>>1063065 Do they use us nurses or nurse practitioners? I used to live in Vietnam, and traveled all over the region over 4 years. Recommend ha nang in North Vietnam, dating an educated local for companionship and travel, motorbike trips into mountains, and Burma. You will get used to the cost of everything. I would try to stay away from the seedy underbelly of sea, but to each their own. Cambo really bummed me out compared to the rest of the region, but I vhalk it down to psychedelics and genocide museums. Ankor wat is A+.
The title really says it all guys. I'm going backpacking for 25 days through Vietnam starting the 28th of December. We're flying into Hanoi and from there, the country is our oyster. Our only set trip is to Phu Quoc for three days before we fly back up to Hanoi and than back to the states. While we've decided to leave most of our trip unplanned, what are the must see's? Which places will give us the best bang for our buck? Has anyone ever biked for a duration of their stay there? We want to bike but we aren't sure where we should/if its worth it.
You come at a wrong time my friend. Vietnam in the summer is a lot more fun seeing how beaches and tropical weather are our strong points. That being said:
1. Northern Vietnam: go to Sa Pa up north and climb the Fan Si Pang. Hanoi's winter is pretty nice, just rent scooters drive around and see shit for yourself, try plenty of street foods too. Go to Quang Binh for the caves and stuffs. Hookers are cheap in Hanoi
2. Mid Vietnam: Hoi An is overhyped but if you're into the old dynasty side of Vietnam then give it a shot
3. Southern: Ho Chi Minh... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
North: Hanoi (desu i thought it was way better than Ho Chi Minh), Ha long bay (it might be foggy), Sa Pa & the mountains, Ninh Binh.
Middle: Hue & Palace, Danang for beaches and royal tombs, Hai van pass (rent a motorbike, its amazing).
South: Ho Chi Minh, Chu Chi tunnels, Mekong Delta, Floating markets.
That's all the major stuff i did when i went to Vietnam in the summer last year, weather is good all around but Ha Long and Sa Pa might be foggy (though they weren't for us... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1062558 I know, I wish we could've chosen to go in the summer, but we both start our full time jobs in February and this is out last hoorah.
Thanks for the advice in the North. Is it worth it to get suits made in Hoi An/Da Nang? We read it was the best place overall.
Why would you say its better being white? My travel companion is light skin lol. What street foods would you recommend? I already love Pho, but that's in the US of course, so I'm sure its completely different.
Definitely... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1061651 Book a massage a couple days in advance at Szechenyi, or there won't be one available the day you wish to go. Musts: Terror House ~3hrs, Hospital in the rock possible in the evenings when doing fisherman's bastion and castle buda. Some of the best klezmer music restaurants need a reservation too, so plan ahead for that experience.
>>1061693 When it comes to tourist, Budapest is like most of other big cities. There would be many hospitable people, some who hate tourists, most do not care. There is significantly less English spoken than in Western Europe, but when you're there for a week, you probably won't really notice that.
Note down the Király utca-Kazinczy utca area as well for food, drinks, bars.
I am interested in doing a one year Master's degree in Australia. Excluding tuition fees, how much should I have saved up before moving? I am a Singaporefag with Aussie citizenship. I am a bit worried about not getting used to the culture there and ending up depressed and miserable (for some reason, this seems common amongst immigrants in the west).
>>1061307 The depression is usually the result of being disconnected from friends, family, and familiarity.
The specifics of how much money you'll need, you'll probably need to take up with a spreadsheet over long, painful hours, but I doubt that the living expenses are proportionally/PPP more than Singapore.
I stopped by a while back asking for advice on where to go in South America. Tickets are now booked! I’ll be heading to Colombia for three weeks in January, I can’t wait. I am really excited about all the possibilities the country appears to offer from jungle in the south, to mountains, pacific coast and Caribbean beaches! Sorry for the guide book introduction, but I cant wait and it is the first time I’m heading further south west than Mexico (I am from Denmark btw).

>Disneyland >celebrity death tour >watch Chinatown so you can more fully appreciate how grotesque development was ...also, I imagine it's possible to troll 3rd tier entertainment people with requests for interviews or talent/casting submissions. Getting a troll meeting during your vacation would be a great Life Story.
Something not many people know is that talk show tickets are free. I know Conan and maybe Kimmy Kimmel tape in LA. There is a long queue to get tickets but it's an interesting experience if you can come by them, I saw conan and there seemed to be quite a few open seats
If you want to get beyond Austin (which is nice) you'll need cash or car. You can pay for direct flights to LA, Chicago, NYC and Miami. You can drive to New Orleans, AZ/Grand Canyon, and farther to Las Vegas or the Mark Twain areas according to your interests. The economics are going to be weird so I suggest you make as many friends as possible.
If you want to backpack in the /trv/ manner as an American would on Eurorail you can do that airplanes. However, if you want to experience the AMERICA and our national legend, you'll need a car. This is going to be terribly... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1063796 How big are your balls and what is the degree impact of the classes you'd be taking in the US? Our professors typically seek to minimize student interaction so if you pick your classes properly you can spend several weeks on Greyhound or similar buses.
Where can I find the addresses to these type of wall murals, and which cities have them? I am going to be traveling the US next summer and I think it would be cool to find a bunch of these in as many cities as I can to take a picture of myself in front of them.
I'm going backpacking in Europe and the sticky recommends a camping stove. It makes sense, but will I be able to use them in hostels or is this just for camping areas in Europe? Anyone got any insight in this? Thanks
be careful with german hostels, most of them are pretty old/ haven't been renovated in a long time and many usually don't have communal kitchens so always check for that online. i'm a german geology student so i've seen quite a lot of hostels here on my field trips though most of them were more in the country side.
Anyone have experience traveling to Russia(specifically Americans)? I was planning on going to Moscow and/or St. Petersburg this summer and I was wondering what others think of the situation and if anyone has any tips. Is it a good idea? What is the possibility that I'll be given a tourist visa? Any help is appreciated.
Hey /trv/ Im solo traveling berlin for a week and a half. Anyone here who want to meet up for some beers or go clubbing? Also looking for tips on what to do besides partying. My main intrests are music, synthesizers, modern history, graffiti etc
Would've done it, but I'm in Israel from the 30th.
There are plenty of museums in Berlin. You could go to the Historic Museum which is right "Unter den Linden" near the Cathedral. Also if you are interested in GDR-History you should visit "Stasigefängnis Hohenschönhausen" or the "Stasi-Headquarters" in Lichtenberg. For Grafitti you could just wander around a bit or take the U1. That line is elevated, so you can look outside.
