There are something romantic looking at the message board, filled with letter, message or photo from traveler passing by. The photo above is from Betel Box Hostel, Singapore.
In the old days, during the early days of backpacking, this is the only way to communicate with fellow backpackers on the road. People would leave a message for their friends who was few days behind, note of interesting place to see, or danger to be avoided.
These kind of message boards have been mostly replaced by email and mobile phone. However, there are seems to be place who provide such message board like Betel Box, just for the romance, and for the sake of old days.
