Who is Walkaboutmonkey?

Hi! I’m RJ, about a decade ago I left my corporate career to travel in South East Asia.
I share my experience hoping to inspire and show you that there’s a beautiful world out there waiting to be explored by you!


South East Asia Travel Site

Travel guides that tell you all you need to know to plan your trip of a lifetime. I will provide you with first hand, accurate and up-to-date information on where to go and what to see. Let me inspire you with suggestions on things to do, from the absolute highlights to unique and in the know experiences.


Eat like a King

I will tell you about must try authentic local foods and the best places to eat from street food to acclaimed restaurants. You know I will try everything, but don’t expect just creepy crawly food recommendations here. Instead, expect an insider look into the best food that South East Asia has to offer.


Inspiring Stories

We can all visit the same places, but in the end we all take our own personal stories home. Usually it’s the small random stuff that happens on the road that makes your trip truly exceptional. The kind of stuff that stays with you for a lifetime and turns you into a storyteller (-Ibn Battuta). These are my stories.


Join the party, why don’t ya?
