Those of you who know me personally or have been following my blogging journey know that I’ve been a traveler long before I began my blog. Blogging has just allowed me the freedom to work as I travel. Returning to an ordinary location-based job has not been necessary for me during the past three years.
For 2014, I wanted a new challenge. Blogging pays the bills (barely), but it was never my end goal–just one way I could share my travel experiences. Now I’ve got a new way–a more personal one.
Visiting dozens of countries around the world during the past decade I’ve had some amazing experiences. Some countries I’ve enjoyed more than others. There are some that I’ve gotten to know best.
In October of 2013, I successfully ran my first tour with my longtime friend and new business partner Noel Lau. It was a perfect setup–he’s Malaysian and I loved lingering in Malaysia every time I visited. I understood the foreigner perspective as to why Malaysia is so fascinating–he was there to interpret the complex cultures of his country and its idiosyncrasies. It was a no-brainer, thus the Singapore & Malaysia Food & Culture Tour was born.
Our tour dove right into the wonderful world of Malaysian and Singaporean food, which is a fantastically delicious way to understand the cultures of the region. We took walking tours, visited historic mansions, ate street snacks, enjoyed the view from the tallest twin towers in the world, and witnessed worshipers in Muslim mosques, Hindu Temples, and Chinese Temples. We also had coffee with Singaporeans of different descent who gave us insight into contemporary life.
To get an idea of the other things we do, read our itinerary during our 4 Days in Singapore.
The number one reason you should travel with us is to have better travel experiences. We guarantee unique experiences–we show you the best local food spots, the most crucial sights, traveling the way independent travelers do it. We organize meetups with locals and explain the cultural nuances that make up each society. You’ll learn a lot, but we’ll also have fun.
The pace of our trips is relaxed enough to give you a more in-depth look at each destination, and enough to give you ample time to explore on your own. We want you to get deeper into the places you’re traveling so far to visit. We also want to keep our groups small. That’s why we’ve capped our max at 12 persons.
