Francis Hartnett who serves as the creative mind behind Variart’s new product initiatives explains that Western market’s travel priorities and tastes have matured and shape tourism and its spin off effects for the better. “Travellers these day’s are informed, want to learn more, they’re intrigued by regional tastes, customs, culture and language, they want to get in amongst the locals and see how everyday life is lived, then enjoy retiring to a great hotel which treats them to comforts they savour when getting away on a trip. This is what we deliver in our ’36 hours in’ packages’ and the response to these ideas really resonates – it has been fabulous!”

The “36 hour in” itineraries supplies travellers with advance ‘Insider’s’ tips on everything from street food and culinary ‘must-dos’, favourite cocktail bars and watering holes, lesser known or hidden sites and fantastic vantage points, galleries, shopping and more. They are designed for independent leisure and business travellers, women and corporate travel groups who want to depart from the ho-hum standard.

Francis explains the benefit in sharing local’s tips is to excite and whet the appetite of curious visitors. Guests on the ’36 hours in’ packages also get to enjoy either a day or night time orientation with Variart’s impressive stable of guides. They range from political correspondents for international papers, local up and coming fashion designers and architects, political scientists and historians. “Everyone one who guides has a love for what they do, they’re natural hosts and come the end of their time with our guests they’ll sit on and welcome you to a bowl of noodles or a drink in their favourite wine bar or microbrewery – we want people to get the best out of their stay and it’s all about good company and lot’s of smaller experiences that add up to lasting impressions and a memorable trip had.”

The Beijing “36 hours in” package has a few surprises in terms taking in favourite main stays in regards the Forbidden City but will then go on to hidden bunker networks and intrigues of Mao’s Beijing, or given the interests of the guest – it may include meeting local fashion industry movers and shakers or architects for truly insightful opinions in a town that lives what’s new in style in all forms. The Shanghai “36 hours in” package conjures up the decadence of the 1930’s boom town and the grandeur and extravagance of the city’s European heritage, the good and the alluringly seedy.
