Travel experts predict more travelers Asia bound in 2011

Leading experts agree: travelers in 2011 expect genuine experiences and life-changing journeys, making Asia destinations like Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam
among the top choices for travel in 2011. Travel Indochina, a leader in
small group Asia travel, offers the best of the ‘real Asia’ with more
than 800 departures, and new Small Group Journeys that provide
authenticity and total immersion for even the most discriminating
travel junkies.
“Tourism in the New Year will see more travelers going to Asia to get a meatier experience in exchange for their dollar,” said Travel Indochina Co-founder Paul Hole.
“In a recent Oxford Economics study sponsored by Amadeus entitled, ‘The
Travel Gold Rush 2020,’ the growth in Asia-Pacific travel is predicted
to double by 2020, closely following Europe, the leader in overall
increased visitors.
“Today’s travelers aren’t shy about trying new things or getting
immersed in a new culture they’ve never experienced before. In fact,
travelers crave these experiential trips. Our journeys are created with
those things in mind, which is why we’ve specifically focused on
offering cross-border journeys, extensions and specialist trips to
satisfy those who expect the most from their time away,”
Hole added.
New Cross Border Journeys were designed with the
traveler’s mindset as the roadmap, maximizing each trip so travelers
can visit several countries while they are overseas. With nine journeys
to choose from, travelers can cherry pick their most desired
destinations to create the perfect combination between Cambodia, Laos,
Thailand and Vietnam. With this option, culture, history and cuisine
easily translate into memorable stories of adventure and exploration to
be shared for the long haul. Choose Cambodia & Vietnam Explorer,
Laos & Cambodia Experience, Cambodia & Thailand Revealed and
Sapa is a remote and fascinating area of Vietnam, about as far
removed from the most generic of tourist trails. Six days with the Sapa
Explorer will delight and surprise any visitor to the region with
stunning and sweeping views of the Ta Van valley from the glorious
mountains above. The minority villagers, known as the Red Dzong people,
await to welcome and offer local insights to new friends to the region.
Sapa Explorer pairs perfectly with Highlights of Vietnam, Trails of
Vietnam, Vietnam Insight and more.
No matter where in Asia travelers visit, there’s simply just no
better way to see the sights, enjoy the cuisine, meet the people and
get inside than being on the ground. Travel Indochina has perfected
taking the “tourist” out of tourism by offering Specialist Journeys
focused on cycling, cooking and niche destinations like the Indian
Himalayas or the Silk Road in Southern China. Cycling Cambodia meanders
through an ancient jungle path to the Angkorian Temple, on enchanting
rural back roads and quaint seaside towns like Kep and Kampot. For
those whose culinary senses lead the way, Vietnam & Cambodia
Culinary Discovery offers not only lavish meals at some of each
countries’ best restaurants, but also turns traveler into chef with
cooking classes and visits to local markets and the insider track on
where and how the best produce and seafood are sourced.
