My first Latin American trip started with Bolivia, Peru and Brazil. I was the first journalist in Hong Kong to introduce the now highly adored Uyuni salt pan. I immediately fell in love with the extensive continent. Being a travel journalist for the leading travel magazine in the city, I had the privilege to explore many exotic places including Kilimanjaro and Patagonia.
I have always had a strong interest in culture, animals and nature. I started my year-long journey to learn Spanish in Spain and Latin America. I stayed with local families to experience complete cultural immersion. I also volunteered in animal sanctuaries, taking care of monkeys and sloths. I was so in love with Spain that I lived there from time to time. My passion for the Latin culture led me to publish 2 books about Latin America and Spain.
Hoping to raise public awareness on endangered animals conservation, I went to Africa and volunteered for over half a year. Not only taking care of animals, I also helped in research and learnt about human wildlife conflict mitigation. Soon after I published the very first Chinese-language book about African wildlife conservation.
I have travelled to over 60 countries. To me, traveling is the best way of experiencing life. Let me share with you some of the best destinations in the world.
The Jacada team helped me plan my 10th anniversary trip to Chile. From the beginning of the planning process, to end of the trip, I felt I was being looked after by a team of professional planners that had a lot of experience in this field. I especially appreciated the in person visit from Riki Ueda, my travel consultant, who patiently went through the details of the trip time and again with me and wife. As we live in Asia, and have never been to Chile, we had a ton of questions - and all of them were answered in turn. In the end, we went into the trip with a sound piece of mind, and experienced everything we wanted without worrying about the administrative details. Needlessly to say the trip was amazing, and I would definitely look to work with Jacada again on my next exotic vacation.
Amazing trip to South Africa Jacada planned a wonderful flawless holiday for our anniversary to South Africa. It was our first time in Africa and we had a wonderful experience. Our planner Riki was amazing, she got to know our likes and dislikes, gave us numerous options on what we could do and designed a detailed travel itinerary for us. We were greeted straight from the plane when arriving in Cape Town and had a private tour guide and driver throughout our trip. We got to see many iconic sights in Cape Town and the Winelands and finished our trip glamping at the iconic Kruger Safari. Everything was luxurious, fun and planned perfectly! It was our first time with Jacada and we are already planning our next trip!
Our travel agent Riki helped us design a great trip to Myanmar! We had a wonderful time, with delicious food and beautiful experiences!
Overall very good (and positively surprising) itinerary with great pace! We stayed in nice hotels and ate great food! Very attentive guides in Myanmar with everything very well coordinated! Thanks for all the help and suggestions!
I work 24/7 and my job demands every ounce of energy from me. When I go on holiday, I dont want to be having to handle nitty gritty matters. I just want to rest, relax and recharge. That's why I go to Jacada. Jacada truly looks after your travel needs. Up to the very last detail you can trust that you will have a hassle free holiday that you deserve. Our experience with Riki and Joyce has been phenomenal and we will surely be going back to them for our next holiday. Keep up the good work!
