COVID-19 is unquestionably a major problem. For those it's affected personally, its impact has been huge and, in numerous tragic cases, incalculable. For people looking to travel, it's thrown their plans into disarray. The world of commerce is reeling too, suffering...
Previously perceived as exotic backpacker destinations, promoted and made accessible by publications such as the ubiquitous ‘Lonely Planet Guide’, the likes of Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos have moved on.
