Responsible tourism: Borneo wildlife cycling vacation

Environment

On this trip, the visit we organize to wildlife sanctuary and national parks are those that are set up by recognized NGOs and government agencies that help rehabilitate and preserve the orangutan, sunbear and turtle. Volunteering programs are incorporate into the bike tour to encourage participant and create awareness. A major part of our tour is to provide travelers with relevant education to minimise damage to the environment, wildlife and marine ecosystems and how they maybe able to help. Our travelers are encouraged to sponsor some of these official programs such as the orangutan adaptation program that let to their continue involvement in the cause in many years to come after they return home, rather than a one-off contribution.

We provide travelers with suggestions for Code of Conduct for Environmental responsibility:-
- Our Pre-Tour “What to Expect” information provide accurate pre-trip information concerning the specific to a particular trip including the social, environment and political situation;
- We recommend the guest bringing their own re-fillable bicycle water bottle and avoid using one-off plastic bottled water.
- We also discourage the use of plastic bags, suggesting customers to bring their own dry bag or small waterproof backpack. During tours, we recycle wherever possible, and try to keep our waste as low as possible;
- We never allow traveler to take pieces of coral or other endangered plant life home as a souvenir.

Community

We build up our partnership with as many local as possible, from the local boatman, homestay, street stalls and small cafes. As much as possible, we stick to the same people who are then familiar with our expectation and they will expand their operation as they grow with our business. One example is the wooden sample crossing that we used in the city of Kuching, a dying traditional way of commuting in the rapidly modernized Kuching. We have used this specific sampan crossing provider for more than 3 years for all of our local bike tours.

We provide travelers with suggestions for Code of Conduct for Social responsibility and ways to minimise negative impacts on local cultures:-

-We recommend the traveler when buying souvenirs, head to the shops of traditional artisans or local cottage industry for locally made products. That will be helping to keep traditional crafts alive, while also supporting our small, independent business owners and artists. We always favour local products over imported items, but avoid buying things made from the tusks or horns of endangered animals (such as hornbill and coral), or from at-risk plants (such as orchid and pitcher plant). We educate travelers how and why purchasing locally produced goods and services - souvenirs, crafts, meals and guides from locally owned establishments has beneficial effect – communicate a sense of the significance of this to local communities;
- We also suggest ways to minimise negative impacts on local cultures such as giving the best possible advice about bargaining, as well as advice on giving gifts or money to beggars, children, and people they have just met;
- We recommend the traveler always ask first before photographing or videoing people. Asking before clicking also offers the chance to have a conversation and to connect;
- We advice travelers to dress respectfully with an awareness of our local standards that varies with each culture and religion, including dressing modestly at certain religious sites and check what swimwear is suitable for pools and the beach.
