Keeping In Touch in Asia



Communications

It is important to keep in touch when taking a gap year and undertaking gap work abroad and this is especially true when visiting Asia. This is because it is important to let people know where you are for personal safety reasons as well as to avoid any travel isolation which may come about from visiting a large non-English speaking continent.

As with many destinations there will be Internet cafes located in towns and cities and these are great to help travellers keep in touch online (with email, Facebook and Twitter) and save on mobile phone bills.
