody offered this, but I can't help but wonder if I'm...

Well I have always loved that idea. But keep in mind people won't want to pay to be somewhere without running water. Depending on the state the location is in you could collect rain water and naturally filter the water. Every cabin should have its own toilet and stand up shower at least.
>>
>>1066596


true, and thank you. the place I have is surrounded by campgrounds that sell out for most of the season, so generally people are comfortable with a less glamorous lifestyle here I suspect.

These are what I was thinking about for outdoor showers / tubs at some of the cottages, and a common room in the centre of the property, like a campground.

It'd be interesting to know how much the need for private toilets would impede people
>>
>>1066604
Okay I understand a little bit more now by what you mean. Like a campground. I thought you meant like a self sustaining outdoor motel kind of thing. I'm sure that will work if there are other camping spots around that fill up fast, not a shabby idea :)

I'm an going with my girlfriend to Vietnam for the first time this summer. Her parents are from Vietnam and her dad still live there, so we have planned to live with him, and her sisters, for three weeks.
Now I was wondering, what is your experience with Vietnam? I have heard that the customs at the airport is terrible and that you have to slip them some extra money, is that true? How high is the risk that you will fall sick? So just wondering if you have any general advice.

That was not my experience, had no problems at all. Maybe avoid looking like a dirty hippie drug smuggler when you arrive...

You will likely get a case of the runs, depending on where you go you'll need to think about the risks of things like Malaria and Hep, etc.

I have flown to HCMC and Hanoi, and never had that experience. I can't imagine it even happening at the airport because the border part at least is pretty professionally run.

I'm flying to Vietnam for third time now, and customs are fine, people are friendly, its all lies.

Things to look out for:
- Lizards in bed
- Only take official taxi or prepare to pay up double if not tripple
- Exchange money in legit gold shops, not at some market gold shop. Reason: high chance they will slip in some counterfeit bills with real ones and you wont even know.
- Avoid alleys and calm streets. High chance you'll get jumped and brutally robbed. Just stay on busy roads, shouldnt...
