He is into Muay Thai and Taekwondo. He is a European destination specialist. His favourite place in the world is Positano, Italy. And his most recent holiday was to Malta.

While she has some iconic experiences ticked off her ‘To Do’ list including driving by the spectacular Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest caldera in Tanzania and learning Muay Thai in Thailand - Rhea is currently dreaming about where her next travel adventure will take her....Japan or South Korea? A part-time soccer player and full-time foodie, Rhea will always be up for exploring new brunch spots or jamming out at karaoke.

Helena

Helena Robers - Digital Marketing Manager 

Have you ever had the desire to explore something new? To pack all your belongings and travel the world? Helena was eager for new experiences, booked a one-way flight ticked, packed her bags and moved from her home country Germany to the beautiful city Melbourne a few years ago. With her passion for exploring and creating something new and exciting, she decided to study Marketing. She fell in love with everything around social media and started her journey at Traveldream. Since then, Helena is excited to update you about the latest travel trends. She's also looking forward to traveling around the world soon again - her next travel destination is Japan!

 

 Yim Kitiphong - Head of Sales (Asia) 

Yim (or you could try using his full Thai name if you have few minutes) was born & raised in the city of Angels. Yeah! Bangkok. A city guy who doesn’t eat veggies but has an interest in meditation for peace of mind. Although he’s travelled to over 30 countries, a stamp from any of the countries in the Americas is still missing from his passport. It might be due to his stingy nature. Yim & his wife would always search for the best deals (whether they exist or not) around the world when planning each trip. He thinks it’s time to use his 15 years' experience in travel to reveal those unbelievable deals to others that love discovering the world without feeling guilty. His next mission isn't necessarily travelling somewhere, but to create a Facebook or Instagram account so he doesn't keep all of his travel snaps to himself (seriously?!).
