About us – PlacesAndFoods.com:
Welcome and thank you for supporting PlacesAndFoods.com. PlacesAndFoods.com is a Family Travel and Food Blog. We (Wilson Ng & Rachel Ting) enjoy sharing our passion as we travel locally and also internationally. We also write about our experiences as parents with our two boys.
We work with tourism boards such as Tourism Authority of Thailand, Korea Tourism Organization, Tourism Akita Japan, Macau Government Tourist Office, Tourism Victoria, Tourism Tasmania, Tourism Australia, Tourism Malaysia, Tourism Malaysia Perlis, Tourism South Australia, Destination New South Wales and Singapore Tourism Board to promote their destinations. When we work with tourism boards, our goal is to deliver results in terms of stories and reach in both in our website and on our social media. Thus, we also keep in touch with most tourism organisations for future co-operation, engagement and promotions.
For the past few years, we travel to more than a dozen media trips with various tourism boards. We can offer more detail stats for our sponsors, advertisers and clients.
For brands, we were the online influencer for Sony Malaysia for their SONY ZV-1 camera. We also worked with Malaysia Airlines, Eva Air, Klook Malaysia, Klook Singapore, Handy Hong Kong, Skyscanner, Agoda.com, WD (Western Digital) Malaysia, AirAsia, AirAsiaX, McDonald’s Malaysia, Singapore Airlines, Samsung Malaysia and many more.
Engagements are very important in blogs and social media. In case you are wondering, why comments numbers are so low because my readers interact more on my Facebook Page. Instead of having the same group of bloggers commenting on our stories, we focus on real readers commenting on our Facebook Page with links to our story. You can see real time engagement which includes number of likes, comments and number of shares.
