Aaron Clarey Cucked by Priceline; abandons Manila reconnaissance

I’ve been a loyal Aaron Clarey follower since 2013 but this was pretty funny. The QRD
>books everything on Priceline to go to manilla
Not clear if he bundled flights and hotels but that’s what it seems like
>gets to manilla
>repulsed that it smells like a 3rd world shithole
>hotel doesn’t have his reservation and does classic “no have (x’s hands)” to get out of resolving the situation
>doesn’t realize you can’t use debit cards in impoverished shitholes and everything runs on cash
>rage quits and heads home after 24hrs despite intending to do reconnaissance for 3 days

Friendly reminder if you wanna do SEA book flight and hotels separately and use Agoda for hotel books. Never had a problem in Thailand or Manila.

    >hotel doesn’t have his reservation and does classic “no have (x’s hands)” to get out of resolving the situation
    This is probably because he didn't book properly or didn't check some additional paper work needed for completion. This is not uncommon abroad, especially in places that are a package deal
    >doesn’t realize you can’t use debit cards in impoverished shitholes and everything runs on cash
    You can in Manila, it's actually very common to use cashless payments at things like hotels

    >absolutely furious
    >only makes a 10:09 video
    Frick off with travelcucks and frick off buy an ad

        >doesn't just got to 711 for cash
        >goes to Manila wonders why it smells bad
        >didn't just book an airbnb which would easily be <500 for a decentish place
        >call him a fricking dumb homosexual
        W-What!?!?!

        PH is like babby mode travel for an american, he chose to make it a bad time for clicks like every travel blogging moron. The amount of times I've seen bloggers "melt down" because of flight delays to overseas only being 2 hours but would do multiple takes to make it look stupidly insane is ridiculous.

      Hotels.com has fricked me on reservations before. Their customer service is shit, but so is booking.com's. I'll just confirm with the hotel from now on.

        i got a booking dot com listing taken down with my complaint because the hotel had quit its partnership with oyo, but oyo continued to accept reservations for the hotel on booking dot com. the reserved rate was 688, the cash rate was 1200, I was offered 1000 and it was one of the shittiest rooms I've stayed in SEA

      You’re welcome. Hopefully other Clarey fans come in and offer a quip. I felt compelled to make this thread because Clarey is usually on the ball in all aspects of life, but this was a rare boomer moment. I’d never rage quit a SEA trip with 24 hours. I would pull some sister hood of the traveling pants bs and fumble my way through the irritating moment and find bliss on the other side.

    this dude is such an assblasted drama queen
    paying $10,000 for a trip to the Philippines is a joke
    a round-trip flight LAX -> MNL is $1500 tops, what the hell did he spend the other $8500 on?
    just pull some money out of an ATM with your debit card, you flaming homosexual
    who gives a frick what the gutters smell like, why are you even walking around in the streets like a poorgay?
    Manila tap water is safe to drink, people drink filtered water for taste preferences only
    get a room at any one of eight hundred hotels in Manila, then dispute the invalid reservation with priceline and demand a refund. what's the big fricking deal?
    it's perfectly normal to buy a new SIM card for every country you visit. pretending like it is some great moral outrage only reveals your profound moronation

      Yea the whole thing is pretty mind boggling to me. It’s like his Achilles heel.

      Nonsense. Every government agency is corrupt and lies about everything. Nobody drinks tap water unless they have to. Not even the poorest people drink from a tap.

      Anyways I don't know who the homosexual is, but I can't say I blame him. Manila has made me almost do an about face on several occasions.

      No reason to stay there. Little fun to be had (foreigner night life areas are probably forever fricked after covid), city girls are severely damaged, and traffic is horrible.

        I judge water quality for myself. Manila tap water is safe to drink. But if you are used to drinking Aquafina tier mineralized water, then yes its rank chlorine flavor won't go down well.
        Manila is more walkable than most other Philippine cities. It has more variety of restaurants and shops than the provincial cities. The densely crowded markets are worth a visit just to experience the human energy. But there are better people elsewhere in the country.

        I've had some miserable experiences there in the past but things have changed to make it better. Like for example I'll never be scammed by a taxi driver again now that Grab exists. The last time I went there I booked my hotel on Agoda, paid with gcash, completely hassle free. I'm an expat living in the Philippines full time so reading this thread makes me think people just trying to visit won't understand how a lot of things work here in the smartphone age.

      Lol he deleted it out of embarrassment! I fricking knew it!

      His entire channel is about being financial disciplined, not fricking up in life, majoring in the right thing, minimalism, etc, and he couldn’t take the insults in the comment section mocking him and laying bare his boomerism about travel.

      I did the video justice in my QRD

    I will forever be grateful for Aaron. He’s the reason I switched my major to tech from econ and can geomaxx in LatAm working remote instead of being a seething burgercel.
