about us

Our Founder

Hi!  I’m James.  You can call me Cambodia Jim.  I have been working and living in Asia for more than a decade and love it here.  I especially love Southeast Asia.  That’s why I created ASEAN explained, it’s so that you too can get to know and love this area of the world.

And now, I’m a man on a mission…

Our mission

Our mission is to give you the most important, interesting and up to date information on everything ASEAN, and make it especially relevant for those who want to live in or visit Southeast Asia.

If you are a retiree looking for warm weather and a way to stretch your pension, a digital nomad looking for adventure, or someone looking for a nice place to visit during your vacation, this is the website for you.
