  • Backpackers in southeast Asia have started begging to fund their trip through the continent
  • A woman from Singapore posted images of 'beg-packers' online and said they are taking money off the needy
  • Many questioned why people with expensive travel equipment and cameras needed to beg for money
  • Move follows from internet trend which saw people using crowdfunding websites to finance their travels


Do you find it interesting? It sounds that begging is becoming a trend among travelling westerners. I once sighted a westerner in Beijing riding a tricycle moving boxes of stuff, which,  though menial and grueling, in my opinion is way more laudable than begging.

Are you trying to discredit a Singaporean Muslim woman?
Do you think an unemployed South African who solely lives off the incomes of his girlfriend has more credit than her?
Believe it or not, it's true.
