Trafalgar is delving deeper into Asia with the introduction of three new destinations – India, Sri Lanka and Laos.
Boasting nine new itineraries – for groups of up to just 26 – and three new destinations, Trafalgar’s Asia 2017 program is its most comprehensive to date and features an expanded range of “Mini Stays” to provide agents with options to sell Asia’s most exciting urban centres to clients looking for an immersive city experience.
Functioning as standalone four-day mini breaks or the perfect add-on to a guided vacation, Trafalgar has introduced the new Bangkok Explorer which combines tuk tuks with Thai massages and reveals the secrets of Thai cooking, while the new Hong Kong and Macau Experience delves into these two former colonies through immersive sightseeing tours. Those looking to combine the buzz and bright lights of Tokyo with Japan’s serene Lake District region can find exactly that with the new Tokyo with Mt. Fuji mini stay.
“Travel to Asia has become an increasingly popular destination for Canadians and Japan continues to be a best-selling destination for our clients,” says Wolf Paunic, president of Trafalgar Canada. “With the value of the Canadian dollar going further in Asia, this continent should be on travellers’ bucket lists and clients can be rest assured that Trafalgar is by their side, stripping away language barriers and taking care of every detail so guests can be immersed in the glories and splendour of Asia.”
The new 13-day Leisurely Rajasthan with Mumbai is Trafalgar’s first itinerary exploring the riches of India with stays in cities such as Jaipur and Mumbai and the chance to see how #TrafalgarCares is helping Delhi’s street children through its support of the Salaam Baalak Trust. Trafalgar will also be heading across the Palk Strait on the new 11-day Wonders of Sri Lanka.
Also new for 2017 is the 10-day Leisurely Japan journey from Osaka to Hiroshima, extended 14-day Treasures of Thailand with the Golden Triangle itinerary and the 17-day Classic China with Yangtze Cruise and Chengdu exploration.
