"Heard about the scams in Asia
and don't want to become a victim?"

A tuk-tuk in Thailand
Backpacking basics
Backpacking in foreign countries might sound intimidating. The culture, food, and infrastructure are all new to you. Traveling is a great life-time experience, but...

...some cold, hard facts: Traveling in developing countries is not all 'glamor and glow'.

In for instance Thailand, there were 15 million tourists and backpackers during 2010. That means the locals are quite used to tourism and can make an honest living out of it. But some locals are dishonest and will try to lure you.

It doesn't matter if it's the local guy in the street, the rickshaw driver or the immigration officer -- they will some how try to make a couple of extra dollars. In some cases, the scams are a lot more serious and involves thousands of dollars.

So, how do you avoid the con artists and scammers? Be prepared.

In Ticket to Safe Backpacking I will show you exactly how to avoid the pitfalls and scams while backpacking in Southeast Asia and India.

    Avoid embarrassing mistakes that leave you feeling ashamed, regretful and stupid - emotions which can leave a sad mark on your backpacking trip.

    Being aware of scams will save you lots of money - money which you can use for other things like cool activities, shopping, more beers or more exciting travel adventures. Who wouldn't be happy to spend that money on more fun with travel friends?

    The knowledge on how to dodge scams will enhance your travel experience.

    You've paid a great deal of money to have a great adventure and not to be tricked by con artists. Your time on the road is valuable and can't be wasted.

In my eBook Ticket to Safe Backpacking you get a detailed list of scams.

For instance; the Cambodia-visa-scam, tuk-tuk and rickshaw scams, border crossing scams, gem scams and much more. Because I've been a victim myself, you get first-hand information on how to avoid these scams.

"Considering myself a seasoned traveler, I didn't expect much new for my own use in Amanda's Ticket to Safe Backpacking. I was wrong.

The value of this eBook is not just for novice backpackers, heck not even for seasoned travelers.

This eBook is of excellent value for all travelers, young and old, novice or experienced (although the focus is on South East Asia and India) (...)

I would recommend this eBook to every novice and seasoned traveler, not only backpackers but also those who come on bicycle, heck even business travelers who have a few spare days to spend in cities like Bangkok, Manila or Delhi. This book is your entrance to safe travel with a focus on backpacking in south east Asia and India but the book can be used by all travelers, backpackers, cyclists, tour group travelers and businessmen alike. Highly recommended!"

"How did I discover
these backpacking safety tips?"

me at trivandrum train station in india
Backpacking basics

I have hands-on experience with travel safety. Sometimes you need to be the victim to become the expert.

Since 2007 I've been backpacking in Asia, visiting countries like Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Hong Kong, Malaysia, India and the Philippines.

I went solo traveling in Southeast Asia and India for months and it was the best time of my life.

When I first went backpacking, I didn't know what a heck I was getting into! I didn't read any travel guides or travel forums before departure - all I could trust was my travel companions!

I wish I was more prepared.

Through a lot of mistakes and near-to-death happenings, I developed a huge amount of experience while backpacking.

And it doesn't stop there: I have the advantage of having a traveling family. Since I was a kid we have always been traveling, to Europe, North America and Asia. My first solo trip was to South Africa when I was 22 years old.

So you can say that I have extensive experiences with traveling ;-)
