What are some long (1+ days) train trips you've taken? (preferably non-European)

Would you do it again?

Washington, DC to Seattle, Washington. Took us the better part of 4 days since we stopped in Milwaukee, Grand Forks, and Shelby. Was a very nice trip and highly recommend it.

Longest one was Springfield, MA, to Oakland, CA. Took about three days. In a chair, in coach, no shower. I enjoyed it, but I'm not young and poor anymore, so would get a sleeper if I were to do it again.

Other than that, no super-long trips. Did a lot of overnight or all-day trains in Thailand (Bangkok--Chiang Mai many times, Bangkok--Surat Thani twice, Bangkok--Butterworth (Penang) once. But none of these were more than approx. 1 day.

What's this? No eternal San Francisco travel thread? Guess I'll make one.

Okay, so I'll be in San Francisco for 5 days in June. I know it's going to be an amazing place to visit (I was there 9 years ago as a teen, and my fondest travel memories are from there). I haven't really begun building my day to day itinerary though. All I know is that we will be doing a ton of walking, we'll take a day trips to Yosemite (guided tour. Worth it?) and Napa Valley, and we'll be doing some dining at the best restaurants.

So from people who...

Sutro Bath Ruins. It used to be a large indoor swimming pool until it burned down. Pretty cool at night.
Bernal Heights. Good view of the city.
The wave organ
555 Mission Street Sculpture Garden
Alcatraz. I hear the night tour is pretty cool. Book it fast though.
Marin headlands, but not Muir Woods
Walk up or down California Street
Burma Superstar. Get the samusa soup!
Marnee Thai
The Little Chihuahua. I'm sure other people have better taquerias in mind but it's pretty good.

Hi /trv/, first time on this board!

I have a question, I've been lurking around the China and Japan generals and I have been thinking of visiting said countries for awhile now.

The question is, would it be possible to take a 2-3 week trip with around $4,000 next summer to visit parts of both countries? I would of course need to find places to stay in Japan and I have family in Shanghai in which I could stay with.

In case if it may not seem possible to do, what are the best ways of traveling and getting to know each country under this kind of budget...

I don't know anything about Japan, but this early, you should be able to find airfare to Shanghai from around $800. Check vayama.

If you have someone to stay for free in SH that will be immensely helpful. It's the most expensive city in China but still relatively cheap. Are you just staying in Shanghai this time or are you going to travel outside the city?
>>
>>1121001
That all depends if I end up making it a Japan/China trip or splitting them up. If I was to do it together I'd probably stay for acouple of days and see if there is anything outside of the city that I can visit while still being somewhat closeby that I can go visit, though I'm not to well read up on what to do in China. Hoping to probably see the nightlife in Shanghai but it would be difficult due to the fact that I am stay with a family and I don't want to distrust them late at night lol.

Also would it be better to travel around these area alone (besides Shanghai since I would have family there) or should I find some kind of tour group?

Hey /trv/! I have my eyes set on Iran. It seems like such an interesting and beautiful country to me, away from tourism and out of the spotlight. I know it's not really a dangerous country in any way, but here's the thing: I'm gay. And my boyfriend is Persian. It would be really awesome to travel to Iran with him for a while, but I have no idea what security is like for a visiting gay couple there. Sure we can act platonic in public, but how safe is it to be romantic behind closed doors? Like would people get suspicious if we stayed in the same hotel room and...

There's an EuroNight train Silesia which supposedly has direct cars Krakow-Budapest. It leaves Krakow at 21:58 and comes to Budapest at 8:37. But be sure to check more info as some cars go to Vienna.
But I guess Polskibus will be much cheaper and it's also faster (only 7 hours) as the road is more direct. One leaves Krakow, Bosacka at 13:05 the other one at 22:50
>>
I used to make that journey a few times a month and I usually took the Eurobus which leaves Krakow at night and arrives in Budapest at around 6-7am. It usually cost me around 14 euros.

Going to Lisbon for 2 weeks next month. Any advice for what to do over there e.g things to see, place to go, good places to eat and drink at etc. Also is there any place near Lisbon which would be worth going to? Thanks.

I haven't been in the country for the past year but last time I checked it was like 24€. You can probably get a better price and faster tavel taking a Ryanair flight from Lisbon to Porto honestly.

Are you allowed to sleep in airports? I'm going to be transferring airports in Tokyo and have about 14 hours to kill. Was wondering if I could spend some time in the city, then head to the terminal at about midnight and just sleep in a chair until I have to get up for my 7am flight.

Yes. It's very, very common and I've done it on my first flights, too.

I'd recommend checking out the airport you're flying into on this website:
http://www.sleepinginairports.net/

The obvious things are to find a comfy bench that's not occupied in a well populated area, secure your valuables and don't oversleep for your flight in the morning. That's it really.

of course it is allowed

So I spend most of my time in Cambodia. I wish to go to Eastern Africa, or South Afrca, for a couple of months. Any tickets I see from Phnom Penh; Bangkok, HCMC to places like Kenya, are close to 800-900 Euro return

Are there any ways of getting to Africa from SEA that will cost me about 600 return, which is what I usually pay to get to SEA from Europe and then back.

I would consder any of these destinations: South Africa, Mocambique, Tanzania, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, Ethiopia.

Any reasonably priced options anywhere that I have overlooked?

Giving a partial answer to my own question here.

Funnily enough they are with Kenyan Airways, stop over in Nairobi, but getting a ticket BKK to Nairobi is more expensive.

Also, expect to lose years of your life if you set foot near Oxford Street, it is one of the most polluted places on earth.
