Ignite the Future of Travel
Travel is an education. Are you familiar with the saying, “The world is a book; those who do not travel read only a page”? Today most people travel as part of their daily routine. Not only does travel make us a happier person, it also opens our eyes and mind. More so, tourism industry is the pillar of the economy in some of the fastest growing countries where the industry always bring economic benefit to the citizens and improving their living standard. It has gradually become a main topic for city-lives and many innovative ideas are inspired by the demands generated from travelling, like Airbnb, Ctrip and Coachsurfing. While considering a new reform on travel safety, customized experience and green travel, the topic of travelling will certainly lead to many unprecedented possibilities.
