Travel with Me—Join my Malaysia & Singapore Tour


Want to join us for an exciting trip through Malaysia and Singapore?




If you’ve never traveled to Asia, Malaysia is a great place to start. It’s culturally fascinating and diverse, blends the modern and traditional, and is cleaner and less chaotic than many Asian destinations.


Oh, yeah, and the food here is my favorite in the world. We’ll introduce you to three distinct cuisines: Malay, Chinese, and India.


The Details


  • What: Budget backpacker-style small group trip to Malaysia and Singapore
  • When: 13-25 October 2013
  • How much: $875
  • Why: To visit exciting cities, colonial towns, eat delicious food, and explore new cultures!

Traveling in the Spirit of Independent Travel


Our trip aims to bridge the gap between independent travel and group travel. This means a small group (less than 12) and no tour buses and boring lectures. We’ll be using public transportation and eating at the best local restaurants! You don’t have to worry about making any arrangements, because we’ve already researched the best-value guesthouses and hostels in the prime locations.


This trip mimics the tried-and-true independent style I’ve been traveling with around the world for the past decade. I want to show travelers the real country, not what typical tourists see.


We’ll be traveling backpacker-style because you’re encouraged to pack light and will be mostly staying at hostels. The accommodation is simple, but clean and a good value. I wanted to price this trip to be very affordable.


The price includes:

  • all transportation
  • accommodation (dorm beds)
  • admission to all included attractions and sights
  • at least one meal per day


Our Trip Leaders


I’ve brought together two others who’ll be leading this trip along with myself.


Noel Lau is a Malaysian native who has lived in both Kuala Lumpur and Singapore before setting off to work and travel around the world. We met in 2005 in Spain and we’ve traveled off and on together since. He’s got a unique way of viewing the world and I’m excited that he’ll be sharing his home country with you.


Juno Kim is originally from South Korea but has developed a real love of Malaysia over the past few years. She is a fantastic photographer and has a fine appreciation for the cuisine of Malaysia. She is a new media specialist and the personality behind the massively popular Runaway Juno travel blog.
