Hello there, this is Jia Min! I’m not your average traveler! I’m a passionate globetrotter whose heart beats to the rhythm of exploration and adventure. 📸Capturing breathtaking landscapes and exploring nature have been the most therapeutic during my travel.

From exotic street food stalls to cafes to must-try restaurants, I consider myself an all-round eater. 🎨🖌️🎭🧶If you are like me, who is a museum and arts & crafts lover, click subscribe without second thoughts! Immersing yourself in an artsy environment will highlight your travel adventure! I spend thousands of hours surveying and organizing detailed itineraries for each travel adventure, and now I’m sharing my past experiences and expertise with you! Cheers 🥂
