Advisor - David Tan


Previously a digital nomad who fell in love with Bangkok, now calls Thailand his home. Extensively traveled in Southeast Asia, having lived in Bali, Singapore and Penang. At heart, a native of San Francisco!

My travel style

I love finding hidden gems and places only locals know about. The journey, discovery process and human connections make traveling meaningful and rewarding. Definitely spend a day doing all the must-sees, but reserve the remaining time for experiences that you'll remember for a lifetime. The best memories are ones that are unique, that many travelers don't know about.

Favorite hotels

Recently returned from:

  • Coffee tasting in Medellín, Colombia. 

  • Flying drones in Bali, Indonesia. 

  • Eating at the hawker centres in Singapore. 

  • Finding a great local whiskey bar in Tokyo.

Dreaming of:

  • Hiking the 88 temples in Shikoku, Japan. 

  • Scuba diving in Raja Ampat, Indonesia. 

  • Tea tasting in Sri Lanka. 

  • Experiencing a 24-hour day in Northern Norway.

One thing I can't travel without...

An open and good attitude.

Two truths, one lie:

  1. I was locked down in Singapore for three months at the onset of the pandemic. 

  2. I drove 2,500 miles in five days on a road trip in Norway. 

  3. I've been mistaken for a celebrity several times in Thailand.
