PHU QUOC: 15 October 2019 – Diethelm Travel Group (DTG), an award-winning inbound tour operator servicing Asia, has claimed the title of Asia’s Leading Destination Management Company 2019 in the 26th annual World Travel Awards. Two of the group’s regional arms have also received esteemed recognition with Diethelm Travel Thailand winning the Thailand’s Leading Destination Management Company 2019 title and Diethelm Travel Cambodia claiming Cambodia’s Leading Destination Management Company 2019 award.

Voted for by travel and tourism professionals worldwide, the globally recognised awards mark one of the industry’s highest international honours.

First founded in Bangkok in 1957, Diethelm Travel has grown to encompass thousands of exclusive offerings in 13 different countries across Asia – Bhutan, Cambodia, China, Hong Kong, Laos, Malaysia, Maldives, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Thailand and Vietnam – while establishing itself as the only DMC with its own comprehensive network of locations throughout Southeast Asia serving discerning mid- to high-level clients.

Along with setting high customer service standards, the company continually develops its Journeys of a Lifetime to enrich both agent and traveller experiences with customised service, bespoke itineraries, local connections and a commitment to cultural, communal and environmental sustainability. 

“Our teams across the continent continually serve as a source of inspiration and motivation for me thanks to their ongoing dedication, industry insight, innovative initiatives and individuality,” said Stephan Roemer, CEO of Diethelm Travel Group. “I take pride in helming such an established, well-trusted organisation and am honoured that the World Travel Awards has recognised our efforts as well. The fact that these awards were voted on by our international peers and travellers makes them even more meaningful as we keep people – from our valued agents and guests to expert guides and knowledgeable travel consultants – at the core of all we do.” 

“Special recognition is also deserved by our Diethelm Travel Thailand and Diethelm Travel Cambodia teams for their standout service in 2019,” Roemer added.

The World Travel Awards comes on the heels of Diethelm Travel Group also winning a 2019 PATA Gold Award and Diethelm Travel Thailand being named Best Travel Agency – Thailand.
