Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
Throughout your trip many of your excursions are by foot, boat, or cyclo, meaning that environmental impact has been kept to a minimum, whilst still offering the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful scenery and striking history of Malaysia from a relaxing and personal perspective. You are also given a few days at leisure to discover sleepy towns by foot or bicycle at your own pace, rather than including additional touring days be car, to minimise your emissions. Whilst this example itinerary includes a domestic flight, the trip is entirely tailor-made and you have the flexibility to travel by boat instead.

Our suppliers are focused on improving sustainability and reducing plastic waste. We are working together with them and the local guides to offer refillable water bottles and reduce offers of other single-use items such as wet wipes or straws on a more widespread basis. We use a number of hotels who work with the Refill not Landfill initiative.
