About us

They say that a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step, and that step begins here at Things To Do. When your heart pushes you to Paris, London, or Hong Kong — somewhere, anywhere — our pages will be your best guides. We write with the intention of making the most out of your every minute, be it by snorkeling in Bora Bora, visiting the temples of Bagan, or trekking to Machu Picchu. Plan your journey with our comprehensive resources regardless of your background, personality, or budget.

Our Mission

Travel is a life-enriching activity that everyone deserves to experience. At Things To Do, we aim to deliver the joy of exploration to people of different backgrounds, personalities, and budgets through our travel content. We want to encourage our readers to put themselves out there and to experience, rather than to just imagine taking a well-deserved time-off. We make that possible with our destination guides, news, features, and more, written by our well-traveled editorial team.

About the Author

Owen Redford is a travel writer currently based in Bangkok, Thailand. He originally hails from Seatlle, WA, where his parents met and fell in love. Since Owen was in his 20s, he has barely stayed in one place for too long, exploring Asia, the Americas, and Africa. Owen cannot recommend booking that flight and packing up enough to friends that would listen. With Things To Do, he now has a larger platform to share his passion for travel.
