Alvin in the Grand Palace
Hi my name is Alvin!

President of Travelwise International, an avid world traveler and the founder of this site. For over 1o years I have prepared breath-taking trips around the world for myself and my clients. Being a travel agent, many of my clients have asked:

“Where do I find good travel deals?”
“How do I save money on flights, accommodation, and other big expenses?”
“How do I plan my trip?”
“How do I stay safe and healthy?”
“How do I maximize my time?”
“I want to travel more but I don’t know the first step.”


You are not the only one. I have helped thousands of people answer those questions and travel with more confidence and have prepared them for an adventure of a lifetime. This way, you can spend less time searching the Internet and being overwhelmed with information and more time doing the one thing you want to do: travel more.

We do things differently

What separates this website from other travel blogs? Unlike other travel websites, you won’t find sponsored content or paid trips here. Every place, restaurant, or attractions has been personally visited by me (or one of my guest columnists) and we pay our own way. We try to find the best options for every budget to help you pinpoint the experience that you want for you journey. We are devoted to help connect people to the world with the knowledge we have accumulated throughout the years.

Unlike other websites, we only feature companies we use – not ones that have paid us for advertising. Every company recommended is here because they are useful and used in our day-to-day travels.

This website is about showing you what it’s really like to travel the world and we refuse to promote websites, companies, restaurants, or services that don’t help you do that.

It’s my mission now to help traveler like YOU to realize YOUR travel dreams the same way I have learned.
