  • I stayed in Pokhara for a few months and it is a friendly place with a good music scene. there are plenty of amazing trekking opportunities around in the Himalayas. the people are very friendly and it’s easy to make friends. Lots of travelers here are smoking weed, it seems to be pretty legal here. internet speeds are good (probably 15 up and down on average but I stayed in one place that was hitting 30) but power cuts are frequent in the summer (monsoon) months. Many hotels, guest houses, airbn

  • Kathmandu has frequent power outages as of December 2019 even though everyone says otherwise, as does Pokhara. The old outages are referring to the load shedding issue which were routine power outages for the majority of the day. Now power outages are not routine and can last unknown amounts of time, even the main (and only) airport loses power often. Buildings are unheated, water for showering is generally unheated or lukewarm, many houses get their water from urban aquifers which may be hea

  • City was cheap and pretty but there’s not that many cafes to work from, plenty of tourists and it was hard to make friends. If you go here make sure to rent a motorbike and check out the nature but there are better places to live at in Vietnam.

  • Have been in Weligama since Feb 25th and now I’m still here with the COVID-19 curfew going on. Before the curfew starts I was eager to get out of here because 1) it’s too hot mid-day 2) tuktuk drivers are waiting around every corner asking «tuktuk?» and always horn at you when you’re walking by the street — super annoying and 3) it’s difficult to find workable wifi 4) everything just seemed super slow and it was hard to be productive.
    But after the curfew starts I actually like it way better be

  • Lombok definitely has the most amazing virgin beaches , waterfall, and marine life! Senggigi is just one of its many long white sand beaches and a lot of them are still waiting to be discovered. Not much of a party going on here, but if you are itching for one, just hope to a speed boat for 15 minutes and you will arrive in the wild gili trawangan. I was only staying for 4 days, then I fell in love . Been here for 6 months and counting.

  • It’s a beautiful small city with nice parks.
    The population is somewhat used to foreigners since there are many humanitarian agencies with offices in the city. Nevertheless, basically no one speaks English.
    There is a large mall with several options to eat and work.
    I’ve spent days in local cafes without issue although cafe owners were clearly surprised by this behaviour.
    Regarding activities, they are constrained to the touristic, such as museums, and hamams (saunas).
    I’ve heard that ther

  • Stayed a whole month in Fort Kochi area, eventually going to Ernakulam (downtown area). It is unarguably very different than rest of India, much more cleaner and with friendlier people. Beaches aren`t nice for bathing but are a great choice to catch sunsets everyday. Cost of living is dirty cheap and public transport is good. They even have a subway crossing the city with reminds me the BTS in Bangkok. Actually, Kochi to me is like a small and boring version of Bangkok, which is good if you need
