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.

  1. Will and Ellie

    We recently took on the full day climbing tour at Railay with Real Rocks Climbing School and it was one of the best tours we’ve done in Asia! Our guide was funny, friendly, extremely knowledgable and super passionate about rock climbing – he knew exactly what routes to put us on according to our ability and safety was the top priority the whole time. We got to climb on some exciting routes, surrounded by incredible scenery and views – Railay is such a beautiful place to climb – and we also met some great people along the way! It was such a brilliant day and we would recommend this tour to anyone, no matter how experienced they are!
