"We are in a real period of flux, globally and regionally right now." On this week’s show, Gary and Hannah sift through the 10 top travel and tourism stories in South East Asia over the past 7 days as regional and global economic factors take hold. The journey takes us to Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam & the Philippines, plus New Zealand and India. En route, we discuss tourism entry fees, fly-cruise travel, new flight routes, overland travel and NTO slogans. Plus, our regular "Quality Tourism" update discusses some disparaging comments about backpackers by New Zealand's Tourism Minister - and a vociferous pushback from the nation's travel industry.
