Description of Java and Lombok 11 day tour
This trip can be tailor made throughout the year to suit your requirements
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetMinimise plastic usage: At the beginning of 2018 we launched our ‘One Bottle At A Time’ initiative to replace disposable plastic water bottles with refillable canisters across our destinations. By the summer of 2019 in Java we will be providing refillable water canisters in our vehicles, meaning our travelers are not generating plastic waste through the daily use of water bottles (which on a full day of touring can be numerable). We also send our guests a wooden toothbrush to help avoid using hotels’ disposable plastic brushes, and educate clients about the limited recycling facilities in Asia, and best-practice regarding waste-reduction. Within our UK offices we operate strict recycling policies and make sure everyone in the office uses reusable crockery and cutlery.
Reduce transport emissions: During this trip you will participate in walking tours of some towns and take bicycle trishaws, as well as undertaking a day cycling tour, to reduce the use of vehicles simply for sightseeing purposes.
In order to truly contribute towards a healthier planet, we believe in putting our efforts into traveling responsibly and donating towards conservation projects. This is why we’ve put together the Selective Earth Programme, which offers all our clients the opportunity to contribute towards conservation projects in Asia. We have teamed up with the World Land Trust (WLT) – an international conservation charity who actively conserve Asia’s rainforest whilst supporting local communities. We work closely with the trust to identify which projects are a priority for funding, to ensure our donations keep on making a difference. We are currently contributing towards the conservation of the Khe Nuoc Trong forest, in Vietnam, as well as planting fruit trees in the surrounding communities.
PeopleStay local: One of our core values is to collaborate with local, responsible companies and partners who share our focus, beliefs and passions. We work mainly with local guides, local operators and hotel partners, and will always offer small, local accommodation options to clients.
Our vacations are designed to enable our clients to immerse themselves in local places and experiences, and we make sure that, wherever possible, the income they bring to a destination goes back into the community. Within this Indonesia itinerary a visit is made to an independently owned coffee plantation to learn about coffee production. Also included is a batik making lesson at a traditional batik factory where visitors learn about the Javanese philosophy behind some of the patterns, the cultural importance of batik and the need to preserve this ancient tradition.
We have developed a system that allows clients to donate any unused currency to local charities that are vetted and selected by our partners.
This tailormade itinerary is based on private travel in Java and Lombok, not in a large group. By traveling in this way we have minimal disruptive impact on the communities visited and are able to stay in small, locally run accommodation, where possible, that is not suitable for larger coach tours.
