Day to Day Life at the S.E.A Backpacker Office:
After opening the office doors in December 2011, this place is now starting to feel like a real backpacker home! With travellers popping in and out asking advice, looking for inspiration and making travel buddies, expats stopping by to use the WIFI, bloggers and digital nomad sorts hanging out during the day, random locals bringing Whiskey… Monday to Friday is a fun-packed work week!
No day is the same at the S.E A Backpacker Office. There’s always somebody with a story to share. Since we opened, we’ve had visits from photographers, entrepreneurs, teachers, adventure companies, hostel owners, travel writers… However, the Most Interesting Visitor Award goes to a man who handed me a business card saying he was an “alchemist of spirits.” He told me he could turn my hate into love and my love into hate and that he could heal anyone within 100 metres of his wooden healing stick… You have to love Thailand.
Forget the 9 to 5, this is Thailand! Much as we try to crawl out of bed at 8am to be at the office for 9am, this happens on average once a month. On the other hand, we’ve not yet sussed Ferris’s 4 hour work week (Come on Tim, is that really possible?) so most of the week Mon-Fri, you’ll find us there!

Calling all Customers!
Our office is turning into a place where backpackers come to get advice, a hub of travel information and a place that people trust to give them honest information about travel in South East Asia. If you’d like the chance to communicate to backpackers in Chiang Mai, send us your leaflets / brochures / posters – our white wall space is yours! We give people advice about booking accommodation at the Full Moon Party, diving in Koh Tao or boat trips in Halong Bay. We’ll recommend our customers and send travellers in the right direction.
