Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Burma family holiday, 11 years plus

Environment

Our itineraries are carefully planned, not only to minimise environmental impact but also to ensure that local communities benefit from tourism whilst ensuring visitors enjoy an exceptional experience. For example temple visits in Bagan are combined with visits to local homes within easy reach on foot or by bicycle. Visitors then get to experience the hospitality and local way of life whilst the local communities benefit from employment and trade.

We travel on foot, by bicycle or animal-drawn carts where possible, which minimises the environmental impact. When required, motor vehicles are chosen which are both safe and comfortable and have lower emissions and fuel consumption.

On tour, rubbish is taken away with us to be recycled. In Yangon for example, rubbish is given to private rubbish collectors who later sort it and sell it on to recyclers. Some of the rubbish is kept for re-use within the business such as the use of bottles for plants in their organic garden

Community

Our partners in Myanmar employ and train local staff, not only as a way of putting money back into the community but also to help keep the business effective and sustainable. Local staff have excellent knowledge of the local area and can deliver services more swiftly. Also, by increasing employment opportunities, young people are more likely to stay in the area, rather than migrate to other areas, or even other countries, in search of work. Many people have set up small businesses to meet the demands from responsible tourism. Our Burmese partners work closely with local communities and authorities to facilitate sustainable travel in the area, sponsoring festivals and conserving antiques to enable the communities to maintain their traditional way of life. On tour, we visit small, local restaurants, off-the-beaten-track places and traditional artisans where guests can take part in hands-on activities and purchase unique handicrafts, thus contributing to local incomes.
