With online ticket sites such as Travelocity, Kayak and Expedia, who needs travel agencies anymore? Daisy Tsui Komeiji, part owner of Panda Travel Agency, says the key to Panda’s survival is being creative. “We have to think of new ways to get the best trips and prices for our customers,” she says, “which is more work for us, and better value for [the customer].” Panda Travel recently assembled trips around out-of-state UH football games and tours through Japan based on a popular Japanese TV show, Ultimate Japan. “We try to make it fun and different for our clients,” she says.
