I'm going to be there for 11 days or so. I'll be staying in Bangkok for at least part of it and my friend wants to go to Phuket.

Are hostels safe to stay in? I have some luggage (a fairly big backpack and a suitcase), will it be secure there and will I have some place to store it with it being relatively safe from theft?

Approximately how much Baht will I probably need to include hostel, food, alcohol (probably), travel between Bangkok and Phuket and back, etc?

If anyone has answers to some of these questions, it would be greatly appreciated.

About 2 years ago I went from Bangkok to Phuket and back with Air Asia.
I don't remember the exact fare, can't have been more than 100 $ I guess.
Anyway if things haven't changed since, domestic flights depart from Don Mueang, not Suvanabhumi.
There's also the train and bus options if you don't mind a longer trip

Never travelled solo in my life. Going to visit Vietnam next month and have no clue how it feels like to do everything by myself. Also not very outgoing. The idea that I´m going to a bar and drink a beer alone by myself while other people are socializing and having fun freaks me out. Any stories/experience? btw I´m not white so the whole asians love white guys thing is out for me

I have one question, kind of related with travel.

Does travelling alone for a month, to a place where I don't know the language, helps me with my severe anxiety?

If you make the most of it and take up every opportunity then yes.

Get out of your comfort zone, talk to new people and do things you wouldn't do back home.

I was a pretty shy person but after months of living in hostels with strangers I can start a conversation with anyone and now I enjoy talking to new people, something I hated before.

Travelling in Southeast Asia for 2-3 months next year with GF. No detailed planning, but we've a rough idea that we want to travel Myanmar -> Laos -> Cambodia (Maybe Vietnam instead or afterwards)
Been discussing if we should purchase two motorcycles while we're down there and sell them to other backpackers when we live, so:
What's a good price for a motorcycle that'll last us those few months?

Any problems travelling with a motorcycle from one country to another and then selling it?

Now that THAT'S out of the way, I am not a motorcycle but can speak generally about Thailand, Vietnam and Cambodia.

I really enjoyed time around Siem Reap, but that's an obvious destination that will already occurred to you. The temple complex on Man Mountain (Phnom Pros, near Kampong Cham) is a modern, day-glo SEA Wat complex that I liked, but I am not sure it is "better" than any of a hundred others.

Ha Long bay is worth a trip, plan to spend some time on one of the many excursion boats, even if that sounds too touristy, unless you can rent...

I want to move to Quebec for a few months and practice my French.

Where is a good place to stay and if it is possible work for a short time? Do they have hostels like Europe? Is it pretty expensive? I figure if I want to immerse myself, Quebec would be easiest since I live in the US and Haiti speaks Creole.

I've spent a year in Egypt (what a horrible country) and visit Mexico pretty often. What is Canada like and Quebec in particular?

If you're serious about learning French stay outside Montréal. People there switch to English the moment they think you're not comfortable speaking French. Go live in Québec city, Sherbrooke, Trois-Rivière, Rimouski or if you realy have balls one of the towns further north. You will learn in no time.

If you absolutely must stay in Montréal go for the eastern side of the city. The west if just another boring version of Toronto.

Don't worry mate, I have a full proof system that I used in Egypt. I simply pretend not to know English and that I only know Spanish. Egyptians always switch to broken English but I got around it. It also helps that I'm brown.

What is wrong with the towns up north that I need balls for it?

Most ruins are like that. You'll find people disappointed by all of them. Get yourself really psyched up in history and archaeology, maybe even some fiction, so you can feel it come alive. It aint gonna be like in Indiana Jones, that's for sure.

Opposite reaction, I thought the Angkor ruins around Siem Reap were amazing. The "miniature" temple Banteay Srei (pic related) was my favorite.

But >>1057672 has a point -- ruins can be just old fallen-down buildings unless you know something about them.

Your opinion is valid for you, of course, hope you had a better time elsewhere on your trip.
>>
>>1057676

OP here

Thats subjectivity for you because I thought Banteay Srei was the most boring and disappointing. Especially after the tuktuk took about an hour to get there and it bumped the cost of the day tour up to about $30

You are trying to apply hotel mentality to hostels. Not the same rental of a room thing, but rather water usage, towel usage, bed linens, etc.
If she stayed in some common room in the lobby with you, might not have been a problem, but anyone that is going to get bent out of shape over $11, when you snuck her past the desk without notice coming and going, then they aren't really able to keep good track of what thievery you had going on and then later wanted to argue about.

It's bad form. Go ahead...

No. There's no ferry service between Australia and Asia. The options you have are cruise ships or cargo ships that take paying passengers. If you have sailing skills it's possible to find a boat that will take you for your services.

why would you want to move to a place where you don't belong? If you're just following orders ask those orders the questions you're trying to ask here. In other don't be dumb.
