Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Malaysia family vacations

Environment

Our local office in Malaysia only uses certified guides for all cultural and nature tours. On this Malaysia trip we use guides in the Taman Negara National Park who have lots of knowledge about the plants and wildlife and how best to visit responsibly with minimal impact to the environment, flora and fauna. This ensures that our customers visit the National Park responsibly with as little impact to the park as possible.

During this itinerary we use various low-carbon modes of transport, including boats, shared transport, cycling, and also boat. The tour that you will do outside of Malacca is run by an eco tour family operated company and can be adapted for all ages, there are many different sized bikes and trailers for those who are not so confident! You will learn all about the different plantations in the village.

As well as this we also try to only use small-scale and locally owned accommodation which not only gives customers and families an authentic experience but makes sure that the revenue from this tourism goes to local families and communities who are the ones who need it the most. The guesthouse in Kota Bharu is located in a local village area where they usually have children for your kids to interact with, a great experience they should remember forever.

Our responsible travel journey starts in our office in Brighton where we provide our staff with a healthy lunch every day, we also collect our food waste for compost so that it doesn’t end up in the land fill. We also try recycle as much as we possibly can and are nearly a paperless company. The paper that we do use in our office comes from the same company we recycled it with resulting in a closed loop system.

Community

By doing this itinerary you are supporting many local families and businesses that need it the most. In Kota Bharu the Batik painting is run by the local community giving you an authentic experience and the kids will have a memorable souvenir to take home. The cycling trip outside of Malacca also directly supports the local community as the guide who takes the tours calls the family business his own.

Our local office ensures that all employees are well treated and that they exceed all the minimum requirements for salary, work hours and rest days. This also extends to local guides and makes sure that everyone directly working with our local office gets all of these benefits and is paid and treated fairly.

We advise all our customers on local customs and cultures in their travel documentation. This includes information about how to dress appropriately, respecting the local culture and also the local religion in Malaysia so that our family customers can travel in a responsible way.

We believe in putting people first, and provide lots of benefits to our staff members in the UK to enhance their work and personal life, such as participating in the ride to work scheme, and providing discounts for local fitness centres and holistic therapies, and best of all a healthy free lunch – every working day!
