The story of Croatia Travel starts with the on-line platform Croatia Independent Travellers. Justin Chan, Valeria Teo and another Croatian partner living in Hong Kong founded an on-line travel planning platform (www.croatia.com.hk) because of their special affiliations with Croatia. They have been captivated by more than the sapphire Adriatic coast. Croatia also offers a great variety of natural beauty, rich cultural heritage, colourful festivals, numerous sporting and adventure activities. As they devoted their energies to introducing all these treasures to Chinese travellers for a truly unique journey in Croatia, they met Petra Borisavljević of A.T.I. d.o.o. It did not take long for them to see their shared dream. And so Croatia Travel was born as a licensed travel agency in Hong Kong and the Asia Pacific branch office of A.T.I. d.o.o.
While Croatia Travel is able to provide more diversified travel services and products now, the primary missions remain the same: Croatia Travel specializes in travel planning and custom-made tours for those who want to create unforgettable travel experiences of their own both in Croatia and the neighbouring countries. If you want to get expert travel information about Croatia and the neighbouring countries; if you want to experience Croatia and the neighbouring countries from a local perspective; if you want to enjoy a hassle-free vacation in Croatia and the neighbouring countries, you have come to the right place.
