This week, Malaysia announced its reopening date, and Bali made it easier for travellers to visit. Singapore expanded its VTL scheme to more countries and cities.
These developments reflect a general stepping up the return of travel across South East Asia. More hurdles still exist, however. The region’s travel landscape remains patchy and bureaucratic, and travellers face an avoidable administration burden. Progress is being made, though.
On this week’s show, Gary and Hannah take a tour around the region to assess the changing inbound, outbound and domestic travel situations in South East Asia’s key markets.
We also address the unfolding impact of the Russian invasion of Ukraine on travel to and from South East Asia. Plus, finally, some positive financial news from one of the region’s major airlines.
