What is the best singles vacation options for a professional male in his mid 30s?

Question by Parallox: What is the best singles vacation options for a professional male in his mid 30s?
I have a LOT of vacation from work I need to burn up between now and November. The thing is I am single, and really don’t have any friends I can go traveling with. So I am looking for some travel ideas for a male in his mid 30s. I would like to go someplace a bit more upscale. I did Jamaica a few years back, and didn’t enjoy it. I have also been to Vegas, and really didn’t like it, being I live near Atlantic City, and am not into drinking and dancing. I like the beach, but don’t want to get burned to a crisp. I am not sure I want to do a tour, hopping from city to city, unless there are a lot of cute girls involved. As far as general locations, I was thinking of Europe (on the Mediterranean), the Caribbean, Hawaii, Thailand, maybe even China. I have also looked a cruises, but with hurricane season, I am not sure if that is a good idea. So if there are any locations I missed, or if there are specific recommendations on the places I listed, or vacation companies I should consider, let me know (and don’t say Kontiki, my cousin went on a tour of Alaska and it was a sausage party).

Debbie, that was a lot of great feedback. I am working with a couple travel agents, and am waiting to hear back form them, and what options they have. I was thinking of a European tour, but also want to swim at some nice beaches, so we’ll see what happends. Too bad the hurricane season is upon us.

So… is your 29 year old friend cute 😉

Best answer:

Answer by Debbie B
Hawaii is NOT a good singles place…it’s all people who are either with their family or on their honeymoon (my friend who is a single 29 year old woman is currently there on vacation – having a great time, but said NO single people there). Same holds true for the Caribbean.

I think your best bet is a cruise…they even have singles cruises (my coworker went on one and had an amazing time). I haven’t ever been on a cruise, but I know they have tons of activities/great food/entertainment. It’s a really nice place to meet people.

Europe could be fun, and I guess you could meet some fun foreign women…but still not a great option for a “singles outing.”

My ex went to Australia after we broke up and had an incredible time. He did it through a touring group. If you have a lot of time to spare, that is a great place to visit!!! If I had a lot of vacation time that’s where I would go. Sadly, I only get 3 weeks vacation/personal/sick a year….15 days for an entire year…sigh 🙁

Q&A: When is the best time to get citizenship?

Question by hazeltine4: When is the best time to get citizenship?
My fiance is a Chinese citizen, but has had her permanent Green Card (permanent resident) in the U.S for nearly 15 years. We are planning our wedding and honeymoon. She currently only keeps her Chinese citizenship to make it much easier to visit her parents in China, without needing a visa every year.

For our honeymoon, we are planning a Mediterranean Cruise, where she would need multiple visas for the countries we wil visit — at least four visas.

When should she get her US citizenship — before, or after the wedding and honeymoon? As Chinese women do not change their names after marriage, it would not affect her name – other than maybe to go to her “American” first name.

And no — she does NOT need to get married to an American to stay in the U.S.! She has a great job and career with a U.S. corporation.

Lastly — what is the best way to get all the visas needed for the honeymoon??? It seems like most require Embassy visits in Chicago now.

Thanks!!!
Also, we are planning a September of October wedding this year, if that makes a difference.
Also, China does NOT allow dual citizenship. After the citizenship in US, she will lose Chinese citizenship, but she is OK with that.

Best answer:

Answer by Terry
I don’t see that it makes much difference. But the wait from application to citizenship could be 18 months – so that will impact your planning. Once she’s filed her application, it’s much harder to travel outside the US, until the citizenship is granted.

What’s the best state in China??? Beijing or Shanghai ?

Question by : What’s the best state in China??? Beijing or Shanghai ?
I want to Travel to china next week , I am confused between Beijing and shanghai

beijing has great heritage sites and anicent places , shanghai also have ancient places and have the yangtze River

Best answer:

Answer by Yan
I’m pretty sure China doesn’t have states and that Beijing and Shanghai are cities. I have been to both cities. Shanghai was very hot when I went, but there were lots of nature things to see while you’re driving on the road. The food is okay, but personally I enjoy eating food in Beijing more. Honestly, Beijing was the best for me because there are so many things to do, shop, eat, and go sightseeing. There are a lot of interesting buildings and you can see the Bird’s Nest! Beijing is a lot of fun.

Question by cancersucks: Isn’t it in China and India’s best interest to clean up the Yangtze and Ganges rivers?
Someone once pointed out that the healthcare costs of premature babies is skyrocketing out of control. Well, we have to pay it! What do we want, the human species to die out? Same with the rivers. We cannot live without water. So isn’t it in China and India’s governments interest to clean up the rivers and prevent their pollution so that you don’t have people dying? You have to find a way!!

Best answer:

Answer by Millie C
Despite the fact that U.S. is still the leader in pollution, China will soon surpass us as they continue to industrialize. It’s not just the rivers that are worrisome…you have air pollution, depleting vital resources, endangering species…especially in our oceans. They economy has improved and their population is stabilizing, which is good, but at what cost?
