Managing Director's Blog, September 2015


Dear Travel Partners,

Welcome to the September edition of our Asia World newsletter

This month marks the start of the Chinese (Taoist) Vegetarian Festival in Thailand and Phuket is the place to witness this colorful and unique spectacle.

The ritual parade includes entranced ‘Mah Song’ individuals having their bodies pierced with ceremonial swords (or daggers) or walking on hot coals - without feeling any pain!

Yes, it is bizarre and not for the squeamish, but it is certainly unique.

The World Travel Market (WTM) will take place in London from 02nd to 5th November at the Excel Centre. Asia World will be represented by Olga (Director of Sales) and myself, where we will be stationed at table number ‘20’, in the Thailand Stand AS400. If you are attending the WTM this year and would like to set up a meeting with us, please contact Olga at

Lastly, do not forget that Asia World have many cut price hotel deals on offer during this Summer Green Season. Feel free to contact us for more details.

Best wishes
