The Story of South East Asia Backpacker Magazine!

10 years ago, a 23-year old traveller from England set off on an adventure that would change her life. She created the first print magazine for backpackers in Asia, a unique concept which allowed travellers to submit their own articles. Today, that humble idea has grown into a huge community of travellers who share their experiences on this website. Thousands of travellers, just like you, contribute to creating this ever-evolving free resource.
