r/backpacking is a subreddit for travellers looking for inspiring ideas, hints questions, advice and photos. It boasts over 640,000 subscribers, making it one of the most popular travelling subreddits out there, while hundreds of new posts appear on the feed everyday. As the name suggests, it is mainly targeted at people for are looking to go backpacking rather than travel in luxury, however it is a source of inspiration for all those who have an interest in exploring the world.

 

What I like best about browsing through r/backpacking is the variety of shared content, from lists to videos to graphs showing the breakdown of costs for a backpacking trip. Such a wide variety of different content is difficult to find anywhere else, and with such a large number of subscribers, new stuff appears everyday. Not only does this make the subreddit engaging, it also means it is a fantastic resource for planning a trip or simply finding out a bit more information on a destination before arriving.

 

Another aspect of the subreddit that I find particularly useful is that much of the content and advice that is shared features off the beaten track information, rather than simply pointing you towards the tourist hotspots. This differs from traditional guidebooks that may miss out the secret spots that appear regularly on r/backpacking, which means that you may find yourself having a more authentic experience than if you had followed the advice from a published source.

 

One of the drawbacks to using the subreddit for advice is that it is very jumbled in terms of how the information is ordered. Although you can search through the content by typing keywords into the search bar at the top, there are no categories that contain all the information on a particular destination all in one place.

Pros
  • Variety of content, from lists to photos to graphs to videos
  • Features lots of off the beaten track information
Cons
  • Jumbled content not divided into categories

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.
