Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: South East Asia tour, Hanoi to Singapore

Environment

Traveling on local public buses, sleeper trains, trains, boats and minibuses, this tour gives you plenty of opportunities to get to know the local people of South East Asia while using public transport. This also minimises our impact on the local environment and provides income to local businesses. Local guides will also lend their expertise to the journey, explaining the historical background and cultural significance of the places we visit. They will help you to appreciate the importance of respecting the environment of these heritage sites and understand the conservation efforts undertaken at various parks.

Community

We visit a number of destinations on this expansive tour that give a true insight into South East Asia and educate passengers on the history and culture of these destinations. For instance, in Vientiane we visit the COPE Centre to learn about the disastrous effects that the bombing from the Vietnam War had on Laos. Here our passengers are urged to donate or buy gifts from the shop to support the victims that have been left with severe disabilities.

All our travelers are encouraged to learn a few words and phrases of the language and interact with the locals as much as possible to enhance their social experiences on tour. In addition to the phrase books which are available for purchase, our tour leaders are able to teach you useful words and phrases on the road. Your tour leader will brief you on etiquette such as the clothing required and behaviour expected by visitors to temples and other sacred places. There are different guidelines for different cultures, so please bear that in mind so that as we travel we can avoid offense wherever possible. We will also visit many local shopping districts and markets along the way, giving you plenty of opportunity to support local merchants. We would encourage you to purchase traditional handicrafts from local artisans rather than mass produced goods from chain stores, as you will learn more about the skill involved in the production, while also support the craft.

Your tour leader will introduce you to many local restaurants and bars throughout the tour, helping you discover the authentic local cuisine. Staying in locally owned accommodation also allows us to give back to economy. For instance, in the Mekong Delta we stay at a family homestay on the Delta itself, giving us an authentic experience into the way of life of the locals.

A bit disappointing really

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


So many! Snorkelling for the first time in Nha Trang (and second time in Ko Phi Phi!) was fantastic, jungle trekking in both Thailand and Malaysia was awesome and handling a tiger cub in Thailand was the cutest thing in the world.

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Try new experiences! Mine included motorbiking, tubing and chilli frog porridge.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


Yes. All the local guides we used were awesome and deserved our money and tips. The one improvement I would suggest is a local tour leader.

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Outstanding - varied, educational and stacks of fun.

Read the operator's response here:

We are delighted that you enjoyed your tour in Southeast Asia. It really is a fabulous part of the world and it is great to hear when people enjoy themselves there as much as we do.

We would like to add, however, for anyone reading this and is concerned about the handling of tiger cubs due to the conditions in which these animals are kept, that this is not an option included in any of our itineraries in the region. However, because our tours have free time in cities where this is possible, and because this remains a popular activity with travelers, we cannot prevent clients on our tours who want to visit these places in their own time.

Once again we are very grateful for your comments and hope you'll choose to visit other parts of the world and really get to learn about the local culture and the people that live there with us in the future.

Kind regards.

1. What was the most memorable or exciting part of your vacation?


There were so many highlights to this vacation which covered so many countries, there are a few of the memorable ones, overcoming culture shock in Hanoi, having a suit made in Hoi An home to 400 tailors, touring the Mekong river on a longboat, visiting the museum in Phnom Penh, seeing the sun rise over Angkor Wat. Visiting the floating villages on Tonle Sap asia's largest fresh water lake near Siam Reap. Staying in Luang Prabang the beautiful Lao city on the Mekong. Staying the night in a hilltribe village in northern Thailand, snorkling on the coral reefs around Ko Phi Phi, 4x4 driving, drinking tea in a tea plantation in the Cameron highlands. Exploring great cities like KL and Singapore

2. What tips would you give other travelers booking this vacation?


Have a sense of adventure and realise that Asia is different in so many ways to our western way of life.

3. Did you feel that your vacation benefited local people, and minimized impacts on the environment?


I am not sure what you mean by minimized impacts on the environment, I hope that local people benefited from our tour but I cannot be sure!

4. Finally, how would you rate your vacation overall?


Fantastic, but tough going at times!
