  • Refrain from drinking water from unknown sources

Operational notes:

  • Easia Travel no longer issues wet tissues to travelers on the ground, as part of our sustainability policy
  • Easia guides are able to support guests’ purchasing sanitizing gel & face masks where required, however it’s preferable for guests to pack and bring to Southeast Asia if possible, due to availability in various regions
