Australia’s leading Asia travel specialist, Travel Indochina, has released its latest Handmade Holidays brochure dedicated to Thailand and the company’s newest destination, Burma (Myanmar).
The Handmade Holidays range allows agents to tailor itineraries specifically to their clients’ needs.
Travel Indochina Managing Director, Paul Hole, says the brochure highlights the best of Thailand as well as the exciting addition of Burma.
“Exotic Burma, which has been mostly hidden from the outside world for many years, is now able to be experienced,” says Paul.
“Travellers can explore this unspoilt land with the peace of mind of our Asia experience and expertise. We offer sample itineraries to help plan a Burma adventure, with accommodation, touring options and special experiences through Yangon, Mandalay, Bagan, Inle Lake, Ngapali Beach and the pilgrimage site of Mt Kyaiktiyo/‘Golden Rock,’ as well as two river cruising options on the Irrawaddy.
Burma truly offers the adventure of the Asia of old.”
Accommodation options range from lovingly restored British colonial properties to intimate family-run hotels amidst the ruins of ancient Bagan, from bungalows built on stilts over the waters of Inle Lake to tranquil beachfront villas overlooking the Bay of Bengal.
In addition to ten pages dedicated to Burma travel, the brochure has 34 pages of touring and accommodation options for Thailand, including two new unique properties in Bangkok; the ‘Ariyasom Villa’ built around a 1940s home with the charm of a bygone era with all the creature comforts of the modern world, and the sophisticated and small ‘The Eugenia’ which is an oasis of tranquillity.
Also new for 2012 is Travel Indochina’s range of boutique and luxurious beach resorts in Trang, Koh Kradan, Koh Samet, Koh Phangan and Koh Tao.
The brochure features exceptional value for money, with significant reductions on many Thailand touring programs and highly competitive hotel and resort rates. The ‘Hintok Tented Camp package, for example, was $634 per person twin share, and is now only $433 per person twin share; a 31% saving per person.
