Though ManacaChina opened its doors in May of 2005, it benefits
from the expense, time and energy Manaca™ has invested over
many years. A great deal has gone into developing its product and
establishing executive-level relationships with the strategic resellers.
Manaca™ enjoys a strong alliance with United with United Fairfax
Travel / American Express and the resulting cross-promotion of tours
and trips is proving beneficial to all collaborating companies.
Manaca™ is now looking beyond the well-trodden, standard
paths we know so well, casting an eye on the single most important
travel market of the future ¨C China.
ManacaChina of Beijing is in the business of moving Chinese travelers
from the People¡¯s Republic of China to the United States to complement
Manaca™¡¯s travel services to India and South America. As Mexico
has just been granted ATD status by Beijing, we are developing a
selection of US/Mexico itineraries as well.We are happy to announce
that exciting new plans for India and Europe (Germany/Italy/Austria
in particular) are also being considered seriously, with partners
already in place.
Over the years, ManacaChina¡¯s sister company has concentrated its
efforts on building a network of hospitality industry partners,
ranging from tour operators to hotel and lodge owners to airline
owners and operators. To supplement ManacaChina¡¯s services, we have
identified nationwide partners, hotel chains, bus companies and
Chinese speaking guides to assist and service our US tours. ManacaChina
will position itself as a reputable partner and tour operator to
its Chinese counterparts.
ManacaChina was created to address the new Chinese traveler to
the United States. This is, by-and-large, a less experienced
traveler familiar with few United States destinations. Up to now,
they have been reluctant to explore new cities other than the
standard fare of San Francisco, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Washington,
DC, Philadelphia, and New York City.
Recently however, we have been witnessing an interesting change!
Business travelers are now planning return trips with their
families, students are seeking out alternate destinations, and
wealthier travelers are looking for an upgraded experience in new
areas. This increase in activity is expected to snowball as the
Chinese public becomes more affluent and more aware of the vast
opportunities presented by travel in the United States. The markets
for Miami, San Diego and New Orleans have been all but ignored by
local agents who suddenly realize their clientele is becoming
educated ¨C the desire for new travel products and itineraries is
starting to intensify and ManacaChina is eager to provide a
comprehensive service to all these destinations.
Understanding Your Needs:
Our aim for the Chinese first-time visitors to the US is to provide
a safe and exciting American experience, while being extremely
sensitive to cultural differences in life¡¯s most basic essentials
such as food and communication. We are taking altruism to the human
sector, incorporating appreciation of cultural differences into
every phase of group tour planning and execution.
Aware that price is still the most important factor for Chinese
tourists at this time, we have shaped our services to suit cost
conscious tourists eager to see, learn and explore. However
inexpensive these trips may be, they must be designed to be
memorable and offer a first-rate experience!
