Welcome to the Poor Traveler! When we started traveling, we made a lot of poor choices. We made a lot of mistakes. We had absolutely no clue how to plan a trip. We got lost all the time, got scammed all the time, and ended up spending way more than we should. We created this blog to provide FREE TRAVEL GUIDES so you won’t have to make the same mistakes.
Hi! We’re Vins and Yosh!

The Poor Traveler
your budget travel guides!
In this blog, you'll find hundreds of travel guides, sample DIY itineraries, airport guides, and visa application guides to help you plan your trip like a savvy budget traveler!
The Poor Traveler started out almost 10 years ago as a simple blog that documents our budget trips but it has since grown to be a rich source of tips and other information especially for travelers from the Philippines and the developing world.
Although this is a budget travel blog, we are not in the business of promoting the cheapest ways to travel. It's not always about the price. The cheapest is not always the best deal. If we were chained by costs, we would have just stayed in our hometown and never ventured out into the world. It's about your dream adventures and how you can make them happen. It's about finding destinations that are worth our hard-earned money. It's about making every journey priceless. It's about developing the diligence to plan ahead and the confidence to see value for money.
