OTHER NOTES

Suggestions for travelers:

          • Bring hand sanitizing gel (our guides can assist with purchase if required)
          • Carefully wash hands during the day with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds. Use sanitizing gel if soap and water are not available
          • Try to avoid touching eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands
          • 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

For information on your clients’ upcoming trip to Southeast Asia with us, please contact your dedicated Sales Executive or the Sales Development Manager in your region directly.
