I've also never had my bag weighed before security but I have had it weighed and charged by budget airlines in Europe either at the check in counter, or at the gate. It's actually pretty common if you have a rolling carryon that looks remotely heavy so I always just built it in as a hidden cost of flying these budget airlines...

They tried to do this to me at siem reap airport on airasia. I managed to look pissed off enough that they made me shuffle a few things then let me through.
Hey guys! Iโ€™m going to Krong Siem Reap the next week with my boyfriend, can anyone recommend a co-working space, a gym, and maybe a place to rent a bicycle or motorcycle? I will be very grateful!

Angkorhub used to be nice back in the day, pre-pandemic โ€” just check out if itโ€™s still open and running though - can ask around if you donโ€™t find anything - did know the owners and team there from before

you should ask in #cambodia

Tuk Tuks are super cheap and you can order them with Grab. Better than renting a moto IMO.

Hello! Any kitesurf spots close to digital nomad destinations you can think if in Asia? I know Boracay, Mui Ne and Hua Hin already and woud prefer smth new. Thanks!
Hey guys! Does anyone have lived in Seoul, South Korea, could recommend any kid-friendly places to visit? I mostly interested in cool and unusual activities for 7 y.o kid, kids-friendly co-working spaces, babysitters/nannies services.

I'm interested in Seoul advice too, travelling there with my gf in Dec

kwhlrqvlqvmvm jpasboxi recommend posting those questions to #south-korea :slightly_smiling_face:

I donโ€™t have much info on kids related stuff. But for anything else feel free to ping me. I spent a month there recently

xldswcqt - I was there for a week only in late September. I stayed in Gangnam-gu. It's a blast, tons of nightlife with clubs, restos, bars, etc

1 week wasn't enough to really get to know Seoul, so I plan to go back. For touristy stuff, the DMZ tour was really interesting

thanks for the advice

Hi everyone. Iโ€™m planning on doing some travelling through SE Asia (HK, Vietnam, Thailand) before ending up in Mauritius for a year on a premium visa. My question is, if Iโ€™m travelling through these countries whilst carrying professional video equipment on a tourist visa (with a carnet) am I likely to run into trouble even if itโ€™s just for use in Mauritius?

Hey all! After some time in Chiang Mai Iโ€™m finally ready to start moving towards the beach early in January. Iโ€™m curious on this communityโ€™s thoughts on the best beach locations in SEA, especially considering this time of the year - Jan ~ March :slightly_smiling_face:

Things that matter to me:
โ€ข Nice clean beach with lots of nature
โ€ข Remote work conditions - wifi, Coworking spaces
โ€ข Digital Nomad community (people who stay long term and work rather than more backpackers)
I have some places in mind. Would love to hear more:
โ€ข Hoi An, Vietnam
โ€ข Koh islands in Thailand
โ€ข Krabi
โ€ข Bali

sayb I just went through it and I didnโ€™t see any way to circumvent that checkpoint.

My flight is from an L gate, should I have gone through a gate of a different area, like K or J?
Doesnโ€™t appear like it would be able to cross after.

The checkpoint was two staff each with a scale. I was lucky and dodged the bullet super closely. The universe somehow arranged it that both agents were busy and communicating and I sneaked past very smoothly :smile:

But yeah, I wouldnโ€™t take chances next time. I have probably 10kg more than the 7kg allowed, so that would have been $125.

Why I think the risk is high? Because thereโ€™s very little staff at the whole terminal, everything is self-serve. And yet they man two scales. Clearly thatโ€™s a money grab worth staffing.

But Iโ€™ll try to avoid AirAsia in the future in general since it seems most flights are heavily delayed. They do that for โ€œcommercial reasonsโ€ and state so even on the boarding pass.
detour888 2mo
When I weighed mine, I barely put it on the scale whilst still holding it so probably shaved a few KGs just doing that ๐Ÿ˜†

I'd swap Hoi An for Da Nang. Hoi An is an insanely touristy little village. don't think there are any coworkings. also there is no beach in Hoi An. Da Nang is a decent city and just 30min motorbike ride from Hoi An
and Krabi for Phuket (Rawai) for similar reasons
Seconding swapping out Hoi An. Itโ€™s only worth visiting for 2-3 hours, itโ€™s almost entirely fake and constructed to appeal to tourists.

Hi all, I would really like to visit the Stans (Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan (when open)). Can anyone provide any insight into the internet situation in these countries? Would they be suitable to work from? And if so, would it just be in main cities or do smaller places also have a good connection? Thanks for any help ๐Ÿ˜Š
I think digital nomads generally start in Bishkek or Almaty, they have good internet and are relatively safe. Expect major language barrier issues if you donโ€™t speak any Russian. Also, best to call it Central Asia, many consider the term โ€œThe Stansโ€ to be highly offensive.
katharine 1mo
ylsebgcwpkvulv cool thanks for the info! I don't speak any Russian so will need to consider the best way to go about it. And thanks for letting me know, I didn't know that term was offensive! ๐Ÿ˜…

Hi U03SM0A6L10!br />
I can say only about KZ, was there a month ago. The Internet is as ok in towns (I've been to Aktau) as in cities (I've been to Astana). 4G is good and almost everywhere, costs around $10 per month and is suitable for video streaming. However, I don't remember I was using it instead of WIFI for calls.

And about the language. Expect very low level of knowing English, particularly in towns.

I want to note that many Russians, who flew from their country because of the politics thing, stayed in these countries and housing market is unstable. The dates I've been there the rent costed x1.5 -- x3 of their usual price. Maybe it's becoming better now.
katharine 1mo
zewevifu amazing thanks a lot! It's just an idea for the moment, but sounds like I need to find a Russian boyfriend before going ๐Ÿ˜‚
You could probably find one there, many young Russian men are in the region to avoid draft papers

What are your favorite "extended stay hotels" (i.e. serviced aparthotels) in Asia?
markooo 24d
It's getting more popular because AirBnB kinda sucks and hotels aren't ideal for staying long-term
markooo 24d
Especially in Hong Kong; there's The Nate, Weave Living, Oootopia and Dash Living
Hi, everyone. Any thoughts on or experiences with New Caledonia, Fiji, Vanuatu or Palau? (I'm asking here because there don't seem to be channels for Melanesia, New Caledonia or Oceania...)

I just tried a co-living hotel in Singapore (ST Signature) which wasnโ€™t too bad. You get your own room and a shared bathroom and kitchen.
dvpita 7d
Damn the reviews on gmaps for ST are horrible ๐Ÿ˜‚ ๐Ÿ˜‚
It probably depends on your expectations. It's just a cheap alternative to a dorm room that offers a bit more privacy. The rooms are very small, but that's no secret.
