My Asian Travel Blog
I'm Tony Gilbert from Brisbane, Australia and I've been a Senior Contributor on TripAdvisor since 2009. For the last four years I've been blogging about my travels and now I've partnered with TripAdvisor and Google Maps to present a very personal perspective on my most loved travel destinations in Asia. I'm still growing this Asian travel blog, but I have covered many of our travels in China, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Malaysia and Indonesia already. I'm adding more every week and other travel authors are starting to add their experiences too. I'd love to hear from you about your travels or answer your questions in Comments or on Twitter or Facebook. To start browsing, choose from the menu categories above or select from one of the locations featured opposite.
