CHIEF OF FUN
Georgina loves travelling, especially to off-the-beaten-track places that are not on the tourist trail. In fact, many of her favourite places are unknown and the amenities are basic. However, being immersed in the culture, heritage, and practices of the local people has enriched her mind and soul. She has also been fortunate to meet a group of like-minded friends who are as adventurous as she is. These are kindred spirits who share her adventurous spirit and desire to experience all that the world has to offer.
She believes that through travelling, people learn to appreciate nature, respect different beliefs, tolerate different behaviours, and build confidence in themselves. With this in mind, she co-founded 3PlayGrounds in 2015, an online platform that connects like-minded adventurers across all borders. Her hope is that through 3PlayGrounds everyone will be able to fulfil their dreams of adventure and create many unforgettable memories together.

Asian travellers often think that the western side of the globe has more to offer – when in fact there are many unique and exciting travel experiences closer to home. Not only does travelling to near-by destinations save time and money, but there are also actually tons of exciting experiences that don’t even exist in Europe, America or Australia.
At ZafigoX 2019, Georgina and Lee Ling will be sharing about some of their most unique, exciting and adventurous travel experiences, all which can be found just in our backyard. From white water rafting in Malaysia and zip-lining in Laos to snorkelling in Indonesia and skiing in India – they have spent many years exploring the region and have discovered that adventure is waiting for those who dare to step out of the door. They will also tell you about other women who have managed to turn their passion for travel into a business. By leveraging on their trip organising skills, not only are they able to travel with a group of like-minded friends but they also are able to earn a side income.
The talk will also touch on how it is possible for you to put your passion for travel to good use and become an entrepreneur yourself, and some of the adventures 3PlayGrounds has planned for the next year.
