Q&A with PretAirporter Travel Shopping Blog winner: Kim Dao

kim dao

“I’m just an ordinary girl who absolutely loves make-up, fashion, and traveling! I first started blogging in 2011 as a way of keeping track of all my amazing memories while vacationing in Japan.  I fell so deeply in love with the country and culture that I wanted to make sure I preserved every part of the trip.  Over time, I started attracting a lot of attention from readers who enjoyed my blogs.  This led me to create a YouTube channel where I share videos about my travels, makeup, fashion, and my everyday life.”

Kim Dao, as our overall winner for the PretAirporter Travel Shopping Blog Awards this month, there’s USD$300 heading your way as we speak. But before you nip off to book your next flight, we just have a few questions for you.

  1. What’s your favourite holiday destination?

Europe, especially France. I love exploring and seeing the beautiful architecture. There are just so many countries you can visit that are so easily accessible.

  1. Which airport did you last visit?

Copenhagen Airport

  1. What’s the best thing you’ve bought at an airport?

Water! I always have to have water on me when I board a flight because it gets so dry in the air. I always have to buy one after I pass through security!

  1. What’s the one thing you always take with you when flying?

I always have to bring a small skincare kit with me while flying. My skin is very dry and especially in the air it gets worse. I always make sure to carry a face mask and a small sample-sized skincare kit to help my skin stay hydrated.

  1. Which is your favourite airport and why?

Singapore Changi Airport. It is my favourite because it is so big and there is always something to do. I’ve had long layovers at Changi Airport before and I never get bored of the place!

We couldn’t agree more– dehydration can be a real issue when flying and who doesn’t love Changi?

Thanks so much for taking part, Kim and congratulations on winning. We hope you celebrate with another trip soon.
