Travel Blog Roundup

There are more and more great travel blogs and sites appearing online that provide plenty of inspiration and information for your travels

While I’m off in Australia, it seemed a good idea to point towards some of the other travel blogs I’ve been reading and enjoying recently:

Vagabondish – an excellent “pre-trip” travel blog where Mike describes getting ready for his two year round the world trip. His “5 Round The World Must Dos” is a great topic that would look on any travel blog (ie I’m going to steal this idea when I get back from travelling!).

Paul at Travmonkey continues to document his return to Sydney and the hell of trying to be a working man when you live in a backpackers hostel. His pain is my entertainment.

Bangkok Ali has a very true rundown of the A – Z of Bangkok Taxi Drivers, all part of her life living in Bangkok.

I’ve just realised that Timen at In My All Stars has an entire photography book you can download for free – it’s a collection of pix from his first travels and has already received a lot of glowing reviews. I’m looking forward to Timen’s write up of how he put the book together.

Malaysia Travel Guide is a promising new site with clearly laid info on where to go in Malaysia – this one could grow into an extremely good resource.

Brave New Traveler is a consistently quality blog with several contributors and a very nice design. It’s definitely worth poking around in their archives as there is a lot of useful stuff here.

Travelfish is the number one site to visit for info on Thailand, Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia – yes, even more than Travelhappy. Travelfish is a vast site of info for travelling in South East Asia, and you can find pretty much any travelling question answered here.

Finally, a quick mention of Brian Clark’s Copyblogger, an invaluable blog about writing better. I recently shared a tip with Brian about getting your work linked on other blogs, which he then turned into a post – The Secret Of Effective Content Promotion. If you’re in need of more link love for your blog, it might help you.

If you have a travel blog thats concerned with Asia and Australia, in however vague a way, let me know about it in the comments. I’m always interested to find new stuff to read.
