Browns Tours, in partnership with 12Go Asia, has launched a total logistics solution for tourists to travel within Sri Lanka thus allowing them to visit distant areas that may have been otherwise missed. It is believed that this in turn will bring some much needed income to local businesses in those areas as well.

These long distance sectors, covering over 160 tourist destinations, will be available for instant reservation at reasonable prices via an instant booking facility and real-time availability updates through the 12Go Asia online booking platform. This adds further convenience for tourists to plan their own journey or for local DMCs and hotels to service their clients through Browns Tours’ logistical solutions. Facilities like this make travel around the country easier and open up more opportunities for tourists to explore this island paradise and inject money directly into communities that may not be tourist hotspots.

Browns Tours will also cater to local corporates by combining exclusive, tailor-made packages at the exceptional Browns Hotels with coach services to and from the hotel. This eliminates any further planning burden for corporates as Browns Tours becomes a one-stop shop for all their travel needs. Bookings can be made online now by visiting browns-tours.12go.asia/en.

Commenting on the launch, Dishan Perera, CEO – Browns Tours/Chief Business Development Officer Leisure, said, “We believe this new service will open up new avenues for tourism in Sri Lanka. Tourists will no longer be bound by strict itineraries and be able to move about the country with ease. This will likely help keep more dollars in the country and uplift those communities that may have been overlooked due to previously being inaccessible by our foreign guests. Sri Lanka is a paradise that needs to be seen and we are here to help everyone see as much of it as possible.”

Incorporated in Singapore in 2012 with its main operational offices in Bangkok, 12Go serves multinational customers with high-quality, safe, secure and efficient transportation services. The company became a powerful system for B2B and B2C online ticketing with its most advanced technology and based on state of the art programming.

Browns Tours has been in the business of offering bespoke tours for discerning tourists for over 60 years. In those decades spent serving a global clientele, Browns Tours has made a name for itself in the tourism sphere. As part of Brown & Company PLC, one of Sri Lanka’s largest blue-chip conglomerates, the company has been imbued with a sense of service that is professional and honest. Browns tours welcomes all industry stakeholders DMCs/travel agents and Hoteliers to partner with them in promoting these coach services around Sri Lanka, connecting with 160 destinations.
