So my relatives want to stay at a fancy beach in California. They want a hotel that's really, really, top of the line fancy. What are some nice beaches in California that have good hotels?

So far I can think of

I live in Coronado, CA and the Hotel Del Coronado is pretty famous for being top of the line in terms of "beach-side luxury" and San Diego has tons to offer. Might be biased because I love living here but its a suggestion.

Cool, they've decided on Coronado. I just found out about Catalina Island though, but I think they made up their mind.

It's cool but it sounds like Catalina Island has hiking, horse back riding, snorkeling and etc.

What are the restrictions on flying international flight on an ultralight aircraft? Specifically from the states to canada then to Ireland and back? What documentation would you need and where would you have to check in for customs and such?

In America you're not supposed to fly an ultralight father then 50 miles from where you took off. They're also limited to 5 gallons of gas.

If you really want to do it look into a sport pilot license, that way you can carry enough gas to get somewhere. Also, float planes for flying over the ocean, but they need calm water to take off again.

Every time a Cuba thread is posted, the only recommendations I ever see are "walk around Havana" or "eat pizza at XYZ" or "the beaches are nice"

Is there anything salvageable about this dumptruck of a country? Why go to Cuba when there's a million other beach-like destination islands nearby with better nature, more activities to take part in, and better sights and museums?

The truth is that if you want an all inclusive beach resort vacation you will find better quality elsewhere in the Caribbean. The all inclusive stuff in Cuba is okay, but mid-tier at best because the food is terrible. Perhaps this is slowly changing since the U.S. lifted the embargo, but I went 4 years ago and with small exceptions the food was disgusting. What I did find incredibly interesting was going to art galleries/shops and leAfing through the prints in boxes out of the main thoroughfare. I found some paintings...

As a Miami native, but who isn't hispanic, I grew up with enough political asylum citizens back with Batista and with Castro both. I will not give a single dollar to their government (or the men who operated the hotels) as a tourist, and I don't think it's entirely safe either, you're jailed just for being in a vehicle that had a car accident. There isn't going to be a true embassy with true relations to protect travelers who get into any trouble for a long time. Though I won't go yet,...

experienced 4 years ago, because a recent starvation issue gave a bit of relaxation on some of the restrictions and entreprenuers who supplement their incomes with in-house restaurants from their own gardens have been given some leeway.

it's not. If you go to the G├╝rtel, there's plenty of places left and right (usually easily recognizable). If you have a car, you can pick up a hooker on the Ausstellungsstra├če around Prater. I also heard good things about the FKK Saunaclub Golden Time though I've never been myself

I am in Vienna now, and was at FKK Goldentime yesterday. Would recommend. It works just like FKK clubs in Germany. Pay 90eur to get in, then for sex acts with a girl it's 60eur starting, and 50-60 more for extras like come in mouth.

Is it worth traveling to Faroe Islands? I've always wanted to visit a scandinavian country. My original idea was Iceland but recently I've been leaning more towards F.I.

Which do you think is "better": exploring a little bit of a wide range of countries or exploring a smaller amount of countries really in-depth?

It seems like a lot of travelers I've met are more into the former, and one's worth is judged mostly by the amount of countries they've been to.

I do both, within reason.

I like going to new places and won't bother traveling if I don't have at least a week to spend in any given country. I've been trying to explore more of Latin America since my first visit last year and am currently on a quick ten-day trip. However, I don't have any guilt about going back to the same few spots over and over again. I've been to Turkey a handful of times since 2013 and have been to India five or six times as well. I've had friends in real...

i prefer spending a short time in a lot of places. i don't socialize well with strangers and i don't make new friends easily, and i'm okay with that, so i don't feel the need to spend a lot of time in one place to get "in" with the locals and learn all the small secrets of an area.

that being said, i do have a respect for people who like to really get in-depth in just a few countries or cultures.

takes all kinds, ya know?

I prefer to spend a long time in each place because it's
1) less stressful - I fucking hate travel days and I don't understand how people can pick up and go every other day and not want to kill themselves
2) more rewarding - I don't think you can really experience any city worth visiting in 1-2 days. I try to do at least a week and even then I realize I'm barely scratching the surface

But to each his own. I can see the benefits of traveling widely and quickly, but I can't fucking...

Are you fucking mental? The food there is disgusting pig knuckle stews and sauerkraut dumplings, it was hideous.

Best Nature- most areas bordering the alps. Probably switzerland.

Best History- Greece/Italy

best food- Italy, especially Bologna.

Nicest people - Romania.

Best Overall- Probably Italy for a mix of all those things.

Italy would win in all categories. Maybe not in nicest people. But this varies with personal experience.

I'm 19 and I solo traveled to Szczecin, Krakow, and Wroclaw. I also solo traveled through Warsaw on my way to Ukraine. Poland is absolutely safe in every way. iirc Poland has lower violent crime rates than western Euro countries. It's basically a poorer version of Germany that's catching up quite quickly. 10 years ago my answer might have been different but Poland in 2016 is quite safe.
