Having a van is a practical way to shuttle people around. Be it as a family hauler or a VIP mover, a van is a perfect ride that does one thing well: carry people, and their luggage, comfortably.
A happy adventure awaits – this is the mantra of FOTON’s Cummins-powered Traveller van. Since it was launched in 2015, the Traveller has proven to be a reliable vehicle for travel and tours. It offers seating configuration for 16-passengers in ultimate comfort, practicality, and space.
Experiencing the power, performance and relaxing comfort of the FOTON Traveller is none other than one of the ultimate, luxurious VIP vacation spots in the Philippines – Balesin Island Club.
Currently owned by Alpha Land, the Balesin Island Club is located in Lamon Bay, Pollilio, Quezon Province, Philippines. The 500-hectare exclusive island boasts of classical and world-class architectures, pristine white sands, and clear waters.
Huddled amid its flora and fauna are villages inspired by different destinations around the world: Bali in Indonesia, Mykonos in Greece, Costa del Sol in Spain, Toscana in Italy, St. Tropez in France, and Phuket in Thailand.
The resort uses electric golf carts to go around the island to reduce its carbon footprints and grow their own fruits, vegetables, herbs in farms. On the other hand, for both guests and employees, the Traveller is being used in transferring the guests to their preferred villages on island tours.
Under the hood, the Traveller is equipped with a 2.8L 16-valve Cummins ISF turbo diesel engine, which is well capable of 130 horsepower and 280 Nm of peak torque, with a view to providing more economical results for the vehicle’s performance.
Feature-wise, the Traveller comes equipped with a dual airbag, fog lamps, power steering, central locking system with keyless entry and power windows. For safety purposes, it also comes with anti-lock braking system (ABS) and electronic brake distribution. In addition, parking sensors and the tailgate mirror, rear air-conditioning are also ready for use.
The Traveller follows the bucket seat concept so basically, each passenger gets an own space. Apart from the comfortably designed individual seats, wide cargo space for luggage, and a bubble top that allows more headroom for the passengers, the Traveller is also equipped with feature accessories that comes fitted as standard making the trip more enjoyable such as USB port, Aux-in, 4 speakers, MP3 and CD player that allows guests to listen to their favorite soundtracks while roaming around the island club.
Balesin Island Club definitely is a hidden gem when it comes to natural wonders, first-rate amenities and world-class services, and off course, the FOTON Traveller plays a vital role in providing exceptional mobility and worthwhile journey experiences for the guests – something that makes the Balesin experience more relaxing, and most importantly, even memorable.
