Adam Tan
TTG Asia's irreverent scribe and social diarist comes out of retirement - for good. Something has to pay for his love for parties and a few stiff drinks. But Adam does not have to be the only one sharing interesting tales about the travel trade. If you want to share hot news, gossips, stories, pictures with Adam - anything that will send the industry twittering, pop him an email.
 

 

 
Nok Air's youthful knockers ADAM TAN, BANGKOK, SEPTEMBER 16, 2011
ON ONE hand we have the ultra feminists crying foul about the world being overrun by sexual stereotypes and gender discrimination, on the other we have blatant employment of airline stewardess as marketing proxies.
 
 
Obama's folly ADAM TAN, WASHINGTON, D.C., SEPTEMBER 2, 2011
TRUST American President Barack Obama to imply that travel agents have become obsolete.
 
 
Clowning around in Borneo ADAM TAN, REPORTING FROM THE JUNGLES OF SARAWAK, JUNE 7, 2011
SARAWAK will be hosting one of the most fun-filled conventions on the planet, when the World Clown Association Convention comes to Kuching in March 2013.
 
 
Around the Reef in 116 days ADAM TAN, REPORTING FROM THE GREAT BARRIER REEF, AUSTRALIA
FOLLOW our mystery man as he joins former Best Job in the World winner Ben Southall on a 1,600km sea safari along the Great Barrier Reef, in an attempt to retrace the route taken by Captain James Cook 240 years ago.
 
 
All in a shave's work for Branson ADAM TAN, KUALA LUMPUR, APRIL 21, 2011
HOW often does one get the chance to shave the legs of another human being, what more a Knight of the British Empire?
 
 
A royal Maldivian affair ADAM TAN, REPORTING LIVE FROM SUNNY MALDIVES, APRIL 19, 2011
WHAT better place than the far-flung Maldives, for Britain's future king and his lovely bride to hide away from the paparazzi and other prying eyes during a romantic spring holiday?
 
 
Two steps forward, one step back? ADAM TAN, REPORTING LIVE FROM PATA 60TH ANNIVERSARY & CONFERENCE, BEIJING, APRIL 12, 2011
AFTER sitting through a weekend of meetings and presentations, it would seem clear to anyone that what the trade needs is to find new ways of staying relevant, as travel audiences become younger and more tech-savvy, and its industry leaders start to grey. Which is why some delegates at a certain committee meeting could hardly believe their ears when they realised they were being sold the merits of a hardcopy travel encyclopedia ' a 900-page paperback with no illustrations, to be precise.
 
 
Oh, how times have changed ADAM TAN
WELCOME banquets of PATA conferences in the past were events to look forward to. Usually, they were held in venues that were only possible only if real strings were pulled.
 
 
Strangest request ADAM TAN
Technology may have made the world alot smaller, but it surely has not made geography experts out of many of us.
 
 
Stay awake for this class ADAM TAN
Understanding the woes of frequent business travellers, Hotel Okura Amsterdam conducted Jetlag Experience programmes teaching travellers how to combat jetlag, with the help of sleep researcher Eus van Someren from the Netherlands Institute for Neuroscience.
