Here at Jetset Times Inc…
Our goal to inspire you to travel, see and touch the world. Get up and go, and do it without doubts and reservations. If you can’t leave just yet, we hope to share with you the wonders that travel can teach us, and help you journey vicariously through our content. Travel isn’t always a vacation; instead, it’s an all encompassing lesson, one that teaches us new ways to love, enjoy and embrace culture, and give. Founder Wendy Hung grew up with the family motto that “traveling is the best form of education,” and this rings ever so true here at Jetset Times. Launched in September of 2012, Jetset Times is based in San Francisco, California.
Meet the Team
Having an insatiable appetite for travel is only a minimum requirement at Jetset Times, and whether the team is scaling the Aspens or crossing Great Walls, it’s dedicated to bringing readers the best content and recommendations from around the globe. Say hello to Team JST:
Wendy calls three cities home: Taipei, Paris, and San Francisco. From producing television news programs in San Francisco, hosting a Mandarin radio show, and headlining a music label for several years (she was a part of the inception of Beats By Dre Headphones), Wendy has found her next phase of life in Jetset Times. As a travel lover and speaker of five languages, she has lived in the U.S., Taipei, Tokyo and Paris. The idea of Jetset Times was born from her belief that people can become better versions of themselves when they embrace worldly issues, cultures, and people outside of our communities. “At some point, we all need to step outside of our own bubbles and get to know all the kind and beautiful people around the world. The most reflective and introspective point of views come from these moments.”x
