4×4 World Explorer’s Thomas Foo – Biker, Adventurer, Free Spirit


Thomas ‘Tango’ Foo is a biker, off-roader, explorer, traveler, relief worker and entrepreneur, having spent over three decades crisscrossing all seven continents wherever his trusty Toyota Landcruiser will take him and his merry band of friends and fellow explorers.

Thomas’ life is an inspiring story of courage and heart, a pursuit of his passion for adventure and travel while spreading a message of peace, love and harmony all around the world as ambassadors for Malaysia and anyone else who believes in living life to the fullest.

Not for everyone is this life but for those brave enough to embrace it, the world and its pleasures are there, available, and for free.

(I consider myself privileged to have seen one small part of this wonderful world with Thomas and hope there will be many more.)

“He who is brave is free”
