4 Tips to Travel Safely Around Sabah

Aside from choosing products with Safe Travel Badge, you might also want to consider these few things before planning for your vacation.

Travel in less crowded areas

One other way to stay safe is by going to destinations that do not have a lot of visitors. Going to crowded areas will only expose you to the unnecessary risk of catching the virus.

Instead, consider travelling during the off-season, visit the destination during off-peak hours, or go somewhere that not many people know. At the same time, remember to keep the distance of at least 1 metre from one another!

Go with private tours and transportation

Before the COVID-19 pandemic, it is normal for people to go on tours in large groups. But that would not cut it anymore. To minimise the risk of virus spread, you should travel in smaller groups with a private tour or transportation.

Not only it is safer, but it will also enable you to be fully immersed in your travel experience and get the most out of your tour! If you have any destination in mind, do contact our customer service to customise your itinerary and transport!

Get Ala Carte or Set Meals

Any trip will not be complete if you do not have a little food hunt. However, find somewhere that serves a la carte or set meals to avoid any risk of food contamination and virus infection. Not only that, but you should also avoid sharing your food and drinks and remember always to leave a gap between you and the person sitting next to you when eating at a restaurant.
