Thailand cultural vacation
Description of Thailand cultural vacation
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.
PlanetTraveling by public transport and boat for many of the excursions means that environmental impact has been kept to a minimum for this trip, whilst offering the opportunity to enjoy the beautiful scenery and fascinating culture in a relaxing manner from a unique and personal perspective. This tour of Thailand focuses solely on central Thailand, avoiding the need for domestic flights or extended overland train or car journeys.
In Kui Buri and Kanchanaburi you will have the opportunity to support the conservation of wild Asian elephants as well as rescued tourist and logging elephants. For your time relaxing on the beach at the end of your trip, you will stay on a stunning plastic-free tropical island.
Our suppliers are focused on improving sustainability and reducing plastic waste. We are working together with them and the local guides to offer refillable water bottles and reduce offers of other single-use items such as wet wipes or straws on a more widespread basis.
PeopleThis tour focuses on involvement with local communities in Thailand, highlighting the fascinating culture, traditions and history to be found in central Thailand alone. From modern and bustling Bangkok, to rural communities in National Parks and authentic rural markets. We strive to ensure our excursions give back to the local people, ensuring proceeds go directly to the locals involved in your trip.
Throughout this trip you will stay with a rural farming family in a national park, enjoying the chance to get to know them over a home-cooked meal, and will also support local market hawkers at an authentic market outside of Bangkok, avoiding the crowded tourist market so often favoured by international visitors.
We recommend buying crafts, home wares and gifts from selected organizations that we can suggest for you, so you can help support local communities and their skills and you also know that your money is directly benefiting the local economy.
