What to write

  1. Travel, culture, and lifestyle of Asian countries. But don't reveal too much about your personal life.
  2. Original articles for Eastasy, or your previous published works. If your article has been published in other media (including online forums and blogs), you should specify the source.
  3. Advertorial or sponsored articles are not allowed. Any advertorial materials can be deleted anytime without notice.
  4. Be nice. Cursing and libelous speeches are not nice. And don't copy others. You hate it too when people mimic you.
  5. We can reject or delete any articles if we think they do not belong in Eastasy.
