Hello and Welcome to my website!
Discover with Timothy Tye
is a website I created to share with you the travel information that I have assembled over many years. I started writing this website in March 2003. Today, it has close to 30,000 pages, and is read by a quarter million people with 3 million pageviews per month. I have been tourist, traveler, trip organiser, tour leader, licensed tour guide, founder of travel agency and lecturer to tour guides, but what I enjoy most is to sit at home, in front of my computer, and continue to research and write this site, to share the pleasure of my discoveries with you.
This website is contained in two separate domains. All information related to my hometown Penang is housed in the domain Penang Travel Tips
whereas everything else is housed in this site, www.timothytye.com.
Updating this website has been a full time job for me since 2007. I celebrate 10 years of writing it full time on 1 November 2017. In a way, this site has formed a major part of my life, and it is with great joy that I am able to share it with you. I compiled out of my curiosity to know things, even things that may seem mundane to other people.
I have a yearning desire to find out what's on every street in every town. So I spend a lot of time walking towns street by street, taking photographs of everything in sight, and then later at home, finding out the information about every sight on my path. This is carefully documented with maps to show what is where. Although I have been doing this for over ten years, I have only managed to cover part of Malaysia and Singapore, but I continue writing almost every single day.
My web content has undergone several domain changes since 2003. In the beginning, the website was called AsiaExplorers. In 2008, I segmented the Penang content from it to create a new website called Penang Travel Tips
. Over the following years, I added all my content to the Penang Travel Tips website, including non-Penang content. On 1 September, 2017, I start pulling out my non-Penang content out of Penang Travel Tips and place it into this website, under my own name, Timothy Tye.
The content of my websites is still growing day by day. To keep you abreast of the newest pages and latest updates, I have a window listing the latest development down below.
