Responsible tourism: Vietnam culinary tour, tailor made


WASTE, WATER, ENERGY, BUILDINGS, SUPPLIERS: We are committed to environmentally friendly practices whilst traveling in Vietnam. We promote the use of small boutique hotels where possible with good energy management and waste disposal practices.

In this particular itinerary the experience supports the maintenance of a traditional Hue building. It is a local design made from materials sourced from the nearby environment. Food at the house is sourced from close markets keeping the food mileage to an absolute minimum.

Halong bay can be a traveler’s dilemma – its beauty and iconic UNESCO heritage recognition makes it a great attraction but this in turn is spoiling the area in terms of numbers of tourists and in terms of damaging the local environment. We use traditional junk boats in Halong bay that, where possible, travel to less busy areas with the aim of reducing the impact the tour has on local ecosystems. We also have a section specifically addressing issues in the bay that travelers should consider when visiting in our predeparture pack. Ships are repaired by local engineers and to this extent we support the local economy.


We believe in spreading the wealth brought into countries by tourism. Getting involved in local markets is a fantastic way not only to exchange culturally but also to support ordinary local people in their way of life. All the food tours in this itinerary contribute to this aim and we brief clients before departure on cultural norms and bartering expectations.

We encourage visitors to get off the beaten track in this itinerary and experience authentic markets. Hotel boards are usually kept to breakfast only to encourage travelers to support local restaurants for other meals throughout the day, profiting the local economy, and your taste buds!

All our guides are paid a fair wage and we encourage travelers to tip guides appropriate to the levels of the efforts and service. We train our guides to strict guidelines, they are all local to each area of Vietnam and they are all English speaking, and they all aim to try and keep the culture and environment preserved.
