Welcome to the second Travel on a Shoestring Carnival for Asia, Oz. Here you’ll find Asian, Australian, New Zealand and Oceania travel tips for those without a lot of money to spend.

Guilin, China

Photographic inspiration this week comes from Meredith Missroon (via Marilyn Terrell) at Intelligent Travel. “Our blog started a feature called Global Eye, where we pick photos submitted by people who join our Flickr pool This photo of a man walking in the rain along the Li River in Guilin, China, was too good to pass up.” You can find Meredith’s story about the photo at Global Eye: Guilin, China.


The geographical diversity award goes this week to Amy S Quinn, who encourages you to explore world Islamic culture with her post 25 Simply Amazing Mosques at the International Listings Blog. Color me impressed that I’ve been to two mosques on her list!

NE Asia

For a few more specific tips than I give in my own post on the subject, those interested in Beijing 2008 might want to read Mike’s How to save money on a trip to the Olympics posted at Beijing Olympic Games 2008.

Sheila Scarborough at one of my new favorite blogs, Perceptive Travel, writes about an offbeat museum south of Tokyo in her post Noodling around: the Shin-Yokohama Raumen Museum.

SE Asia

Chris presents a long and enlightening post on Javanese Food – a simple and healthy cuisine extraordinnaire at his blog nomad4ever.

Pete at THE RONIN TRAVELER has a couple suggestions for traveling on a falling dollar. His post, 7 Places To Visit for the Budget Traveler in 2008, would have you traveling to Asia and South America.

Thanks to everyone for participating. Submit your blog article (or encourage your favorite travel bloggers to submit) to the next edition of Travel on a Shoestring: Asia, Oz using the carnival submission form. Next week this time we travel to South America, Africa, the Middle East, and Antartica. You can still submit your posts to that carnival till Wednesday.
