The history of The Travel Advisers Ltd, began in Shanghai in 1932. At that time, great demand was fuelled by the lure of the exotic Venice of the East for European companies to find their fortune there. The idea was born by two English gentlemen to provide passenger travel on steamships for families coming out to join their beloved ones in the great adventure. Among some of these shipping lines were American President Lines, Canadian Pacific, Mitsui, O.S.K., P & O, Blue Funnel, Lloyd Triestino and many others. Following the successful start in Shanghai, two more offices were subsequently added in Guangzhou and Hong Kong.
