The Leaping Lemur


We're on the road ourselves at Lake Toba, meaning we have 5 minutes to thank the following for offering their services to keep this site alive. 

In the last month numbers have spiraled, with our download page getting more and more hits, though sadly we get fewer and fewer volunteers to help.

Thanks to the following for their offer.
Marcy Shrum, Nick Sheehan, Wally Cole, Chris Lannigan, Luis Dlegado, Jim Ward, Gian and Caroline Nixon.

Enjoy your travels and if you bump into them yourselves, don't forget to thank them personally for helping you on the road.

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.

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

Angkor Thom East Gate, Cambodia: The stunning temples of Angkor are a must see in Cambodia. Angkor Thom was the last and most enduring capital city of the Khmer Empire established in the 12th Century by King Jayavarman VII. There are five gates surrounding the compound that all encompass the 'face towers' that are evident in Jayavarman's buildings.

Last Week: 
Another bad week for the camera crew. Ho well! We were scrambling for a picture to fulfill the category of "Marble".

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.
