Author: Winnie So

Life is a journey, and Winnie So enjoys travelling with just a compass rather than a detailed map. In 2002, Winnie founded WANLILU Play Ltd, a bespoke luxury travel planner and the publisher of Little Cream Book, a series of travel gift books on various travel themes ranging from architecture to scenic drives around the world. Winnie considers her vocation to be that of a storyteller, whether it be through words or travel experiences. She believes the best travel experiences (and stories) are filled with the wonder of discovery, possibilities for transformation and moments of inter-connectedness that underscore our common humanity.

When she’s not working, playing, blogging, tweeting, facebooking or twining (she’s always looking for social enterprises to add to her Goodwill Shopping twine), Winnie works on her book, No Clue Yet, a journey through the realms of philosophy, psychology, cognitive and affective neuroscience, spirituality and whatever inspires her to ponder the question: What does it mean to be human and happy?

Winnie has served on jury panels for restaurant lists such as The S. Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants, and is a committee member of the Hong Kong Ambassadors of Design.

Winnie has a BA from Bryn Mawr College in the US and an MBA from INSEAD in France.
