- Business Activity.
From its beginnings as an e-commerce start-up in 2005, digital travel platform Agoda has grown to offer a global network of over 2 million properties in more than 200 countries and territories worldwide. We provide travellers easy access to a wide choice of luxury and budget hotels, apartments, homes and villas, to suit all budgets and travel occasions. In 2019, Agoda added a flight product and packages to help make travel even easier. Agoda is part of Booking Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: BKNG).
- Active in Thailand since.
While Agoda as we know it today was created in 2005, with headquarters in Singapore, the predecessor started in Phuket in the early 2000s, and so Thailand remains home to our international business centre in Bangkok, offering a global work environment with 80+ nationalities.

- How does your Company deal with Covid 19.
Agoda pivoted well to address the impact shifting from predominantly international travel to almost exclusively domestic. As technology experts, we refocused our energies to help travellers, accommodation providers and non-accommodation partners, as well as governments find more efficient solutions.
- Your views on 2021.
By late this year or maybe into the next, hopefully we will see international travel resume and a travel boom reflecting people’s pent-up desire to travel.
