'Penroads' is a new online platform designed to help connect travelers in the backpacker community. The idea for Penroads was developed by Harry Fu after his own backpacking experience, during which he found it difficult to connect with other travelers. Fu wanted to make it easier for travelers to meet one another and to share meaningful experiences.

While other travel platforms are often unorganized and difficult to navigate, Penroads is designed for immediate accessibility. Penroads puts users in direct contact with one another allowing them to chat one-on-one or join larger community groups. The platform is open to enthusiastic locals as well who are looking for a way to engage with the backpacker community. In short, the platform aims to foster a social network among like minded travelers.
