Growing up in Singapore, Mei Yun was fortunate to travel with her family at least once a year while she was in school, which sparked her passion for escape. She loves learning about different countries and cultures and is endlessly intrigued by just how much there is to discover about the world.
Her love for travel inspired her to choose a career in the tourism and hospitality industry, and her first job after graduation was with a prominent Singapore hotel. Prior to taking the job she embarked on a six-week graduation trip across the United States and Europe, and then volunteered to go on a three-week work exchange programme to Kenya where she ticked off one of her bucket list items – going on a safari!
After almost three years in the hospitality industry, Mei Yun took a change of direction and flew to New Zealand for a three-month work and travel programme. She worked with like-minded people from all over the world and explored the whole country. She then went to Italy, Spain and London before finally deciding that helping people have the same wonderful travel experiences that she had encountered was what she wanted to do next.

Mei Yun 's Picks
- City: Seoul, Korea - It's a city that caters to all. Seoul is young and vibrant and yet rich with culture. Whether it's for shopping, food, or just a fun getaway, Seoul always has me going back and wanting more!
- Restaurant: Trout Tree Restaurant, Nairobi, Kenya - My colleague in Kenya took me to this restaurant which serves fresh trout, straight from a nearby farm. The interesting thing about this restaurant is that the whole place is built in a tree!
- Beach: Barceloneta Beach, Barcelona, Spain - This is the ultimate beach experience. It's full of people during the summer until the sun sets at 8pm. Friends and families lay in the sun, play volleyball, swim in the sea, and everyone is having the best time.
