OUR HISTORY

Asian Trails is all about its people and its zest to excel in delivering the very finest in destination
management services. Since opening our doors at the end of the 20th century, we constantly practice what we preach.

What made us who we are Today

Founded by Luzi Matzig, today’s Chairman and co-founded by Asian Trails’ CEO, Laurent Kuenzle, Asian Trails commenced its operations on 9 September, 1999, a prestigious date according to the Buddhist calendar. From our humble beginnings, the vision of blazing new paths in travel has been one of the main cornerstones in our daily operations.

Over the years, Asian Trails successfully maintained a business formula that can respond to the needs of our clientele using the best of local creative talent under the guidance of passionate, hands-on directors and managers. We believe that our entrepreneurial personnel are the heart of this tremendous success, the DNA of Asian Trails, since its inception.
