Wanted: Experience hosts in Malaysia to film with us!

Tattle is pleased to announce that in early 2020, we will be releasing a new batch of videos featuring travel experiences in Malaysia! Each video will feature a different local experience host, running an experience for Tattle staff members who will be visiting the country soon.
