Adventure Travel Website Expanding in Asia
Published on Nov 6, 2013
On a mission to kill ‘meh’ travel experiences and replace them with ‘wow’ experiences, Aussie travel website AdventureHoney is expanding to more countries in South East Asia.
CEO and killer of all things ‘meh,’ Chris Ball, says: “Every person we save from having to sit on a ridiculous double-decker bus with a heap of tourists is a good day!”
Launching at the start of 2013 and focused exclusively on Thailand, AdventureHoney is an online marketplace for cool things to do in developing countries. As of November it’s started selling experiences in the Philippines, Myanmar, Cambodia and Laos.
From swimming with whale sharks in the Philippines to trekking around Inle Lake in Myanmar, to cycling around Angkor Wat, or becoming a rice farmer for a day in Laos, the company has an arsenal of adventures.
“Travelers have sites such as skyscanner to book flights and wotif to book accommodation but where do they go to find authentic, cool things to do when they arrive there? AdventureHoney fills that gap,” says the CEO.
The company is growing impressively. In less than 12 months, the AdventureHoney experiences marketplace fielded bookings from every English-speaking nation and, by the end of 2013, will sell tours and activities in seven Asian destinations.
