Top 10: Safe Countries in Asia and the South Pacific

Posted on 7/28/2020 12:00:00 AM in The Buzz

Perched atop sacred Mount Phousi, the golden pagoda of Wat Chom Si offers a sweeping panorama of Luang Prabang—capital of the #1 country on this list.

As we prepare to begin traveling again, we’ve been working closely with our 36 regional offices and more than 2,500 associates and Trip Experience Leaders worldwide to determine where we can travel most safely in 2021. These 10 countries in Asia and the South Pacific have demonstrated successful management of COVID-19, based on data we’ve obtained in partnership with the Johns Hopkins University Coronavirus Resource Center. We believe that low case counts, combined with explorations off-the-beaten-path and the health and safety measures we’ve put in place for all adventures, will create the safest possible experience for our travelers.

Please note: COVID-19 data is accurate at the time of writing, but cases fluctuate on a daily basis. We are receiving weekly data in partnership with Johns Hopkins University.
