MEET YOUR HOSTS:
Chong See Ming, her husband Sim, and her son Max (16), are an unschooling family based in Kuala Lumpur. Amongst her family’s many varied interests are rock climbing, music, art, gardens, flea markets, natural history, and stand-up comedy. Her family has been to the Merida Pop-Up & both the Guanajuato Pop-Ups in 2022, plus Penang, Normandy, and Seoul Pop-Ups in 2023!
Rachel & family sold everything in 2014 and never have looked back. They’ve been completely nomadic since 2018, homeschooling their three children while they travel the globe. Some of their favorite family travel destinations include Turkey, Romania, New Zealand, Spain, and London. Two of their three teens will join the Kuala Lumpur Pop-Up and will be 14 and 16 years old at the time. This will be their first trip to Malaysia and they’re super excited to reunite with See Ming & family (our 6th pop-up together!).
LODGING & NEIGHBORHOODS:
Many of our activities will take place in Kuala Lumpur City Centre / Chinatown areas, most will be between Perdana Botanical Gardens in the west and Petronas Towers in the east. There are a few options for convenient areas for accommodation:
One co-host family will be staying in the Robertson Building in the KLCC area (there are additional rental units available in this complex), the other host in Desa Park City.
Kuala Lumpur has MRT lines, LRT lines, a monorail, taxis, and Grab (the Asian version of Uber).
