About us

Baolau launched in 2013 as a multi-transport travel search engine.

From the beginning our mission has been to interconnect cities, compare travel routes and facilitate ticket booking for any mean of transportation: flights, trains, buses and ferries. We chose the term "bao lâu", which means "how long does it take?" in Vietnamese language, to honor our origins.

In 2015, we received funding from angel investors and incorporated the company BAOLAU PTE. LTD. in Singapore and the subsidiary BAOLAU CO. LTD. in Vietnam. In 2016, we expanded our operations in Cambodia and Laos. In 2017, we participated in MIST: Mekong Innovative Startup Tourism accelerator founded by Mekong Tourism Coordinating Office (MTCO), Mekong Business Initiative (MBI) and Asian Development Bank (ADB). Also the same year, we received investment from DesignOne Japan (TYO:6048) to pursue business growth in the Mekong Region. In 2018, we increased our coverage of the transportation network in Thailand, Myanmar, Malaysia, Indonesia and Philippines. In 2019, the Japanese company BOEKI UP CO. LTD. became a shareholder and strategic partner of BAOLAU to support our business expansion and operations in Japan. In 2020, we expanded our operations in China, Taiwan and Japan. In 2021, we established the subsidiary BAOLAU THAI CO. LTD. in Thailand.

In the present, our international team operates from our offices in Singapore, Ho Chi Minh City, Bangkok and Kobe, and comprises members from Vietnam, Thailand, Singapore, Spain, France, Italy and Japan.

We love travelling and we are passionate about developing a platform that can help people travel in Asia, compare transport options and book tickets easily in few minutes. To achieve this, we cooperate with the major transportation providers in the region to integrate accurate information of schedules and prices, and make online booking accessible to everybody.
