Less than 100 Reasons Why You Should Think Twice Before Begpacking in Asia

There was this article that has been shared for way too many times on the travelers’ group lately, and it is the one about Bali reporting begpackers to their embassies.

Look, I know I’m some kind of a failed Indonesian as I’ve never been to Bali before. However, I’ve seen this begpacker phenomenon a few times in Bangkok and Hong Kong. I don’t know though, there’s probably somewhere else that I’ve been where there were also begpackers. But at the time, I wasn’t familiar with what begpacker is.

However, I remember I was curious about why so many white street musicians around Tsim Sha Tsui when I was about to see Tsim Sha Tsui Promenade. It was only a few minutes when I saw some hippies spreading a floor mat and taking out some stuff from their traveling printout pics to even their friendship bracelet whatever.

I was amused and annoyed at the same time. And let me speak for myself, as a traveler holding a weak passport like the Indonesian one. Frankly speaking, if I were to do the same thing as they did in their country, I would be deported in no time.

But life isn’t always fair, so the only thing I could do about it is to spread the awareness on why you should think twice before deciding to begpack around Asia. This especially applies in the less developed countries like those in Southeast Asia region.

Review: Malindo Air (A Flight from Kota Kinabalu to Singapore)

Just when I wanted to highly recommend Malindo Air for any flight in Southeast Asia region, I just found out that Malindo has recently changed their policy in terms of free baggage and onboard meals.

So, after my Borneo trip ended, I flew to Singapore with Malindo Air from Kota Kinabalu. And I suppose this was one of the last Malindo flights before they changed the policy. Now that they’ve got a new policy with a few flight options, I’m still going to write a review of my flight anyway.

I’ve also checked the price with each package to compare with my last experience flying with Malindo. So, would I still recommend you to fly with Malindo around ASEAN countries? Here’s the review for this Malindo Air! 🙂
