Inspire and help people see the world

While travelling opens our hearts and eyes to see the world, to many people, it can be complicated and fraught with disappointment and anxiety. At TripCanvas, we champion the mission to make travel planning as seamless as possible, so that travellers know what to do and what to avoid.

We inspire travellers by sharing destinations they never knew about, and encouraging them to embark on a road less travelled.

We believe in creating a world with effortless travel planning and free from scams, where travellers can go on a holiday without fear nor anxiety, so they can live life to the fullest.

Our workspace

We have a private office in WOTSO (a co-working space with many amenities such as the pantry, meeting rooms, gaming rooms), which is a conducive space to work in with spacious areas for brainstorming or even team-bonding. Our office is a 15-minute walk to KL’s most prominent malls like KLCC and Quill City Mall, with the convenience of public transport nearby.

What’s unique about our peers at TripCanvas?

Travellers first – We are all travellers at heart, and when we produce content, we always step into the shoes of our fellow travellers, and place them first.

We love failure – Every failure is an opportunity for us to learn something new. The numerous successful articles you read on our website are often the results of countless tests.

We do things that makes sense – We do not abide by fixed ancient rules, but by what makes sense and what is right and ethical.

Frictionless communication – We practice a culture of transparency among our team members. This is how creative ideas are born.

We constantly reinvent ourselves – The world (and digital media) is constantly changing, and all of us here at TripCanvas possess a DNA for change and a heart for adaptability. This makes us resilient.
