The last 15 years have seen Asia Pacific go from being a relative backwater in online travel to the biggest regional market on the planet.
Brands such as Ctrip and MakeMyTrip have established themselves as leaders in China and India respectively, tapping into the growing middle and upper classes who have placed travel as their number one lifestyle choice.
Highly populated markets such as Indonesia are now following their Indian and Chinese counterparts, inspiring the next generation of entrepreneur to give the travel industry a chance.
