The South East Asia Travel Show

Can SEA Islands Provide a Blueprint for the Future of Tourism?

August 5, 2020

South East Asia is blessed with a spectacular array of island destinations, including the world's largest archipelago and the planet's 2nd, 3rd and 6th-largest islands. With such a diversity of offshore travel options, will more governments promote their islands as test cases to reopen domestic, and perhaps international, tourism? All eyes are currently looking towards Bali and Indonesia, but Malaysia, Thailand, Philippines, Cambodia and Myanmar are among the countries that may promote island tourism above all else. This week's island hop through South East Asia also takes in the latest travel developments across the region. Gary and Hannah also discuss how idyllic island getaways such as Maldives and Seychelles plan to reboot tourism.
