International award winning travel and lifestyle photographer, and sour candy connoisseur Anjo Miranda doesn’t just take photos, he freezes perfect moments to share with the world. His photography inspires thousands of people to promenade our planet, sharing his enthusiasm in celebrating our wonderful world. Anjo was not only one of AirAsia’s #SnapandWin Top 12 Finalists, but won Sony Mobile Photography #PremiumAustralia, as well as countless other accolades.
His baffling photography skills have taken him around the world, all around Asia, America and Africa, most recently Hawaii. In Hawaii he experienced some fearsome flooding and storms as infamous Kilauea volcano erupted – but that didn’t stop him from managing to capture the softer side of Hawaii even through the turmoil.
他独特的摄影技巧让他走遍全球，遍及亚洲，美洲和非洲，最近刚去过夏威夷。在夏威夷，由于著名的基拉韦厄火山爆发，他经历了一些可怕的洪水和风暴 – 但这并没有阻止他设法捕捉夏威夷的柔和一面，即使在动荡中也是如此。
Places Anjo has travelled to: Hong Kong, Macau, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, South Africa, United Arab Emirates, Vietnam, Mauritius and recently USA.
Travel tip: Always bring your camera! Take lots of photos and videos but don’t forget to just enjoy the moment. Try to visit the local markets as well to get a feel of the local vibe.
Anjo’s ultimate, dream trip: I’ve always wanted to go to USA’s big cities like New York, Boston, San Francisco and LA. Growing up in a heavily Americanised nation, the Philippines, I grew up admiring American history, sights, culture and food.
What came first, the travel or the photography? Was becoming a travel photographer your plan, or did it you fall into it?
I’ve always enjoyed design, arts and photography as a kid. Although I’ve only really gotten into Photography when I was able to afford a very good camera phone, my good old iPhone 4. The perks of having it as well was connecting with the creative community who share the same passion. This actually inspired me to learn more and to travel more.
How would you describe the work you do?
I mostly do Travel, Portrait and Lifestyle photography. This includes taking photos of the cool stuff I use, the pretty food I find, and of course sharing my travel adventures to everyone. I also enjoy taking portraits of people in different environments and I find joy in incorporating nature to the portraits I do.

How do you think social media has changed travel? How do you think Instagram has changed the face of travel photography? How has it impacted your career?
Social Media has been very influential to travel. As Instagram is one of the best visual online platform, it has become so easy to get inspiration to travel. You can pretty much check it anytime and anywhere and learn something about a place. I also love the social aspect of it as you can connect to other travellers or photographers to learn more about the place or even techniques in photography.
I am fortunate enough to be able to work with different brands and organisations through this platform. I have been able to travel for free and earn a little bit more though travel and photography and it’s just amazing because it doesn’t even feel like work when you’re passionate about something.
As a renowned travel photographer, what do you think is the most exciting part about traveling and photography?
I get the most satisfaction in sharing my travels. Photography is a great platform to express all the excitement I feel about travelling. Creators express themselves with how they edit and set a certain tone to their images and this whole process is something I truly enjoy. It’s also getting to interact with the community who gets motivated by my photos.
Photography equipment can be heavy – when you travel, what equipment is essential? What advice do you have for packing for your travel photography adventures?
摄影设备可能很重 – 在旅行时，什么设备是必不可少的？你为旅行摄影工具有什么建议？
At the end of the day, you have to make sure that you still get to enjoy your travels and not be bogged down with all the equipment you have to bring. On my recent trip to Hawaii, I brought with me three heavy lenses and my DSLR but I ended up just using my phone most of the time and I still managed to get really good photos. It also really depends on your style of photography. For travelling, if you really want to bring your DSLR, make sure you bring with you a wide angle lens to capture more of the landscape (eg. 16-35mm lens). There are even wide angle lenses you can get for your smartphones. I got the Moment wide-angle lens for my recent trip for my current smartphone.
What are your personal favourite travel photos you’ve taken? What’s your favorite travel photography destination? Why?
My photos from South Africa. It’s a dream for most people to be able to go to a safari adventure and that’s something I was able to accomplish in 2017. Being there with nature was absolutely life-changing and it’s definitely something I’ll never forget.
How do you approach travel? Is it something you prefer planning for, or going on the fly?
Travelling is expensive no doubt. It’s definitely something I have to save for. Booking in months in advance will definitely save you a lot of money may it be flights or accommodations. I do my own itinerary which helps out with the budget, instead of going with a package. Also, travelling with someone will make it a bit easier to plan out things.
What do you think makes for a good travel photograph and what tips would you offer to amateur travel photographers trying to improve their photography skills?
First thing to do is find your style. You can easily get inspiration from social media like pinterest, flickr, smugmug and of course Instagram. Go out there and shoot as much as you can. Find things that you enjoy capturing and develop your own style of editing.
You do not need an expensive camera to take amazing photos. Most Instagram superstars started their photography with their smartphones!
Never stop learning. As with most things, it’s always good to improve on your craft and learn more techniques. Learn the basics of composition as this will help you build up your individual style too. YouTube is a great resource to learn techniques. I still watch different tutorials regularly from some great photographers around the globe. Best of all, it’s free!
Finally, connect and collaborate with other creators. Not only will this be a great resource of learning and getting to practice photography, it is also a great way to get your name out there. I’ve been active on local Instagram community meetups (aka Instameets) both here in Melbourne and in Manila and I’ve met really good friends through the meet-ups as well.
To shellebrate 26 May World Turtle Day we are exploring our top 3 beloved divings spots in the Philippines. The Philippines is home to many of our terrific testudines and their beautiful aquatic abodes, with splendid initiatives to help conserve our marine mates too. Whether you’re a Dive Master or just want to dip your toes in, the Philippines is the perfect place to do it.
Although there are hundreds of incredible diving spots in the Philippines, we’re focusing on more sustainable and eco-friendly locations where you can enjoy yourself without having to worry about damaging any marine marvels. Some fantastic conservation projects we recommend getting involved or looking into are PADI’s Project Aware, WWF’s Coral Triangle, Marine Wildlife Watch the Philippines, People and the Sea, and Sierra Madre’s Aware Sea Turtle Distinctive Speciality (for the more experienced divers among us).
Within the diverse UNESCO world heritage Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park live an abundance of whales, dolphins, sharks, over 500 species of fish and of course, turtles! Regarded as a global centre of marine biodiversity, the Palawan located nature park stretches over nearly 100,000 hectares reaching depths of up to 100m. Spread across it’s pristine coral reefs are 17 official diving sports surrounding 3 islands.
Liveaboards (where you live in a boat to dive) are available to access the nature park, partnering with the Tabbataha Management Office (TMO) to promote sustainability and conservation. It’s important to note that The TMO does not operate commercial trips to the Park; the liveaboard have the required permits to operate. Staying in Puerto Princesa City you may also be able to locate accredited day trips to the Reefs Natural Park, as the reefs are only 150km southeast of the city.
Liveaboards（住在船上去潜水）与Tabbataha管理办公室（TMO）一起合作推广可持续发展和保护，你可以通过坐船进入自然公园。重要的是要注意，TMO不运营公园的商业旅行;船上有操作所需的许可证。入住Puerto Princesa City，您也可以找到经过认证的珊瑚礁自然公园一日游，因为珊瑚礁仅在城市东南部150公里处。
Turtle point dive site is located on the eastern side of Balicasag Island, Bohol. It features underwater caves about 60 to 75 meters down, in which a variety of turtles have made their lairs. Turtle Point was unsubtly named due to the fact that the place is a haven for turtles. Balicasag Island is a flat island 4 kms southwest of what is known as Panglao Reef. The whole of Island can be toured in a day, but to properly absorb the serenity the island has to offer we recommend spending more time there. The Island is fringed by a reef which is filled with countless schools of fish, coral and naturally, sea turtles.
Balicasag Island is one of many islands within the region of Panglao Island, and many explorers enjoy island hopping between them. Staying on Panglao Island and finding authorised tour companies to dive into the beauty of Balicasag Island is the best way to do it.
Not to be confused with Apo Reef, Apo Island is located off of Dauin, 25km south of Dumaguete City. The island is home to around 1000 residents and offers truly world-class diving. Due to this, electricity only runs from 6am-9pm so the island can retain it’s sanctity. It also has an abundance of interesting marine life, including marvellous marine turtles. Apo Island is one of the first protected marine sanctuaries, as the island’s leaders introduced conservation guidelines aimed to defend illegal and highly destructive fishing practices. The Philippine Tourism Board has named Apo Island as a “Top 100 Gem”.
Locally referred to as “the Washing Machine”, Coconut dive spot equally as thrilling as it is beautiful. Schools of fish often form bait balls, where they instinctually form tight formations together as a defence mechanism. Witnessing this is a once in a life time opportunity and not to be missed if possible.
Writing this up has tortoise so much, now we’re feeling inspired to go diving and help protect our turtle friends!
Gwendolyn Tan is a food loving social media queen, working in international social media management across Asia. Currently based in Melbourne, Australia and originally from Singapore, Gwen spends a lot of her time travelling the world chasing the newest flavours and sights from her favourite places.
Gwen currently manages the social accounts of some of her favourite food spots from around Asia, while working with a collective who offer some of Asia’s top food vendors a home to display what they’ve got to offer. One of these places is HWKR street food, located in the heart of Melbourne. Gwen’s current travel goals are set on exploring the land down under, and experiencing all Australia has to offer. From the vast open deserts, bustling laneways, award winning beaches and unique flora and fauna Gwen has a lot of travelling ahead to see all that Australia has to offer. We had a quick chat with her about some of her top suggestions for places around Asia to grab a bite to eat, her ideas on how travelling impacts creativity and how she thinks travel is changing for the solo millennial.
Places been: Japan, Malaysia, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Thailand, Korea, Indonesia, Singapore, Australia
Going to next: Probably Adelaide, Australia. Maybe I’ll go in February too because Fringe Festival is on then and they have some really incredible international acts I’d like to see. And pretty good food too.
Ultimate travel tip: Plan where you want to go in advance. It helps having an itinerary, especially if you’ve not been to the place and you only have a few days. It helps you build up the excitement too.
Favourite country in Asia for food: Japan has the best food for sure. I don’t really have a specific place in mind, but I suggest the fish market (Tsukiji I believe). One of the most interesting foods I’ve eaten was raw horse meat sushi. It tasted way better than it sounded.
As a creative person, do you find that travelling inspires you? Which destination have you found has inspired you the most and why?
Definitely. I love Japan the most. Tokyo was a great place with amazing food and culture. They are very advanced in technology and you get to learn quite a bit. I went to Akihabarai and there were so many interesting and new things. One night I went to a Robot cafe which my friend recommended I go and see. It was amazing how the people had choreographed their performance with the robots and got me thinking about the future of people and machines. Another place I thought was cool but bizarre was the maid cafe, where there are girls dressed as traditional western maid who you can take photos with and drink interesting teas.
Taiwan was another place I found which was very rich in culture and again, had crazy delicious street food. I went to the museum of strange things and I got to see really weird creatures like (alive!) three-headed turtles and fish with two mouths. These experiences are etched in my mind, which could become useful whenever we need some creative ideas for campaigns!
What advice would you give to anyone travelling to Australia for the first time?
Plan ahead and do a bit of research. Travel with someone who can drive too because you’re going to need it for all the road trips. Some of my favourite road trips in Australia are the 10 day trip around Tasmania, driving up the East Coast of Australia, and many of the beautiful drives in Victoria all within a couple of hours of Melbourne.
How has your experience moving to a new country impacted your view of the world and how you travel?
I would say I became more open. I feel that my ideas are more accepted here compared to my home country. Melbourne is a very creative city. It inspires me everyday, from its streets to culture to food. I am also more independent than I was previously. I feel like I can be more creative now and express myself better.
How do you think social media has changed the way young people travel? How do you think it’s changed the way we experience food when we travel?
Those travel videos on Facebook and Instagram Stories and posts makes people want to travel. There’s this travel bug going around when you see amazing and beautiful snaps of a certain place. We save these posts so we can revisit them or they could be a reference when travel to that particular destination. It’s kinda like a bucket list (I’ve done a similar campaign that saves IG photos where you can build a bucket list). For food, obviously we’d love to save those social posts we want to eat. #foodporn is one example of how people who love social media + food came about. We travel with our smart phones and updates our friends/followers almost instantaneously wherever we are. E.g. If I’m at the Grand Canyon, I want people to see that I’m there and share the beautiful sights. I saw a friend share her snaps on Grand Canyon a couple of days ago. I was so jealous!
What advice would you give you travellers who want to take more creative photos, see more creative places, or embrace creativity in a new way?
No advice. Just be yourself! Capture whatever you feel will tell a great story. If you want to experience wild and crazy things while you’re overseas, obviously the experiences you have will affect your capacity to take crazy photos (like the one I took when I went skydiving). If you’re into more calming, relaxing travel, then find your niche and stick to it. I think authenticity is important because we travel for ourselves, not the camera or the internet. If you’re having a good time, and experiencing what you want to, then just so happen to capture it in a photo – that’s going to be so much more valuable than trying to plan your trip around pleasing the internet.
Travelling with friends, or allowing yourself to meet new people along the way can often be the best way to discover new and creative places. If something is underground, it’s underground for a reason. The more you talk to people and explore, the more you’ll learn and discover. Also, travelling to places where you might not speak the language isn’t always an issue if you’re good at making friends or know how to use technology. I find that no matter where I go I can always find someone who can speak English and Chinese (I speak both) as well as the local language. We help each other out. Otherwise, the internet has really good translation apps, and oftentimes you can pick up on social cues to work out what’s going on.

It’s a lovely experience walking around a museum by yourself. You can move at your own pace, allow yourself some solitude to mentally engage with carefully curated artefacts, and welcome inspiration from introspection and self-reflection. Travelling can sometimes end up in a flurry of things to do, see and taste, without having the time to really take in the subtleties of the foreign environment you’ve entered. Museums can empower you with archives of knowledge, and give you the opportunity to pay respect to the extraordinary cultures and histories of thousand year old cultures . As noble peace prize recipient Orhan Pamuk put it, a museum should not just be a place for fancy paintings but should be a place where we can communicate our lives through our everyday objects.
To pay our respects to International Museum Day this Friday 18 May, we’re uncovering what we think are the most underrated Museums in South East Asia. We believe that the following historical archives pay due to the liven experiences of, and beauty of South East Asian cultures.
To best summarise Hanoi’s Vietnamese Woman’s Museum, the word “inspirational” would suffice. Although the Museum features the word “Women”, don’t be fooled into thinking it’s not equally fascinating and enjoyable for both men and woman. The gallery offers a fascinating introduction to the life of Vietnamese women, their hardships, achievements, and historical milestones which assisted in progressing Hanoi into Vietnam’s magical capital of today. Besides displays on everyday life, marriage and childbirth (which are far from banal) it also brings to life the lived experiences of women in the wars against the French and Americans.
Other rooms deal with contemporary phenomena like the roving merchants of Hanoi, and the cult of the Holy Mothers with Mother Goddess. The museum’s final floor features traditional clothing of women from each of the 54 ethnic minorities in Vietnam. Another floor exhibits a collection of agricultural and domestic tools used by women throughout the country. The exhibits in this one museum will begin to open any traveler’s eyes to much that is compelling and special about Vietnam.
As the largest religious monument in the world, it’s no surprise that World Heritage listed Angkor Wat is the most popular tourist destination in Cambodia and in everyone’s top 5 must see places to visit in South East Asia. The once in a life time experience can be quite overwhelming in the humid Cambodian tropics, crowded with millions of patrons each year, all trekking through miles and miles of fascinating temple, Fully absorbing all Ankor Wat has to offer can be an arduous if not impossible feat while immersed in the ancient temples. Take some time to explore Angkor National Museum before heading to Angkor Wat.
Angkor National Museum is an archaeological museum dedicated to the collection, preservation and presentation of Angkorian artefacts. The museums 7 galleries feature collections mainly dated from the Khmer Empire‘s Angkor period. There is an extra gallery dedicated to history of hundreds of years of Buddhism, with 1,000 Buddha images highlighting the religion’s significance in Cambodian culture.
Travel to one of the most-loved cities in Malaysia is always a good idea, especially when it has some of the best food, festivals, street art and museums. Some of these include the Upside Down Museum, Camera Museum and Ghost Museum, but here at chozun 途赞 we think one of the most underrated museum in not only Penang, but the whole of Malaysia, is Penang House of Music. Located in vibrant George Town, the museum hits the sweet spot between meticulous research and an engagingly fresh vibe.
Penang House of Music vividly display a plethora of traditional Malaysian musical instruments, holds jam sessions with respected local musicians, live sets, and has interactive exhibits to fully immerse yourself in rhythmic sounds of Malaysia.
Laos is the super chill capital of South East Asia, with awesome food, stunning sunsets, copious amounts of roaring waterfalls, and world-class hand crafts. Weaving, silk work and dyeing run deep in Laos culture, and The Ock Pop Tok Living Crafts Centre offers insights into these age old tradition. The centre is a cultural hub of artisans where Lao textiles truly come alive. Ock Pop Tok is a wider community of talented artisans, founded 18 years ago with 5 weavers and has expanded to provide employment for over 500 women in Luang Prabang and nearby villages. Fifty percent of the revenue from Ock Pop Tok goes back into the government and NGO supported Village Weaver Projects.
Set in the grounds of a thriving tropical garden on the Mekong, it’s the perfect place to absorb the fascinating culture Laos has to offer while learning more about this unique art form. Free guided tours are available where you can meet the weavers, immerse yourself within the artisan community, and even observe the silkworms. Unforgettable classes are provided for a small donation, specialising in traditional weaving and dyeing techniques. On site they have the Silk Road Cafe, where you can grab a coffee or refreshing sugar cane or coconut juice to. They’ll even pick you up in a tuk tuk and provide a scrumptious Laos lunch.
老挝是东南亚超级放松的首府，拥有美味的食物，令人惊叹的日落，大量咆哮的瀑布以及世界级的手工艺品。编织，丝绸作品和晕染技术等在老挝文化的深处运行，Ock Pop Tok Living工艺中心提供对这些古老传统的洞察。该中心是老挝纺织品真正活跃的工匠文化中心。 Ock Pop Tok是18年前由5位织工创立聚集具有精湛技术工匠的社区，并已扩展到为琅勃拉邦和附近村庄的500多名妇女提供了就业机会。 Ock Pop Tok 50％的收入回归给政府和NGO支持的Village Weaver项目。

The bars and breweries we recommend the most in the area include stock market based bar Wolf Market, Ce La Vie terrace, Ashley Sutton’s Iron Fairies Bar, 65 Peel for some crafty Hong Kong brew, and NYC’s iconic Hong Kong sister PDT (Please Don’t Tell). One of our favourite coffee spots in Hong Kong is Elephant Grounds, which is not only based near Central, but can be found near Admiralty station, Causeway Bay station and Sheung Wan station. If you fancy some creative flair with your caffeine dosage, Leo’s Espresso offers remarkable and instagramable 3D coffee art.

Central station is also only a 8-10 min walk from Peak Tram stop from which you can access the remarkable viewing points and hiking tracks at Victoria Peak. If you’re around Admiralty station, Peak Tram stop is even closer. If central station wasn’t offering enough already, you are only a brisk 10 minute walk from the city’s beautiful Zoological and Botanical Gardens. If you’re looking for a quick and easy bite to eat, Hong Kong is famous for it’s Cha Chaan Teng‘s, authentic no-frill eateries. Our top Cha Chaan Teng recommendation near Central station would have to be Lan Fong Yuen. Open since 1952, it’s no wonder the pork buns are to die for.
Situated in the epicenter of Kowloon, it’s no surprise that Tsim Sha Tsui station offers some of Hong Kong’s most iconic scenes within a 10 min walk. These include fantastic views of the Symphony of Lights (also accessible from East Tsim Sha Tsui station), Harbour City Mall and Temple Street Market. Tsim Sha Tsui Station also leads directly to Victoria Harbour where there are ferries across the bay, and incredible city skyline views.

If you’re in the mood for an alcohol free coffee fix, N1 Coffee & Co is one of if our favourite spots.

如果您喝完酒后，Eye酒吧的屋顶可以欣赏到城市的美景，还有精美的啤酒和鸡尾酒。如果您想要品尝无酒精咖啡，那么N1 Coffee＆Co就是首选景点之一。我们在尖沙咀站附近顶级推荐茶餐厅是Relax For A While – 他们的美味会让你好吃到流眼泪。
Causeway Bay is best known as the dynamic and fast-paced retail heart of HK. It’s dived between Eastern and Western quarters. The Western quarter offers luxury malls, department stores and boutiques. It’s Eastern end is filled with a bargain hunter’s dream where they can explore Jardine’s Crescent street market. If you’re in the mood for a drink with a view, Skye Bar is a must. If you’re into the cuter, quirkier kind of experience, Rabbit Cafe is the answer to the infamous cat cafes of Japan.
Causeway Bay station is also conveniently located a brief walk from tranquil Victoria Park 维多利亚公园 where they offer popular Tai Chai. Various meeting points are in close vicinity too, including Hong Kong Central Library. Our top Cha Chaan Teng recommendation near Causeway Bay station is Yee Shun Milk Company. We can never go past their traditional HK milk pudding.
Sheung Wan station | 上环站
Sheung Wan is in renowned for it’s chill vibes, street art, numerous cafes, eateries, bars and markets. Based west of the main business district, the station is directly connected to the Macau Ferry Terminal. Hollywood Road and Cat street Market, and Graham Street Market are the perfect places for antique shopping – we’re sure with some luck you’ll find treasure you never knew you even needed! The station is a 5-10 min walk from the local heritage Man Mo Temple.
上环以其冷静的气氛，街头艺术，众多的咖啡馆，餐馆，酒吧和市场而闻名。该站位于主要商业区的西面，直接连接到澳门客运码头。好莱坞路和猫街市场以及格雷厄姆街市场是古董购物的理想场所 – 我们相信，一定会有一些运气，你会发现你永远不知道你甚至需要的宝贝！该站距离当地传统文武庙有5-10分钟步行路程。
If you’re someone with a sweet-tooth, Oddies Foodies dessert bar offers some unique and delicious treats including liquid nitrogen cookies and cream bites! If you’re after a refreshing afternoon aperitif, The Old Man is one of your top picks. Our top Cha Chaan Teng recommendation near Sheung Wan station is Hoi An Café, which was incredibly founded in the same year as Central’s infamous Lan Fong Yuen. The buns and baked goods are a gift from the gods and the main reason we head to Hoi An Café.
如果您是甜食爱好者，Oddies Foodies甜点吧提供一些独特而美味的食物，包括液氮饼干和奶油！如果您想要清爽的下午开胃酒，The Old Man是您的首选之一。我们在上环火车站附近推荐的茶餐厅是会安咖啡厅，这个咖啡厅与中环著名的兰芳园同年成立。面包和烘焙食品是来自上帝的礼物，也是我们前往会安咖啡厅的主要原因。
Offering free wifi, navigating the MRT is easy as both Google maps and Apple maps plan your journey for you. Otherwise, you can grab an physical map from a local station or download the MRT App. You can also observe the in carriage displays that tell you what stations you’re approaching. It’s best to avoid the rush hours of 7.30am to 9.30am and 5pm to 7pm on weekdays as the MRT gets quite hectic. There are usually trains running very two to ten minutes between the hours 6am to around midnight or 1am.
The main options for using the MRT are buy grabbing an Octopus Card, Tourist Day Pass or Single Journey Pass. Hong Kong also has efficient bus, ferry and tram services – but for convenience we don’t think it gets better than the MRT. Other important trains in HK include the Airport Express Line, a special Disney Line, and a light rail network for the northwestern part of the region. Train directly to China’s mainland are also just a stone’s throw away!
购买八达通卡，旅游一日通票或单程旅行通票会为您提供便捷。香港也有高效的巴士，渡轮和电车服务 – 但为了方便起见，我们认为它不如地铁好。香港的其它重要列车包括机场快线，迪士尼专线以及该地区西北部的轻轨网络。到中国大陆也有直达车。
