Boulder and Colorado Springs, CO (PRWEB) March 7, 2008
Chartwell Partners Asset Management is offering global investors a luxury investment tour of Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. While five years ago, many analysts believed that Southeast Asian markets would be in trouble due to intense competition from China, the region has thrived and offers investors a great play on Asian growth. The tour is called "Investing Along the Orient Express" because it includes a journey from Singapore to Bangkok aboard the historic Eastern & Oriental Express.
The goal of the trip is to learn more about investing in this dynamic region together with enjoying its fascinating culture and sites. Chartwell Managing Director Carl Delfeld stated that he planned the tour in response to many requests at investment conferences. "After I would speak about global investing opportunities and strategies, there would always be several investors asking if they could travel with me to learn first hand about places like Southeast Asia. Now they have the chance."
Debbie O'Brien-Director of Sales, Orient-Express Hotels, Trains & Cruises noted that "they look forward to the Chartwell investor group joining the Eastern & Oriental Express as part of this creative and memorable tour of Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. From the exciting mix of Chinese, Indian and Malay architecture and cuisine in Singapore to the glittering Thai temples of Bangkok, this journey embraces the great cultures, spiritual tranquility and mystery for which South East Asia is renowned. Welcome aboard!!"
The investment tour will be from January 26th through February 2nd 2009 and will begin with three days in Singapore at the Raffles Hotel. After interesting economic, company, and regional investment briefings from experts plus a visit to places like the Singapore Stock Exchange during the mornings, enjoy flexible touring options such as cruises, sightseeing or sporting activities in the afternoons and evenings. One morning will be dedicated to Malaysia and Indonesia, which have been steady performers.
On the fourth day, the Eastern & Oriental Express departs Singapore's Keppel Road station in the morning. Having been welcomed onboard the gleaming carriages, settle into your luxury cabin and, if you wish, meet interesting people from all over the world. Enjoy the passing scenery as the train crosses to Malaysia via the causeway of the Straits of Johor. Lunch is served in one of the opulent dining cars. Dress for dinner and then spend a relaxing evening in the Bar Car in the company of our resident pianist.
During the evening, the E&O arrives at Kuala Lumpur's magnificent Moorish-style station where we will pause before departing for our overnight journey towards Bangkok with side trips to the island of Penang and the River Kwai. Our home for three days in Bangkok will be the prestigious Oriental where the morning briefings and investment activities will center on Thailand and Vietnam.
