Steven Howard - Editor / Founder
Our editor (and founder), Steven Howard, worked for two of the
largest banks in the world before entering the travel industry in
Asia over 20 years ago.
Stevenwas Publisher of ASIA Travel
Trade magazine, the oldest travel trade magazine in Asia, and
Frequent Traveller magazine - the leading corporate consumer travel
magazine in Asia, found on airplanes, in newsstands across Asia,
in airport lounges, hotels and more.
He has also worked as Group
Publisher of Panacea Publishing Asia, managing well known regional
such as Mix! - Asia's Creative Meetings Magazine, Business Traveller China and Business Traveller Asia
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
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 ASIATravelTips.com /
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
www.asiatraveltips.com 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.
