Responsible tourism: Sarawak Rainforest music festival vacation

Environment

When visiting fragile environments, remote areas and national parks, we operate a “take in, take back out” system. To reduce single-use plastics on our trips we often provide reusable bags, encourage the use of reusable drinking bottles and are working to increase access to places to refill them. On this tour everyone is given a canvas bag to use to encourage them to say “no” to plastic bags in shops they might visit.

We believe wild animals should be viewed – without contact or interaction – doing what they do best: living in the wild. On this tour we stay in Gunung Mulu National Park, one of the best national parks in Sarawak. Whilst here we ensure we follow all the local laws and support the conservation projects run by the local government. Our travelers are always asked to take any rubbish with them when hiking through the parks, to ensure no litter is left behind.

Community

The Rainforest World Music Festival is a unique three-day event that brings together famous musicians from all over the world, as well as indigenous artists from the beautiful island of Borneo. Informative afternoon workshops followed by amazing evening performances, make this festival a celebration of many different cultures and customs from around the world. Travelers will also have the chance to learn all about Sarawakian music, from both the festival and a local homestay. One of the festival performers will play host to our group at his home, and passengers will be able to see how the sape – a local musical instrument – is made and played.

The running of this trip supports the local people and the local economy. We use many local operators for transport and accommodation, including staying in the home of a local family. We encourage our passengers to eat in local restaurants and support local businesses where possible too.
All our leaders and local guides are Malaysian, and our office based in Kota Kinabalu employs locals from Borneo. Our company strives to create employment opportunities in the countries that we travel to and our staff is made up of many different people from all over the world.
