I’m glad I was able to join and witness the event spearheaded by travel app Klook. The Klook Travel Fest is on its third run but it was just my first time. I went in as an observer because I really have no idea how this mobile-powered travel sale goes. Now I know and I will definitely allot a budget for the next travel fest.
I have been enjoying the services of travel app Klook even on my first overseas travel. Thanks to Klook, I was able to explore and enjoy the places I’ve been to with affordable, hassle-free, and well-thought out deals that cannot be resisted.
