An avid traveller and adventurous backpacker, Scott Tay has always loved going off the beaten path, and then sharing his unique experiences with others.
In 2017, he decided to turn his passion into a paycheck with Beyond Expeditions Singapore, a bespoke travel organiser. “We’re able to inspire more people to leave their comfort zones and immerse themselves in beautiful places,” he says, adding with a laugh, “This includes learning not to use their phones constantly while out with family!”
Specialising in destinations including Mongolia, Kazakhstan and Ladakh in India, Beyond Expeditions Singapore helps create exclusive experiences for all its customers. And, the testimonials on the site as well as its plethora of gallery photos go to show customers’ positive experiences on these adventures, which can be arranged for groups or solo trekkers. “We organise all of our trips 365 days of the year, even outside of the peak period,” Scott notes.
As someone who spends a lot of time outdoors, Scott can’t stop gushing about his new purchase from Morning Star Watch Repair and Service Centre at Queensway Shopping Centre. “I love my Garmin Fenix 5X Plus sports watch – it has impeccable functions, which has even supported me during a solo kayaking charity expedition in Mongolia for Down Syndrome Association (Singapore).”
