Capturing Asia’s Winning Insider Moments

Insider Journeys has announced the winner of its Insider Moments Photo Competition following much deliberation of the high quality photo submissions it received.

The winning photo, which perfectly captured an enchanting sunset along the U Bein Bridge in Myanmar, was shot by Shuo Huang and has received the top prize of an $800 Apple Gift Card.

Shuo described the scene that set the stage for the winning image.

"On a sweltering day, I cycled along the U Bein Bridge in Myanmar, the sun setting behind me and a deluge of rain came down. The light was phenomenal," said Shuo.

Insider Journeys General Manager, Customer Experience and Marketing, Joe Ponte, was delighted with the quality of the images submitted to the competition.

"We received some incredibly evocative images which really did illustrate the rich tapestry of local life across Asia," said Ponte.

"As well as featuring Burma, the other images which received recognition captured scenes in Luang Prabang in Laos, Shahpura in Rajasthan northern India, the Bangkok River in Thailand and the 'Venice of India', Udaipur.

The runners up received prizes of a Luxe Asian Grand Tour Box 11th edition (RRP $95USD).
