Onur Gul with locals

Jacinta Mc Glynn (Senior Reporter Travelbiz) recounts a recent fabulous Fam trip that Turkish Airlines (co-hosted with Tourism Authority of Thailand), where Onur Gul (Sales & Marketing Executive Turkish Airlines) led his gritty group of travel agents onwards to Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. Yes, it appears that Old Saigon surrendered to the Irish group and they simply had a wonderful experience. Between Vespa rides in the rain (dig the groovy macs guys!) and an utterly amazing cruise on the Mekong Delta, the travel agents enjoyed every moment and entered into the spirit of adventure that Vietnam offers.


Onur Gul was even spotted paddling his own boat (canoe?) on the mighty Mekong! Tuk tuk rides and temple visits were all included and Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam was a victorious visit. Turkish Airlines has been voted Skytrax Best Airline in Europe for the 6th consecutive year and, with their superb staff, our terrific team in Dublin (we should be so proud) and their incredible choice of destination, it’s no wonder Turkish Airlines is such an attractive prospect for travel agents to choose as their No 1 for clients. Turkish Airlines is promoting their routes to South East Asia including Bangkok and Phuket in Thailand and Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam. Widen your World with Turkish Airlines.
