Sacha Smith Laing
PR & Marketing
Sacha is a travel marketer and tropics lover. She grew up in Singapore – where she lived for 16 years and still goes back twice a year – and has lived in Taiwan and Hong Kong. With these as her launchpad, she took full advantage of the fabulous travel opportunities across the region and has been on a trajectory towards working in the travel trade from a young age. Growing up she regularly visited Thailand, Malaysia and Indonesia, and has also explored Nepal, India, Sri Lanka, China, the Philippines, Japan, Cambodia and Burma. Sacha started her career in travel journalism and then moved into travel PR, marketing and websites, working for luxury tour operators both in London and Asia. She is deliriously passionate about travel and sees it as her mission to inspire others to enjoy the travel treasures that Asia has to offer.
Sacha’s most memorable experiences include the afternoon she spent drifting along Lake Picchola in Udaipur, on board the Taj Lake Palace’s 'Spa Boat' (a small customised boat equipped with a Jiva spa therapy room and a deck with a bathtub full of fragrant rose petals), and staying at the Taj Falaknuma Palace in Hyderabad where guests are transported back to the royal era of the Nizams of Hyderabad.
Sacha is currently on maternity leave.
