Pacific Delight Tours (PDT) has introduced a series of new programs for 2020 and 2021 in which its expertise in experiential tourism goes beyond the ordinary.
PDT is refocusing on building its brand with innovative new experiences to meet the demands of today’s travelers who are re-discovering the benefits of carefree travel planning, especially to exotic destinations, by traveling in small groups on organized tours.
Retro China itinerary leads the way with an inaugural offering in PDT’s new Boutique series to destinations that retain much of the ambience of China of yesteryear, before the skyscrapers, featuring courtyard-style accommodations such as the award-winning Linden Centre and a private hands-on Panda experience to learn about the challenges that modern-day China presents to their habitat.
Flavors of Southeast Asia journey will introduce travelers to such delightful terms as peranakan food, which many seasoned visitors to Southeast Asia claim is everything that everyone loves about Chinese food, rolled into one cuisine. Super-luxurious hotels in Singapore, Penang, Bangkok and Hanoi, plus meals at two Michelin-starred restaurants are among the featured highlights.
The Heritage of India itinerary goes beyond the Taj with an exquisitely crafted itinerary to Delhi, Khajuraho, Udaipur, Jaipur, Agra and Varanasi, featuring five UNESCO World Heritage sites. A home-hosted meal, high tea Indian style and voluntourism at a Sikh temple are but a few of the up-close and personal experiences on this journey.
And Beyond the Wall offers an off-the-beaten-path journey through China visiting Luoyang, Xian, Chengdu, Guilin and Yangshuo in addition to touching Shanghai, Beijing and Hong Kong. Highlights include Longmen Grottoes, in Luoyang, one of the three most important archaeological sites in China, and the rice paddy vistas of the Li River valley. There are also modern-day attractions including Shanghai’s M50 contemporary art district that contrasts greatly with the city’s most prized ancient art museum and 1000 Trees, one of the world’s most innovative urban housing developments.
