The orient is Hong Kong: fly there by Thai International

Two versions of the same Hong Kong Tourist Association poster with a very traditional scene of young children watched over by Gwun Yam (Guan Yin), the Goddess of Mercy. Throughout the 1960's, HKTA made their stock posters available to airlines to airlines to overprint their own logos and taglines, thus helping to promote Hong Kong as a growing tourist destination.
