Responsible tourism: Highlights of Cambodia Holiday, tailor made

Environment

On this private Cambodia journey:

• Avoid the big busses and use small and more efficient modern cars and take a fun boat rise to the remote temples of Sambor Pre.

• Avoid the chains and dine at some of the local (and highly rated) restaurants like Romdeng in Phnom Penh.

• Choose to visit the Child Safe center in Phnom Penh which works across Cambodia to protect at-risk children.

• We issue all our travellers with a 'tread lightly' guide that is filled with information about how best to limit their environmental impact in Cambodia. this includes tips on how to engage in friendly barter for goods with the locals, how help local businesses, tips on how to deal with street beggars and, from eating to shopping, how to limit your environmental impact in Cambodia.

• On all of our private journeys our local guides are on hand to help clients make informed decisions. They can advise on how to shop ethically, like avoiding rare produce or goods that may have been sourced from endangered or at risk environments. In more rural areas we can guard against any potentially damaging actions like hiking in delicate areas, littering and avoiding certain shops/industries

• As well as offering insights our guides can give guidance on preserving the local built environment like the temples of Angkor.

• We work with Cleaner Climate carbon consultants to fully offset emissions from our Australia and UK offices. The funds from the offsets support clean energy projects in Thailand, India, and China. Moreover, as a local and international operator we are in a unique position that allows us to better mitigate our effects on the local environment. Examples include using modern vehicles that reduce carbon emissions, avoiding poorly run hotels and educating our local guides on environmental issues.

Community

On this journey in Cambodia:

• Visit the Child Safe Center in Phnom Penh and learn about the work this NGO does across Cambodia.

• Apart from breakfast, this journey gives you the freedom to dine at local restaurants. This process is a win-win, local restaurants receive much needed patronage and you get a fantastic insight to local cuisine.

• We have been a long-time supporter of the Angkor Hospital for Children in Siem Reap. We currently offer financial support, hold regular fundraisers and sponsor a nurse to work at the hospital.

• Unlike most tour operators, our guides in Cambodia are recruited and trained by us. We offer rigorous training programmes that increases their skills sets and provide an enhanced experience for our travellers.

• Our Cambodian guides are always on hand to assist with travellers questions around responsible travel and can help travellers avoid common pitfalls (like begging, child labour) that do little and often encourage irresponsible practices.

• Although sincere, many attempts at responsible travel can breed dependence and an increasingly disturbing example of this is the rise of 'orphanage tourism' in Cambodia. By working through NGO's and local groups (ChildSafe) we are able to avoid such pitfalls.

• As well as having offices in Australia, the United Kingdom and North America, we have offices in several cities in Indochina. Our direct presence in Asia means that we are much better able to control the content of our itineraries, the actions of our suppliers, and the style of our Small Group Journey and tailor-made travel arrangements. In short, our offices in Asia give us leverage in implementing our responsible travel policy.
