Welcome to the February edition of the Asia World newsletter.

Apologies for the delay in sending you our regular newsletters as Asia World (like the rest of the travel industry) have had to deal with the fallout with the ‘Coronavirus’ situation.
Although there are limited cases outside of China, we do understand the concern from the public and our travel partners, so please click on this link for an update for our destinations around Asia.

At the moment, more discounted hotel deals are being announced around Asia, so there are great deals on offer for hotels and experiences.
Please access the ‘travel agents’ section on our Asia World website for more information.

One of the most picturesque towns in Asia is Hue in central Vietnam which was the former capital of Vietnam.
The Hue festival will take place from 1-6 April when it will mark the 20-year anniversary of Vietnam’s first internationally-acclaimed event of culture, arts, and tourism.
The festival will showcase all that is cherished in Vietnam, featuring local cuisine, music and cultural shows. A visit can be booked via Asia World.

One of our featured hotels this month in Thailand is the ‘137 Pillars Resort’ in Chiang Mai.
Built 125 years ago as the headquarters of the Borneo Trading Company, the 137 Pillars House is a beautiful teak wood building that has been carefully restored to reflect its 19th Century origins.
Stylish and timeless, ‘137 Pillars’ is an ideal luxury retreat and a favorite for Asia World’s high-end clientel.

A destination that is a favorite of mine is the Philippines and it is perfect for island hopping.
Asia World are featuring a new 10 day touring experience which starts and finishes in Manila and includes whale shark watching in ‘Cebu’, the ‘Chocolate Hills’ of ‘Bohul’ and ‘El Nido’ for island hopping.
Please contact Asia World for more details.
