Ok guys, so the university I attend has great exchange programs, and I was wondering which place is better to stay for a longer time (around 1 year I suppose? Maybe 2) Seoul or Tokyo? Have you been to any of the places? Please share you experiences! (By the way, I would study Korean/Japanese in this period)
Hey /trv/, I want to move to Italy. I know the language proficient around to get around alone just fine. I know the culture, how the regions hate each other but only unite as a whole during football games, shit economy, etc. My question is, would the last part matter so much if I want to start my own food business over there? I am aware that Italians love kebab.
Yes I know /biz/ is a thing, but they just shitpost all the time. Thanks in advance
In venice the government is trying to limit foreign food chains. They want to promote italian food instead.
You can do it somewhere else tho.
Biggest problem is corruption and a confussing badly constructed business system.
>In venice the government is trying to limit foreign food chains. They want to promote italian food instead.
Right. Florence is doing that as well.
Please, OP, no more kebab in Italy. We like it but we know where to go if we want kebab.
Recommendations for a solo traveler who wants to spend New Years abroad?
Thinking of booking a family holiday to Croatia for 20+ people. Anybody know any good villas or complex rentals? Also what is the cost of food and booze and general living in Croatia?
I work as a software dev and recently came across the opportunity to work remotely. I would like to move out of the UK and live somewhere in Europe. My budget is $2500 a month but I'l like to keep it to $2000.
What cities would you suggest? Here is what I would prefer:
>fast internet (required)
>relatively cheap (so not as expensive as cities as London)
>lots of stuff to do
>big bonus if near the beach
I've been looking at nomadlist.com and got Tenerife and Las Palmas in the Canary Islands as suggestions. Jeju Island was another suggestion if I want to move out of Europe.
Spain sounds perfect as the language is simple and it has a lot to do. Barcelona seems cool too.
Any remote workers that can offer tips or suggestions?
I dont know about the Islands, but mainland Spain has some god awful internet connections
T: Expat, been living in Malaga, Valencia & Cadiz. Maybe Barcelona and Madrid might have decent connections,but elsewhere I have seen grossly overpriced and very slow connections for today's standards. I paid 40€ per month for the shit and download speed was 300 kb/s at MAX
Spain really has horrible internet speed, same goes for Italy.
Romania has quite decent speeds here and there, has some beaches, nice mountains.
I would just go with the Netherlands desu. Shuttling between Haarlem and Zandvoort aan Zee.

Im gonna be spending 2 days in Copenhagen next month. What places should I visit, food and drinks I should try? Tripadvisor only shows boring ass museums.
Me: 30yo guy from Roskilde DK.
Why are you visiting? where are you from? age? budget? Social of antisocial?
Find a one night stand/ find a non-serious drunk GF?
See 1800-1900 culture?
See 800-1100 culture?
See small artificial important cultural landmarks?
See large architectural achievements?
See non-western ghettos?
The best thing about Denmark is the people, not oure material achievements. Danes are less cucked than germans and sweden-hens.
I'm a 22 year old male from Scotland.
Will be spending holidays with my longtime girlfriend.
Visiting because I've never been to Denmark.
Budget is not an issue. Obviously no yacht or limo rentals.
I mostly wanna meet people, taste good beers and food. Also interested in landmarks but no museums. Could be unique architecture or seaside view.
Post OC content only so people can't cheat.
Look for clues such as vegetation, architectural styles, and geology.
This September, I’m road tripping from Minneapolis to the Gorge Amphitheater in Washington State. Along the way, I’d like to take some time to enjoy some magnificent scenery in Montana, and possibly Idaho.
I’ll be renting a car in Mpls, and dropping it off in Seattle after the music thing. From there, I’m flying home. I may or may not bring camping gear, depending on what I decide and possibly, the advice I get here. If I don’t bring camping gear, I’ll just shell out for lodges and what not.
So, where would you stop. Would I be a fool to camp, or a fool to not camp? Specific hotels/motels/lodges/campgrounds that are not to be missed? If you have educated opinions, please sound off! Thank you.
As for time, I can hit the road as early as Saturday, September 9th. I have to be at the gorge on the Saturday the 16th for the event and am flying home on Monday, the 18th.
Apologies for the lengthy post.
I've never been to either but what I can say is just keep a low profile. I know people who've went (to to glacier national park and other forests). People from those area like not having to deal with tourists.
Also I know Yellowstone does have areas in Montana and Idaho
There's So Many Places to Go Edition
I found this on (You)Tube:
I might post some interesting train routes later this week. I'd like some feedback on them. They're based on the Yellow River, Yangtze River and the Pearl River, respectively.
Better to go to Taiwan instead
>people are civilised and polite and don't spit/piss/shit on the street

>Chineseness has not been permanently ruined and perverted by communism
Would you rather travel from Vienna to Prague via train, or just fly?
Also Austria and Czech general thread.
/bkkg/ Bangkok general
>What are your plans for this weekend?
>Any recommended places (clubs&bars) to go at night?
>Where do you usually get your thai girls?
>Have you ever fucked any farang girl? Where do you get them?
Experiences are welcome
>Is dehli belly (travelers diarrhea) really unavoidable in India?
I've traveled to many third world countries and has zero problems with this, However people make it out to be unavoidable in India.
It is avoidable. Just don't eat anywhere that is quiet, because the curry sits there for hours and bad bacteria grows. If you go somewhere thats busy the curry is constantly being freshly made so its hot and therefore safe.
When i was there I met a girl that had been there for 7 months and had yet to get delhi belly. I fell kill after 3 weeks and it took me out for a couple of days.
India is just uniquely filithy and it is very common for travellers to fall ill at some point.
Tell me your best/worst stories about the people you guys have met in hostels
I don't have stories, but I thought of two people... There was this woman from Xi'an in a Shenzhen hostel who could not even say hi in English, still flooded me with very useful information, took me out for meals, and was genuinely curious about where I was from. (I feel sorry for all the random others whom she basically kidnapped to be our translators. lol) She was just unstoppable and infinitely kind.
And then there's the Maori guy who ended up in a smaller Berlin dorm with me... That snore shook the whole room, and it was a sturdy one. He was constantly sleeping and snoring loud as hell. The sight was interesing, too, he totally filled up a bottom bed, his stomach was so large that it looked like as if it was about to touch the upper bed with each snore. My earplugs were of no use, and I didn't have noise cancelling headphones.
I think I'm quite lucky when it comes to hostels.
No truly terrible experiences with travelers but I'd avoid snuffel hostel in bruges if you arent a hardcore smoker / partier.
If you arent a tobacco smoker or don't enjoy the fragrance of dozens of chainsmoking 20-somethings smoking cigarettes in their rooms / courtyard it isn't a big deal. Rooms arent ventilated at all though so smoke stinks up the rooms and all of your belongings etc.
I got high with a russian / brit in amsterdam that I met from a hostel there though and had a pretty good time. Most travelers are quite nice.
Has /trv/ been to Johannesburg? I've been trying to verify what's claimed in pic related and I'm having a hard time, can anyone here weigh in?
Thanks for the story, my aunt is a white woman from SA. She and my uncle go there every few months, but they live in a gated community. I'd like to go there as an european individual solo tourist, is it even possible to come back home alive?
