Cosmos Adds New Tours and Beach Stays in Asia

November 15, 2013 Wholesaler No Comments Email Email

Cosmos has introduced new tours, new beach stays and earlybird discounts of $300* per couple with the release of its 2014 collection of Asian holidays.

The new Cosmos Asia brochure offers a choice of 12 different tours in China, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Japan, India, and now Sri Lanka, priced from as little as $105 per day.

Each tour has been designed to offer a rich cultural immersion, taking travellers into the real Asia while at the same time enjoying the best possible hotels and expertly arranged activities.

For the first time, Cosmos has introduced a choice of beach-side getaways in Phuket, Koh Samui and Goa, allowing travellers to extend their tour with a relaxing resort stay. They can be added to two of the most popular tours in the Cosmos Asia program – the 13-day Thailand Experience or the seven-day Golden Triangle in India.

Other add-ons available include tiger Safaris in India, expeditions to Ankgor Wat, a stay in a traditional Ryokan guest house in Japan and Hong Kong extensions on China itineraries.

Two new tours have been introduced for 2014:

  • China’s Cities of Contrast, seven days from $679* per person twin share (including discount). A week exploring two of the most dynamic cities in Asia, travelling by China’s futuristic high-speed train between Beijing and Shanghai. Highlights include the Forbidden City, the Summer Palace, the Great Wall and the spectacular cityscapes of Shanghai’s old and new quarters.
  • Grand Tour of Sri Lanka, 11 days from $2230* per person twin share (including discount). A fascinating circular route through Sri Lanka, beginning and ending in Colombo.  Highlights include the famous Sigiriya Rock Fortress, the ancient ruins of Polonnaruwa, the markets and temples of Kandy, hilltop tea plantations and the jungle wildlife of national parks at Minneriya, Horton Plains and Yala.

Cosmos Marketing Manager Australasia Christian Schweitzer said the Cosmos Asia program had grown significantly since its introduction to the Australian market three years ago.

“This year’s bookings have been more than double last year’s and we’ve reached the point where Australians represent almost a third of our Cosmos Asia travellers,” Mr Schweitzer said. “In some instances our groups are made up entirely by Australians, which reflects the fact we have a strong affinity with Asia and shows this market has excellent potential for future growth.”

Ranging from seven to 20 days, each tour promises the same value and care that Cosmos has offered in Europe and North America for more than 50 years.  They combine the ease and convenience of guided travel with all the colour and vibrancy of Asia.

The $300 per couple discount is available on all Cosmos Asia bookings until January 31, 2014, or until sold out. Other savings are available for additional bookings, Journeys Club repeat travellers and early payments.
