The South East Asia Travel Show

Selfie Travel Culture in SEA

In this edition, Gary and Hannah analyse the origins of 'selfie tourism', and how travel brands are using it to their advantage. En route, they namecheck several photogenic locations, from rooftop Bangkok bars, overnight trains in Myanmar and side alleys in Penang to the temples of Angkor Wat, mirrored backdrops in Bali and romantic shots at Marina Bay.
