I'm in Southeast Asia Backpacker Magazine!

 A couple months ago I had the pleasure of meeting Nikki, the gal behind Southeast Asia Backpacker magazine, during her visit to Singapore. You can find the magazine at backpacker hotspots across Thailand, Vietnam, Laos, and Cambodia, and now they've expanded distribution to Malaysia and Singapore.

So what better way to kick-off the magazine's arrival in Singapore than a feature on the city? 

It's no secret that Singapore is an expensive city, but backpackers who've gotten used to super-cheap travel may be blown away when they discover their daily budget of $20 in Cambodia barely covers a dorm bed in Singapore!

Check out Issue 12 for my 5-page article on how to survive Singapore on a budget. It covers everything from Singapore's backpacker neighborhoods (Little India, Chinatown, Bugis to tasty hawker center food to the cheapest way to get to Kuala Lumpur.
I'd scan the article, but there's already a perfect digital copy online at http://issuu.com/southeastasiabackpacker/docs/issue_12.

Boat Quay...  and my by-line!
