TMBA 123 (LBP111) – South East Asia’s Top 6 Business Travel Destinations

TMBA 123 (LBP111) – South East Asia’s Top 6 Business Travel Destinations post image

Dan and Ian have been busy hopscotching across SE Asia the past couple weeks (Bali, Philippines, China, Vietnam) and have plans to continue the journey later in July with a motorbike excursion in Cambodia.

All this travel got the guys thinking about the places they go and the things they love/hate about each place. More importantly, how a location independent entrepreneur can live and work from these locations and still be straight hustlin’.

Just another morning view in Sapa, Vietnam

Where Are Dan & Ian’s Top 6 SE Asian Travel Destinations?

  • Singapore
  • China (Shenzhen & Hong Kong specifically)
  • Philippines
  • Vietnam
  • Bali, Indonesia
  • Cambodia

Listener Questions

  • Would I be better off focusing on one good niche  and building one site at a time (like the surfboard racks guy you featured) or try to create more of an all things trailers site and target all of these keywords? – From Nate
  • I believe that you have directly/indirectly made me decide to focus on my passion which you may know by now is health, more specifically raw diet.  THEN I read to stop trying to figure out what I love, but I already know. ALSO….How do I ensure that I get there by day 1000? – From Jeff

  • Hrmmm, no Chiang Mai or Bangkok?

    Coincidentally a dive bar in Chiang Mai is the first place I sang Take Me Home, Country Roads as karaoke with 2 other ex-pats and a tiny old Thai woman. And a fair amount of vodka.

  • Dan

    See you there in October!!! :D

  • Smurfs are monetizable… even movie was released about them few years ago. There might not be unmonetizable passion…

  • Dan

    Damn! Things are looking good for entrepreneurs :)

  • One of my listeners has been in the raw niche for several years and just recently made it to $2000 a month. I’m sure there is some optimization tactics she could take to increase that by a bunch, but still not an easy market to make a great living from.

  • Ho Chi Ian. Haha i spilled my coffee hearing that.

  • haha Yeah! Everything is monetizable, even being obsessed with worms (let’s say…).. you can grow and sell them, then sell advice on how to grow them… lol.. We are truly living in times of possibilities!

  • Dan

    :D finally can afford to pay some decent writers : )

  • Dan

    I agree with that, that’s a market for ninjas only ! doable, but tough.

  • Andrew

    Wow — I didn’t know about those awesome 6-year tax benefits in the Philippines. That sounds awesome. Thanks for sharing that guys.
