Why is the site named Go Away? 
Because on the train, every morning, everyone is secretly thinking, “When can I go away?”; “Where should I go away to next?”; “Can everyone just go away and leave me alone??”. Go Away is an apt name for a site that’s about inspiring you to get out there and explore the world around you.

Who should read Go Away?
Go Away was created for the young urban professional with an insatiable zest for life, and who longs to go out there and discover what the world has to offer. With articles written by insiders with an in-depth knowledge of major cities around the round, Go Away is the handy resource for travellers who want to cut through the smoke and mirrors for genuinely helpful tips they can use, whether overseas or right here in Singapore.

Notable partners of Go Away
1. Volkswagen Singapore 
Besides investing a sum of money into the site, the carmaker loaned Go Away 2 cars branded with the Go Away logo for 9 months. In return, Go Away created posts featuring the cars, events that allowed readers to engage with the brand, and did a video campaign starring Hossan Leong and 5 personalities.
