Find a travel buddy

Whether you're travelling solo or in a group, Backpackr is a great way to meet nearby travellers. Browse through numerous profiles and message the people you want to meet. Results can be filtered by age, sex and location. Instantly see if they are a traveller or a local just by looking at their flag icon.

Grab a beer, or see the sites the city has to offer, it's up to you. The opportunities are endless.

A Backpacker Community

In the Common Room, anything goes. Ask people what the best sites to see are, the best bar to drink in, or even organise meet-ups. The 'nearby' tab allows you to see what's going on around you whereas the 'worldwide' tab is a more universal way of finding out information from around the world.

Online reviews can often be slightly skewed so why not get the advice of people who are there right now? The possibilites are endless.
