Asia Trip Planning Resources
I lived there and still go… a lot.
We lived in Hong Kong and still travel to Asia multiple times per year (in normal circumstances). Due to popular demand, I’m sharing my curated list of items that I personally use and recommend for planning and enjoying trips to my favorite continent. Some but not all links are affiliate links which means that if you make a purchase I may be compensated as no extra cost to you.
Didi is a rideshare app that I use in China. It has English translation, all types of cars, and you can link a foreign credit card to your account. It is incredibly helpful and easier than hailing a taxi.
Blacklane is our car service of choice worldwide. I have used them in Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore and elsewhere when I need a scheduled airport transfer. Use promo code 1WVK908F on your first Blacklane ride and we’ll both save 20%.
Grab is rideshare app that I use in Singapore. There are even Grab stands at places like Singapore Zoo so there is no question as to where you’ll meet your car.
