Okay, so reality bites:
Malaysia is the ultimate travel destination, overflowing with cultural diversity matched only by its phenomenal natural landscapes.

For many of us, traveling can be fun, relaxing and even life changing, all at once. But it can also be downright scary when your dream vacation ends up a disorganized mess just because you weren’t prepared enough. Ever wonder why apps like Airbnb and TripAdvisor are so relied upon and popular among the globetrotting community? Travelling to a foreign
In an age where pretty much everything can be done online, many of us tend to take matters into our own hands, even when it comes to making travel arrangements. But let’s face it, no matter how resourceful you may be at trip planning (DIY-style), good travel agencies will always be more reliable than your search engine. Planning a trip
Everyone loves talking about money, but how many people love talking about money in truly meaningful ways? I’m talking about the majority of us who should be schooled more on how to be responsible bearers of ‘currency’ (or ‘Ringgit’, in my local language). Those of us who don’t need more tips on how to spend it on our tenth pair

Designed to be easy-to-use with a solid community-based approach, there’s much to like about this welcoming alternative to traditional accommodation.

I was sharing with a fellow peer at Startupbootcamp Fintech Singapore’s Selection Days my thoughts on our journey. Let me use a metaphor to describe it clearly. If you’ve ever travelled to a new country, you’d know what it’s like to become navigationally challenged. From finding your way around MRT stations to making sure you get off the right bus
Our passion at CurrenSeek is to make traveling the world over more cost efficient and therefore way more enjoyable. To steal the famous quote from Malaysia’s biggest travel enabler, AirAsia, we would like to rephrase our mission as: “Now everyone can travel savvy!” Where would we be without the means to explore the world, not to mention the access to
Bitten by the wanderlust bug? With the value of the ringgit plummeting fast and the cost of living steadily rising, many of us may be rethinking our travelling plans. Keyboard warriors have all but taken to social media channels to express their disappointment with the depreciating value of our currency, but there is a faster way to get more bang
In our previous blog, we shared about our trip to Krabi and how it opened our eyes to the staggering disparity that exists in the foreign exchange market. In this post, we want to share about another actual experience during a trip to Mexico City in September 2014 while searching for the best currency exchange houses at the Benito Juárez International Airport.
We claim that CurrenSeek is the only app that can save up to 200% of your holiday cash. Sounds unbelievable, right? Well, this is based on an actual experience – a trip we took to Krabi in April 2014.
