Around-the-World with Matt Lauer

For savvy world travelers and those wanting to be –

New York – Buenos Aires – Madrid – Amsterdam – Istanbul – Mahe – Bangkok – Vientiane – Luang Phrabang – Hong Kong – New York

AirTreks is grateful for the recent recommendation by Travel Editor and longtime journalist Peter Greenberg of NBC’s Today show during the annual series of “Where in the World is Matt Lauer?,” which kept viewers guessing on Matt’s global whereabouts. Being the go to around-the-world and multi-stop international travel agency for air traveling globe-trotters has been our focus since 1987, and we continue to send people on custom trips to nearly every corner of the world and in any direction they choose.

Matt Lauer began his journey dancing the Tango in Buenos Aires then tip-toed his way through fields of tulips in the Netherlands. His third stop was a little more off the beaten path in Southeast Asia’s Laos, “a true magical mystery tour…where more and more savvy travelers are slowly discovering this small country,” Peter Greenberg, MSNBC.

Matt continued on to see historical Antiquities in Istanbul, Turkey, where not enough can be said about its marvel. Although it’s filled with much history and an active nightlife one might consider eventually moving the party to nearby Pamukkale, otherwise known as Cotton Castle, where hot spring water has been flowing for over 14,000 years leaving large slopes of bright-white travertine deposits. Here you will be able to replenish and simmer yourself in its 95 degree waters.

The completion of his journey took place in the pristine 115 island sprawl of Seychelles located north of Madagascar in the Indian Ocean before his return to New York. Being the second largest of the Seychelles Islands Praslin has beautiful coral reefs and the Vallee de Mai UNESCO World Heritage Site that is home to the Coco de Mer palm tree. Interestingly in past centuries its coconuts, or Sea Coconuts, used to drift by way of sea currents all the way to Maldives giving Maldivians an important free trade item. Make sure you have a visa, your accommodations are booked before arrival and you have proof of an onward ticket or else you might not even be able to enter Seychelles.

We recognize the economy has been lagging and that not everyone can go on a Matt Lauer type trip whether due to money or time constraints. There are more ways you can increase the value of your travel dollar than just going on a simple round-trip. While the cost of airfare continues to rise, those simple round-trips which were once a bargain have become a rarity. Adding in a couple more destinations will further your experiences gained and does not necessarily mean you have to go away for months at a time.
