Lucy’s family roots in Asia go way back to 1876 when her great, great grandfather helped finance the expansion of colonial Hong Kong during his tenure as the Chairman of HSBC. Fast forward nearly 140 years and Sir Thomas Jackson’s statue still stands in Hong Kong’s central business district, and Lucy’s love affair with Asia is in full swing!

Her credentials include working for three of the leading tailor-made travel companies in the UK, and her career has progressed from a travel specialist with a focus on Latin America to one with a more global scale, organising educational trips across the continents. Lucy’s dream has always been to find a way to live and work abroad in a field that involved frequent travel, and she ticked all of these boxes in moving to Hong Kong and co-founding Lightfoot Travel’s second Asian hub in 2011.

Her favourite part of the job is working with other cultures and learning from the fascinating people she encounters on her travels. Like all of Lightfoot’s best clients, she is constantly daydreaming about far off places and planning her next big adventure.

Lucy Jackson 's Picks

  • Hotel: Cocoa Island, Maldives - For the isolationist in me, Cocoa Island is a quiet sanctuary from which to retreat from the world.
  • Beach: Palawan, Philippines - Take me back to swimming off the shores of Amanpulo and watching the live version of 'Finding Nemo' with three turtles swimming 'dude style' right by.
  • Train Journey: 'Tren a las Nubes' (Train to the clouds), Argentina - This is one of the highest railways in the world. We went through a series of switchbacks, and spotted a luna landscape as we climbed higher, followed by a lonely llama on the side of the tracks. The idea was to connect with a freight train across into Chile; instead, we missed the weekly connection and found ourselves with no money and a bottle of whisky!
