Mary Justice ThomassonAn intrepid traveler by nature, Mary Justice Thomasson left the States after 2 years with an NBC affiliate to take up a posting with NBC at the Hong Kong bureau.

She spent 16 “glorious years” covering the incredible evolution of Hong Kong and Southeast Asia and started her own PR company in Hong Kong, MJPR Ltd, specializing in luxury travel and leisure.

Ten years ago MJ, (as she is known to friends), moved to Bali and has fallen in love with the island and it’s gentle  people and ways that are a far cry from her former city life.

MJ is the ten year resident editor of Luxe City Guides (  which The Times UK calls “The world’s coolest guidebook publisher” and is according to Vanity Fair “compulsory in flight reading”.

Luxe City Guides have achieved near cult status.

MJ also wrote the first edition Frommer’s Guide book to Bali and Lombok and contributes to dozens of publications.

Highly opinionated MJ is up to date on trends in travel and what’s hot and what’s definitely not.
