Hello and Welcome to Discover With Timothy Tye!

Discover with Timothy Tye is a travel information website covering every country in the world. It is my online encyclopedia of geographical locations. I created it as a hobby in March 2003. Since then, it has grown and has changed names a few times. Today, this website has close to 30,000 pages, and is read by a close to a quarter million people every month.

Thank you for visiting. I hope my website offers you the information you are looking for. I try to update the information in this website as regularly as I can. It is a continuous endeavour. What started as a hobby turned into a full time job in 2007, and I celebrate 10 years of writing this website full time on 1 November 2017. This site has become a big part of my life, and it is with great joy that I am able to share the information I have assembled with you. I compiled out of my curiosity to know things, even things that may seem mundane to other people.

I describe anything and everything with a physical location. If you operate a shop or business in Malaysia or Singapore, you may also contact me to add your shop into this website, and I will provide you your own page, with your product and services described in detail, and show your location on the map. Contact me here.

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.
