After much consideration, we’ve handpicked the perfect trips for post-pandemic Asia. Based around the themes of Open Spaces, National Parks, Wellness and Island Retreats, each journey is designed to help reacquaint you with the planet, after months of limbo and lockdown.
One small silver lining of the Covid pandemic is that, as widely reported, we are witnessing a remarkable recovery of the world’s national parks.
Asia is no different, and from glacial Siberia to the jungles of Borneo, the immense diversity of the continent’s national parks cannot be overestimated. In truth, national parks can be subjected to over-tourism on occasion, so giving the habitats and their inhabitants time to breath is very important. Some of the parks we’ve visited recently take us back to 20 or 30 years ago, while the remoteness of others and their crowd-free landscapes make them perfect natural havens for post-Covid travel. It is, once again, a great time to visit national parks.
So choose your adventure: contribute to community-led conservation in Laos’ Nam-Et Phou Louey, spot the swish of an orange-striped tail in India’s Bandhavgarh, walk among some of the world’s oldest trees in Japan’s Yakushima National Park, or ride horseback like the local nomads through Kyrgyzstan’s Chon-Kemin – Asia’s National Parks are the epitome of an extraordinary and beautiful world we that sometimes take for granted.
