Ever since we've read the cover article of the incredible Fliptravels duo on the pages of Southeast Asia Backpacker's Magazine, we've been wanting the same for ourselves. So I got a big Valentine's Day surprise when I found a corrugated box waiting for me at the breakfast table:

It contained 2 copies of the magazine with our I love Pai article inside!

SEA Backpacker Pai Article1

Pai was the cutest jewel box of a town that we have stumbled upon in Thailand. And we love that more travelers will get to discover it for themslves. If you're looking for a place to relax, take long walks around a picturesque town and enjoy a cappuccino while you read your free copy of Southeast Asia Backpacker's Magazine, then Pai is the perfect place in Thailand for that.

I was lucky enough to meet their Editor in Chief, Nikki Scott, when she was in Manila last month and she is a well traveled, fabulous backpacker! (Who seems to enjoy glampacker trips every once in a while). Thanks Southeast Asia Backpacker's Team for publishing our piece! Copies are now out on news stands!
