You have probably noticed that Purple Dragon does not offer group tours with set departure dates. However, if you have a small group you can still enjoy Purple Dragon's destinations, service and exceptional guides.
We have plenty of experience with groups throughout our part of the world. We are well prepared to care for groups of
four to sixty people following our established itineraries or custom designed programs. We can offer hotels
in practically every price level.
If you have access to a group of people who want to travel and are prepared to participate in planning the trip, you may be able to travel free or at a substantially reduced cost. We help you plan the itinerary and suggest hotels and activities. All you need to do is supply the group members.
Our prices are very competitive and probably a lot less than you will probably pay if you plan everything yourself. We have well established relationships with hotels and transportation companies that guarantee we get preferred prices. If time
also means money to you, we will save you plenty.
Special interest groups are our forte. If you belong to a club or have a group of friends with a special interest--like diving, sailing, cooking, golf, fine dining, shopping or practically anything else--we can tailor-make an itinerary just for you.
For travel agencies or tour companies, your group's arrangements can be branded with your company name
instead of ours. We will not put the Purple Dragon name on anything and we promise not to solicit your group members for future arrangements.
Typically, we prefer not to handle one-day sightseeing that does not include hotel accommodation or itineraries in places we do not normally operate. We are not interested in groups with children or programs that are clearly sex vacations.
Meetings, MICE and Special Events
We also have a good deal of experience with corporate events, meetings, parties, corporate retreats and MICE projects. We have done some very unusual and creative things, including a banquet in Phnom Penh's National Museum served by
"statues," a retreat for a board of directors in Dalat with breakfast on a private train. We brought a circus from Saigon to perform in Bao Dai's Villa and invited kids from a local orphanage.
For another group we put on a breathtaking cultural performance in Saigon's Opera House followed by a surprise dinner on the stage. We refurbished the National Water Puppet Theatre in Hanoi just for one corporate event, and put on a dinner in the Temple of Literature. The Vietnamese Army Chorus entered with blazing torches and sang "Hello Dolly." (We don't remember why.)
Most recently we handled a couple's 40th anniversary celebration in Bangkok that brought 50 of their closest friends form around the world. We provided sightseeing and other activities during the day, and private parties and dinners every night,
as well as post-group add-ons
Wat, Chiang Mai, India and China.
