In The Guardian: New Must-Do Experiences

Thank you to Gemma Bowes from The Guardian Travel Section for including us in the article, “Backpacking: a guide to classic and new must-do experiences.”

We Said Go Travel recommended:

India: “Instead of Goa, Gokarna, further south, is the seaside region for quieter, lovelier sands, at Kudlee Beach, Om Beach, Half Moon Beach and Paradise Beach.”

Mongolia: “Mongolia, including multi-day trips by van into the Gobi Desert, surprisingly full of delicate purple flowers (book with popular hostel theUB Guesthouse.”

Nepal: “Sarangkot, Pokhara, in Nepal offers parahawking, which is a new paragliding experience with birds of prey as guides. Trained vultures lead the tandem divers into thermals and land on backpackers’ arms to be fed, all while swooping through the sky.”

Samoa: “Seeing sunrise at Falealupo, Samoa in the South Pacific. Until 30 December 2011, it was all about going to the last place on the planet to see sunset. But then Samoa jumped over to the other side of the dateline, so the village is now one of the first to see the sunrise instead. Visitors can celebrate New Year’s Eve in Samoa, then fly one hour to American Samoa and do it again the next day, or go for a birthday to celebrate twice.”
