Слайд 2: First let’s brainstorm!
Have you ever been to Asia? If yes, where? If not, which places would you like to visit?
Слайд 3: Step 1: Research Events and Climate for the Year depending on the place you want to visit
VS Monsoon rainy season The rest of the year
Слайд 4: Book your tickets independently, decide on the date and how long you plan to travel, most importantly the beginning and the end of your trip
You don’t need a travel agent. Plan the trip yourselves and be spontaneous
Слайд 6: This is one of the reasons?
You’ve got bloody suitcase on wheels. Real men don’t get the earth to help carry their luggage mate. They carry it themselves.
Слайд 7: Advantages of backpacking:
No need to check in your luggage when taking flights You are more mobile than with a suitcase especially in those parts where the roads are not paved. The backpack keeps you from overpacking.
Слайд 8: Get your backpack and get ready to travel light
Pack some T-shirts, shorts, a hat, a pair of shoes and a pair of flip-flops, things that you can handwash in case of emergency. One pair of pants and one sweater is good to have when you’re on a plane. Don’t forget your swimsuit.
Слайд 9: Weigh your luggage
Weigh your luggage before the trip. Most airlines in Asia allow up to 7kg of hand luggage (sometimes 10kg)
Слайд 10: Go easy on cosmetics
Bring the minimum amount of hygiene and cosmetic products in small bottles up to 50ml. You can buy most of the things you need when you get to your destination.
Слайд 11: Don’t rely too much on your booking
-Be ready for surprises such as the room you booked isn’t available or that the room looks much worse than the picture. -If you’re staying in a hostel try to respect the rules of the hostel and be tolerant to other guests. I suggest getting some earplugs and eye mask if you wanna get some sleep. Share your experience
Слайд 12: Food can be rather risky, but it’s worthwhile
Start taking some probiotics a couple of days before the trip. It’s easy to get some stomach problems and diarrhea so it’s always good to have some pills on you in case you need to calm your upset stomach. If you are familiar with Asian food in European restaurants get ready for a surprise. I hope you like spicy food.

Последний слайд презентации: Backpackers guide to southeast Asia: Renting a scooter
Scooters are everywhere in southeast Asia and they are cheap to rent. It’s a really fun and convenient way to explore the place. On the other hand it can be quite dangerous since a lot of tourists who have never ridden a scooter before do it for the first time and they are an accident just waiting to happen. Don’t be surprised to see people with a broken arm or a leg. Also all the locals use them and the roads are crowded.
