An increasing number of travellers from the west touring Southeast Asian are resorting to begging on the street to fund their trip, as reported by a western media outlet. There are pictures on the website showing the growing trend among the westerners, which some simply find outrageous.

I once sightedd a westerner in Beijing laboriously riding a tricycle moving boxes of stuff, which though menial and grueling, in my opinion is way more laudable than begging on the street.



  • 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

Yes I read that article, but its on the rise in China as well with Russian travelers in Chongqing needing money off the police to get to their next city in China!!
I think any western beggers should be deported immediately!!
if you want something in life get off your backside, and do it yourself!! don't rely on others to do it for you

So you do not believe it? Let us defer to the hacks who reported it. They seem to think their stor ...

Why did you fall over yourself to defend the westerners? You are not even one of them ... You are a southerner, in case you forgot...

I know you are far from bright intellectually, but I simply can't resist the temptation to edify you whenever it is possible.
