TUI - Tourism Union Indochina
TUI has been operating Small Private Group Journeys to Asia since 1993. From a base in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon) our idea is simple – escape the tourist traps to explore the essence of Asia’s history, culture, natural beauty and, most importantly, her people. A feature we pride ourselves on is our style of travel – we chose accommodation that reflects high quality, character and the best of location. Our travellers enjoy the combination of well-thought out itineraries, tasteful hotels, insightful Western tour leaders and local guides, and value for money. Our bases in the region ensure you will receive unparalleled on-the-ground support when you travel with us (with offices in Saigon, Danang, Hanoi, Siem Reap, Phnom Penh, Vientiane … and we’re still expanding).
Small Groups… Less is more!
Small group travel allows for flexibility and informality, which is why our journeys operate with a maximum of 15 travellers. Because groups are small, we’re able to accommodate the interests of our travellers while allowing plenty of opportunities for independent exploration. We offer the ease and flexibility of independent travel without the hassles.
As a traveller with TUI, expect to be captivated by all of the wonders of the country or countries you travel in. We do not operate sanitised coach tours. Your travel experience will be, in equal parts, what we do for you and what you do for yourself. One of the most striking features of our travellers is their spanersity. They span all ages, they come from all over the world and they bring with them a wide variety of interests and backgrounds. What they share is a love of Asia.
At TUI, we’re proud to stake our claim as a true specialist. Asia is all we do. We’ve made a bigger commitment to Asia than any small group travel company by basing ourselves in the region. Our four offices across our five destinations, employing both local and expatriate staff, enable us to stay ahead of everyone else. Our bases in Asia also allow us to offer the best combination of value, experience and timely on the ground support to our travellers.
Some travel companies equate expertise with a large raft of itineraries. Not us. The tours in this brochure represent the best of each country and will suit a variety of interests. Many travellers looking for a more extensive regional experience choose to combine two – or more – of our journeys. Each Small Group Journey is paced to give you time to develop familiarity with the key places we visit. We usually stay two or three nights in an area, preferring to explore places in some depth rather than constantly moving at the expense of your experience. For several trips, we offer both Standard and Deluxe options. Standard hotels are clean, comfortable and centrally located while our Deluxe hotels include some of Asia’s most historic and atmospheric accommodation.
Putting Something Back…
TUI supports the TUI Foundation and their worthy work to cure cataract blindness in the region, and the TUI Foundation in Ho Chi Minh City (Saigon), which assists disadvantaged, poor and disabled children through education. We also support other organisations throughout Asia dedicated to the improvement of education, health and living standards. Many of our travellers are keen to contribute to the countries they visit. This may be as simple as the interaction they have with local people – their efforts to build an understanding of cultural nuances, history or a simple exchange of stories with local people in a village, restaurant or school. Others are interested to make a monetary contribution to organisations active in the advancement of child welfare, education or health in the region they are visiting. Your tour leader or local guide will be more than happy to assist you in making contact with local organisations.
