Asia Hopping

We know Asia.

The Asia Hopping team lives the Asia-hopping life. We’ve been everywhere you want to go. As the real experts in this part of the world, we guide you to authenticity and local connection. Our editors and developers do all the hard work so you can spend less time researching and more time enjoying.

Ingrid Cudia


Ingrid has traveled the world with one bag and a laptop. She brings to Asia Hopping a decade of experience in multi-platform publishing. This poshpacker—a backpacker with more money and better clothes—is currently working on a guidebook about Manila, scheduled for North American release in 2014. When she's not chasing authentic bahn cuon, she trains for her next run.

Joan Garcia


When not living vicariously through fictional characters, Joan is making her own adventures and meeting interesting three-dimensional people along the way. She has stayed in luxury hotels and run-down hostels, and has the uncanny ability to pack a suitcase in five minutes. Joan is planning trips to different places, hot and cold, perhaps eventually finding a second home.

Rina Lappay


A traveler on hiatus, Rina has explored key cities in Asia, Europe, and North America. She plans to return to London and Paris, spend a week in Japan's Kansai region, and explore more beaches in the Philippines (in no particular order). When she's not busy with her geeky hobbies, she tries new sushi restaurants and takes pictures. She can't live without coffee and her camera.



Our team of local experts are influential travelers, bloggers, photographers, and industry specialists who share Asia Hopping’s goal of showing the real Asia to the world. Interested? Let us know
