Our publishing division creates stunning luxury travel magazines written in Mandarin for a readership of highly influential and affluent Chinese-speaking travelers.
Our audience is extremely sophisticated and demands high quality in every aspect of their lives. We represent the voice of Chinese tourists who travel independently to discover the finest that the world has to offer. They stay in the very best hotels, shop in luxury retail boutiques and they travel in business class or private jets. They seek out peak experiences wherever they are. What our audience has told us they do not want are group tourist junkets with packed busses, low-rent hotels on the seamy side of the city, droning tour leaders waiving little flags, and the compulsory stops at kick-back souvenir shops.
The Digital Future
All our publications are digital, available on the web and mobile devices like smartphones and iPads. From the very beginning, our magazines have been designed with digital in mind. We have developed our own proprietary digital publishing technology in order to seamlessly integrate our content with Chinese social media networks.
Our magazines are nothing like traditional tourist brochures. We do not simply, compile boring listings of average hotels and restaurants.
The flagship journals have a carefully curated content made to empower our Chinese readers We offer them first-hand access to luxury travel insights that they would never find in any other Chinese publication.
Images rule our design. We have sought out and secured some of the world’s best photographers to chronicle this luxurious world with images that capture a spirit and deliver a rush of emotion.
Our articles are written directly in Chinese language by our in-house editorial team of talented Chinese editors, based in Shanghai. The stories go far beyond mere descriptions. They evoke the beauty and majesty of destinations or tell compelling stories about the global travel experience that is waiting for our readers. They are not just reporters.
