At a time when Georgia has just been recognized by National Geographic Traveler Magazine as a “Best of the World” travel destination for 2017, especially for its cultural and musical heritage (ranging from Ray Charles, to R.E.M., to Luke Bryan and Young Jeezy), a travel company in Georgia has been recognized by Governor Nathan Deal, the Atlanta Business Chronicle, Georgia Department of Economic Development, and the World Trade Center Atlanta, for being among the organizations that strengthen Georgia’s international community.

Out of more than 300,000 businesses in Georgia, Discover Destinations was one of three businesses nominated for International Company of the Year in the Small Business Category. The company is also the proud recipient for the second consecutive year in a row of the Globe Award, also presented by Governor Deal, in recognition of excellence in exporting and commitment to strengthening the state’s economy through continued expansion into new global markets.

A passion for travel, an entrepreneurial spirit, vision, a sense for helping the needy and giving back to community drove Umang Malbari to found Discover Destinations, a tour operator/travel agency situated in Duluth, GA and focusing on tailor-made and packaged holidays for semi luxury, luxury, and corporate travelers.

Now a multi-million-dollar company, Discover Destinations provides services in North and South America to international and domestic travelers, e.g. transportation, flights, accommodation, meals, and sightseeing; its strength lies in providing Indian passengers with Hindi speaking guides, drivers, and Indian food.

Its outbound travel services include providing Indian meals and trained escorts for every part of the globe. They are known for their Hindu and Jain pilgrimage yatras. The company is also a consolidator for many cruise lines, hotels, and resorts, and it does bulk bookings and partners with groups for fundraising opportunities.
