About Me

Hi! My name is Michael Taylor, I live in Hong Kong, and I’m a self-described Accidental Travel Writer.

I’m a life-long aviation buff, a helpless foodie, a committed oenophile, and an enthusiastic swimmer, cyclist, and Muay Thai practitioner.

I like to read, study foreign languages, and follow sports.

And there’s one more thing I like to do: I like to travel! That’s why I call myself the Accidental Travel Writer. This all just happened by accident. It wasn’t really planned …

Look my shoulder as I explore Hong Kong, wander the world, and root for my favourite teams!

About My Blog

The Accidental Travel Writer is a global travel blog with an Asian accent. My niche is luxury travel. I focus on Southeast Asia.

Because of the pandemic, I haven’t done any traveling for three long years. But I’m making my first overseas trip, which will be to Thailand in the spring of 2023.

Published an average of three days a week, my blog chronicles my personal travel experiences when I am on the road. When I am not traveling, I focus on what’s happening in Hong Kong.

I review hotels, food and beverage outlets, day spas, sightseeing attractions, travel guides – the list goes on.
