explora is not so much a travel group as a revolutionary travel experience. It is an enterprise, founded in 1989, to encourage a new attitude towards travel for those who have a passion for discovering new places and new people, in remote and relatively unexplored regions of the southern tip of South America.
Swire Hotels currently manages two contemporary chic urban hotels, providing a luxury experience for travellers who seek individuality, style and personalised service. The Opposite House, Beijing, opened in 2008 in Sanlitun Village, a vibrant open-plan shopping, dining and entertainment destination. This was followed by the opening of The Upper House, an intimate 117-room hotel located above Pacific Place, Hong Kong, in October 2009. Swire Hotels is developing a collection of stylish boutique hotels in interesting towns and cities across the UK to be launched in 2010.
