A JOURNEY OF INSPIRATION

Thi Kim HOANG,
The founder

Where it all began

The Sonasia Holiday story began in Vietnam back in 2012 when two young entrepreneurs, me and Huong HOANG realised that it was the perfect time and place to start a travel company. Shortly after, Sonasia Holiday was created with the vision of not only a travel agency, but also of a humanist project

Pushing Bounderies

From these modest roots, we quickly set about creating Vietnam’s most innovative and exciting tours, opening the country up to curious, dynamic travelers. Before long, we had gained widespread notoriety for our consistency and ingenuity, quickly becoming one of the leading tour operators in Vietnam.

Eager to continue our pioneering role of travel innovation in Asia, we began to look outside the borders of Vietnam to expand our influence. In 2015, we founded a partnership with a local operator in Cambodia and officially launched our second destination.

Utilizing this stable foundation, we moved into our developmental period, building off our already substantial expertise, knowledge and connections to become even more consistent, better-organised and more innovative.

Asian Expansion

By the turn of year five, we had become one of the leading DMCs in the region, just as intense interest in travel to Indochina began to take hold. In 2017, Sonasia Laos was launched, with offices in Vientiane. A year later, a partnership was created to launch our fourth and fifth destinations in Thailand, and Myanmar.

Future Prospects

Now, after a decade of setting up and expansion, we look back with the bold pride of what we have done. What a great journey we have made!

However, we understand that it is just the start, our humanist project is still at the very beginning of its journey. Our mission of promoting and protecting the beauties of Asia still has a long way to go!

Keep it tight! We are planning to go faster and faster

life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all

Though opened to tourism since the last 20 years, Laos still has many hidden places or gems that are waiting for the curious explorers. 

Xe Champhone Loop is one of the places.

Early September 2022, we made an Educ tour here, under the operation of Tetraktys Organization to explore the loop, which was an effort to promote the area to the international tourists.

We were impressed with what we saw and learnt here. The area is full of interesting nature spots, traditional culture, and hospitable hosts.

Below is everything you need to know about the area.

Stay tuned!

International travelers to Thailand will no longer be required to show proof of vaccination or ATK test results from October 1st, 2022 onward.

In a new move to attract travelers during peak season, Thailand is doing away with the requirement of needing vaccination certificates or Covid-19 negative results in the case of unvaccinated passengers. Additionally, those infected with Covid-19, but have mild symptoms don’t need to isolate from next month. The same applies to those who test positive but display no symptoms.

Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul announced these changes on Thursday after the National Communicable Diseases Committee (NCDC) had a meeting on Wednesday.

Instead of isolating those who have contracted the disease would be required to wear a mask, socially distance themselves from others and wash their hands frequently for the first five days. They also need to stay away from those who are immunocompromised and vulnerable.

Dr. Sophon Iamsirithaworn, deputy director-general of the Department of Disease Control, informed that since the present Covid-19 mutation doesn’t cause serious symptoms in most people, disease control measures can be relaxed.

National Security Council secretary-general Supoj Malaniyom added that the new measures are being put in place to help improve the economic conditions of the country.

“The primary aim will be to ensure the economy is back on track so people could earn their livelihoods once more,” he said.
