The Travellers' pub is the place to ask questions when you're confused, lost, afraid, tired, annoyed, thoughtful, or helpful. Please check the FAQ and Help page before asking a question, though, since that may save your time and others'.
Please add new questions at the bottom of the page and sign your post by appending four tildes (~~~~) to it, but otherwise plunge forward!
If you have a question or suggestion about a particular article, try using talk pages to keep the discussion specific to that article.
Please sweep the pub
Keeping the Pub clean is a group effort. If we have too many conversations on this page, it will get too noisy and hard to read. If you see an old conversation (i.e. dormant for a month or more) that could or should be moved to another page, please do so, and note there that it has been swept in from the pub.
A question regarding a destination article should be swept to that article's discussion page
A discussion regarding a policy or the subject of an expedition can be swept to that policy or expedition discussion page
A simple question asked by a user can be swept to that user's talk page, but consider if the documentation needs a quick update to make it clearer for the next user with the same question.
A pointer to a discussion going on elsewhere, such as a notice of a star nomination or or a request to comment on another talk page, can be removed when it is two months old. Any discussion that occurred in the pub can be swept to where the main discussion took place.
Any discussions that do not fall into any of these categories, and are not of any special importance for posterity, should be archived to Wikitravel:Travellers' pub/Archives and removed from here. If you are not sure where to put a discussion, leave it alone—it's better to spend your efforts on those that you do know where to place.
I've noticed on articles about countries that might be hostile to LGBT people, it only focuses on people in the LGB. I'm ftm transgender and am on hormones - while my identifications would say I'm female, I have a deep voice and very male appearance. If I were to travel to, for example, the United Arab Emirates, what would be expected of me in terms of dress? Would I face any sort of persecution?

Good question I think that information like this is omitted solely because of ignorance: it's just hard to say. One way to find out is to call an embassy. Are you asking hypothetically or are you actually planning on traveling internationally? Koavf (talk) 17:41, 7 August 2014 (EDT)
Right now it's hypothetical, but travelling is one of my biggest wishes, especially the Middle East. I'm still in highschool at the moment, so it would probably not be for a while. I have seen a few things, mostly on European articles, and the embassy thing is a good idea. Thank you for your response! 126.96.36.199 13:58, 8 August 2014 (EDT)
Follow-up Please let me know what you find and share it with others! Koavf (talk) 01:04, 9 August 2014 (EDT)
Holiday in Sri lanka
I just wanted to give a quick tip on when traveling to sri lanka. i had my trip to lanka in this summer. i was contacting mainstream tour operators for a quote for 14 day round trip and all quoted bit too high ( not being cheap, was being aware of the prices since i have a friend in sri lanka) and then my friend suggested me this touring company run by one man show ( Mr. Lanki) quoted me half the price of others and took me and my family on the best round tour. im so glad that i was recommended to him. i believe small people has the best to offer
