WHERE CAN YOU TRAVEL NOW?
After a long hiatus, travel to Asia is back. Countries are beginning to open up, restrictions are easing and it’s now possible to have wonderful travel experiences again. Read on to discover which of our amazing holidays are TRAVEL READY, right now.
Tea, Toddy and Tuk Tuk's
In many ways, Sri Lanka is immense. Not in size - in fact, the Indian Ocean island is quite compact - but in the magnitude of its beauty: the ancient temples, the staggering beaches, the lushness that seems impossible to contain.
Souqs, scenery and serendipity
Oman is the Middle East’s best-kept secret. It is a country packed with extraordinary scenery: from the Empty Quarter (the world’s largest continuous desert) and lush green Salalah filled with waterfalls and wadis to the golden coastline and the rugged peaks of Jebel Akhdar. The accommodation, too, is outstanding.
It's truly Thai, but not as you know it
Imagine waking up to breakfast on your terrace, overlooking the sprawling jungle below. Stepping out onto your stretch of beach as you prepare to dive in a pristine reef. Explore dynamic cities with your private guide, safe in the knowledge that a beautiful hotel awaits you on your return.
Temples beyond Angkor. Experiences beyond belief.
Until quite recently, travellers had relatively limited options when it came to luxury holidays in Cambodia. Now, it’s possible to design your entire holiday around beautiful beach retreats, wild and wonderful jungle lodges and atmospheric city sanctuaries.
A seductive secret for travellers in the know
Laos seems to be one of those countries that are on many a travellers’ list, but year after year gets pushed aside, often for somewhere more well-known. Somehow, it's remained something of a secret - but for those in the know, Laos is a brilliant option for a luxury holiday. With the mighty Mekong River running from top to bottom, Laos is one of the most gorgeous destinations in Asia, while its fascinating ancient culture and laidback way of life make for a truly immersive holiday.
WHAT ISTRAVEL READY?
Travel Ready is the ETG way of saying that you can now have a great holiday in a destination in a relatively straightforward way.
To determine that a destination is Travel Ready, we consider three things:
- Guidance from the FCDO.
- The destination’s rules and restrictions.
- The ‘ETG View’ - a more subjective evaluation, based on our local knowledge and nearly 20 years experience, on whether you’ll still be able to have a brilliant holiday. This will take into account questions such as how you will be welcomed in the destination and whether our local experiences will be compromised. We also place a strong emphasis on quality control in hotels both from a COVID safety and maintenance perspective.
