Buenos Aires v. Bangkok

I plan on traveling to either Bangkok or Buenos Aires for a month. I am familiar with Thailand/Bangkok, and can make friends and meet women quickly there. Never been to Argentina. If my Spanish is mediocre, would I likely be lonely there the entire time solo?

    BA is way less tourist friendly and you have to be on your guard more. It’s not like Bangers where you can stroll down Sukhimvit at 0300 drunk out of your mind and be fine. That being said, BA has more Western style things to do. Better looking women if tiny Asians aren’t your thing. Less tourists too so if you want to meet people knowing the local language is more important.

      When you say that Bangkok is more tourist friendly, you are implying that a higher percentage of people are fluent in English right?

        not him, but yes, most people in Argentina are shit at English

          Actually? I'm so starved for female attention that I would be fine spending $200 being used for a free meal if I could get some passable conversation and the validation of being seen in public with a passably attractive woman. I've done hookers and they are great, but they don't scratch the validation itch.

        Not fluent but they know enough. BKs entire economy is propped up by tourism. They treat you like a guest from the time you show up till the time you leave, provided you still got some Baht in your wallet. They expect you to be a goofy farang tourist.

        In BA you are just a fricking mark gringo and they actively and openly resent you. Not to say you can’t find cool people, you just have to be way more aware/street smart.

      Does this apply to every SA country?

        Yes. Even Peru which has something of a tourist economy just doesn't feel welcoming or safe for normie tourists compared to Thailand. It's 3rd world AF. Chile and Uruguay are safer but don't get a lot of attention so don't expect things like English menus or staff outside of maybe hotels.

            I wouldn't say it's like Japan safe, you're still likely to have your backpack stolen or something like that if you're not careful but it has a lower level of inequality than most of latin america.

            It's the most European Hispanic country.

            Latin America just feels more lawless and undisciplined, and your safety depends on your choices and actions. Thailand is a very disciplined and high-trust society; LatAm is more anarchic and low trust. You are expected to know Spanish, but not expected to know Thai. However, Argentinians are ranked higher on English proficiency than Thais. Thai civilization is entirely Thai and non-Western, not an inferior colonized mutt civilization derived from Spain. Hispanic inferiority does breed resentment toward Anglos, but humble & appreciative foreign guests rarely experience hostility in any country.

    sadly yes, BA has better women if you are into white/latinas. architecture is more european in places and food will be more western type food. But yea english levels are low, and this is 100% a place you will get scammed and ripped off due to currency exchange if you arent careful and def are alot of unsafe areas and people.

    If you have been to thailand before then even though certain places can "look" unsafe due to the dirt and grime and unfinished ness of streets and areas. Its overall extremely safe in thailand from violent crime or danger.

    Anons in Argentina, with Milei devaluing the currency 50% and cutting subsidies soon, is it over for USD Chads. What are your predictions?

      Who cares if he devalues the currency? As if everybody wasn't already going by the dollar blue.

      Milei can't do jack shit except create more economic problems with mass unemployment of the public sector.

        Argentina created a massively inflated public sector for a middle income county. That's why it's like this. They can't afford to keep it going so cuts are the inevitable end result. Miles just sped that up a bit.

      Frick no.
      It's not as cheap as before but still affordable and the government won't rip you off anymore if not paying with cash.
      Even then then, good luck paying for stuff with anything else than cash.
      I'd be more worried about safety issues than money.

        What are you talking about, you'd still get near blue rates paying with credit card. I used mine a few times although I generally prefer cash, it's no big deal.

    Why are flights to Bangkok so much cheaper than to Buenos Aires? Is it just the volume of flights is higher?

      Bangkok is a transport hub, BA is far from everywhere and Argentina has weird fees for airlines and unreliable USD payments. I've heard it can be cheaper to fly to Uruguay and take the ferry over if you've got the time.

    If I'm not fluent in Spanish where would I find a woman like pic related? Like what are the changes of a girl at a club speaking English? Are things bad enough yet where they would settle for me for a green card?

      None. Spanish is the easiest language for an English speaker to learn, you lazy frick.

      No woman who is that hot has to settle for just a green card anywhere in the world. You'd better bring game and money, but I can tell you have neither.

          Plenty of women like that in Argentina. The country is known for both its polo horses and its horse-faced women.

    been to buenos aires two times, was always happy to leave again. it's a extremly shitty version of spain. dog poo everywhere, unfriendly arrogant people, feels dangerous at night, becomes boring quickly. though its fantastic for mongering. if you want to do south america i would go to brazil instead.

    bangkok is s-tier. spend 6 months there combined and can't wait to get back. friendly people, endless entertainment, great vibe, easy to get around with bts and mrt. bang for buck is just phenomenal. would say its the best mega city in the world taking cost of living, entertainment and safety into consideration.

      BsAs seems to be a love it or hate it city based off of posts on this board. From online research it looks like endless urban sprawl with no stand out attractions or points of interest. Yet some anons here have referred to it as the 'Paris of Latin America'... it must be the coomers who are hyping this place up so much?

        the architecture is certainly outstanding by latam standards, it has an european vibe. but this is interesting for 2-3 days, then what?

        you end up hanging out in palermo all the time, and maybe spend some time in the parks. nothing outstanding or special by any standards. not much upside for all the downsides that come with being in argentina.

        if you don't have to be in buenos aires, there are just so many better options.

        It does have a few decent museums, a beautiful opera house with a full program, and while it's mostly sprawl it does have a large park. If you are looking to party, if you don't have friends to go out with, it might not be so fun. The clubs are spread out and there's no real "zona rosa" like there are in other South American cities. To enjoy BA you need to make friends so you can enjoy the culture of asado and drinking mate with each other.

        There is a lot of dog shit. It's the worse city in the world for dog shit.
