"Visas: US, Canadian and EU citizens with valid passports have the luxury of being able to visit Romania visa-free for 90 days. All other Western visitors need a visa, obtainable in advance at a Romanian embassy or upon entry to Romania.
Health risks: rabies (Vaccinations should be considered), typhoid (Vaccinations should be considered) "


Oare pentru ca nu am apucat sa ma vaccinez o sa ma imbolnavesc cand ajung acasa?
.. Om trai (sa speram) si om vedea.


"The cost of dining is rising - Romanians can't afford to eat out, so most restaurants are geared to 'rich foreigners'. In Bucharest it's tough to eat for less than US$5 per head, not including alcohol. Eating out is cheaper elsewhere, and a bottle of good Romanian wine can be as little as US$1.50. Seeing a film or play costs about US$1, and entrance fees to museums are about 20 cents. Public transport is dirt cheap by Western standards. US$3 will take you approximately 100km by bus or comfortable express train. Petrol is around 45 cents a litre."


Si aici as mai avea un mic comentariu.. : Benzina creste; a ajuns deja la aproape 1 $ . Deci.. dragi redactori "Lonely planet", actualizati-va continutul.

si inca ceva in care veti recunoaste tarisoara noastra:


"Tipping is not common in Romania, though you should always round up the bill to the nearest 500 lei. Some bartering, but not much, goes on at flea markets. Taxi drivers drive a hard bargain, so always haggle."

hmm, mi se pare un pic depasit, carciumile si terasele sunt destul de pline prin Bucuresti si nu de straini. iar cu 5 dolari (200k) mananci 2 feluri si bei si o bere.

1. 5$ nu fac 200k decat poate dupa alegeri :)
2. Ceva-ceva dreptate ai, si nu prea:) daca te referi la "la mama", sau la alte terase orientate mid-range. Cu 200-250k papi acceptabil(dupa standarde romanesti) "la mama" (tip included), si o bere; daca vrei insa si un drink aperitiv, eventual o sticla de vin digestiv, .. deja ajungi la 500k usor.

Parerea mea, in plus, este ca "depinde de ce mananci". Si daca cu niste mici(de calitate incerta) si bere te poti incadra binisor in 5$(165k), la o terasa de cartier, restaurantele adevarate raman insa excluse.

Ei, dar pe de alta parte, la ce se asteptau oamenii? Ca doar in alte parti nici la McDonalds nu prea poti cina cu 5$. Doar pentru ca salariul mediu e infim la noi, preturile sa fie si ele ?

faza cu McDonalds e adevarata POATE doar pentru Europa. in North America poti sa mananci lejer cu 5USD la pranz. Si nu numai la McD care e considerat junk food.

in Europa restaurantele sunt mult mai scumpe decat in North America... Si de altfel, si mancarea europeana e mai scumpa in North America decat cea asiatica, de exemplu.

Eu sunt de vreo 3 saptamani in America de Nord si pana acum nu am gasit locuri unde sa iei pranzul decent cu 5 dolari. Aa...la Mc, poate, inca nu am fost pentru ca nu am vazut nici unul pana acum (sunt in DC). La Subway mananci un sadnwich cu chipsuri si cola pentru 5 dolari. Dar dupa o saptamana de mancat acolo, nu iti mai vine sa intri in viata ta, si nici sa mai pui gura pe sandwichuri.
In general platesti vreo 6-7 dolari pentru un pranz american "acceptabil".

Intradevar, uneori mancarea europeana este mai scumpa decat cea asiatica. E cumva si normal. Daca vreo sa mananci niste bucatele de pui perpelite in sos f picand cu o kila de orez alaturi, platesti intradevar mai putin decat daca vrei niste branza frantuzeasca cu un pahar de vin, apoi e niste cartofi natur cu o ceafa la gratar. Chiar si mancarea greceasca e scumpa.
