MEDICAL - SOUTHERN ASIA

Travellers to Southern Asia should take precautions as they would elsewhere in Asia.

Outside the major centres, medical care facilities are basic, though a private clinic is preferable to a government hospital. Some of the diseases known to exist in Asia include hepatitis A and B, typhoid, tuberculosis, dengue fever, malaria, Japanese encephalitis, diphtheria, tetanus, polio, rabies and HIV/AIDS.We recommend you take adequate preventative measures to minimise your chance of exposure to these health risks. We strongly recommend you consult your preferred doctor for the most up-to-date health advice at least one month prior to travel.

TRAVEL ADVICE - SOUTHERN ASIA

Southern Asia is now a relatively safe part of the world to travel in.

The usual common sense precautions are advisable. Avoid poorly lit streets at night and take taxis rather than cyclos when travelling at night. To help find your way back to your hotel, make sure you obtain a hotel address card to show drivers where you want to go.

Throughout your stay, always keep a photocopy of your passport, airline tickets and credit card numbers. These documents should be kept in a safe place separate from the originals. You should leave valuables in hotel safety deposit boxes wherever possible.Keystone Journeys will always monitor in-country situations and follow the warnings or advice issued via Governmental and other International organizations. At this stage it appears there is no threat to the safety of any Keystone Journeys clients on the ground in the parts of Southern Asia we travel to.
