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.

We carefully choose suppliers in Southeast Asia who reflect our responsible and sustainable ethos. Our current supplier not only has a foundation that works with, supports and advises many different projects and NGO’s in Asia; they are also Travelife certified. Travelife is an internationally accredited certification scheme that helps organisations improve their social, economic and environmental impacts that they have as a business.

For this itinerary we have also partnered with a local organic farming social enterprise in Hoi An. This Vietnamese youth-led enterprise contributes to the success of a citizen movement to improve local’s lives through urban organic gardening. Their initiative is based on sustainable gardening and sustainability education, and from a tourist perspective, offers glimpses into traditional village lives and local unity with nature to those who visit it. Travelers will learn about organic growing processes and they also have a chance to join volunteers and villagers in some gardening activities should they wish. There is also an opportunity to take part in rice planting with local farmers in Ky Son.

This tour includes lots of guided walking tours and optional cycling tours. Wherever possible, we encourage sustainable transport options. We are also on a mission to reduce plastic consumption in our destinations and now offer reusable water bottles to all customers traveling to Vietnam. We have partnered with a large number of local organisations to offer refill stations and carry much larger bottles for top-ups whilst on tour.

The Impacts of this Trip

The entire focus of this tour is introducing travelers to local traditions and customs and giving them an opportunity to get ‘hands on’ and learn from the locals. We are passionate about supporting local social enterprises and community organisations and feeding money from tourism directly back to the local community. This one tour supports four excellent organisations – Artisans d’Angkor, the Phare Circus, Living Arts Tour and Thien Tan Huong. All of these organisations have been instrumental in helping vulnerable local people find work and support themselves financially – whether that’s young people or those with disabilities. At the same time, they’re also educating and preserving traditional arts and crafts for years to come.

This tour also includes a night in traditional homestay in accommodation in Ky Son village. Homestays offer a fantastic opportunity to establish relationships with the local people and get a more in-depth understanding of day-to-day life in rural communities. As part of the homestay experience, guests can also help out with manual labour in the fields or around the home, giving them a genuine sense of purpose.

Where included,, all meals will be taken at local restaurants or street food stands. One meal is a local BBQ – another great opportunity to interact with the locals.
