Dear Steven,

Hello Everyone… I am Jeff Holtrop, National Sales Manager for Nexus Holidays. Welcome to June’s Panda Tracks.

I am very excited about this month’s issue because we are announcing our fall 2014 FAM. Maybe you are not too familiar with Nexus Holidays’ FAMs; they are full-immersion experiences and offer you a deep understanding and education of local history, culture, food and the opportunity to friend some local people. Many times I have been asked by locals to take my picture, so they can prove they have a friend in the west. (Never knew I was so popular, well at least in Asia.)
I have been asked by many travel consultants… When are you going to do a Southeast Asia FAM because I really want to go?
I am thrilled to announce October 2, 2014 is the departure date for our 15 day Southeast Asia FAM that covers Vietnam, Cambodia, and optional Thailand. Additionally, we have partnered with Starwood Hotels, ASTA and NACTA to make this FAM a comfortable, educational, and fun experience.
Details are enclosed. You can also save $200 if you early bird book. Come join me as we discover Southeast Asia…. Have a great month and safe travels!

Cruise through the emerald waters while indulging in amazing Karst Limestone Formations. Enjoy sunbathing from the comfort of your chair on the deck while sipping a glass of local beer, or swim in aquamarine water at its best.

Better known as Saigon, it was once the capital of the French colony of Cochinchina. As the largest city in Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh City has so much to offer and is the perfect destination to cap off your journey in Vietnam.

Best known as the hometown to one of the ancient man-made World Wonders, the Angkor Wat, Siem Reap attracts hundreds of thousands of travelers from all over the world every year. This town is a cluster of small villages developed around Buddhist pagodas. As a result of booming tourism, you can now find a number of hotels and resorts in the main road to Angkor.
Phnom Penh
