Klook, a Hong Kong-based travel startup, completed a near US$60m Series C funding.
The round was led by Sequoia China, Goldman Sachs and existing investor Matrix Partners, with participation from various Asia-based family funds through global OurCrowd.
The funding will be used to finance global expansion and accelerate product growth and innovation.
