Mr Albert See (许炳辉)
ASA Holiday Managing Director / CEO / Founder
By the early 90s, Mr. Albert See had journeyed on to establish another multinational travel company with Indonesian business tycoons to further develop Singapore and Malaysia markets travel to China on a full scale. This project took a short period of three years to create a premium company for travel business and leisure to the world especially china. In the development stage, the company had used intensive publicity of more than 30 million dollars on advertising and promotions for its branding.
This enabled the company a solid foundation with great potential for further expansion. During those days ASA Holidays were the first to organize various large sale travel fairs and give away grand draw prizes like our ‘Million-dollar Luxury Car draw’, till date with more than 10 Mercedes-Benz luxury saloons drawn. Among other initiatives, Mr. Albert see had also sponsored Chinese serial travel programs like “Jiang Shan Wan Li Xing” to publicize Singapore’s first Grand banquet held at great hall of the people with 1500 persons at every one time, a rare treat for customers to experience such as “National guest” would.
This also brought about multiple chartered flights to large cities in China that made China “available to all” not only in Singapore but Malaysia as well. Another memorable project which he holds dearly was the historic affair in 1997, the handover of Hong Kong to China. Once again ASA Holiday was the only travel agency to have the resources to lead more than thousand people to Hong Kong for the grand ceremony banquet to witness the handover to China.
It all started with a dream to make ‘Travel available to all’. Always on the look-out for new ways to allow joy to travel, and be a leader in differentiated tour programs. Came the next waves, experiencing and participating in global history worthy events for our customers. Mr. Albert See launched the ‘President China Tour’ to follow President Clinton’s footsteps on his historic visit to China. In Xi’an grand ‘Emperor Of flourish Tang Touring to Town Grand Ceremony’ was held, with more than a thousand participants. A joking remark was made by some of the tour participants: “You were really more terrific in comparison with the president.” Main leaders of Xi’an City Council Government also joined and witness the grand ceremony. The then Mayor of Xi’an City had made a reception to honor the main officers-in-charge of the travel group. He pointed at the reception: “It is a first for such organization of large scale travel groups visiting Xi’an at the same day.”
Among the last 50 years of travel, the peak was reached during early 1980s where our travel business has expanded globally. Mr. Albert See set up branches or companies in Singapore, Malaysia, Brunei, Thailand, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Seoul, New York, Hawaii, San Francisco, Los Angeles, London, Paris, Sydney, New Zealand etc., to let millions of tourists travel globally whilst getting travel services feel like home-service. The investment used for setting up of company and branding publicity in advertising and promotions were an estimate of several hundred millions of dollars. ASA Holidays is an extension and inheritance of the solid foundations accumulated over several decades of global travel business.
Entering into the 21 century, the main shareholders with no intention of continuing the business sold their shares to a Taiwanese. Being a small shareholder in this establishment, I have decided to relinquish my shares. Soon after the “Huan Wo Zhuangli Shanhe” through a turbulent period, and with all the success since I started my humble business pooling more than 5 million, Mr. Albert have decided to bring back a team of key executives with together more than 100 years of experience. We continued to establish the present Air Sino-Euro Associates Travel Pte Ltd, with strong belief that he will not only allow travel ‘available to all’ but at the same time inject a ‘joy to travel’ as well.
As travellers become more affluent and well-travelled, Mr. Albert See wanted our customers to be part of any history-worthy global events in the making. While keeping true to his dream of making ‘Travel available to all’ coupled with ‘joy to travel’ ASA Holiday has made these history-worthy global events affordable to the masses. Among these events were Beijing Olympic Games 2008, Shanghai World Exposition 2010, Taipei International Flora Exposition 2010 & the coming Xi’an Int’l Horticultural Expo 2011 set to open in April 2011. It has become a tradition for ASA Holiday to charter flights over the Chinese New Year Spring Festival yearly to celebrate with different cultures in our world. Some of ASA Holiday most notable destination would be Northern Harbin Ice & Snow, Guizhou, Yunnan and Taiwan.
Looking back Mr. Albert See realized he have been in the travel industry for half century. He has not only witness but personally participated in the vicissitudes of travel business in Singapore, Malaysia, and Southeast Asia etc. He was blessed with the opportunity to nurture a few start-up businesses and watch it successfully mature into ‘cash cows’. Reminiscing when he first started this dream with only five hundred dollars capital, although there were many challenges, there was also much joy, watching the expressions and happiness on our customers when they first touch snow, or first time sitting on a plane. These are precious moments money can’t buy and if he had to start all over again, he would not change a single thing. He shall not rest in his laurels and will continue to pursue that one dream ‘Travel made available to all’ and ‘Lifetime of Joy Travel’ with Air Sino-Euro Associates Travel simply known as ASA Holidays.
