Hey /trv/

Me and my gf are planning on a 5 day trip to Transylvania.
On day 1 We're landing in Bucharest.
On day 2 We're taking a train to Brasov early in the morning. We plan to take a taxi to see bran castle and sinaia
On day 3 we're gonna take a train to sighisoara.
We might take a train the day after to Sibiu if We have time, if not back to Bucharest.

How does this plan seem?
Any tips and suggestions?

Thanks in advance

been there a couple of weeks ago, so here goes.

I've heard there are excursions to see both Bran and Sianaia castles in a day. But all the people I met were evaluating the Bran castle as "meh" at most. And SInaia seems more like a posh summer retreat than a castle to me. So I didn't go there. I enjoyed both Brasov and Sighisoara, doing the latter as a day trip from the former. Both are nice medieval towns. More stuff to see in Brasov.

Also, there are things to see in Bucharest for like half a day. Whole day if you want to see inside the Parliament...

I have a flight out of Bucharest at like 9AM so I'm hoping to take a bus from Brasov to Bucharest early in the morn to get my flight.

Thanks mate!

By the way, what's the best way to get to sighisoara from Brasov? Is it taxi, train or bus?

My girlfriend and I are doing 19 nights in Europe this May. Most of the travel will be by plane but some by train/bus. Is 3 nights in a city the right amount of time for a trip? 2 feels like we would be leaving as soon as we got there, and 4 feels too long.

I would like to see Dublin, London, Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Rome, Florence, Venice, some of the italian cost (Pic related) and Barcelona. Could we reasonably do each of these cities in two days WITH travel time?

No.

Every one of those cities has lots to do in them, you could spend a week in each to do them slowly, maybe three days WITHOUT travel time to do them comfortably. You'd probably still be a bit rushed running around.

Two days in Paris including travel time? You'd barely...

My friend wants me to plan a trip for me and him to "a god forsaken third world shithole" this January. Now third-world shitholes are my preferred areas to visit which is why he is wanting me to do the planning (he has only ever visited Europe) however the largest problem I am running into is time constraints. We are only going to have around 10-11 days total to visit where we are going so it limits us greatly.

Alright /trv/ I'm going to Myanmar the 1st of April as the start of a short SEA trip (2,5 months). Planning to spend 3-4 weeks in Myanmar, and travelling with qt 3.14 GF.

What I'm tripping balls over is the government taxes on guesthouses, hotels etc. Each overnight seems to be 20 USD+, and this will seriously fuck up the budget we've planned - or atleast take a serious toll on it.

Any tips on how to avoid staying in overpriced guesthouses?

Hi /trv/,
Any great restaurants and bars to check out in Vancouver? Going there with a friend for a week. We wanted to check out the suspension bridge, is it really $36 admission to get on it?
How is Gastown? Any cool places to check out there? Someone told us to check out the Narrow Lounge on main street and it looks awesome - any kind of hidden gems like that would be cool to know. Thanks in advance!

Suspension Bridge is a stupid touristy waste of time, don't bother. Vancouvertrails has way more interesting stuff, much of it that you'd have to yourself.

Gastown's touristy but has lots of good eateries too. Six Acres and Alibi Room are great places to start your night/grab dinner. Nelson the Seagull is great too for lunch, though that's Downtown Eastside which is a grungy but gentrifying neighbourhood nearby.

Narrow Lounge is cool, as is Main Street generally. Also consider checking out Locus and, if you're into veg stuff, Acorn has...

What sort of food do you like and what's your budget? Vancouver has mediocre food for the most part except for Asian food. Having said that, I'd say Vancouver has some of the best cheap sushi (under $15) in the world. There are a lot of good Chinese restaurants, noodle shops and dim sum all over the place.

As for the bridge fee, yeah it's a tourist trap kind of place. I go there when someone visits me. But there's another suspension bridge not too far away from that one that's free....

Locals own cars. Rent a car. It's really the only way around Houston safely (and comfortably in the heat). It's a huge sprawling city, with the kind of violent crime that kills you for your Rolex. You avoid that by not being on foot, ever.

Buy some authentic, or even better, some custom cowboy boots to last you a lifetime, such as:

They have the old part of town called the Strand, which has tons of restaurants and bars housed in old brick buildings.

They also have the recently-opened Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier, and their one steel coaster is legit. It's run by Landry's...

Nothing to do about dengue but avoid mosquito bites, anyway. But if you get it, yes, you will regret it. Good friend of mine got it in Chiang Mai a few years ago, and she was bedridden and miserable for at least two weeks. We were working there at the time, so it was less trouble for us than it might have been for a backpacker, but two weeks when you can't get out of bed would wreck many trips.

I advocate caution w regard to Japanese encephalitis, too, despite the fact that I lived there for years without...

Vienna is great for several days of sightseeing palaces, museum content, and great shopping and food. If by "history" you mean medieval intact buildings stuff you can't get much better than war-protected Prague, but you should stop somewhere inbetween the two cities or take a day trip out of either.
Ex. Melk or Salzburg, Austria, or Cesky Krumlov or Karlovy Vary, Czech Rep or maybe even Dresden, Germany.

Not many hostels in NYC. It's not a hostel city. There are three airports so you have a choice. Newark is the closet to midtown Manhattan. Airbnb rentals are illegal here though they are listed on the site. Most vendors sell food:hot dog carts,food trucks,halal(Muslim kosher)food. They are all over Manhattan. Get a Metrocard to use on the subways and bus. Don't even think of renting a car here. Go to mta.info for transit information.

If your hostel is Jazz - it is an excellent choice, congratulations.

The best way to get from LGA to Jazz is Uber. Or if you can't get Ube, get a yellow cab. Don't take unlicenced cabs, they're dangerous.

The second best is to take Q60 SBS bus from LGA to 125 St and then change to another bus headed downtown. It will only cost $2.75, and will be just slightly slower than Uber. However NYC bus and luggage don't mix well.

Street vendors are all over town... but most of them aim to rip off tourists and aren't really a good deal. UWS...

Hey guys,

I'm overthinking my plans for the trip around the world I'm planning. There are two ways I could go:
1. New Zealand -> Fiji -> Vancouver -> New York -> Reykjavik -> Frankfurt
2. New Zealand -> French-Polynesia -> Lima/Santiago/somewhere in the Amazonas region -> Frankfurt

I'll fly in Mai or June next year and the second option would cost about 1000-1500$ more than the first option. The thing is, I REALLY would like to see either the Andes or Amazonia. Also, I'd rather go to French-Polynesia than Fiji....
