Managing Director's Blog, December 2018


Welcome to the December edition of our Asia World monthly newsletter.

As we come to the end of 2018, I wanted to remind you that Asia World offers some of the best destinations that Asia has to offer such as Thailand, Vietnam, The Philippines, Indonesia and Japan. Our 2019 tariffs are now ready so please let us know if you have not yet received details.

How about a quieter way to cruise near Halong Bay? Heritage Line is excited to announce the launch of their new ten-suite vessel Ylang plying the unspoiled waters of Lan Ha Bay, which is a quiet extension of Halong Bay. Details on request.

One of our ‘Hotels of the Month’ is the beautiful luxury island resort ‘Kupu Kupu Phang Ngan’. Phang Ngan island, also famous for it’s ‘Full Moon Festival’, is the ideal getaway tropical paradise. This stylish retreat offers an amazing sunset on the Gulf of Thailand with 5-star boutique accommodation.

Our featured Thailand product this month is the ‘Wahu Big Game Fishing Tours’ in Southern Thailand. The deep blue, clear waters of the Andaman Sea are ideal for game fishing and common catches around the islands include sailfish, wahoo, dorado, barracuda and multitudes of skipjack, long tail and Kawa Kawa tuna. We do recommend fishing in high season (November to April) when you are likely to catch the larger fish. Please see more information below.

Lastly, Indonesia is not just about the paradise island of Bali. Situated just a ferry ride away from Singapore is Bintan, offering the perfect getaway with its high-end resorts, world-class golf courses, and refreshing coastal atmosphere. There are lots of cultural sites, including ‘Senggarang’, the unique village on stilts. Asia World offers affordable packages to Bintan from Singapore, Malaysia and Jakarta.

Wishing you all the very best for the Season and a Happy & Peaceful 2019,
Stephen and the Asia World Team
