Dear Travelfish reader,

We’re here to help you have the best trip of your life to Southeast Asia. It’s your trip, so do it your way. But let us help guide you.

Your plan: 2-day free pass

You’ve selected the 2-day free pass. This membership is available once only per email address and gives you access to the full destination guide and feature stories.

It does not include the ability to post on the forum (though you can read it), nor does it include the PDF guides or a Couchfish subscription.

If you wish to continue your membership after the 48 hours, you can extend into the weekly, annual or lifetime programmes.

Plan price: Free

By signing up you agree to our Terms of use

Terms of use

These terms are an agreement between you (as a Travelfish member) and Travelfish Pty Ltd.

Your acceptance of these terms of use is indicated by you signing up as a Travelfish member.

We suggest you read these terms of use carefully before joining as a Travelfish member. If these terms of use are significantly changed all members will be advised that changes have been made.

Your privacy

We have a detailed privacy policy that you can read here. In summary, Travelfish uses just enough tracking to keep the site functional. This positions us favourably compared to many other travel websites, for whom tracking you around the web is a significant part of their business model. It is not a part of ours.

User guidelines

We use what we believe to be a “strict but fair” moderation policy on Travelfish.org. You’re expected to be civil and if that is too much to ask, we suggest you consider using another travel website.

Please see our User Guidelines page for detailed policies regarding posting on Travelfish.org. Any contribution you post on the site may be edited by Travelfish as deemed appropriate.


Any contribution you make to the Travelfish website may be used by Travelfish in the future. You license us the non-exclusive, perpetual, irrevocable, royalty-free, worldwide rights to reproduce, communicate, edit and adapt any content or material you post or upload to travelfish.org.


Spammers are banned as soon as we find them. Members who repeatedly break the above guidelines will be banned. We may or may not issue a warning beforehand. Impersonating other users or running multiple accounts qualify for banning.

We ban very few accounts.

Problems joining

Please, please, please read this!

Your username and password are case sensitive. That means Peter is not the same as peter. Your username cannot have spaces in it.

When you join, you will be sent an activation email to the email account you enter in the form above. This email will contain a link you MUST click on to activate your account. We do this to verify you have entered a valid email account. You will not be able to login until your account has been activated.

If you still cannot login, please send us an email from the account you joined asking us to activate your account manually.
