Following Travel Curators’ acquisition of Dynasty Travel from JTB Asia Pacific late last year, Dynasty Travel has undergone a major rebranding exercise that involves the revitalisation of its headquarters in Singapore along with its range of travel offerings.

Believing that each travel customer journey begins from the moment travellers start planning their trips, Dynasty Travel seeks to reshape and enhance that experience as soon as potential clients step through its doors. The renovation to its headquarters on 35 New Bridge Road is designed to provide travel micro-moments for people who are exploring destination options and ideas.

To help drive inspiration, Dynasty Travel will bring bite-sized travel experiences to customers in its headquarters from the myriad of destinations where the travel agency operates tours to. This may come in the form of sampling teas cultivated by Ceylon tea estates in Sri Lanka, Japanese traditional flower arrangement lessons, South African wine tasting, or sampling Panamanian cuisine.

Additionally in its new curated itineraries, Dynasty Travel aims to leave nothing behind but footprints by setting travellers up in eco-friendly accommodations, supporting attractions that respect wildlife and cutting down usage of paper with the use of the Dynasty Travel app that replaces travel brochures.

Catherine Tioh, Dynasty Travel’s marketing lead, says that purposeful and meaningful travel has seen a rise after the pandemic, especially among millennial travellers. With this in mind, Dynasty Travel is leveraging connections from its parent company to give travellers a glimpse of the destination’s local community which is often not readily available to the masses.

“Instead of sea-to-plate dining experiences, travellers get to join local fishermen at sea to see how they harvest the season’s freshest catch, and this way, travellers get to learn a trade secret or two, and the travel dollars go toward supporting these hardworking local businesses,” Tioh explained.

Along with its rebranding, Dynasty Travel has unveiled one of its most ambitious curated, experience-led trips to date: a 19-day expedition to Antarctica, South Georgia and the Falkland Islands. In November 2023, a chartered expedition ship will take travellers to the South Shetland Islands and the Antarctica Peninsula, before sailing to the Falkland Islands, making zodiac landings at penguin rookeries, beaches and other scenic lookouts along the way.

This expedition and more of its offerings can be found on its refreshed website that displays a new layout focusing on travel ideas and inspirations.

Alternatively, travellers can use the new Dynasty Travel app that features interactive travel itineraries with live updates and travelogue features, and in-app chat with a concierge team for enquiries and on-trip support.
