October 14, 2022

"Travel news stories should get more interesting now there's two-way travel again between South East Asia and North East Asia." With Japan and Taiwan now open for travel, the competitive landscape in Asia Pacific has just become very competitive. This week, Gary and Hannah discuss the Top 8 travel talking points across South East Asia. En route, we check out Singapore Changi as it resumes operations at all four terminals, discuss the visitor arrivals target progress in Thailand, Vietnam and Malaysia, and Indonesia's eye-watering projection for domestic trips in 2022. Taiwan reopened this week, and it has identified South East Asian nations as priority visitor markets. We've got the latest. Looking one-month ahead, we check on progress for the G20 Summit in Bali and the APEC Leader's Meeting in Thailand. Plus, we preview next week’s big travel industry events in Singapore - TravMedia's International Media Marketplace Asia and ITB Asia - at which we'll be speaking and attending.
