Adam Tan
TTG Asia's irreverent scribe and social diarist comes out of retirement - for good. Something has to pay for his love for parties and a few stiff drinks. But Adam does not have to be the only one sharing interesting tales about the travel trade. If you want to share hot news, gossips, stories, pictures with Adam - anything that will send the industry twittering, pop him an email.


When a video goes viral ADAM TAN, BANGKOK
BELIEVE it or not, I still remember a time when the word "viral" used to have a more negative connotation, as in viral hepatitis or viral infection. Those are not the sort of "virals" your social media manager, or any other human being for that matter, would be happy to have.
If travel creates desire for it like the Danes ADAM TAN, SINGAPORE, MARCH 31, 2014
YOU may have seen it - the patriotic Do It For Denmark video that's been arousing some excitement on the Internet exhorting Danes to take a holiday, get it on, and rescue the nation's declining fertility rate.
Someone's hogging the tourism spotlight in Spain ADAM TAN, EN ROUTE A FOOD COMA, OCTOBER 1, 2013
TAKING a roadtrip to look at pigs might not sound an obvious attraction for the average holidaymaker - especially if they have to travel to Europe to do it.
Plane etiquette: mind your table manners ADAM TAN, SINGAPORE, AUGUST 30, 2013
NEWS of a group of Chinese passengers helping themselves to in-flight tableware has spread like wildfire on social media.
Feeding the wrong appetite THE BEACH, JULY 23, 2013
BEACHES not conducive to Singaporean lovemaking - is what the headline of this article might as well have screamed.
How to win friends and influence cabin crew ADAM TAN, CATTLE CLASS, MAY 23, 2013
SO YOUR client wants to know how the nerd that sat next to him on the plane got offered an upgrade to first class while he was left slumming it in cattle (I mean, economy) class.
Beauty sleep for Ibis ADAM TAN, SINGAPORE, APRIL 9, 2013
NOT content with just launching its Sweet Bed, Ibis now wants to sleep with you - through its new app.
Passengers weigh in on fat tax ADAM TAN, SINGAPORE, APRIL 1, 2013
INTERNATIONAL travellers have voted in favour of a Fat Tax, which would see horizontally challenged passengers pay more for their flights. Happy April Fools'...Not.
A charming comeback ADAM TAN, SINGAPORE, MARCH 25, 2013
NOW we know where Dharma and Budi Tirtawisata got their good looks from.
Sweet Accor ADAM TAN, SINGAPORE, MARCH 18, 2013
MARKETS evolve. But we never expected this to impact French macarons.
