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.
PlanetUnfortunately, Cambodia has a big problem with plastic pollution and so on this tour all our travelers will receive a canvas bag to use throughout. This small gesture will help to assist in the campaign to stop the use of plastic bags whilst shopping and visiting local market places for souvenirs.
Water is a precious commodity in this part of the world and our trained tour leaders are well versed in advising travelers on initiatives to manage their water consumption whilst in Cambodia. Plus, in our private vans we supply families with large communal bottles of drinking water, so they can refill them as and when they need to.
As a company we take a real interest in the environments we visit, on this trip in particular we take our travelers to the Angkor Centre for Conservation of Biodiversity that saves animals from trafficking. We also stop off at the Banteay Srei Butterfly Centre that features a live display of a stunning variety of Cambodian butterflies. This project also trains rural families living in the area about the importance of sustainable butterfly farming, the value of the forest and the importance of conserving it.
PeopleOur company is committed to employing local leaders for all of our trips and that includes our family range. All of our leaders are specifically trained on responsible travel and are encouraged to live and breathe it throughout each and every departure they run. All travelers are briefed on responsible travel upon their first welcome meeting, which is almost always on the first evening of each trip. We source produce locally throughout the trip, eat at local restaurants and encourage our travelers to purchase souvenirs from local artisans.
All aspects of this trip (on the ground) are operated by Cambodians (most of whom live locally) including all our leaders, vehicle drivers, local site guides and accommodation providers. There are opportunities to visit several temples on this trip. It is respectful to cover the shoulders and knees when visiting temples in Cambodia. Our leaders dress in this manner and encourage travelers to do the same in order to show respect for the sites they’re visiting and the local people for whom these sites hold great significance.
We have a foundation that was set up to empower travelers to have a positive impact on the communities they visit. It now supports more than 50 local, grassroots projects around the world. Over the past 15 years, the foundation has distributed over AU $5 million to projects tackling areas such as sustainable development, human rights, child protection, environmental conservation, wildlife protection, education and healthcare. In Cambodia once such organisation we support is The Children's Surgical Centre in Phnom Penh, which provides free surgery and treatment to children. We also collect children's glasses that are then reconfigured and fitted by professional ophthalmologists. If you can help, please bring children's old spectacles and give them to your leader at the start of your trip.
