5th birthday of MakeYourAsia!
On July 14th, 2021, exactly 5 years have passed since the founding of MakeYourAsia! Our exciting adventure started back in 2016, when a group of three friends decided to share their Southeast-Asia-related passion and experience, aiming to bring the region closer to their homeland – Central and Eastern Europe. To achieve this goal, they founded our company – MakeYourAsia. Even though they were all Polish citizens, they only met on the other side of the world – in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam – their second home.
They were Łukasz Kozłowski, Adrian Zagrodzki, and Grzegorz Łaski. After a year, one more friend - Sławomir Wilski joined their ranks. We have come a long way since then, and now our team includes 16 people based in countries such as Thailand, Cambodia, Poland, Czechia, and Israel.
Our first endeavors were strictly tourism-related, focusing on designing and organizing tours to Southeast Asia for the Polish and other Central and Eastern European nationals. We have gradually expanded our offer with services pertaining to conferences, trade fairs, business trips, and incentive tours.
In 2018, we have created an independent team in charge of establishing business cooperation and enhancing business relationships between Poland and Southeast Asia, thus becoming a trustworthy partner for the companies considering Vietnam as their potential market.
During the past 5 years, we have been cooperating with many state agencies, such as the National Center for the Support of Agriculture (KOWR) and Marshal’s Office of the Greater Poland Voivodeship, as well as Polish and other Central and Eastern European companies.
Our operating network covers 5 Southeast Asian countries, namely: The Philippines, Singapore, Cambodia, Malaysia, and Vietnam.
Currently, there are over 60 original tour itineraries in our offer. We have organized over 300 tours around Southeast Asia, taken part in few dozen conferences and seminars, and earned the trust of hundreds of satisfied clients and partners.
But there is more! We are a member of some of the most influential business and industry organizations, such as the Central European Chamber of Commerce (CEEC), in which our CEO – Lukasz Kozlowski is a current member of the board; the Society for Incentive Travel Excellence (SITE); the European Chamber of Commerce (EUROCHAM); as well as the Business Executive Network. During the last five years we have also appeared in numerous publications and TV shows on such channels as Polish National Channel 1 (TVP1), Vietnamese Television Company Channel 10 (VTC10), and one of the biggest Polish broadcasters – TVN (a part of the US-based Discovery Inc.). Editorials written by our team regularly appear in the Polish “PiliPili Travel Buddy” travel magazine.
In Poland we are best known as the “travel agency of more interesting journeys” - wczasywazji.pl. We organize leisure trips to Southeast Asia for families, groups of friends, as well as coworkers under that brand. Our wczasywazji.pl team handcrafts each and every tour, based on the customers’ needs and wants. That is why each journey you embark upon together with us is a unique, memorable experience – a truly tailored-to-your-needs tour!
However, our wczasywazji.pl website is way more than a simple travel agency sales site. It is a place where we share travel tips, stories from our daily life in Asia, and interesting facts about Southeast Asian customs, cuisine, and travel destinations. We also share our passion and knowledge through our Youtube videos, as well as on our Facebook page.
Five years have passed since we have started our great adventure. It has been a very interesting, but also quite intense, and sometimes hectic time. The last year (2020) posed a great challenge for many companies all over the world; however, we have not wasted this time. We are constantly developing our offer portfolio, ready to welcome you in Southeast Asia as soon as it is possible.
As a part of our 5th birthday celebrations, we have prepared for you some quite interesting surprises, such as a series of interviews with experienced travelers, and a timeline video featuring the milestones of our company’s growth during the past five years.
See you in Asia!
