Downers Grove, IL – Emerging from beneath the Cambodian jungle lies the Angkor complex, an estimated 100 temples that represent the highest achievement of man’s creativity. Marco Polo Club members explore the astounding ruins of Angkor Wat, and then go behind-the-scenes for a different perspective: while the rest of the crowds return to Siem Reap for the evening, Marco Polo Club members continue to the 10th century Kravan Temple, where they are transported back to the ancient Khmer empire for an evening of dining amongst dramatically-lit ruins, with Apsara dancers and a Khmer classical orchestra. To commemorate 25 years of leading dedicated travelers far off the beaten path on these kinds of inspiring experiences, Abercrombie & Kent has re-launched the Marco Polo Club (MPC), with a simplified membership structure, elegant new look and enhanced benefits.
Enjoying the privileges of Club membership is easier than ever. A single-tier membership is now $450 per person, valid for three years and applies to renewing and new incoming members. Lifetime members are grandfathered into the club and, along with new members, will receive the Club’s signature benefits.
The Marco Polo Club is a society of people who view travel as an integral element of their lives and prefer to travel with like-minded people. Designed to reward our most loyal travelers, the Club has grown to almost 10,000 members with a repeat travel rate of more than double non-MPC travelers.
