Malaysian Online Platform for Adventure Tourism Launches
Adventoro announced its official global launch on December 11. A new online platform that aims at helping people from anywhere in the world to discover and book adventure-based tours and activities in Malaysia, currently, the platform has more than 400 tours and activities located at various destinations in Malaysia such as in Kuala Lumpur, Langkawi Island, Sabah and Sarawak. Adventoro plans to expand its listings to include tours and activities around Southeast Asia as soon as in early 2018.
A mobile-friendly web platform, Adventoro features six categories of tours and activities: Island, River and Watersports; Wildlife and Jungle; Culinary and Gastronomy; Caving and Hiking; Cultural and Traditional; and, Sightseeing and Attractions.
Ken Lau, founder and CEO of Adventoro said, “We are very excited about the official launch of Adventoro. We want to make it easy for users to find and purchase desired tours and activities online using just a single platform. Aside from Malaysia people from America, Australia, Brazil, France, United Kingdom or from anywhere can hop on Adventoro.com at any time to look for a new adventure they would like to experience.”
Prior to the official launch Adventoro was on beta for a few months. Among top bestselling trips during that period were: White Water Rafting at Kampar River in Perak, Mount Kinabalu Trek Grand Adventure; Cameron Highlands Rafflesia and Mossy Forest Adventure; Taman Negara Experience; Bako National Park Overnight Adventure; and, Langkawi Kayaking at Mangrove Forest Reserve.
“We curate our listings and handpick tours and activities that fit into our niche of adventure. We are working to get our listings to be more than 500 in total for Malaysia by end of this year,” said Ken, who, besides running his business, also enjoys traveling domestic and internationally.
Adventoro caters to both individual travellers as well as groups such as companies that want to plan a trip for employees.
Other than the listings, Adventoro also provides Concierge Service so users can get in touch with its team for various reasons such as to make a special request for their trip and get more information.
Ken said, “What we’ve learned so far is that about 90 percent of transactions had at least one question asked to us. So it is important for us to give Concierge Service a priority.”
Users have options to contact Adventoro via email, telephone, WhatsApp or a web-based live chat.
“We aspire to grow Adventoro to become a leading go-to platform for adventure-based tours and activities in the diverse beautiful region of Southeast Asia. We start off with Malaysia and soon we want to bring on tours and activities around the region,” Ken concluded.
