We are not only the first destination management company to specialise in Indochina operations, but we are also the first Asian based travel company to be owned by its employees. We believe that the creative drive of our management, staff and shareholders to succeed will ensure that our clients - you - will receive the absolute pinnacle of personalised service and product delivery. Ultimately our goal is to assist you in expanding your market share and growing your business. Your success is our success.
The Destination Asia group was formed in 1996. Experienced travel executives and managers saw a niche market opportunity for a travel firm that, being owned by its staff, could provide travel services solely responsive to the needs of the client and not the whims of any international corporate conglomerate. We were encouraged by travel partners in all parts of the world who valued our knowledge and dedication to creative product delivery. In short our clients and travel associates wanted a customer focused DMC... and we realized this could only happen if we, the staff, owned the company and created products we knew you wanted.
Destination Asia Thailand and Destination Asia Vietnam were the first units of the Destination Asia group to be formed. From these two initial successes Destination Asia Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Myanmar and Laos have evolved, further strengthening our association within the region.
Our company philosophy is simple. We will:
- Provide on-site services that are the very best available in the market in each destination and will never compromise on service standards.
- Deliver a level of service that exceeds our clients‘ expectations.
- Ensure the company’s products and services conserve the integrity of the environment, respect the cultural heritage of the community and wherever possible utilise locally-sourced components, thereby contributing to the community at large.
Destination Asia has individual employee shareholders and management teams in each destination. Within the high parameters of service standards set amongst the group, each Destination Asia office is responsible for its own creative product development, delivery and statutory requirements. This locally based management philosophy ensures that each operation is not only a good corporate citizen, but by virtue of its local character, offers the very best experience possible to you and your clients.
