The Leaping Lemur


Take a subtle mixture of seasoned and new-be travelers, a pinch of passion, a desire to support local communities and charities, some free web-services, a link to a facebook page and flickr groups for Asian countries full of Must See! destinations and you end up with "The Leaping Lemur".

There's so much to explain about us, and we'll try on this page. But if in doubt, have a look around on our site and we hope you enjoy what you find. Or try bumping into one of us in a bar.. up a hill... on a boat... waiting for a plane...

About: The Leaping Lemur is a non-profit making group providing free on-line and downloadable travel guides to Asia. In fact, it's impossible not to be a non-profit making organisation when you don't charge for access, free downloads, no adverts or sponsorship! Lol. Enjoy.

Current Location: Siem Reap, Cambodia. 


Each week we enter a competition on Flickr. This weeks subject is "Harbour"

Hoi An, Vietnam: If you aren't in a hurry to get through Vietnam, then do take the time to enjoy a cold beer, watch the locals hop on and off of the ferry and take in the amazing views.

Last Week: 
We managed 5th last week with one of our banner pictures taken in Hsipaw, Myanmar. The competition was "Play".

Travel Guides

Over 1,000 downloads of "A travellers Guide to Myanmar". 
We've had over 27,000 hits in just 7 months! For some, that's nothing, for the charities we support, approx. 2% of our visitors visit on.Which means all of our hard work is worth it. 

Thanks if you've visited one of  the many charities that we promote.

We're always working on our next update for Myanmar, but also busy writing for Thailand, Malaysia and getting ready to hit Cambodia! Can you help? 

Free guides and downloads.

Definition of Charity: 
"Generosity and helpfulness especially toward the needy and suffering"

This is all about giving something back to the people of the countries that we've visited, to thank them for the wonderful experiences that we've had. There are no charges for receiving information on this site, because this is about sharing the latest information and not making money. You'll also note, there are no pop-ups or sponsored links to businesses. So, please take the time to look at some of the charities that we've highlighted on our charities page, and if you want to "pay" for the information you've received, then look into some of these worthy causes. Otherwise we'd gladly accept any support to help keep this site alive.
