About Placefu

We are Andrew and Yong, a husband and wife coming from the art and design background based in Singapore.

We love to explore aesthetic home, lodging, and insta-worthy cafe. While we were doing design research for our first Airbnb – Artsy Guesthouse in Johor Bahru, Malaysia.

We found out there are many unique and aesthetic lodgings throughout Malaysia. Some of them are not well discovered, which could be buried by the fierce competition on the Online Travel Agent site. Hence, we founded Placefu, a curated directory for modern traveller to discover aesthetic lodging and places.

Since then, Placefu started to curate lodging and places i-e cafes, each with their own uniqueness and reflecting the diversity of Malaysia’s wonderful culture. 

While Placefu may be a side hustle for us, we found joy in helping travellers to find unique or aesthetic places to eat, drink and stay whether it’s a a restaurant, a homestay, a hostel, or even a boutique hotel

So, we collaborate with the business owners around Malaysia, uniting a community who loves hosting guests and travellers as well as making their places different from the others.

Curated lodging and places for your travel experience

As a Airbnb host and traveller ourselves, we understand what our guests are looking for in their lodging choices. You see, even today we are still inspired by the amazing experiences that each lodging brings to their guests, hoping to give the same if not more to our own guests.​

As such, we want to make our curated directory that travelers can rely on to find their one-of-a-kind lodging for their staycation.

Here’s how the lodging and places are carefully curated

Insta-Worthy Aesthetics

A one-of-a-kind lodging experience can only be made with a similarly unique space aesthetic.

You can be certain that our collection are going to be Insta-worthy to say the very least!

High Rating & Review

Only lodging with decent amount of good ratings and reviews from the various platforms by their previous guests is chosen. We want to ensure that you will have the best hospitality experience.
