Our Advertisers

South East Asia Backpacker Magazine is supported by many fantastic businesses across South East Asia who have not only helped us financially over the years in terms of printing the magazine, but with moral support, advice and encouragement! We don’t advertise businesses that we don’t believe offer something unique for the backpacker in this part of the world. So, we urge our readers to have a coffee, grab a bite to eat, take a dive course, book a night’s stay or take a course at the following places, and say hi to the quirky, charismatic owners who have become our friends! Heading to any of these places next?
