Ep 114: 2021 in Review: The Good, The Bad & The Delta Variant

About This Episode

13 Dec 2021 β€’ 38m00s

This time last year, our 2020 in Review show described it as β€œ12 months that no-one will ever forget.” We could say exactly the same for 2021. Long periods of lockdown throughout South East Asia, stop-start domestic travel, governments moving forwards and backwards and strict border policies in place.

There were a few bright spots, but not as many as hoped for, or perhaps expected.

So, for the 2021 in Review show Gary and Hannah created a list of 10 events and developments that will always remind us of this year, plus 4 more that bubbled just beneath.

The only spoiler alert is in the headline of this podcast - so, please take a listen and let us know your thoughts and comments on our selection of the 10 definitive impacts on travel and tourism in South East Asia in 2021.

Roll on 2022!

Ep 115: 2022: The Current State of Travel & Tourism in South East Asia

It’s January. This should be peak season for travel across South East Asia. But 2022 is not starting as a ‘normal’ year. Instead, as we prepare for a third year of living with COVID-19, the impending spread of Omicron dominates the economic and social discourse across the region. Shards of light for travel and tourism glistened briefly back in November 2021, but most borders are once again closed or heavily patrolled.
