We’re looking for experts – both locals and expats – to reveal Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos’ best outdoor escapes, city guides, and ways to experience these incredible countries. We’re specifically looking for local insiders who can share their knowledge and insights, not just people who’ve passed through on a whirlwind trip.
In your application we want to hear about authentic and interesting things to see and do, beyond the usual top attractions. Think adventure, not luxury.
Please only apply to briefs regarding areas you have direct knowledge of. Research is great (and getting the details right is important), but what we’re really looking for is your first-hand expertise.
We’d also like you to weave in some descriptions of what you personally saw and experienced: what the local culture is like, what wildlife can be seen, what is the geography and scenery, what is the temperature, the weather, what does it feel like to be there – bring these places alive for the reader as much as possible. Assume they know nothing.
Please 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.
