Passion Passport’s community includes explorers, creators and storytellers from around the globe. Their travel experiences have challenged them, shaped their perspective of the world and given them a better sense of who they are.

Both online and off, Passion Passport offers the opportunity to connect with one another, to share those pivotal moments, and to travel with purpose.

Our Story

In 2012, I sat in a plain grey cubicle on the 55th floor of a Hong Kong office building at sunset. I looked out at the smoggy Hong Kong harbour, knowing that the 80-hour work weeks were going to break me if something in my life didn’t change soon.

I felt stuck. At 25 years old, I wasn’t living the life I had hoped for.

Our Values


The Passion Passport community creatively documents and shares their travel experiences with one another. Whether you’re a first-time traveler or seasoned wanderer, everyone has a unique story to share.

We believe that travel allows us to inspire each other through shared experiences and rich conversations. Passion Passport provides a space to bring these stories to life.


We don’t just highlight what the world has to offer, we feature the real people (like you) who are moving through it: what they’ve learned, what they’ve felt, and what they’ve created.

By closely following another’s journey through Passion Passport, we hope you’ll feel inspired to go outside your comfort zone, look at the world differently, and pursue your own adventure.


Our travels have intent, beyond fulfilling a checklist. We strive to move deeper than first impressions — to meet and understand real people and embrace unfamiliar places. We celebrate those who are conscious of the world around them and who understand the way they influence it.

Through cause-minded programs like TBLI and Passport To Creativity, we want to provide more opportunities to give back — both within Passion Passport and beyond it.


Behind all these principles, we value the “why”. We invite you to tell us what launches you on your path.

Share the moments you cherish: the people you’ve met, the things you’ve learned, the meals you’ve shared, and the moments you have difficulty putting into words. How has travel changed you?
