Backpacking far from the Brits

Backpacking far from the BritsTravelers looking for the ultimate backpacking experience to make their student travel plans memorable may wish to consult the Escape from Little Britain: 10 Low-Brit Holidays list that has been published by low-cost flights website Skyscanner.

The list is packed with travel suggestions for those UK backpackers who want to get away from it all - including fellow Brits.

One way to avoid the hordes from the UK is to venture somewhere original, such as Syria or Bosnia, which are great for budget travelers and boast expanding hostel facilities.

Located next to Turkey, Syria has a wealth of history and endless attractions set among stunning scenery.

An unlikely destination for those more at home with chips for every meal and Carlsberg on tap, the Middle Eastern country may be just what the intrepid backpacker looking to veer off the beaten track is seeking.

Travelers heading to Syria may wish to spend time exploring the winding streets of the capital city Damascus, which is considered to be one of the oldest continuously populated cities in the world.
