About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Taking people on tours to visit the world's Blue Zones, geographic areas of the world where people live measurably longer lives. Giving people the opportunity to live healthier longer, and more fulfilling lives by inspiring and facilitating lasting memories of the places we visit.

ABOUT ME

Hello there!

My name is Yang and I'm an Australian with a Chinese background who has lived in Melbourne for over 20 years and have also lived in Brisbane for 2 years. I was born in Shanghai and moved to Melbourne when I was 4 years old.

I have just finished 2 year trip around the world where I visited 35 countries across 6 continents. It was an amazing experience and life changing in so many ways.

Now I am starting a tour company called World Class Health helping people who have an interest in longevity to visit the world's Blue Zones, areas in the world where there is a measurably longer life span of the people living there. Locations will include Ikaria, Greece; Sardnia, Italy; Okinawa, Japan and Nicoya Peninsula, Costa Rica.

Before my travels I had four different careers. I have been an actuarial consultant, owned a tutoring business, been a freelance copywriter and owned a digital marketing agency.

PHILOSOPHY

Anything is possible.
