I've got about 10 days (including flight time from Central Europe) to spend in Asia this August. I've been to basically all East Asian countries and I might have the chance to work in South-East Asia in one year's time, so I'm not going to go there now even if I haven't been there so far. Since I'm mostly interested in cities and like multicultural places, I've decided to go to Singapore.
However, since 10 days is probably too much for Singapore, I thought about combining it with Jakarta and spending about 4-5 days in each of these cities. Kuala Lumpur is not an option because I have been there already.
Do think it's a good plan? Many people have told me that Jakarta is pretty crappy, but I would have gone there anyway one day, so I guess it just makes sense to do it now that I'm going to Singapore.

Hello guys, me and my two friends are going to travel a little bit on the east of the us this summer. We have a little more than two weeks and thought about going south from new york to miami and then back but by a different route. It's our first time in the us and we would really appreciate if you tell us about a few things:
1. Are there any places that you would recommend us to visit on the way?
2. Is renting a car a good option as, from what I hear, hitchhiking is illegal in america? or maybe some chaep buses? basically, what do you think is the best way to travel there?
3. Or maybe, do you think we should choose a different route and visit different places?
also, general useful info about travelling in the us

I'm off the Paris for the Airshow next month, driving down from northern England with a friend, having two full days in Paris and then spending a day at the show (not my kinda thing but I figured why not).
So yeah, two full days, I imagine we'll spend one by getting up at 7am and trying to see all the touristy bits (my friend's never been). Any lesser known recommendations? I'm not a massive fan of the place compared to other European capitals, though my memory is blurred. Any particular restaurants/bars you enjoyed too? I know generally finding the cheapest one near a hostel is an idea.
On an unrelated note, I must apologise for the /trv/ team's knockout in the Spring Cup. At least we're in Summer with the big boys again!

hi everyone, i'm going to Amsterdam for a couple of weeks at the end of June
i've been overseas twice before, both times to Tokyo, including Hong Kong and Macau on my second trip - i enjoyed both holidays, and love Japan and basically i'm wondering what i can expect from Amsterdam
i'm traveling with friends, and i like to drink, and i don't have any reservations when it comes to drug use, although like anyone i'd prefer not to get myself hurt, arrested, or left destitute
are coffee houses open to tourists? how possible is it get ahold of mushrooms and whatnot? are people kind? is accommodation cheap?
anything you can think to tell me, i'd appreciate - if it comes to your mind, please bring it to my mind

I'm interested in what you tastes in traveling are, /trv/.
Suppose you had a guaranteed $250 budget for every week, maybe more if one week spills over into the next, but no less, and for any number of weeks. Where would you go and what would you do, not counting the initial plane ticket?

I'm going to Rome for a week with the gf in September, we're going 11th to the 18th, 7 nights. Staying in a hostel called Bel Horizon, looks pretty good and it was fairly cheap (~£25/night) from what I could see on hostelcomparison sites.
Anyway the question is, what are some good things to do in Rome? What will the weather be like? I've checked out some weather predictions, but I'd like to get some info from anyone who has already been.
Is public transport fairly decent? We plan to go to Pompei too, to see shit and stuff, its a fairly touristy, indulgent holiday as we're both finished uni and my folks gave me some money to take her away, so why not!
Also as this is my first independant holiday, is it possible to live for a week out of a backpack? I'm only taking what I can fit into the one bag because I just cant be stuffed taking an extra massive bag to carry around.
