Nepal still a good destinations: it is SARS free

Interesting! being Nepali I can still not believe it. We do not have the best infrastructure in the world, nor are we well equipped at the airports, though now the screening has started. Yet we are definitely SARS free as to date.

The WHO has already set up a quarantine facility for suspected victims and has been running trial runs, but we have not had a real suspect so far.

This is good news for those of us in the travel business, as this installs a small ray of hope that people who are still interested in travel (after this scare) might choose our country to come.

Thank God we still have some airlines arriving from the West and which do not go through SARS affected countries.

Any takers to Nepal?
