Travel awards honour Asian Trails’ family

Asian Trails Thailand won several awards at this year’s Tourism Authority of Thailand (TAT) Tourism Awards for its innovative products. I am so proud of our team’s outstanding achievements.

While Asian Trails focuses on product developments adapted to each country as part of our strategic initiatives, what made me happiest – besides winning four awards for our inventive new programmes – were the remarkable personal initiatives taken by staff members in product development and product enhancements.

They put their heart and soul into creating tours that are new, exciting, unique and fun. They place themselves into the shoes of potential customers, researching not just locations and sights that are new and different, but also how local communities benefit when customers buy our tours.

As part of our product categorisation, our ESTEEM principles were integrated into these tours (read more about our sustainable initiatives here) and they take customers to areas in Thailand that see few international tourists.

Our island discovery tour is different to the usual island-hopping programmes and it is a lot of fun discovering sights not everyone goes to. Our excursions to Nan and Rayong really go off the beaten track without needing to be categorised as physically challenging adventures. Our new North East programme is not what you would see in usual programmes. Please contact Asian Trails Thailand to learn more about these programmes as well as our other tours and multi-day excursions.

In addition to the TAT Tourism Awards for our new products, Asian Trails Thailand also won the ‘Best Travel Agency Thailand’ award at the 2023 Annual TTG Travel Awards. To win two awards in the same country in the same month is a first for us.

Taking into consideration the challenges of recent years, this demonstrates that we are still going strong. We have been blazing new paths in travel for the past 24 years and we will continue to do so!

We were privileged during the COVID-19 years to have unwavering support from our owners. They not only assisted us in navigating this unprecedented period, but also continued to invest in our team and technology. The results are evident today and the awards are testimony that our team is strong and that what we do is relevant to our clients.

Asian Trails’ eConnect is growing fast, offering immediate confirmation of hotels, transfers, tours and excursions throughout all of our destinations. Not only do we offer our own products at competitive prices and with availability, our system is connected to major third party players in the industry, as well as directly to hotels and channel managers – offering both static and dynamic rates.

Think of Asian Trails’ eConnect as a comparative platform where users not only see our rates, but also what other key players in the industry have on offer, hence they see at one glance the most competitive offers and availability. No service in our system is on request, all booking components are immediately confirmed.

We also offer API connectivity to relevant stakeholders who are interested in connecting to our system. Connections with tour operators and travel agencies through marketplaces such as TravelgateX are additional connectivity options that we can offer. Our tech teams will gladly collaborate with you on the best, most efficient and economical solutions.

Without you, dear friends and colleagues of Asian Trails, we would never have won these prestigious awards and gained recognition as one of the strongest DMCs in South-East Asia and China. My gratitude goes to each and every one of you and I thank you profoundly.
