Colombia is considered as one of the world’s top backpacker destinations, and there’s nowhere better to experience all that the country has to offer than its capital city, Bogota. Much of the backpacker accommodation is centered on the La Candelaria district, where you’ll find cool bars and eateries, all within easy access of the city’s major landmarks.
Explore the natural beauty of this Nordic country, which is home to the incredible Blue Lagoon and some breath-taking scenery. If you visit between October and April you may well be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights, an experience you’ll never forget.
Koh Lanta, Thailand
Thailand has long been a go-to for backpackers, and for good reason. Not only is there great weather, fascinating culture and a lively nightlife on offer, but it’s also an affordable place to stay and travel around for backpackers on a budget. Skip the overcrowded beaches of Koh Phi and Maya Bay for a visit to one of the quieter islands of Koh Lanta or Railay Bay, where you can immerse yourself in the Thai lifestyle and enjoy the beautiful beaches.
