PRINT: Magazine Advertising

We believe that print advertising in South East Asia is highly effective due to the down time spent by backpackers in hostels, cafes, buses and trains. Although WIFI is available in most places where you’ll see backpackers playing on their iphones, the tangible magazine is cherished and even collected years later by our readers. Backpackers browse the magazine looking for information and inspiration about places to go and things to do. We have seen them (much to our horror!) rip out pages of the magazine for their scrap book. They TRUST the magazine as a reliable resource that is written by backpackers for backpackers.
