Jear is a well-travelled man, having traveled to countries in four continents. His previous work provided him with countless opportunities to see the world. One of the first places he visited was South Korea, a beautiful travel destination with a rich and unique history. Then, he followed with trips to Singapore, Taiwan, Japan, Austria, America and New Zealand. Here, we take a look at a few of his top travel picks.
Be a tourist, even on a business trip
Vienna and New York are his preferences when it comes to traveling for work. With a different way of life, he enjoyed the change in the scenery in Vienna. The place has a rich culture and a unique lifestyle compared to what he was used to. Featuring magnificent feats of architecture, palaces like Schoenbrunn and Hofburg Imperial are just a must-see when you visit Vienna.
On the other hand, he enjoyed New York because it was worlds apart from Bangkok. The skyscrapers topped the trip. Nothing comes close to the view from the top of the Empire State building.
Asia is every traveler’s dream
When it comes to vacations, Jear would pick Japan. Tokyo is even more beautiful when you travel with a loved one. Tokyo Disneyland was a great stop and definitely something to check out.
Jear would recommend South Korea to all the foodies out there. There are markets providing delicious dishes like bibimbap, bulgogi, dakgalbi and so on. Japan is also a good place if you are willing to spend a little more. Jear encourages us all to be adventurous when it comes to food.
For shopping, try Hong Kong. Admiralty, Central and SoHo are every shopper’s dream.
Beautiful Vienna is a must-visit
Ultimately, if he had to pick only one place to recommend to people, it would have to be Vienna. Life just moves at a slower pace in Vienna, and there’s art and music around every corner, making it just a beautiful experience.
What’s next on Jear’s bucket list
While Jear has been to many places, there are still others on his list. On his current list of places to travel to, he says he would like to go see the Northern Lights before they fade away. Mount Everest is also a dream destination for him and he hopes to make it there very soon.
