People in Asia Are Really Sick of “Begpackers” Asking for Money to Fund Their Travels


Man, this is really annoying. Like, infuriating. The nerve of some people is enough to make your blood boil.

For some reason, there’s a trend in Asian countries of Western backpackers asking the locals for money to help finance their travels. There’s nothing like asking someone who has to go to work every day to give you some cash so YOU don’t have to work, right?


Obviously, the locals in these places are not fans of these folks, and I don’t blame them one bit. Let’s take a look, shall we?
