What would you do if you had $100,000 in your travel budget? >Would you hire a team to bushwhack through the Darien? >Would you charter a megayacht for two days? >Would you go to Vegas and blow it all on a ladbro weekend? >Would you one-true it and travel for as long as possible?
>>949621 I currently have over $91000 in my savings and investments so I can give you an actual reply to this instead of just dreaming...
I'm going to spend the next 7 years of my life traveling almost full time but also mixing it with work in other countries. In the next year I'm planning on touring around North America on my motorbike before quitting my job. Afterwards doing a year of work-holiday jobs in either NZ or Australia and then traveling in that region for as long as I feel like it. Then move on to backpacking around East and South-East Asia for a year and then work for a year somewhere over there teaching English before spending another year traveling through South Asia and Iran. So at that point, 6-7 years from now I'll be in Europe where I plan on getting a masters degree and then who knows. I'll be in my 30s by then, I'll probably look for a more stable job and try to start a family, either in Europe or back here in Canada (dual citizen).
So people can get a general idea of how much money to bring, How much did you spend on your trip too japan ? (Excluding flight and hotel price. Strickly spending money)
*lets try to get an average cost for 2 weeks in tokyo, also please describe the type of lifestyle you lived, like going clubbing any chance you got / drinking a ton or just enjoying the tourist areas and not having nights out*

I just got 6 vip tickets to the electric daisy carnival festival in Las Vegas in June. gona be there for 10 days. I'm 22 and all of my mates are the same age and were from New Zealand and We have never been to the USA. I have $100,000 that I'm going to blow during the trip. I'm shouting my friends a all expenses paid trip. How easy is it to score coke/Molly/weed? We have a lot of weed here in NZ but no coke and the quality of Molly is shit so I don't even bother. Any recommendations on where to stay like a baller and what to do? Also is it worth getting a... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I think if you're trying to have a time like that you should talk to a concierge service, just google "vegas concierge". they can get you whatever you need for the right price. you can try to ask any cab driver or doorman too, no one gives a fuck the worst thing someone will say is "sorry bro don't know where to get that". Also, you don't need a bodyguard, that's for sure. If anything that would make you even more of a target. Try to stay low-key if possible. The Bellagio is where ballers stay BTW.
>>946335 This is more /m/ but I guess there's some crossover.
I had a great time climbing this spiral bridge in Chongqing, China. It's kind of scary how high it is and how low the side-wall was. The whole climb I'm turning into the wall due to the turn of the spiral and a bit of fixation on the edge. I had to keep trying not to look at the drop.
I need recommendations for 'real traveler' backpacking locations/routes.
I currently find myself in Southeast Asia and while I espected there to be a lot of tourists I had no idea what it would actually be like. I thought Cancun was the byword for over traveled; every place here is orders of magnitude beyond that I'm currently in Cambodia and there's a fucking Hard Rock Cafe up the street. It's also insanely cheap here and everything is available so I'm enjoying it as a cheap luxurious vacation, but I'm not getting that sense of loneliness,... Comment too long.

- Are there any multi-country West African tours that can be done independently without breaking the bank that have a few highlights? - Paraguay? - Papua New Guinea? - Is anywhere in Eastern Europe under-traveled? (Ukraine?)
Essentially I'm looking for uncomfortable (to keep away the crowds) but not actually dangerous (who wants to be kidnapped).
Just go up to China. The language barrier itself is a challenge. Try not to stay in hostels - ask people where to find a 'lu gwan'. Its a cheap hotel, and they're everywhere. The transport is cheap and fast. If I was you I'd go deep into northern Yunnan and disappear into the temperate valleys comprising the foothills of the Himalayas. Although I've been to Yunnan before, the highest I went was Lijiang. Checking out the Burma/Tibet/Yunnan crossroads is on my itinerary.

Question: how rough can you be with the girls in Thailand? Someone in the other thread mentioned you can mash their faces down into the pillows, etc... What's the norm, and how will they let you know if you go too far? What are the consequences?

4chan is NOT blocked in China but 99% of google is, including captcha which 4chan uses. So...either use VPN or 4chan pass and you're fine. Heavy manual IPs in your hosts file will also work to a point but you have to update it sometimes and it doesn't *always* work.
I'm yet another special snowflake teaching English overseas. At first I was focused on Korea for the financial opportunities but after doing some more research I decided on China. I got offered a contract for 10,000 RMB with a free apartment(or 3000 housing allowance) in Beijing. I'll be leaving February 25.
I will be training for two weeks before I actually start teaching but I was curious if anyone had some insight on how much money to bring with me to survive the first month. I get paid on the 10th of every month... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

Is it a good idea to travel solo if you have severe social anxiety?
It might be a stupid question, but I just don't know what to do. I really want to do something with my life, you know, go out, explore the world, meet people. But that last part is what really terrifies me. I'm afraid that if I do end up going to some foreign country, I'll pretty much just sit inside and shitpost on 4chan all day, and in that case I don't know if there's any point in travelling in the first place, since I can sit inside much more comfortably at home.

>>944766 I wouldn't say I had severe social anxiety when I started but I did love having my comfort bubble that I never left. I worked the same job for 11 years, I never went out, never met new people then one day I decided to take a 3 week trip and throw caution to the wind. Best decision I've ever made.
>>945241 What? In pretty much every western country there's one entry price for tourist sites. There are discounts for students, kids, and retirees but all adults pay the same.
OP, you just have to accept it. Don't look at the prices for locals because it will just make you rage. I don't believe that you went to Egypt and didn't pay to enter anything because no one is stupid enough to travel to another continent only to not see anything.
I no longer feel bad about these price differences, at... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.

I know this is a lazy question, but I need to ask.
Can I get a work visa to work in Japan without a job offer? If I sent an application to the consulate here in America, is there a chance that I could get a work visa? I have a Bachelor's in Computer Science.
I poked around the various websites, like the Ministry of Japan and some consulate, but couldn't find info regarding this.
Im pretty sure this is the first time I've ever been on /trv/ in the 8 or 9 years i've been coming on 4chan, but that picture caught my attention on the front page.
I have to say, having travelled a bit, despite how much I love my good old american hamburgers and ar-15s, we have absolutely NOTHING on good street food compared to most of the rest of the world.
A handful of falaffel and hotdog stands absolutely pale in comparison to the hawker centers and carts in Asian nations I've been to. I remember I was in singapore for business around ramadan... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
