Dear Travel Partners,
Welcome to the June edition of the Asia World newsletter.
It was good to meet so many good friends and partners at last month’s TTM (Thailand Travel Mart) in Chiang Mai. The news, hot off the press, is that the 2018 TTM will be held in Pattaya during June next year.
Later this year the Royal Cremation Ceremony for our former King, Bumibhol Adulyadej (Rama IX), will take place from 23-29 October. This is obviously an emotional and important event for the Thai people, so we expect serious traffic conditions around the Grand Palace during this time. As the Grand Palace will not be accessible during this period, Asia World are organising alternative touring programs.
Lastly, I was recently invited to a party at the newly opened ‘Park Hyatt Bangkok’ located in downtown Bangkok. The property is stylish, sophisticated and a wonderful addition to Thailand’s deluxe hotel segment.
With best wishes from myself and the Asia World team,
