Activities to Avoid in Thailand

Summary: Though Thailand is a great country to visit and a favorite backpacker destination, it is also the country where everything can be transformed by money and business. We found that some of the popular things to do in Thailand are very unethical, and have decided to share our research and let people know about the truth behind some attractive forms of entertainment. Unethical Activities One Should Avoid in Thailand We’ve been to Thailand many times, but now that we are full-time travellers we actually have a different perspective about what we see, and we tend to approach things we want to experience in a country with more ethical principles (as much as we can)....

Kuala Lumpur Top Activities

Summary: Check out a few activities, but you absolutely must see the Malaysian capital. Even if you don’t have much time, you can enjoy the atmosphere of the city. Kuala Lumpur–KL as the locals call it—is for us a highlight of Malaysia. Though we usually don’t seek out big cities and prefer quiet places, Kuala Lumpur, like Bangkok or New York, has it’s own peculiar vibrant energy and is definitely a place where one should spend at least a week. Shopping Who said that KL was a Mecca for shoppers? Well this is partly true if you consider the huge diversity of products and the scale of the prices.

How to Screw up Your Phi Phi Island Visit

Summary: Phi Phi Island is known as one of the most beautiful islands in Thailand—maybe in the world. Check out our crazy “one-day trip” to Phi Phi to avoid the mistakes that we made, and make your visit a really good one. After almost three weeks working in a hotel room or lobby, going out only at night to get food (just like vampires!), we finally decided that it was time to have some fun. So we checked out the prices for Phi Phi Island, as it was the only trip where they offered snorkeling and that’s usually what we’re looking for. The girl at the booth was really nice and she told us that we could go with a speedboat or with a cruise boat....

Baños Travel Guide: the City of a Thousand Hostels

Summary: Baños is a good place to visit when you’re in Ecuador. This very small town in the middle of the mountains offers plenty of activities and sightseeing, so it is really difficult to become bored. After two months in the Galapagos Islands, we didn’t want to spend our last 20 days in the country in a city (though we knew that Cuenca and Quito are really worth seeing), so we decided to choose between Baños and Montanita. We finally chose Baños, as it was totally different than the Galapagos. Here is some information about this small town that you should definitely visit: Why visit Baños? Though some people say Baños is too touristy, it is also a very beautiful area...

Galapagos On A Budget – 11 Sites and Activities

Santa Cruz is the second largest island in the Galapagos archipelago. It is also the most populated and the most central. In this post you will find a list of activities you can do on the island without spending a lot of money.

Here are the places we visited, as well as information on how to go there and what you will see.   1) Charles Darwin Station Level of difficulty: low Situated...
