Discover valuable Backpacking Tips
This website covers backpacking for beginners and intermediates, but even a veteran might learn a thing or two!
The goal is to help you get the most out of your adventure(s) by sharing knowledge and personal experience from my journeys in Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Hong Kong, South Korea and India.
So, I've created a website for you containing backpacking tips, basically things you should know about to keep you safe and happy!
Build a flexible and realistic itinerary so you can visit the places you want in Asia and at the same time keeping it real
Travel cheaply, but never starve or how to flashpack without losing all your money
Build your confidence for backpacking alone and not end up in a ditch in Asia
Save money for your trip and calculate your backpacking budget
Apply for a tourist visa and complete a border crossing as smoothly as possible
There's no such thing as bad journeys, only bad advice: You'll find over 500 articles and posts at Backpacking Tips Asia.com, with freebies and guides like packing lists and budget tutorial.
Planning a trip to a region you barely know can be overwhelming and confusing, so that's why I've done my best to offer excellent and true advice.
I'm confident that you'll pick up a few tips on how to get started! Backpacking Tips Asia.com covers a lot more than planning a backpacking trip.
You'll find dozens of destination tips, completely honest reviews of guesthouses, hostels, hotels, restaurants and sightseeing attractions. This site will keep you busy ;-)
... Not to mention, cheap and comfortable ;-)
Backpacking Tips Asia.com is not only about destinations, but also preparation! :-)
When you're backpacking in Asia you have to expect to face both small and big challenges, from practical to almost dangerous situations.
And trust me, I messed up a lot of times. But I learned from my mistakes. I've experienced most of the common backpacking problems/dangers: anything from packing too much to moped accidents and scams...!
So, be prepared, use common sense and follow your gut feeling!

This site was originally started to help budget backpackers, but in 2011 I extended the scope of backpacking tips to 'luxury backpackers', also known as flashpackers.
