“Although, practically speaking, we are building a hotel brand around the persona of Louis T, I believe the true passion driving us is the travel experience,” said Jing Zhou, senior director of strategic planning at the company. The self-taught photographer, is also the master-mind behind this travel sharing community. “I started travelling at the age of 18 and haven’t stopped since. It’s quite addictive actually, once you know that thrilling feeling of seeing an unknown place, it’s hard to stop. Also when your state of mind is set to discover and explore, you’ll notice more nice things that are often neglected in our busy lives. It is a beautiful world that we live in, we want to capture the moment of beauty, big or small, remember and share it.”
