ITT: Places that you want to go but the very real risk of being murdered or kidnapped prevents it.

Here's the citadel of Derbent, in Dagestan. There's been a city here for over 5000 years, the citadel was built by the Sasanian Empire in 500 AD.

I'd kill to see this in the flesh, sadly since it's in fucking Dagestan it's more likely that I'd be kidnapped and brutally murdered by islamic rebels.

Congo (this one is partly doable though but currently I think the hassle sets me back)
Yemen (maybe you can exclude socotra)
Tibet (not dangerous just off limits for the independent traveler)
Venezuela (though I think the tepuis and the jungle interior are not that dangerous)

I really have not given up on them. I hope during my life I will visit some of them. But currently I don't dare doing them
there's always Irbil, capital of Kurdistan.

Irbil may be the oldest continuously occupied city on Earth.
I've always wanted to see the breakway states around the former USSR. like the autonomous jewish oblast which was the first jewish state. Nagorno Karabak which is an armenian enclave completely surrounded by azerbaijan. south ossetia would be nice (in georgia) as well as Transnistria in Moldova and cechnya

As a solo-traveler and avid /p/fag I personally hate them. Just fucking ask someone to take your photo, it's very very rare that you'll be in a location all alone that would require this. I also absolutely hate people who take photos with ipads or other tablets.

I can see the selfie sticks as being good if you're into recording videos, especially of sports and extreme activities like rock climbing.
I hate them just as much as people using their tablet. Then I saw a group of Asians with iPads on selfie sticks.

I went and it was good. Public transport is annoyingly difficult and the food is rubbish, but when I wasn't standing by the road getting my thumb sunburnt, I was having absolute nonstop fun. Would've been twice as good with a buddy, of course.

Anyone else shipping off to Korea with the EPIK program in the next few days? So much freaking paperwork. How's it going?

This is a Korea Thread. How is it living there? I got Busan. Pretty hyped on that. Good luck getting there. pic not related.

Coming up on my third contract. It's pretty cool here, but some stuff can drive you crazy if you let it. It's an easy job but do us all a favor and treat it somewhat seriously.

Busan is a bit prettier (surroundings) and more laid back than Seoul but also much smaller. Extra bonus of being farther from the big military bases.

I'm up in Incheon, feel free to ask anything.
Yeh, coming up on my third contract too. Good advice already laid down. Pro tip - Never be scared to let your co workers know how "busy" and "stressful" your work is. Because that's what they're going to do. Even if they're never legit busy. Play the game brah.

Busan is awesome. I live in Incheon. But I've been down there twice. I'm probably going to head down again for a little spring or summer break. It's pretty down there.

Korea is fun as hell man. Especially if you are single and not hideous. Korean chicks are top tier.

How does it compare to Thailand and Cambodia? My wife and I are planning on going to Laos here soon and I would like to also go to Burma but I am not sure itll be feasible, since its so hard to travel in Burma and time constraints. The trip would go roughly

I believe someone will respond to this eventually. There are people here that have been to Burma
Go to Burma it's rapidly changing and in a few years it will be as populated with tourists as it's neighbors.

(2012)I got around via bus and plane and had little to no problem. Yes it's easier to get around Thailand, if it wasn't for years of shit government, corruption, and mismanagement Thailand would be closer to KL an Singapore.
Yangon is kinda trashy, I say spend no more than a day here, the LP walking guide is suprisingly decent and you can end your day at the Strand chilling during happy hour. I took a comfortable night bus up to Bagan and spent 3 nights. Bagan by bicycle was such a chill, laid back, and wonderful sight. Personally I love temple architecture, so it was a huge bonus for me. We then took a bus to Kalaw for a staging point of a 3 day walk to Inle (¬60km). Inle was nice, but unless you really love riding a bike by a lake and taking in wineries, it's not too amazing. However I would work it into any plan. We (coworker and I) then flew to Ngapali Beach and had another few wonderful days. It's expensive over there, we managed to get into a hotel that was finishing construction for $40/night some Bungalows were $300. The beach was pristine and quiet. I really wish that I had visited Mandalay and Amarapura Bridge. Over all I believe we spent 19days there and I plan on returning soon/ You are right there are areas open to travel which are harder to get to, but the main stops are easy. The road to Kalaw or Inle is the bumpy one, the main highways going from Yangon to the North and smooth. Buses are better than trains for cost, safety, and cleanliness.
It's easier to get around Thailand, don't forget they're #2 in the world for road deaths though. Cambodia, I felt it was as easy as Burma to get around. I have little experience in Laos.
However, if your wife is worried about undeveloped, why the hell are you considering SEA at all? Delays, lack of foresight and safety, laid back "get there whenever" attitude etc. Also, stay away from Phuket.

>are there any other movies that sum up the comfyness of travel?
how so? I'm not trying to harass you, but that movie didn't really light my fire. I watched primarily on the suggestion of a very Catholic friend, and religiosity was my major takeaway from it.

I just mean the getting lost, meeting new people, some of them are weird as fuck, that sort of thing. And the shots of the country were great.

Hey /trv/

Say I wanted to go across Africa in a school bus that I'm living in.

What kinds of legal things would I have to consider in regards to crossing boarders, visas and insurance?
44 replies and 3 images submitted. Click here to view.
Own or rent the bus? Rentals may have restrictions on where you can take them.

Other than that, you'd need to know the same visa rules as anybody else, and be prepared for dicking around with customs for an extended time, or bribing to be cut loose, or both.

Insurance is a question you'd get best answers by contacting your carrier.
Aside from a valid registration and insurance (which will probably be the trickiest part since insurance that's valid in one country may not be valid in another), you'll probably be required to carry a Carnet de Passages.

It's a bond document that certifies that you are the owner of the vehicle and you're not going to sell it or use it to do business while you're in their country.

I'd also expect to get scrutinized quite a lot at border crossings, since it's a bus they...

Hey /trv/elers

So I'm planning my next trip to Asia and not sure where exactly I will go yet but was considering these places: Vietnam, Thailand, Taiwan, Korea.

I've been to Asia once, to the Philippines and Hong Kong. I'm a traveler noob and only been to Asia and Eastern Europe once. Some questions I have are out of the options which would suit a beginner more? I like to see the historical sights, also enjoy some night life but it's not my main focus. Not into fucking whores either, nope. What are the advantages and disadvantages of these...

Burma, cambodia, vietnam, laos. Thailand is a shithole full,of lowlifes, .burma and cambodia got very nice beaches and astonishing historical sights ( bagan, siem reap for example)
For the visa, iam not sure, normally the visa lasts a njmber of days , the departure and arrival time you can possibly just file out in the documents you get on the airplane.
You can be early on a visa but not late. Being late to arrive will get you turned around. Being late to leave is ok if it's only a day or two (they don't shit themselves if you missed a train or a flight was sold-out or something, explain the story and it will most likely be ok), you get fined for a few more and fined, deported and barred for too many.

My advice would be to get the Vietnam visa in a SEA country where it's cheap and easy, same day even if you're early/lucky.

Visas are...

>I will need a Visa if I want to enter Vietnam
So, American, then?

There are visa service companies for Vietnam who will take a scan of your passport and $50 and set everything up for you for visa upon arrival at the airport. I don't know one offhand, but they've been posted here before, maybe someone will remember one.

Taiwan, I don't really recommend it because there isn't a lot of touristy stuff to do, but if you're really wanting to see old Chinese...

It's cheap rooms in japan for the homeless as an alternative. They are small and cheap, not really meant to be hung out in a lot imo.
