Informative letter from Catherine, Mai Globe Travels' Director
I hope you and your family are safe and well during these difficult times. Tourism and travel have pretty much been put on hold by the Covid-19 pandemic, but places are gradually beginning to open up and we can start exploring our beautiful globe again. I am so excited! We’ve been working behind the scenes and are ready to help you plan your holiday.
Sri Lanka is now open to tourists following Covid-19 health and safety protocols. We are happy to say that Mai Globe Travels has been certified by the Sri Lanka Tourist Board as a “Safe and Secure” travel agency allowed to operate in these special times. Let us do the work for you!
The Maldives is also open for a blissful escape. Let us help you organize your dream stay on a sunny island.
The borders of Vietnam are still closed and they do not have a precise opening date. In the meantime, check out our site, start exploring options and let us help you plan, so you are ready when their borders do open.
Travel is becoming possible again. Reach out to us for ideas on where to go and how to do it safely.
Thank you for your support and loyalty,

The government has been so far quite successful at controlling the spread, but unfortunately, the number of cases has rapidly increased since June 2021. Some of the bigger cities such as Hanoi, Danang and Ho Chi Minh are on lockdown. Masks, hand washing, and body temperature checks are required and the people are very compliant.
