let Passplanet be your free guidebook to Thailand
The original features of this free backpacking travel guide to Thailand include :
- Budget & practical travel information about chinese localities only.
- Ratings of the localities by the backpackers themselves : more than 40 localities precisely covered in
- What to do there & what you may not like while you backpack Thailand
- The cheapest budget accommodations (guesthouse or hostel on a shoestring ) for backpackers
- The various transportations' options for easy backpacking
- Travel information on how to save money
- Lots of backpacker's photos in special sections
- A guidebook with frequent updates
But Passplanet will, hopefully, be more than a free backpacking travel guide to Thailand
& Asia. My ambition is to make it a place where backpackers can freely exchange the latest info from "on the road" of the asian countries and communicate with each others. In the world of backpacking, information indeed changes with the blowing of the winds. But while a guidebook is out of date by the time it reaches the shelves, a web site can be updated daily.
Pass planet will strive to keep the budget information about Thailand warm !
But to achieve the above, we need your help & support. Passplanet is not supposed to be a single backpacker's journey and travel guide. There are too many trips ahead.
Thailand, Asia and the world are too vast to be covered by one individual. Let's share !
Everyone is welcome to join the backpacking adventure and submit travel information !
Passplanet is looking for new backpackers, budget writers, partners and ideas on a shoestring. And Passplanet also counts on you for its promotion. If you find it useful, please give the direction to other backpackers.
The more traffic, the more updated info in the future to backpack Thailand !
Passplanet is also a place of exchange related to Thailand. Beside all the forms which allow you to share your budget info about asian countries, experiences about a place, Passplanet also hosts a forum and a links section to other travel guide. You are welcome to submit your own travel web site in the latter and benefit from Passplanet's growing popularity in the world of backpacking on a shoestring.
Together, let's keep Passplanet as free & independent as a backpacker so more and more people can use this free travel guide to backpack
I wish you a good backpacking experience, on the site and around Thailand !
