From Zero to Two Million Page Views Per Month

Founded in 2012 with our first site Tokyo Cheapo, our practical and friendly editorial style has won over the hearts of travelers and expats alike to quickly become the most popular English language website about Tokyo. Since then we’ve launched 3 more websites – London Cheapo, REthink Tokyo and Japan Cheapo, with Hong Kong Cheapo to be unveiled January 2019.

As of December 2018 our network traffic is just shy of 2 million page views and 1 million readers each month. Listen to co-founder Chris talking with the Tropical MBA about the back story, and read co-founder Greg’s interview with Stuff.nz
