Living on a Backpack: Perth’s Backpacking Havens

Backpackers are seen as thrifty, budget conscious travellers but in reality, they can be considered as those who embrace independent travel as a form of lifestyle. With the growth of budget airlines and cheap accommodations, many have travelled far and wide to experience life in other countries. Mass media and pop culture has made backpacking a new fad for teenagers who want to experience the world first hand. Many Aussies have travelled to different places in Australia to experience living away from their cities and towns and meet new people and learn new things independently. Perth has emerged as one of the favourite backpacker destinations in recent years because of a number of cheap hostels, budget-friendly hotels, and backpacker accommodation that can be accessed via hotel search site Odusee.

When you go to Perth, you will probably meet a friendly backpacker who will teach you a thing or two about how’s it feel to live your life on the road like a modern-day nomad. The first that you should do before to go to your destination is to find cheap but quality accommodation that fits your needs and budget. Never forget to consider the following factors aside from the quality and cost of your stay: length of your stay, accessibility, neighbourhood safety, and proximity to important backpacker destinations. Once you figured that out then you are set to go and explore Perth on a backpack. When you go backpacking, expect to forego all luxury accommodations and extra service.
