Responsible tourism: Vietnam holiday, tailor made activity

Environment

Our partners coordinate an annual litter cleaning event in the Mekong delta, which helps preserve the sensitive ecosystem and its fishing communities in partnership with local villages. The Mekong Delta is vital for the communities' livelihoods and food. We promote environmentally sensitive activities to enjoy Vietnam's landscapes including hiking, canoeing and cycling, which has less disruption on wildlife and the landscape. In northern Vietnam, we use a lodge that is the first eco-lodge in the country, Mai Chau, powered by off grid renewable energy, reducing carbon emissions. Mai Chau is additionally a member of Responsible Travel. Our cruise experiences in Ha Long Bay have a strict code of operations, ensuring that no litter is left and all plastics and glass are recycled where possible. Sails are used by the boat crew on the bay cruise to reduce engine time and unnecessary carbon emissions. We include three night train journeys as a more sustainable and carbon efficient way of travelling and avoiding the number of internal flights.

Community

Guesthouses are used in the tribal communities and locally owned hotels are selected to reduce economic leakage and ensure money reaches communities. The tribal communities in Vietnam's highlands are dependent on subsistence agriculture and community based tourism, being so geographically isolated. The communities have managed to preserve a traditional way of life and happy to maintain their skills through tourism experiences and cultural exchange. We work directly with Vietnam National Parks Board who employ local guides from communities within protected areas and manage community run lodges, which guarantees local communities benefit from employment from environmental protection and eco-tourism. Local guides are trained in both hospitality and English language skills. We advise clients prior to their departure not to give any money or sweets to children when asked, but instead educational materials and equipment such as pens and books. Our local partner signs an agreement to guarantee the fair pay of staff and service providers and against any form of child or adult exploitation.
