Free backpackers cheatsheet are now available online.

Guidebooks for travel destinations have been condensed into two pages, and can be downloaded free online.

This means that you may no longer have to go through the hassle of ploughing through thick guidebooks to plan your next backpacking trip. Rather, you'd just have to look through two PDF pages - which fills you in on where to go, how to get there, where to sleep, what to see and do, and more - for each destination.

Called the "Backpacker Cheatsheets", these "guidebooks" by GuideGecko, a publishing portal for travel guides, cover areas in Southeast Asia and beyond. They can be downloaded for free online at

These guides may also help make your trip a little more unique. "While every traveler researches his own trip, 95 per cent end up on the same itinerary," said Dr. Daniel Quadt, Chief Backpacker at "Our cheatsheets...[give] you options to explore along the way."

The cheatsheets released so far include those for destinations in Southeast Asia, such as Thailand, Bali, Cambodia, Laos, Malaysia, Vietnam, Indonesia and Myanmar. Information for Australia, New Zeland are also available. In weeks to come, cheatsheets for South America and other countries will be released.
