About us

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

Our mission is to interconnect cities by calculating and comparing travel routes and facilitate ticket booking for any mean of transportation: flights, trains, buses and ferries. Our search algorithm is based on Japanese standards for information technologies applied to public transport.

In 2015, we incorporated our company BAOLAU PTE. LTD. in Singapore. In 2017, we received investment from DesignOne Japan to pursue business expansion through the Mekong region. In the present, our international team operates from our offices in Singapore and Ho Chi Minh City, and comprises members from Spain, Italy, Japan and Vietnam.

We love travelling and are passionate about developing a platform that can help travellers find their way in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos and Thailand, 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.

Welcome to Baolau. We look forward to assisting with your travel planning.
