Travel Writers: Southeast Asia Safety Experts Wanted

This writing opportunity is now closed.

We are looking for experts – local or expat – to give travelers the best tips and hacks on travel safety in Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. Whether you are cruising down the Mekong or catching the bus from one town to the next; we want to know how other travelers can do it safely.

Forewarned is forearmed and while most countries in South East Asia are safe to travel in, there are always those pesky scams, crimes and mishaps which can catch the best of travelers off guard.

Please only apply to briefs regarding areas you have direct knowledge of. Research is great (and getting the information right is important), but what we’re really looking for is your first-hand expertise and experiences.

Please also note – we have specific briefs, with specific requirements for style, tone and approach. DO NOT SEND COMPLETED WORKS THROUGH THE APPLICATION FORM. You must apply to be awarded the commissions, where you should include links to published work or your own travel blog, and if you’re successful, we’ll be in touch with more details regarding the assignment.
