Responsible tourism: Myanmar tribes and temples tour

Environment

Though there is a minimal focus on nature during this trip, we work hard to ensure it is as environmentally-friendly as possible. Many of the villages visited on this itinerary are set within rural locations; due to this, we ensure our guides are mindful about protecting the environment, and they do a fantastic job of promoting having a minimum impact to the environment whilst traveling.

Another area where we are able to be environmentally responsible is travel. This itinerary has been arranged so that much of the travel between locations is done on foot, in shared cars and boats, and even by bike. We arrange less environmentally-friendly transport only where strictly necessary for the logistics of the trip in order to have the least possible negative impact on the environment.

We ask you to be vigilant about disposing of your waste and recycle where possible. During your trip you will be asked if you have any waste to dispose of when it is a suitable time in the itinerary. This ensures we make it as easy as possible for our travelers to be eco-friendly whilst traveling.

We strongly advise all travelers to bring a reusable water bottle - this is an easy way to save plastic waste and is detailed in our ‘What to bring’ trip notes for all trips to all destinations. Your guide will remind you where and when you can fill up your re-usable water bottle. Similarly, we ask that you are environmentally conscious in other areas when possible, e.g. using air-conditioning sparingly.

Community

As regular travelers, one thing that never ceases to amaze and inspire us is the kindness and generosity of local people, and we firmly believe that it is them that make these places special should and that they should benefit from our visit. For that reason, we use local guides who are offered fair working conditions and pay, and as a priority, stay in local accommodation and visit local shops, bars and eateries in order to have the maximum possible economic benefit on the local communities our travelers visit.

This itinerary includes a number of stops in rural towns and villages. We believe that in rural areas such as these, responsible tourism can have a great impact through means of economic growth. Throughout the trip, our travelers have many excellent opportunities to support the communities they visit, for example stops to buy goods from Yangon, Mongping and Ho Pong Valley markets, and even overnight stays and meals in the family homes of local people.

Through the use of knowledgeable local guides, we ensure that the tribespeople met on this itinerary are not exploited in any way. These stops provide an opportunity for our travelers to take in rich cultures and importantly learn about beliefs and traditions. We work hard to ensure our travelers have only a positive effect on the people they come into contact with, and local guides prevent the risk of any negative impact that may occur as a result of cultural differences.
