Dear Friends, Welcome to our ‘Experience Asia’ opening newsletter for June 2021
As you may remember, I was the Managing Director of ‘Asia World’, one of Thailand’s leading inbound travel companies over the past 23 years. Unfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Asia World was forced to close last year.
Experience Asia has been launched
After 30 years of working in Thailand’s travel industry and heading up ‘Asia World’ in Bangkok, I want to let you know that I have launched my new company ‘Experience Asia’ this year and we are looking forward to welcoming tourists again to Thailand, Vietnam and Bali. We believe our in-depth product knowledge means that ‘Experience Asia’ will have the edge over our competitors in terms of well-priced unique experiences. ‘Experience Asia’ will be ready to welcome tourists from October onwards, so I hope we can reconnect and have the opportunity to work together again, once travel to Asia re-starts.

Covid-19 safety in our destinations
As we are all aware, the Covid-19 pandemic has meant that countries around the world have been forced to close their borders, including Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam. Experience Asia, will ensure that our customers are offered services with their safety in mind. Hygiene will include daily deep cleaning of our transport, plus sanitizing hand gel will be available in all vehicles and there will be free masks for those who request them. We recommend visitors should be vaccinated with a recognized international vaccine in advance and should carry proof of their vaccination

My good friend Bruce Haxton, and his team, are accepting bookings now for their unique product.The one-day trip is one of the best experiences available in northern Thailand and the company also supports responsible travel. More information and prices are available from ‘Experience Asia’.
Hotel Update – ‘Como Point Yamu Resort Phuket’
One of our favorite hotels in Phuket, and now accepting bookings for July 01st 2021, onwards. Overlooking the Andaman Sea and Phang Nga Bay’s limestone outcrops, this chic hillside resort is an oasis of calm and luxury. Please contact ‘Experience Asia’ for the best rates.
We look forward to working with you and to welcoming your tourists to Thailand, Vietnam and Bali when our destinations re-open. The beaches are in perfect condition, mainly due to the lack of tourists over the past year and I can tell there is a huge pent-up demand for travel to Asia
Warm wishes and stay safe
