GOLDEN Destinations (GD) held its Ambassador Signing Ceremony where Chan Phei Yong — fondly known as Phei Yong among fans — was appointed as its fourth brand ambassador.

Joining the existing line up of brand ambassadors with a tour theme — “Jolly Good Time” with Jack Lim, “Culture Vulture” with Siow Hui Mei and “Gastronomic Delight” with Jason Yeoh — is Phei Yong’s tour themed “Wild Wild Fun”.

Also present were GD managing director Mita Lim, Taiwan Tourism for Malaysia, the Philippines, Indonesia and Brunei director Abe Chou alongside GD senior management team and partners.

“Travelling with a celebrity has been the best selling point, ” said Mita, adding that Phei Yong’s youth and energy would help to break the general impression of group tours and attract younger audiences.

GD is also having a Taiwan Golden Week until Oct 12 with 76 partners nationwide, partnering with Taiwan Tourism to promote the country’s culture, food, scenery and seasons.

Departing next February with Yeoh for a Taiwan Gourmet Tour, there are also other Taiwan tour packages covering different cities and exciting activities with an all-in price from RM1,988.

There is also a G-Trip promotion — travellers who purchase four- to seven-day tour packages are entitled to a 10%+10% discount.

Those who want to join the Taiwan Cycling Tour can get a discount of RM200 per person and there is also a Taiwan One Day Trip from RM99 per person.

Travellers who sign up for GD tour packages before June 30,2020 can join the Travel & Win contest — one lucky winner will drive home a new Mercedes-Benz C200 Avantgarde.

Other winners may win tickets to South Korea, smartphones and power banks.

All GD tour packages are inclusive of travel insurance and GD premium packages come with KLIA 1 and 2 premium lounge access.

Upcoming holiday packages include Yeoh in Jiangnan with GD travellers for his walking tour on Oct 26 and 27.

Later, Yeoh will move his food hunt to South Korea on Nov 13 and 14.

Meanwhile, Jack will guide a Europe winter tour on Nov 15.

In December, travellers will get to meet Jack, Siow and Yeoh on the GD Theme Cruise 2019 along with eight other local artistes.

Tour packages to Canada and Alaska next year will feature Jack and Yeoh as the next appointed guides, sailing on May 3 for 16 days.
