Small group cultural tours

Typically you will be sharing your experiences with between 4-20 like minded travelers (depending on the trip, operator and how many others are booked on the trip) and you'll have a group leader with you. Whether you are traveling alone or with friends it's good value, and a great way to meet new people! While itineraries are pre-planned there is some flexibility and you'll have plenty of privacy. This trip will appeal to travelers of all ages who enjoy meeting new people as well as experiencing new cultures.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Small group tours to Thailand

Environment
Low Impact Transportation: Thailand has lots of options for getting around making less of an impact. We always try to use local transport. This trip gives you the chance to try out the public buses, overnight sleeper trains to go from Bangkok to Chang Mai in the north of Thailand and of course the famous Tuk Tuks, cycle rickshaws, longboats and Songtoews. Getting around as the locals do not only allows you to experience the culture on a deeper level, but the same way it is at home, using public transport is the most sustainable way to go Ė after walking and cycling of course!

Protecting Nature & Wildlife: Visiting national parks is an important way to contribute to conservation because entrance fees are the core method of funding many parks, from maintenance to security and protection from poaching. Visitors help the parks to pay staff and keep the park protected. We take a bus to the Khao Sok National Park and stay in simple, yet comfortable, fan cooled bungalow style rooms (fans are a much better alternative to energy-draining air conditioning!). This trip gives you the option to explore the Khao Sok National Park which covers an area of 739km2. Thanks to other protected areas (Klong Saers and Khlong Nakha) next to Khao Sok, the actual protected area measures almost 4000 km2. The dominant forest is lowland rainforest and is about 160 million years old, which makes it older than the Amazon!

Community
Supporting local culture and businesses: There are a multitude of opportunities to support local businesses and immerse yourself in Thai culture on this trip. From the colourful markets to the bustling food stalls and cafes, the choices for eating and handicrafts are endless and the money is staying in the local economy - a vital way for tourism to make a positive impact. Activities that take you to markets, locally-owned restaurants, community projects, NGOs, localsí homes and villages are vital to the local peoplesí ability to truly benefit from tourism. People in rural communities, especially in developing countries, often lack access to the economy due to their location, lack of funds, or ability to market their products. Visitors offer them the chance to supplement their income whether itís simply by buying handicrafts, staying overnight in someoneís home, eating a meal at a family-owned restaurant, this trip makes contributing to the local economy part of the adventure. Chang Mai is a centre of handicraft production, with a long history of silverwork, woodcarving, pottery-making and weaving. Not to be missed is the Night Bazaar, a series of covered markets, shops and stalls that offer the best selection of handicrafts in Thailand. Our style of trip, traveling, eating and staying with the locals, puts you right at the heart Thai culture. On this trip you get to experience first hand the cultural and religious differences between Northern and Southern Thailand.

Homestay with Hill Tribe: This trip also allows you to further immerse yourself in the culture and support indigenous tribes on the hill tribe trek. We trek through Thai jungles and overnight in traditional hill tribe minorities in their basic bamboo huts, learning about their traditions, customs, and day-to-day life. There are plenty of chances for local interaction and the chance to support their work by purchasing local handicrafts. Their huts are very basic; this is a chance to experience extremely low-impact and natural living.

Explore your spiritual side: An important Buddhist centre since the 14th century, Chiang Mai is home to more than 300 temples. Many visitors come here to attend meditation retreats, massage classes or yoga lessons.

Other Activities to Support Development Initiatives in Thailand: Visit the centre for the disabled, visit a local leper colony, cycle through the countryside, eat at Cabbages and Condoms. Cabbages and Condoms is a restaurant (now a chain in Thailand) with a mission. Proceeds from the restaurant and adjoining gift shop which sells items made by local people are given to the Population and Community Development Association, a non-profit organization founded in 1974 which supports birth control, environmental conservation, rural development and AIDS awareness.

As a Tour Operator
This company has operated on responsible tourism values since its inception. From an environmental perspective, our initiatives extend from our company offices to our tours. Our head office and stores are powered by a local green energy provider, we encourage cleaner transportation methods for staff, and purchase all supplies from a local green business supplier. Our office is as paperless as possible and our brochures use 100% PEFC certified sustainable paper. We offset emissions from all corporate flights and our marine vessel, and encourage our travelers to do so by providing an online platform through Sustainable Travel International. Supporting communties is and always has been at the heart of our tours. We provide business opportunities to local people by employing local guides and tour operators. The majority of accommodation used on our tours are small-scale, locally-owned hotels.

Our tours mainly use public transportation wherever possible and are small in size to keep our impact on fragile sites and communities as minimal as possible. We monitor the sustainability of our tours through traveler evaluations in order to allow for continuous improvement. We support the local economy and business initiatives by visiting locally-owned shops, restaurants, and markets on our tours. Many tours incorporate community projects as a way of supplementing community income and supporting community development projects. In 2003 we founded a non-profit organization as a way for our travelers and our company to give back to the people and places we visit. We develop community projects around the world in the areas of health, education, small business development and environmental conservation. Funds are raised through traveler donations and fundraising. The company pays all administration fees which means that 100% of each individual donation goes directly to the community projects.

Each year, we continue to support and develop new partnerships with more community projects and community-based tourism initiatives worldwide, in Latin America, Asia and Africa. Tour leaders provide travelers with information about local environmental issues in their respective regions, and provide suggestions of how we can best protect the local environment and culture. To reduce the amount of waste created on tours, tour leaders also encourage travelers to use refillable water bottles instead of disposable plastic, cotton tote bags, reusable batteries, etc. We also include destination-specific information in our guidebooks, which are provided to each traveler including information particular to the local culture and environment and tips on how to be a responsible traveler.
