Blog Published on 5 Dec 2021

Global interest in South East Asian travel & tourism soared in November, as the region began to reopen its borders. During the month, travel talk turned cautiously positive after 20 months of gloom. And then - right at the end of November - Omicron arrived!

November 2021 saw The South East Asia Travel Show again break our monthly download record for the 3rd successive month - with 10.25% listener growth compared to October.

Our Top 10 listener markets are: US, Australia, UK, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Canada, Philippines, Vietnam & Indonesia. We’re so thrilled that 6 of those are ASEAN countries! Cambodia also resides in the Top 20 (17th).

Overall, 12 of the Top 20 download markets in November are in Asia Pacific, 5 in Europe, 2 North America & 1 (Kenya) in Africa.

Thanks to everyone who listened in - from Argentina to Romania, and South Africa to Trinidad & Tobago.

During November, we launched our new weekly news, interviews and current affairs show, The SEA Travel News Show. Each episode is drawing a strong support - and the show claimed 3 of the Top 4 most downloaded podcasts last month.
