Activity suggestions for a group of 3 travelling to Kyoto and Osaka? Activities within train distance of those areas are also acceptable. Already planning to go to Fushimi Inari Taisha shrine, Phiolsopher's walk, Nishiki food market, Kibune shrine + kawadoko dining, possibly Arashiyama. Haven't planned much for Osaka yet. Also, how is docomo hotspot coverage in Japan? They have a 3 week plan for a very cheap price for foreigners.
>only visiting all-inclusives, never leaving the resort, and only interaction with a local is giving them your drink order yes >traveling to enrich your cultural experience, increase your historical perspective, and challenge yourself physically and mentally no
>>1129375 You know, some people WORK for a living and in thier 3 weeks off a year they would rather be treated like a king than "challenged physically and mentally." I would hardly call that crowd hobbyists either, they typically hit up the same places every year.
Is this route crazy enough to be possible? Warsaw-Kiev-Astana-Almaty-Urumqi-Xi'an-Beijing-Tianjin-Shanghai-Guangzhou-Nanning-Hanoi-Ho Chi Minh City-Phnom Penh-Bangkok-Hat Yai-Kuala Lumpur-Singapore-(ferries and overland trough Sumatra, Java)-Bali. I want to do this all without any airplane flight, just bus, train, hitchhiking. (sth like that on the map, I will choose the best possible option)
Does anybody know what SIM cards are the easiest to obtain in China?
I have to spend a while there for work in a couple months, and I'm going to buy a used unlocked GSM iPhone before I go. I'm planning on buying a prepaid SIM card and using one of their networks (probably China Unicom) while I'm there so I don't have to pay outrageous international rates. But I'm not sure what kind of iPhone to buy, 4s/5s/6s etc. The last thing I want is to get there, discover that all the stores are selling nano SIM cards and my iPhone takes a micro or whatever,...

>>1128955 Bless you, anonymous person, for posting such a quick & reassuring reply. I'll probably get a 5s, since my understanding is that the iPhone 4 etc is starting to not play nicely with the new versions of iOS and that's a headache I don't want to deal with, especially if it happens abroad.
I'm crash-coursing myself in Mandarin, but I very much doubt I'll be able to handle a conversation about anything remotely technological by the time I have to go over there, so I'm really glad... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1128960 you're welcome. I was freaking out about it too when I went, so I sympathize.
only place with english is liable to be the airport, even in beijing. the questions won't be much, they'll just ask for your passport, if you want internet, how much money you want to put on the prepaid. but if your tones are off they'll understand nothing ,lol.
good luck. china is super safe and for their reputation as super rude, I've actually found that they're mostly polite but aloof. it's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hi guys, I am in Dallas right now and plan moving to Houston by car this Saturday morning and getting back on Sunday, I'm going to take a room for 1 night via airbnb. My primary goal is space center excursion, so if someone wants to join me, please welcome. I am Russian male, 31 and I am in business trip in US for 2 weeks. I wouldn't say my English is fluent, so my secondary goal is to get some language practice with locals. In turn I could give you some set of Russian words if you will) I'm hoping this small travel is interesting for someone
That highway that runs though Dallas has more strip clubs along the exits than I've ever seen anywhere else. Stripping must be Texas's main source of income. After washing off people's windshield's at street intersections with newspaper.
Hey travel, I would really like to travel the carribean this winter. A few questions: For one are these places cheap? I'm looking to backpack through here so no tourist resort shit. I'm a usa citizen, will I need visas for each island or what? Lastly I've heard that you can sail there from the canary islands in spain. Has anyone heard of this? Does anyone have any experiences in the carribean to share? Thanks
It depends on the country. For instance the currency in the Grand Cayman Islands is worth more than the US dollar. The currency in the Dominican Republic is far less. In general, US dollar is worth more, though. I know Visas aren't necessary via cruise ships, but I don't know about flying.
>>1128643 Grand Cayman is more expensive than the USA. Not by much. One Grand Cayman dollar is worth like 1.20/1.25 US or something. Most Carribean currency the US dollar is worth more, how much more varies widely, and also you have to deal with being overcharged for being a tourist, unless you know how to haggle or have a local guide. In tourist areas you can end up paying more than home, even though the US dollar is worth more.
Hi /trv/ I really want to travel but I get horrible anxiety on planes and being far away from my flat. I have travelled in the past when I was younger (20 I am 25 now) but have not travelled since I did a big solo trip to indonesia when I was 20. For whatever reason I developed anxiety when I flew and became anxious being far away from my flat and it has really put me off. I since havent been out of the country and only done small 1.5 hour max flights. To make things worse I live in New Zealand so any where I want to go there is no option of just driving back or something and... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The what ifs scare me too, so I just started doing short trips that last a week, and am going to SEA in September, along with seeing a doctor about anxiety. Just worried once I get somewhere completely different I'll panic and won't be able to navigate.
Depending on where you go, you may be able to take some medication. I'm 23 and pretty jealous of people who traveled at 18-22 so keep your head up.
>>1128588 >Has anyone had anything similar? Still do. >How did you over come it? Obviously it can't really apply to you since you're from NZ but now I do road trips almost exclusively and I love it. Living in North America does help.
>>1128591 That was my plan just doing short trips to places that are short flights away and having some xanax or some shit and enough money to fly back if I fuck out majorly. Or as lame as it sounds travelling with my parents for support
How do you guys handle being sick while traveling? I'm 3 days into a 2 month trip and I've caught a pretty nasty cold. So I'm currently laying on my bed at an estonian hostel being miserable?
I feel like shit, I don't want to lay around all day but I want to get over this thing ASAP. Going to venture out to a supermarket and a pharmacy in a bit to pick some stuff up? What "on the shelf meds" can you get in Europe for colds? Can you get psuedophedrine here? Please help, or share or own stories of traveling while sick.
hey there im looking for a nice affordable place to stay and work (not legally exactly) im looking on dublin right now, as an american how hard would it be to find a not so shitty job, any other ideas are welcomed.
>>1127960 Ireland is almost the only European country (perhaps even the only European country? I know we have very few) that has a Working Holiday Visa agreement with the US, so that may be the place to start: https://www.dfa.ie/travel/visas/working-holiday-visas/
American here, thinking about taking an unexpected summer trip to Spain this summer. Our gov has put out a travel advisory stating that traveling to Europe might be dangerous for us. Is this true? Also what should I do if I do go?
