Welcome to Our Destination Laboratory where ideas are transformed into authentic local and Out of the Ordinary Experience.
The Destination Knowledge Centre (DKC), one of the first of its kind in the travel industry, was formed with a couple of internal travel specialists, people with varied interests ranging from leisure holidays, art, food, pottery, music to painting, reading & writing. A bit of a maverick seekers’ club, if you may call it that! We have evolved into quite a laboratory over the last couple of years, catering to unique experiences for the inquisitive savvy traveller. The DKC with extensive local know how and expertise discovers, explores, travels and designs programmes that are for seekers of authentic and sustainable life experiences.
Our Explorers travel almost every month of the year covering hundreds of kilometers across the compelling stories, new knowledge, new skills and to connect with locals. We realise that “No matter how good or wise we are, locals always know the best kept secrets”. The locals are people from all walks of life, bankers, entrepreneurs, housewives, expats, academics, social workers, artists & collectors, designers; all passionate about their town or culture or are just interesting conversationalists! We call them “Friends of the Company” who are not necessarily from the travel business. Our friends love their mythology, history and folklore and brilliantly weave them into their narratives, the end result being a true local experience.
Travellers today are seeking a deeper meaning to what they do and how they explore the many facets of the world. Personal values such as responsibility, fairness, knowledge, sustainability and time are increasingly important to them. They are looking at experiencing this new way of travel and searching for deep insights into different traditions and cultures, enabling authentic encounters that can provide lasting experiences to them. Indeed the Future of Travel is “Experiences.”
