Welcome to We Go with Anuar! My name is Anuar, and I am the founder of WeGoWithAnuar.com. I am an experienced traveler, photographer, and blogger passionate about exploring my country and sharing my adventures with others. Here’s a little bit about me and my journey:
Expertise and Experience
During my school years, I had the opportunity to reside in various regions of Malaysia, which allowed me to build expertise in communicating with individuals of varying levels. Following the completion of my Economy Diploma in 1989, I worked as a part-time staff member at a popular fast food restaurant chain in Kelantan state. Subsequently, I decided to pursue a career in the service industry, which led to my transfer to Kuala Lumpur City in 1991. At this time, I joined a special task force responsible for launching new outlets and providing training to new staff. After proving my capabilities in this role, I was promoted to a managerial position. During my tenure in the special task force, I had the opportunity to visit many exciting places throughout Malaysia.
In 2005, I decided to challenge myself by accepting a position at a small casual dine-in restaurant to gain more experience in the hospitality industry. I was responsible for monitoring and training a new manager to ensure that product and service quality was maintained at a high level. Although the second company had no advertising budget and relied solely on product quality, customer reviews, and word of mouth to attract new customers, it successfully captured a significant market share that established brands dominated. This inspired me to start my own business and use the expertise I had gained in the service industry.
In 2008, I decided to enter the tourism industry. At the time, most tourists who visited Malaysia relied on travel agents to plan their tour itinerary, which was often disappointing, as they paid a significant amount of money but did not receive the best tour experience. Therefore, I created the first website in Malaysia specifically for private tours to compete with established travel agents by providing tourists with customized tour itineraries tailored to their preferences.
The first three months of establishing my business were challenging, and at one point, I had only 70 cents in my pocket. Interestingly, during this time, I borrowed money from my ex-girlfriend, who has since become my wife and greatest supporter. However, things changed when Trip Advisor Forum and Air Asia started their services to Australia in the same year. Using the same principles of maintenance of my product and service quality, I established myself as one of Malaysia’s best private tour guides in less than two years.
Authority and Accomplishments:
Over the years, I have worked with various tourism boards, airlines, and hotels to promote responsible and sustainable travel. I have also contributed to several travel agents in Malaysia to help them promote their services. I was named one of the top TripAdvisor’s Traveller’s Choice awards (formerly Certificate of Excellence) by Trip Advisor.
Personality and Interests:
I am a curious and adventurous person, always eager to learn and explore. When I’m not traveling, I enjoy reading books about history and culture, listening to music from around the world, and trying new foods. I also love exploring new things, hiking and camping.
Testimonials and Reviews:
Don’t just take my word for it – here’s what some of my clients have said about me:
Mission and Values:
My mission is to inspire and educate people to travel responsibly and with an open mind. I believe that travel has the power to break down barriers and promote understanding between different cultures. I am committed to promoting sustainable tourism practices and to supporting local communities through my work.
