After having been and seen all of these types of tourists I’ve decided to put together a post on how I categorise my style of living while travelling based on budgets, luxuries and what we do.
Through my 4 months travelling South East Asia, i’d have to say Liam and I were Glam Packers
-Staying in dormitories
-Most meals are street food
-Pre-drinking before nights out, then beers at the bars
-Drinking every night because beer is cheaper than water
-Cheapest forms of travel (long and uncomfortable journeys)
-Research different places you can go and get to them by yourself as its cheaper than tours
-Staying in private rooms or guesthouses
– Most meals are in relatively cheap restaurants. You still choose the countries cuisine because they’re the lowest prices (and you still look at the menu for prices before you enter)
– Drinking in places with happy hours and BOGOF deals, ordering vodka on the odd occasion. Not drinking every night
– Cheapest forms of travel with the odd upgrade here and there if its only few extra pound
-Create you tours by yourself using research, but taking 1 or 2 company tours if they’re really cool
-Walk most of the time, with the odd tuk tuk here and there, but barter of course
-Staying in hotels
-Meals in restaurants, eating what you want
-Drink to get drunk on any drink you choose. Maybe even a bottle? It’s only 30 quid.
-Taxis and tours all the way – who exercises on holiday?
