Raised in Hong Kong, Simon Ostheimer spent his formative years criss-crossing Asia on family holidays – exploring colonial-era Saigon, wandering the hawker stalls of Singapore; jet-skiing off Boracay, and eating street food in Penang – so it’s little wonder that he eventually became a travel writer. Based in Phuket, from where he pens articles for a slew of travel magazines and websites, including Travel & Leisure, Conde Nast, CNN, and just about every airline that flies into the southern Thai island, you’ll most often find him out exploring his island home with his young family.
