HOW BF WORKS
You have information that
isn't in the guidebooks.
You share that information
through tips and stories.
Your tips and stories are published to
your profile page for others to see.
The best advice is added to
the BF Travel Guides.

For backpackers who eat street food, stay at dodgy hostels, and use public transportation, finding good travel information can be difficult. That's why we created BF Travel Guides, a reliable and up-to-date resource for the information-hungry backpacker.
By making real-time travel information a priority, we help backpackers travel smarter and better. BF Travel Guides are available for anyone to use and are written entirely by backpackers who generously share their tips, stories, and recommendations from the road.
