LA sucks although there is some good food
>>
>>1097706
The Los Angeles area has good areas and bad areas. Tourist-wise, the best attractions are themed attractions like Disneyland, Universal Studios, etc. Other good ones are Knott's Berry Farm and Six Flags Magic Mountain. The studio tour at the Warner Bros. Studio is suppsoed to be very good, and I have ehar that walking the Hollywood Walk of Fame is intensely boring and a waste of time.

What's so great about LA to you? Also, what would you miss in Ireland?

Does anyone have any experience on booking transport on freighters and other non-cruise ships?

I kindof want to just drift around the Pacific for a bit. I also have a strange desire to be on the bow of a ship in high seas but I doubt that's something you can really plan as a trip.

Have you tried Google? This question comes up from time to time here, usually posed by somebody who thinks it will be a cheap way to travel. (It is not it generally costs more than air travel for a given route.) But many cargo ships have a stateroom or two for passengers that can be "rented," and last time this came up there were a couple of sites for booking them that came up on Google.

I don't know why someone would want to do this other than to sound cool.

It's more expensive than a cruise ship, takes a lot longer than just flying, it's generally pretty boring at sea for that long with no duties to perform.

If you want to go out into the sea on a ship and have an interesting experience, I'd look into research vessels and seeing if you can volunteer or pay to be part of their crew for a voyage.

Hi /trv/

So I will have a small 4 days vacation in April. I'd like to go somewhere in Europe.
I am not a partygoer, I never hang out at night so I don't care about nightlife. I mostly want to visit for history and museums. I also like nature (especially birdwatching) but I don't think 4 days are enough.
I was thinking about Stockholm or Helsinki, but I wonder if it's the best to keep these two once I have enough time so I can drive around?

What's the best place to go for 4 days?

I will exclude these European cities because...

Thinking about going to Singapore for a week (or two?) in June. What would I be getting myself into? I'm primarily interested in exploring new cities, photography, and culture. Don't know fuckall about Singapore aside from "don't break the local laws or you'll get your ass caned in front of the whole world."

Honestly, that's way too long.
There is little culture in Singapore aside from consumerism and materialism. Sure, they have various museums and such, but it's a fabricated culture with little cohesion.

Use Singapore as a base, where you can travel to other SEA nations from.
You'll be fine with 3-4 days in Singapore total, it's tiny, expensive and as mentioned above, not a whole lot to see or do except look at buildings or gambling perhaps.

Maybe I'm tainted, lived here for 20 years, currently in bangkok to escape and recharge.

Don't go any longer than a week.

One day in little India.
One day in and around MBS.
Apart from that, the malls would be awesome for abstract photography.
Hawker centres for street.

I know I know it sounds childish and all. But sometimes playing a few games while waiting for your flight, at the hostel or just at a cafe just feels good. Certain games work very well when travelling. Some games actually bring lots of people together and bond. So which games you guys play when travelling?
I usually play cards. The game gin is nice and quick yet not too random.

Hi OP,

Can Pastilla is at the end of the long boulevard, so basically the beach ends there and there's a marina. If I were you I would go a bit more to the east side of the boulevard, but not too far (El Arenal is rather shitty). Also mind that the part near Mega Park is entirely german tourists oriented.

anyway, I'll let you know a few things I've learned from visiting. Firstly, to get a decent view of the city you don't have to pay a load of money to go up the empire state building, the world trade center, or the rock. In fact, I would never recommend going up the empire state building, cause then you wont see the empire state building. Of the three I would say the Rockefeller tower is the best, cause you are pretty much in the middle, you can see central park, the financial district, the esb, and pretty...

So I'm thinking of planning a trip around the country with an Amtrak USA rail pass for next year. They cost a little under $500 and are good for 8 different segments over a period of up to 15 days.

Does anyone have any experience specifically with a USA rail pass? Apparently they are only good for coach seats, so it certainly wouldn't be ideal, but 8 segments could possibly get me to Cleveland, DC, New Orleans, San Antonio, Los Angeles, Emeryville (near Oakland I guess) and Chicago, plus all the sights to see along the way - All for $500 (for...

Well, OP, amtrak has some more luxurious and scenic routes, such as the commuter rails of the northeast, the silver zephyr, VA to FL autotrain, and so on. Think about train travel (and the location of stations) being about the lousiest place in town crimewise maybe the same tier as Greyhound in lots of stations, and that you will want some money to get around and sightsee, like a taxi from this shit part of town. If this budget of $500 is the only real selling point, consider that I took American round trip from Miami-Chicago...

The money isn't really the selling point, I really wanna see the country up close. I never did it before because the roomettes are so expensive and I wasn't sure if I wanted to spend big money to only see a little bit. The idea of going to various parts of the country and seeing everything in between makes the trip sound more appealing.

The main routes i had in mind were the california zephyr and coast starlight (from LA to emryville mostly), but I also wouldn't mind seeing the capital and travelling...

It's fucking embarrassing and cringe worthy, isn't it? Will your internet friends not believe that you've traveled somewhere unless you have photographic evidence?

In the Vatican, moronic tourists would spend two seconds looking at a piece of art that probably took decades to finish, snap a selfie, and then move on to the next one so they could get to McDonalds before closing time. No appreciation of what they were looking at whatsoever. Why bother traveling in that case?
