Managing Director's Blog, April 2017


Dear Travel Partners,

Welcome to the April edition of our Asia World newsletter.

One of Thailand’s biggest festivals takes place this month which is ‘Songkran’, the Thai New Year water festival.
From 13-15 of April there will be national holidays and a lot of fun, so tourists should be prepared to get wet!
In the same vein Myanmar will also be enjoying their ‘Thingyan’ water festival from 18-21 April.

It was good to meet many of our partners at the ITB, Berlin and PATA Exchange in London last month. This month our Director of Sales, Olga Kovshanova, will be attending BIT in Milan from 02-05 April, so hopefully will meet with some of you there.

For activity lovers, the Philippines has wonderful opportunities. One of the world’s best scuba diving and snorkelling destinations is ‘Apo island’, while ‘Siargao’ is the surfing capital of the country. ‘Mount Batulao’ offers incredible mountain trekking and is only one hour from Manila. Contact Asia World for more details.

Lastly, Asia World will be celebrating our '20 years anniversary' in June 2017 and a new company logo will be on show for this landmark. Thank you for your kind support since 1997 and of course thank you to our wonderful Asia World team who have helped us to grow over the years.

Best wishes and a Happy Thai New Year
