THAILAND

A NOTE FROM MANAGING DIRECTOR ROGER HAUMUELLER

Greetings from the high altitudes at the River Kwai! I had great fun trying out Thailand’s newest tree top adventure park. I highly recommend this activity for our individual travellers, as well as for incentive groups who like a slice of adventure on their holidays!

For health conscious travellers we have a new weight loss camp and health check up programmes.

Our Incentive team has worked a range of new CSR activities throughout the Kingdom.

For Bangkok visitors I would like to introduce the NANTA show, an excellent musical/acrobatic cooking show in casual surroundings in a very central location between Silom and Sathorn road. You will also find useful restaurant tips.

Happy Reading!

Roger Haumueller

DESTINATION INFORMATION 

BANGKOK LEADS IN MASTERCARD’S TOP 20 GLOBAL DESTINATION CITIES 2013

Thailand is extremely popular with tourists worldwide. This fact is recently reinforced by the Global Destination Cities Index released by MasterCard in the second quarter of 2013, proclaiming Bangkok as the city with the most international overnight visitors worldwide totalling close to 16 millions.

Bangkok is the first Asian city in this top rank position followed by London, Paris, Singapore and New York in 2013. According to MasterCard, the city’s popularity is mainly due to the fast growing air travel connectivity, as well its combination of excellent hotels, interesting tours, good food, friendly service, excellent shopping – all at very attractive of prices.

ASIAN TRAILS PRODUCT UPDATE 

TREE TOP ADVENTURE IN KANCHANABURI

Located in Home Phutoey River Kwai Resort, the tree top adventure park comes with breathtaking views of the River Kwai and scenic backdrops of the mountains. The new European system of continuous life line secures you from beginning until the end of the course without the frequent unclipping of carabineers. This means a super safe safety system to let you spend more time to enjoy the adventure, and less on the equipment! The continuous life line system ensures your safety at all times.

Come on and swing by on our “Monkey Swing course” with 30 exciting stations – zip lines and games over treetops and across the lake. Ride a sky bike over the canopy of the trees or swing from tree to tree like a monkey in the jungle. Take a break on our giant platform and lay down on our huge hammock to take in the cool breeze and shade. The highlight – a giant zip line stretching over the whole length of the lake. After you manage the last stretch our staff will offer you refreshments to cool down after this amazing adventure.

PALAPON – WEIGHT LOSS BOOT CAMP 

Palapon was founded by a German martial arts master on the principle of providing the basis for mental and physical harmony by blending scientifically proven Eastern and Western disciplines. It offers a specific weight loss ‘boot camp’ with durations from a minimum of two weeks up to 12 weeks including tailor-made meal-plans, exercises, fitness tests and body measurements. Accommodation is in simple but cosy single cottages. These programmes are recommended for people who have tried several diets and weight-loss regimes without success.

Palapon’s success rate of over 90% of their clients losing at least 5% of their body weight within the first two weeks speaks for itself! Although the programmes are tailor made and personal care is being taken by the camp owner/manager, these packages are very affordable compared to similar programmes in Europe or the United States.

MEDITOUR: 3-DAY HEALTH CHECK-UP PACKAGE

Bangkok has modern technology and equipment plus experienced doctors who are available for any situation. If an illness is diagnosed at an early stage it can be cured without much disruption to one’s life. This is the reason for Asian Trails designing a Meditour package to encourage holidaymakers to visit Bangkok and have a health check-up at our selected award winning Phyathai 2 Hospital. It will provide you with a designated health check-up and health screening programmes. The hospital is staffed with a multi-lingual team, who provides coordinated service on all hospital procedures during your visit.

NEW! NANTA MUSICAL SHOW

Nanta is a comic non-verbal musical show derived from the traditional Korean instrumental performance, “Samulnori”. It uses the kitchen as its background with knives and other utensils transformed into musical instruments in the hands of the performers. The chefs thrill the audience with acrobatic cooking shows, a surprise wedding ceremony and an exciting dumpling challenge. Nanta is a must see for foreign tourists, and highly recommended for an amazing culinary night out.
