Featured property: Ha My TT Guesthouse
Approaching Hoi An's Ha My TT Guesthouse from the road you’d be forgiven for mistaking this friendly little guesthouse for a Soviet-era bomb shelter. But if you continue down the red brick road to the entrance, you’ll be bowled over by the slightly shabby French colonial frontage, fringed by coconut trees, and an impressive art deco dining and bar area.

Samantha Brown and Stuart McDonald came up with Travelfish.org as they sunned themselves on an eastern Thai beach in 2004. They wanted to use the internet to better provide travel intelligence to independent travellers, to help them find more interesting destinations, to get off the beaten track and to find little-known places to stay. They also wanted to help little-known places to stay find people to host.
What began as a collection of their favourite spots in Thailand has developed over the years into one of the largest independent travel guides dedicated solely to Southeast Asia. Researched and written by a team of writers who live in the region, Travelfish.org today contains independently researched and written coverage to Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam. It includes anonymously written reviews by our researchers on over 4,500 places to stay and over 500 destinations in the region.
If we've written about a place on Travelfish.org, we've been there in person. There are no exceptions to this. Not one.
Our team of writers live in the region, research in person and as far as humanly possible, work anonymously. Travelfish.org operates on a strict "no freebie" basis, so what you read on Travelfish.org is our own unvarnished opinion on all things Southeast Asian. There's no outside influence you need to worry about.
Travelfish.org has an active community travel forum where you can ask and answer all manner of Southeast Asia travel questions. Download free PDF travel guides, buy an acclaimed iPhone app and browse our feature stories and general travel planning advice to get you out and on the road.
Last but not least, our destination wires provide a regular stream of interesting and original news and information. Authored by correspondents who live in the cities they cover, they are an insider's up-to-the-minute take on their home turf. We've currently got wires for Burma, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam.
So that's it in a nutshell. Whether you're travelling on a tight budget, or you want to splurge on a fabulous beach holiday, if you're doing it on your own steam, we're here to help you have the best time possible. Please do email us if you have any feedback about the site.
