Carla Murray, Director of Marketing Communications

Raymond Cua is a gem in the world of food and travel. During his visit to the Richmond Region in Virginia, he skillfully captured the essence of our city’s vibrant food scene, rich history and unique attractions through his high-quality and engaging content including blog post, Instagram reels, Facebook posts and a YouTube video.

Raymond’s passion for culinary exploration always shines through, and his attention to detail, creativity, and storytelling truly bring the flavors and experiences of Richmond to life for his audience. In addition, his professionalism, adaptability, and genuine enthusiasm make him a valuable partner for any destination looking to showcase its unique offerings.

I’m pleased to recommend Raymond Cua to anyone seeking excellent social content that will inspire and tantalize food lovers and travelers around the world.


Visit Hampton (Virginia)

Mahogany Waldon, Media Relations Manager

We were absolutely thrilled to host Raymond in Hampton, Virginia, in October 2022, and our excitement only grew as we witnessed the magic unfold throughout his visit. The Hampton Convention & Visitor Bureau had the pleasure of collaborating with Raymond in what can only be described as a remarkable partnership.

From the moment Raymond arrived, it was evident that his passion for travel and genuine enthusiasm for exploring new destinations was infectious. We were deeply impressed by the caliber of his work and his commitment to showcasing the beauty and uniqueness of Hampton to his audience.

Throughout his time here, Raymond delved into all that Hampton has to offer, immersing himself in our vibrant culture, rich history, and, of course, our community-focused organizations and restaurants offering delectable seafood cuisine. Together, we embarked on unforgettable adventures, indulging in local seafood delicacies and experiencing the fascinating world of aquaculture firsthand with an ecotourism group and the Virginia Tech’s  Agricultural Research and Extension Center.

His keen eye for detail and captivating storytelling effortlessly captured the essence of Hampton, leaving his followers captivated and inspired to embark on their own journeys. It was truly a pleasure to witness his genuine appreciation for our city and to collaborate with such a talented and professional individual.


Tourism London, Ontario

Natalie Wakabayashi, Director, Culture & Entertainment Tourism

Working with Raymond Cua (Travelling Foodie) has been a wonderful experience. His genuine enthusiasm for exploring, incredible knowledge of food and the food industry and willingness to immerse himself into any experience captivates our audience and showcases our tourism offerings to his loyal followers.

All of his content continues to be successful across our channels and we see great engagement with unique audiences each time we partner with Raymond. We’re already looking forward to hosting him again soon.


Meet NKY (Northern Kentucky)

Dot Crane, Senior Content Marketing Manager

Raymond Cua’s content is some of the best we’ve received from any of the influencers and travel
writers we worked with in 2022. His photos are gorgeous and his writing is excellent.

We have a unique region to promote. Northern Kentucky sits just across the Ohio River from Cincinnati so travellers to our “Cincy Region” experience both the southern charms of Kentucky and the cultural attractions of Cincinnati all in one trip.

Raymond is one of the few who really “got” that and his engaging write-up of our NKY and Cincy area captured it. He is a pleasure to work with and we recommend him highly.


Visit Tampa Bay (Florida)

Kevin Wiatrowski, Media Relations Manager

From the moment I met Raymond at a Visit Florida event in Toronto, I know I wanted to work with him. His energy, drive, and adventurous attitude made him a perfect fit for exploring all the great new flavors our chefs in Tampa Bay are cooking up.

Those chefs definitely got the attention they deserved – this guy can eat! No “just for the ‘Gram” foodie pics from him. He took a comprehensive approach to both food halls we visited, sampling as many across the diversity of offerings. He conquered on of our most popular dishes — the traditional meat-filled Cuban sandwich.

But he was about more than food. Raymond engaged with the diverse range of activities available in the destination – from paddling through an ancient cypress forest to strolling the Tampa Riverwalk through the heart of downtown as the lights of the city twinkled to life as sunset.

He was easy to work with, curious about everything, and straight-forward in his reporting. We hope to work with him again soon.


Norfolk Tourism (Ontario)

Ted Willey, Business Development Supervisor for Tourism & Economic Development

We had a great time hosting Raymond Cua during his tour of Norfolk County. He was an enthusiastic participant and good sport in all of the activities we lined up for him including zip-lining, axe throwing and a wonderful foodie cycling tour!

Raymond was engaging with all of the businesses we visited, asking lots of questions; and, his social media posts were awesome. Great photography is certainly one of his signatures and his attention to detail was second to none.

We were very excited that Raymond posts on multiple platforms covering both our culinary scene as well as the travel and experiential aspect of the great adventures available in Norfolk County. We covered a lot of ground during his stay and he didn’t miss a beat.

Interaction from Norfolk locals as well as his audience was fantastic and we received great kudos from all of our partners who offer great support to visiting media and bloggers.

At the end of it all he captured the fun that can be had in our area and was able to cover a wide spectrum of experiences and activities unique to Norfolk County.

We were glad to see all his posts were widely circulated by the people that follow our social media channels as well as his own. Capturing such a wide audience of people that don’t know much about Norfolk County was a huge plus and we all appreciated the time that he was able to spend with us!
