Backpackers have fully adapted the new communication tools into their travel activities, thus giving rise to a new virtual mobility. Travellers can now be in two places at once, their physical location either at home or on the road, and the virtual location. Mascheroni (2007) explored the convergence of new communication media, the internet and mobile phones, and travel by backpackers. Mascheroni (2007: 527) stated that ‘global nomads produce and maintain mobile spaces of sociality, founded on a complex interaction of face-to-face interaction and mediated communication, co-presence and virtual proximity, corporeal travel and virtual mobilities’.
The accommodation providers have reacted to this emerging market with small, slightly more upmarket guest houses springing up recently in parts of Kuala Lumpur and Penang for example. Another trend that can be observed of fragmentation is the rise of national or ethnic groups of backpackers that may travel together or meet up using new technology at certain sites or accommodation. In particular, the rapid rise of Israeli backpackers in both India and Thailand has been discussed by Hottola (2005).
Such a political economy-type approach would spotlight issues such as the local state level versus federal or national level planning tensions apparent in many LDCs concerning backpacker resorts. This could build on the work of Britton (1991) and Scheyvens (2002). Finally, I would like to end by suggesting three specific research questions that could be usefully explored further, concerning enclaves, diffusion of taste and Asian backpackers. Although some excellent new work is appearing on backpacker enclaves (Lloyd, 2003; Howard, 2007; Brenner & Fricke, 2007), it is unclear what the exact role is of backpackers in the evolution of destinations, and specifically, are there differences between say present backpacker enclaves and other enclavic forms of tourism such as say, ecotourists?
