Shanghai over Beijing, any day of the week.

Beijing is a fucking shithole, Shanghai is wild, beautiful and completely nuts.

I really liked Taipei too, but SH is always going to be my second home.

Taipei is better for food though, I'll say that.

Bear in mind if you're going via a confucius institute, it doesn't include taiwan

I like Beijing, some areas of Beijing are really nice.
Also for standard mandarin, Beijing is better even though it is now fully filled by nongming (peasants) with disgusting accents.

i will most likely get a scholarship from my univeristy so i can go anywhere i want including taiwan.

I have that feeling that Taiwan is way more progressiv and open to foreigners than China. Is that true? Did you have any problems with the locals or did you just hangout with other freigners?

10 KB,
I am looking to go to one of the Baltic capitals over the Christmas period just for a few days before i head off on my second SEA trip in January, so which city would you recommend the most?
Criteria - Architecture, Price, Good food, Bars and general nice ambiance.

So, Tallinn, Riga or Vilnius?

I will maybe be going alone or maybe with a girl.

I can't say I know the Baltic countries but I would say Riga is the most beautiful city.
>>
>>1045836
Probably this. Vilnius is not bad either though. Tallinn felt more modern out of the three.

I enjoyed Riga most of them but that's maybe because they had the best hostel.
>>
>>1045835
Hmm. I went to them in a row in winter and I enjoyed Tallinn most. For some reason Riga didn't do much to me (was enjoyable though), but I am sure I need to go back sometime in summer. Spend few hours in Vilnius and it looked great in the layer of snow.

How do you avoid gypsies?

They're always trying to pickpocket me and they're fucking everywhere: Barcelona, Paris, Istanbul and Sweden. The worst is when they try to sell you worthless stuff to distract you; I once caught a gypsy girl trying to steal the wallet from my pocket.

lol i guess you have to be born in eastern europe to get the necessary skills.

let me share some of them with you.

do not carry anything that is more valuable than the average of what tourist are carrying in the area. do people have cheap phones in that country in general? that's a sign for you to leave your golden iphone 6s at home, and take a throwaway huawei or something. do not let your camera hang on your under no circumstances.

do not show all your cash. have coins spread all over your pockets of your trousers and jacket and every other pocket you have. similarly, put different notes in different pockets. depending on how much you need to pay and how many people see you pay, take out only the most suitable note, and do not touch the other pockets.
dress down. in istanbul go as far as to carry plastic bags instead of proper bags if you're in the really bad area. make sure the bag is moderately used, and not see-through. better yet, do not carry a bag if it's avoidable.
probably the best advise is to have a poor face. do not look content with your life, especially during night. someone asks you something? ignore it. do not look their way. if you accidentally look, do not smile, do not frown, no sudden movements, just keep your pace and act as if you just accidentally looked their way instead of noticing their presence. do they follow you? go to a lighter area. look for security cameras, places where there's more traffic, anywhere where people could hear you ask for help. if you're being followed first try to avoid going in the direction of your hotel, just try to go somewhere moderately crowded.
speaking of crowds, avoid crowds otherwise. people should not touch you in crowds, even if it's a latin place. create your space and guard it. if someone enters your space, make brief eye contact with them, check their hands, but also check for any other pressure or loss of pressure of your bag straps.

that was 101, any eastern euro person could write a novel on this

What are state border checks like?
I'm moving from california into oregon, and bringing a bunch of reptiles with me. Nothing is actually illegal, but I don't want to deal with all the shit I would imagine i'd get going through a border check with a fuckload of exotic animals. Are there even checks?

>>1044696
For the full trip? Unless you want to go full hobo mode, no.

Airfare will be in the 3-4k region at least even if you get all flights as super saver specials.
SEA about $25 per day (2250), Australia $50 per day (1500), South America $35 per day (2100) is what you need for hostel, mostly cook your own meals, no/tiny amounts of alcohol, non smoker, minimal public transport/taxi use and maybe going out every other week once.

so
3000
+2250
+1500

= 8850

Hello, anyone have experience traveling in Indonesia? I will be flying into Jakarta for 20 days in January. I wanted to spend a few days in Jakarta at least and explore the city. The Jakarta surrounding area too like Bogor and Bandung.

I was thinking of taking a train to Yogyakarta to see the temples and exploring more of Java.

Does anyone recommend anything I must do/see while there? Or any other destinations?


Also, from your experience how safe is Jakarta and other places in Indonesia for a solo traveler. I have read its overall a safe place, but...

Hi trv,

I'm Dutch, and for a project I'm trying to collect opinions from foreign people who have visited The Netherlands. I'm interested in what you guys did here, why, where you stayed, which places you visited, what you thought of the Dutch as a people, what you liked, what you hated etc etc etc. Help me out and let loose!

I did a short trip by car to Netherlands and Belgium recently. Been to Amsterdam, Hague, Rotterdam, Utrecht and Maastricht. I've slept in a tent in Amsterdam and then rented bungalows on various campings 20-30 km away from the major cities. Moved strictly on foot through the cities, it's tiring but the best way to get the feel of a city.
Random observations:
- piss easy to communicate in English, pretty much everyone speaks it well
- the bikes are a pain in the ass and you constantly have to watch out for them. Impressive how popular they are though.

So I always wondered about those. Do you see any savings compared to someone who takes a compact car and stays in cheap motels? It seems like those camper vans burn through fuel fast and have a lot of maintenance involved. Plus you still have to pay if you want to use a campground.
