East Asia 2013 – Complete

 I’ll be the first to admit I like a great hotel when traveling. During Geeks Gone Global - Asia 2013, we stayed in Guest Houses. My first time and it was the best experience ever! Clean, safe, you meet so many difference people with different experiences. And the trip was not about the hotel, it was getting out and connecting with people. Faruq Hunter & GGG, say No! to 4-star hotels!

About The Excursion

The Geeks Gone Global East Asia Innovation Excursion is meant to uncover the aggressive work that is being done, has been done and is about to be done to build the innovative cities of tomorrow and today. We will start in New Songdo City, the smartest and most advanced city in the world and end in Auroville, India, a city where everything is up for innovation. A 16 day whirlwind innovation excursion where we will make long lasting connections, meet great innovators, connect, collaborate and above all have so much damn fun that you won’t be able to tell work and party apart. And with YouTube singing sensation and musician extraordinaire, Kawehi, performing in every country and riding along, you will be lifted off your feet from the start of the trip and not touch ground until a month after you get home.

NEW – There are several cost options available to make the excursion affordable for everyone.
