Cementing the company’s reputation as a leading provider of original and memorable travel experiences, Discover Asia provides travellers with insider access to the region’s most authentic, eclectic and diverse destinations through a range of quality, personalised itineraries which will even depart with just one passenger. The newly relaunched Discover Asia website, www.discoverasia.com.au , delivers enhanced useability, making it even easier for trade partners and agents to plan and book tours online.
“While Australians’ passion for travel is well documented, we’re seeing an increased push from savvy travellers seeking more intimate, immersive experiences where they can partake in the local culture and cuisine rather than just look at it or photograph it from a coach window,” said Peter Smith, Managing Director at McLachlan Tours.
“The hallmark of Discover Asia is the fact that itineraries can be uniquely crafted rather than bought off-the-shelf, with no group too small to enjoy our exotic experiences and personal attention. In fact, detailed itineraries can even be devised for solo travellers – a service that’s been significantly lacking in the industry to date,” he added.
Featured countries include Bhutan, Borneo, Myanmar, Nepal, Sri Lanka, India, Laos, Taiwan, Japan, China, Vietnam, Korea, Malaysia, Thailand, Hong Kong and Cambodia.
“Part of the philosophy of Discover Asia is to value our partnerships with travel agency partners. We are a preferred supplier with many of the nation’s leading travel agency groups, our friendly and knowledgeable reservations team can customise itineraries for clients to a huge range of destinations and streamline the booking process and our new Discover Asia website offers comprehensive information to communicate this exciting new offering to clients seeking a truly unique experience,” said Mr Smith.
