Swee Hang has worked mainly in Malaysia, with a some time spent in Singapore, the Philippines, and the UK. His own travels have also taken him abroad, the Scottish Highlands topping his list of favourite destinations. He’s keen on backpacking through different countries and will give (most) local fare a go.
