I'm a huge fan of @travelfish and have been reading the (aptly named) Couchfish newsletter for over a year now. I enjoy reading the far-fetched stories (such as being locked in a hostel), funny anecdotes, and musings about Southeast Asia travel.

Couchfish will take you to many places and islands you've never heard of, and is well worth checking out if you want to keep in touch with Southeast Asia from afar.
