Australia’s leading Asia travel specialist, Travel Indochina, has released its 2012-2013 China, Tibet and Hong Kong Handmade Holidays brochure.
The 2012-2013 holiday brochure features lead-in price reductions to get 2012 off to a flying start, with winter wonderland hotel rates that are as much as 50% lower than high season prices*.
Based on the philosophy of ‘Handmade from local knowledge, handpicked by Travel Indochina’, the brochure features land only and flight inclusive prices for the travel essentials, and allows agents the ability to tailor itineraries for their clients’ specific needs.
Pricing remains competitive throughout the brochure, with all key products equal to or lower priced than that of competitors.
Travel Indochina Managing Director, Paul Hole, says that with scenery and culture that changes dramatically across China, each visit exposes something new and wondrous.
“Covering such a vast and divergent land, China is a country that deserves to be visited more than once, and in many different ways,” says Paul.
“China boasts one of the world’s most extensive and efficient train networks – whether in the comfort of the traditional soft sleeper berths or the newest high speed trains that whisk one across the country in record time. Either way, they’re a great way to experience the country. Alternatively, there’s the option of a Yangtze river cruise, including our latest offering the 5-star Century Cruises, for a completely different glimpse of daily life.”
