20 Years A Passion for Travel

March 27, 2014 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , , , , ,

December 1993, two young Dutchies working from a small desk in a shophouse in Pathumwan, Bangkok, marked the humble beginnings of Khiri Travel. This year we’re celebrating our 20th anniversary!

We’re very proud of what we have been able to achieve and are thankful to our agents who have been an important part of this history.

Khiri celebrates this important milestone by giving back. Last week our CEO and CFO donated a check of THB 500,000 (USD 16,000) to Operation Smile Thailand. The check allows for 20 children to get surgery for their cleft lip or cleft palate. For most families, this is a very costly operation and access is out of reach.

Besides, this weekend Khiri celebrates its 20 years anniversary with all Khiri Travel staff. It’s going to be a unique event where our 100+ employees from six countries and with 14 nationalities gather in the vicinity of Bangkok. The festivities will include team-building activities, good food, a beer, and dance.

Please accept our apologies for a delay in any email replies Friday-Sunday. For emergencies during this period, the known-numbers can be reached. On Monday 31 March we’ll be back in the office with a fresh spirit.
