Taiwanese travel portal launched in the Philippines to boost tourism

Published on : Wednesday, May 10, 2017

Taiwanese travelAsia’s foremost online tours and activities-platform provider KKday has just expanded in the Philippines due to its growth potential, particularly in trade and tourism industries.

 
To quote KKday Regional Executive Director for Southeast Asia Jim Chang, “We look at the Philippines as one of the most promising markets in the region, especially for what we do—e-commerce and travel.”

 
He said the Philippines is among the important markets for e-commerce, next only to two other member-states of the ASEAN—Singapore and Thailand, in high-percentage rates of online purchasing, Internet penetration and credit-card coverage.

 
Tourism-wise, Chang considered the Philippines as “the hub for travelers”, because of its connection with other countries in the region, as well as the comparable price it offers given the many low-cost carriers and budget-friendly tours and hotel packages available unlike other ASEAN nations.

 
The number of Filipinos travelling abroad is also “enormously bigger than the rest of their neighbours.” Chang said, “So it’s a no-brainer for us to tap this potential market.”

 
KKday was found in 2014 and, since then, has established offices in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Japan, Vietnam and Thailand. The Philippines is now the 10th market where it operates.

 
At present, KKday.com has over 6,000 deals on tours and other attractions from 53 countries and 170 cities worldwide. It offers services ranging from transportation to tours, local cuisines and experiences, among others.
