I'm a Canadian, and I'm looking for somewhere hot to travel in in April. I have about 7k saved up, and I'm am thinking about just taking a week trip down to a Cuban resort, but I'm unemployed and a longer excursion is an option. what are some good travel destinations in the hot part of the world? preferably South America.

As I'm sure you know, you can find all-inclusive package vacations (flight included) for under $1000 easily in Cuba. Probably shouldn't expect much though. Shit food, a pervading feeling of 'fake' everywhere. Dominican Republic is equally popular for sun'n'sand vacations.
Jamaica is a little more interesting for independent travel (violent crime is concentrated in Kingston... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Hey /trv/, spring break is next week and I want to travel. I have 6k saved up and I have the option to either go to NY where relatives will pay for about half my trip but I've already been there or to new Orleans which I have never seen but ill be paying the full amount of the trip. what are the pros and cons of these places?
I'm going to spend a few days in LA in about 6-8 weeks. Not sure how many days yet but I would love to find someone to host me on couchsurfing. The hostels there are really expensive, as much as I'd love to stay in them.
As for food, I recently watched a docu about a food critic in LA, Jonathan Gold, and apparently his 101 best places to eat is a good list to start with. The one I'd like to try is Guelaguetza.
>>1093013 >hostels in the U.S. are literally the same price if not more expensive than a motel.
it may be worth getting a motel somewhere outside of the city with good access to transit (near the airport comes to mind) and taking the train or the bus into LA. the cheapest places are going to be the worst, obviously.
also try the Heji Guiyuan Inn, they are advertising $15 rooms on trivago.com >probably a scam but mfw dat price
>>1092987 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hamilton_Heights,_St._Louis >In 2010 Hamilton Heights' racial makeup was 97.4% Black, 1.0% White, 0.3% Native American, 0.1% Asian, and 1.2% Two or More Races. 0.5% of the population was of Hispanic or Latino origin.
>>1092887 Because it never costs as much as travel bureaus and exchange programmes would make you believe. You're adding yet another middleman trying to make a big buck to the equation and the itinerary he offers never goes for the cheapest options. Trips to exotic countries are especially bad since people just assume they must cost a fortune, which isn't true since a dollar goes a loooong way in a lot of them. Plan this shit out on your own, hunt for cheap flights, book hostel beds yourself and suddenly it's... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>1092887 This is at least the 3rd thread asking how we afford traveling that's still up on /trv/. It's a slow board, please look at other threads before posting your own questions.
The people here are most likely somewhat older than the average channer, work, save up, and use their saved money to travel. Others are really into this hobby and manage to do it on the cheap, there are certain ways to travel cheap, the main costs are transport, food and shelter and almost all 3 can be free if you want to go that route. Although it might not be comfortable.
Study abroad programs usually are not very cost efficient. It's a great opportunity to study in another culture for a short while but if you can't afford it I say wait until you're done with school. The less debt you have after you leave the better. One of the rules most people here have a strong view about is not to get into debt for travel, save first then travel.
>also how do I figure out how much my trip would cost without consulting a trip advisor.
>can i cut a line from krakow to budapest? Yes, go via Poprad and Banská Štiavnica and you'll pass through the High Tatrus national park. It's a common route from Krakow, I think you can do it cheaply by train. Then from Budapest city connections are easy.
I've done the route from Bratislava to Krakow once and the route through the Slovakian mountains was amazing. We stopped at Liptovsky Mikulas which is a town just off the route from Krakow to Budapest. Has a big waterpark too. Would definitely recommend doing that trip, all those cities are great
I'm an agent, only part-time- but even full time you won't make enough money to live but you will get lots of travel perks for yourself. Its an exciting career choice as long as you're not in it for the dough!
>>1092627 >Pic related. Them shits dont work. Memory foam ones suck. They're heavy, hard to pack in carry-ons, and just squish down on the sides, but not enough at the back of the neck, and they're too thick for lumbar support.
Get the self- inflatable ones. They do work. You adjust the pressure as your own individual necks needs. They give at the back of the neck just right, and yet keep your neck from flopping.
I like to bring a packable down vest or jacket, which makes my whole seat back more comfortable, and good if chilly too! Noise cancelling headphones are a must. I also travel with Crocs slides, because my feet swell now with pressured cabins now that I am old, especially if I drink a cocktail. They are also cleanable through TSA sock walks and gross floors in lavatories that are wet. 4 wheeled carryon saves the shoulders, neck, back and feet from long terminal activity.
I always have a hanging toiletry bag, which doesn't need counterspace, and quickly goes back and forth, if you are in a hotel room with someone else who hogs the bathroom a while.
I'm planning a trip to the US next year. Specifically, to NY, DC, and the Fort Knox area.
I'll be staying for about three weeks, and as much as I'd like to stay in a hotel for the duration, I've been told that can get quite expensive. I'll be traveling with a friend who doesn't mind sharing a room, and I'd prefer to avoid hostels if possible.
What are some good options for lower cost accomodation?
>>1092264 Sorry if I lived in one of those places I would help. If that's your Phantom and you are Japanese you could try for a military discount. Just have an ID and say you're a "NATO soldier" and most people will be too dumb to know the difference. Just don't do this around actual vets.
