Asian Overland Services Tours & Travel Sdn. Bhd., better known as AOS, is a Malaysian company with more than 42 years experience in the leisure and incentive sectors of tourism. Started in 1976 with a staff of five, AOS today is a leading and reputable partner with over 130 committed and dedicated staff members.
In 1972 Anthony Wong, a young Kuala Lumpur teenager, guided fellow school students to the summit of Gunung Tahan without a guide or teacher. This was a time when few visitors even went to Taman Negara let alone ascended peaks with poorly defined trails. Thereafter, Anthony was recruited to guide Australian university students who had travelled to Malaysia with the assistance of Student Travel Australia (STU). Despite still at school, Anthony regularly guided the equally adventurous Australians all over the country during his school holiday breaks.
Anthony Wong progressed from being a part-time school student and occasional tour guide for foreign students to the formal establishment of Asian Overland Services in 1976. In 1978, business developed to the extent that a more professional service was required and this meant opening an office. Between 1978 and 1981, AOS operated its office from Room 202 of the Hotel Malaya, Chinatown; then one of KL’s few hotels of international standard. AOS went international in 1977 with the opening of a small office in Bali.
