There are two things that influence a lot, one is the expectations that you believe about a place for what you have been able to read or other travelers tell you and the other is the previous place, where you come from when you arrive. This, of course without forgetting personal tastes. Therefore, Southeast Asia surprised me very negatively, and instead the province of Xinjiang in China surprised me very pleasantly.
Do you need a high level of English to travel the world or with four words is enough?
It can even be worth without those 4 words, if you have other real communication resources. Sometimes I acted as if I didn't speak any English, and they have been memorable moments. It will probably be because my English is more than deficient, but after this long trip I have the feeling that it limits communication a lot, really, that of looking into each other's eyes, feeling, playing movies or pictionari.
In terms of quality of services / prices, anyone from southern Vietnam could be worth it. For 7 or 8 $ USA, you have a single room, with air conditioning (very necessary for these parts), little bathroom, cleaning things, and clean cleaning, that is, good, beautiful and cheap, what we Latinos like so much . As for the environment, I found the best in Ají Hostel, in Santiago, Chile, but, I have to say that I had been wanting to leave Asia and meet the Latin world, that is, the atmosphere of snowboarders, skiers, sat down very much. Spanish students and several travelers of first and second youth (or am I already in the third?), where the night party, more or less quiet, is assured. If we add to that the casual disposition, of both the owners and the staff, then we put the icing on it. Although it is more than likely that there are many others with good atmosphere. Personal circumstances influence a lot and it is more than difficult to be a little objective in these answers.In Pakistan without the slightest doubt. After Syria, I found the country with the most hospitable people, of the few countries I know.
Insecure for my physical integrity I have not felt anywhere. For the fear that something was stolen from me, identical everywhere, although I have to say that I arrived in Africa with the European chip and information, so maybe I had something more to repair and, consequently, care, especially when In principle, but not because of what is there, but because of what we believe in Spain that is there, it is neither more nor less dangerous than any other continent or country, even I would say that several African countries are less dangerous than Spain itself .
