Funky Guides

 Funky Guides – Concept

The concept is simple. At MFT we don’t believe that to visit somewhere new and have a fantastic time you need an expensive 800 page guidebook that tells you where to go, what to do, where to sleep, where to eat, where to drink, how to travel and how to behave while doing all that. Before long you can become fully submerged in and dependent on your guidebook and all the adventure and fun of travel can be quickly sucked out of the experience.

So we created Funky Guides, a range of budget travel guides which offer the compromise between information overload and being totally unprepared. The guides contain concise but important info on visa regulations, border crossings, typical budget travel costs and other things that you genuinely do need to know. Thrown in are a few suggestions for finding great local festivals, adventure destinations, natural wonders, places to party and potential travel routes.

We currently offer backpacker guides for South America and Southeast Asia. Both are available in either e-book or paperback form and should help you plan your next trip and be a useful source of info once you’re out on the open road.

You can find all our guides and reviews of them on the Funky Guides Amazon Page.
