Work With Me
First of all, I’m so thrilled that you’re interested in working with me!
I’m a Malaysian-based content creator who is passionate about traveling independently and inspiring others to do the same. My mission is to dispel the myths that travel has to be super expensive and must be done in large tour buses.
As a woman of color from a developing country, I am living proof that travel is not only for the rich and privileged. Through my content, I provide valuable resources and empower my readers to make their travel dreams a reality, regardless of budget or travel style.
Since I’ve worked hard to build trust with my readers, I will only partner with companies whose values and products I personally stand by. I hope this page will give you a better idea if Ummi Goes Where? is a good fit for your brand.
Ummi Goes Where? features articles covering these topics:
Solo Travel – I travel solo 80% of the time, both domestically and internationally, and have been doing so since 2010.
Budget Travel – Most of my past travels were done backpacking style. Although I prefer more comfort now, I still like to score the best deals possible.
Adventure Activities – I’m always down to try new adventures, such as paragliding, white-water rafting, and jumping out of an airplane.
Hiking & Outdoor Activities – I’ve climbed some of the highest mountains in Southeast Asia including Mount Kinabalu and Rinjani.
Foodie Experiences – My travels mostly center around food experiences, be it food tours, market visits, cooking classes, or cafe hopping.
Cultural Experiences – Cultural experiences such as festivals, ceremonies, or even dance classes are usually highlights of my trips.
Quirky Bucket-List Experiences – I have a penchant for trying unique foods, experiences, and accommodations, like the ‘barn hotel’ in Switzerland.
Off-the-Beaten-Path Destinations – I’ve visited countries that not many people have heard of, like Rwanda, San Marino, and Liechtenstein.
In-Depth Destination Guides – All my destination guides are very thorough, detailing things to do, places to stay, and more.
Malaysia Travel Guide – I have a dedicated section featuring articles about Malaysia, aimed at both local & international tourists.

I have only been blogging since May 2019, but have accumulated a good size of dedicated audience who read my articles and follow me on social media.
My typical blog readers are working millennials who travel independently, either solo or with a partner. They are especially interested in adventurous activities, food, and unique travel experiences beyond the typical tourist attractions. In terms of budget, most of them are willing to pay for good, reliable services and products, but would like to get the best value for their money.
My blog is read by people from 160+ countries around the world, but the majority of my audience is from Malaysia, United States, India, and United Kingdom.
