Lonely Planet author/Travel Tape Podcast host Robert Kelly – Part 1

Robert Kelly is a Lonely Planet author and freelance writer who for the past 20 years has been living in Taiwan and most recently Malaysia. His insights and knowledge of the culture, customs and diversity of East and Southeast Asia is vast. 

His most recent project is the audio podcast Travel Tape, a documentary style travel guide that dives deep into the cultures, history and stories of some of the most fascinating places around the world available-in the iTunes Store. I recently spoke with Robert about his new podcast series and life in Asia from his home in Kuala Lumpur.

Robert has also worked for the BBC, The Wall Street Journal, Taiwan Review, The South China Morning Post as well as several other travel publications. 

In part one of our conversation Robert talks about his time in Taiwan as well as adjusting to life in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. I also posed the question are there still places that haven’t been discovered yet in East and Southeast Asia. 

Next time on Far East Adventure Travel Part 2 of my conversation with Lonely Planet author and the host of the podcast series Travel Tape, Robert Kelly.
