In my previous article on Singapore, I detailed the numerous drawbacks for the single dude to Singapore. Seen from that perspective, Singapore sounds terrible- high prices, gold diggers, fagbagsters, DAFFs, and retardation do not make a good single dude travel destination. But, in case you find yourself in Singapore for some reason beyond your control, don’t lose heart. You can make it work here if your skills are good and your bankroll is … [Read more]
Singapore, a tiny nation-state at the southern tip of Malaysia, is really on the rise these days. A haven for big banking and other big money businesses it is quickly, along with Hong Kong, turning into the economic powerhouse of Southeast Asia. Shit is happening there, skyscrapers are going up all over the place and people are immigrating from all over the region (and the world) to get in on the party.
With that in mind, I went to Singapore for an extended period this summer and I have a lot to say about it. There’s great party there and an enormous number of hot chicks, but despite those advantages Singapore is absolutely not a recommended single dude travel … [Read more]
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, known locally simply as “KL”, is a pretty strange place to think of for single dude travel. It’s definitely a weird place. It’s Asia, it’s infernally hot and humid all the time, it’s Muslim, and the people here are from a totally different part of the gene pool. If you come here expecting business as usual you’ll be in for a rude awakening, but if you just go with the flow it’s possible to have a lot of fun here.
First thing you need to keep in mind in KL is that Malaysia is a Muslim country. That is the source of a lot of the cultural issues and drawbacks of the place. 70% of the Malaysian … [Read more]
A famous and classic American party destination, New Orleans, the city of jambalaya, Hand Grenades, Mardi Gras, Emeril, the Saints, Louis Armstrong, and Bourbon Street took a huge hit in the tragedy 2005’s Hurricane Katrina. Boris and I made a brief visit there recently and are happy to announce that the party in New Orleans is still going strong. Amazing food, lots of live music, and plenty of heavy drinking make New Orleans a vacation destination worth visiting.
But, New Orleans is not a great single dude travel destination. High drink prices, stupid trashy locals, and the rise of hipsterism and douchebaggery have lowered the status of one of America’s former crown jewels to the back of the … [Read more]
Ok, so you’ve booked the ticket for your first trip to some place where the beer is cheap and the women are beautiful, nice and can’t wait to meet you. Now what? How do you get ready for the trip? What homework might pay dividends? How do you make sure you’re as ready as you can be?
First of all, save your goddamn money. If you’re like me and have to be in America or Western Europe for job reasons most of the time, going out to meet girls is pretty much a waste of time and definitely a waste of money. It’s just throwing your money and precious time away at late night clubs drinking $5-7 beers and … [Read more]
So now you’re abroad and are seeking adventure in the great wilderness filled with smart beautiful young professional girls in Mexico City. Great idea! Your flight just arrived and now that you’ve checked in to your hotel or apartment, you want to grab a drink and get to work meeting you next future ex-wife. Where to go first?
Now just like America, there are small minded provincial thinkers all over the world. They’re not interested in the rest of the world and how those people live, they don’t travel, and they certainly don’t want to meet American guys out on the prowl for exotic tail. It’s unfortunate because some of those … [Read more]
