Steven is also a professional photographer and videographer. Not only has he conducted well over over seven hundred (700) exclusive video interviews with Ministers of Tourism from different countries, CEOs, MDs and other leading figures from within the travel and aviation industries, but has had his photography published in magazines and other media around the world, even a movie!

He has a passion for travel, reading, cycling, swimming and sports in general, as well as the immense benefits that sport tourism can bring to a destination, both in the short and long term.

Being a firm believer that 5-star does not always mean best, he loves to discover new places, hotels, ideas and concepts, and to share those finds with readers.

Never one to shy away from getting his hands dirty, he is as happy sat in the cold rain taking pictures of an event, as he is sipping the finest wines, whiskies and Champagnes in the executive floor of a true 5-star hotel.

Over the years, Steven has lived and worked in England, France, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong and Thailand.

In May 2017, Steven Howard lost his right eye in a freak accident in Thailand that almost killed him.

Future Changes to /

Over the years it has been pretty difficult keeping abreast with all the tech changes related to websites, especially in the mobile and social media side of the business. When we started, tech solutions such as WordPress, Joomla, FB and Twitter did not exist. Our goal at the beginning was to do the travel news alongside direct hotel reservations as well as useful tips on the best bars, restaurants and hotels etc from within Asia Pacific. We were amongst the first to do that, and were very successful. Now however, the direct hotel reservations have been cut entirely, and we no longer update the 'tips' side of the website as our main focus is travel news - both industry and consumer, but mainly industry - from airlines and aviation in general, to hotels and industry events. Our goal is to soon switch the domain from to just entirely so that there is less confusion. How we are going to do that, and what will be dropped added or changed is still to be decided. In the meantime, thank you for visiting and we hope you find the website useful.
