Why Book With Us?

Hi, I’m Nikki and I started South East Asia Backpacker in 2008 after my own first solo backpacking trip! My vision was to create a travel diary for everyone, a place for travellers to share their experiences from the road. After backpacking and writing about Southeast Asia for over 10 years, I saw the opportunity to provide backpackers with the kind of experiences that I’d treasured myself in the region! 

Today, there is so much choice, but there are a lot of poor-quality tours and companies that offer mediocre experiences with little care for the environment. I wanted to create a selection of the best tours and activities to help backpackers avoid scams and dodgy tour companies.

Today, I run this website with my partner, Dave, from Spain, where we live with our energetic two-year-old daughter, Evie. All of the bookable activities that you will find on this website have been vetted by a member of our team and we have a friendly relationship with the operator. There are real humans behind South East Asia Backpacker and we are passionate about sustainable travel and development in Southeast Asia.

We are committed to helping travellers at every stage of the journey and understand that plans can change which is why we offer a full discount on the deposit up to 48 hours before the start of your trip, no questions asked. We offer advice on flights, visas, itineraries, hostels, backpacks, packing and more!

If you have any questions about our business or any of the tours that we provide, feel free to contact me on Whatsapp.

    I did the bike tour on my first day in Hanoi and it was a great way to explore the city and make some sense of the hectic roads and junctions! The tour guides were great and helped us to expertly navigate our way through the Old Town and the city. We travelled much further then would ever have been possible by foot which gave us a greta chance to really explore the area. Along the way we were treated to a variety of snacks, fresh fruits and ice cold drinks – the perfect chance to refuel before hopping back on the bikes! We had a fantastic morning and would highly recommend this experience to fellow travellers. We completed a series of tours and experiences with Friends Travel Vietnam during our time in Hanoi and we really cannot speak highly enough of them. A fantastic company that really does care about providing high quality and tailored experiences for all.
