Let‘s Meet the Team

Head Office - Bangkok, Thailand

In many ways Bangkok is the epitome of Asia. That’s why as an Asia tour operator we’ve made our headquarters here, where skyscrapers stretch up to relentlessly sunny skies, but ancient, modest tradition is the backbone of a vibrant, thriving culture. From this booming center of Thailand, we oversee our far-reaching travel specialists located in every corner of the beloved continent we call our home.

I‘ve made Asia my home for the past 17-years and during this time I‘ve been lucky enough to carve a career in travel which has allowed me to integrate my life passion into my work.

Pug Patcharaboriseth

Marketing Coordinator

Saigon & Hanoi Offices - Vietnam

Team members lucky enough to live in Vietnam know Hanoi and Saigon, the respective northern and southern counterparts, are really two halves of the same whole. While Hanoi is traditional and laid-back, Saigon is historical and fast-paced. Deciding between the two is tricky, but surely our experts will jump to boast that together the cities exemplify the cultural atmosphere that makes us all fall in love with Vietnam.

Tokyo Office - Japan

For our Japan staff, it’s a dream to work in travel, but to work as a travel consultant in Tokyo is a whole other neon-lit fantasy.

Tailored tours designed by our local experts unveil the tranquil culture of this quaint Laos city that only they know.
