Note: All products in the website are being reviewed in view of the
current pandemic on account of the coronavirus. At this point (i.e. when
the website was being updated in late Dec 2020 / early Jan 2021), we regret
that we are unable to recommend travel from the UK to the majority of
the countries in Asia that we deal with. We are hoping that the situation
will improve (not only for the anxiously waiting travellers and the tour
operators in the UK but also for the thousands of people connected with
the travel trade who are more than just associates for us.). When and
how quickly travel is likely to resume is unknown to us with the earliest
time likely to be in the autumn of 2021. Many of the products may need
to be changed at the early stages for the safety of the travellers and
the locals at these countries.
