The Rise of the Emerging Market Traveler Sponsored This content is created collaboratively with one of our sponsors.
Despite stalled growth in China, Brazil and Russia, a wave of newly middle-class travelers from the BRICs and beyond will start visiting international destinations in the coming decades — dwarfing the numbers we’ve seen thus far.
The offerings are meager in the scope of how many activities and destinations are still not covered, but the secure payment system could appeal to cautious Western tourists looking to plan ahead.
The vacation activity-booking site Voyagin launches today in Tokyo, Japan, and it wants to make sure you can instead do things like going swimming with glowing plankton in Maya Bay, Thailand rather than getting stuck doing a bunch of stuff you don’t care about.
The website is very similar to Vayable — the names even sound alike — but Voyagin is specifically tailored to vacationers exploring Southeast Asia. Three hundred and fifty vacation activities are available for booking through the site in five countries: Japan, Vietnam, Indonesia, Thailand, and India.
The website targets western visitors, as well as Japanese visitors, looking to explore other parts of the region.
