Responsible Waste Disposal on our Nepal Treks

by we-admin @ World Expeditions

Tim Macartney-Snape from Leave No Trace outlines how we aim to dispose of the litter we collect through our 10 Pieces initiative in Nepal and other destinations around the globe.

34 bite sized travel tips to make life easier

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

When you travel nomad-style, slowly moving from place to place, you very quickly learn plenty of travel tips to make your life just that little bit easier. Stopping and soaking up the culture of a place, rather than ticking tourist attractions off a bucket list, is very different to using your 3-4 weeks off work every year to lie on a beach at a resort. Whether you’re travelling alone, with someone else, or as a family like we do, you’ll very quickly learn what works and what doesn’t for you and your particular needs and circumstances. Our first destination when we left Australia was Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam, and before we’d left our first hotel we’d made changes to the way we travelled. Your travel learning curve really is that quick! So, to give you a head start on things to think about for when you start travelling, or even if you’re already on your way, here are 34 bite sized travel tips to make you’re travel life a bit easier.

25 THINGS TO KNOW BEFORE TRAVELING IN THAILAND

by Steven @ The Hungry Suitcase

Thailand, with over 26 million foreign entries in 2016, can be a very touristic place to visit. By some accounts, 20% of the Thai GDP is based on tourism (worldwide nations average about 10%). Thailand is often an entry point for all of Asia, a constant revolving door of tourists on short or extended trips. We’re writing this article to help you avoid getting your hand caught in that often dangerous door.

Thailand is a country that can live up to its high expectations and reputation. It really can be paradise. On the other hand, it can be a disappointing place filled with drunken pub crawlers, tourist scams, empty promises and subpar made-for-tourists versions of local dishes. Pad thai made with instant noodles? You’ll find it all over Phuket and Koh Samui. If you venture past the tourists districts, the food ... Read More »

by we-admin @ World Expeditions

The last thing you want to find out after booking and spending thousands of dollars on a holiday is that there is a huge list of things that weren’t initially included.

Vietnam Visa On Arrival – everything you need to know

by Chris Appleford @ Travelling Apples

The whole idea of a Vietnam Visa On Arrival approval letter seems a little strange to me. Having to apply and send money to a website you don’t know is legit, to get emailed an approval letter that must be presented at your arrival airports Visa On Arrival office (with more money) before you get your visa is a real leap of faith, especially for the inexperienced traveller. Given Vietnam was the first country we went to when we left Australia, we were about as inexperienced as you can get. But this is the process we went through and it worked out perfectly. What is a Vietnam Visa On Arrival As the name suggests, a Vietnam Visa On Arrival is simply when you’re issued with your visa when you arrive by plane, as opposed to organising it before you leave your country. You can go through your local Vietnamese embassy to ensure you have a visa before you leave your country if you prefer, but it’s more expensive, you’ll need to send your passport away and it takes more time. The bonus is you can just walk through customs on arrival without having to head to the Visa On Arrival office, [...]

The 5 Best Night Markets in Taipei

by Bill @ The Hungry Suitcase

Taipei is inarguably one of the top street food cities in the world. Taiwan is known as the land of snacks: they have literally invented and re-invented genre after genre of snack food over the years. From pearl tea to fried chicken, the Taiwanese are all about inventing and perfecting the ultimate snack foods. Think Chinese-influenced foods created with the ingenuity and dedication to perfection that (you would think) only the Japanese would bring. While Taipei isn’t quite as famous with local Taiwanese as Tainan for their snack culture, they’ve got it covered and will most likely be your first stop in Taiwan. The sheer volume of street food options available alone are enough but, matched with the quality and price of the food available on the streets, it’s pretty much unbeatable.
