Some words about Henry Golding
“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the road less travelled” nothing more could describe Henry Goldings adventures in life better than Robert Frost’s “A road less travelled”.
Being of mixed heritage, his father is from England and his mother from the “Iban” tribe in Sarawak, Malaysia. With such a unique background, he has always viewed the world with equally eastern and western values.
Growing up predominantly in the UK, his return and love for Asia was of course inevitable.
Henry is a fully trained hairstylist turned Host/Travel presenter who resides in Singapore and Malaysia.
After relocating from London back in 2008 to Asia, his career as a regional television host has grown from strength to strength. After receiving his first big break on ESPN’s Castrol Football crazy, he found his true calling under a production called “Welcome to the Railworld” for Media Prima channel, 8tv – Nominated at the Asian Television Awards for best lifestyle programme 2011.
