Dear Koen,

Greetings from Happy Trails! Asia

At Happy Trails! Asia, we hope that you are doing well at your respective location and that you and your family are healthy and safe!

We would like to proudly inform you with this update that all Happy Trails! Asia destinations and offices have qualified for the Safe Travel Stamp by the World Tourism and Travel Council. Please see below for more details.

Happy Trails Asia! qualifies for Safe Travels by WTTC

Having received the governement certification (see more below) we now comply to all criteria set by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) regarding save travel . Our teams worked hard over the past months to ensure that all our services meet the requirement set out by the WTTC as well as local governments. Up to this morning, the only part missing was the official “re-opening” certification from the government. Hence, we can now proudly carry the stamp.

The designed stamp will make it easy to recognize companies around the world which have adopted health and hygiene global standardized as outlined by WTTC.


We are happy and proud to announce that today 9 September we were amongst the first 23 DMC’s that officially received the certificate of compliance to the new normal protocol for our operations from the Balinese government.

This certification is following the assessment from the government and an on-site inspection that was done on 13th of August. The requirements for certification are for example social distancing, cleanliness, hand sanitizing, temperature checks, procedures for pax in house, face masks usage, logbook file and much more.

Note: At current in our destinations, a re-opening certificate is only required and available in Bali.


Next to the updates shared in this newsletter, we are happy to share that any information, related to our polcies, expected opening dates and the new normal.

May all be found in one place, regularly updated for your convenience.
