Bhutan Beck­ons

Portfolio - - IN THIS ISSUE -

While still mostly closed off to the world, Bhutan doesn’t hes­i­tate to open up to you once you’re there

Tech­nol­ogy is the un­seen hand that is mak­ing mod­ern travel more ef­fi­cient, and there­fore more en­joy­able. In fact, the more in­vis­i­ble this hand is, the more likely we are to de­light in this pur­suit. From book­ing a flight to buy­ing a room up­grade and by­pass­ing a counter check-in, there is much to say about how AI, al­go­rithm, blockchain, IoT, biom­e­try, or any com­bi­na­tion of these has made travel worth­while. With just the mo­bile phone, nearly every­thing we need to pre­pare for a jour­ney can be done. But let’s not for­get that tech­nol­ogy is a tool that ul­ti­mately works in the hands of hu­mans. Take cus­tomer feed­back for ex­am­ple, and how it is be­ing used to cre­ate bet­ter ser­vice. In the fu­ture, we can ex­pect more amaz­ing de­vel­op­ments that may just turn get­ting ready for a trip a joy in it­self.
