Chan Kit Yeng
is a Penang-born freelance travel photographer and tourist guide. Her photography work has appeared in several international magazines, websites and record covers, including Travel+Leisure Asia, Bootsnall and Southeast Asia Globe. An avid independent traveller, in 2012 she completed and photographed an overland trip from Singapore to Europe together with her partner, writer Marco Ferrarese. When she's not snapping pictures and playing with local kids in some off-the beaten path location, she can most likely be found hiking in Penang's remotest jungle thickets.
