Dear Travel Partners,
This week I have been in London for the WTM (World Travel Market) where I have met many of our partners from around the world.
The show was very good and we had a chance to showcase our latest product lines in Philippines and Vietnam.
Typhoon Damrey has hit Hoi An in Vietnam and has caused serious flooding, causing many hotels to be evacuated and tours to be cancelled. The worst is now over and most tours will operate again soon. Asia World will monitor this situation and advise if any of your clients have been affected.
Qatar airlines has announced direct flights from Doha to Pattaya, which will provide a well-priced beach stay option and this should start from December.
Lastly, the cultural North-Eastern Thailand region of 'Issan' (perhaps you might not know the area) has been named by CNN as one of the Top 17 best places to visit around the world. In my view, an accolade well deserved!
