China Eastern Airlines announced that it will work with Kunming-based China Comfort Travel to offer a new travel package focused on the Greater Mekong Subregion (GMS) which includes Yunnan province and the countries of Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.
The new travel package, Pan Asia Channel, will be focused on domestic travelers flying into Kunming on China Eastern. Luxury buses will take travelers to Xishuangbanna in southern Yunnan. Mekong River cruises and flights to Southeast Asian cities on China Eastern will be coordinated in the port city of Jinghong in Xishuangbanna.
Wintertime - when the generally hot GMS region is at its coolest and the majority of China is quite cold - is expected to be the busiest time for the growing number of GMS travel packages. The March/April dry season will likely see tourism dry up with the Mekong.© Copyright 2005-2021 GoKunming.com all rights reserved.
