Wendy Wu, travel industry entrepreneur and pioneer, was last night inducted into the esteemed British Travel & Hospitality Hall of Fame.

Accepting the distinction Wendy said: “I am truly honoured to accept this peer award into the British Travel & Hospitality Hall of Fame. When I ran my first tour in 1994, my vision was to introduce travellers to the beauty of my homeland, China. Today, even after 23 years in the industry, my passion for travel has never wavered. I am so grateful to our travel agent partners for their support, and look forward to continuing to empower the trade to grow their business, by introducing travellers to Asia, and the World.”
