Is Langkawi Ready To Welcome Travellers?

While everyone agrees the travel bubble programme that kicks-off in Langkawi next week is the lifeline businesses on the island need, not everyone feels the island is ready to welcome visitors once again. We discuss how the move will impact the hospitality segment, tourism players and travellers, and some of the lessons we can take from Phuket’s Sandbox plan.
