Klook Leads Asia-Pacific Travel in Their 8th Year - Lifestyle Asia

Klook, on their 8th anniversary, reinvigorates travel experiences in the Asia-Pacific region with a revamped system and new tourism board collaborations

With the pandemic seemingly in the rearview mirror, interest in travel is at a high. People are now on the look-out for the next best destination for a well-deserved vacation after pent-up stresses. That is why Klook, a go-to travel and experiences platform, looks to dedicate their 8th anniversary celebrations to keep up with the travel-hungry people by revamping their systems and building strong partnerships to encourage new discoveries and experiences.

Soaring numbers

The strong demand for travel is astounding once you see the numbers. Klook announced that it is seeing accelerated cross-border travel growth in Asia Pacific with one of its strongest quarters (over 300% QoQ growth), making them leaders in the region’s travel boom. This coincides with more than 140% year over year increase in searches on the platform. Not only has the company quadrupled its bookable services, destinations such as Singapore, Korea, Australia and Malaysia are also seeing strong recovery, with Klook exceeding its pre-covid cross-border revenue by 40% for its best performing markets.

Our neighboring countries seem to be everyone’s next bet, as Klook has seen an incredible surge in interest since Japan, Hong Kong, and Taiwan reopened their doors to tourists. Since Japan’s reopening announcement, the company has seen ten times increase in searches for Japan, with Taiwan, Hong Kong, and Singapore travelers driving this demand.

“As Asia’s leading travel and experiences platform, we are constantly pushing boundaries and striving to be the catalyst for tourism recovery in the region. Aside from exceeding pre-pandemic revenue in many of our markets, our strong 2Q demonstrates the strength of the brand and the industry in which we operate,” said Ethan Lin, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer, Klook. “In fact, as we celebrate our eighth anniversary, I’m proud to say that we’ve emerged much stronger and more resilient over the last two years, and the best is yet to come.”

More than just historical landmarks, Thailand is also home to a robust cuisine, made possible by packed farms and terraces.

Even before these 8th anniversary celebrations have started, Klook has been building this overflowing excitement for a travel resurgence over the last two years with key partnerships. They have also been collaborating with tourism boards to rebuild travel confidence and accelerate tourism recovery. These collaborations include creating engaging content to rekindle wanderlust, co-curating and co-developing new and unique experiences to cater to changing consumer behaviors, and creative regional marketing campaigns to encourage and capture consumers’ desires to travel again. Among the most recent partnerships formed by the company are those with the Singapore Tourism Board, the Tourism Authority of Thailand, the Korea Tourism Organization, and Tourism Australia.
