Ep 69: A South East Asia Travel Resources Guide to the Pandemic

About This Episode

6 May 2021 • 32m00s

On this week’s show, Gary and Hannah take a break from Travel Bubbles, PCR Tests and Reopening Strategies. Instead, the show builds a virtual guide of all the travel resources that we read, watch and listen to when researching the show, and producing our own weekly reports.

The South East Asia Travel Show Resources Guide surveys the information, media and data landscape, and discusses how it’s developed and diversified since COVID-19 took hold. The multimedia mix extends from travel webinars, podcasts and weekly and monthly reports to newspaper websites, vaccine trackers, airline and and hotel dashboards and COVID-19 infection aggregators. Plus, some of the very best e-newsletters that have emerged in recent months by local writers in Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Bali.

Ep 76: Travel Reopening: Is it Only About Inbound Tourists?

Inbound vs Outbound vs Domestic. With Phuket and Bali focused on attracting international visitors, how will outbound and domestic travel be incorporated into tourism planning across South East Asia in future? After 15 months of border closures and a reliance on domestic travel only, Gary and Hannah discuss how Thailand and Indonesia are leading the charge to reboot inbound tourism. Domestic travel, though, appears to have assumed less importance. Meanwhile neither country is looking yet at attracting travellers from fellow ASEAN countries, as outbound travel remains static due to government restrictions.
