Sawasdee ka everyone!

How are you? 

I am sure by now you have all experienced travel whether domestic or international. It’s a bit messy, isn’t it? From flight delays, cancellations, frustrated customer complaints, to dealing with insurance companies.

These are testament that our industry still needs the time to recover. Collaboration is certainly key at this point. It is so important to address customers’ issues with clarity and logic reasonings, therefore setting their expectations right. I know it’s easier said than done, but TOGETHER we will get there.

Destination Highlight: Bangtao Beach, Phuket

You don’t hear much about this beach, but it is one of Phuket’s longest beaches (spanning 6km in length). Bangtao is about 30 minutes’ drive south of Phuket International Airport. A little closer than the popular beaches like Kamala, Patong, Karon or Kata Beach. Hotels mostly occupy its southern end, while the northern end is generally quite and peaceful. A few small beach bars are dotted along its length. Bangtao Beach attracts those looking to leave everything behind and do nothing more taxing than reading a book. The southern end of the beach though has several beachfront hotels and beach clubs, resulting in a lively atmosphere in the evening. Bangtao remains one of the most family-friendly beaches in Phuket.
