Since the start of the pandemic, travel around the world has become very difficult and many destinations impossible to get too. This especially the case in Asia. There are only a few destinations one can travel too. Of these the best place to travel during COVID in Asia is by far the Maldives. It’s a safe and easy destination. There is no quarantine required and only a PCR test before arriving.
Maldives was actually one of the first country’s to open up tourism since the pandemic began. It has been open since the end of July 2020 for most nationalities with visa on arrival. Now more than 54% of the country is fully vaccinated and in most resorts all the staff are fully vaccinated.
Boring statistics and data aside, when one arrives at any of the resorts the staff will tell you it is optional to wear the face mask. At first the this seems strange as this has become the new normal. We have been revoke the privilege to show our faces to breath fresh air. So it is truly a breath of fresh of air to finally be able to walk around without. To be able to enjoy without worrying anymore.
escape the pandemic to paradise
In this sense the Maldives as a holiday destination offers two great attractions. The obvious a paradise surrounded by crystalline turquoise waters as well as a paradise free of the worries from the pandemic world. Therefore the Maldives is the best place to travel during COVID in Asia.
The staff at the resorts are extremely caring and everything is cleaned and sterilized regularly. Even though we as tourist are free to go without a mask. They still wear masks in most resorts, it seems strange as they are all vaccinated. The thing is they live in small isolated communities, so an out brake would be a disaster, and the resort would have to shut until things would be brought under control again.
So if you are looking from an escape from your COVID reality in your country. Maldives is best place to travel during COVID in Asia.
