Working with Travelfish

Under paid and over appreciated. is always on the lookout for top-notch, enthusiastic, dedicated Southeast Asia-based contributors. Right now we are looking for a regular writer based in Kuala Lumpur -- if you're interested, drop us a line!

Applicants must be native-English speakers. Please outline what writing and research experience you have along with your history in the region.

Please note that we focus on providing impartial, independent and original travel content for backpackers and independent travellers to Southeast Asia. Writers are not permitted to take freebies for anything they write about for us.

This is part-time, contract-based work, suited to those who while based in Southeast Asia, still travel frequently, can file frequently and enjoy both. We currently have around 20 paid contributors on our books.

We no longer take submissions from people who are just travelling through Southeast Asia -- you must live here.

Fees are low and you will need other means to fully pay off your mortgage.

If you don't live in one of the cities we're currently hiring for, don't despair. So long as you're living in a country we cover, drop us a line with some details of your background and we'll keep it on file -- you never know what might pop up.

We do not accept guest posts nor do we offer internship positions. Sorry.
