You will find here some advises on :
If a girl, dress discretely. There are already enough sexual
Do not use drug. Most official documents handed to tourists carries the following sentence : "Trafficking in illegal drugs carries the death penalty". You have been warned. Consumption is not too popular either.
How to keep the low cost even lower ?
Same as above but for another reason, avoid the expensive mineral water in bottles. Buy just one and then fill it up during your whole trip with boiled water from the guesthouses.
Follow the Muslim's code of conduct (except of course with the girls) and remain sober. Beer is as expensive as a basic room.
Eat at the night markets, of course.
Do not hesitate to ask for a discount for your room in low season or if you stay for a couple of days. But keep smiling...
Do not take tuk-tuk or taxi in the cities. Walk ! Most cities are relaxed and colonial enough to make such activity pleasant.
But remember that enjoying a trip is sometimes or from time to time worth a little bit more... Backpacking is more about the bag than the money !
