Backpacking holidays always seem like they should be about saving money. Travelling cheaply, living in hostels, and buying food from street markets where you can. Nevertheless, you can definitely inject a little luxury into your travels if you need it. Feet Do Travel share some of the reasons why you should treat yourself to luxury when backpacking.
Before you embark on any type travel, you need to pack, which is sometimes daunting. Deciding what to pack can leave you with a headache, and you ask yourself "which essential items do I need", and "what should I not pack?"
We have been travelling full time in Asia for over two years, and have perfected the ultimate packing list. Whilst we may not have perfected how to travel light, we certainly know which items we cannot do without.
We have been using this essential international travel packing list for many years, and it’s worked for us so far!
We have stayed in All Inclusive resorts, been on luxury tours, gone camping and now we are backpacking, plus we have stayed in every type of B&B and hotel in between. In other words, we know what we are talking about. Regardless of your age, how you are travelling and where you are going, we know the essential items to pack for worldwide travel.
We cover everyday essentials such as toiletries and electronics, how to travel plastic free, which medication you should take, anti-theft protection, plus even what bag to take.
This is Feet Do Travel’s ultimate packing list; all tried and tested! What we carry and why.
Brunei, a small, peaceful Sultanate in the north east of Borneo, a place that many overlook, but why?
When we talk to other travellers, Brunei never seems to be on anyone’s radar, again I ask, why?
And why was Brunei a place we wanted to visit?
The first thing that struck me as we drove through the border of Malaysia into Brunei was how green it looked, the second was how cheap the petrol was! At 30c (20p) per litre for diesel and 53c (30p) for petrol, this oil rich country can afford to preserve its trees and nature, and, as a lover of jungles, it was the pristine tropical rainforests that attracted us to this country.
Brunei’s marketing boasts “A Kingdom of Unexpected Treasures”, but did it live up to this claim?
The Brunei Rainforest in Borneo: When you are thinking of visiting the jungle, is Brunei somewhere you have considered? Let me tell you, it definitely should be! Scientists believe the jungle in Borneo could be as old as 130 million years, making it the oldest on the planet.
But why, out of all the other jungles in Borneo you can visit, should Ulu Temburong in Brunei be the one you choose?
Let Feet Do Travel show you the incredible Brunei Jungle - Primary Rainforest Paradise!
