How to Get Around Southeast Asia on the Cheap

Posted: 2/28/2019 | February 28th, 2019 Southeast Asia may be a huge region — but it’s super easy to get around. It’s well-traveled (backpackers have been following “the banana pancake trail” since the late ’60s), and there’s an extensive network designed to ensure that you can easily get from A to B. In Hanoi and need to get to Bangkok? In Vientiane and want to go Malaysia? Or Ko Samui? No problem. Someone can arrange that. But what’s the best way to get around Southeast Asia on a budget? Ho...

5 Free Attractions to Visit in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

I’ve visited Kuala Lumpur twice, and I have to say I’m disappointed at how un-backpacker friendly the city is. In May 2018, the city banned all free walking tours. Popular attractions like the KL Tower and Petronas Building (KL Twin Towers) cost more than $20 just to go up and get a view of the city. Thankfully, there are a handful of attractions in the city that are free.

How Cancelling Grab Car Booking During the Ride Could Risk Your Life

We usually take the Grab Car to go to the airport or while traveling in ASEAN countries such as Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam and Laos. In one of our rides from the airport back to our home last year, the Grab driver requested me to cancel my Grab Car booking so he doesn’t need to pay the commission back to Grab. The young man kept on asking for me to cancel the Grab booking so he can make the extra bucks. For many people, it could be why not since it doesn’t really ‘harm us’ anyways. Howeve...

The rebirth of Ipoh Old Town

Ipoh in Malaysia has experienced a reversal of fortunes after decades of economic decline and tourism obscurity. I first went to Ipoh in 2010, and after visiting again in 2019 I can say its revival is real. My first visit was when I was on my way to Pangkor Island. Rather than go straight through from KL I stopped in Ipoh. It’s also a travel hub for onward travel to the Cameron Highlands. None of the guesthouses I was staying at in Malaysia had mentioned anything about Ipoh, but I always like...
