Sinolo Travel is a new, vibrant and revolutionary Manchester based online travel company specialising in travel to Mainland China and the Far East. Our founders Danny Fong and David Cown are Chinese themselves and with their contacts across China and now the Far East, our vision is to bring UK holidaymakers to the beautiful Far East.
Our vision began from our love of China. China is not only one of the fastest growing economies in the world, but it is one of the most beautiful. We all know about the famous Great Wall, the Forbidden City, China's great cities - Shanghai and so on, but there's so much more that has been unexplored by Western travellers of China's amazing wonders. Our vision is to show you the best and most amazing places of China and across the Far East, a holiday tailored to your tastes, dreams and endures unforgettable memories.
The origin of our name
Sino is the nickname for China and “lo” is the shortened version for Anglo, meaning the medieval word for England. Hence, we combine the two together to form the word “Sinolo”.
We originally explored other options for a name for the business which include Cheung Sing, which means Great Wall in Cantonese and is also is the Chinese name for the founder. The use of the English translation as Great Wall Travel would have been ideal, however due to copy right and trade Mark restrictions, Great Wall Travel was abandon. Although we deeply thought that Great Wall Travel reflects the identity of the founder we had no option to leave this name.
