My hometown is Toyama city in Jap. It's the most beautiful city in Jap.
What do you do for a living? Everyone living in the metro area ends up finding a job here in Bogota and commuting 2+ hours every goddamn day.

Have lived in many cities in Northwestern Europe but none are as awesome to live in as Ghent. I know i'll take my last breath here.

Calgary here as well. The city definately lacks "cultural events," especially if you live in the suburbs. For us suburban folk, it takes almost as much time to drive to the mountains as it does to get downtown for events. Probably why most people in the burbs just say fuckit and go skiing or hiking. Love my high paying job and low (by Canadian city standards) cost of housing though. The fact that the city is on avg 5 years younger than the general population of the country is a huge bonus too. Wouldnt move anywhere else.
I was born there as well. You still live there?
I am planning a morocco trip to some major cites like cassablanca, fez and marrakesh. Has any anon experience with this cities or morroco in general?
Is it a good travel destination and is it safe for two young western dudes?
How easy is to score prostitutes outside Marrakesh and Casablanca? Or is the trade non existant
How easy is it to score prostitutes in Marrakesh and Casablanca?
What about hostels or hotels are they easy to find?
Good food, beautiful nature and I also met nice locals which ones told m about their city and other stuff (gave me recommendations etc.).
The negative side might be the aggressive kind of being of the vendors, especially in the leather market. One time in Chefchaouen I had to raise my voice and it got a bit nasty after an annoying guy didnt stop following me, waited in front of my hostel, followed me again to sell weed. But after that he stopped. Most of morrocans are thin and not muscular, what made me feel a bit safer (beeing bigger).
I want to go back and visit the coast to do some surfing
have not been in that places. A guy I met in Fez has been in a brothel and enjoyed it. His host from airbnb recommendet it to him. I didnt see any prostitutes on the street. I think the brothels are kind of hidden.
Easy to find in the internet or simply while walking through the streets. Also many places are listed in airbnb
take the train whenever you can, buses have unreliable schedules. They will always be late, sometimes a good couple of hours.
Hey guys, I am from Australia and have some holidays coming up.
I have been going through a really rough time lately and honestly all I want to do is fly to anywhere in South East Asia for a couple weeks and have sex with prostitutes and party. Please don't judge.
What are the best cities to fly into for this? What hotels/ backpackers should I stay in and how do it book them? I would like to do this as cheaply as possible, I will probably just bring a big backpack. I don't mind staying places not so nice.
How do I go about hiring said prostitutes/using drugs without getting arrested/robbed? Should I hire a tour guide to do this for me?
I have never been on a holiday before by myself, although i am street smart. What should I be looking out for?
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Are you kidding me? Japanese women are some of the most ugly creatures on earth.
Chinese women usually have a better attitude, fashion sense and a curvier body. I dislike asian women in general but I at least find Chinese women I actually met in China attractive from time to time. Sure I think some Japanese porn actresses are attractive but actual Japanese women you meet in Japan look like science experiments.
This is absolutely false. You've obviously never been to Japan. Fashion in the country areas can be hit or miss in Japan (still better than a lot of places in the US), but the women in the cities in Japan are easily the best dressed in all of Asia. Chinese girls occasionally have bigger tits, but Japanese women look way better overall. After traveling enough I firmly believe that women who grow up atleast middle class, don't have to do physical labor, and don't become ham planets as a child tend to look decent. China is just barely starting to have this be true, and its been true about Japan for multiple generations now.
Attitude is hit or miss with either but a decent looking well put together Chinese girl is more likely to be a new money snob than a fashionable Japanese girl that grew up middle class, since its simply common to care more about fashion in Japan.
Not to mention Chinese fashion tends to be slapping together a bunch of gaudy expensive designer brands together and calling it fashion as opposed to actually being fashionable
Has anyone been to Hat Yai? I have heard its not great for tourists. What is there to do there?
As with attitude with prostitution

*Info on prostitution*
Please try to refrain from asking questions about prostitution.
Japan's sex industry is almost completely inaccessible to foreigners who do not speak Japanese. What is available can generally be found in the following links
http://rockitrisingsun.com/ > http://hentaitokyo.com/
Note that most of these companies are owned by the same group so behave.
*Note about the JR Pass*
Many people ask about whether or not the JR Rail Pass is worth it. It depends on your itinerary.
Plug your itinerary into Hyperdia to determine ticket costs, then compare to the below JR Pass options:
>7 day Pass: 29,110¥
>14 day Pass: 46,390¥
>21 day Pass: 59,350¥

Not that guy, but where in Osaka? When I went my friends and I were wandering the streets at 1am and kept getting harassed by Africans to go into their clubs. I never felt unsafe though, it was just annoying
on NYE like the other anon said show up as mother fucking early as you can. There is a bar across the street which is nice to drink at
Airin and in general Nishinari-ku.
Foreigners usually don't get targeted, though, because the local criminals know that if the embassy leans on the police, the case will likely get solved.
What are your rules of travel?
1. Don't travel with couples
2. Don't travel with lazy people
Never wear shorts
Lost few battles to win the war.
I was a firm believer in that philosophy myself, then I went to Taiwan. God-damn that place was hot, even in October.
>>1337090 >Never wear shorts
I went on holiday to Spain with a friend from Finland a few years ago. He wore these bright t-shirts and cargo shorts everyday. He looked like a 10 year old.
So... Women that act like guys?
What's the easiest way to take weed on an international flight?
In Europe you would probably get some jail time depending on the amount. And Europe has the most lenient punishments in the world, in some countries that is worth the death penalty.
Coca leaves are also legal to import in Europe. You may get some raised eyebrows, but they can't and shouldn't do anything to you. I once had a Bolivian bring me coca once.
coca leaves /=/ cocaine
Met a guy whilst diving who carried spliffs inside of empty click pens.
Tbh it ain't really worth it man, wherever you're going there will be something that will make you happy or relaxed, doesn't have to be weed. Could just be enjoying your trip!
Put it in your pocket. They don't drug sniff passengers.
What can I do in the Philippines (Luzon) that do not involve drinking, drugs, prostitutes, or gambling? I want a wholesome experience. Any advice in general for visiting?
Can you list the top 5 places you recommend in Luzon?
Also, how safe is the food? Can you eat anywhere or do you have to look for more expensive/western-looking places? That's the thing I'm most worried about the Philippines to be honest.
and I can't say for sure, but I think the islands are the nicer places in the Philippines. If you are in Manila though, let me know. I just arrived and don't know anyone, I'd be down for a beer.
In general I recommend looking where local workers eat for lunch and going there too. Will be cheap and tasty and safe to eat, but probably outside of tourist areas. If you have a longer travel or tour the next day, eat safely. Did that in Vietnam and never had any problems, ate for about 4€ a day + 1 for coffee.
>>1336795 >Can you list the top 5 places you recommend in Luzon?
Baguio, Subic, Clark, Batangas, Palawan
>Also, how safe is the food? Can you eat anywhere or do you have to look for more expensive/western-looking places?
Food here is safe. I've eaten some of the street food (ex. Balut, Kikiam.etc) and didn't even get sick. You can eat anywhere here in the Philippines, food is clean and well-prepared. However if you want to eat at the more expensive/western places, I suggest you to go the malls in Makati like Glorietta, Greenbelt, etc.
Good tips, thanks. I've had some bad experiences with bad/dirty food at restaurants in my own country (Brazil) and I was afraid Filipinos would be just as careless.
I'm 25, from the US, $40,000 in student debt and the last of my family (my mother) just died. I hate my life and would like to start anew, rather than kill myself.
I'd like to travel to an English speaking nation somewhere in Europe and attempt to build a new life. Any suggestions on countries that would take me in, and how difficult would it be getting a work VISA and finding a job as an expat. I have no connections abroad and would be starting from scratch. I have a liberal arts degree and teaching seems like something I could do.
I have good credit so I have about 10k to work with before I leave that debt behind as well.
Have you considered Australia? Straight up immigration is going to be really hard but there's a big wave of bridging visa types. Basically you chain whole bunch of visas together (working holiday then student then bridging then student etc etc) until you reach the requirement for permanent residency. I'm Australian so I never needed the details but I have friends who have done it. Just a very expensive and long complicated process. If you work hard in any capacity, you can cover the fees with savings from working. The student visa will be rough tho since you can only work for 20 hours a week. Definitely not enough to live and pay for fake schooling. A dodgy cash in hand job will cover that tho
Malta is an English-speaking country only in theory.
Sure, it's technically an official language, signs are in English and so on, but you'll find that barely anyone actually speaks it a native level. Most people aren't any better than your run of the mill Dutch or Nordics. It's Maltese that's in daily use.
You don't need to build a new life in a new country, OP.
You need to see a careers counselor.
Do you think you're the only directionless 20-something who is unsatisfied with his life and his job? A careers counselor will help you think through your technical and generic skills and help you focus on what might be a rewarding line of work for you to pursue.
And whatever you do, don't listen to the negative bullying from the angry and desperately insecure trolls on 4chan who will find any opportunity to mock someone to make themselves feel better.
Nah OP don't listen to these posers, keep running from your debt and problems. When you do move to a country and fuck up in less than a year accumulating more debt that you left in america hop to another country over and over again.
>>1335304 >I have a liberal arts degree >$40,000 in student debt
I really really want to call you a dumb fucking cunt that brought it upon yourself but I feel bad about your mother so I'll take a pass for this one
I felt the same way you do. I dropped out of college because my scholarship ended and I wasn't about to pay $30,000/yr for school and I was fed up with living with my parents and in America and I just generally hated life. So I sold my car, packed up everything I could fit into two suitcases, and moved to Germany. It was the best 3 months of my life followed by the most miserable 21 months of my life before I eventually ran out of money and options and had to return home.
Moral of the story: don't move abroad with no plans and do as you go. It's a bad idea and is how you run out of money.
Traveling to Paris for 4 days completely alone, apart from seeing all the touristy things (Eiffel tower, Louvre, Triumphal Arch, etc.) I need to see – I'm wondering if you guys got any hidden gems worth visiting; regardless if it's places to eat, drink, shop, see, etc.
Second mission and probably better for the locals or residents of France. I'm a kissless virgin female Swede and I plan to loose my virginity on this trip. How do I score myself a French lover or at least an equally lonely and desperate tourist? Can I just go to bar, order a drink, take a seat and hope for the best? Chances of me actually taking the step to hit on someone is slim because I'm introverted, submissive and shy. Should I try Tinder? Should I just post my hotel details on /soc/ and hope the 4chan Frenchmen come to my rescue?
let's keep bumping this thread till February so we can ask OP what happened
OP if you are still here, I'm this guy
I like to have a drink with you or maybe just walk and talk, this is a burn mail I just did if you are still interested: temptrash (at) protonmail (point) com
Not gonna lie this is the ugliest "2" I've ever seen in my life.
Also, not OP but where do you come from?
Yes I 'm not proud of the 2 at all. Also I'm from latin america
Fellow Latino here, I'll be doing France next year for a few days, is the offer still up for a boy? (not gay btw, all I want is to meet new people and someone to show me around/grab a beer with).
Has anyone ever done 'dark tourism?' What's the most undesirable place you've been?
What is "dark tourism"?
I've been to some terrible shitholes, although always passing through to somewhere nice. The worst: >Belize City >Colon, Panama >Northwestern Peru (terrible nearly in its entirety) >Puno >Haiphong >rural Mekong delta >Maputo/Beira/Nampula >ghetto in Durban and Joburg >Detroit/Cleveland/Buffalo >Appalachia >Salton Sea / Slab City >Tijuana Colon is definitely the worst. I think I'd have to go to Mogadishu to top that.
That actually sounds plausible. Fair enough, man. Carry on.
Puno? Touristic place, are you sure it was Puno?! Have been there to see the famous floating islands in the titicaca lake.
Northwestern Peru, you dont mean coastside, do you?!
Yeah in retrospect it's not as bad as the others listed, but I hate the Alta Plano in general, and being in a dirty city up there is just bleakness squared. El Alto also sucks for this reason, as does Oruru. I actually like the dirty third world when the weather is nice (as it usually is); when it's also cold it's pure misery.
